Comment on Antioch Council approves hiring homeless coordinator on split vote, asks staff for costs on homeless solutions by Ramona Mayon /2019/09/10ah05acc/#comment-1341219 Fri, 13 Sep 2019 04:42:52 +0000 /?p=36408#comment-1341219 I resent a tenants’ rights crisis being lumped in with the impact of homelessness. You are being manipulated by the council’s clever attempt to mask their failure to deal properly with Joe Bosman’s more than two dozen tenants (some displaced, some still th here).

Lamar Thorpe said re. 701 Wilbur Avenue: “clarification that ‘we’ did not do this.”

I would beg to disagree. You all knew we were out there. Joe Bosman says in the East Bay Times article of 9.09.19 that in 2007 Code Enforcement came out and did nothing. Councilmember Lori Ogorchock admits in a hearing in 2017 that she visited the property on 11.08.16

In 2016, when the City approved an apartment complex, staff report calls it a “vacant lot”.

In 2017, when Code Enforcement “discovered” the park, in that staff report, we were called blight with illegal housing.

Two weeks ago, this long-simmering issue was slipped in under “homeless encampments”.

Now at least, as a result of the lawsuit my husband and I filed 18 months ago, Mayon v. Bosman/ City of Antioch, the staff is being forced to reconsider the outcome originally planned for our friends and former neighbors.

Comment on Antioch Council approves hiring homeless coordinator on split vote, asks staff for costs on homeless solutions by Eleanor O'Donnell /2019/09/10ah05acc/#comment-1341176 Thu, 12 Sep 2019 00:25:58 +0000 /?p=36408#comment-1341176 Again, our Mayor and city council provide us with nothing. What a bunch of clowns! Instead of increasing a salary, they should be fined for taking up space. Antioch has had some unbelievable idiots on the city council in the last 80 years, but with the exception of Lori, these guys take the prize.

Comment on Three teens arrested in Antioch Monday for Sunday night carjacking at gunpoint by Renee Sparks /2019/09/02ah-02apd/#comment-1340880 Tue, 03 Sep 2019 21:39:00 +0000 /?p=36353#comment-1340880 I sincerely appreciate that Antioch residents are helping APD and not tolerating crime in our town. Now it’s up to the Justice System to try and figure out what to do with these boys. That’s what they are just boys. What kind of family is raising each of these boys? Unfortunately there are too many cases and not enough money to figure out how to rehabilitate or help them I’m sure.
So what it it probably means is that they will go back into a terrible system or back to the people that have lost control of them and now we just have 3 more criminal men in a few years.
It’s just a sad situation.

Thank you Law Enforcement Agencies, when cars are impounded laws need to be created too fine for the retrieval, the value of the car. This would maybe deter this Horse…. And if they relinquish the ownership, donate to a family who can use a car.
