Ken White, Ontario City Council candidate

Ken White is running for City Council to help make Ontario the best place for families to live, work, and play. To be the best, Ontario needs safe neighborhoods, free of crime and graffiti, and employment opportunities that pay workers at least a living wage. Ontario needs a pedestrian-friendly hiking trail down the middle of Euclid Avenue, a dog park for families with pets, and a skate park for the youth.
Most of all, Ontario needs a new, honest and honorable leader to speak for these common sense concerns of the community.
Ken White is that voice. He is an attorney with experience in both state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels. He worked on the largest federal death penalty indictment in U.S. history. He has been honored for pro bono legal services on behalf of victims of domestic violence and AIDS/HIV patients who suffer unlawful discrimination. He is a college educator, teaching American Government and Criminal Law at Cal Poly Pomona and Chaffey College.
He is a good citizen, who loves his family and who wants to serve the community.
Ontario faces many challenges in the years ahead that we need to address together. The first challenge is public safety. It is the primary duty of government to provide security so that citizens are free to exercise their liberties. To make Ontario safe and to stop crime before it happens, we should put more peace officers (on foot, on bicycles, on scooters, etc.) in face-to-face situations with the citizens they protect and serve. More cops on the street and better communication with citizens will equal less crime in the community.
Other challenges include the re-development projects, especially the downtown renovation project, which will require strict supervision to protect the taxpayers from waste and neglect. These development projects require a simultaneous investment in needed social programs to continue to make the community attractive to investors and workers alike. We need more public transportation options, and we need to find a better solution to homelessness than “tent city.” And we need to act boldly and quickly to create “green” jobs by making major investments in solar, wind, and native landscaping projects.
Together there is no problem we cannot solve.
These and other policy matters need your input. To share your ideas and concerns please contact Ken White at kenwhite@votekenwhite.com.
And be sure to vote on November 4th.

Paul Vincent Avila, Ontario City Council candidate

The struggling working residents of Ontario beg for their own effective voice that is not being drown and stifled by the good-ol’-boys self-serving empowerment. There is not one Democrat on City Council! Theres not one combat veteran on Council! There is not one Mexican-American on City Council who is proud of his cultural heritage! So whats all the hullaballo, its designed to stigmatically smear my best shot for election as the only Mexican-American name on the ballot? it’s about City Council race outcome! It’s about fleeting empowerment grasp of the good-ol’-boys of OMSD’s old vanguard.
I have resided in Ontario for 31 years, many of you know of my many contributions for parents, children, and Classified employees. I sincerely extend caution to you to beware of outsiders bearing special interest group endorsements!
Why is the North western/eastern and older south Ontario areas continues to be neglected? Why are not installation speed bumps that would greatly act as safety deterrent to protect children and senior citizens from reckless speedsters near Palmetto ave. and Locust street? What about “Rick Rodriquez’s dead-man’s-turn” near the the intersection of South Palmetto and Philadelphia Avenues?
Why is the city Council not “hearing” the will of the affected residents who continue to rally for reasonable justice and their ongoing litigated protest clearly means they don’t want Super-Wal-Mart facility in their neighborhoods? What about the effects of ehausts fumes from the projected increase in congestive traffic that will potentially affect the breathing health of children and senior citizens?
Ontario’s population has increased to nearly 180,000, then, why are trash and water surcharges fees continue to skyrocket? Should it not be the downward?
Why is there not one Democrat on City Council, even though, Ontario’s Democrats residents dominate by 46.5% over 34.1% compared to registered republicans?
