‘You can’t keep your ***** city clean?’

El Monte released the “administrative summary” today looking into the allegations that Mayor Ernie Gutierrez acted inappropriately at a city function. Here is the

report.pdf

.

The report concludes that there does not appear to be sufficient materials presented to hire an independent investigator to re-evaluate the matter. 

“I would further recommend not spending additional staff time on this matter. The Mayor may wish to meet with the Sister City Commission to air any concerns and to allay any fears that these issues could recur.”

Mayor Gutierrez in the report stated that none of his actions were inappropriate.

There were nine commissioners interviewed. One of them claimed that she heard the Mayor “speak in Spanish about graffiti removal equipment (“…you can’t keep your (Spanish expletive)  city clean?’) Additionally she stated that she heard the Mayor say that he can get anything he wants donated to the new Sister City, as he runs this (same Spanish word) city.”

In the report, the Mayor stated that the one Commissioner who stated she had overheard the comments, “was too busy assisting and runnin gthe dinner that she couldn’t have overheard any statements.”

    Hey! Why did you take out the p***** expletives??

  • El Monte Resident

    That’s an “investigative” report? How long did it take to conduct that investigation and prepare that report. If that is a sample of the work done in El Monte, is it a wonder our city has so many problems?

  • the Taxpayer

    I still think a recall should go forward,watch and see I’d say you would get 60% for removal. I’ll sidn the recall.

  • taxpaper and dissappointed reader

    He said what!!!!! hang the SOB, how dare a mayor say such expletives. Give me a “expletive” break. That is a lot of gas passing for such a piece of “expletive” story.

    It is to be expected that the sister city committe will give little to no information on what took place. Remember they are appointed by the city council and the mayor. To go against Mayor Gutierrez is the kiss of death as far as their positionas a commissioner. They would also have the code enforcement and the El Monte Police to deal with. There is too much strong arming, retribution and pay back that is done in El Monte. “If you play you owe, big time, if not you pay even worse’” That is the sad reality in the great city of El Monte.

    I totally agree with you. You really didn’t expect to get the whole picture on what really happened at that event, did you? Come on what planet are you from? We are talking EL MONTE. MAYOR GITIERREZ. Everyone there that was present knows the truth. He acted unprofessionally as the mayor. He is known for his “mishaps in El Monte.” That is his M O. What became of his accident at the Food for less? His big expensive blue tandra got it real bad. The truck had to be towed away. Then the El Monte Police took the druken mayor Ernie to his apartment on Durfee. Where is that report? Will that be sugar coated too? Lost? Misfiled? Fed to the paper shredder? Holy Moley!!!

    Unfortunetly I was at this event on Cinco de Mayo. My friends and I were invited to attend. We are sorry to say that Ernie Gutierrez did come in drunk with another woman. She was not Olga, his wife. He introduced her as his beautiful novia or girlfriend Gracelia. They both smelled of strong ahcohol. It was hard for them to walk normal. They staggered alot. They danced and carried on like two creatures on viagra. It was brutal watching him touch her like a common woman. His language was very slurred and difficult to understand. He and his date drunk more beer and a nice bottle of expensive tequila that was brought from Mexico. He sat at the head table. His voice was loud enough that we could hear him use bad, inappropriate spanish words. Of course we understood what he was saying. This was not the place nor time to act that way. Unprofessional, like a hoodlum, gangster off the streets. We could not help but talk about what had happened during the days that followed. He proved to be an embarresment to us who attened and our city. We felt sorry for the Sister City Committee and the two delegations from Mexico. They were very angry and left right away. We really couldn’t blame them. Ernie and his date should of not attended at all. He was not needed nor would of he been missed at all. He needs to resign. It is best for our city. We all saw this for ourselves. Shocking and in bad taste.

    The police report of an elected official is considered a public document. Don’t think that you will find anything worth wild. He will probably say that some one hit him. Remember this is Ernie Gutierrez of El Monte. He walks on water. Protected by all at city hall and the police. What a joke this guy is. Worst off are all that get involved and cover up his crap.

    What a looser.

    As long as there are Police Chiefs like Ken Weldon and his clones that will follow,oneafter the other at city hall… mistrust, corruption and kaos will govern all of El Monte. Your city council and mayor will be hand selected and will owe their puppet masters. Ernie has become their best little brainless puppet.

    If Mayor Gutierrez whishes to meet with the Sister City Commission it is more than likely that the city manager Mussenden is telling him to do so. That really means that not all the comments were put on the report and that Ernie did act like a fool. Why did Ernie arrive late to the event? Where was Olga, his wife? Why did Ernie and his date leave for 45 minutes. This angered the President, his wife and the other councilmembers from Tuxla, Mexico. They all left with their entire delegation. Even former City Manager Juan Morales left. He was embarresed and disgusted with Ernies behavior. Was he questioned? The Zamora President, his wife, councilmembers and delegation were also very upset and also left the Cinco de Mayo-r disaster. Call them and have them write a letter as to what really happened. They will tell the “truth”. They could care less about El Monte now. Talk about a slap in the face! Ernie and his date sat at the master table. Gomez and Barrios at another as did Wallach. They could only see across the room. But they knew all that was happening was dead wrong. Ernie kept drinking the strong tequilla. He sat slumpted in his grand chair. Totally, totally drunk as a shunk. He smelled real bad too. His pants appeared to be wet in the groin area. It was pretty bad all around. Many of us saw this right before our eyes. Mayor Gutierrez embarrassed us all, especially our invited guests.

    When we were called in to be interviewed on what had happened, Ernie stood outside. He kept looking at us with his mean, condensending face. Some of us found this to be like a stocker. He should of been locked up in the city jail, for that entire day. I could not sleep at night because of his sinister,angry eyes. I find him to be someone that you dare not double cross. He still has a gangster, old school, pachuco image. The women were afraid of him. Why did it come to this? Something has to be done about the mayor. He is a danger to the city and a sick person who is ready to go off on whom ever.

    Two people attending that Sat. had vidio, that was about 10 to 15 min long. I approached the 1st guy to see if I could get a copy. He said ” You nuts this will ruin him. I said thank and got a copy from the other person I’ll wait for the ruling on this issue. Then I’ll put it on ” YOU TUBE” I love this.

  • Cinco de Mayo-r Disaster

    I too was there. All I could think of was how to we leave without being noticed. But then the show got real good. Mr.Gutierrez and the lady with him went at it on the dance floor. It was sad looking. Two old drunk people going at it. DISGUSTING. He looked like a dog it heat. She like a cheap second hand store dresser. We tried to keep from laughing and still bursting out.This made our city look like we invited the town drunk for a great event. Come to find out it was Mayor Ernie Gutierrez. What a terrible evening that was for me and the other guests around us.
    Mr. Gutierrez needs to leave his seat, as mayor and give it to Mr.Gomez. He can run it way better and with so much more class and respect.

    Why hasn’t there been an investigation by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. A cover up is still a cover up by the City Manager Jim Mussenden on Mayor Ernie Gutierrez. He has been seen drunk in public in the city. IWe all have seen him this way in our city and at city events where there is alcohol being served.It makes his story of “I did not do it” or “I was not drinking” that much more worse for him when he drives away intoxicated. He has no credibility, whats so ever. He is a sorry excuse for the mayor of our beautiful city. We need to recall him and any one else who is his backer on the city council. Those who cover up for him at city hall must be fired right away. We have taken as much as we can. Our patience is gone. We must band together and clean out the trash at city hall once and for all. Enough!!!

    How can Ernie Gutierrez be sure of what the commissioner heard or not? He was intoxicated the entire time. From the minute that he enetered the facility with his girlfrind, Gracelia to the time that they both came and went. Why doesn’t he take a lie detector test? Let’s see if he is innocent. Yeah right. He knows what a big disgrace he was that evening and what he did. Everyone else who was there from the city saw and heard it Ernie. Try to tell them your stupit, ridiculous lies. You can’t convience them other wise. No matter how hard Emily, you buddy, Jim the city manager and Clark your attorney try to make it all better. They all know the sad truth about you, Ernie. You do too. You are your worst own enemy.
    Stay home for the sake of what entegrity is left in
    El Monte. You owe us that much.

    Can’t wait to see how many people show up at the council meeting to defend Ernie Gutierrez. He has called everyone in town to help clean up his tarnished name. He has become that desperate. Seems like someone is worried about the truth coming out. Get ready for a pony show for the sorry of an excuse mayor of El Monte.

  • Resident of El Monte

    Can any tell me if it is true that the District Attorney’s Office will have someone present tonight at the El Monte city council meeting. Will the media be there as well? I need to know so that I can get parking tonight. It is going to be a good old 4th of July. With out the fireworks. Can’t wait.
    Ernie better hold on to his bottle for dear life.

  • Fed Up Resident

    I could not make the council meeting. Had to work late. Something Ernie, Emily and Barrios know nothing about. Well let’s see what new shocker the 4 dumbshits vote on tonight. Did the DA’s office show up. I hope the haul Ernie and his croonies away. Emily will be holding on to her foot long sandwich, Ernie to his jug of tequilla, while Jay and Art snore away. Mussenden will be holding the door open to the jail anyways. While Clark checks his book on City Attorney for Dummies.
