Baldwin Park election candidates dropping like flies

Two candidates in the Baldwin Park November municipal election have been disqualified because of election code violations.

Local businessman Greg Tuttle, who was running for mayor, and Victor Macias, who was running for the council, both had their filing forms rejected today because they were not registered voters in Baldwin Park at the time they pulled their nomination forms, according to Deputy City Clerk Laura Nieto.

Tuttle, who owns Tuttle’s Parts Exchange on Ramona Boulevard, said he recently moved to Baldwin Park from Pomona just to run for mayor. But he filed update voter registration affidavit two days after pulling papers for the open seat.

Anyway, Tuttle said, he didn’t think he “had a chance in Hell” to win. Instead, he’ll now be backing Pacheco in his run against incumbent, Mayor Manuel Lozano.

Tuttle also says he’ll be moving back to Pomona now ….

  • BP for me

    Tuttle is such a meathead. But I admit he’s smart enough to know he didn’t stand a chance.One thing is for sure. If he is backing Pacheco,Pacheco will do well to get Tuttle off his back. Tuttle’s endorsement would mean certain death for anybody at the polls. We here in BP don’t want or need tuttle having anything to do with our local government.And there are enough of us who will make sure that Tuttle knows that the only thing he runs is his mouth. Oh, and Crazy Cruz Baca Sembello is singing the blues now that her Lover from Pomona left.

    I think we can add to these definitions “to defeat one’s self with their own stupidity.”

  • So Cal FACTS

    Did he actually move to BP? Is there any legal ramification if he had lied about residence when he pulled the papers? It seems costly to move just for the election you know you can’t win, then to move back immediately.

    Doesn’t sound right.

  • Tuttle you Mor”a”n!

    This is hilarious! Gregory, you lame, if you had any sense at all, instead of saying “you’re moving back to Pomona now”, now would be a really good time for you to move your trailer from Pomona to BP, because when the District Attorney’s Public Integrity Unit comes a knockin at your door, they’re gonna look for evidence to prove you were a resident and a registered voter when you pulled your forms – and we all know, there is none. Tsk tsk tsk, Greg, didn’t you read the small print “signed under penalty of perjury”? Mr. Pomona, now would also be a good time to call your brother who’s an attorney (that is of course if he practices criminal law), and your daddy who’s a retired sheriff, to inquire about the punishment for a person who commits PERJURY.

  • WC Resident

    Can anyone tell me who is running in West Covina? That information should be available on the website, along with the council meetings. Some residents haven’t forgotten about the council’s decision to work in secret. For those of us who have to work at night and cannot attend the meetings, the webcasts were a great way for allowing the residents to see what the council was doing.

    The definition of Bejarano is to jetk ones self off in a box with a UPS outfit on. This picture will go down as one of the best in political stupidity.

  • Baldwin Park Resident

    Ricardo Pacheco is a good candidate.

    Cruz Baca is a good candidate.

    Manuel Lozano has been there so long and the city has only become worse under his watch. Need proof?
    Businesses continue to leave the city due to Lozano’s unfair Business policies.

    We need change. We need new Politicians. We need to bring Home Values back up. We need to bring Businesses back to Baldwin Park.

  • What?!

    This Baldwin Park Resident sounds more like the Pomona Bozo.
    Ricardo Pacheco is a maybe at best.
    He was taken to court for a bad check. It was about work done for him that he wouldn’t pay on.
    He is also way too close with CARA.
    Cruz Baca is a rambling (have you heard her get up and speak) CARA sympathizer who has ulterior motives.
    Anyone who is with that group is not for this City but for CARA a minority misanthrope business group that wants to control this city.
    CARA is backing these people.
    CARA wants our City to stay a low income city.
    BECAUSE CARA wants to pay low taxes,low rent and low wages.
    You won’t find any good changes with these people!

  • Floozy dating corrupt politician

    Blanca Rubio and Roger Hernandez are an item. The two have been going out for a while now.

    Oh brother! Whats this world coming to?

    Floozy dating corrupt politician.

  • BP’er

    As a resident of Baldwin Park who has come to develop strong feelings for this community. I want whoever is elected and in position to make changes for this city. To decided to take this city forward.
    Baldwin Park has great potential.
    We now have 15.4 unemployment in this city and much of it is because of past decisions of those in power to keep this city from growing.
    They were mostly self serving businessmen
    We have those that want to keep this city from moving forward. We can not allow them to have their way.
    Some say and believe that moving forward will displaced the low income in this city. Or that it will change this city and bring in high brows. An absurd idea that is fatal and has no merit.
    What makes this country great is the idea that we can all have a better quality of life.
    Baldwin Park should not settle for less.

    Quoting What?! “This Baldwin Park Resident sounds more like the Pomona Bozo.”

    What is right. What are you talking about? I am not from Pomona.

    What do you mean Ricardo is a maybe? He had more votes than any other councilman. In addition, he has support from various important groups throughout the City and State. He actually wants to get things done.

    Cruz Baca is also a good candidate. She’s been all over the place and I’m sure she will make Council.

    Has anyone heard of Henry Huang?

  • To BP Resident

    Again, I said you SOUND like the Pomona Bozo. Didn’t say that you were actually from there.
    Did you find out if Ricardo was taken to court for bad check writing? Doesn’t sound like it.
    Cruz Baca is a good candidate because she’s been all over the place? What the hell does that mean! I know some women that have been all over the place. That doesn’t mean that they should be on the Council.
    And no I have never heard of Henry Huang. So? That sure doesn’t mean I’d vote for those two. That didn’t make sense.
    Hey,look who’s supporting them. CARA. Find out about that group. And if you still want them for mayor and council. Then we know who you’re with. And it’s not for this City.

  • BP Resident

    First I want to say your a RETARD and obviously have a vested interest in having the current party re-elected.

    Did you read Sergio Corona’s Police Report?

    Baldwin Park is corrupt. We already know this.

    Manuel Lozano’s been re-elected so many times.

    Put the two together.

    Stop these failed redevelopment projects.

    Stop trying to close all the Businesses in Baldwin Park to bring in expensive shops that no one in Baldwin Park can afford.

    Tell Manuel Lozano to allow Superior Grocery to open in the Shopping Center at the intersection of Maine and Ramona. His 1290 ordinance is restrciting Business on Ramona Blvd.

  • To the Real RETARD

    Yes, I have an invested interest in this City. You on the other hand have an invested interest in CARA. Superior Grocery? When we already have Villarta, Value Plus, Ramirez and the Blanquita.You sound like the RETARD.

  • From BP

    We here in Baldwin Park want something better. We don’t need to be told not to bring in “expensive shops”. That’s stupid. When someone say’s that, we are being told we are poor and what are we thinking wanting something better. The whole idea of this country is wanting a better quality of life! That’s the very reason why immigrants come to this country. FOR SOMETHING BETTER. Most of the shopping from Baldwin Park is in Covina and West Covina. To get something better. These people who say BP doesn’t need or can’t afford these better shops are afraid of something. Either change {for the better} or are certain local businesses (CARA) that are afraid of higher taxes, rents, and wages. We don’t need this backward thinking.
