Bellflower and its B.S.:
Until now, Bellflower was not much different than other cities and governments:
The California Constitution limits City Government, but officials want more power!
  • So, they become Corporations to be able to act as General Law Cities.
  • The State Legislature provided the category of General Law City to bypass limits:
    As a General Law City, constitutional "separation of powers" limits are circumvented:
       -> a City acquires Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Powers simultaneously!

    In 1995, Bellflower (Cleveland, Smith, Bomgaars) tried to ban private property:
    They tried to ban RVs, boats, and trailers on private property.
    They tried to ban shipping containers (safest containers, even in an earthquake)
    Thanks to the Municipal Election: March 4, 1997,
    We got a new City Council!!!!:

    On the Side of the People:
    Mayor
    Ruth Gilson
    Councilman
    Joe Cvetko
    Councilman
    Art Olivier

    Wavering, but
    sometimes for the People":
    Councilman
    Ray Smith

    Rarely for the People:
    Usually for More Spending and bigger Government,
    Continually demonstrates ignorance of the principles of our Republic,
    (a Bellflower teacher ignorant of the difference between Republic & Democracy???)
    & he doesn't want to listen the people:
    Councilman
    Randy Bomgaars

    If you feel fenced in by the city, compare the Bellflower by Pioneer Fence
