PICO RIVERA – A local political group has failed to round up sufficient signatures to recall three Pico Rivera City Council members, but the head of the group said Monday they’ll refocus and try again. This time, however, members of Pico Rivera Community for Truth in Politics, or C-TIP for short, will push to recall Councilman Ron Beilke, who they claim has abused his power, said Raul Murga, C-TIP’s executive director. “He is the primary source of the problem within our city,” Murga said. “We raised the political concern in the community and it brought to light the abuse of power which Ron Beilke continues to display.” One of the two other council members targeted, Pete Ramirez, was ousted from office by voters in council elections earlier this month. The other, Councilman David Armenta, won’t be included this time because at he “saw the error of his ways,” said Murga. His group needed to collect and submit more than 15,000 signatures from registered voters by a deadline of Friday. Murga declined to say how far short of the required number the group fell. But he blamed the campaign’s failure on bad weather and the fact that many voters were out of town during the recent holidays. For more, pick up tomorrow’s Whittier Daily News.
Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bruyne 1 Kevin De Bruyne has admitted he was wrong to join Chelsea.The Belgium international moved to Stamford Bridge in January 2012, arriving from Genk for £7million.However the attacking midfielder failed to nail down a first-team spot at Chelsea and was sold two years later for £18m to Wolfsburg.De Bruyne has thrived on the pitch since joining the Bundesliga outfit, with 11 goals and 15 assists in 29 games for the second-place Die Wolfe this season.And the 23-year-old has now confessed that it was perhaps a bad idea to join Chelsea when he did.“The decision to move to Chelsea was not the best,” De Bruyne told Sport Bild.“The club are a different world and Mourinho never told me why I was not playing.“Maybe it would have all gone differently if Chelsea had paid €45m for me instead of €8m.“I might have received more consideration if my transfer fee was higher.”
