I received a peculiar newspaper today called “Haidar Hawthorne News”. The paper is published by Councilman Haidar Awad and the editor is his campaign manager Chris Robles.
What is troubling is I received it in the mail and it doesn’t list the required campaign disclosures.
It does state it is Awad’s “personal paper” and isn’t created with public funds but it doesn’t disclose if this is paid for by his reported campaign for mayor or his family’s auto center.
I’m sending to you because you previously wrote about Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia having to give up his interest in the Long Beach Post once he was elected. Is Awad allowed to publish a newspaper while being a sitting councilman?
I’m surprised the Daily Breeze isn’t all over this.
Far from clueless in Hawthorne
Haidar awad is a predator who preys on residents who buy his broken down cars from his family’s business-hawthorne Auto square. Check out his “F” rating from the better business bureau. Cheating consumers is how the Awads bought haidar’s seat on Hawthorne city council and these same ill-gotten gains are trying to buy the office of mayor.
RE: Please review his 410s and 700 forms. The Newspaper is in violation? the FPPC & DA would be best to inquire. Family businesses include things he hasn’t disclosed.

We like when the mayor is one of us. Meaning live here. When you live here you can make better decisions for the people of Hawthorne.
Does he actually liver there or just own businesses in the city?
Just owns rental property. Family business is Hawthorne Auto Square
It is wrong to make campaign at this time of corona virus.
He is using this critical time to leverage his run for Mayor in November. He wants residents to believe he is on the front lines delivering critical resources and information. He dont care, doesn’t live in Hawthorne, lives in PV.
Please review his 410s and 700 forms. The Newspaper is in violation? the FPPC & DA would be best to inquire. Family businesses include things he hasn’t disclosed. You will never see him in pubic in Hawthorne, to busy in Hollywood and LA playing childish games. Plus he’s a drunk! pretty and pathetic kid!
