Is there a division amongst Black members of the Long Beach City Council? 9th District Councilman Rex Richardson took to social media to denounce Vice Mayor Dee Andrews pulling a switcheroo on a housing bond measure proposed by Richardson. Strangely the measures co-author is blatantly contradicting what he is telling voters to gain another term on the council.
Documents show that Andrews was a co-author of the proposal to place an affordable housing measure before voters, then at last night’s council meeting, Andrews voted against the measure. So did Councilman Al Austin.
Why are Council members Andrews, Austin, Stacy Mungo, Suzie Price and Daryl Supernaw, usurping the voters right to choose?
2UrbanGirls is especially shocked at Councilman Dee Andrews reversal as his campaign statement says “he has created opportunities to bring in affordable housing units” and he votes against a measure he is using in his campaign. Perhaps in his old age, which he refused to disclose, caused him to forget what he wrote.
It’s time for FRESH and NEW leadership in District 6. Andrews is the equivalent of “Al Bundy” using his good old days of playing football to keep Long Beach senior citizens voting for him.
Voters should make their voices heard on March 3rd as Dee Andrews, Al Austin and Daryl Supernaw are on the ballot. #TimesUP
