May 4, 2022 ~ Hews Media Group-Community News reported last week that Leonard Mendoza threatened HMG-CN editor Brian Hews in a series of emails.

The emails contained several spelling and grammatical errors, with some people commenting on the HMG-CN website that Mendoza was likely intoxicated at the time; Mendoza said he was sober.

Mendoza responded to the social media story claiming the emails were fake calling Hews, “Fake News Hews.”

“That tells me he works with Section 8 Scotty Johnson and his buddies,” Hews said, “Johnson and Leticia Vasquez use that nickname; he has a nice ringtone,” Hews said wryly.

Mendoza’s responses to the social media article were the same as his emails to Hews, containing several grammatical errors and elementary school-style spelling errors.

Now Mendoza has made another crucial campaign mistake. The question people ask, “was Mendoza weakened when he approved, printed, installed and commented on his expensive campaign posters?”

Large full color campaign posters declare Vote for Mendoza! At the top left, it tells readers “ELECTION DAY JUNE 6”.

The election is June 7.

A post on Mendoza’s page shows Mendoza doesn’t see the error, bragging about the posters.

Many will question Mendoza’s abilities; When creating posters such as Mendoza’s, the printer always sends a proof for approval, so Mendoza missed the glaring error four times, once in designing the poster text, once in the proofing process, once by putting up the posters and once again by taking pictures. for his social media page.

Underneath the post, his campaign manager, Pereza, replied, “Love it, thinking about it, it might confuse people he says June 6th.”

One person commented on social media: ‘Mendoza printed fake flyers and violated city policy saying he was mayor when he wasn’t, and now he’s making this kind of mistake ? I don’t want this guy making decisions as a city councilor; something is going on with him. Printing the posters and not even noticing the error tells me he has no attention to detail that is required in a position on the city council. How to hang posters without noticing? Blind drunk ?
