What's going on in Sunland/Tujunga? We have a new poster who says the local govt is taken over by Scientologists.
Local Scientologists manipulating voting results
LOCATION: Approximately 20 miles north of the Pac base (Big Blue) in Los Angeles, is a community called Sunland-Tujunga. There are a lot (probably hundreds) of Scientologists who live in this and closely surrounding areas of La Crescenta, La Canada and Lake View Terrace. The Delphi school is also nearby.
HISTORY: Local voting for favorite businesses has been offered to Sunland-Tujunga residents since 2000. Voting for favorites continues for a full year then at the start of the New Year, the winners are announced. They are awarded plaques to proudly display, named in the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council (STNC) newsletter and put on their website.
In 2006, the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council (STNC) took over collecting the votes.
WHAT HAPPENED: Somehow, STNC “inadvertently misplaced” ballots cast for favorite businesses in 2010 effectively sabotaging the results, according to this report. The voting period was extended for a short time, but the end result was that Tomi Lyn Bowling (STNC First Vice President is currently auditing on OTVII) is accused of giving “all the prizes to her Chamber of Commerce and Scientologist friends.”

There is also a Scientology “good news” newsletter for the area:http://www.voiceofthevillage.org/iss...3_01012011.pdf
