<br />Orozco, Norma <br />From:Jonathan Hawes <> <br />Sent:Tuesday, February 02, 2021 9:02 AM <br />To:eComment <br />Subject:Public comment for next city council meeting <br />Good evening. My name is Jonathan Hawes. I served as El Monte City Clerk from 2013 to 2018. Since 2015 I <br />have been a whistleblower on Andre Quintero and Team El Monte’s embezzlement of $10 million from the El <br />Monte Promise Foundation scholarship fund. I have interviewed dozens of El Monte residents who have <br />privately confirmed that Promise funds were used for fraudulent trips to Vietnam and Haiti, a bogus consultant <br />in Salt Lake City, house repairs, and other criminal activities. I have myself been interviewed by the FBI about <br />two dozen times. Documents proving the embezzlement have been submitted to the FBI and the District <br />Attorney’s Office and are now available to the public online <br />( I am asking <br />the Santa Ana City Council to call out these crimes and protect the vulnerable residents of one of the poorest <br />cities in southern California. El Monte children, who should’ve been provided with college scholarships, were <br />robbed. Andre Quintero and Team El Monte members must go to prison. If you have any questions, please call <br />or text me at (626) 863-2149. Thank you. <br />1 <br />
