Jovita Mendez is running for Brentwood City Council in District 1 and bragging about self-funding her campaign. That’s easy to do and say when you don’t pay your bills and you’re spending your creditor’s money. That’s because Jovita and her husband appear to have a judgement against them for over $100,000 from Ford Wholesale Co., Inc. of San Jose dating back to 2007.
In addition, she has judgements against her from Discover Bank beginning in 2009 for $13,590.60, with recent court records from late 2019 and early 2020, that appear to indicate the money Jovita took from them hasn’t been paid back. Additionally, court records show Jovita defaulted on a debt with Capital One in 2011.
Here’s the question, did Jovita ever pay those creditors back? If not, she’s spending their money on her campaign to try to get elected!
Yet, Jovita has the audacity and gall to attack other candidates for accepting campaign contributions from people, companies or organizations she doesn’t like. How hypocritical.
The voters should reject Jovita Mendoza for Brentwood City Council. How can we trust that she will “be a good Steward” of our community and handle our tax dollars correctly, when she “appropriates” money from her creditors, avoids paying it back for years (possibly more than a decade!), uses “their money” to promote herself for city council and can’t handle her own personal finances?
