    Antioch welcomes animals from all species…

    This city serves as an evacuation center for all thugs, rapists, druggies, dealers, child molesters, and the like for the entire Contra Costa County. Just look around next time your in Antioch. Take notice of the demographics that ruin this city and use up all of our city resources like police services, code enforcement, city cleanup and the like.

    Remember City Council loves the way our city has been regressing. Harper, Rocha, and Tiscarino voted down the Landlord Rental Fee Ordinance, yet they have the audacity to raise taxes when they could have collected millions to fund the needed resources through the Rental Fee Ordinance
