ONTARIO - The Ontario City Council has performed poorly and citizen view of Ontario city government is deteriorating over issues related to Councilor Freddy Rodriguez, according to results of an online survey.

And nearly 9 out of 10 people who participated in the survey think Rodriguez should resign.

The survey drew participation from 410 people before it closed Sunday evening. The survey was intended to gauge local sentiment about Rodriguez and the city council. The majority of participants reported they lived in Ontario with others listing themselves in Nyssa or Vale. More than 200 offered comments in the anonymous survey.

Rodriguez has become a lightning rod in the community, his conduct a topic of statements to the council in . . .
