I would like to see much more opportunities in Bell. I believe there aren’t much opportunities, along with the high school in Bell, “Bell High School.” I do not enjoy much of my time here and would prefer living in a different city for more opportunities and diversity. The people here aren’t very much social and so I do not have the chance to make friends as much as I would like to. The city also isn’t the safest but it is not dangerous. Though, as a female, I would feel unsafe anywhere if I am alone, in any city.
Bell is a friendly community with a mix population of latinos/hispanics and muslims. It counts with a main shopping center with a variety of food from Tacos, Pizza, Chinese food , Ramen, Buffets. Bell also has three parks and many Elementary schools and a High School. For night life the biggest attraction is Borders Brewery on selected day they have activities and live performances. Bell also has a once a month fair with so much entertainment, rides, food, snacks and music.
Per the recent COVID -19 Crisis, I do not agree with how Bell has handled the situation. We have just elected the same mayor as the last term and he has not given the notice to stay inside or be penalized for it. I am worried about the well being of the community seeing that 1/2 our population in the city is elderly or sick. My own aunt has Lupus and we couldn't correctly get supplies she needs because the citizens of Bell wait in line inches apart. I am sick of the way COVID has been handled in my city.
