The pot just keeps on stirring in Upland these days.

Former Mayor John “J.P.” Pomierski resigns just before he and another businessman are indicted by a federal grand jury.

Two others are charged as co-conspirators with Pomierski.

Now word on the street is that someone has filed a complaint with the San Bernardino County District Attorney that newly-elected Councilman Gino Filippi doesn’t reside in the city.

It’s being alleged Filippi resides outside city limits in either unincorporated San Antonio Heights or Rancho Cucamonga.

It seems Filippi has been told that he’s been followed around for months now and that the former mayor has been bragging about having him followed.

Apparently when Filipppi was considering his run for council, he and Pomierski had a few words.

Filippi says the former mayor told him he couldn’t run for a seat on the city council without his permission.

According to Filippi, Pomierski told him “Don’t you know I’m the king of Upland”.

Does it get any better than this?
