COUNCIL MEMBER BRUCE WHITAKER AND THE REST OF OUR FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL AWOL! By Barry Levinson


Barry Levinson

The members of our Fullerton City Council all play their fake roles.

It is pure fiction until the time comes for them to vote for more employee raises and benefits as well as doing the bidding of the special interest developers blessed by the UNELECTED S.C.A.G dictators. Every time the city comes up with substantially more money it is almost never for the benefit of the Fullerton citizens but rather a few special interests that feed the troughs of our council members come payback time or should I say election time.

Each and every council member are willing to throw its citizens under the bus for their own self-interests at certain times, some more than others.

I bring up a FOUR to FIVE Million-dollar boondoggle concerning the Fullerton Golf Course that will be continued over the next decade and beyond.  Yet not one council member had a question for me or would even discuss the issue at council. Total silence by all five council members.  Why?  Is it because they care about the Fullerton taxpayers?  Is it because they want to ensure that every last dollar is spent for the benefit of the citizens of Fullerton?  I think we all know the answers to those questions.

Bruce Whitaker did however remove me from my Park and Recreation position last May and has still not replaced me on that board. Based on your performance sir the $750 a month you get from the city in salary plus benefits is a colossal waste of our tax dollars. What have the taxpayers received for the payout of over 60K over the course of your 6 years serving on our council?

Fireworks, more high density development, S.C.A.G. planner Ma’Ayn Johnson who represents taxation without representation, phony redistricting map favoring only the council and their developer friends and of course ignoring five million dollar problems but speaking out about an audit committee.

Can you tell them apart?

I am an auditor sir, who used those skills to uncover issues for which you responded with my dismissal.  The six years of Whitaker’s career is highlighted by one constant phony whine…. I can’t get anything accomplished because I am only one person!!…. Blah, blah, blah.  Thanks to the voters we now get to hear that very weak complaint for the next four years!

A three dollar bill?

Eight months later, Council member Whitaker has still failed the people of Fullerton by refusing to name a replacement for me on the Park and Recreation Committee.  It is his responsibility alone to appoint a replacement.  Your lame excuse that you are only one person does not apply here sir at all!

 

 

There is absolutely no excuse for his not naming a replacement. There is absolutely no “Good Reason” for him to leave this position VACANT FOR EIGHT MONTHS AND COUNTING!!! Just one more example of his failed leadership!!

 

Question: Why Do We Allow Our Elected Representatives To Not Fulfill Even Their Basic Duties and Obligations To The People Of Fullerton?

 

What is so incredible is that these self-absorbed, self-centered politicians think they deserve to reach higher office! The character and integrity of our political class is very near the bottom of the barrel.  We the people must start demanding better.

 

Someone extremely bright once said that if you want to know the level of corruption in your city government, look at the condition of the city’s roads and other infrastructures. 
On that basis, the City of Fullerton must be one of the most corrupt cities in all of the United States.

 

After another rain and the streets in my neighborhood are a complete disaster….every few feet another bigger and deeper pothole has surfaced. It is a disgrace! Every elected City of Fullerton council member past and present deserves our scorn! 
  I say past and present for these roads have been a disaster in the making based on city neglect for decades! Another 4 or 5 million dollars in the coffers over the next 15 to 20 years would sure be nice. Oh yeah, I came up with that savings based on the Fullerton Golf Course debacle and every one of our council members totally ignored the problem! Happy New Year to one of the most corrupt city governments in all of California.

P.S. How did you like how our two top officials, the City Manager and Police Chief went out with a flurry of corruption.  Our Police Chief chooses not to enforce the law and our City Manager leaving the scene of an accident with damages.  What does our city council do but to thank these two thugs for their service? Only in one of the most corrupt city’s in California doe this happen!  Maybe our two most recent very rich retirees, Danny Hughes and Joe Felz can make a substantial donation to our city for street repair!!

    Still waiting for you to explain your unexplainable election math, Mr. Auditor.

    It is appalling that Council member Bruce Whitaker would remove a committee member and not choose a replacement for 8 months and counting. Whatever he is thinking you can be sure it is not in the best interests of the people of Fullerton. It also clearly demonstrates an abandonment of his fiduciary responsibility to the citizens of Fullerton as well.

    We can only hope that he after 2 and one half terms in office he takes the reaquirement not to serve more than 12 years seriously and retires permanently from the council.

      Whitaker is a total sellout. You knew that

      • #4 by Barry Levinson on January 16, 2017 - 12:33 pm

        I certainly know that now Anonymous. He did fool me for a number of years. He is a very shrewd politician nothing more!

    Council member Whitaker has no excuse for not filling a vacancy he created himself.
    People should not accept such a dereliction of duties by an elected official. He should be held to account!

    Proving once again that raises very often have little or nothing to do with merit in the public sector, Bruce Whitaker just got a raise from $750 a month to $800 a month for the mostly ceremonial tittle of Mayor.

    Please note that in our fair city, the Mayor is appointed by the other 4 council members not the people!

    Nice road photo you’ve got there. So which Fullerton road is it from because I don’t recall it snowing lately.

      Barry being a dishonest hack? Say it ain’t so!

        Bruce is and the article says it’s so

        • #10 by Anonymous on January 17, 2017 - 11:05 pm

          Except for the bullshit pictures of roads from somewhere other than Fullerton.

          Barry is a lying hack.

    Mr. Imbriano, I would like you to know that your work along with that of Mr. Levinson has really opened my eyes to the deception. If it were not for you and this article being the subject of ridicule on another site, I would never have stumbled across it learning about Mr. Whitaker and Mr. Sebourn.

    Actually the roads around my home in Fullerton look worse than the illustration above.

  8. #13 by Fullerton's Conscience on January 17, 2017 - 7:33 am

    As usual the Whitaker supporters have no answers for their failed and fraudulent council member.

    Barry tells the truth painful as it is to the cowards and frauds that run Fullerton

      They are a sad bunch

  9. #15 by Barry Levinson on January 17, 2017 - 12:16 pm

    Curious it is my hope that more and more people just like yourself get the facts and the truth so that one day we can have a city government that we can be proud of.

    That day unfortunately is a long way off!

      Bruce Whitaker, our mayor allowed not one, but two speakers to plug Flory for the water board slot BEFORE the item came up. He also appointed Eric Wehn to the Park and Rec commission instead of David Curlee. The Brea Dam issue just received another hit with the spade and six more feet of fresh earth.

  10. #17 by Barry Levinson on January 18, 2017 - 2:56 am

    You see the picture above of former City Manager Joe Felz who gave the city and its residents virtually no notice of his abrupt retirement.

    Not very professional for someone who was earning over 200K a year and who will be getting close to 200K a year for life in pension and health care benefits from the taxpayers of the City of Fullerton.

    His exit demonstrated a total lack of professionalism and class.

    Mr. Imbriano thank you for your powerful, yet effective argument against the Red Oak development.

  12. #19 by Barry Levinson on January 18, 2017 - 12:48 pm

    It is a darn shame how many are still being totally fooled by the phony acts of Council member Whitaker.

    No Constitutional Small Government Conservative would Vote for Taxation Without Representation SCAG Planner MA ‘AYN JOHNSON (SCAG has a 500 MILLION DOLLAR TAXPAYER BUDGET WITHOUT ANY TAXPAYER REPRESENTATION) to Sit on our Fullerton Planning Commission…BUT COUNCIL MEMBER WHITAKER DID!!

    And No Council member with any Concern for his Fiduciary Responsibilities would Ignore an On-Going 4 to 5 Million Dollar FULLERTON GOLF COURSE PROBLEM…BUT COUNCIL MEMBER WHITAKER DID!!

    And No Council member would ever let an open seat on our Parks and Recreation Committee sit Vacant, a Vacancy he Created for 8 FULL MONTHS ON THE PARK AND RECREATION COMMITTEE….BUT COUNCIL MEMBER WHITAKER DID!!

    THE ABOVE 3 EXAMPLES CLEARLY PROVES (THERE ARE MORE) BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT BRUCE WHITAKER DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE OUR COUNCIL MEMBER. He is the worst kind of phony POLITICIAN.

    This last election he barely finished 2nd in the vote total ahead a first-timer Jesus Silva and I believe more than 3,000 votes behind Fitzgerald who he bested in the vote total four short years ago. He won but the message is finally getting out that Bruce Whitaker is a phony politician and nothing more.

    Is there anything above to remotely support his claim that he is a “STATESMAN” not a politician? ANSWER! ABSOLUTELY NOT!!

    • #20 by Anonymous on January 18, 2017 - 10:11 pm

      He calls himself the taxpayers choice.

      • #21 by Fullerton - The Most Corrupt City in California on January 19, 2017 - 12:43 pm

        Anonymous I call him something much different.

  13. #22 by Fullerton - The Most Corrupt City in California on January 19, 2017 - 12:41 pm

    It is clear that the only person Whitaker cares about is himself.
    The actions above as well as his vote for the worst redistricting map for Fullerton brought forth not by the citizen’s that worked on this issue for many months but by Slide Bar owner Jeremy Popoff in the eleventh hour (who has given Whitaker thousands of dollars in past campaign contributions) is just another example that much of what comes out of his mouth is pure BS thrown out only to fool and appease his supporters.

  14. #23 by Fullerton Resident on January 21, 2017 - 2:16 pm

    I was one of those People in Fullerton who was taken in by Bruce Whitaker. Thanks in large part to this website it is abundantly clear that Whitaker is a complete fraud and phony politician.
    I look forward to the day when he no longer takes up space on our council or anywhere else in an official capacity in government. The vote on that redistricting map was the last straw. I know many who agree with me.

  15. #24 by Fullerton City Council Needs a Complete Makeover on February 3, 2017 - 12:57 pm

    I agree Fullerton Resident that out of a total of 5 city council members, not one puts the interests of the people of Fullerton first on a consistent basis.
    What a darn shame!

  16. #25 by Fullerton - The Most Corrupt City in California on February 5, 2017 - 12:23 pm

    Danny Hughes now brings his personal stench of corruption to the “Happiest Place On Earth”, Disneyland. He is now second in command for security for the entire Disneyland Resort in Southern California. I believe that hire is a colossal mistake by Disneyland. Remember he was the direct supervisor of 3 police officers mainly responsible in the Kelly Thomas brutal death. I wonder how many people with mental illness visit Disneyland Resort?
