MORE PROOF THAT THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER HAS BECOME TOTALLY INCONSEQUENTIAL AS A SOURCE OF LOCAL NEWS.


THAT PROOF IS THE ENDORSEMENTS OF BRUCE WHITAKER, JENNIFER FITZGERALD AND SUE GAPINSKI FOR FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL.  By Barry Levinson

Yesterday, the Orange County Register endorsed Bruce Whitaker for Fullerton City Council.

Here in part are the comments about Bruce Whitaker from the editorial: “While there are several good options among the 12 candidates seeking three City Council seats in Fullerton, Councilman Bruce Whitaker is undoubtedly our favorite choice due to his steadfast defense of free markets and property rights and his important role as fiscal watchdog for the city.”

After getting up from falling off my chair, I read the last part of the OC Register’s quote about Bruce Whitaker again as follows: …”and his important role as fiscal watchdog for the city.”

I guess the OC Register editorial board has been asleep at the wheel for the last year. Their crack investigative team must be ignorant of many of Whitaker’s recent votes. Because just like Council member Whitaker, the OC Register is ignoring a 4 to 5 million dollar finding related to our Fullerton City Golf Course, they are ignoring his vote to appoint an Agenda 21 supporting S.C.A.G. employee to our Planning Committee (S.C.A.G. is the largest unelected, taxpayer funded, bureaucratic governmental agency in the entire country), and lastly they are ignoring Whitaker’s keeping silent on a agenda item brought by the city to our city council to extend a lease with the Summit House Restaurant on Fullerton parkland with the exact same terms through October 2061. Wow and after all this the OC Register states that Bruce Whitaker is fulfilling his “important role as fiscal watchdog for the city”. But I guess the Register is counting on Bruce Whitaker to allow the developers to have pretty much free rein from our Fullerton City Council, lead by Bruce Whitaker, Jennifer Fitzgerald and Sue Gapinski.

The same OC Register endorsed Whitaker’s newly anointed protégé, Sue Gapinski, who in answering an important interview question concerning Fullerton said to Fullerton Observer’s Jesse La Tour that she has no idea how to solve the problem but will listen to the people of Fullerton.

I feel so much better that a candidate that came out of nowhere, has no real platform and states she has no idea how to solve a Fullerton problem, and gets the nod of the OC Register.

Jennifer Fitzgerald became Vice President of Curt Pringle & Associates only after her election to the council

Finally endorsing big government and FPOA (Fullerton Police Officers Association) union backed Mayor Jennifer Fitzgerald is indeed the biggest joke of all. She too, ignored my 4 to 5 million dollar finding. She too voted to appoint the SCAG senior planner to the planning commission as well. In my opinion she has a built in conflict of interest, as she is Vice President of Curt Pringle and Associates, a lobbyist and public relations firm that has many, many developer clients and deals directly with local cities all the time.  She makes her employment situation that much worse by refusing to provide the good people of Fullerton a complete list of all Curt Pringle and Associates’ clients.

The only thing I can say is that the OC Register should have stayed in bankruptcy and closed its doors forever. They in large part have voluntarily given up any claim to accurately report the local news here in Fullerton and elsewhere throughout Orange County. These endorsements are more proof of the irrelevance of the current OC Register paper.

    I noted a new sign for Bruce Whitaker yesterday. It said Bruce Whitaker for Fullerton City Council…”the taxpayer’s choice”.

    I agree with Mr. Whitaker, he is the taxpayer’s choice…to vote out of office for failing to protect the taxpayers’ monies.

      Barry stop being so butt hurt. It was time for you to go. You tried your hardest but you ran that detail like joe would try to run city council if he ever won. It got old and Bruce had to kick you out. If the people want someone like you, run for council. The people will speak. They are going to speak soon about Joe.

    The Orange County Register is simply Orange County Chamber of Commerce newsletter that shills for the establishment.

      FL do you ever realize that you are in the minority in your thoughts? LOL

        Why would I want to be in the majority?

        Have you seen what that has gotten Fullerton thus far?

        #1 rated city in Orange County to have a one-night stand!

        625 million in unfunded pension obligations.

        Potholes on EVERY street.

        City councilman using every trick in the book to get rid of those pesky Proposition 13 properties and redevelop the city with high density high rises in their place.

        I could go on all day…

          Get used to it. It’s never changed and never will. Fullerton is run right and will continue to be run correctly.

        …you may want to reflect on why you didn’t listen to the good folks like myself at Friend’s For Fullerton’s Future, when we tried to tell you to leave the TASERS at home to use on your own families and not ours…

        …I’m sure that Kelly Thomas’ family wished you would have listened to folks like myself too.

          Best thing ever invented. Fullerton bought more since then and even more powerful ones too. We do everything the opposite of what you and Bushala say.

          Love,

          DannyBoy

          PS. Clearly even after Kelly we carry them more often.

    Danny Boy, Danny Hughes is retiring in 10 days and will be working as well as residing outside of Fullerton.

    Therefore, I speak for well over 99% of the readership in the hope that you too will retire from this website. Thanks for all your contributions….excuse me, I forgot you have contributed less than nothing to this site. Adieu!

      If I do that, who will do any posts? Go thru the last 1000 posts. Let me know how it will look without me.

      Love,

      DannyBoy

      PS. Come see Mickey with me. I’ll let you fondle his ears.

    I hear the Register is slated to become the largest homeless shelter in the United States.

    I just love how the Register is more ads than news now. It is going down. Nobody reads it anymore. It is going the way of the polyester suit and the typewriter.
