Reading The Below Comments By Sean Paden And Fullerton Council Member Bruce Whitaker Provides Insight As To Their True Identities. By Barry Levinson


Barry Levinson

Barry Levinson

 

Well I decided to provide some facts for Sean Paden on the Stop SCAG Facebook Page, where he posts frequently.  After some back and forth between us, those comments were miraculously removed from that Facebook page.  I decided to repost them on that Facebook page and here below as follows:

Barry Levinson 

“Bruce Whitaker ignored my 4 to 5 million well documented proof that over a 20-year period starting in 2010 the city with the approval of the city council started wasting this much in net revenue because of the contract and bond issue both dealing with the Fullerton Golf Course. Yet you still support him when instead he chooses to be outraged over one or two 400-dollar city hotel bills. As I write this the loss of net revenue continues and Bruce Whitaker along with all the other council members have done their best to bury my findings.

You know I am a trained auditor by profession. Bruce Whitaker is either a coward or fraud or both. I have absolutely no respect for him. I tried for well over a year to get Bruce to do the right thing privately but he continued to refuse and make the lamest of excuses why people like myself had to bear the brunt of sticking our necks out against the establishment while our so-called leader hid in the shadows.  I am so, so tired of getting messages from Linda Whitaker accusing me of stealing David Curlee’s work. I have always readily admitted that I used much of David’s research, (i.e. posting the original city documents) to arrive at my analysis but this issue was totally missed and/or ignored by the both of you.

I was the only one with both the courage and the skill to report on it and every single council member including the person who appointed me, Bruce Whitaker ignored what I handed to them in great detail. A complete failure to live up to their fiduciary responsibilities. What a huge scandal?‬‬‬”

Sean Paden 

“Barry he didn’t ignore you. He had at least one very lengthy meeting with Mr Curlee about the issue. If you have more requests send them to me and I’ll forward It to him.‬‬‬”
‬‬‬
Barry Levinson

“Sean you are such a total phony. Council member Bruce Whitaker had a meeting with David Curlee but not with the person, namely me, his appointee to the Parks and Recreation Committee, who did the total analysis. Bruce Whitaker did not mention the results of that analysis at any city council meetings. He did not return my calls nor my emails? Bruce Whitaker never had the decency to contact me to discuss these very serious findings of either incompetence, malfeasance or much worse. I cannot believe you think that fellow Fullertonians are that gullible to accept such a lame response.”

 

bruce

I guess Sean Paden decided that the facts did not make our 6 year council member look particularly good. Now why again did Bruce Whitaker ignore an ongoing 4 to 5 million dollar issue from his own appointee?

Is it because he represents the people of Fullerton so very well? No.  Is it because he takes his fiduciary responsibility to the taxpayers of Fullerton so very seriously?  No.

Could it be that Bruce Whitaker is a fraud or maybe a coward or both?  Yes, for it is hard to look at all the evidence and come to any other conclusion. Please say no to four more years of Bruce Whitaker’s pontificating on our Council stage when he knows the cause is lost and the only purpose for his comments is for show for his supporters.  That Fullertonians is why after 6 years as our Council member, the only thing Bruce Whitaker has delivered is a phony 8A redistricting map, coronating Fitzgerald as our Mayor and the game changer FIREWORKS!  Do you really think that the people of Fullerton will miss him when he is not re-elected? NO!

I forgot, Whitaker also voted for Ma’Ayn Johnson, a S.C.A.G planning employee to sit on our Planning Committee. Yet on the Facebook page, “Stop S.C.A.G.” Sean conveniently fails to disclose that fact about Council member Bruce Whitaker.  He had 16 other candidates for the position and he picks a S.C.A.G. planner. How does Bruce Whitaker explain this? He can’t explain it. How does Sean Paden have the disingenuousness to fully support the Stop SCAG Facebook page but fail to condemn this appointment voted for by Council member Bruce Whitaker? Why are you Sean hiding such an important fact from the Facebook page visitors?

sean-300x172

Sean, I guess, does not like to deal with certain critical facts. I guess supporting his guy, Bruce Whitaker right or wrong is more important then making it known who on our city council is for S.C.A.G. Those for S.C.A.G. would be our entire council who unaninously appointed a S.C.A.G. planning employee to our Planning Commission.  Another fact, is that it was no one other than Mayor Fitzgerald who put forth the name of Ma’Ayn Johnson for Planning Commissioner.  Why is Sean Paden supporting Council Member Bruce Whitaker who helped put her on our Planning Committee?  Why is Sean Paden giving Bruce Whitaker a complete pass on this issue?  When will Bruce Whitaker explain to the Fullerton public his support for S.C.A.G. and therefore for Agenda 21?  We need people loyal to both their convictions and the people who elected them based on those expressed convictions.  Bruce Whitaker by voting for Ma’Ayn Johnson clearly violated those convictions and at the same time turned his back on the vast majority of his constituents.

Yes Sean and other Bruce Whitaker surrogates will trash me all over the social media and beyond for my above comments. But for what….for stating the facts and telling the truth. I am pointing out the very apparent hypocrisy of Bruce Whitaker and his surrogates, in this case Sean Paden.

bruce-and-joe

Please now read what Bruce Whitaker told the Fullerton Observer for its July 2016 issue, which was published approximately 5 weeks after Whitaker removed me from my post without any advance warning that he had any problem with my service to the community and without any reason for my dismissal.

In removing me, he did not even thank me for 5 and one half years of honest and hard working service as his appointee to the Park and Recreation Committee.  Is this the way a statesman handles the removal of an appointee?  Well here is what he said in the Fullerton Observer to this question.

“The Observer asked Councilmember Whitaker for his reason for removing his appointed commissioner.  He, (meaning Bruce Whitaker) sent the following response.”   “”Faced with an imminent employee action which would have likely generated substantial cost to the City, to avoid that action, I opted to remove the commission member.””

What employee is he referring to and what action might that employee take that would cost the city substantial money?  Why is he making these statements to the Fullerton Observer, while not saying anything to me.  Bruce Whitaker’s statement to the Fullerton Observer is not the action of a honorable human being let alone a statesman, to purposely attempt to ruin the reputation of an honest activist citizen, like myself.

bruce-768x291

He gave not one detail to support his false claims against me.  It is a complete false innuendo, which by the way on its face MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE AT ALL!  IF I HAD DONE ANYTHING THAT COULD WARRANT AN ACTION AGAINST THE CITY, THE FACT THAT I WAS REMOVED LATER FROM THE PARK AND RECREATION COMMITTEE WOULD HAVE NO BEARING ON ANY ACTION THAT COULD BE TAKEN AGAINST THE CITY.

In other words in my humble opinion, this was just pure character assassination by our so-called esteemed Council member Bruce Whitaker.  To this day, the only feedback from Bruce Whitaker was only praise about my work on the Park and Recreation Committee as well as my many public comments at Fullerton City Council meetings.  His call to inform me he was removing me only included the remark that he had been considering removing me for the last 3 or 4 months.   Funny how that statement by him is not in sync with his comments to the Fullerton Observer above.  I believe the truth is that as far as Mr. Whitaker was concerned, I served the community much too well. So not only does he remove me without giving me any explanation, he then is compelled to strongly insinuate that I did something wrong.

bruce-and-jenn

If you have anything of substance Council member Whitaker, you put all your cards on the table. You gave absolutely no facts while trashing my reputation, which members of this city government now have done multiple times. Bruce Whitaker not only crossed a political line, but he crossed a line of simple human decency.  Simply stated, these are not the actions of a man of integrity and honesty.  For that alone, he does not deserve another four years as our council member. This is the same man who has called for transparency in city government.  Bruce Whitaker, a real leader leads by example.  All the above, clearly demonstrates that you are something much less.

Here are some quotes about the subject of telling the truth as follows:

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
Thomas Jefferson

The truth is incontrovertible.  Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
Winston Churchill

In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

George Orwell

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
Buddha

Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.
Elvis Presley

I report, you decide.

    It is approaching four months since Council member Whitaker removed me from my P and R Committee post. Yet he still has not contacted me to give me any reason, let alone the real reason why he canned me. He still has not explained the rumor mill he started in of all places, the Fullerton Observer about the false, vague reason why he had to remove me from P and R Committee.

    Bruce Whitaker Statesman: NO!

    Bruce Whitaker Transparent: NO!

    Bruce Whitaker Takes His Fiduciary Responsibility Seriously: NO!
    If he did he would have sat down with me to discuss my 4 to 5 million dollar findings.
    If he did he would have spoken out on the Consent Item that was put on the Council agenda to add 2 decades to the Summit House Restaurant lease on City of Fullerton parkland through the year 2060. What honest government gives a lease extension out through the next 45 years with the same current terms without any discussion about it.
    I was at the City Council meeting and when I saw this item I pulled it for discussion myself. When I let the cat out of the bag it was rightfully sent for the first time to the Park and Recreation Committee for approval. I later learned that the owner of the Summit House pulled his request for the lease extension indefinitely.

    Did Bruce Whitaker contact his appointee, me, when he saw this item on the Consent Calendar for approval? NO! Was he concerned? By his lack of any action to stop this the answer is apparently not at all.

    We need honest straight forward leadership in Fullerton, desperately. These phony and corrupt political games must end now. Please vote to remove Bruce Whitaker and the person he voted to be our current Mayor, Mayor Jennifer Fitzgerald. Also note that Larry Bennett was appointed by Mayor Fitzgerald to the Planning Commission and he to voted for the DCCSP. They are all not worthy to serve on our Fullerton City Council.

    We have had enough of two faced politicians telling the public one thing and then doing something quite different when for political expediency it

    No one cares what you think, especially since you’ve been canned.

    I report, you decide.

    • #3 by Bitter Betty on September 14, 2016 - 11:46 am

      Barry Levinson is the most bitter man in all Fullerton.

      Why won’t anyone important listen to me?

      Why won’t anyone listen to everyone not listening to me?

      Why won’t people vote for me?

      Why does the police chief hate me?

      Why? Why? Whyyyyyyyyyy?

      Have some self respect man. You got fired. Raging on the internet courtesy of Joe Imbriano is your best response? How embarrassing is that?

        No Lou Ponsi is because he lost his minimum wage job at the Register and can’t cover the bikini contests anymore.

      • #5 by Anonymous on September 16, 2016 - 1:11 am

        I heard someone said they thought they saw Lou Ponsi working at the car wash.

      If you don’t care what Barry Levinson thinks, than why are you reading this blog, and all of Barry’s thoughts and information that he posts?

      As Barry posted the other day, that the path to wisdom is being honest.

      • #7 by Anonymous on September 14, 2016 - 2:39 pm

        Oh, I’m honest about why I’m here. I want to see all the crying and spin when Joe gets trounced in November. I want to see the gymnastics he and Barry go through as they contort their insanity into dealing with actual rejection. I’ve got my popcorn ready for the show, and my lawn chair pulled up.

      • #8 by The Omen on September 14, 2016 - 7:11 pm

        Sociopathic degenerates don’t care about the truth. Look what they did to Kelly Thomas. You think for one minute that you can reason with these trolls? They are here for one reason and one reason only. They are here to hide the shitload of money that’s missing from Fullerton. You need to stop playing online backgammon with a bunch of syphillitic cop licking trolls. Enough with covering the Jerry Springer show contestants in this rigged race. Stick to the numbers Barry. You will indeed find the devil’s in the details.

  3. #9 by Barry Levinson on September 14, 2016 - 1:50 pm

    To respond to Bitter Betty or Bitter Lou or Bitter Linda or Bitter Jennifer or whoever you are, with the following words of wisdom from two brilliant minds of the past.

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
    EDMUND BURKE

    “The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”
    ALBERT EINSTEIN

    I take the words above very seriously. The only thing Betty is probably bitter about is that the corrupt, phony charade known as Fullerton City Hall has been exposed by people such as myself.

    Yes hearing the truth Betty can be a bitter bill to swallow but don’t blame the messenger. You should be blaming those that choose to lie and deceive the good people of Fullerton, especially those that are supposed to be representing us.

    • #10 by Bitter Betty on September 14, 2016 - 3:09 pm

      Please. You and Joe lie all the time. You just took a gratuitous swipe at Lou Ponzi, Linda Whitaker, and Jennifer Fitzgerald for absolutely no reason. You’re bitter. You rage.

      I hope for your sake and your marriage’s sake, you cut the chain on the anchor that is Imbriano very soon.

      But, if not, watching your ship sink while you whine about no one helping you will be fun!

    • #11 by Marsha on September 14, 2016 - 5:30 pm

      Mr. Levinson, do not let the nayesayers discourage you. Their denial of the facts constitutes their guilt and complicity in the demise of our community.

      • #12 by Mat Caraffa on September 14, 2016 - 7:29 pm

        Denial of facts… that’s rich.

  4. #13 by Anonymous on September 14, 2016 - 6:50 pm

    Honestly noy being a naysayer, but cheeeeez!!! Barry, really don’t know you but you sure come across as a very unhappy bitter angry man. Life is too short brother. Go out and play a round of golf. Go on a hike. Go to the beach. Go to a ballgame. Do something fun and relaxing. Anything.

    • #14 by Barry Levinson on September 14, 2016 - 9:17 pm

      Actually thank you Anonymous for your concern about my well-being. I have my share of fun with family and friends.

      What I do here is not fun but it is very important for Fullertonians to know what is actually going on behind their backs. I provide that service to them, free of charge.

      I tell you what is not fun Anonymous, the city not taking their fiduciary responsibilities seriously. The ongoing waste of tax dollars by our city. The crony capitalist deals that continue to be made by our city elites.

      You know what else is not fun, riding on the worst roads probably in all of California. It ruins alignments in our cars and hurts our back health. Why buy a new car when there is no such thing as a smooth car ride within the borders of Fullerton.

      You know what else is not fun the attempt to frame me by various people within the Fullerton City government.

      My main goal is to leave my little part of the world a slightly better place for my son and his future family and all the future families living here in Fullerton. What is your goal Anonymous? What do you do personally to make this a better place?

  5. #15 by Barry Levinson on September 14, 2016 - 7:33 pm

    Thank you very much Marsha. Bitter Betty says I lie all the time, yet I am still waited for Bitter Betty or any of the other establishment bullies/phonies to give me just one example out of all the posts I have put out over the last 5 or 6 years that are not factually correct.

    I am still waiting. It is easy to claim someone is a liar. The reason I am hated so much by those that lie, misinform or misdirect, is simply because I proof it with the facts.

    • #16 by Bitter Betty on September 14, 2016 - 11:15 pm

      Let’s make this interesting.

      Why do you post on this site using fake names?

      Let’s see how much truth Bitter Barry will tell.

      • #17 by Anonymous on September 15, 2016 - 11:39 am

        Fake names, huh? Why don’t YOU use your real name, Mr. Bitter Betty, I mean Ms. Bitter Betty.

  6. #18 by Barry Levinson on September 14, 2016 - 9:21 pm

    When those in power try to shut you down for the terrible crime in their eyes of telling the truth, the response is not to run away but to stand and fight back. For the truth is something always worth fighting for.

    I know to so many elected and appointed officials here in this town that must be a very foreign concept to you. But that is even more reason that people like me as so very needed here.

    • #19 by Matt Caraffa on September 15, 2016 - 8:02 am

      Calling people names, being a crappy auditor and intimidating utility representatives because you believe in bullshit conspiracy theories is not the same as simply “telling the truth.” People dislike you for real reasons.

    I find it hilarious to this day that you loved Brucey so much until you got fired. No you hate him. LOL

        How do you know I’m here everyday 24//7?

        There isn’t nearly enough content and posts to be here 24/7. If there was, I might be.

        I’m here for the entertainment. This place has been dead quiet this year. Wonder why.
