SCOTT STANFORD SPEAKS TO THE FULLERTON INFORMER


The Brea Dam issue may be new to some of you, but not to the Parks and Recreation commission in Fullerton, and especially not to Scott Stanford.

scott

Is there a massive financial scandal brewing involving the property? Here is another SO CALLED CONSERVATIVE Scott Stanford parks and rec appointee from Foolerton’s decaying establishment who is just outright mad at Mr Imbriano, Mr Curleee, and anyone else who shines the light of day on issues. He personally asked me to post this so watch him in action. Just another city hall establishment sycophant who claims to be conservative. 

Contrary to Mr Stanford, there is nothing PETTY about ramming dangerous cell towers into neighborhoods right next to peoples homes and right next to schools, framing and attempting to incarcerate citizen activists and a fellow commissioner, the disgusting, dilapidated, grafiitti riddled neglected unsanitary disgusting park bathrooms, busted drinking fountains, busted concrete, gopher hole laden dead parks, dead trees, treacherous decaying playground equipment, the dirty, attempted secret giveaway of the most valueable piece of real estate in the park and rec department, and of course the serious allegations of misuse of public funds at the Brea dam.

Of course Stanford states that he “has nothing vested in his position except for seeing the city run in a good way” Well this is not political, this is not a game, this is push back from awake citizens that want to see the city run in good way. We are not going away so maybe, like he has been tempted to do in the past, he should resign. If he doesn’t like the way this issue is being covered, and the fact that questions are being asked about our money, our parks and our representatives then get the heck off the commission so we can have someone else step up and join the lone voice of reason and logic, Mr Levinson.

So who is this guy? Well he votes for cell towers next to schools and homes without contracts and detailed information ignoring safety and health concerns just like the others with the exception of Barry Levinson.

Who the heck appointed this guy? Well of course he was an at large appointee so the entire council can take credit. Stanford was involved, by his own admission in the golf course giveaway back when the ball started rolling down the proverbial hill that David Curlee’s website http://breadam.org/ just put on the map.

Yes  it is full of questions and the only answer this guy seems to have is crickets and innuendo.  Par for the course when the lights are on and nobody’s home at city hall. Is Stanford just another RINO? Perhaps but that doesn’t matter because he is just an adviser to council. Fortunately for the taxpayers, because of a possible Brown Act violation and the voice of reason and due diligence, commissioner Levinson, the issue will be back at the table at the next meeting with a more detailed accounting in hopes of answering the serious allegations Mr. Curlee has made against the city of Fullerton. We will keep you posted.

    More intelligent, objective and brave journalism. Just what Fullerton needs. You have a very good chance at getting elected because all of these people are a joke.

    This guy needs to grow up. What now, we are not supposed to question anything? What a child. This guy so typifies the breed that runs in the circles with their suit and ties in town. Way to call him out Joe. I’ve been to Curlee’s site. The Brea dam thing is a big deal.

      “The City of Fullerton has breached several parts of the Brea Dam Lease, including misappropriation (theft) of revenues that otherwise should be returned to the Federal government.”

      from Breadam.org

      This is a serious matter. Forget Mr. Stanford for a moment. Mr. Imbriano, what was stated by the other members on the commission? Do you have video of the entire meeting?

      • #4 by Barry Levinson on January 15, 2016 - 2:29 pm

        Mr. Imbriano videotaped the entire meeting.

    Sometimes it seems unreal, what I have to defend on the Parks and Recreation Committee. It is a permanent formal committee and as such the city is required to post an agenda at least 72 hours prior to the meeting. If a meeting is not to be held, i.e. cancelled it should only be based on the decision to cancel the meeting by a majority of the committee members. It should never be based solely on the recommendation of The Park and Recreation Director, Hugo Curiel and only one member out of a seven member committee. Earlier in the meeting I did state that when I was Chair, I always emailed all the members and asked them if they would agree to a cancellation of the meeting. I also stated it was my recollection that during my almost 5 years serving on the committee that until last fall, the Chair person and/or the Director of Parks and Recreation asked the committee members for their agreement to cancel a regularly scheduled formal meeting before taking that action. A committee’s actions is always based on the will of the majority. It is that simple. To ignore that concept disrespects the committee and its membership and seriously diminishes its independence. The fact that Commissioner Stanford, a self-proclaimed conservative seems to have a problem with that is mind boggling to me.

    I would like to thank Commissioner Levinson for representing the taxpayers of this city. It seems that city representatives speaking on behalf of the taxpayers is rare these days. I would also like to thank Mr. Imbriano for posting the above You Tube video and giving the Fullerton public a glimpse of what transpires at committee meetings. It was troubling that Commissioner Stanford took offense that some citizens were asking probing questions. His video comments seems to suggest that he is considering resigning because he is no longer enjoying himself. I would advise Commissioner Stanford that maybe he should resign and join some social club of his choice.
    It seems to me that a good public servant should welcome citizen’s participation and not criticize it. I usually become suspicious when a government official gets upset/unnerved over detailed questions by its citizens. It certainly is helpful when government has to operate in the bright light of day.
    Why Mr Levinson is the Park and Recreation Committee meetings not broadcast on TV and made available on video tape after the fact? It seems if they can do it for the council and planning meeting they can and should do it for all regular committee meetings as well.

    I agree that all committee meeting should be on TV and video taped for a permanent record of all the meetings. I have suggested it in the past but I will definitely request it again at our next meeting in February.

    Mr. Stanford certainly became unglued and defensive. Instead of doing the right thing, as appointed to do, and start tackling issues he starts attacking everyone else.

    It’s about the problems, Mr. Stanford, and not you.

    Since you vote for cell towers near people’s homes, where children play, you have no business voting on these issues.

  7. #9 by Fullerton Resident on January 12, 2016 - 6:08 pm

    Mr. Stanford referred to the Brea Dam allegations as “one little thing wrong”. There are dozens of allegations and some are quite big Mr. Stanford. As a citizen but especially as a committee member to the Parks and Recreation Department, you should care if the city is being run properly and should take allegations very seriously. Instead he states that he does not want to take the abuse from citizens and he is highly offended by it. Public servant Mr. Stanford, look up the definition. You are on the committee to serve the city and the public and yes to answer relevant questions. If that is highly offensive you need to resign sir because all those years on that committee has taught you absolutely nothing.

    In the words of Shakespeare…

    “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” is a quotation from the 1599/ 1600 play Hamlet by William Shakespeare. It has been used as a figure of speech, in various phrasings, to indicate that a person’s overly frequent or vehement attempts to convince others of something have ironically helped to convince others that the opposite is true, by making the person look insincere and defensive.

    I thought that Commissioner Scott Stanford allowed his TRUE feelings to be shown at 1:45 into the tape when he stated that “we have a handful of new…” and then he didn’t finish his thought because he realized how stupid and telling his statement would have been.

    What he REALLY wanted to say, in effect, was that “we have a handful of newcomers” who ask too many questions, and since I’ve been used to my old cronies on the Chamber of Commerce and Teacher’s unions, looking the other way and looking out for THEIR interests instead of ours…

    p.s. I KNEW his name sounded familiar…

    …the same Scott Stanford that chairs the Parks and Recreation committee?
    Although there are a dis-proportionate amount of parks in the north part of Fullerton, the scant few parks that they do have in south Fullerton, are padlocked shut?
    So as far as current job performance I’d have to give him an F.

  10. #12 by Joe Imbriano on January 13, 2016 - 6:36 am

    Can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. So he is accusing people of “attacking park and rec workers”? What is he doing, working with Dan Hughes to trump up some phony assault charges on some more citizen activists and a fellow commissioner?

      Please elaborate.

    Commissioner Stanford is upset because instead of just having to deal with Mr. Levinson on the dais, he now has to deal with others such as Mr. Imbriano. He is highly offended because he is being asked to be accountable for his votes and his actions on that committee.
    Bulletin to Commissioner Stanford: It is called doing your job. If you are highly offended when you are asked to account for your job performance and the performance of the Park and Recreation Department, then you obviously do not belong on that dais. You see sir ensuring that the Park and Recreation Department does a good job, which includes being a good financial steward of its funds is supposed to be your role as a member of that committee. It is outrageous that not only do you not get it, but when confronted with your task at hand you become “highly offended”. Well sir, now that you have clearly exposed your warped attitude to the Fullerton public, we ask that you resign.

    According to Mr. Stanford, he is highly offended for what he calls Monday morning quarterbacking of those asking for information about extremely serious allegations made against the Park and Recreation Department actions back in 2010. If the allegations surrounding the the handling of the Fullerton Golf Course are true it would have both serious financial as well as potentially legal consequences.
    Applying Mr. Stanford’s logic, when anyone is charged criminally after allegedly committing an offense based on the evidence, he would find that also highly offensive, because our whole judicial system can be called Monday morning quarterbacking.
    What is clear is that without all the facts, he is willing to state that he doubts that anything as he calls nefarious happened. Gee, I thought you gather up all the evidence first and then study it to then make a determination but I guess Mr. Stanford is too busy being highly offended to take those very necessary steps.
    I also believe that he needs to resign. His comments above are outrageous on its face and proves that he does not have the proper mindset to carry out his fiduciary responsibilities as committee member.

    Mr. Stanford states that he finds that a citizen taping the meetings (that the city should have already been doing because all the equipment is already set up and paid for by the citizens) is very petty and very insulting. I find it refreshing that a few brave people can stand up to the power and arrogance of many in city government and not be bullied into walking away before they receive the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. No amount of stonewalling or character assassination of the messengers trying to uncover the facts, should deter the public from learning how well or how poorly or worse our tax dollars are spent on our behalf.

    Blessed is our town when our men and our women have the courage and the conviction to stand and speak the truth.

    It is a shame that not one council member has the courage to speak out on the continuing Brea Dam allegations.

    It is a shame that not one of our council members has asked to discuss the Gennaco leaked report, stating that many FPD policies and procedures were in fact not followed the night of brutal beating death of Kelly Thomas at the hands of 6 FPD officers. That the judge asked the jury not to consider the testimony that no polices were broken by Rubio and Craig. That it appears that they both perjured themselves under oath. Since the report was leaked to the public, it would seem that POBAR should not be an issue.

    It will be a shame if as requested by Ron Thomas, no one on the dais requests that all the depositions taken in his civil lawsuit are put on the city website for all to view.

    It is a shame that even though we can use a few more police officers, the council votes for 5 more positions before it knows how they are going to pay for it from an already 2.8 million dollar 2 year deficit budget.

    It is a shame that the terrific city of Fullerton is run so poorly and for so, so long.

    It is a shame how unresponsive our current police chief is to simple requests for information such as who replaced Reserve Officer Willis who retired in March 2014 and was the head of all sex offender monitoring for the city.

    It is a shame that the council majority and the police chief are vehemently against having an independent civilian police review board.

    It is a shame that Mayor Fitzgerald is about as truthful as Hillary Clinton.

    While it looks like his prediction came true, still shame on Scott Stanford.
