FULLERTONIANS MUST FORGET ABOUT WHITAKER VS. FITZGERALD OR SEBOURN VS. CHAFFEE. THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO THINK. FOR IN REALITY IN FULLERTON CITY GOVERNMENT IT IS STRICKLY ABOUT THE INSIDERS VS. THE OUTSIDERS. By Barry Levinson

 

Why is this so?  The simple answer is because our Fullerton City Government is corrupt.

You see the council is playing a game.  In one of the examples above, the game player was Bruce Whitaker bemoaning that he will not vote for a Grant application without the Grant application available to review.  We found out that it not only was not provided for review but that it did not even exist yet.  That however, is not the cause of the problem Fullertonians that is a symptom.  Does Bruce Whitaker ask for or provide a solution for the problem he so noted, so that agenda items will never again be presented without the necessary basic information to make a decision?

 

bruce-1

games people play when they dress up for work

 Surely that is exactly what an honest council member would certainly do.  Bruce Whitaker did not have to come up with a solution because Zonya Townsend, his current appointee to the Library Board of Trustees and myself his former Parks and Recreation Committee member, for almost 6 years gave him the solution on a silver platter at the very next Fullerton Council meeting.

 

 

Normally one would expect an honest council member, who wants to make a positive difference to not only point out the symptom but also offer solutions.  Like I said above, we handed him an easy and very effective solution and what did we get from Whitaker but more silence.  He huffs and he puffs and he lets the problems persist, he actually allows them to continue to flourish.  Yet he thought he got exactly what he wanted from all of this and that was to make political points with the electorate.  That is exactly what he got until I uncovered his less than honorable game.

bruce-and-joe-2

More than a year ago, I mentioned that I believed that if anyone chose 5 people at random from the street or from the telephone directory, those five people would be an improvement, probably a huge improvement over the current people on our Fullerton City Council

download-31-300x141

At the time I was saying that partially in jest.  Now I truly believe that the odds of improving our governance by using such a haphazard and random method would in fact be very great indeed.

Why do I believe this?  Simply because I do not think it is possible to do worse than our current group of selfish, special interest devoted council members.

Why do I continue to point out these incredible inconsistencies with our Council members?  I believe that if enough people knew the truth that we could start to have good government again here in the very corrupt city of Fullerton.

The phony elite politicians and their media supporters mocked the idea that any Republican let alone Donald Trump could defeat Hillary Clinton.  In newspaper and mainstream TV “News” Shows they laughed at the idea of Trump becoming our 45th President.

Well one day real soon our current disingenuous council members will be handed the same stunning defeat, maybe as soon as 2018.

I report, you decide.

THE DEFINITIVE CRITIQUE OF BRUCE WHITAKER’S SIX YEARS ON THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL OR TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY: LET US COUNT THE WAYS HE HAS FAILED US! BY Barry Levinson

FULLERTON CIVIC LEADER AND ACTIVIST BARRY LEVINSON

FULLERTON CIVIC LEADER AND ACTIVIST BARRY LEVINSON

COUNTING THE MANY WAYS THAT COUNCIL MEMBER WHITAKER HAS FAILED THE GOOD PEOPLE OF FULLERTON AS FOLLOWS:

 

  1. Bruce Whitaker voted to place Ma’Ayn Johnson, a S.C.A.G senior planner to our Fullerton Planning Committee. S.C.A.G, the Southern California Association of Governments, has been pushing for high-rise, high-density development and the elimination of the automobile as agents of the United Nations Agenda 21 for decades.   S.C.A.G is the largest unelected, taxpayer funded, governmental agency in the country and so-called limited government, Bruce Whitaker voted for her to be on our Fullerton Planning Commission

 

Question: Why did Bruce Whitaker support a S.C.A.G. employee and Agenda 21 advocate, which goes against everything he has been pontificating to his loyal supporters for years and years?  May I remind Bruce Whitaker that the American colonies went to war with Britain because of Taxation Without Representation?  Yet Bruce Whitaker votes for Ma’Ayn Johnson, when there were 16 other qualified candidates for that very same position.

  1. Bruce Whitaker voted to make Jennifer Fitzgerald our Mayor almost guaranteeing her to be reelected with the help of the title Mayor on the ballot.

Jennifer Fitzgerald’s Coronation of Compromise

 

  1. Bruce Whitaker voted for the absolute worst redistricting map, which I call the high-density, high-rise developers and downtown nightclub owners’ map.   It is the only map presented to the council that basically disenfranchises the good people who live in and around the downtown area of Fullerton.  Rather than being in primarily one district, Popoff’s map divides our downtown residents into five small pieces attached to other neighborhoods throughout Fullerton. This is taxation without adequate representation.  Jeremy Popoff, the owner of the Downtown Fullerton Slidebar and a $1,500 contributor to Bruce Whitaker’s past campaigns, wrote this map.  Is this a coincidence or not?

bruce-and-joe-2

  1.  Bruce Whitaker refused to respond verbally or in writing to my extremely well documented analysis of a 4 to 5 million-dollar finding concerning the Fullerton Golf Course.  I am a trained auditor with an MBA and work experience with Ernst and Young, a worldwide CPA firm as well as 12 years as an Internal auditor at the Corporate Headquarters of Northrop Grumman Corporation.  A total of over 30 years of accounting and auditing experience ignored by the Council member who appointed me to the Parks and Recreation Committee not once but twice.

Yet to my astonishment, a short time after he chose not to deal with my very large, extremely well documenting and supported finding, he asks for the establishment of an Audit Committee for our City.  Of course his motion got no support and it died immediately.  Was this by design?  Was Bruce Whitaker being a hypocrite?  I will let the readers make up their own minds.

I do know this for sure.  Bruce Whitaker has a lot of explaining to do but unfortunately for him he is way more than a day late and a dollar short!

Bruce Whitaker:  Image vs. Reality

11218520_988171224566333_7334557408059315342_n

 

The carefully cultivated image of a man who cares about the people he represents, who believes in transparency in government, who believes in his fiduciary responsibility to the people.

 

We have now come to learn that the image is so, so different than reality.  Anyone objective enough to absorb the facts presented here and elsewhere, now knows that the reality falls far short from the carefully cultivated image.

bruce-1

 

The very unprofessional and very discourteous way he handled the termination of me from the P and R committee and the fact that he ignored a 4 to 5 million-dollar problem brought to his attention by the same appointee, myself among many other things, shows him lacking in the basics, necessary to continue to represent the people of Fullerton.  What happened to his pledge to carry out his fiduciary responsibility to the people of Fullerton?

images

 

We the people of Fullerton want to know why you voted for the most corrupt redistricting map available, Map 8A not once but twice and voted to make Jennifer Fitzgerald Mayor?

hqdefault

Bruce voted to make this woman mayor as he never goes after Nelson’s sacred cow and Pringle lobbyist up on the dais Fitzgerald

There is absolutely no good reason why Council member Whitaker ignored the Fullerton Golf Course issue. But the reason he removed me is simple. I was apparently getting in the way of the city doing its corrupt, phony deals.   I am referring to deals such as the DCCSP, College Town, the Summit House lease extension, and the Revised DCCSP (which would have also removed Polly’s Pies from its current long-time address and basically removed one of the few shopping centers in the eastern part of Fullerton).  The Agenda item to extend an existing Summit House Restaurant lease deal, which already could extend to the year 2041 was another back room deal by our city council.  The Summit House not the city already controlled options with the exact same terms to the year 2041.   In other words the Summit House was in the driver seat until the year 2041 or 26 years from the date of this agenda item.  But the Summit House wanted more and our totally inept or corrupt city council and city manager (you take your pick for it has to be one or the other), wanted to give them two additional 10-year lease extensions with the exact same terms all the way to October 2061.

download-1

This meant that the city intentionally bypassed the Park and Recreation Committee for this important agenda issue.  I was the only speaker to point out how the city manager and the city council wrongly bypassed the Park and Recreation Committee.   Based on my bringing this failure by the city to the attention of all that night, it resulted in it supposedly going back to our committee.  Guess what, a little over a month later I learned that the agenda item was withdrawn by the Summit House Restaurant owner.

hugo

Hugo Curiel -I bet the Summit House item was deferred to prevent disclosure of the cushy lease arrangement Parkinson has with the City.

summit-house

Mr. Parkinson this land is your land this land is my land

Question:  Would any reasonable businessman accept extending a lease with the same current terms for the next 46 years?  Why didn’t Bruce Whitaker inform me as his appointee to the Park and Recreation Committee that this agenda item had been wrongly bypassed by the city?

Free dinners for life for the complicit lackeys, well almost.

Free dinners for life for the complicit lackeys, well almost.

Was Bruce Whitaker part of this plan to bypass the P and R Committee?  If not, why did he not contact me when he received his council member agenda package.   The agenda package clearly stated that the lease extension was recommended by the Park and Recreation Department and not the Park and Recreation Committee, which is the normal procedure.

A few will claim that this is just a personal vendetta against the good council member because he removed me from my volunteer position at the Parks and Recreation Committee.

This is not personal but it is very painful to me and more importantly to many others who believed and trusted Bruce Whitaker to represent us honestly based on his many years of his pontificating fiscally conservative values and limited government solutions.  He let all of us down.  He had such a golden opportunity to make a real difference in our City and instead over the past year he decided to place politics and his own ambition in front of the needs of the people he swore to represent.

bruce-and-jenn

 

He told me about a year ago that he was planning to run for Shawn Nelson’s OC Supervisory seat when it became available, which will be no later than when term limits apply for Nelson in 2018.  It would seem all his poor and unexplainable decisions might have been based on his selfish political ambitions instead of standing up for the good people of Fullerton.  This turning his back on his most loyal supporters can’t and should not be rewarded with his reelection.  He chose his future political career outside of Fullerton over us.  You have let us down big time Council member Bruce Whitaker and hopefully now you will have to pay a political price for your bad, very selfish and self-serving choices.

So here I am bringing up the biggest issues facing Fullerton, The DCCSP that is still alive and well along with SCAG, The SCAG operative on the planning commission, our roads, and The College Town plan. Watch about 5 minutes after I speak and watch all five of these tools including Fitzgerald and Whitaker ignore everything I said. They do it every time. That is par for the course ladies and gentlemen. The only way to save our city is to clean house and that means all of them need to go. After repeated requests for years to agendize and address the real issues, they just ignore it all, plaster their signs all over town, accept the developer and union money and run one trick ponies as side jobs to keep the coast clear for themselves. Look around folks. They have accomplished nothing in the last four years accept more of the same decline of our community.

ONCE AGAIN POLITICS AND THE POLITICIANS (FULLERTON COUNCIL MEMBER BRUCE WHITAKER AND FULLERTON MAYOR JENNIFER FITZGERALD) WON OUT OVER THE NEED FOR TRANSPARENT, HONEST AND GOOD GOVERNMENT. By Barry Levinson

 

Barry Levinson

Barry Levinson

There is a pattern of deceit/gamesmanship going on within our Fullerton City Council.  On September 20th, 2016 it was in full view. There was a disagreement between Whitaker and Fitzgerald about answering a few questions from the public as well as the absence of the grant application as part of the supporting documentation for two agenda items. So the argument went like this.

bruce-and-jenn

If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing. 

Whitaker commented that the public’s questions needed to be addressed prior to the agenda vote.  Whitaker’s comments annoyed Fitzgerald.  (She frequently gets annoyed when she feels, rightly or wrongly that she is being questioned or second-guessed.  After all, anyone who attempts to legislate the removal of polite clapping has some obvious control issues.)  Whitaker says he is for getting the grant money but will not be voting for it because of the absence of the grant application to review.  Flory reads some of the documentation to suggest that the grant application is not needed at this time but will be produced later.  She insists this is normal and the back and forth goes on and on.  It was great theatre but little else since the agenda item passed easily and nothing was resolved for the future.

unnamed (2)

In politics… never retreat, never retract… never admit a mistake. 

However, in the middle of all this back and forth, the public learned a key point of information.  Namely, that if the council did not approve these two grant applications that night, the city would lose the opportunity for these grant monies for at least a year or maybe even forever.  Once this was learned the solution to all the issues being raised by Bruce Whitaker were solvable in the future.  If I were Bruce Whitaker or any of the other 4 council members, I would have made a motion that all future agenda items that have a date certain necessary for its approval, must come before the council at least 3 to 4 weeks prior to the deadline.   This would allow staff to provide any and all documentation necessary to answer all questions at the next council meeting prior to the deadline if necessary. Whitaker did not consider this simple and very straightforward solution.

bruce-and-joe

Fullerton’s dream team

Why not?  He is a very bright man.  Every council member had the opportunity to actually accomplish a permanent change in process that would have benefited the public’s right to know and ensure that all council members had all the information necessary to make an informed decision prior to their votes.  Yet when push came to shove, not one of our council members had the integrity or the courage to make a motion to do the right thing, the honest thing and the transparent thing.   Bruce Whitaker was once again all talk and no action.    He huffs and he puffs but instead of blowing the political corruption house down, he allows it to continue, to actually flourish in full force after throwing some political phony crumbs to his supporters.

bruce-1

Nice gig huh?

 

The result of this back and forth accomplished absolutely nothing.  The same problems as discussed will be repeated again and again in the future for all ignored the real solution.  However, Fullertonians it was good political theatre.  For I am certain Whitaker will now claim he was looking out for the people of Fullerton.   But my question is simply…. was he really?

bruce-and-jenn

Just you and I, just you and I …..

He had a golden opportunity to make a difference and all he did was object to the process while ignoring the solution staring him and all the others in the face.  He could have accomplished much more than the political points he made in an election season.  Once more, it proves that all on that dais including Bruce Whitaker are self-centered politicians, only looking out for Number 1 and that is certainly not you and I.

 

Gamesmanship is alive and thriving in the Fullerton City Council.

Phony politicians make the strangest of bedfellows

Rocye’s endorsing Larry Bennett in Fullerton is totally unforgiveable and beyond inexcusable considering Mr. Bennett’s involvement in running the anti-recall program protecting the three bald tires that turned Fullerton into a pot hole pit awash in liquor and cheeseburgers.

Royce’s endorsing Jennifer Fitzgerald in Fullerton smacks of Cronyism on steroids given the fact that she became The VP of Curt Pringle and Associates right after Royce, Nelson and Bushala walked her right into office poised to turn Fullerton into a gestapo run gridlocked version of Manhattan blended with the Bronx.

Looks like Royce or Nelson played Bruce by making him fire Barry Levinson and give Fitzgerald the mayor title for the ballot and then by personally recruiting and endorsing Sue Gapinski who is endorsed by Royce. Royce is the same person who endorsed Fitzpringle and Larry Bennett. How do you do that?

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!

cropped-smoke_filled_room_small.jpg

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.

DSC00429-300x225

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.

images

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.
