The Evidence Is Piling Up To Conclude That The Fullerton City Government Is Not Capable And/Or Not Willing To Honestly Carry Out Their Fiduciary Duty To Represent The People of Fullerton. The Following People Must Be Held Accountable: Mayor Bruce Whitaker, Council members Jennifer Fitzgerald, Greg Sebourn, Doug Chaffee and Jesus Silva as well as City Attorney Dick Jones, Former Police Chief Dan Hughes and Former City Manager Joe Felz. By Barry Levinson

 

Barry Levinson

There are at least a half dozen major scandals in full view now playing out in Fullerton City Government.  Yet our esteemed five-member city council (Mayor Bruce Whitaker and Jennifer Fitzgerald, Greg Sebourn, Doug Chaffee, and Jesus Silva) have all remained silent on each and every one of them.   What a City Council?

Silva

Sebourn

Chaffee

Whitaker

Fitzpringle

Why are the City Attorney, Dick Jones,Interim Police Chief David Hinig* and our Interim City Manager Allan Roeder also being totally silent as well?  Here is a partial list of the scandals going on right now as follows:

 

  1. City Attorney provided blatantly false information about a Fullerton city ordinance 3149, (the Fullerton Child Sex Offender Residency Restriction Act) and then used that to support and argue for its repeal.  I disclosed to the city council and to the city attorney their “error” and what does the city attorney and all five council members do, they ignore the facts and me and vote to repeal a very good and sound law.   It seems to me that California attorneys’ have been sanctioned or even disbarred for less.
  1. Then the city via the FPD and the Interim City Manager provides this false information to the Fullerton School District and they in turn send out via recorded phone message and emails to every parent in the district, a false assurance that the kids are still protected as if nothing has changed.  Others and I then put them on direct notice of their “error” and yet they too have not corrected their blatantly false statement to the parents.  Why not Superintendent Robert Pletka?   The Fullerton School District Mission Statement states that safety of our students is a major goal of the FSD.
  1. Dan Hughes after being contacted by Joe Felz at approximately 2 AM gets a ride home by the FPD instead of following normal police procedure to arrest him for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident with damages.  All five council members, new police chief, new city manager, long time City Attorney all have been completely silent on what I believe clearly demonstrates the corruption as well as a criminal conspiracy lead by Dan Hughes.
  1. The next scandal is the City Council voting to approve a Grant Application that was not yet produced by the City.   But that did not stop our former now disgraced City Manager from putting this on the Agenda for approval and then to my astonishment being passed by the City Council.  This is the equivalent of Approving a “blank check”.  This is a total and complete abandonment of the City Council’s and the former City Manager’s collective fiduciary responsibilities.  I came up with a simple and no cost solution going forward and every council member refused to take those steps to make this problem go away permanently.  What a City Council.
  1. Ignoring documented evidence/proof of city council voluntary actions that over 20 years starting in 2010 will waste 4 to 5 million dollars of taxpayer monies relating to the management of the Fullerton Golf Course.  I was Bruce Whitaker’ appointee to the Park and Recreation Committee, yet he and all the other council members refused repeatedly to have any discussion about this very important and very costly issue to the Fullerton taxpayers.  As of today a portion of that money is gone for good but I have made it abundantly clear that current remedial action by the city council could save upwards of 2 million dollars going forward.  Unfortunately they are apparently not interested in discussing taking action to save up to 2 million dollars.  However our current Appointed Mayor Bruce Whitaker has chosen to talk instead about one or two $300/$400 dollar employee hotel bills.  Which do you believe has the greater financial impact on our city?  Question: Why won’t Bruce Whitaker and the rest of the council discuss this issue?
  1. At the last council meeting we learned that the just completed 1.7 million-dollar Hillcrest Park to Lions Field Stairs has many very serious construction and design issues.   Way too many of the concrete foundations are cracking already and in at least one case has a large portion already broken off.  In addition, the wooden posts are all too often way to close to the edge of the foundations, a structural defect.  Also the poor design had the wood posts sunk into the concrete foundations making it incredibly more expensive to replace and repair any of the wooden posts.   Wood as any laymen knows has a much shorter lifespan than concrete so this makes absolutely no sense from a structural design point of view.  How much did we pay some design company for this fiasco?  We should be asking for our money back and then some for this as well.  This is not a complete list of the design, construction and safety issues.   But one member of the city council, Greg Sebourn indicated after Joshua Ferguson displayed these major problems via pictures that the council should get a refund from the contractor.

So after SEBOURN made that statement, he of course brought forth a motion to sue the contractor for damages, quickly seconded by another council member.   Well that never happened.   Well then of course he made a motion to put the possible lawsuit against the contractor on the next city council agenda for consideration.  Well that did not happen either.   So GREG SEBOURN did absolutely nothing along with so-called self-proclaimed fiscal conservative Mayor BRUCE WHITAKER.   Thank you Greg for sounding indignant and then doing absolutely nothing.  Yet after all this, Ferguson defended Greg Sebourn’s total lack of action on the FFFF website.   Well I guess because they are political buddies you and the FFFF owner and administrator will support them right or wrong.  So this begs the question as to what is the real agenda of the FFFF website.  Apparently it is not to hold all council members responsible to the people.   Certainly not the ones that Tony Bushala went to great lengths to get elected and then reelected, namely Bruce Whitaker and Greg Sebourn.   This is only my opinion based on everything I know and I Fullertonians I know a lot about this.

 

However, we the people do not have to and should not give Sebourn and Whitaker along with the rest of the city council a pass for their dismal failure to do right by the citizens of Fullerton.  I guess 1.7 million dollars does not buy us much if you have the unfortunate reality of the Fullerton City Council looking out for us.

 

What does all these items above have in common?  They have several things in common.  First, the abdication of the city council’s fiduciary duty to run the city with a modicum of honesty, transparency and decency.  Second, when very credible evidence and documentation is provided directly to the city council they refuse to deal with it and bury it like they have in each of the issues/scandals above.

 

What the city needs is a full time ethicist/historian to keep track and document each scandal fully?  Since the City of Fullerton has no one like that on the city payroll, I have taken it upon myself, free of charge to the good people of Fullerton to fulfill this very important role.

 

What this all proves is that there is no real difference between any of our council members for each and every one of them went along with or failed to deal with each and every scandal mentioned above.   For when it really counts, each and every one of them fails us.  The next time one of our council members states what a great job they are doing for us, please feel free to provide them a copy of this article and watch them ignore you afterwards.  After all ignoring the public is one of the few things our City Council does extremely well.  For example, after Barbara Rosen Sunny Hills resident, spoke about the terrible condition of Las Palmas Avenue bringing large chunks of the road, Mayor Whitaker stated that her concern would be addressed at the completion of all the public comments.  Yet, neither Mayor Whitaker nor anyone else on the dais addressed her specific concern about Las Palmas Avenue.  All you have to do is pay attention at any city council meeting and you learn very quickly that our city council members are anything but good public servants.

 

* Well I have just learned that Interim Police Chief David Heinig has stepped down and now we have Captain Siko as the Acting Fullerton Police Chief.  Based on my recent past experience with FPD Captain Siko, I will do everything I legally can to make sure that the next City Manager and our City Council do not appoint him as our next permanent Chief of Police.   I also will strongly request that the contracts for our next Police Chief and next City Manager be no longer than 2 years each.  For not to do this shows that the City Council has not learned any lessons from its past mistakes.  With that statement, I am making a very generous assumption that the City Council wants to have a city government more answerable to the Fullerton public going forward and we all know that all the evidence does not support that contention.

Unconscionable behavior by our Fullerton City Council, Fullerton City Attorney and the Fullerton Police Chief.

BELOW IS THE TRANSCRIPT OF MY REMARKS BEFORE THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL (MAYOR BRUCE WHITAKER, COUNCIL MEMBERS GREG SEBOURN, JENNIFER FITZGERALD, JESUS SILVA AND MAYOR PRO TEM DOUG CHAFFEE) ON MAY 15, 2017 AS WELL AS SOME ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS

BY BARRY LEVINSON

 

Back In February I witnessed unconscionable behavior by our Fullerton City Council, Fullerton City Attorney and the Fullerton Police Chief. The behavior was to provide False And Very Misleading Information about The Fullerton Child Sex Offender Residency Restriction Law To Justify Its Repeal! This False Narrative Lead By City Attorney James Touchstone Demonstrated A Lack Of Character By Him And All Who Played Along With This Charade.

Fullerton City attorney James Touchstone

I Am Here To Proclaim Very Loudly That Character Does Count And Not One Individual On The Dais That Evening Demonstrated Any Character!  Months ago they knew the facts but ignored them and went ahead anyway. They were warned. See this video below.

Whether you happen to agree with their votes or not, it is never good for the public to have elected and appointed officials who mislead, misinform and sometimes out and out lie to us. Diane Hickey, Joe Imbriano and myself clearly documented on the record here in this chamber that the erroneous information City Attorney James Touchstone spelled out as part of an official presentation to council recommending the repeal of Ordinance 3149 was indeed false.  He stated erroneously that the ordinance impacts all sex offenders when the ordinance clearly defines a sex offender as only a child sex offender for purposes of this law.

Here we are months later and still the Fullerton City Council continues to protect the pedophiles and refuses to acknowledge that the official presentation by our city attorney months back on this issue was based on falsehood. What does that tell you about the integrity, honesty and decency of our city council, police chief and our city attorney?

Council person Doug Chaffee”s actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Council person Jesus Silva’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

 

Council person Bruce Whitaker’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Police Chief Heinig on the right’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Council person Greg Sebourn’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. What a guy who thinks it ok to cancel an agenda item when the presenter is at the podium.

Vice President of Curt Pringle and associates Jennifer Fitzgerald.’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. She has had to recuse herself because one of her clients got a big payday from the Fullerton City Council.

 

Fullerton City Attorney Dick Jones’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. Check him out dozing while making big bucks. Could anybody look more disinterested that he?

After we proved that Mr. Touchstone provided false information to the council in support of his recommendation to repeal Ordinance 3149, every city council member ignored that fact and voted to repeal the ordinance, anyway. They in fact by not acknowledging James Touchstone’s egregious error, chose to be part of the deception. Touchstone’s failure to acknowledge his error after we corrected him strongly suggests that it was not an error at all but an intentional ploy/conspiracy to mislead the public on this very important issue. What has City Attorney Dick Jones done in regard to this misinformation given by his partner in his law firm?  As far as I know absolutely nothing! This whole scenario is shameless behavior by our City of Fullerton Government and can’t be tolerated going forward.

I can’t for certain claim that each and every one of those individuals will be held to account by the Fullerton public.  But what I can say is that God will in fact judge them for their ethical and moral failings as our elected and appointed Fullerton officials.

The only thing I can add to my prepared remarks that i presented at the public comment section of the Fullerton City Council meeting on May 15, 2017 is the following:

We the good people of Fullerton must stand up to demand form our city council and city government, integrity, honesty and representation that only considers the overall well-being of the citizens of Fullerton.

This must include coming regularly to city council meetings and making your voices heard by those who are supposed to represent us the people.

Introducing another one of Foolerton’s Phony Conservative Status Quo Establishment Big Government Union Hacks- Larry Bennett

The more things change the more they stay the same for those comprising an electorate that is not paying attention. Believe me they get by with a little help from their friends.

ponsi and cox

The RAGister’s establishment sycophant Lou Ponsi and Fitzgerald sycophant Gretchen Cox

The typical MO for political operatives here in Fullerton is to simply muddy the waters.

They for the most, put on a thin conservative political veneer, parse words, pat each other on the back, stand for what appears to be something that actually translates into nothing, say what amounts to nothing, do what amounts to nothing, and then

nordell

Robyn Nordell and Shawn Nelson both propped up phony conservative- Democrat turned Republican Jennifer Fitzgerald in the last election

make it possible for people like this come out of nowhere, take the public by surprise and stick it to the residents and taxpayers.

Well he is resurfacing for some more phony conservative acting classes at Fullerton City Hall. Just one problem, his reputation as an establishment union hack precedes him every step of the way. As a refresher, he was the one who presided over the cabal a few years back that tried to cling to power as the residents threw the three stooges that for decades, ran Fullerton into the ground out on their asses.

Well like usual he failed.

Larry Bennett was and is a tool of the FPD. At the time, Larry Bennett was protecting an out of control department that had multiple dead bodies on its hands.

Dean-Gochenour

Dean Gochenour died while in custody at the house of horrors-Fullerton Jail- Dean was the man who was found dead in his cell at the Fullerton jail and the officer who was in charge at the time, decided to smash his digitally activated recorder (DAR) rather than turn it over to the OC District Attorneys office.

Then there was Kelly Thomas

Then of course comes Larry Bennett to the rescue.  Larry Bennett’s laundry list of campaign donors is stacked to the hilt with those who who also supported the regime that for decades allowed the culture of corruption in the Fullerton Police department to flourish, the crony capitalist deals with the redevelopment scammers and the developers to go down hard and fast, and the bloated salaries and pension scams to fly at mach 2 that have left this town riddled with busted up roads everywhere, ridiculous gridlock with more high density housing on the way and no money left for anything other than The Fullerton Police departments murder and sexual assault lawsuits, and more raises and benefits for the police, fire and city workers that for the most part don’t even live here in Fullerton.

IS HE JUST ANOTHER ESTABLISHMENT HACK GOING ALONG WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT CROWD? LOOK AT HIS FACEBOOK POST FROM 2014. IT SHOWS JUST HOW COORDINATED THIS FRAMING WAS AND LARRY BENNETT WAS CONDONING IT WITHOUT EVER HAVING SEEN THE VIDEO THAT SHOWS NOTHING HAPPENED.

This is a failure of leadership when we excuse this behavior. Barry Levinson should have been booted from the commission. It’s not a tough call. It’s not a close call. We deserve better from our commissioners and we certainly deserve better from our councilmen. Do the right thing.

THIS IS THE CRAP HIS CABAL TURNED OUT WHILE HE WAS AT THE HELM TRYING TO DEFEND THE KILLER COPS AND THE THREE HACKS ON THE COUNCIL THAT WERE RUNNING FULLERTON INTO THE GROUND.

LARRY BENNETT RAN THE ANTI RECALL CAMPAIGN AND MOST LIKELY HAS TO HAVE APPROVED THIS MESSAGE BELOW WHICH IS TOTALLY WITHOUT ANY CLASS OR DIGNITY. SO DOES THAT MEAN MR BENNETT HAS NO CLASS OR DIGNITY? CERTAINLY IS NOT HE PORTRAYS HIMSELF IN PUBLIC.
