I HAVE NEVER SEEN BULL CRAP COME OUT OF A BEAR UNTIL I MET JOSH NEWMAN

The Democrats have a two-thirds super majority in both chambers of the California Legislature now after Republican Assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang lost her bid to advance to the state Senate. I was no fan of the hacks Royce was pimping but how fast, how low and how treasonous can you get in 6 months with her replacement Newman? Let us see. And this goes for all of you in Fullerton who were chummy with this clown. Well this isn’t funny anymore folks and this guy needs to be thrown out of office along with his female counter part in the Assembly, sicko Sex Ed Silva.

Darkness dawning on the 65th. Sex Ed Silva is back.

Forget the fact that he REFUSED TO TAKE A POSITION ON SB 18, THE MOST ANTI FAMILY, DANGEROUS, PARENTAL RIGHT DESTROYING BILL EVER PRESENTED IN THE HISTORY OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE. Let’s take a look at how he makes it possible to wreck California by going along with the psychotic, immoral thugs that the stupid people of this once great state keep electing.

The con job Newman’s handlers pulled off that produced Newman’s victory gives Democrats control of two-thirds of the 40 seats in the Senate.  This is enough for them to approve tax increases, suspend legislative rules, pass emergency legislation or overturn the governor’s vetoes without any support from Republicans.

Newman voted for Senate Bill 54, which unofficially has been called a “sanctuary state” bill. It bars state and local law enforcement agencies from using their resources, including money, facility, property, equipment or personnel, to help with immigration enforcement.

They would be prohibited from asking about immigration status. They would be prohibited from giving federal immigration authorities access to interview a person in custody or assisting them in immigration enforcement.

This massive burden is one of the main reasons California’s schools and infrastructure are in a total state of disrepair. Newman works for the illegals, not the taxpayers.

Illegal aliens cost California at least $30  billion every single year—this includes their contribution in terms of taxes

These estimates are likely very low, since they don’t include any intangible costs associated with crime or increased systemic strain, they low-ball remittance estimates, and the number of illegal aliens in California is realistically at least double the numbers used.

According to the Pew Reseach, the rate of Illegal Alien Males in the workforce is 12 percent higher that U.S. born males and it is all by design.  An illegal immigrant male residing in the United States is more likely to be gainfully employed than a male who is a legal immigrant or U.S. born citizen, according to a senior demographer at the Pew Research Center think tank. 

This is is a deliberate and Systematic Discrimination of All Natural born American citizens in favor of Illegal Alien Hispanics and a Deliberate Persecution particularly toward White Native born Americans.  At a time of economic crisis and high unemployment.

Illegal alien drunk drivers kill 13 Americans every day — that’s a death toll of 4,745 per year. Annualy more than 43,000 illegal aliens, were convicted of drug offenses. The violent crime category of assault, robbery, sexual assault, and family offenses comes to 12 percent. The non-violent crime grouping of larceny, fraud, and burglary totaled seven percent, and on the list goes — equaling 100 percent of illegal aliens who have been through the criminal justice system and inflicted thousands to millions in cost per alien on the system, for issues having nothing to do with their illegal entry into the country. 

In a 2007 Government Accountability Office study of 55,322 illegal aliens, analysts discovered that they were arrested at least a total of 459,614 times, averaging about eight arrests per illegal alien: 70 percent had between two and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests. Drug or immigration offenses accounted for 45 percent of all offenses, and approximately 12 percent (over 6,600 illegal aliens) were arrested for violent offenses such as murder, robbery, assault, and sex-related crimes.

FBI crime studies also shows heavy illegal alien involvement in criminal activity that revealed these statistics:

  • 75 percent of those on the most wanted criminals list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

  • One quarter of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals, as are more than 40 percent of all inmates in Arizona and 48 percent in New Mexico jails.

  • Over 53 percent of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

NEWMAN VOTED TO MAKE CALIFORNIA A SANCTUARY STATE WHILE MASSIVELY INCREASING UNEMPLOYMENT FOR LAW ABIDING CALIFORNIANS. 

Newman voted for Senate Bill 6 in a 28-11 vote that creates a $12 million legal defense fund for immigrants who are facing deportation.

NEWMAN VOTED TO MAKE CALIFORNIA A SANCTUARY STATE WHILE MASSIVELY INCREASING UNEMPLOYMENT FOR LAW ABIDING CALIFORNIANS WITH FREE LEGAL SERVICES TO ILLEGALS.

Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, praises Josh the bear full of bullcrap Newman as Newman toes the party line with the planned destruction of Kalifornia.

What are you afraid of Mister Kevin de Leon? Yo no like the gabachos?

Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de LeonD-Los Angeles, WHO IS IN THE PROCESS OF DESTROYING CALIFORNIA with his radical illegal alien invasion agenda and economic destruction policies welcomed Newman to the Senate and said a tireless campaign team helped Democrats succeed in conservative Orange County.

Nice scarf sweetie? Is that you Senor Kevin de Leon?

 

“Senator-elect Newman was obviously a highly effective candidate, and I know he will be a great elected leader for his constituents,” de Leon said in a statement. Yes this bear is full of bull crap as he votes for the largest tax increase in State History.

NEWMAN VOTED TO MAKE CALIFORNIA A SANCTUARY STATE WHILE MASSIVELY INCREASING UNEMPLOYMENT FOR LAW ABIDING CALIFORNIANS WITH FREE LEGAL SERVICES TO ILLEGALS WHILE VOTING FOR THE LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN THE HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA

Thanks to Newman, barely reaching the minimum necessary number of votes, Governor Jerry Brown and the Democratic Legislature were able to pass the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, also known as SB1.

Newman’s look of sincerity

The new fees and increased taxes will amount to $52.4 billion over 10 years with barely 2 percent making its way to road repair. The vast majority of funding will go towards BACK FILLING AREAS IN THE STATE BUDGET THAT ARE BEING EXPANDED FOR ILLEGALS, Agenda 21 road to nowhere transportation projects and of course pension back fill.

You sick of looking at this guys mug?

JOSH NEWMAN TURNED OUT TO BE THE BEAR THAT IS FULL OF BULL CRAP WHO IS SET ON GIVING CALIFORNIA TO THE ILLEGALS AND LETTING THEM MAKE US PAY FOR EVERYTHING.

political hack defined

Yes all this while they rob us blind with the highest taxes in the nation, the worst schools in the nation, the highest crime in the nation, the worst roads in the nation, the biggest welfare population in the nation,

the most illegals in the nation and the worst leaders in the nation.

What’s next Josh, free college for them, free medical care for them, free dental care for them, free food for them, free housing for them, free fertility treatments for them, free car insurance for them, free bus passes and train passes for them, free drinks for them, free massage parlor visits for them, free sex changes for them? Where does it end? I know where it is about to begin.

WHAT AN AGENDA 21 S.C.A.G. OPERATIVE

Now Bruce Whitaker admits he was out drinking with Joe Felz on election night, and in my opinion, no doubt celebrating the re election of those keeping the lid nice and tight on the corruption you know like the 5 million dollar Fullerton golf scandal.

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/felz-734973-city-fullerton.html

“Whitaker said he and Felz each had a beer around 1 a.m. Wednesday during the councilman’s re-election party at JP23 BBQ & Smokehouse in the 100 block of South Harbor Boulevard” 

bruce-and-joe-2

WHAT A TEAM

 

………“He (Felz) seemed to be in control of his faculties,” Whitaker said Wednesday night.

Hughes said in the memo that he received a telephone call at his residence from a watch commander who reported that Felz was involved in a minor crash and that a field sergeant believed the city manager was “emitting an odor of alcohol.”

So Joe Felz, after drinking with Bruce, gets in his car, and in a residential area,  jumps the curb at 1:30 am, hits a tree, gets his car stuck, frees the car, attempts to drive off for 175 feet or so and, gets stopped by the police, smells of booze, allegedly demands that the officers call the police chief, is given a private set of sobriety tests and was allowed to delay the breathalizer, and then gets a ride home from the police, no charges, nothing to see move along now even though his car was damaged enough not to be driven to work today.

Dan Hughes apparently had at least four officers present at the scene who did not immediately conduct the field sobriety tests or administer the breathalyzer. The officers on the scene according to an unnamed source were officers Boline, Haid, G. Eibert, and Wilkerson. These officers have the experience, the expertise and  the arrest rates that get them the MADD awards at the council meetings yet they were called off of immediately testing Felz for DUI. Why is that?  That is because Joe Felz allegedly demanded that they call Dan Hughes.

Why did these officers listen to the person who allegedly demanded that they call the police chief when he smelled like alcohol after he just lost control of their car, hit a curb, and took out a tree and not make the judgement themselves to administer tests and evaluate and if necessary arrest Felz?  Why didn’t they put the cuffs on him right away? If this was you or I, they would have.

No, instead these officers listened to the City manager that smelled like alcohol, who just lost control of his car, hit a curb, and took out a tree that allegedly demanded they call  The police chief Dan Hughes instead of immediatley doing what any good police officer would do. That is to immediately administer the tests. Apparently Hughes ordered them to deviate from policy and wait for Jeff Corbett to arrive some time later to evaluate Felz without another witnessing officer present and conduct the tests. Corbett is not one of the FPD’s  field sobriety experts as he has not conducted a DUI test in years. So why delay and bring in someone who is not the most properly suited for the task? Well it is of course to control the outcome. Corbett is Hughes’s special guy.

According to an unnamed source, Corbett led Felz away from the other officers and conducted the tests out of sight of the officers present and he did it alone which is a clear violation of  FPD policy. Perhaps that is why Felz passed the test with flying colors.

Was Felz given a PAS test? Why not?

 

unnamed-1

Felz and John Murray pictured here having drinks in better days

To refresh your memories, this is a bizarre dichotomy of the sickest kind. Let me explain. Joe Felz was obviously driving impaired with evidence of a crash and alcohol on his breath and yet procedures are violated in order for him to go home instead of going to jail.

felza-150x150-1

Remember this man? He was arrested in Fullerton for DUI and was also given a ride home, but his was, unfortunately, to his final resting place

dean-gochenour-2

Dean Gochenour obviously was driving impaired with evidence of  alcohol on his breath and yet procedures were violated in order for him to go to the morgue instead of going home.

Supervising Mr. Gochenour while in the jail was FPD Officer Vince Mater who ended up serving probation after pleading guilty to destroying an audio recording of conversations he had with Dean who later committed suicide in jail.

So why was Banana Republic Emperor Joe Felz not arrested for DUI and other misdemeanor charges at the scene?

images-8

So why in the world was Bruce Whitaker  drinking with Joe Felz at 1 am on election night?

bruce-1

Why would Bruce appear to come to his defense and state that he had “one beer” with him and just minutes later according to the officers on the scene reek of alcohol and yet Bruce Whitaker stated that “He (Felz) seemed to be in control of his faculties,”?  What kind of BS is this? 

What’s in it for Bruce Whitaker to step out and make a statement?  He covers his own ass.  If Felz was drunk, Bruce knowing this and letting the man drive home would look bad for not only Bruce Whitaker, but could implicate him in liabilities down the road.

Dan Hughes said City Manager Joe Felz was suspected of consuming alcohol – but wasn’t impaired – prior to being involved in single-vehicle crash early Wednesday, according to a memo from Fullerton Police Chief Dan Hughes.

“On November 9, 2016 at approximately 0130 hours FPD officers were dispatched to 255 W. Glenwood regarding a possible collision where the vehicle had struck a curb and was stuck on the sidewalk. The driver was later determined to be city manager Joe Felz. I received a telephone call at my residence from the Watch Commander who informed me that the city manager was involved in a minor single vehicle collision and that the sergeant believed the city manager was emitting an odor of alcohol. I informed the Watch Commander that I would call the sergeant to obtain additional information and that I would have the field sergeant conduct a preliminary assessment by performing Field Sobriety Tests and if the sergeant believed there was a level of intoxication that met the criteria to be a violation of the law, we would contact the CHP to investigate. I provided the above directions to the field sergeant and also briefly spoke to the city manager on the phone to explain what protocol would be followed. The sergeant conducted the assessment and made the determination that the city manager had consumed alcohol, but did not meet the criteria of 23152(a) CVC. The city manager was driven home and his vehicle was towed. During this time period, I also contacted Mayor Fitzgerald and informed her I was following the protocol of notifying the mayor about the contact with the city manager. I informed the mayor of the directions I had provided to the field sergeant and that I would re-contact her when the investigation was complete. Her only instructions were to follow normal procedures. A collision report was documented under case 2016-74804 and a supplemental report will be completed by the sergeant documenting the assessment of the city manager.”

We know he was consuming alcohol. Bruce admitted it, the officer on the scene smelled it, he crashed his car and gets a free ride home with no charges filed?

I know of people who were given a DUI when their car was already in their driveway, they were on their grass with the keys in their pocket and FPD arrested them. Joe Felz jumps a curb, takes out a tree, smells like booze and gets the royal treatment. That just goes to show how corrupt this city and its leadership is.

Our very own Bruce Whitaker even makes a subjective determination as to his condition at the time they were drinking together and stated  that he was in control of his faculties. What a guy.

Bruce Whitaker needs to stand up now and demand a full investigation of what policies were violated as well as the release of the body cameras and get the department to explain why the breathalyzer tests were not taken not immediately upon arrival at the scene but long after. Nothing short of that is acceptable.

Dan Hughes entered the scene 5 years ago letting the FPD officers that murdered Kelly Thomas watch the video over and over and write their reports,

HughesSign-640x480

Dan Hughes is leaving the scene on Friday with what appears to be obstruction of justice involving what should have been the arrest and prosecution of a city official on DUI charges.  mdiex4-b781026172z.120121114192416000g9n1b723p.3

Dan Hughes is now going to work to run security at Disney? What kind of bizarre demented behavior will Dan Hughes be protecting in the Tragic Kingdom? I could go on and on about Disney and what goes on there behind closed doors and under the park.

Folks, just consider where we are and what they have done to the city. It is little wonder these two were throwing back a few that night. The show must go on folks until we replace these kinds of officials and public servants with people possessing integrity and wisdom.

Just look at how corrupt this whole think appears on the surface. This is lawlessness ladies and gentlemen. Heck they murdered Kelly Thomas on camera and got away with it. This thing compared to the Kelly Thomas murder to them is like choir practice.

Back to #1, why was not a breathalyzer required immediately upon arrival at the scene by the attending officers? Why the deviation from the protocol????   Did Hughes wave it off?  Why did the FPD not follow protocol is the question.

This man who is our City Manager, was, according to Bruce Whitaker, seemingly in control of his faculties. What is scary is that this man is in control of our city while we have our esteemed Bruce Whitaker drinking with and defending this man.

felza-150x150-1

WHAT A GUY

All I can say is thank God it was just a tree that got mowed down. Will Fullerton ever learn from its past as justice is dispensed so arbitrarily in this community of roads in ruin overrun by  its city officials and our youth awash in liquor? Based on the outcome of the last election, I highly doubt it.

Fullerton Planning Commission (Larry Bennett, Peter Gambino, Silber and Dunlap) Once Again Sides with the Special Interests and Ignores the Communities of Sunny Hills Estates and Old Sunny Hills. By Barry Levinson

I was disappointed but not surprised that the Planning Committee voted for the 32-unit development by Melia Homes on a scant 3.3 acres.  One committee member had the audacity to state that the traffic in and around the Laguna Road Elementary School was not the developer’s problem (but it most definitely should be the city of Fullerton’s problem along with the Fullerton School District).

bennett

Fitzgerald appointee and sock puppet Larry Bennett

By voting for the zoning change the developer is requesting, you are allowing him to make the traffic problems worse.  Therefore, the serious traffic congestion at the beginning and end of each day at Laguna Road School is in fact in part the developer’s problem.   The commissioners are making that property much more valuable to the landowner by voting for the zoning change from office/medical space to attached housing, yet giving him a pass on the added traffic congestion and added parking problems the developer will create for the surrounding neighborhood.   It seems that as commissioners you are not thinking clearly and certainly ignoring the very legitimate concerns of the community.

It is most definitely the city’s responsibility and obligation to make a decision that does not harm any of the residents.  This commissioner along with the other 3 voting for its approval, have abdicated that role.  This project will exacerbate the traffic congestion and the potential for additional accidents in and around the Laguna Road School.

Big developer puppet Silber who hates cars and loves high density with a yes vote on the disastrous DCCSP

Yes it is also a FSD issue but the last time I looked it is in and within the City of Fullerton.  The next traffic injury or death is on the four-committee members, who voted for this (Peter Gambino, Larry Bennett, Silber and Dunlap).  It should be noted that this very important vote was made with 2 of the 7-committee members not in attendance, namely Kevin Pendergraft and Ma‘Ayn Johnson.

Agenda 21 SCAG operative Ma’yaan Johnson voted yes for the DCCSP was a no show on this mess

A committee concerned about doing the right thing would have at least postponed the vote until they could get all of the committee members to actually meet their obligation and duty to represent the good people of Fullerton.   The way this city conducts business is both indefensible and deplorable.

The “Boss” Joe Felz

 

P.S.  There was not one bit of evidence asked for by the committee or given by Melia Homes that demonstrated that a smaller single-family development was not financially feasible on that 3.3-acre site.  The public did speak to a new single-family development across from Laguna Road School of 7 houses on about 3 acres of land.  That is obviously financially viable but we are to believe the sales BS of Melia Homes that they need a minimum of 32 homes on 3.3 acres to be financially viable, only a short few hundred feet away.   For all the degrees and education represented on this Planning Commission, they sure seem to lack of whole bunch of common sense and objectivity.

Here is the description of the other project from the City of Fullerton.

The project is a residential development that proposes seven single family detached houses on a 2.97 acre lot, with a gross density of 2.57 dwelling units per acre. The lots will range in size from 17,620 square feet to 20,879 square feet. Vehicular access to the houses would be from Laguna Road via gated private drive that would be constructed

The City of Fullerton Government Continues It’s March To Make Its Deals with Specific Special Interests At Both The June 21 Council Meeting And The June 22 Planning Committee Meeting. By Barry Levinson

 

 

Barry Levinson

First before I talk about the 1st two agenda items on the June 21, 2016 council meeting, I must bring to your attention Item No. 2 under Closed Session.   (Item No. 2 – Conference with Real Property Negotiator – Per Government Code Section 54956.8.)  It lists two pieces of property.   One property, Meridian Health Club is located at 1535 Deerpark Drive and the other property is located at 1747 West Commonwealth Ave near the Grace Ministries International Building. The parties besides the city are the Meridian Club and Grace Ministries International.

The city-owned land occupied by the Meridian Sports Club, seen here, has been identified as property the city would be willing to sell.

The city-owned land occupied by the Meridian Sports Club, seen here, has been identified as property the city would be willing to sell.

Why is the city once again in sole source negotiations on two pieces of property?  In order to sell any parcel of property the best way to maximize its market value is to put it up for sale to the public at large.  Similar to the comments by Joe Felz at a recent Library Board meeting, where he recommended we sell the Hunt Library to Grace Ministries with a sole source bid, here we have the same shenanigans by our city.

o-300x225

This building at Grace Ministries in Fullerton looks more like a bank than a church. That’s because that is precisely what it is. MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MONEY GO IN AND NEVER COME BACK TO THE COMMUNITY JUST LIKE CITY HALL.

This is not in the best financial interest of the people of Fullerton.  Would any council member or Mr. Felz enter into a sole source negotiation to sell their residence or would they put it on the open market to attract the best possible price.  Yes, Mr. Felz or Ms. Fitzgerald can offer there home for a less than market price because it is their house.   The properties in question are not owned by Mr. Felz or Ms. Fitzgerald but are owned by the people of Fullerton.  It is the City Manager’s and the City Council’s fiduciary duty to maximize the sales price for any piece of city property.  To do otherwise would be committing malfeasance in my opinion.

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

Jennifer Fitzgerald, Vice President of Curt Pringle & Associates running around masquerading as our mayor-

Both Mr. Imbriano and myself talked about this troubling situation.  Mr. Imbriano asked that they agendize a change on how the city sells “excess” city property.  Of course all five council members and our city manager ignored our pleas for fiscal and fiduciary sanity.

Then we go on to the main event, regular business and we have before us an “exclusive negotiating agreement with Pelican Community, Inc. for 12 months with 2 optional 45-day extensions to come up with a concept/basic designs for the Fox Block including a 200 space parking structure and an office building of unknown size and height.  The particulars of the Fox Theatre including how much additional work is required and an estimated reopening date were not provided during the agenda item discussion.  Leland Wilson, the President of the Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation (FHTF) non-profit group spoke but provided no information on the status of the Fox Theatre Renovation.  Ten years plus and counting and we hear about plans for a parking structure and a major new office building to be built next to the Fox Theatre only.  Please go to the FHTF website at www.fullertonfox.org to see how little information there is about the status and future of the Fox Theatre in Fullerton.

leland

Is the Fox running the henhouse over at the Fox keeping the rats nests ready for the wrecking ball as he excercises the public?

There is one more point I need to make concerning this exclusive agreement.  Mr. Hamm the owner of Pelican Properties, Inc. stated that he thought an office building should be a major part of his concept for the Fox Block.  Yet at the Planning Committee meeting recently the city staff and some commissioners such as Larry Bennett where stating that the reason they want to change the zoning of the property on Bastanchury, formerly the Fullerton Internal Medicine Clinic to townhomes is because there is no demand for office space in Fullerton.   So on the one hand the city argues to change zoning from office/medical space because of lack of demand for an office/medical building but a mile south on Harbor and Chapman, we entered into an exclusive arrangement with one developer to build us more office space.  Either there is or is not demand for office space in Fullerton.

Council Agenda Item No. 2 is no better.   City of Fullerton puts on the ballet the right to open up to 9 marijuana dispensaries along with the legalization of the commercial manufacture and distribution in our city.  Of course the city wants this to make money as it requests a whopping 15% tax with the ability to raise it to 20%.  It is not enough that a previous council has destroyed our once family oriented downtown with numerous bars and nightclubs that every weekend attracts thousands of people throughout Southern California including some undesirable types.

13138859_1097539640289462_1735803308437438790_n

 

One city study estimated it costs the taxpayers a net 1 million dollars a year for this financial and social fiasco.  I spoke of these past follies by our city government and asked them not to place this measure on our November ballet.  Mayor Fitzgerald got cold feet and quickly made a motion to continue this item until after the election.  The staff’s presentation ignored the health and moral concerns of making pot legally readily available in Fullerton.  I suspect that Ms. Haluza was directed by her boss to ignore the moral and health implications of this issue.  If that was the case, what does that tell you about our City Manager, Joe Felz?

images-43-150x150

There is another very important point that I must make concerning this agenda item.  Question:  If legalizing the sale and manufacture of marijuana in Fullerton is such a good idea, then why all the restrictions on both the placement and number of establishments? Why is it   necessary to place a 15% tax on marijuana sales with the city option to raise it to 20%?

bong

It seems that once again it is all about generating additional tax revenue to make up the huge shortfall created by our city council and their very generous raises to police 6% a year and fire 9% over two years.   It is kind of funny/ironic to think that the city wanted to bring marijuana to Fullerton to help pay for the very generous police raises.  These things can only happen in Fullerton. felza-150x150Question: Why did Joe Felz and Mayor Fitzgerald bring this very controversial and unnecessary agenda item forward at this time, if it had zero support?  (The final vote was 5 to 0 to continue the item until after the November elections.  I believe Mayor Fitzgerald had the authority to keep this from being on the agenda.  Obviously, this was a trial balloon by Felz and Fitzgerald, which they originally hoped would pass but got cold feet when they saw the amount of opposition.

Joe Imbriano speaks on Love Fullerton

Love Fullerton is another non profit cash register. DONATE DONATE DONATE all over their site. The group does not serve tens of thousands of under served residents, it mobilizes hundreds of people to clean up government parks, buildings, wash police cars, hand out water bottles, repair schools and playgrounds, and uses parents to do teachers jobs and funnels more money into more non profits while aiding and abetting the social service kidnapping rings and the mismanagement of the cash rich school districts and the out of control union fleecing of city hall’s coffers by the cabal that has run these things into the ground. Oh yeah they will paint an old ladies house and clean out a ditch. Stop embellishing the feel good fraud while Rome burns. This is just a smoke screen to cover for all the disappearing money from the pews, the mismanaged cash rich school districts, city hall and a catharsis for the guilt ridden deniers failure to act on the most pressing issues of our time that have been discussed at length on this site.

WHILE THE CHURCH CONTINUES TO ABANDON ITS RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE POOR, IT DIRECTS ITS EFFORTS TO SERVE THE ENTITIES THAT OUR TAXES ARE STOLEN FROM US TO SUPPORT.

MAYOR JENNIFER FITZGERALD, CITY MANAGER JOE FELZ AND A MAJORITY OF FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL HAVE PUT UP THIS SIGN – FULLERTON FOR SALE! By Barry Levinson

12063992_1697233570500142_1750532264_n

Mayor Fitzgerald along with the council majority have willfully put the city into millions of dollars of debt (current $2.8 million dollar deficit) and yet they want to keep on giving to their special interest buddies nonstop!

Rotten to the core-Fullerton’s core corridor proposed fast track back door road to an urban nightmare.

THIS WILL BE VOTED ON IN THE NEAR FUTURE UNLESS WE STOP THEM. THEY ARE TRYING TO RAM THIS THROUGH BEHIND OUR BACKS

Cameron Irons “Core and Corridor is a good thing. Read about it beyond Facebook posts. Current system benefits insiders who lobby each project on its own.” NOW IF THAT ISN’T THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS!

The Plot Thickens as We the Public Get Closer to the Truth about the Excessive Water Losses at Laguna Lake.

The Plot Thickens as We the Public Get Closer to the Truth about the Excessive Water Losses at Laguna Lake.

by Barry Levinson

Several months ago, as Parks and Recreation Committee member, I directly asked for and received in writing from the City of Fullerton’s Water System Manager, Dave Schickling, the water usage at Laguna Lake over the last 5 years.   The water usage over this period of time indicated that the water consumed was almost identical each of those years.

Therefore, why did the city not take appropriate action to fix this problem before now?  Why didn’t the Water Systems Manager inform the Parks and Recreation Committee about this ongoing long-term water loss problem at Laguna Lake?

We now know that the city of Fullerton has not been identifying the cost of water used by the city as a separate line item in the budget but rather passing all of its costs thru to the ratepayers in Fullerton.

At the September Park and Recreation Committee meeting, I made a motion that was seconded to agendize a change in how water is accounted for by the Parks and Recreation Department from the current pass-thru method to ratepayers to an itemized expense included in the costs for the Parks and Recreation Department.

This most needed change would provide for an accurate accounting of all costs to run the department. The current pass-thru method hides the true cost of the Parks and Recreation Department, thereby understating the real city budget deficits for the next two years by hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Therefore, apparently the actual deficits are not the reported 2.8 million dollars over the next two years, but closer to $3.5 million dollars or more.

I also asked that Director Curiel invite Mr. Schickling to come before our committee to explain why the city apparently ignored this water loss issue at Laguna Lake for many years and at the same time did not make it known to the public.  This situation is troubling since water is one of the larger costs necessary to run the Parks and Recreation Department:

Fullerton city government transparency must start with an accurate accounting of all costs required to run this city.

P.S.  About six days before the normally scheduled monthly Parks and Recreation meeting in October, I received an email message from Director Hugo Curiel, stating that our Committee Chair had requested we go dark in October because the Water Department/City was not ready to present on the water accounting issue.

I guess the city/water department was not ready to provide answers as to why they did not disclose the excessive water loss problem when it began at least 5 years ago and maybe as long as 11 years ago when the Laguna Lake renovation was completed.  I believed that the people of Fullerton deserved answers as soon as possible.  I guess the city and/or our Parks and Recreation Committee Chair on the other hand thought it was prudent to put off the day of reckoning as long as possible.

I know one thing that is for sure, this would be the absolute worst time to consider the Downtown Core and Corridor and the College Town Special Projects.

For every member of the council as well as the city manager must know that we the public have not sacrificed so willingly and so much to conserve water only to give it all back and then some to developers and their consultant representatives.

I report, you decide.

The Coyote Hills Parcel Tax

You don’t actually think the City of Fullerton is going to buy you a park with all the money they have sucked out of all of you through decades of taxative extortion do you? 12004709_10207745040414113_9180720121378584771_n

Just in time for the “H.E.R.O.” program to rear its ugly head on the agenda where the 4F mafia, Jan Fluoride, Jencurt Fitzpringle, and Doug Chaffeeppoo will be voting for thereby setting up the framework for a “Citywide special assessment district” to help bolster the endless, out of control public employee union pay raises and float the sinking pension ship under the guise of “smart” energy programs and red tape ribbon cutting.

Yes folks, introducing the latest and greatest idea since the FPD handed out the blue shirts and set up the taco truck on Tuesday night at city hall. Introducing the new “parcel tax” to pay off Chevron as they ride up the value on their sand dune wasteland called Coyote Hills. Yes it, to this day, remains an unremediated, unbuildable, unstable, seisimic nightmare riddled with hidden improperly capped oil and gas wells with toxic soil abounding flanked by fire ants, rats and rattlesnakes smack dab on top of a fault line without a drop of water anywhere to be found. 

You already gave at the office you say? Haven’t had enough of OC vector control, OC Dept of sanitation, FSD, NOCCD, MWD, or FJUHSD’s catheter into your wallet through their property tax levy party?  Get ready for another mainline insertion of another line item without a veto.

You guessed, you, the residents will be picking up the tab. Of course the city doesn’t have the money to buy the land. Hell they don’t even have the money to fix a stinking drinking fountain that has been broken for 2 and 1/2 years over at the ball field at Chapman park.

Yes the 4f council mafia hands out raises and benies and lawsuit settlements in the back room up behind the dais every 1st and 3rd Tuesday afternoon like lolipops on halloween to the unions and the rape victims while you, the taxpayer, are still stuck in traffic. They just don’t have enough left over for the more important things like what they actually exist to procure and maintain, that is crucial infrastructure.

No instead, they ignore the mosquito infested storm drain system, the 300 million in road, sewer and water main repairs while they try to ram through the job killing ten story tilt up nightmare called the DCCP and the WiFi prison called the College Town nuthouse over on Nutwood  to boost revenues just enough to keep the unfunded pension liabilities from affecting Foolerton’s credit rating while you all stay mesmerized by a parade, and a fireworks show.

You want a walk in the park, well, haha, its gonna cost you gang. Chevron will get their money the old fashioned way and you will hand yours over the oldest way in the book: at levy point.

Yes Coyote Hills is beautiful and yes because it is not safe for any sort of development whatsoever in its present form, it should remain as open space. Remember, parks don’t make any money for the city unless they pack them full of cell towers. Development does and as long as we have a Flory, Fitzgerald and Chaffee council majority that exists to protect and serve the 700 city employees and not the 140,000 residents, we will have the devil in the details shoved up our backsides till the cows come home folks. More to come on this gang, so stay tuned.

FULLERTON BUDGET VOTE Or why can’t we get a majority of our council to be concerned with our budget deficits?

 

FULLERTON BUDGET VOTE

Or why can’t we get a majority of our council to be concerned with our budget deficits? by Barry Levinson

 

Barry Levinson

Barry Levinson

On Tuesday, the 9th of June, the city council split their votes 2 for and 2 against the 2015-2016 and the 2016-2017 budgets that had projected million dollar plus deficits for at least the next two years. Fitzgerald and Flory voted for the budget and Whitaker and Sebourn voted against approving the budget as presented by the city. Council member Chaffee was absent, which created an even number of council members to be present and thus resulted in the budget vote going down to defeat. It will be revisited in the upcoming council meeting on Tuesday June 16th.  Read the rest of this entry »

Why Can’t Fullerton City Government Be Administered Like Any Other Well-Run Non-Profit Organization? By Barry Levinson

Other Well-Run Non-Profit Organization? By Barry Levinson

 

The rule of thumb with non-profit organizations, such as charities is that 60 to 90% of the money goes directly to its mission and only 10 to 40% goes to actually running the non-profit, i.e. administrative costs. Now we come to another non-profit institution, the City of Fullerton.

It is with great urgency that I write this article/post.
On Monday, May 11, 2015 a joint meeting of the Park and Recreation Committee and the Energy Resource Management Committee approved a far reaching proposal to impose an overall state mandated 28% reduction in our water usage that with council approval will go into effect on June 1, 2015. The highlights are as follows:  Read the rest of this entry »
