Barry Levinson calls out the self-serving, disingenuous, deceitful and deplorabe Fullerton City Council
Fullertonians are simply tired and disgusted with the self-serving, disingenuous political games that are played out at our council meetings. Just since the beginning of this year alone, this council has disgraced itself and shown that all too often your votes do not support the very people that you are charged to represent. Here is a partial list of your recent deceitful and deplorable actions.
- We witnessed the false claims of our Mayor Bruce Whitaker who brought back settled business in the form of changing our election schedule. This will result in allowing Greg Sebourn to run for re-election in 2018 in the third district after serving his full four-year term. Mayor Bruce Whitaker placed this back on the agenda resulting in disenfranchising the second district from 2018 to 2020, while at the very same time giving the third district not one but two representatives, Greg Sebourn or a challenger and Jesus Silva. This action of Mayor Bruce Whitaker results in undermining the whole purpose for the district elections.
- The Council continues to ignore the will of the people by approving Agenda 21 high-density buildings. The city council votes to change zoning requirements and ignore our General Plan to allow developers free rein in our city.
Council member Jennifer Fitzgerald’s actions are the most troubling, as she was heavily involved in creating our latest General Plan. Questions for Council member Fitzgerald: Why do think it is proper to ignore our General Plan and the vast majority of the public? Does it have to do with your VP position with Curt Pringle and Associates?
- Finally the City Attorney’s arguments to repeal Ordinance 3149, our former child sex offender residency restriction law, misrepresented important facts and mislead the public about the legal status of that ordinance. The council’s unanimous decision to turn its backs on our children because a convicted child sex offender not even living in Southern California filed seventeen lawsuits throughout the state is shameful. Our city council did not want to spend the relatively few dollars defending a very good law. The residency restrictions only applied to child sex offenders not all sex offenders, which has not been adjudicated by any California court. There was simply no justifiably good reason to repeal it at this time.
Barry Levinson, the driving force of Fullerton’s sex offender ordinance discusses the despicable behavior of The Fullerton City Council in repealing Fullertons sex offender ordinance.
MORE PROOF THAT THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER HAS BECOME TOTALLY INCONSEQUENTIAL AS A SOURCE OF LOCAL NEWS.
THAT PROOF IS THE ENDORSEMENTS OF BRUCE WHITAKER, JENNIFER FITZGERALD AND SUE GAPINSKI FOR FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL. By Barry Levinson
Yesterday, the Orange County Register endorsed Bruce Whitaker for Fullerton City Council.
Here in part are the comments about Bruce Whitaker from the editorial: “While there are several good options among the 12 candidates seeking three City Council seats in Fullerton, Councilman Bruce Whitaker is undoubtedly our favorite choice due to his steadfast defense of free markets and property rights and his important role as fiscal watchdog for the city.”
After getting up from falling off my chair, I read the last part of the OC Register’s quote about Bruce Whitaker again as follows: …”and his important role as fiscal watchdog for the city.”
I guess the OC Register editorial board has been asleep at the wheel for the last year. Their crack investigative team must be ignorant of many of Whitaker’s recent votes. Because just like Council member Whitaker, the OC Register is ignoring a 4 to 5 million dollar finding related to our Fullerton City Golf Course, they are ignoring his vote to appoint an Agenda 21 supporting S.C.A.G. employee to our Planning Committee (S.C.A.G. is the largest unelected, taxpayer funded, bureaucratic governmental agency in the entire country), and lastly they are ignoring Whitaker’s keeping silent on a agenda item brought by the city to our city council to extend a lease with the Summit House Restaurant on Fullerton parkland with the exact same terms through October 2061. Wow and after all this the OC Register states that Bruce Whitaker is fulfilling his “important role as fiscal watchdog for the city”. But I guess the Register is counting on Bruce Whitaker to allow the developers to have pretty much free rein from our Fullerton City Council, lead by Bruce Whitaker, Jennifer Fitzgerald and Sue Gapinski.
The same OC Register endorsed Whitaker’s newly anointed protégé, Sue Gapinski, who in answering an important interview question concerning Fullerton said to Fullerton Observer’s Jesse La Tour that she has no idea how to solve the problem but will listen to the people of Fullerton.
I feel so much better that a candidate that came out of nowhere, has no real platform and states she has no idea how to solve a Fullerton problem, and gets the nod of the OC Register.
Finally endorsing big government and FPOA (Fullerton Police Officers Association) union backed Mayor Jennifer Fitzgerald is indeed the biggest joke of all. She too, ignored my 4 to 5 million dollar finding. She too voted to appoint the SCAG senior planner to the planning commission as well. In my opinion she has a built in conflict of interest, as she is Vice President of Curt Pringle and Associates, a lobbyist and public relations firm that has many, many developer clients and deals directly with local cities all the time. She makes her employment situation that much worse by refusing to provide the good people of Fullerton a complete list of all Curt Pringle and Associates’ clients.
The only thing I can say is that the OC Register should have stayed in bankruptcy and closed its doors forever. They in large part have voluntarily given up any claim to accurately report the local news here in Fullerton and elsewhere throughout Orange County. These endorsements are more proof of the irrelevance of the current OC Register paper.
Can’t say I didn’t tell you so.
You know this whole Coyote Hills things really stinks to high heaven. Come to think of it, something is really rotten in the state of Denmark. So let me ask all of you some questions. For those of you on the Coyote Hills mailing list, have you received one iota of information on the platforms of the candidates like they always send out? Have you been invited to the altar call for the trip to San Francisco to get the EPA involved? How about a liitle rendevous with the Army Corps of Engineers to discuss the riparian access sign off issues? Is the answer a resounding NO? So what the heck is going on?
The election is 8 days away, and with last Friday night’s blues, the judge just told you all to stick it and the police and fire unions are running the mail carriers till midnight jamming your mailboxes full of hit pieces designed to put the developers all into striking position. If you haven’t figured it out yet, old time favorites like Royce, The Register, Nelson, Nordell and the NIMBY types like Robert Jensen are all running cover for all of these people. It is how the corrupt game is played in dirty Fullerton politics.
Yes sure, as a matter of fact, you Coyote Hills people probably thought all along that you could trust the city right? You thought that through this process that they would keep their word and help you fill out the forms the correct way right? Are you kidding me? Well there is nothing like putting all your political capital into a commodity with an expiration date that has already past and that is exactly what the Friends of Coyote Hills has done.
Don’t get me wrong folks. Police union hack Benedict Arnold Chaffee turned on all of you and voted to stick it to all of us
and sold you all out while you thought the union hack Flory would turn out to be another Socks Silva and boy did you get conned as she turned on all of you and voted to stick it to all of us
Then there was the Nelson Royce plant Whitaker who believes property rights mean the owner should be able to do whatever their hearts desire with their property and if he had it his way, there would be no zoning at all who turned on all of you and voted to stick it to all of us.
Ah yes you can always count on a land surveyor like Greg who emerged from Tony B’s backyard a changed man as he turned on all of you and voted to stick it to all of us.
You can always trust the Curt Pringle VP, developer lobbyist, Jennifer Fitzgerald to show up to a ground breaking to a church parking structure and get the entire church to wash police cars as she gets you all sit out the biggest heist in Fullerton’s history as she turned on all of you and voted to stick it to all of us.
The Fullerton City council turned a rattle snake infested, rat farm, full of owls, mice, lice, fire ants, un remediated polluted soil, and uncapped oil and gas wells on a fault line into a casino ladies and gentlemen and they are playing with your money. They did it when they rezoned the property from oil and gas to residential and with the help of the judicial system, now they want you to buy it back with money we don’t have, at a price we cannot afford and all after they practically gave it away.
Yes Chevron got the gold mine and Fullerton gets the shaft ladies and gentlemen. Of course putting your life savings into a commodity with an expiration date isn’t bad enough, and then you take it one step further and put what has been salvaged into the hands of an elected judge who campaign was probably bankrolled by the same players the players on the council play with.
Man alive folks, you sit back and let the pied piper walk this whole thing right off the cliff while you all wait for the sun to come out at 3 am and elect the same leaders or their con men that put us here.
Fullerton, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me three times and you deserve all the shame you can handle. You elect Whitaker or Fitzgerald or anyone they are paired up with or endorse and I will tell you that you will get the leaders you deserve.
Someone better get this bull by the horns before Curt Pringle sicks Jennifer Fitzgerald on them there hills and puts in high rise housing all the way to the County Line or before Shawn Neslon sicks Whitaker on them there hills to build the largest homeless shelter west of the Mississippi.
I don’t know what else to say since the shaft just got deeper and it will get much deeper for all of us because of those of you who keep sending the same corrupt leaders and their caddies back to dais every four years. Ladies and gentlemen don’t blame me because I tried to warn you. You still have a choice.
Fullerton City Council Candidates & Agenda 21
Agenda 21 is a three-decade old, grand plan for global ’Sustainable Development,’ brought to you from the United Nations.
At risk from Agenda 21:
•Private Property ownership
•Private car ownership and individual travel choices
•Privately owned farms
The Agenda 21/regionalism plan openly targets private property. For over thirty-five years the UN has made their stance very clear on the issue of individuals owning land:
Land… cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.

Two Means of Agenda 21 Implementation in Fullerton
SCAG (So. California Assoc. of Governments) — This organization contains the writings of known socialist,
Brundtland, all throughout their reports and philosophies.
APA (American Planning Association) — This organizations’ entire curriculum, programs, and procedures
are taken straight from the U.N.
Fullerton City Council Candidates 2016
Jennifer Fitzgerald – incumbent, has consistently voted for the out-of-control development that has created more traffic congestion on deteriorating streets making Fullerton unlivable, voted to appoint AGENDA 21 OPERATIVE, SCAG employee Ma’Ayn Johnson to Fullerton Planning Commission. Ms. Fitzgerald is an employee of Curt Pringle & Associates, SCAG is their client.
Larry Bennett — endorsed and appointed to Fullerton Planning Commission by Jennifer Fitzgerald. Larry ignores the problem with the AGENDA 21 OPERATIVE Ma’ Ayan Johnson on the planning commission as he sits there and ignores my requests for her to resign.
Bruce Whitaker — incumbent, voted to appoint AGENDA 21 OPERATIVE SCAG employee Ma’Ayn Johnson as one of his “top choices” to Fullerton Planning Commission, voted to appoint Jennifer Fitzgerald as Fullerton Mayor, has consistently stood by while out-of-control development continues as he called off his appointee to the planning commission during the vote on the DCCSP and ignores my repeated requests to have Ma’Ayn Johnson removed from the planning commission.
Are you tired of appealing to appointed and elected officials that will not listen? I am.
Vote These Agenda 21 operatives Out.
Here are the rest of the candidates who have done nothing but dodge the issue and circle the wagons around the guilty.
Supports high density housing and is totally clueless and COMPLETELY SILENT ON AGENDA 21 for his entire life
Throws progressive buzzwords around like corn seeds on an Iowa farm in the springtime, says a lot that means almost nothing, is for sustainable development and is for Agenda 21. He is the Agenda 21 plant in this race.
Are you tired of appealing to candidates that are either clueless, cowards or even worse?
Do note Vote for candidates who are silent, clueless or worse when it comes to Agenda 21.
A proven fighter against Agenda 21 on all fronts
Google Joe Imbriano Agenda 21 and you will see thousands of entries.
I have repeatedly fought Agenda 21 for years at the council meetings and school board meetings as all of these council members and candidates have and continue to ignore it all-THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!
I need your vote. The only way to get me elected is to vote for one candidate and not three. It makes the vote count as three votes.
Joe Imbriano is the only No on Agenda 21 candidate!
It takes money and votes to kick and keep these people out.
WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.
The Fullerton Infomer website documents a long train of
Watch what goes on here when the long-time Fullerton Parks and Recreation commissioner Mr. Barry Levinson tries to expose a $5,000,000 shortfall to the taxpayers on a bad contract with American Golf. Well they all, including council candidate Jesus Silva, ignored it all. In my opinion, he has no business on the council based on his past and present conduct as a park and rec commissioner.
It is disgusting how Mr. Levinson is treated by Karen Lang McNabb. Ladies and gentlemen, these people are covering up a massive amount of lost revenue to the city that could be so properly utilized in our city.
Just minutes into this video reveal some real insight into the Fitzgerald apparatus at work. It comes at around the 3 minute and 10 second mark where Gretchen Cox, the Fitzgerald appointee and sycophant appears to engage in a little santoria while chomping on her time release aspartame chew up on the dais taking pleasure in shutting down the only one on the commission doing their job fighting for the taxpayers. This smug attitude towards those exposing corruption is typical with Fitzgerald and her operatives. That is why we need to throw Fitzgerald out.
Jesus Silva, who had repeatedly been exposed to this information at subsequent meetings and in written notice, abstained from a vote to shut Barry down. That amounts to aiding and abetting those hiding this massive 5 million dollar cover up. Shame on Jesus Silva who is nothing more than a coward and another political operative in my opinion.
Ladies and gentlemen, this issue is still being buried by the entire City Council as well-ALL OF THEM. Even Bruce Whitaker, who appointed Barry Levinson refused to even respond to his own appointee in writing on this issue. Bruce Whitaker eventually fired Barry Levinson from his position on the Park and Rec commission. That is what Barry gets for doing his job, Shame on Bruce Whitaker who is nothing more than a coward and another political operative in my opinion.
What does that tell you about our city government? It tells me that change is in the air.November is right around the corner, just like my campaign signs ladies and gentlemen, Help me throw these people out on election day. Vote for Joe Imbriano 4 Fullerton City Council
The battle is far from over regarding this property. The 8-9-16 Register article only shows that this article I wrote below that blew the lid off of this dirty deal has swayed the owners into perhaps doing what is right for the community instead of ruining Raymond Hills. We must keep the pressure on. The Fullerton Observer to this day tries so desperately to discredit myself, disparage Mr. Levinson, hide the truth from Fullerton residents and protect the establishment. Shame on Sharon Kennedy. Looks like Sharon has chicken little’s pie all over her face on this one. The Register confirmed what Mayor Fitzgerald lied to all of Fullerton about on camera while Sharon Kennedy tried to turn my expose on this dirty city hall backroom deal into a smear job- Barry and I were right and Joe Imbriano is running for City Council. Fitzgerald needs to pack her bags.
Build it and they will come ladies and gentlemen and believe they will come. Low income housing is headed to Raymond Hills. Mayor Fitzgerald says development plans don’t exist for this location but yet a public hearing regarding rezoning this location to do just that made the paper.
PART II: IF THIS DOES NOT OPEN YOUR EYES TO THE GAMES BEING PLAYED BY BRUCE WHITAKER AND JENNIFER FITZGERALD AND THE REST OF THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL, PROBABLY NOTHING EVER WILL. By Barry Levinson
As I explained in detail in part one, there is a pattern at City Hall to hide vital information concerning agenda items that come before the Fullerton City Council. Many, if not most
Ladies and gentlemen, for years Sharon Kennedy has mischaracterized my statements and continues to refuse to print any of my public comments at the hundreds of city council and school board meetings over the years.
Bruce Whitaker shamefully and cowardly removed Barry Levinson from his long term position on the Fullerton Parks and Recreation Commission without any formal written notice and without any reason given. Bruce has shown his hand and I believe Dan Hughes once again has too. Was Bruce in on this possible set up of Levinson gone bad with the FPD? Who knows but one thing is for sure, the way Bruce Whitaker handled this issue certainly provided an opportunity for a game of FPD “gotcha” that almost played out when no one was looking on a Monday night while everyone was home watching the ball game.
PLANNING COMMISSIONER LARRY BENNETT, APPOINTED BY MAYOR JENNIFER FITZGERALD HAS A REAL PROBLEM WITH CITIZEN INVOLVEMENT IN OUR CITY GOVERNMENT.
COMMENTARY BY BARRY LEVINSON
Larry continues to dig a deeper and deeper hole for himself with his arrogant and contemptuous comments toward the good citizens of Fullerton. He in particular called out the online site called NextDoor, which is a site dedicated to connecting people in the same or adjoining neighborhoods.
Yes another 1000 people are going to be crammed right on top of the old chevy dealer.
We all know that Bruce Whitaker’s planning commissioner appointee Kevin Pendergraft endorsed Jennifer Fitzgerald in 2012. http://www.smartvoter.org/2012/11/06/ca/or/vote/fitzgerald_j/endorse.html
