Empty suit Bruce Whitaker and his 5 million dollar empty seat on the Parks and Rec Commission.


You will know a tree by its fruit ladies and gentlemen. The charade continues for four more years as Bruce Whitaker has successfully conned the residents of Fullerton in the last election. The political games he played recruiting vote splitting plants insured Fitzgerald’s re election and the continued demise of Fullerton. The facts speak for themselves about Bruce Whitaker and they are undeniable.

 

Well for now, let us deal with a very pressing issue that trumps the $300 hotel bills that Bruce’s sycophants keep bringing up. Lets not look at the elephant in the room but rather the ocean liner in the parking lot. Lets look at the Brea Dam issue and the contract with American Golf.

 

Barry Levinson was Bruce Whitaker’s appointee to the Fullerton Park and Recreation Commission for almost 5 years. Barry never missed a meeting, always asked good questions and took his volunteer position very seriously.

If you will remember Barry had hand delivered his detailed analysis of a 5 million dollar shortfall to the taxpayers with the Brea Dam -American Golf contract to the Park and Recreation Commissioners.

He also emailed and delivered these findings to the City Council, including the Council member who appointed him, Bruce Whitaker.

So what does Bruce Whitaker do? He ignores the information and then subsequently removes Barry Levinson from the Park and Recreation Commission back in May of 2016.

Ladies and gentlemen, the seat on the commission was not filled until 2 weeks ago. Since then, Fullerton taxpayers have lost almost $250,000 and Bruce Whitaker has left the position on the Park and Recreation Commission vacant. Can someone provide a reason for this?

I can. It is my opinion that Bruce Whitaker fired Barry Levinson to cover this up and has kept the seat on the commission empty to keep the issue from being raised. Bruce Whitaker has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about this ongoing fleecing of the taxpayers. Bruce has refused to respond to what Barry presented in writing and to this day REFUSES TO GIVE AN ANSWER AS TO WHY HE REMOVED BARRY FROM HIS POSITION. Bruce has not once agendized this issue, brought it up at council meetings or discussed this matter in any social media outlet. He has been and remains silent on the issue the was raised by HIS OWN APPOINTEE TO THE VERY COMMISSION whose purview it falls under. What does Bruce do? He fires his appointee and leaves the position unfilled for almost a year! I believe that Bruce is actively engaged in a cover up of a taxpayer ripoff  ladies and gentlemen and his behavior fully affirms this. 

What kind of fiscal conservative is Bruce Whitaker? Ladies and gentlemen, draw your own conclusions. My opinion is Bruce is a fraud.

What kind of fiscal conservative would ignore such a massive finding?

What kind of fiscal conservative would fire his own appointee to the commission who did his job better than all the rest of them combined?

What kind of taxpayers choice is Bruce Whitaker letting the multi million dollar taxpayer ripoff continue?

 

What kind of limited government advocate behaves like Bruce Whitaker? Just  like the lobbyist he voted to make mayor for the ballot.

 

What kind of advocate for open and transparent government is Bruce Whitaker?  He is just like one that these two phonies support.

 

What kind of reformer is Bruce Whitaker? The same kind as his supporter Shawn Nelson. This phony tried to put a hundred grand in real estate commissions into his pals pocket while trying to ram a homeless shelter in next to an elementary school. He and Bruce are well connected.

 

What kind of fiscal conservative Bruce Whitaker Ignoring a 5 million dollar taxpayer ripoff?

What kind of conservative?

The same kind that put an Agenda 21 SCAG senior planner on our planning commission while our traffic and roads rival that of Los Angeles.

What kind of conservative? One that spent over 30 minutes at the last council meeting splitting hairs over a $32,000 grant and spent less than a minute repealing the law that protected Fullerton children from sex offenders.

    Joe you left out his failure to fix a problem he himself made a big deal over recently. Bruce Whitaker stated that he was concerned that a recent agenda item had little or no documentation. The council was asked to vote on a grant application which was not yet completed.

    Mr. Levinson at the next meeting provided a simple and easy way to ensure that this practice of bringing items for a vote without proper documentation would end.
    He informed the council that the only thing needed to stop this undemocratic practice was for Whitaker or any other council member to make a motion that all future agenda items that have a deadline to act, must be brought before the council at least 2 council meetings before that deadline. This would allow all council members and members of the public in attendance to ask pertinent questions and demand any and all information lacking was provided to both the council and the public prior to voting. There could be no excuse by the council or members of the city government not to provide that information as part of the very next meeting. Problem solved.
    What was the reaction of Whitaker and the rest of the council….COMPLETE SILENCE!
    What do you call a council member who complains about a problem and has the opportunity to fix the problem and does absolutely nothing?
    A TOTAL AND COMPLETE FRAUD.

      Do you have a link to this? I would definitely be interested in watching this first hand.

    A elected representative of the people should always respond to issues and problems presented by their constituency. It is irrefutable that to remain silent indicates a willingness to bury the issue, while at the same time demonstrating total arrogance.
    Neither should be tolerated by an informed public.

    It seems so very simple. Joe and Barry have proven over and over again that we need the electorate to stop voting for candidates that are an impediment to that reform.

    Clearly, Mayor Bruce Whitaker and Council members Greg Sebourn and Jennifer Fitzgerald are the biggest problems for reform voting for special interest groups. Clearly all three are in the pockets of the developers. Sebourn had the audacity to support SCAG Agenda 21 proponent and employee Ma’Ayn Johnson to another term as a Fullerton Planning Committee member. Ms. Fitzgerald is bold enough to always side with the unions as well accepting the endorsement and money from the FPOA. She also gave each and every one of us the proverbial let me stick it to the Fullerton public when on election day no less led a Curt Pringle and Associates Seminar on how to get around citizen opposition for Agenda 21 style overdevelopment. Yet this so called lover of Fullerton, does not have the integrity to recuse herself on votes for high rise and high density development in our city. I truly pray for her soul, which I am assuming she has, which I know in and of itself is a huge leap of faith. Please do not forget that she put in a good word for Mr. Andy Dick after he called all people with autism, retards.

    Barry never missed a meeting? That is a blatant LIE! I’m sure that even he would admit that he missed Parks & Rec meetings.

      Fullertonian I do not remember missing any meetings over the 5 plus years I served on the Park and Recreation Committee. The important point here is that I took my position on the Park and Recreation Committee very seriously and always did my best for the people of Fullerton.

    He is on his way out

    What in the world did Whitaker do at the last meeting with the district map election schedule? Why did he do that?

    • #9 by Anonymous on March 11, 2017 - 8:31 pm

      To make sure Barry or Joe have to wait until 2020 to run again. Bruce is protecting Greg.

    Bruce is a very calculating political animal. He has not held a job in the private sector for well over 15 years. His wife has remained unemployed for decades. You cannot trust someone that is fully dependent financially on his political position.

    • #11 by Benjamin on March 23, 2017 - 5:51 pm

      I saw you guys at the last meeting and I would be glad to help you out. Bruce has town meetings once a month. Why don’t you go and embarrass his sorry arse in front of all the people? This guy is just as bad as Greg. I used to think you two were just sour grapes but this guy is bad news. These roads are so bad and nothing is getting done about it. I just keep seeing huge apartment buildings going in and traffic that is just awful. Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse, it does!

      • #12 by Barry Levinson on March 25, 2017 - 5:59 pm

        Benjamin you are so right. I only deal with facts and holding all of our local politicians accountable.

        Mayor Whitaker has spent most if not all of his political career trying to prove to the public that he something he is not in my humble opinion.

        His town meetings are pure public relations. Six plus years on the council and he has accomplished absolutely nothing of value for the people of Fullerton unless you count fireworks as a crowning achievement. What has he received from the taxpayers of Fullerton? Plenty… over 60K in salary and benefits and additional monies being paid to sit on various boards for the city, such as the Water Board.

    Bruce Whitaker is the worst kind of corrupt politician. He is one who fools much of the public by acting like he cares and that he is one of us. That unfortunately is the furthest thing from the truth. I will now list all of Bruce Whitaker’s accomplishments over the last 6 plus years sitting on the city council.

    I knew Bruce Whitaker years ago when he worked in the private sector. He is STILL in a bad way financially and is desperate to cling to his only source of income-sucking off the taxpayers as a professional politician.

  10. #15 by Anonymous on March 22, 2017 - 1:23 pm

    Clearly, Bruce Whitaker is not what he pretends to be and that is a dirty rotten shame.

    Barry lay off the guy. Why is it so personal with you?

    • #17 by Barry Levinson on March 25, 2017 - 2:50 am

      I will lay off the guy when he starts doing his job and stops ignoring real problems such as the 4 to 5 million dollar loss in revenue over 20 years starting in 2010 that I uncovered as his appointee to the Park and Recreation Committee in early 2016. He never would speak to me on this subject. That is simply unacceptable and reprehensible conduct by Mayor Whitaker. A total dereliction of his fiduciary responsibility. That is anything but personal.

      A lot of streets could be repaved with that lost revenue!

      Also when he stops repealing good laws based on faulty information such as Ordinance No 3149, the Convicted Pedophile Residency Restriction Law It has not been found unconstitutional by any Ca. court. Mayor Whitaker would not listen to the specific proof I provided to him and the other council members. He ignores the facts and votes to repeal it anyway.

      He needs to be removed from office.

    Mayor Bruce Whitaker has much to answer for. Those that still believe in him are either deaf, dumb or blind when it comes to the many actions by this year’s Mayor.

    Some people have a lot invested in their choice for council member. They would rather continue to think they are right than accept the truth about their representative. This is the case for Mayor Whitaker. But Bruce Whitaker’s continued failure to live up to his PR press clippings have become too aggregious for many of his past supporters to ignore.

    I do know one thing for sure and that is that Bruce Whitaker has inflicted too many self-inflicted wounds to ever hope to attain any higher elected office.
