Let’s Take A Closer Look At The Friends For Fullerton’s Future Website Part II. By Barry Levinson


Barry Levinson

In my opinion, it is very clear that the FFFF blog exists for one and only one purpose.    It was to help ensure that Tony Bushala made millions off of his Fullerton commercial properties.   The easiest way to make that happen was for the city to come up with a way to get all major high-rise, high-density buildings virtually approved in advanced throughout all the major roads within the city.   That vehicle was the Downtown Core and Corridor Special Plan (DCCSP). For the key to the DCCSP was to allow the City Manager who at that time was none other than Joe Felz total approval authority for all DCCSP projects.

Step One is that Bushala does everything in his power to get his people elected to the Fullerton City Council.   That explains in my opinion his support for Bruce Whitaker, Greg Sebourn and Travis Kiger.  Then he abruptly shuts down the FFFF shortly after the 2012 election.  His Tony’s Phonies helps him to continue to lead an effort to misdirect the public with other issues while remaining quiet about the DCCSP.

Kiger, Whitaker, Sebourn, and Fitzpringle are Tony’s tools 



Tony’s Phonies were very active in their opposition against College Town but the much bigger nightmare, which would have been the DCCSP they were eerily quiet about.  On the surface that dichotomy makes no sense at all.   But I believe the answer is very simple Fullertonians.

Tony Bushala was primed to make millions if DCCSP passed but I believe he had little or no financial interest in College Town.   Therefore Tony’s Phonies spoke out against College Town often but were quiet as a church mouse as it related to the DCCSP, which would have created high-rise nightmares off all major roads within Fullerton with only Joe Felz, the city manager an unelected bureaucrat needed to approve all of the projects.  If the DCCSP passed, there would be No Planning Commission recommendation needed, there would be No City Council vote needed for these very many projects but most importantly the people of Fullerton would have absolutely no say in any of these many major developments in our city going forward.

The crony, phony money would have flowed into city coffers and into the pockets of special interest developers and property owners such as Tony Bushala, all at the great expense of the quality of life for existing Fullerton citizens.  All they needed was the one-time passage of the DCCSP.   The biggest boondoggle ever created by our Fullerton City Government in its entire history.

Bushala spent hundreds of thousands of dollars for the recall so he could buy the council majority


Now you have a good idea why the FFFF, the City Council and those consultants representing developers hate me so very much.  For the time being at least, I spoiled their multi-million dollar scheme for both the developers and the city via the Park and Recreation Dwelling Fees for the tune of $11,700 for building each and every residential unit regardless of their size.   This is one of the major reasons why the city has been pushing so darn hard for high-rise high-density development.

In Fullerton Government all you have to do to understand the machinations of the power players is to…FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Once you do follow the money you realize like I have that nobody on the city council, nor their puppeteers have clean hands.

I report, you decide!

    Bushala exposed for real. Nice work Barry. Everyone knows he was never in this for the good of the community. Nobody spends a half a million dollars on elections because they care, especially him. It was an investment, and, as it turned out to be, it ended up not being a very good one.

    Whitaker never wanted you on any audit committee because he is part of the problem. Bushala worked against you because he could never control you. Thompson has issues with you because he has his own issues and is Tony’s attack dog. You are doing good work. Keep it up.

    I wonder how Bruce survives on 900 a month? Is he on Tony’s payroll?

      Whitaker is Tony Bushala’s chattel property bought and paid for with tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions, mailers, and campaign signs. What does that make Travis who works for pennies on the dollar compared to Bruce? How about his attack dog Chris Thompson? He is to Tonys Bushala as Pam Keller is to the FPOA.

    Whitaker is always calling for an Audit Committee, while at the same time ignoring problems brought to him by his own former appointee Barry Levinson. (remember the 4 to 5 million dollar Fullerton Golf Course problem…I do).

    Let’s call for an audit on all sources of income for every council member.

      People are starting to put the pieces together because the truth is now being exposed about the plan that was foiled to turn this place into a high rise hell hole.

    Step 3 is for you to shut your big fat mouth.

    I guess anonymous is hearing voices since I am providing detailed WRITTEN analysis and facts on this website.

    Bushalas operatives know the Alinsky tactics all too well.

    looks like whitaker is running for newman’s seat. do you think tony is paying for his campaign? if he than why is ferguson running? makes no sense unless ferguson is not on the team anymore which would make sense since they didn’t announce his campaign like they did whitaker’s and he hasn’t posted much lately.

    follow the money.
