IF YOU WANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AND SLEEP LIKE A BABY AT NIGHT YOU MUST PUT THE TRUTH FIRST.

THE TRUTH

IT IS WHAT I TRULY BELIEVE IN. WELL IN THE CASE OF STATE SENATOR CANDIDATE JOSHUA FERGUSON’S RESPONSE UNDER THE FFFF ARTICLE “THE WHITAKER RECORD” HE TOLD THE TRUTH. I BELIEVE ALL PEOPLE SHOULD GET CREDIT FOR THEIR TRUTHFUL STATEMENTS MADE ON THE RECORD. HERE ARE HIS COMMENTS, WHICH I TOTALLY AGREE WITH.

“Okay, I’ll bite.

You’re mad because you can’t get a good wine so what do you do?

Apparently you sit on the sidelines and complain that you can’t get good wine as it gets worse and worse each year. I’d rather try and make wine. That’s EXACTLY why Napa is world renowned for wine. Delusional people set out to make a change.

You can consider me delusional all you want but I’d rather be delusional than a defeatist.

I would have never thrown my name in and would have eagerly supported Whitaker if I thought he’d fight. But he won’t and he hasn’t.

We have serious allegations of police misconduct & obstruction of justice in the Felz case alone. Whitaker is Mayor. What has he done to get to the bottom of it?

Be precise about the actions in this case. I’ll award bonus points for source citations.

As a reminder the former police chief allegedly obstructed justice on his way out of the door. The DA allegedly ignored it owing to political favors.

Do we need to put a ribbon on the tee before the bat is swung? We can’t swing it for the council. The whole council is complicit in this corruption but the Mayor has the power to put things on the Agenda. He doesn’t.  I see a new higher paid chief from a problematic department. That’s it.  Where’s the oversight? Reform? Investigation? Anything?

Oh I know. Despite the council being 3-2 (R) he doesn’t think he can accomplish anything so its better to do nothing.

Put it on record. Put reform and an investigation on the agenda and make the opposition take a pro-cover-up position. Make them make the pro-corruption vote. Do something. Be the voice you ran to be and fight for us and if you won’t don’t be surprised if allies get fed up and try to use their own voices you seem intent on ignoring.

Newman is being recalled because he lied to voters and opted to rob us blind. I’m not about to vote for somebody else who will sit silently owing to a minority position while we still get robbed.

I’ve had enough of (R)s who say they’d do the right thing if only they had power. Fight for the right thing or you’ll never get the chance.”

 

That concludes Mr. Ferguson’s remarks.  As I stated in my title of this article, I give people credit for telling the truth in a public forum.  Ferguson has been supportive of Mayor Bruce Whitaker and an ally in the past.   The fact that he was willing to look at Whitaker’s public performance to judge whether he is worthy of Ferguson’s support is admirable.   Two fellow conservatives Sean Paden and David Curlee, still in my opinion see Mayor Whitaker thru rose color glasses.

Click the photo to understand more about Bruce’s sycophant Paden.

Paden goes out of his way to support him no matter what the facts state.  Blind allegiance in politics is extremely dangerous.

The big question is whether I would vote for Ferguson.   There are a few issues that I would need to hear more from him on.   I have seen him in a few instances, in my humble opinion, put saving taxpayer dollars ahead of the overall benefit to the community.  I am a fiscal conservative and hate to see any taxpayer monies wasted but government has a role and sometimes monies need to be in fact spent for the benefit of the overall community.

In conclusion, my answer as of August 3, 2017 is that I would give his candidacy serious consideration.  It is early and we may not know the names of all candidates who will throw their hats into the ring.

But the bottom line, I appreciate very much Ferguson’s above comments concerning Bruce Whitaker and see it as his taking an independent second look at a former ally.  It takes a certain amount of courage to distance yourself from someone you used to support wholeheartedly.

Finally, as Ferguson said above…”Okay, I’ll bite.” `  I am glad he did.

Protecting Corruption, Malfeasance and Wrongdoing Was Once Again In Full View For Anyone Watching The June 6, 2017 Fullerton City Council!

The Scandal, Which Is The Hillcrest Stairs, Was Never Mentioned By Anyone On The Fullerton City Council Dais. The City Council has failed to take any action to get monetary damages from the contractor and designer of those stairs and has also failed to start an internal investigation as to who within the City of Fullerton approved that very shoddy and structurally substandard stairway.  Therefore we can thank Mayor Bruce Whitaker, Council members Greg Sebourn, Jennifer Fitzgerald, Doug Chaffee and Jesus Silva for another fine example of their total dereliction of duty as our duly elected city representatives.  For truly with elected representative like them, we don’t need any more enemies.  By Barry Levinson

Why won’t the council protect us? Why won’t the council act in our best interest?  Could it be that to expose the guilty would expose our council members as well? Joshua Ferguson gave a very good pictorial presentation of the numerous problems but has not asked that our City council take action against those responsible for the many problems with those very expensive stairs.

Joshua cozying up with Bruce Whitaker

Why? He actually spoke again at the June 6th meeting and did not once even refer to those stairs? What he did do was give the city council members another way to extend their ability to continue to not provide the citizens of Fullerton with its basic services from the General Fund.

Seaborn

Instead I would surmise working in tandem with Greg Sebourn and Bruce Whitaker,

Ferguson

Ferguson proposed diverting or siphoning off much need park dwelling fee monies away from the desperately needed expansion of greening up Fullerton with more parks. How is that a good idea?

Sebourn thinks its a good idea

The fact is the neglect of these parks has been covered up for years and now, right on cue Greg Sebourn made a motion to put just that on the agenda.

No explanation as to why for decades are city has not provided adequate funds from our general fund to do routine maintenance for our parks but willing to rob from Paul to give to Peter instead thereby not having to answer to the malfeasance of our city council for decades of neglect of our city parks. This is not acceptable considering Greg promised to do a top down audit of all city departments when he was elected in 2012.

Then there is the scandalous issue of those Hillcrest Park stairs to be received and filed in the dustbin of our city council.

 

CODE VIOLATIONS GALORE that should have resulted in a lawsuit and pink slips for the inspectors that signed off on them

 

Fitzgerald loves the shoddy workmanship

Well I heard directly from the mouth of our Appointed Mayor in a recent interview, Bruce Whitaker, who is no stranger to ignoring alleged malfeasance, who without hesitating to the interviewer’s question stated that he would seriously consider running for Josh Newman’s seat if the recall makes the ballot.

TAX AND SPEND DEMOCRAT NEWMAN

I have a loud and strong message for Bruce Whitaker. How about taking care of at least one of our many problems here in Fullerton before you seek higher office?

Whitaker

Because I find it ludicrous and very arrogant on your part to think that you deserve to be elected to higher office when you have accomplished literally nothing after 6.5 years as one of our council members. You have repeatedly cried to the public that you are only one man and therefore do not have the support to get things accomplished. Well here are some hard facts for Whitaker to swallow. The whole time you have been on the city council you have had a REPUBLICAN MAJORITY SIR!

6 YEARS OF FAILURE TO LEAD

In the State Senate the Democrats would outnumber you 2 to 1.  If you can’t persuade your fellow Republicans to get anything done having the majority on your side, how in the heck will you possibly get anything done in the State Senate?  I have given Fullertonians written detailed supportable example after example after example of how Whitaker has failed his conservative limited government base of support. The latest example is of Whitaker’s failure to take any concrete steps; pun intended to solve the obvious problem of Hillcrest Park steps! As I have pointed out before our Mayor is all talk and no action. In other words a typical slick phony politician out for only number one. I guess that means leaving no room for the good people of Fullerton.
