If citizens feel like they are getting a bang for their tax dollars and agree with city policies, then by all means vote for the slate endorsed by Ms. Watt.
But I am with Ms. Enman's recommendation, because this city encourages division as evidenced by recent creation of several civic organizations. A chairman that heralds "us vs them" not in his public comments but by his actions, after all he actually got a certain residential group to vote as a block under the seldom used bullet vote strategy. Thereby, exacerbating a division that could have been resolved without a costly cost of service study.
I have seen the chairman grimace, after certain comments made by the consultant, as he reviewed the assumptions and data, but were glossed over, i.e. reuse water cost of service evaluation which was NOT included, yet a rate established.
Pay attention, folks; the civic organizations especially recently organized civic organizations will come under attack by prominent members of council. These organizations will be portrayed by some on council as not acting in the best interest of the city. And will be portrayed as contributing to the division of "us vs them".
To them I say, these organizations reacted to a theme of "us vs them" implicitly laid out in years prior by pundits i.e. Mr. Arceri that claim the citizens are misinformed and institutionalized by Mr. Magel.
Really, MISINFORMED! Now that in itself should herald a rallying cry to reform this city. And to reform you must replace.
This is the time to vote, if you want excellence or at least the hope of a quality of life vision for residents to enjoy without the encumbrances of over sized public facilities or safety budgets that are transformed into gang related, felony pursuit programs to a fire boat to meet the needs of "us vs them", to a ROW standards that is geared to support an infrastructure which pits residents against the city, you need to support those who are willing to stand before prior councils to voice their concerns. And these candidates are seeking your support. Please support them, they are:
Mr. Amadeo PetriccaMr. Ken HoneckerMr. Larry Sacher
And their union is based on fiscal responsibility and open government. Is this really "us vs them"? If so, I am with them so they call leave us alone to enjoy a peaceful small tropical town atmosphere.
