"Barry: Many have not even read the term limits proposition to see what it says.  Currently, there are no term limits so someone could serve forever as long as they get re-elected which as an incumbent is not hard to do. Our proposal would…"

"If the people vote yes, then they want it.  If they vote no, then they don't.   It is that simple.  At least they get the chance to vote on it.  I guess anytime anyone puts something on the ballot from an initiative process…"

"How restrictive is this really?  Someone could potentially serve 24 out of 28 years!!!!!!  Is that not enough for you???  Ok then they could potentially serve 36 out of 44 years.  Having to take four years off will not do any…"

"Don   The 22nd amendment to the us constitution applies term limits to the president - so we stand by the constitution because it imposes term limits on the most important elected office "

"The constitution doesn't prevent us from imposing term limits either.  I stand by the Constitution to vote on such matters. As for Lisa,  the blog was about term limits.  The discussion for why term limits whether La Mesa or not…"

"If Barry Jantz or Jay La Seur, Dave Allan or Ernie Ewin in his first run had not voluntarily stepped down, Dr. A and any other new councilmenber including Kristine Allesio would not be in office.  Did Ernie Ewin beat an incumbent in his second…"

"Wrong!  If Ernie Ewin ran again, that's an automatic win as an incumbent.  If Mark A decided not to run for Mayor and run again for his seat, automatic win due to name recognition regardless of well he did or didn't do as a…"

"Take your head out of the sand Don.  Pension costs will only get worse in the future and there is no way we are going to be able to pay for them without another tax increase and even that may not cover it.  Do some research and find out…"

"Hey Susan.   If politicians get elected year after year, they are doing something right?  I guess that explains the 15% or less approval rating for Congress.  Doing such a crappy job, we keep electing them.  Can you name five…"

Fair Trade Go Away, Don't Come Back Another Day

Posted on September 13, 2012 at 12:26am 1 Comment

The Fair Trade folks Nancy Ryan and Anne Pacheco are at it again trying to lobby the City Council to have the city of La Mesa labeled as a "Fair Trade" city after getting shot down once. Why don't you people just concentrate your efforts on getting more stores to carry fair trades products and leave the City out of this.  Your doctrine on your website and all your literature might indicate your cause is one of a religious zealot and maybe you are.  Stop trying to convert the world by…

HWD Board puts screws to rate payers again

Posted on July 30, 2012 at 10:30pm 3 Comments

One week after HWD General Manager Carlos Lugo stood before the La Mesa City Council professing how the HWD has done all things right about reducing costs in an attempt to keep water rates from increasing even further, the back room deals are back.

 The HWD Board, General Manager and Employees have conspired to bypass the regular process of re-negotiating the MOU which wasn’t up until 2013   In exchange, the rate payers get to watch the payroll costs continue to balloon out of…

Great op ed piece by Wayne Root:

How did America become broke and insolvent? How did we build up an unimaginable $115 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities? How did we allow the American Dream to become a nightmare?

All we need do is look at the primary demand the Eurozone and…

Smyle: Local Leaders and Elected Officials A No Show on the Helix Water Increase

Posted on July 14, 2011 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

Only a week away from the "Town Hall" public meeting on July 21st from 6-7:30 at the community center about the proposed Helix Water rate increase and our current elected officials and candidates for the upcoming City Council elections are mysteriously silent about the issue.  One would expect our City Council to take a position on the matter like Lemon Grove does and either support or oppose the increase publicly since they are the second or third largest water user in the District but…
