    What a way to again, weave the separation between church and state. It's becoming rather obvious who really runs Fairfield. The church has done nothing but provided more refuge to the criminal and homeless while trying to further expand their hateful agenda. I'm so sick of the, "born again", hug a thug, found god, Delusional, BS.

    Bertint is a Oakland transplant that has Oakland ideas and methods on how to handle Crime and Homeless issues, she and liberals like her will turn Fairfield into a mini Oakland.

    We the citizens of Fairfield collectively have the power to end homelessness in Fairfield.They park and camp all over the city. Maybe PD could patrol those areas and get them to move on. A by product of their exodus will be a reduction in crime. If you're serious stop giving, it will end very quickly. That means ignoring panhandlers, no dropping off clothing and necessary articles for the shelters and no donations. So go ahead, do it. Stop providing food and the means for shelter now, today.

    Once again Daily Republic and Amy Maginnis-Honey, PUT THE DATE, just don't say, " 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday" well what dang Saturday ??? August 9th Saturday? January 14th Saturday? What is with this Hiding as much info as possible for these forums? When you list a posting as this above take the time to make sure that you don't "ASSUME" everyone will know what Saturday you are talking about. The posting should have read as follows: Town Hall meeting from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, July 26, 2014 Is it that hard? You did the same thing this week by hiding the full date and true times for the Mayor’s Commission on Crime meeting held this week. Not only did you wait till the same day that the meeting went out, you also waited for the day that the paper is not even printed. Who is behind all this hidden behind doors and only letting a few know forums? Now as for Pam and her forum, lets get serious, she is trying to buy some time before she runs again for the county supervisors job, a job that pays money. keep in mind folks she does not work and she is the only council member that shows up to every event with a circus of staff helpers. why is that? Pam your a city council member not the secretary of state. Pam you ran for a seat in the Fairfield City Council , finish that job before you try and take on another position that you have no idea about. You have lost all respect from 98% of Fairfield showing that you can not even finish what you started. The only reason your trying to get the supervisors job is because of pay, you have no clue about anything in the county. we don't need people to run the county that only are there for a paycheck and we sure don't need anyone that thinks they are Beyoncé and has to have a crew of staff members taking pictures and fixing make up. Start walking the walk you say you can walk or get out of the way for people that will do what you say you think you can do.
