I’ve got two points.
First, the landscaping problem around the city. Once again the City Council screwed up. Remember the old City Manager Kevin O’Rourke? He wanted to “save money” so he phased out the landscaping department in public works and the city contracted out the work. The City Council OK’d his asinine plan. Well, how did that work out for us?
He is gone and we probably have tens of thousands of dollars of repairable costs. I don’t ever remember any problems when the city employees did the work. Well, I guess that new tax money will come in handy, eh?
Second, why do Solano County and city councils oppose the marijuana law that is on the books? Are they stupid or what? Don’t say that the crime rate will skyrocket or that you don’t have the manpower to handle a few calls. You people can’t even handle your own local calls. I have been to the dispensary and it is well-run with no “lowlifes” hanging around. Look around the other counties and even the states. Complete legal marijuana is coming. If it takes voting out a few bigots . . . so be it.
Reverting to “threats” by Vacaville Councilman Curtis Hunt is just plain wrong. That “little man” attitude has got to stop. Sure you can scare the older folks that eat up your garbage, but the younger generation will be heard. Of course we have our own problems with a retired “bully” cop on our City Council.
Chew on that for a while, my friends.
