See what past mismanagement has done to the citizens. They've become very distrusting based on the action of the former City Manager, current Assistant Manager and Mayor. Just give this new man a chance and see if he can clean things up. We owe him that chance. If he folds, then we can complain. Okay?

Is he and the other city employees making over $200,000 going to take a 15% paycut along with the furlow days other city employees are being forced to take?

Four years full pay huh?? What are you drinking?? My employment contract was the same as every other executive at Colton ... you get 4 months severance plus one month for every year of service. So, since I worked 3.75 years, I received an additional 3.75 months of severance. That totals 7.75 months.

I hope the people of Fontana know that their mayor doesn't do anything but argue with losers on the internet. His city has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation. Shouldn't he concentrate his efforts on the recovery of Fontana's economy? What is he doing living in Diamond Bar and also working in Colton? Whose interests are at heart? Even the 7.75 months severance pay that he claims is outrageous! More like 7.75 years! Crooks are always liars! Just another crook! Hopefully the great people of Fontana will wake up and choose not to elect him come next November.

Talk to ya soon,

Go Diego Go!

Not only do we have major foreclosure problems, but look at all our crime, every fontana post is about serious crimes, it's terrible! The Mayor never takes the blame when things go wrong but he's the first one to grab the credit for any development. I don't think you'll have to worry about Mr. Nuaimi winning next November, word is Warren and Rutherford are already fed up with his antics and Roberts is about ready to join with them. Mayor Nuaimi lost a lot of respect when he went to the other concilmembers and asked if they would appoint his wife as mayor of Fontana if he became city manager in colton.

Hahahahahaha! Appoint my wife if I became the City Manager of Colton. Nice urban legend that started on these idiotic blogs. As I shared at the City Council meeting when I first heard that nonsense, my wife is a kindergarten teacher and deals with enough 5 year olds every day that she doesn't need politics as well. So have in Fantasy Land and I'll be happy to defend my record in Fontana any day.

Guess you haven't been paying attention to what's been going on with Rocket Man's former employer (interesting time line happening there btw-yet to be named suspects-most of the alleged corruption taking place prior to Nov.2009, etc.)

Hey John, I'll ask again, are you on the CPOA payroll these days or are you still being paid by Former Mayor Chastain to put nonsense like this on the blogs? Why don't you get concerned about the corruption and waste right here in our town before Foster came to Colton? Oh that's right, you got paid to support those that were involved. Time to grow up and get a real job.
BTW... do you have a City of Colton business license?

Geez John, that is the type of comment that a continuation school student would make out on the playground. Grow up.

BTW... Did you report the $300 you received from Chastain on your income taxes?

Actually you are John... you just haven't realized it yet. Ironic comment about smoking dope coming from a Rastafarian... wouldn't you agree?

All I know is you made a big mess here in Colton and then jump a sinking ship. Everything you touch you screwed up I think they call you the conflict king.
