What can be done to initaite a recall election? Mostly concerning Milne and Youssef? Throw Smith in there, as well. Krupa is just playing ball, as she is forced to.

Krupa is a bit "wiggly" at times, but I think she has some clue...

The 3 Petty/Stone plants...enough said.

Wright is THE ONLY one on council with any "fresh" ideas, and a true caring for Hemet.

If Krupa and Wright could get together, and Hemet can get at least ONE Petty/Stone plant kicked out, Hemet might just have a chance of surviving another 100 plus years, WITH in-house Fire and Police still in force. Both departments have served for 100 PLUS years...there is no reason to think that they cannot continue to provide EXCELLENT service for another hundred years.

Or, Hemet could follow the tea-party council members, who advocate for zero unions. All the while supporting an agenda to bring in County and State unions, who are WAY larger and more powerful than Hemet's small unions.

Did I mention "direct" negotiations with small local "unions", versus a larger County or State Union telling you "this increased price is what you will pay to maintain current service levels, and if you cannot pay, services will be reduced."?

That's the way it goes, and has gone, over and over again, with all cities who have contracted with CalFire and/or RSO.

The first "hit" seems like a great deal, then, once they have you hooked, the price goes UP!

There is just about ZERO possibility of re-equipping and re-starting a PD or FD, so the County or State has you by the short hairs.

Just telling things as I see them...
