Mark Orme is doing a great job, and is happy with his well-deserved assignment. There is NO reason to replace him with a highly-paid "transplant", who may or may not have been FIRED from his previous "manager" position. Unless some soon-to-be "new" council member has some kind of agenda in mind...

Hmmm...

I predict LOTS of 3-2 votes coming soon.

Sadly, not in Hemet's best interests. And regardless of citizen's opinions.

I hope you get my drift...

We shall see...

If this council dosen't make Mark Orme the City Manager we need to call for a recall on , Yousheff,Menilne and Smith. Why do or would you want an outsider running our city we have enough problems NOW. You just elected an outsider that doesn't have a clue what is going on just waht she has been told by someone who paid the way. We as citizens of this CITY need to VOTE for WHO WE want as our CITY Manager and not let (5) five people pick who they want. Mark Orme has been loyal to this city and its residents, citizens of stand up for your rights! Two COUNCILS back THEY got rid of a City Manager because a council member wanted his so called friend put in place he wouldn't he laft then they bought in Nacanumour city went down hill. Mark is doing a very fine job working with all city departments, citizens. Let me ask you the question how many CITY MANAGERS has anyone seen out getting dirty with the rest of the people? I haven't seen one! This council wants to do a evaluation on his job preformation, HOW could they even think of when two members haven't even worked with him ever. If they bring in this outsider as City Manager CITIZENS of HEMET be ware WE are going to lose they will contract out all of your services that you have and won't have any say, don't expect to get things repaired, they will be bidding out all services. Why do you thing Cal Fire had such a big entry in the Christmas parade so of strength not what to say what it will cost us. Who has CRR for trash service did you get cost increase just like you were told one year up goes the bill!

EVERYONE with a TRUE interest in Hemet's future needs to attend the council meeting 12/11/12. 7 p.m., council chambers.

Be there, if you care.

Seems to me that CR&R "sponsored" Hemet's State of the City address a couple of years ago. Then, CR&R took over Hemet's OWN PROFITABLE refuse dept.(Profitable before the "takeover" to the tune of 7-9 million per year. All to benefit Hemet's General Fund.)

Oh, nevermind where the "equipment replacement fund" went...and the promise to "re-pay" those funds.

Now CalFire has run a "big entry" in the Christmas Parade. That figures in nicely.

What's next? RSO "sponsoring" a Fourth of July parade?

How far will this go?

I like how the city clerk is married to the thief and corrupt businessman from Pierot's Towing.

The whole valley is full of corruption.

It's going ALL the way down the toilet.

The majority of the city council is playing in the pig dung and most of the citizens are sitting in the stands gleefully watching.

How do you know when Robert Youssef is lying?

You all know the answer.

I was wondering since Temecula fired their City Manager and this Bradley guy worked there and he is supposed to be great why doesn't Temecula hire him back. Does everyone know he worked in Murrieta for 25K a month. Does everyone know he lives in Arizona? Does everyone wonder what Jeff Stone priomised the council if they hire him. People in Hemet need to step up and get rid of the council. I will make a prediction. Lots of people will come to the council meeting scream at the council and then the council will flip them the bird and do what Jeff Stone wants. Understand this council does not represent us.

I think Ron Bradley is one of those guys on the short list of former city managers who can roll into town, only work for six months or less, and roll out of town with an armored truck full of cash for doing virtually nothing. And all the while, still collect his fat monthly pension check.

I hear Dandy-Andy Hall is also on that list.
