i would like to know where our present council reside. i think the mayor is the only one east of i-80, in hiddenbrooke? i would vote for district representation if it came to ballot. i think it would disarm special interest money buying council seats, that's another topic as well, limiting contributions with a voluntary non-binding pledge or similar. i read where benicia has one, we should as well, imo.

I want to say that I am all for district representation for city council members. It will make them more accountable to their constituents needs.

I'm also running my campaign this time on out of pocket money only. I will not accept ANY donations.
If I am elected I will not take any salary either. I am here to serve the citizens of Vallejo for free!

I guarantee you no on else will do any of this.

I'm all for seats by district, they should start talking about how to define a district boundary and get 'er done. Ever since the last election when certain members wanted to put a sign on my lawn, we rarely are able to get information about what the heck is going on over here in the name of economic progress. I understand the movie studio deal flopped, now what?

I think you should put an ad in the TH a couple days before the election reinforcing your pledge, vision planks, and reminding people your signs are not littering the city as is often the case during and after an election. By the way SFGMC promoters, recover your signs!

What do you think about representation by district? Extreme North, South, and East Vallejo at present have little to no voice in city matters.

You have to show up to be heard.

Its Kim White,(male and close friend of Marc Garman's) not Tim White. I doubt that its him though.
White is well educated and articulate. Irish Mike/fake Samuel Kurshan is an illiterate slob who can't spell or punctuate properly.

Agree. "Irish Mike" and the others in the cast of clowns are dullards. It will surprise many to find out that Sam Kurshan is actually very intelligent. Yes, he is out spoken to his personal detriment but listen to his responses when he addresses specific issues in the candidate debates. There is some there, there.

it clear his detractors are voting all the no's here. he does have good ideas, they will look like fools trying to make him look bad. i remember the last time at the empress that jerk moderator vib loyalist asked him about his arrest record, he responded eloquently and got a round of applause from the audience. it made the moderator look like an ass for even asking the question i thought. i look forward to the forums this time when schivley will have to respond to the bankruptcy failure questions. remember the time she wanted to make it clear she did not push for it? sad, really sad. i hope she remembers to show up, i read her deposition and it seems she has memory problems, you know what i'm sayin'?, lol.

Freak Fest Schlubby has been a busy beaver with all his aliases tonight. He's been so busy because he is avoiding several important facts:

1. He's a liar. He's been arrested more than once.

2. He's a loser. He's about an useful to Wounded Ego and gang as a three day old used condom. Dropped you like a hot potato tonight, didn't he Schlubby?

3. He doesn't know how anything works and what's worse, his arrogance in his ignorance will insure he'll never learn, ergo he will fail at every thing he does.

4. No wild life allowed in council chambers. Wasn't that you bellowing like a sea lion tonight Schlubby?

Now schlub along Spammy.

Now why corrupt Wounded Knee's name? He was only true to his belief's. This is typical of the ground level comments often left standing by Mr. Garman at VIB the intelligent discourse site. That's the problem a lot of people have with him, he professes something, then does not practice it.
I applaud Mr. Kurshan's courage here, I agree the situation was similar to treason and will not forget who brought this all on.

Sammie has called called people all types of vile names . But all we have heard is the sound of the crickets from you.

Sam is not courageous he has severe anger management issues and doesn't understand boundaries. He flips out and goes after anyone he thinks wronged him.

Maybe you can get Sam to answer the question of how many times he has been arrested in his life time. I mean since you think that he has courage, he may answer the question if you ask him. He says he's a man of honesty and integrity but he won't answer the question.

There has never been proper or true representation on past or present City Councils from the outer areas of Vallejo, like candidates who live in East Vallejo or South Vallejo or Rancho Vallejo or Country Club Crest. There has been too much focus and concentration on issues tied into downtown and the waterfront, when other areas of town has been ignored or neglected. It's time for radical change. District representation and even-year election cycle must be on the City Council agenda.

there is not a single council member who lives downtown, in the heritage district, st. vincent's hill or washington park (the neighborhoods closest to downtown)
