In light of Joanne Schively's decision to seek another City Council term, I will publicly state that when it comes to her believing that the police and fire fighters are paid too much and that she is interested in reducing the City's expenditures that Joanne is a fraud.

Joanne voted to approve the PSU contracts that were later said to be the cause of Vallejo's bankruptcy and didn't flinch once while doing so.

For many years Joanne Schively was friends with and took money for her past campaigns from the Vallejo Public Safety Unions and their former heads Kurt Henke,Jon Riley and Steve Gordon. Everything was rosy between them until Joanne decided to run for Mayor, but the PSU's decided they wanted someone else to run for Mayor and subsequently decided not to give Joanne any money to use for what was to be her Mayoral campaign.

Well, this enraged Joanne so much that the entire friendly relationship between her and Henke, Riley and Gordon, completely disintegrated and ultimately Joanne ended up in a law suit with Kurt, where she testified under oath and on the record that because of this she "declared war" on them.

Joanne couldn't run for Mayor with out the PSU's money and political endorsements so Gary Cloutier ran for Mayor. Well you know how that all panned out.

But perhaps you were not aware that around the same time, Joanne's campaign manager, Doug Keener, met with a handful of Vallejo attorneys and they decided to launch a smear campaign and wage Joanne's war against the PSU's.

Part of this war was the formation of the website VIB, aka Vallejo is Burning. This task was given to Marc Garman.

VIB's sole purpose to this very day is to scapegoat, discredit, embarrass and smear the PSU's and their union leadership.

Henke, Riley and Gordon appeared on VIB regularly, in drawings depicting them as pigs. Intentionally misrepresented figures claiming to be the over inflated salaries of the police and fire fighters were and still are published on VIB along with the name of each employee.

Joanne and her fellow Council member Tony Pearsall helped to destroy the previously good relationship between the City and the PSU's and in that atmosphere they intentionally rejected reasonable offers of contract concessions from the PSU's in order to force the City to declare bankruptcy, with the now failed hope that this would drive the PSU's out of Vallejo and replace them with privatized work forces.

The entire time Joanne was in office, she was fine with the PSU salaries. Only when they dumped her did she change her position.

This makes her a fraud a hypocrite and a sellout.

Is this the kind of dishonorable integrity lacking person you want as a Council member?

I didn't think so.

Remember this on Election Day and do not vote for Schively or her VIB cohorts, Meissner or Meitzenheimer.

joanne is threatened by sam kurshan. he ruined her chance to be mayor and is continuing to inform the public just how rotten and vindictive she is. she was a good old boy like all the rest, but when public safety dumped her, she turned on them. it's that simple.

joanne schivley was a regular endorser of the unsustainable contracts she claims bankrupted the city. same with tony pearsall, both vib icons now as taxpayer advocates, yet they both helped bankrupt the city, they both endorsed an extension of the vpoa contract we took into bankruptcy.
joanne is a fraud of the highest order. pearsall is all that and a disgrace as well.

joanne is allegedly a former banking industry employee but she must have only been a teller. when the movie studios did not pay up after a year of exclusive negotiating rights to north mare island, joanne famously said "what's the rush?" the night council voted to cut them loose. as it turns out, the movie studios have been unmasked as completely bogus. joanne and gomes went along with it because their pal sheriff joe was recruited by the scammers to pimp it to vallejo.
Schivelys a sellout

Schively would sell the wheelchair out from under her if the price was right. She already sold out Vallejo. But the voters will not allow that to happen again.

Joanne's voting record does indeed indicate support for public safety contracts up until they had a falling out and she made the war declaration. I recall her saying she "came to her senses" when asked one time about the sudden departure from supporting public safety. We cannot afford to have public officials prone to lapses in judgement then simply trying to dismiss it by claiming a temporary loss of senses at the time.

Now where did I leave my drugs--the voices in my head are distracting me. They sure give me a vivid imagination.

I am prone to lapses in judgment and then simply trying to dismiss it by claiming a temporary loss of senses at the time.
