Start a movement to add to our municipal laws a requirement that no one can run for office if they are employed or were ever employed by chico state or any other university.

YES YES YES I know this is ridiculous, but what I'm trying to point at is a bigger issue; the issue of why our town has to be so stupid.

The university personnel try to impress the infantile style of the university on chico: bag ban...WE don't throw our crap in the ocean like the pigs in the bay and on the coast so why are these "POOFERS" trying to treat us as the same way as the slobs of the coast....WHY???

ATOMIC weapons bans? Give me a break. AND ETC.

And at the same time they play the ignorant and unable when it comes time to negotiate with police and fire (probably because they are truly useless and unable to perform correctly unless in a cap and gown scenario).

And yet they'll fight like hell for the job (unneeded because of a huge school salary) just to show their academia friends how wonderful they are at giving out favors. And because of the relative unsophistication of chico residents they get elected time after time; these university babies are sophisticated in knowing how to get what they want.

Essentially we've traded our city for the weak and low morals of these temporary and transient, insincere and selfish people who care NOTHING for things like a downtown park or creating a family friendly environment, possibly having never had one of their own--they're only interested in recreating the mega-city mishmash they come from.

How do we replace these people with community minded candidates?

There's only one councilor that is not a government employee in some form or another. All the others are public employees.

There's only one councilor that was fighting to cut pay and benefits. All the others have been mum or raised them in the past to where they are today.

There's only one councilor that has proposed common sense and simple solutions to the problems. Kept caper acres open. Brought booze back to Bidwell park.

Randal Stone is the best councilor this cities had in decades. I bet he'd take a drug test too. He runs marathons.

Didn't Randall take a boatload of public cash to build the Taj Mahal style low income housing on eighth? So technically he's not a govt employee but just takes govt money?
Not a hater, love the way he is trying to reign in our Hollywood public safety crew. Waaaay overpaid. Our balanced budget has to start with salary reductions and pension reform at city hall.

Good point Joe. Stoney did get a loan from the City to build some apartments on top of that pit of hell mobile home park. If I recall it was a low interest loan from redevelopment which is a subsidy. Maybe splitting hairs but public money anyway. I for one like that the old thing is gone. But I'm not sure that's the same as having public employee motivation.

Stone sure did piss off those employees something fierce. Last year he told them what he was going to do. I can't believe they act surprised.

@Interesting yeah that Caper Acres fix makes him a hero in my book. I could do without the beer at the golf course though. It just ain't my gig. But whatever.
