"BTY, Jim Flournoy was on the Rosemead redevelopment committee appointed by Tran and Nunez"

Just what is this "Roosemead redevelopment committee"?

and just what, if anything, did Tran and Nunez ever appoint me to?

Amazing, Jim you know darn well what Average Juan was talking about. He meant Planning Commission, which you know as well, the council appoints. Are you saying that you were not appointed by the council majority? BTW, many people who live in the unicorporated section of Rosemead put their address as Rosemead. Many of these people asked for ballots, where mailed ballots, but when they were returned it was found out that they don't actually live in Rosemead. You are just speculating since you were not even at the recount. And yes at the recount that information wouldn't be disclosed, but at least you would have some insight as to why the ballots were disqualifed. And let's not forget the county disqualified these ballots. Is the county also discriminating against these people or are they just doing their jobs? Let's see you use the race card in this one. It's also amazing how you avoid answering questions by diverting to other issues. Now that's what I call below average.

It appears that Jim F... is on the Payola with the attorney, and the "SOC" people got the big one. Jim answer the question and SHOW THEM THE MONEY, spread the wealth around or is it for the ones you pick only like JT, JN and PL. So sad that you are a hypoc....

Who's writing your script?
See my picture on the Planning Commission?
I'm standing right between to Steven LY and Sandy Armenta.

South San Gabriel residents have a legitimate gripe.
We used to have our own ZIP code 91777 and our own post office over on Potrero Grande.

Now we have to use 91770 which comes up
are you ready?
why don't you ask Marlene about this one.

I am corrected, yes indeed Jim F is NOT on any commissions. I got him confused with someone else. I admit when I make a mistake. Also, no one needs to write any scripts for me. I am an educated person who can speak for themself, thank you very much. You don't seem to handle when people confront you on issues, you back peddle.

Sorry Jim Flournoy, it was Larry Bevington, and Todd Kunioka (both from the Save Our Community organization as you) who were appointed to the planning commission. You're next. Your application is on the council's desk.

Todd Kunioka was/in not an officer of Save Our Community Inc.
we all attended the Community Group meetings but there were no "members" as such- pretty informal

Larry is a Civil Engineer and former City Manager of South El Monte, Sierra Madre and currently is a consulting Engineer to Palmdale.
Todd is a PhD in Political Science and a professor at CalStateLA
It is too bad that these two were not around when the new General Plan got underway.
The New General Plan was prety much formulated even before former City Planner Brad Johnson was hired during the Imperial, Taylor, Clark era.
Way before Tran and Nunez and Planner Matt Everling.
The City (Oliver, Brian, Matt) had a specialist, Ken Wilson, rewrite the Safety element (which was especialy inadequate) then had it peer reviewed by another well qualified specialist as part of the settlement of my lawsuit against the Rosemead Building Official

That part came out pretty Damn Good.

Portions of the rest are still controversial.
Too bad we could not have started with a clean sheet of paper but the consulting firm had already been contracted/ paid.

You never get more than what you pay for- the trick is to get what you pay for. Did Rosemead?

I'll post something on that on my SOC blog when I get a chance.

I'm next? Do you know what fat chance is?

Well, well, well, Jim you drama queen! Or are you still consider a gadfly or knat or something like that?

The good will overcome evil and it just chaps your hide. You are part of the problem that made Rosemead look like a circus. A small circus with you sneaking in over the fence and under the tent. And now a $6.00 an hour security guard is tossing you out! You must be outraged that the ringmaster is gone and not saying "let the little boy stay"

Pay your fee like everyone else!
