PLEASE! Salton City Homeowner .....
Don't judge this area by a few (what do I say?) idiots.
This is a beautiful area to raise a family. Your kids can walk around the block, with head phones on, and not be worried about being harrased. You can walk outside at night and see the stars and the moon.
This area is no different than any other. The only difference is that it is a smaller community and we all know what is going on (and the differences/arguments) are more in our face.
Please -- don't move away!
Don't let the arguements of the community drive you away.
I personnaly do not attend the monthly District meetings, but I do keep abreast of the happenings of the Community. I feel I do not have to participate in the 'foray,' but I do want to know what my community is doing.
I moved here from a large community. Never questioned their rules, just lived by them.
Now, I'm here. Know most everyone. Now I want to know why the rules are imposed.
Don't just move away!! My gosh, if everyone did that, we would not occupy the western United States!!

ditto.

Plus sometimes you just gotta make a stand.

That is what I am doing as a Director, and as a Citizen.

This government entity is no different than any other....corrupt, incompetant, and abusive!

I never ran for office to become a "career politician", I ran to "get inside the belly of the beast and devour it from within".

There are only so many things one can do from the outside but as an insider one is privy to much more information and documents that tell the real story of the SCSD and its' past and current dealings.

I knew I would be personally attacked but that comes with the territory...but yet I march on!

At the end of the day I know that I am doing the right thing by fighting for the people and the rule of law.

So attack away if you must, it doesn't change what my sworn duty is: "Uphold the Constitutions of the State of California and of these United States, AMEN"

No I want to converse about how your mental illness Director Barrett has exaggerated your aptitude to do the people's business.

That you have at last disclosed your exact agenda in:
"get inside the belly of the beast and devour it from within".

Jimbo, you need to discontinue listening to music BACKWARDS, it’s disturbing your judgment.

You also state that;
"I never ran for office to become a "career politician" "

That’s immense; then you won’t take offense to the assemblage that needs to make certain that this IS the conclusion of your political career. In the past you have alleged citizens were out to devastate your political career, now you’ve obviously altered your mind. Thanks for the green light!

You state that the office you were elected to is:
"This government entity is no different than any other....corrupt, incompetant, and abusive!"

Jimbo, Jimbo, Jimbo… you can say that now, as since your election things have turn south rather quickly. You were elected into this government entity with the understanding that you’d live up to what you ran on during the election. You’ve changed your agenda as soon as you got in; you ran on bogus pretenses, you duped the people and the community. You’re the entity that is corrupt, incompetent, and abusive! Director Barrett you are lacking capability.

You go on to blather:
“There are only so many things one can do from the outside but as an insider one is privy to much more information and documents that tell the real story of the SCSD and its' past and current dealings.”

You can’t go back and alter SCSD history, but you could labor for a better future. But in your reality I conjecture the future is; “fire and brimstone”.

“I knew I would be personally attacked but that comes with the territory...but yet I march on!”

I’m delighted to discover you learned the slightest lesson from the website on new Board Member training. You have to stand there and take it like a man, just wish you could gain knowledge of the “like a man” part.

“At the end of the day I know that I am doing the right thing by fighting for the people and the rule of law.”

The “right thing”, does not consist of fighting with the people and bending the rule of law to your needs. You are not managing this in a mode that the people had hoped you would. You’ve cost hundreds of thousands of dollars of the people’s money that could have been spent on items the Community needed critically. You’ve wasted hundreds of hours of employee’s work days, and community lives on your trivial bullsh*t.

”So attack away if you must, it doesn't change what my sworn duty is: "Uphold the Constitutions of the State of California and of these United States,”

Our duty is to end your rein of abuse, and that will happen in the next election. That’s the power the people have, as granted by “the Constitutions of the State of California and of these United States.”

“AMEN”

Gesundheit!
