Watch them appoint the Tea Party self appointed president, petty girl friend, Shelly Milnie who tried to get appointed to the parks commission a couple of months ago.

So, Jerry couldn't just finish his council term & not run for re-election?

This stinks like a dead fish.

Good riddance, Jerry.....

The real reason dear old frenchy is "leaving" is to report to his new post in the falling down house of cards that is san bernardino.

you'll have to hunt high and low for the coming pronouncement, it will be a stealth "appointment" to be sure.


chaos is where the money is made. and san bern is transforming from the epitome of smoky back room "politics" (read, DEALS) that would make capone envious, to a "nearly normal" state of affairs (I know, such as THAT is) where "real" regulation is closer than it has ever been in that wild west money trading show.

and jp is sending his most obedient puppet to join in the fray of chaos where real money is to be made.

frenchy's "qualification" will be the big trash deal he "helmed" in hemet. if you look around just a bit, you'll find that san bern has a trash system that dwarfs hemet's, so the take will be enormous.

it will be either waste management or republic that winds up with the prize, with a big finders fee going to jp through franchville.

note that this post will live for two seconds on these hallowed pages of truth, which marks them as no doubt accurate.

funny how the pe protects some cities, and spanks others. take a look at how it trashes moval, canyon lake and riverside, but hemet, elsinore and perris can do no wrong. any negative thing about them is quickly marched off the front page, and out of the archives asap, replaced by such important stories as church singing, pet parades and the like.

really now. how transparent.

i'll copy this and throw it on topix, why not.

like i said, it will be hidden, but discoverable. and when it happens, will that just be... coincidence?

oh, and yes, hemet will definitely try to hop on the bk train, but unlike many cities that overspent on pd, fire and big wigs, it will not be doing it because it's broke; it will be doing it because that way the cm can steal more of the millions brought in by the ripoff trash sale.
hurts to be true, don't it?

Jerry told us why he resigned. He said he didn't want to put his family thru the "silly campaign season". Let me interpret... "My fragile ego will not allow me to sit in my precious council chair while average citizens, and campaigning council candidates point out all the mistakes, lies, and crooked decisions that I have made over the last 3 1/2 years. I will therefore resign now and let Youseff and Foreman take the heat." Plus, he probably needs to move out of Hemet because it is too dangerous to live here.
