Marin County: SMART plan needs financial review

All of this has been said on other threads. Already, an 82 unit condo complex has just been built across North San Pedro Road from the Civic Center (33 North San Pablo) ...which is now the end of the train line... This train does not serve the residents of Marin County in the least. The housing built for civic center workers, the train built for civic center workers who live in Sonoma. All done according to ABAG model of building housing near transportation and all for the greater benefits of Sonoma, not Marin.  (Nov 9, 2010 | post #20)

SMART train to skip downtown San Rafael and Larkspur Ferr...

This is what is happening at the Civic Center...Those making the decisions are doing it with the Sonoma County residents who work for the county best interests and not the best interests of the Marin County residents. The same can be seen in the workforce housing developments, too. An 82 unit condo complex was built across from the civic center (33 North San Pablo)to provide housing opportunities for county workers and to comply with the ABAG model of building housing near transportation.(SMART) This SMART train fiasco is all just a part of the bigger fiascos being planned and developed.  (Nov 7, 2010 | post #123)

SUVs? How nineties, Moronite. You sure have been gone a long time...  (Nov 6, 2010 | post #51)

SMART train to skip downtown San Rafael and Larkspur Ferr...

That was the point, Janet. This train does not serve the Marin people and yet we pay. Workforce housing being built so workers from Sonoma county can move to Marin, trains for Sonoma county residents commute. When is the county of Marin going to begin to serve the people of Marin County and get their heads out of Sonoma?  (Nov 6, 2010 | post #49)

Report predicts slow recovery of Marin economy

You are a waste of time, Gramps Moron. Your pathetic, homophobic, and bigoted spews only make one grateful that you left the county. Why don't you find something more positive to do with your time other than making a big fool out of yourself on these threads? You are an angry, bitter old man who doesn't have a clue... By the way, Gramps. I am not a male "of the rainbow", nor do I have any interest i "scoring hippie chicks". I am a female, and my only attachment with Liberace is that I have been known to wear a bead or sequin or two in my lifetime. Do you have the capacity to come out of the delusional world that you are getting further and further stuck in or are you a lost case? I surmise the latter, unfortunately, based on the progression of your comments, you silly, silly, old man.  (Nov 2, 2010 | post #15)

Report predicts slow recovery of Marin economy

When are you going to come up with some new material, Gramps Moronite? And speaking of archaic devices, you sound like a broken record. Why is it that the majority of your posts do nothing to contribute to the conversation and are only attacks on Marin county posters? Since you are no longer a member or resident in our community, your "facts" are dated and your prejudices against members of the community are bitter spews from an ex-Marinite. You moved on, so let your animosity toward the Marin County community go, too.  (Oct 29, 2010 | post #10)

Pension bonus bid alarms Marin supervisors

Well said and a point that is very much lost on county workers and retirees. The sense of entitlement of these people is audacious, arrogant, and a collective slap in the face to retirees such as yourself and those in the private sector who will also face retirement without the guarantees that are provided to the county workers at the expense of the taxpayers.  (Oct 27, 2010 | post #31)

Foreclosures climb in Marin but default notices slow from...

No, that is not what I am saying and your making that inquiry and assumption is hardly the "rational apporach" as your moniker claims. Many cancer survivors can "cut it" as you so eloquently put it but just because some can doesn't mean all can or will. I think that the problems in the State are too big for her and will not cast my vote in her direction. BTW,'rational', I too have had to deal with cancer, but that is immaterial to the thread. I will not be extending a "solidarity " vote to someone that I don't think can do the job. There is too much at risk here.  (Oct 26, 2010 | post #7)

Foreclosures climb in Marin but default notices slow from...

The rise in foreclosures shows that we do not need more housing development in this county. The development being planned and built is not "affordable " and does not benefit those who are in real need of housing or the communities in which it is planned.  (Oct 26, 2010 | post #3)

The suspension of her schedule at this critical time in the race does not show the stamina, strength or ability to go the distance. This doesn't speak well for her. We need leadership that can put full focus on the tasks at hand. She cannot even put full focus on the campaign without suspending it on the week before the election. This is not a good sign.  (Oct 26, 2010 | post #2)

Thursday Readers' Forum

Not everyone doesn't want a Target in San Rafael and not everyone wants one in Marin City. Nobody ever agrees 100% on anything in this County as you should well know, Native.  (Oct 23, 2010 | post #4)

Good idea, and then one in the middle in east San Rafael, too. That way the whole county is covered with Targets.  (Oct 22, 2010 | post #2)

Marin County home sales thaw, prices rise in September

What also was stated here is the decline in condo sales, indicating and validating the concerns county residents are expressing regarding the recent development campaign going on. It is time to abort all plans for condo development as there is no need or desire for them here.  (Oct 21, 2010 | post #3)

Marin pension board rebuffs county 'straight face test' plea

I don't know what your obsession with chai is, Grandpa Moronite, but you sure mention it a lot. I myself prefer coffee, not tea. I don't think I have ever had a scone, either, come to think of it. But what either has to do with county pensions is beyond me. Your irrelevant comments make it seem that your moniker is an actual description of yourself and not sarcasm. You are off on Planet Claire...I will pass on the bong too, old man, it isn't my personal "cup of tea" either, but I do believe marijuana should be legalized and will vote for such.  (Oct 20, 2010 | post #34)

Novato red tape consultant cuts new county deal

Yes, consultants are regularly contracted to do the work, however supervision is not a strong point at the County in any capacity whether it be of contractors or employees. This can be seen in the current state of affairs with the pension fund, the computer software debacle, and the decaying infrastructure, to name a few. The knowledge base at the County is not strong enough, so consultants are brought in. Because of the weak knowledge base, those at the county doing the selection of contractors or hiring of staff do not know how to recruit. It is a big mess and the taxpayers pay and pay and pay while the services are cut, capital improvements are delayed, and more taxes and fees are requested of county residents in order to compensate for the incompetence, waste, and the salaries, perks, and benefits for the county workers.  (Oct 18, 2010 | post #11)
