Yucca Valley, Ca.-Commentary-The Hi-Desert Water District had a policy of rotating their President on the dais, that is, until last year when HDWD Director Sarann Graham hijacked the position for a second year in a row. After nominating Vice President Roger Mayes to the position, Granny Graham sat in awe of herself when she was nominated for a second term. The right thing to do was to support Director Mayes instead of swooning over her own nomination.
The result of serving a second term may have helped her in the bid for re-election as she positioned herself into every photo-op possible this past year. At the last Yucca Valley Town Council meeting, there was no one there to represent the HDWD but they forgot one thing, the elections are over and Granny Graham has no need to make an appearance after being re-elected. Look for her to distribute Christmas Cookies to the Council at one of the December meetings.
Perhaps it was due to a full moon last night or the fact that she has been sitting on the “Throne” for too long, impressed with her self importance, but Granny Graham reached a new low by chastising a citizen’s public comments. Not only was this citizen NOT in attendance at the HDWD meeting but Granny Graham watched the dvd of the Yucca Valley Town Council meeting and added her snitty remarks against the citizen’s public comments made at the Town Council meeting.
Yucca Valley Mayor Dawn Rowe was sitting in the audience last evening perhaps giving Granny Graham encouragement. Rowe heaped on her criticism to this same citizen for her public comments last week as she defended Town Manager Mark Nuaimi’s salary of $250,000. Nuaimi presented this fact in a power point presentation and any citizen had the right to comment on that slide to express his or her point of view. Rowe took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the State of California and the United States Constitution….I guess she figured it was okay to toss out the First Amendment which is part of the Bill of Rights.
Okay ladies, your stint is over as rotating Mayor and President. Please go quietly without any State of the Town or State of the HDWD hoopla, okay? We are in a still in a Recession and your glory days are over until the next rotation four years from now.
By the way, your manicures are long overdue…..Meeeooow!
