Today has been an incredible day. But once the agenda and staff reports were posted at the city website for Monday’s special meeting of the city council to discuss our fire department’s future – the magnetic poles of the earth shifted.
My telephone has not stopped ringing for hours. People are at this time numb but that numbness will soon turn into complete and total anger for a man that some of us knew did not fit here in 29 Palms but now has shown that he does not fit by his own actions and words.
Mr. Warne has published today a staff report that maligns, belittles, and insults five other elected members of this community – our Water Board and trust you me they will be coming out within hours with a vengeance we in 29 Palms have never seen before. He also managed to insult every fire fighter we have.
But like a true narcissist he doubled down by publishing a 137 page power point presentation that he intends to present on Monday night that truly could spell his demise as the city manager. It is the most atrocious and unprofessional document that I have ever seen in my life. As with his budget it is a long winded attack piece that is poisonous and toxic. Should he present this piece of work on Monday evening it will be publicly booed and there will be outbursts from the audience due its sheer spiteful tone.
So Jay – I understand your call for “Reasonable voices…” How do you then explain what the city manager has done? Or is the tone of the following links to Mr. Warne’s writings what one would call -”Reasonable”?
