Yucca Valley, Ca.- I must be losing my touch to not have noticed any advertisement in the local newspaper calling for applicants to the Yucca Valley Planning Commission. I did pick up on an odd sense of bravado by Steve Whitten who just moved to Yucca Valley from Twentynine Palms. I have always like Steve since I met him when he ran for City Council in Twentynine Palms. Always a perfect gentleman to me when our paths crossed at fund-raisers, I would hope he would be the son I never had. I always wished the best for him as a newbie transplant to Yucca Valley but he has acted strange lately. Now it seems very clear, he is working hard for extra brownie points.
On February 5, 2013, Yucca Valley Councilman Dawn Rowe will choose from two applicants to be her appointed Planning Commissioner, Steven D. Whitten or Soltanhamid Nooraei. Don’t hold your breath folks.
Based on the amount of brown stuff on Whitten’s nose defending Measure U, showing disrespect for our past Mayor and blindly supporting a candidate that lives on Rowe’s street, odds are this carpetbagger will be appointed. Bringing experience as a previous Planning Commissioner from Twentynine Palms is a good thing but now he will be a political appointment in Yucca Valley, gads.
Here is a heart warming tribute to Steve by the owner of this blog, Dan O’Brien. “Whitten is a guy you want on your 6.” LINK
Whitten will certainly fall in line with the wishes and desires of Rowe and unfortunately, true to political appointments, may be a dis-service to our community. Another pawn on the chess board ready-willing-and able to do the bidding for his new BFFs.
I’m really disappointed to hear this but explains why Whitten has been uncharacteristically rude on this blog.
Someone please get more tissues for Whitten….
