If Public Safety is not addressed, Harris, Mintz, Cole will unwittingly bring disincorporation and bankrupty
Twentynine Palms – I would venture to say that currently all five of the council are registered Republicans. If that is not the case then I would hope that I get corrected. Be that as it may a majority are Republicans and what have we seen them do? They have pandered to the few that are considered the elite with Project Phoenix and have ignored the infrastructure of the city which serves the people.
They have ignored public safety by not addressing the very real problem of a Fire Department that will go insolvent in two years. They somehow tell the people it is not a council problem, knowing all the time, that the dissolution of the Fire Department shall cause the city to contract out fire protection to the county.
That contract will exceed the current parcel assessment fee dollars and within years the city will go bankrupt. Why? Because county fire costs twice, get it right, twice as much as our own homegrown fire department. But this council will not do a darn thing for the good of the majority of the people. Instead they do nothing. Which brings me back to your point.
The choices are clear. No incumbents and no former incumbents.
That means no HARRIS, no MINTZ, and no COLE. NO! NO! NO!
That leaves three new faces. LUNN, EASTER, and WRIGHT.
Some phone calls have come in about what I have said in regards to our local city council elections. Evidently there are individuals out there that are part of Park and Recreation and or associated or related to the Park and Recreation employees who are spreading the following about any challengers to the incumbents or the retread incumbent those being HARRIS, MINTZ and COLE.
If a candidate is for saving our Fire Department then that candidate is for “draining the General Fund”. It is exactly the opposite. If you are against saving our fire department you are then a General Fund drainer.
Why? As I have said many time before and said it in the above post. County fire cost twice as much as our own fire department.
I did not make that up Chief Hartwig even said so during his presentation without saying so. All one has to do is look at the numbers.
Again it is HARRIS, MINTZ and COLE that will put this city into bankruptcy because they have not offered a solution to the fiscal issues of our fire department other than giving up and paying twice as much for a service that as a city we must have or face DISINCORPORATION.
I just hope that LUNN, EASTER, and WRIGHT have their campaign “A” games in place and have the courage to face these peddlers of disinformation.
