  1. Will FFFF be creating profiles of each candidate including community involvement, previous political activity, and whether or not they eat babies?

  2. McKinnley is only 69? Doesn’t look a day over eighty.

    Imagine: Mckinnley, Bankhead, Heehaw on the same council. Three antiquated government pensioneers born before WW II, the big one.

    Aw, mama, can this really be the end?

    1. Good point. Jones and Bankhead appear to be border line delusional. Apparently nobody is willing to tell them to step down – for their own good.

      Lots of acquaintances. No friends.

  3. Two cops and four lawyers. That’s two groups who I’d like to have LESS influence over our grovernment. Haven’t they done enough already?

  4. The OC Register reported that John Noskey the electrician is running for the four year seat, although that was not on the list that the city clerk gave me after close of business on Friday.

  5. lets see, you have a retired cop public employee lover, a i cant win for the third time, a i make commericals for fun, a tree hugger, and some one who does not have a college degree. so we are screwed either way.

  6. Question: How long has Roland Chi lived in Fullerton?

    Answer: 2.5 years

    Q.: Where does Chi Live?

    A.: In a gated community (Hawks Point) that’s in the most remote part of Fullerton that’s more like La Mirada. In fact there are no Fullerton streets will take you to Chi’s gated community.

    Q.: What does Chi know about Fullerton?

    A: Good question.

    1. Houdini, W

      Q.: Where does Chi Live?
      A.: In a gated community (Hawks Point) that’s in the most remote part of Fullerton that’s more like La Mirada.

      Correction; as much as I hate words with an unnecessary “e” on the end; Hawks “Point” is with an “e”, “Pointe”.

  7. Why all the hate for Chi? He seems to be a business-minded guy with an interest in community. So what if he’s new to the area? You don’t have to have lived here 30 years to know there’s room for improvement. BTW-Some quick searching popped up his involvement in bringing a new business to an area of town in need of such: http://www.cityoffullerton.com/tm_bin/tmw_cmd.pl?tmw_cmd=StatusViewCase&shl_caseno=ZON10-00107&projectcasetag=Y
    which I can totally get behind.

  8. help, FFFF, where is your insight and guidance on fullerton’s future? where are the bloggers who research the candidates? Please, must \i rely on the fullerton Observer to find the info?

  9. @Bad Chi: I was just saying he’s doing business in town, and I think thats good. Of course, it’s from my selfish sure-would-be-nice-to-NOT-have-an-empty-Ralphs-here-next-year viewpoint. The minor permit shovels 10k into city coffers–that’s good, right?
    I guess I’m asking “Why is Chi being viewed so skeptically from the outset?”

    1. That 10k went to pay a planner for a few hours work.

      All Roland Chi did was submit an application for somebody, right?

      I view him skeptically ’cause he’s lived in our city for less than 30 months. Just looking for a jump start to a political career? How about actually contributing something to the community first? Not a legal prerequisite, but really a good sign from a candidate, in my view. Otherwise ambition seems to outweigh anything else – like real accomplishment.

  10. Skeptical is good–I’m ready to consider just about anyone for the job as long as it’s not the careerists like Bankhead or McKinley. To my mind, they’ve had their chance. I’m looking forward to learning more about all the candidates, and what they have to offer.
