    Fullerton government will descend into madness as the poor fiscal health of the city starts turning into accelerated service cuts. I wouldn’t want to be sitting at the helm right now. Good luck.

    So we are building more high density condos and at the same time cutting services to prevent fires from spreading. Maybe we needed to not re elect these idiots that keep running our city into the red. I wonder what candidate Whitaker has to say about his vote.

      If there was a fire, a hundred hose jockeys from all over would just stand around watching the thing burn down. The real culprits are the craven politicians who gave the cops and “fire fighters” all the lavish pay and benefits.

            You should see the article on Jane Rands on the Fullerton Informer! Yikes!

              Oh, you mean the article that should have been about CSUF ‘s million dollar giveaway to undocumented immigrant students? Instead it was about a nobody reporter for a nothing newspaper. Talk about missing the mark.

                Should just rename the blog “WHY I HATE EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO AND ONLY I WILL TELL YOU THE TRUTH AND SAVE YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO ME BECAUSE I’M IMPORTANT BY JOE IMBRIANO AND SOMETIMES BARRY LEVINSON WHEN I LET HIM TALK BECAUSE SOMETIMES HE TRIES TO WALK IN FRONT OF ME AND I HAVE TO JERK HIS CHAIN” .COM

        Then MAN UP fred. Go to the Fire or Police Academy, do the job and get the benefits. Quit your bitching and join the winning team; or just keep up with your miserable existence and complaining cause that will get you everywhere. LOL.

          Ah, let’s see. Because I hate getting ripped off I should become a con man?

          Even your GED self can see how stupid that is, right? Oh wait…

          Nice use of a semicolon.

          Wrong, but nice try.

          Not to worry. Somewhere, there’s a truck that needs washing. At $200 an hour, I’m sure four of you can get it done in a shift.

          Typical union goon response. How about you “heroes” finally admit your massive compensation packages are bankrupting our town? The public is getting hip to the scams perpetrated by you “heroes” as they slalom around potholes from one corner of the city to the other.

            are the only city’s in OC that still have Pers on Pers in place.

            • #16 by F & SA on April 11, 2019

              What does Pers on Pers mean?

                You don’t want to know. It will make you cry.

                  Is Fullerton fire able to count vacation days as working days for the purpose of calculating overtime? That’s an old scam that most fire departments have in their union work contracts. Just one of the many ways they are able to rip off taxpayers.

    SAVE THE HEROES! HEROES FIRST! MAKE HEROES GREAT AGAIN!

    This is the exact attitude that got us into this mess. Every single pot hole in this city is a monument to policemen and firefighters who STILL make more than $200,000 a year in this city, a city that’s drowning in red ink. These are the same employees committing sexual misconduct, filing false reports, stealing, battering the public, and buying goddamn salty bitch coffee mugs. They don’t care about you or your safety. They care about their boats.

    More taxes are coming. We told you so and your idiot neighbor is going to vote for them to save the heroes. There is nothing you can do to stop it.

    These union jacksticks won’t be happy until they’ve raped our parks, our roads, our utilities, our property tax bills and our kids’ futures for their obscene benefits. Screw them.

    • #21 by Anonymous on April 8, 2019

      All because they want to buy second vacation homes and new boats every five years. They earn far in excess of what the general public earns yet they have the nerve to complain that it’s still not enough.

        But they put their lives on the line every day. Driving to Ralphs to get supplies for hamburgers and chili is dangerous. There could be an accident.

    Fullerton city council knows if they promise their public servants generous salaries and pensions then these same people will vote them into office over and over again. Thanks to apathyland known as Fullerton, Ca is is easy to power-grab municipal government.
    As an aside, why is it whenever paramedics roll to a call must a large fire engine follow requiring many hours of maintenance performed by same firefighters when the fire truck returns to the the station. Maybe overtime for these firefighters would be reduced if logic not geed applied to this suggestion instead of getting rid of a fire truck?

    • #24 by Anonymous on March 24, 2018

      “geed”……new FFFF word.

    • #25 by Anonymous on April 8, 2019

      Fullerton can privatize paramedic services and save an enormous amount each year.

  6. #26 by Moving to Brea on March 20, 2018

    If our city council wanted to save money, why did Fire and Police Management units and Firefighrer and Police Officer units all get approved by the council to have no insurance increase on the employee end? All fire and police employees make over $100k a year, but they can’t afford to pay more for insurance? Maybe if the city gave up and declared bankruptcy (since we’re in a budget crisis) they’d fix our potholes.

      You are a pothole.

  7. #28 by Just Off Euclid on March 21, 2018

    I’d like to know what “costly non-essential” services are and why we are paying for them in the first place. Would that include buying reclining chairs for the stations?

    • #29 by Anonymous on March 21, 2018

      Right? You want to make your workplace nicer? Buy a used couch, hold a fundraiser or ask for a donation. They couldn’t pitch in $75 each among all the Fullerton fire department to buy the lazy boy furniture that only benefits them?

    Fullerton could do the same exact thing as Placentia – they could also probably piggy back onto the Lynch contract and let the fire “heroes” fight fires and save Fullerton taxpayers millions every year.
