Council’s 2019 To-Do List

The transition to District elections is proceeding smoothly.

Well, the election is over. Silva won, Sebourn lost.  Zahra won in District 5. The circle of political life turns once more as light falls on a new day in Fullerton.

Now that all the sign waiving, sign stealing, and empty-promise making is done, let’s take a look at the problems these poor fellows signed up to solve.

      1. How about Amerige Court? Will staff ever let that monster be put to death? NO. Not as long as pensions threaten City solvency.

  1. This is hilarious. Anybody think Domer could handle 1/10th of this, raise your hand!

  2. Perhaps we can add how to stay out of trouble for Lieutenants to the list… You know, where you follow the Direction of the DA and the Chief, avoid lawsuits for wrongful arrests?
