24 People Vie for Open Seat

Council Applicants

The deadline for council applications has passed and 24 people want the open council seat that Jesus Silva caused to be vacated.


Technically there are 25 names but I threw my name in not to try for it but to show the ridiculousness that is this process. However 24 peeps actually think they have a shot in this Battle Royale which is just funny.

I’m not that naive, desperate or inane to want this position let alone think I have a shot. Don’t believe me? I listed my kids and my cat as references.

FitzSilva showed their cards last month and we can spot the various partisan stalking horses in the field pretty easily.

Otherwise this list is both a Who’s Who of wannabes and simultaneously a Who’s Who of Who? I’m pretty active in Fullerton politics and some of these people I couldn’t pick out of a police lineup.

I don’t hate a few names but won’t back anybody for obvious reasons.

Gotta love the pretentiousness of some of these applications. 29 pages? Really Mr. Freeman? Come on, nobody cares enough to read that much about a potential appointee. One dude actually included his transcripts but I want to know why he didn’t go all the way back to Kindergarten? We need all of the info apparently so what is he hiding?

I kid, I kid.

Some people are just overeager for power and prestige and don’t know any better. Others of us know that this game was rigged before the board was set out and just find it funny.

Ok maybe that last one is just me.

I’m officially not backing anybody but myself in this nonsense because I don’t want anybody to be appointed. Like I said at council, I don’t care if there are 4 or 5 voices on the dais because despite all of these years with 5 lukewarm bodies up there they have yet to produce so much as a balanced budget.

    You think you’re the only cynic in Fullerton?

    People play the lottery.

      But the lottery is a random draw, dummy.

    Leland Wilson? OMG. The Uriah Heep of Fullerton returns? Dear God.

    I see someone has exhumed the corpses of Larry Bennett and Jan Flory for public inspection. I wonder who that could be.

    So what you’re saying is since you have no chance you’re going to cry about having no chance? Further, since you can’t win on your own, nothing is fair… Even further, you blame Silva for this, but argued against both sides of what he could have done…. Next time leave the dogs and cats out of it, they can’t choose their owner.

      You don’t know your history and have totally lost the thread. I wouldn’t take the job if I could get all 4 votes. I’m mocking this stupid process.

      And yes, this is Silva’s fault in the end. He could have stayed out of the D3 race and finished his at-large term in office as voters expected.

      Also, my wife’s dog refused to be one of my references.

        It was the chihuahua wasn’t it? Lol

        By the way, any truth to Katy Hamel getting fired?

          He identifies as a yorkie mix.

          But yes.

            Enough with the identity politics. We are all God’s creatures. Some just have mean humans.

    Sonia Carvahlo!!?? The one who spent years covering up for the evil dwarf Pulido? No bueno!

    No criticism of Sebourn? The voters rejected him. Why should he merit an At Large appointment?

    • #12 by Anonymous on January 28, 2019

      To be fair, Sebourn’s own district rejected him. This seat represents the entire city so he should be fine. Hah!
