And Another One Bites The Dust

The Word out of City Hall is that the “Community Development” Director, Matt Foulkes, is hitting the road. All the way to neighboring Buena Park, a city half the size of Fullerton. This is not a lateral move.

Matt Foulkes. The spin out left casualties…

Foulkes no doubt saw the proverbial handwriting on the wall and realized the long, long era of incompetence and no accountability in the Fullerton planning process was over.

‘Tam. Smell that smell…

The last straw may have been his ass-backward proposal to convert a park into a private event center masquerading as a aquaponic farm.

Hitching to Buttonwillow…

But Foulkes was by no means simply in over his head. He was part of The Fitzgerald and Domer team that deliberately ignored code enforcement downtown and who actually looked the other way when Joe Florentine forged an official city application document. And then there was the documented theft of the “Fullerton Rail District” name for his own secret plan that envisaged stack n’ pack housing to appease his SCAG overlords, and of course, the now-departed lobbyist, Jennifer Fitzgerald.

Maybe the next Director will be somebody capable of explaining things without a long string of jargon, nonsense and outright lies. It seems unlikely, but the Friends can always hope.

  1. In a lot of cases the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know.

    In this case, I’ll take my chances with the devil(s) I don’t know.

    Good riddance.

  2. A fitting successor to such an expert-liar Joel “Fast-Talker” Rosen-Rosen. Those idiots in Buena Park won’t notice a thing.

    1. As one of those “idiots in Buena Park” I would like more information. I have not been impressed in my dealings so far…

  3. more wasted money by the so-called leaders of our city
    Jesus should just keep his mouth shut and look dumb instead of speaking and confirming that he is as dumb as he looks

  4. This feels like the end of the movie Goodfellas, when Jimmy starts whacking all the mobsters who were involved in the Lufthansa heist…


    Next in line who must go…

    Jones and Mayer

    Tick-tock gentlemen… time’s almost up for you last 3… tune into the next city council meeting for a thorough evisceration of Silva and Zahra for trying to keep this turd of a lawsuit floating in the bowl.

  5. Somehow I think all of this has to do with the overbuilding at Hillcrest Park.

    Something about that whole deal stinks, and that started the exodus.

    1. I think it has to do with the forgery case against Joe Florentine that Domer and Foulkes were both in on.

  6. I think it has to do with several suspicious Exclusive Negotiation Agreements orchestrated by Foulkes and Domer.
