First At Bat; Swing and a Miss

I was perusing old drafts of posts and came across one that needed to be published. The issue itself is bad enough – the virtual surrender of useful public land to build a “boutique” hotel. The fact that the “developer” had no experience and no track record was bad enough; but the idea that any hotel patron would want to spend the night next to the train tracks or in the vicinity of the downtown Fullerton week-end train wreck was laughable. What was even worse was the dumb rationale our council used to keep this metastasizing idiocy alive.

Over several years the dream of our former lobbyist councilperson-for-sale, Jennifer Fitzgerald – a boutique hotel – refused to die, even after Fitzgerald finally bolted from Fullerton. It’s last iteration in December ’22 was approved by our typically befuddled city council.

I’ll take a bite at that apple…

Which brings me to the point of this post. In her first meeting as the councilperson representing District 3, Shana Charles voted on this embarrassment. She spent that opportunity to display the critical thinking one would expect of a PhD, but demonstrated just the opposite. Listen:

It’s real nice that Ms. Charles felt obliged to share her “thought process” with her constituents. But whatever that process was, the result was comical. The the good doctor believed that such a boutique hotel will support “County functions” and “event and community centers” in DTF, but she didn’t elaborate on what those events and centers are. Why not? Because there aren’t any, unless you think of the Fullerton Community Center across the street from City Hall to be the sort of place out-of-towners will be so keen to visit that they’ll book a room at the Shana Charles Hotel.

  1. That’s the best she could regurgitate? Pathetic. Still, the others voted for this bullshit, too, and nobody gave a decent or remotely intelligent reason.

    So…Fullerton, Jake.

  2. Some things never change. Zahra, I understand his vote cause he’s an imbecile, “Dr.” Charles is a professor, okay, CSUF “professors” are not the brightest bulbs in the room. But, Whitaker went along with this? Is this shit for real?

    1. You’re surprised about this? Whitaker has been supporting this public giveaway since Day one.

        1. Well, maybe you’re right about that. But if so he changed his tune and went along for the ride – which if you think about it is even worse.

  3. On a wing and a prayer is the motto of Shanahmad. Neither can do anything courageous. Just more drifters shoplifting from Fullerton. Guess being lazy in life and now on council is how both Shanahmad have maintained such a concave boatlike shape.

  4. Shana Charles sitting on the dais is more proof that Fullerton voters are thoughtless sheeple who are easily led around by the nose and eaten by myriad predators.
