The postcard at the restaurants reads “SAVE THE WALK ON WILSHIRE AND OUTDOOR DINING!”
“Fullerton City Council voted to remove the Walk on Wilshire in September”.
A few months ago, the City Council haphazardly voted: Whitaker, Jesus, and Ahmad, to explore keeping it permanent, whatever that means nowadays in this city.
What it fails to acknowledge is that their precious Walk on Wilshire is not a community benefit.
It is far from that.
It is a government subsidized revenue mechanism for a handful of “downtown” restaurants/bars.
Closing Wilshire Avenue to vehicle traffic in the name of public health is dumb government when latest COVID numbers are trending down to such a degree, even hypersensitive Los Angeles has opted not to have an indoor mask mandate.
Blocking Wilshire Avenue – Fullerton’s bike boulevard – in a feeble attempt to turn a very small section of downtown Fullerton into dining al fresco is nonsense since the view for diners is barriers and an asphalt street.
What’s that saying about lipstick on a pig?
“Downtown” Fullerton is not London or Rome!
Walk on Wilshire is Whitaker, Jesus, and Ahmad’s way of sponsoring a select group of “downtown” businesses like Mulberry Street Ristorante, Fullerton Brew Co (formerly Stadium Tavern), Green Bliss and Rialto Cafes, and Les Amis Restaurant.
Les Amis Restaurant recently hosted and sponsored the bitchin’ Zahra campaign kick off fundraiser so it is plainly obvious why that criminal would support Walk on Wilshire.
Jesus Quirk-Silva is just a moron who can’t find his way out of his pants wearing wife’s political shadow.
He’s a lame duck anyway with redistricting sidelining him for a few years.
He has consistently challenged zone changes, government’s heavy handedness, and city thumb on the scale for years.
So why would an anti-government interventionist support this?
Ronald Reagan warned that the top 9 most terrifying words in the English Language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.
Maybe Bruce is not at the wheel anymore.
Fullerton can’t figure out street and road repair with most residents living in street conditions resembling a third world country.
Yet somehow, its City Council and its small group of vocal influencers want to have their cake and eat it too by saving its failed Museum, its Fox Theatre, its outdated library, its overgrown parks system, and “community” events like Founders Day.
Keep spending taxpayer money on closing perfectly good streets like Wilshire Avenue so businesses that financially support Zahra get a financial kickback disguised as public safety benefits.
We need leadership Bruce!
I miss the old Bruce, straight from the ‘Go Bruce!
