One of the Worst Decisions

Your Fullerton City Council majority — consisting of Fitzgerald, Chaffee, and Silva — made one of the worst decisions in recent memory last night. Desperate to protect their pensions, and to keep pension contributions at a minimum, the Fullerton Police Officer’s Association (FPOA) approached the City about extending their contract.  They voted yes. CalPERS pension […]

Ed Endorses Young Kim

Running true to form, Ed Royce (R- Bad Dye Job) has apparently endorsed his vacuous protege, Young Kim, to replace him in Congress. It would seem that the job of County Supervisor isn’t as inviting an opportunity for this dedicated public servant to be serviced by the public. This really isn’t much of a surprise, given […]

Another bad sign

A few months ago, I pointed out bogus signs at the train station which cited non-existent instances of the Fullerton Municipal Code.  Those signs were removed a short time later. Here we have a similar sign posted at the Wilshire Avenue parking structure. Fullerton does not have a “No Loitering” ordinance that could be used […]

Trouble at the Airport?

Perhaps. Big trouble. The City is being sued by a former tenant – Air Combat USA – whose owner is claiming the Airport Director conspired to keep him from renewing his lease option for another thirty years, and thus depriving him of the revenue and profit therefrom. Here’s the complaint: Air Combat USA vs City […]

Need a pen?

Need a pen or pencil?  How about a coloring book, a fire badge sticker, or a hat to keep your head dry from the rain this weekend? I guess it’s a good thing Fullerton is swimming in surplus cash.  Oh, wait… Nearly $1,700 for this stuff despite it being known all year long that we’re […]

Who Is Paulette Marshall?

Good question. She is the spouse of Fullerton Councilman Doug “Bud” Chaffee, and has often been considered the brains of the operation. She is also rumored to be a future council candidate from the 2nd District once that district comes up for election – now slated for 2020. Here is Ms. Marshall attending an underpass […]

Where’s Dino?

  Three long months ago FFFF updated the story of FJCs rogue “Campus Safety Officer”, Dino Skokos. You remember Dino, right? He’s the former LA Deputy Sheriff, who, while enjoying a $48K annual disability pension courtesy of LA County taxpayers, and while costing us $75,000 per year us as a guard at FJC, was caught […]

Lemmon Head

Wouldn’t it be nice if every City employee consistently set the bar for professionalism? Michael Lemmon, of the Fullerton Fire Department, thought it was perfectly okay to purchase these inappropriate mugs using taxpayer money on his City-issued VISA card. A couple months later, Michael Lemmon decided the Fire Department needed more coffee mugs, so he […]

Pay The Lady: Nepotism At Its Worst

Today’s ethical lapse comes to us courtesy of the Fullerton Fire Department.  See those shirts pictured above?  Fire Captain Brian Seymour ordered nine of them for some kind of “Peer Support”. Once the use tax is factored in, we paid about $40 per shirt. Check out the reconciliation report.  One can clearly see the purchaser […]

Bad Neighbor!

Would you give neighbors access to your bank account? No? That would probably come as a shock to some at City Hall where (at least) three City of Brea employees have been issued VISA procurement cards belonging to the City of Fullerton. Fullerton and Brea have a shared Fire Department command staff.  The Fire Chief, […]
