.....in a candid conversation about this City of Beaumont. I have my suspicions and worries about the future of this City and its finances and what I believe to be a reckless regard with the taxpayers money. How it is accounted for, how it is collected, and how it is reconciled (especially in light of the 30-50 yr lifespan of the CFD and Mello-Roos bond schedules.
Whatever happens in regard to these matters, I wish to state first and foremost my kudos to those that have stood tall and never wavered from their beliefs. J Bingham and R Berg, tho we all know sit on seperate sides of the fence, have generally made themselves available and their opinions known firsthand. Unliker some others that hid behind unknown aliases or sitting Council Members that slighted others without the courage or conviction to back up their opinions with the decency of a response, Mr Berg has at least responded. Not to all's satisfaction, but he is not Mr Castaldo, who makes baseless statements of no real value, and then retreats to a hole in the ground (believing he got the last word in)
Mr Castaldo I look forward to your reasoning in your comments in regard to me. You shall see me face to face in Chambers and perhaps then you can explain your comments. If this is how you treat your constituents, your "service" end can not come quickly enough.
To Libi...I admire your courage and conviction and "no holds barred" attitude. It has opened my eyes immensely to an avenue to which all citizens can and should explore. I dont give damn what your personal habits entail, I just recall and agree w/ (Hopeful or Margaret) who said , "I dont wanty as much as a donut bought on my dime"...I didnt get any trinkets, buttons , Christmas Dinners, New Years Partys or anything near the Health, Wage,Retirement, Wellness,Deferals,Loans, that any on the inside of the City get....
If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, tastes like a duck..dont call it a chicken. Mr Aylward you need to disclose your ties to construction firms and real estate investrment firms. Mr Kapanicas, its time for you to come clean with your continuing (or not) "sub contractual" relationship as (once Principal) and now transferred to your Spouse GGMS activities. What is to hide?
Urban Logic..You people are ************* " Ive no $$$ to defend myself in what Ive said..YOUR CROOKS and have lined your pockets for too long with MY $....
As I look over my shoulder...guess whats about to hit the fan?
