Cal Coast News – funny story about San Luis Obispo council workshop reminiscent of some Chico meetings I’ve attended

This story is hilarious, and it reminds me of the recent local government comm meeting during which it seemed Mark Sorensen and Sean Morgan and Larry Wahl were bitch fighting about library funding. Supervisor Maureen Kirk had asked for an explanation about the CBG funding process. Sean Morgan complained like a little child that the library supporters called him a “terrorist,” while Mark asked him several times to get back on topic as he and Larry Wahl made little snide remarks back and forth. Mark said testily to Morgan, “your point?” several times. Maureen apologized for bring up the subject!

Our meetings are like a reality show too, I wish more people would come in to watch this stuff. I can’t possible write down everything I see and hear at these meetings, you really have to attend one to see how these people diddle your tax dollars. 

I really like the Cal Coast News – they cover stuff better than our local media.

    That’s a good article. It captures the flavor by reporting thorough quotations. I wish I could write like that. It’s hard work, one must take really good notes or record it.

    Its like how you (Juanita) did for the candidate forums Chico Taxpayers hosted.

      Thanks Michael, I hope to get to more meetings and follow their lead.

    You’d never see the Ent Wretched report like that…they’d say everything is Oakley, dokely, A OK with sunshine and lollipops.

    Remember the old days on the local news when viewers used to write in? I always got a chuckle out of some of the emails. Today I stumbled across this while trying to find out some info on Paul Zingg.

    I wonder what Zinggers compensation is up to now, prolly half a million a year when you count pension, free mansion to live in, car, etc.

      I’ll have to watch the interview with the Orion when I get a minute. His comp package is ridiculous. He gets a housing allowance so he can live up on Hwy 32 halfway to Forest Ranch instead of having to live in the ghetto around his college.

    If you go to youtube and search on paul zingg or enter iYy59Fk9Nlg in the search box that video should come up.
