Koyaanisquatsi! Ann Schwab, the woman who denied we had financial problems, is our mayor again!?!

26 Mar

Yeah, I know, my last post was full of bravado! Don’t panic!

Then I watched the emergency city meeting last night, and wow – my guts went into a flutter – time to PANIC!

Just kidding, but wow, what a circus that was. And now we have Ann Schwab as mayor, AGAIN?! I’ve lost any remaining respect I had for Kasey Reynolds and Sean Morgan. 

I mean, I have to agree with Stone here – Ann Schwab was horrible, one of the worst mayors we’ve had. 

Thanks again for this pic PYPR – sheesh, how soon we forget!

Stone, in his tiny mind full of paranoia, opined that Schwab had made a “hard right”, even trying to accuse her and the others of colluding ahead of the meeting – a Brown Act violation. Well, not that I don’t suspect same – but here’s what I also see – Morgan and Reynolds went along with Schwab because they all want the sales tax measure on the upcoming November ballot, and they see Stone as an arbatross swinging low around their necks.  

It was after they’d removed Stone as mayor and inserted Ann Schwab that the meeting got really weird. With the exception of Ory –  who stomped his foot and disappeared into the floor as soon as he saw the handwriting on the wall – council went right back to work and voted to assert rent control on landlords all over town by telling tenants they don’t have to pay their rent during the coronavirus panic. 

Go ahead and watch it yourself, then do your research – they made this “emergency” ordinance without any concern as to how landlords will hold onto rentals without rent. They said landlords could collect back rent after the “crisis” has passed – really? And just how are you going to legislate that? 

Feel good morons is what we’ve got, and we need to find some responsible people to turn them out over the next couple of elections.

    Stone pointed out last night that when she was mayor she was clueless about the city’s financial situation. And he’s right. When it comes to city finance she’s a financial illiterate.

    And I can’t believe people today are cheering this financial illiterate is mayor, especially as we go into a financial crisis.

    One thing is certain, every member of the city council wants us paying more in taxes and will do whatever they can to make that happen. And if you don’t believe that why do you think last year they voted UNANIMOUSLY to advance the sales tax increase?

    All of these people are PUPPETS OF SPECIAL INTERESTS AND DON’T GIVE A RAT’S @SS ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL STRUGGLES! If they did would they be doing everything they can to raise your taxes?

    THEY ALL NEED TO GO!

      All those years under Ann, and Kasey and Sean just forget that over night? I don’t believe that. This political circus isn’t over.

    $8.5 million in debt and a budget deficit of $12.9 million. That was the last time Ann was mayor and that was 2013, 5 years after 2008. Employee salaries were off the charts. And those were during the good times.

      Thank Goddess for you and Dave, I hope other people remember those times too. I voted for the term limits measure in last election, even though I didn’t think it was good enough, because I wanted Schwab out. I think a lot of people had her in mind when they passed that measure.

      Frankly, I don’t believe it’s all roses between her and the conservatives, she’ll pull a fast one and they’ll all be fighting again.
