Are you tired of this? Me too.

I’m looking for a caption for this picture – something imaginative, not the same old cranky drunk potshot. There’s more to this picture than a snarling bitch holding on to a sixpack. Think about it. The winner gets a $5 gift certificate from Shuberts and a free ‘NO on J’ sign.

Thanks Toby and Sue for getting those ‘NO on J’ signs out there!

Wow, at last, a change in the weather. Kris Kuyper reported single digit humidity last week – my hair was standing on end, my nose was bleeding, my skin was itchy, I had about enough “drought season” for this year. I can’t wait to go outside after this downpour and take in all the fall colors. 

Our little plastic ‘NO on J’ signs are holding up well. I want to thank Toby Schindelbeck and Sue Hubbard for helping me get these signs out. My husband and I have taken little forays, and we’ll be out there again today and tomorrow, but it’s so gratifying to see signs we have not posted, out there waving in the wind like little red warning flags.

Cause I got a sign, and I’ll wave in the morning, I’ll wave it in the evening, all over this land – it spells out D-A-N-G-E-R, it spells out W-A-R-N-I-N-G, it spells GET YOUR HAND OUT OF MY PURSE, ANN SCHWAB!




Toby Schindelbeck responds to Mary Goloff

17 Oct
Hi all,
On Tuesday night, I addressed the comments made by Mary Goloff about me in the 10/11/12 issue of the Chico News and Review. She had made several inaccurate statements that attempted to discredit me. She also lied about my position on property taxes, and made a false claim that having a Facebook page for Economic Development in Chico would violate the Brown Act.

Click on the link below to read her unprofessional and inappropriate political smear ad:


Her attack was politically motivated, and the fact that she slandered my intelligence and character with lies and half-truths motivated me to respond to her claims at the October 16th City Council meeting.

Please see my response below, and please send her an email at dpresson@ci.chico.ca.us to let her know that this type of political slander and attack is not appropriate for a seated council member, nor is it conducive to civil discourse.

Political smears and attacks like this are what is wrong with politics. We need to work together to improve Chico, and the country. This type of personal attack is the exact wrong thing for a seated council member to do.

Here is my response. It is worth watching:
And please share it with everyone you know who has an issue with this pompous, condescending woman.
