Rancho Santa Margarita- CA - Typical of the series we call, a HOA's Legal - Mind, A Terrible Thing to Waste, Rancho Santa Margarita's homeowners association SAMLARC has initiated legal action against City Council candidate Jesse Petrilla for violation of the HOA's campaign sign policy.
But wait, there is more - The city also has removed signs from city medians according to City Clerk Molly McLaughlin
Don't see a pattern yet?
Did you know that Molly McLaughlin& City Attorney challenged Petrilla’s, ballot designation of "Businessman/Military Officer". Petrilla, under protest decided to go allow the change to "Businessman/Military Reservist.” – how is this an example of looking after the RSM residents’ interests? Have you seen the number of Reservists in Afghanistan? Do you know about the LAPD Reservist killed in Afghanistan this week?
Now, can you connect the dots? HINT: It is a battle between the Machine and the Outsider not unlike the state and national elections: So, if you like the tale of the Witches of the West and Hopey&Dopey, you will love the fact that the Chickens are coming home to roost - just wait for the return of the Witches from the West & the Seven Dwarfs: Deafy, Dizzey, Wheezy, Whiny, Lazy, Grumpy, Dopey.
If you are still having problems connecting the dots, you may want to review RSM's the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, then use the Shovel Ready Voters Guide to give your final answer.
Rancho Santa Margarita's Shovel Ready Voters Guide
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - We say that the 2010 general election is a Shovel Ready Election – including the elections in the City of Rancho Santa Margarita (RSM). As opposed to the promised Shovel Ready Projects used as a justification to pass massive government spending that even the President now agrees, were not really shovel ready, in this case this voters guide is shovel ready: Get ready your shovel, put your boots on and get ready to shovel the guano out of office.
Petrilla Takes On RSM City Hall's Kerryesque Stand on Annexation and Public Safety
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - Jesse Petrilla, candidate for Rancho Santa Margarita City Council blasted the council for its stand on public safety and annexation. Petrilla took particular aim at the votes ".. cast by the three council members up for re-election, may eventually destroy the small town atmosphere we in R.S.M. have all come to love."
While the RSM city hall voted to increase its political capital with parasitic bureaucracies, such as LAFCO and CLRC by reversing itself to opposing LAFCO's amendment to sphere of influence, in essence committing to provide more services to more residents, it also voted to make cuts to its public safety budget: View this as Rancho's version of DC's smoke-filled back room deals which included Stupak's Soul Sale, the Cornhuskers Kick Back, the Union Bribe, the Louisiana Purchase, and others
The excitement in and around the Jesse Petrilla for Rancho Santa Margarita for city council campaign is palpable, on the heels of Congressman Rohrabacher’s endorsement of Petrilla. “I am very excited about the momentum and support my campaign has received so early on. We need to keep it up all the way to November.” Said Petrilla
