Don't quite understand the first post. But then again, I never really understand liberals either.
If you are going to talk about business and taxes you have to understand what your talking about in the first place. Let me explain this a little more in detail and slowly for the first poster.
Four different businesses had to either go out of business or leave the area all together for one business to buy or lease the four buildings in question. So tell me again how that works for SB?? This one business may very well work out for SB and employment but opportunities for shoppers is taking it in the a$$..
So, to answer your question about "tax and spend democrats" yes, it effects the economy, the budget and the future of California. When you lose four businesses and get one in return where going backwards. But then again, democrats rely on backwards evolution to get re-elected….

If you think your going to hear logic from the likes of whosecityisthis2012, touristunfriendly or RHS you will wait a lifetime.
All they have is bashing people who want answers, who want their tax dollars spent wisely and stop spending money on pet projects.
1) I never said the jail should not be built. I've lived in SB County my entire 50+ years. I remember Sheriff John Carpenter asking to have a north county jail built. When was that, 25 years ago?? If the dumba$$ politicians would have listened to the first Sheriff and 12+ grand jury reports recommending the same the jail would not be costing $100 million+ to build today.
Some of you need to wake up to the fact that some people need to be locked up. Now, we have state prisoners being released here in our own backyard or clogging up our county jail and the Sheriff is now being forced to release inmates to keep other jacka$$ locked up.
The fact is our local politicians have failed US taxpayers time and time again. And what do we do as voters? Elect the same idiots that ALL of us here complain about.
IT's time for new people in office. Voting the same idiots time and time again is not working and the sh!t will eventually in fan….
On Maintenance Ordinance Dead on Arrival?

"the county’s $300 million-and-growing deferred maintenance backlog."
Like I've stated a bazillion times on these blogs the failure of our local government starts with our inept board of supervisors. Can someone please explain to me if we have $300 million in deferred maintenance how are we going to pay for $15 to $20 million in added costs annually to the "New North County Jail?"
I'm not saying what Adam did was right but he just pointed out how much in trouble this county is in with failing infrastructure and continued building of a massive new building the county is going to have to maintain.
Either I'm an idiot or the voters of this county keep falling for the same old BS our brilliant politicians keep spooning to them. If we keep the same failed politicians in office we have nobody to blame but ourselves…...

Must be an election year. Both local politicians are out telling us how they are going to save us and keep us safe again.. Isn't that your job in the first place?? Time to vote them both out. When politicians have to come out and tell us what they are going to do when they are all ready elected officials is a sign, BIG SIGN….. NEW BLOOD IS NEEDED!!!!!!

I could have sworn Sheriff Bill Brown told us during his Hollywood style re-election announcement that "Violent Crime" was down. Or is it only down when re-elections are in full swing. Another failed politician making false claims to the public…
Then we have DA Dudley going after sex traffickers in the county. Funny my sources told me deputies were told to stop arresting prostitutes and/or johns now all of a sudden its a priority. Another failed politician.
Now we have both the DA and Sheriff stating they are going after elder abuse suspects. WHY do they have to call a news conference every time they do something.
Silly me its all about getting re-elected again.
VOTE THEM ALL OUT. FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION AGAIN...

Your right, but only partially. County fire paramedics do fly on county ships today. That only started around 2008. Prior to that all rescues where done by search and rescue.
They (SAR) handled hundreds of calls a year. In fact our local team is the busiest war team in Calif.. That is a fact. Prior to 2008, our local team rescued 100's of people who were lost, injured or had died from their own actions.
Nobody died from search and rescue themselves. It is a shame that the politicians, mainly the county fire chief and the sheriff wrote an agreement between themselves that takes our local volunteer search and rescue team out of the equation. THAT IS A FACT.
It is too bad that the Fire Chief strong armed a weak Sheriff into writing an agreement that takes out VOLUNTEERS and putting in his own people because if they weren't fly on helicopters they would be watching tv or sleeping while being paid by taxpayers. THOSE ARE THE FACTS….

BC, your absolutely right in both posts.
What annoys me is that we have to have this POS politicians right a "Bill" that states it creates a culture of "No excuses". REALLY!!
How about writing a bill Tax'in Jackson that states politicians can't pass legislation that sucks the money from the taxpayers anymore. Can we do that???

If you ARE a member wouldn't you know why the DSA didn't endorse and not the membership? Are you not a dues paying member? OR, are you part of Billy's management team?
If I'm not mistaken I believe the DSA endorsed Thomas for Sheriff. Wasn't that the 1990 election between Vizzolini and Thomas? And wasn't Vizzolini hated by the DSA?
I'm starting to sense a pattern here Lawman….
