still not that interesting- seems like he got away with a lot for a while and failed state licensing but the county didn't do enough documentation to sustain the dismissal.
On Judge Sides with Fired County Manager

Jarvis- you are confused because you are relying on Nick's spin. For a true primer based on facts- boring to be sure- visit the sbcag website videos from 2010-2012 and read all the plans and motions supported by Helene wholeheartedly, in response to the voter approved Measure. All were done in public meetings complete w public comment, and the citizen oversight committee's involvement and predicated on the language in the ballot initiative.

Jeremy is only as diabolical as Helene asks him to be . Maybe I missed it but where in this column does nick connect the dots vis a vis Bellosguardo- Lindaman- Pulice- Helene? Maybe next week.........

Newsflash mike- it's not "our leadership' that decided the freeway needs widening. It was 79% of the electorate, with Measure A. Helene is counting on ignorance in her desperate attempt to rewrite history. Facts are not on her side.
On Scarlet Schneider?
Posted on December 21 at 11:57 a.m.
Jarvis - you are (deliberately) distorting the point- Schneider is acting outside of Council policy and direction - defying longstanding prioritization of the 101 HOV project and most recently unilaterally canceling the City's cosponsorship of the Chamber breakfast. she is rogue- taking marching orders not from constituents or council policy but from--????
On Highway Project Promises to Ruin City Traffic

Just watched the SB Council of Government meeting on Ch 20- the rebuke of the Mayor was shocking and unprecedented. No one supported her becoming Chair, which would normally happen since she's been vice-chair.

Jim- you cant have it both ways. You state that "the city would not exist if IV had been included" - true, but using the same logic, the City would not exist if it were not for the RNA. You seem intent on creating a fiction wherein the majestic City of Goleta sprung up all of its own volition, oblivious to the realities of its gerrymandered boundaries and mandates obligations. You reap the tax benefit from the retail spending of IV residents and their parents yet you want to pretend that the booze bought at Costco is unrelated to the woes of Isla Vista.
On Barking Up the Wrong Tree

Oh Helene. Your delusions just seem to be getting more distorted. You are no longer representing the City of Santa Barbara, on SBCAG or anywhere. You seek only to derail (pun intended) a project supported by almost 80% of voters, in order to ingratiate yourself to a few wealthy egomaniacs.

Oh, please, John Locke- you and a handful of people may buy Caruso's predictable, choreographed temper tantrum. the rest of us vividly recall Caruso pitching the same fit six or seven years ago and he got his way then- and an approved project. Yet he thrives on publicity and manufactured controversy so, here he is again. Yawn.
On Miramar Languishes in Limbo Amid Parking Concerns

Botany, I agree- Caruso finds a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Yet there must be method to his madness. He had to know that such a significant reduction in parking would not be met with open arms. He plays the long game. Just hard to tell what that game is
