"Politicians are like Diapers. They need to be changed often and for the same reason" The Read Morelonger they occupy office, the easier it is for them to accomodate their earnest efforts to; Lie, evade and obfuscate, and sometimes sit mute...

Well well. Mayor Timmy is taking the City backwards. Perhaps he is trying to get in Sync with ourRead MoreSe lf-Esteemed City Manager (Miss-Management). Agenda item 9A is "Toast" now. That was the item that was supposed to allow Citizens to ask questions and get an answer at the next meeting. Turns out that the City Council isnt really all that interested in answering questions (you know, that Transparency Thing). Why should they be held accountable, RIGHT? Public Servants? What a cruel hoax. The exodus of Public Safety management and employees continues. Battalion Chief Lowry of the Pinole Fire Dept has announced his retirement. Another good man leaving in his prime. This City is circling the Drain. The Gang of Four who kneel at the House of Rubin must really think everything is hunky-dory. The Recall has created a slow Death-Spiral and we are seeing the ugly results...

(cont'd) sorry for the cut-off. as I was saying here ...."w/Pinole's closed-door/secrecy,Read Morepetty "inept/incomp, irresponsible" politics, resulting in costly lawsuits, health & safety staffing issues/problems, infrastructure over0loads/breakdowns, attracting more transients/rift-rafters, higher taxes, etc, yes "all of the backs of Pinole resident-taxpayers & community!

Learn to type ChaCha. It is bad enough trying to decipher what you are attempting to say due toRead Moreinco rrect word usage and poor spelling, but the typographical errors make it impossible to understand your point of view.

Michele, suggest you "learn to stay-on point" re the Patch articles topic, and/or try not Read Moreto personally attack, find-fault and/or nitpick Patch posters, it is not your job! I seriously suggest that you MYOB (mind your own business) as it's very clear to me that you are the problem, if not out of line!

If any here think Lac Magantic can happen here, think again. I counted about 180 oil tanker carsRead Morep assing Hercules waterfront within 1 hour in December. The cars were so heavy the ground shook. More heavy oil tanker cars passed last Sunday, they were so heavy on the tracks, making mighty noise, tracks shared by Amtrak! We have no idea what is in those tankers. We can guess if it is oil that it is bad because we already ran out of the good stuff and are using the bad stuff because it is cheap to acquire. The railroad/oil companies are not currently required to tell us. The railroad has rights that supersede any local government, presently. Both the cities of Richmond and Berkeley have made resolutions calling for a moratorium on the transport of Braken Crude/tar sands in their cities, and are pursuing measures to compel the Federal Government to monitor the transport of hazardous materials and prioritize safety for the citizenry. There has been a 400% increase in oil by rail in the pass several years, resulting in oil spills across America, almost weekly, polluting the water supplies of millions of citizens, farmers, wild life, you name it, including the largest fresh water lake and source of water for 7 million, Lake Michigan. That is the price we are paying as our sources of fossil fuel and its productions gets dirtier and dirtier, and the oil and gas industry conspires with our government to remove and investments in renewable and clean energy including solar and wind! By the way, natural gas is not the answer either because it is emits more methane than coal, and fracking to obtain it has destroyed aquifers, produces radioactive waste (not currently be properly monitored or disposed) and may contribute to instability in the earths crust stimulating earthquakes even in places that have never been prone to earthquakes.

correction -I meant: If any here think Lac Magantic CAN NOT happen here, think again.

Mr Plumber n Fellow Pinoleans: Fyi, some of us do try to "lead by (good) example"! IRead Morehave attended council-meetings over the years here in Pinole n another city out of state while helping carei for my aging mom). Also, some of us have to work late or nites w/ 1 or 2 jobs so we can bills, put food on our family's table n to pay for the "uncalled for/illegal" high(er) tax increases as a result of "shady-cronism incomp politicians/city officials/employees, their fellow constituents n lobbiest" in our City of Pinole, County n State of Calif!! I do what I can do (w/my extra time) n will continue to write, voice my opinions, facts, etc via vehicles like the PATCH, talk n educate, n/or inform my neighbors n friends n tele-contact our local City Council member(s) from time 2 time, while being a contributing stand-up citizen n advocate for the "good if not betterment" of our city, state n country! I suggest u preach n contact other tax-paying members/citizens of this "sleepy-head in the sand" community of Pinole to do likewise by lobbying honest-truth n change/improvement w/politics as usual" by spreading the word of "truth in good n bad politics" in Pinole! Just sayin.... Cha Cha Concerned Pinole resident/taxpayer since 1975

Ivette, Do you support the WCCUSD's approach to school construction, that being "scopeRead Moredriven&q uot;, as opposed to "budget driven"? I'm all for building schools, but is this the best approach? From CBOC Secretary's personal website at <http://met3000.cowens.net/posts/budget-schedule-hobgoblins-small-minds/> "When the matter came up, Mr. Fay did not de­tail how this phi­los­ophy led specif­i­cally to the $29M short­fall, but in­stead ex­panded on the phi­los­ophy of scope-​based bud­geting at least as used in this dis­trict: spend without limit on projects until you run out of money -> bump re­maining projects to the next bond -> get the next bond."
