Things you’ve never heard someone say, “We need to make things less complicated and cheaper. Let’s hire a lawyer.”

The letter published in the Sept. 7-13 edition of the San Clemente Times by lawyer and pro-district election shill Brad Malamud is a perfect fit. There’s no evidence provided for changing at-large voting except you would get to vote for someone who is your neighbor. What’s so great about that?

The last lawyer we had on City Council was a neighbor of mine in Rancho San Clemente. He wanted to pave over Open Space in our own neighborhood. Fortunately, we had Councilmembers from other parts of the city who thought that was a lousy idea. Proof that the current system works just fine.

  • The Fleecing of San Clemente

    The donation of 100 parking spots to the owner of the Miramar Theatre is a ( fascist) insult ! are you better off San Clemente ? or would you be better off with a commuter center with an extra hundred spaces to park or go to the beach and trail . San Clemente City Council meetings are business meetings why didn’t they charge $ for the spaces all they’ve done is add value to the blight and prolong its eventual demolition or over development

    councils next move will be to fund the miramar buildout for Councils (fascist) agenda against the citizens of San Clemente, Because tourism-chambers and dba greed is more important than the resident citizens Of San Clemente , Council is so nearsighted and in favor of special interest that they didn’t even negotiate a bus turnout , handicap spaces or delivery spaces etc for the blight we know as the Miramar Theatre nor charge $ for the p spaces gifted or allow for a public vote for that matter , please stop the fascist subsidization of special interest

    Are you better off with the Amtrak station at the pier where there is no commuter parking or If the Amtrak stopped at North Beach Would it Bring better commuter opportunity and business opportunities to the public And businesses in general thu out our community and not just the pier bowl merchants/DBA ,,its also a great way to fight the troll road

    Are you better off that fence boards and ladders can’t be stored on vehicles overnight but surfboard can seems pretty mean against the citizens of San Clemente and the American worker

    It saddens me that illegal immigrants homeless and special interest are more important than our hard-working citizens in general . I for one cannot afford a $200 Taste of anything but I can ‘afford a taco I asked that a new community Cultural Center be built in the Vista Hermosa Sports Park that reflects our true size Diversity and brings affordability of our 70,000 residents

    our tax dollars and freedoms are constantly in danger from special-interest ,and fascist agendas of our existing Council

    One must consider how many American workers with ladders on their trucks ole Hanson defrauded and burned .And how much of our tax dollars go to special parking lots or special agendas of our special interest groups and greed , i state residents first and don’t vote until you know the candidates and their agenda after all should we vote on items like the gift of a hundred p-spaces for the wealthy and false history of the historic society or a possible plaza / commuter center
