Caaaaaan you feeeeeel the looooove toniii-i-ight?

Newly christened Ward 7 Councilmember-elect, John “the Exterminator” Burnard, is already embroiled in controversy.  In an email from Burnard (jburnard@riversideca.gov) to Ag Park (aka, Arroyo Park) family member, Marilyn Whitney, which was then forwarded to RRR (Residents for Responsible Representation) Chairperson, Sharon Mateja, Burnard states, “Got this done today,” in reference to a, “Stop Work,” order issued to the developer of Ag Park by the City.

Thirty Miles of Corruption asks Burnard to elaborate on the email.  What exactly did, “he,” get done?  Many in the Ag Park family are confused and annoyed that Burnard seems to be taking credit for something he could not have accomplished single-handedly.  Despite our inquiry, Thirty Miles of Corruption.com has not yet heard back from Burnard.  Councilman-elect Burnard (as he hasn’t been formally sworn in yet) can contact us via our email address: THIRTYMILESCORRUPTION@HOTMAIL.COM

We want to make something VERY clear to Mr. Burnard: just as your predecessor Steve Adams has done nothing so far to help his constituents in regards to the Ag Park issue, you have yet to do so either.  He may have made a statement or two about it during his campaign expressing his sympathy, but talk is cheap.  We also believe that the longer Burnard is in office, the more his views towards Ag Park will resemble Steve Adams’, because Ag Park will be major legal issue going forward and we believe his loyalty will be to the City insiders’ club, and not his Ward 7 constituents.  We hope that will not be the case, but are not overly optimistic.

As we understand, this DTSC (Department of Toxic Substances Control) letter was received by City Manager, John Russo, on June 16th at approximately 5:30 PM.  In response, Russo made the decision to initiate a “Stop Work” order as is indicated in this City News Release.

Russo thereafter contacted Public Works to officially process the, “Stop Work,” order and deliver it to developer Chuck Cox’s head engineer, Bob Beers.  To our knowledge a Councilperson doesn’t have the power or authority to issue a, “Stop Work,” order.  Soooooo…a person, who is not yet a Councilmember, and even if he was, doesn’t have the power to unilaterally halt a project, seems to want to take credit for other peoples’ hard work.  Is this an aberration or the beginning of a pattern?  Time will tell.

“Got this done?”  Got what done?  We guess if you are a supporter of John Burnard’s you just gotta love the big lug … maybe even expect more of the same, “leadership from behind,” in the near future.  Perhaps it’s just an error in judgment.  But, as we are told, if you need someone to kill bugs, he’s your man.  Some Ward 7 residents are asking, “Is he also developer Cox’s man?” since he got a campaign donation from him, and (from the top picture) is also on hugging terms with Councilman Steve Adams … who was definitely Cox’s guy.  If an exterminator know one things, it’s toxic business, so he should fit right in dealing with this mess.

La Sierra resident, Jim Martin, recently confronted Burnard about the campaign donation.  According to a witness, and apropos of our, “WTF? Observation of the Day”, Burnard indicated he didn’t know this was the developer Chuck Cox, but perhaps another person by the same name!    COMMENTS WELCOMED!

 

REMEMBERING FORMER INTERIM CITY MANAGER LEE MCDOUGAL… What his fixation was with peoples’ behinds, we’ll never know.  Here you go Lee, the way the residents of the City of Riverside will always remember you… Did you get enough of our money to make your payments?  “Got Skeletons in Your Closet?”… you gotta know we know.

SEPARATED AT BIRTH?

While McDougal was certainly a step in the right direction for City of Riverside (a very low hurdle considering his two predecessors, Scott Barber and Brad Hudson, were ethically on the same level as most common criminals), we still bristle at his attempts to censor the public through disparate camera angles and removal of, “controversial,” videos from the City’s website.  You were a good soldier for your masters … just not a very American one.

Was McDougal somehow afraid or offended by a full frontal? From his past it sure doesn’t appear so … things that happen in Montclair don’t always stay in Montclair!  Until next time Lee…

    So, “Stop Work” didn’t take a council vote. It merely took City manager direction to staff. Why didn’t this happen months ago?! The dirt and dust contain the poisons. The construction workers and residents have all been exposed to Dioxins (a major component of Agent Orange). The city still does not want you to know about the Dioxin. It could be in your yard now or the dust coming into your house. This is why we need action from the state and USEPA to sample and an investigation into the health impact upon the neighborhood.

    Riverside: City of the “Holy Dollar Bill,” your tax dollar.
