The Greater Riverside Chamber and the City began their incestuous marketing campaign for the State of the City Address early on, against the GENERAL PUBLIC. About two weeks ago there was a little article in the press marketing the event and it was the first mention that there were free tickets. So I called to get one and this was the conversation: Pay $50.00 or you have to sit with the GENERAL PUBLIC and then after the speech you have to leave the event and you are not allowed to stay for the reception with the Mayor. So no feast on finger food for me !

On Jan 22, will this event be political suicide for the Honorable William Rusty Bailey who will be presenting the 2015 State of the City address to the segregated crowd of the Haves and Have Nots . This is nothing more than another event for the chamber to rape the taxpayer and the Rate payer with the blessing of the Mayor. You have to ask yourself whats in it for him. Maybe a huge political donation, a trip to Asia, or just another party paid for by the HAVE NOT’S so all his friends can come together and let him know how wonderful he is. When really all they want is a city contract.

The State of the City Address – or State of the Speech – is a speech customarily given once each year by the mayors of many cities in the United States and Canada. Most SOTC Addresses are held early in the calendar year, but some mayors deliver their address as late as December of each year. In many American and Canadian cities, by law or tradition the SOTC Address is usually used to outline the Mayors legislative proposal and policy direction for the upcoming year.

Some cities allow nonprofit organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce to use this speech as their annual fund raising event for their organization, and some cities offer a free event open to the public. Some California Cities that offer this event free to the public are: San Jose, Sacramento, Pasadena, L.A., San Diego. Cities that Charge anywhere from $20.00 to $65.00 for the event are: Corona, Riverside, Santa Monica, Burbank, and Mennifee.

I took this issue and this event to the City Council last Tuesday and it just so happened that Chamber Queen Cindy Roth was there. After the meeting she offered me an unused VIP seat and an invitation to the reception. I told her she needed to extend this invitation to all the GENERAL PUBLIC. I also told her that taking public utility money from the ratepayers for her organization was WRONG and segregating the public was wrong. Maybe she thinks shes doing a favor for the General public for even letting us attend.

UPDATE: 01.21.2015: RECEPTION OPEN UP TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC AT STATE OF THE CITY!   WE CAN ONLY REFERENCE THAT PUBLIC EVENTS SUCH AS THE “STATE OF THE CITY” SHOULD REMAIN PUBLIC, AND NOT NOT BE MADE OUT AS A MONEY MAKING ENTERPRISE AT TAXPAYERS EXPENSE BY PEDDLING SPONSORS.
