My, My, So Many Mice For Such a Dead Cat
O.K., What gives? The Saturday Tribune lists the local election races open until Wednesday and lists folks who have, I presume, taken out papers to run for the Los Osos Community Services District Board and it said: “Vote for three” and lists the following:
Joyce Albright, Al Barrow, Chuck Cesena, David Duggan, Jeff Edwards, Maria Kelly, Ed Ochs, Steve Senet, Rob Shipe, Joe Sparks and Lynette Tornatsky.
Joyce Albright? Is this some kind of sick joke? Did somebody take out papers and forge her name on them? Joyce Albright is one of the driving forces behind Taxpayer’s Watch which appeared immediately after the recall election with the sole purpose of DISOLVING the CSD, as in, The CSD must Die!Die!Die!. They even went so far as to petition LAFCO to kill the CSD to death. No CSD. Booo! Hisss! Bad CSD, We Don’t Want No Stinkin’ CSD.
Yet there she is listed as a candidate for . . . the CSD?
Even more interesting, as spokesperson for Taxpayers Watch, Joyce has made it clear that self rule has been a disaster, that the county needs to take over this whole pathetic town, since folks can’t be trusted to elect competent people, we need to get rid of the whole mess entirely, and this board and all its heirs and assigns totally suck, yet here are, count ‘em, eleven people running to serve on the board of this dead cat – a CSD facing bankruptcy, dissolution, lawsuits, more lawsuits, including those brought by Taxpayers Watch. (If Joyce wins the seat will she continue to sue herself?). Eleven people? So far as I know, that’s more people running than when the CSD was golden, happy, fully functioning, fiscally in the black, and problem-free.
So, what gives? Organized Farce has finally come to Los Osos?
Well, the election should be interesting. First Question to be asked of each candidate: Did you support or oppose the recall? Next Question: Are you Pro Tri W or anti Tri W? That’ll divide the sheep from the goats real quick. Baaaaahhhhh.
