Mansoor's Hot Air Balloon & Wendy's Blog
Remember when Allan Mansoor was elected to the State Assembly last November? Some of us muttered to ourselves, "Well, at least he'll be out of our hair and what harm can he do up there with a legislature dominated by Democrats?" Silly us..
NO SUBSTANCE, JUST NOISE
Since his arrival in Sacramento Mansoor has been more visible in the media than ever before. His most recent adventure, today, was to announce his bill, AB961, which is intended to eliminate collective bargaining for pension benefits by California's public employees. According to some reports the bill contains no specific language, stating merely that it's the Legislature's intent to enact a law "that would reform the public retirement system."
TYPICAL OF HIM
This is very, very typical of Mansoor - toss up a balloon full of hot air with nothing else going for it. This is exactly like his "rule of law city" resolution passed in Costa Mesa last year.
MUGGING FOR THE CAMERAS, ETC.
What it did, though, was get his face and voice plastered all over the media, just like the good old days here in Costa Mesa. For example, he was on John and Ken on KFI radio this afternoon, shilling his vacuous idea, and also appeared on several television news shows. This thing has zero chance of passing the Assembly.
Speaking of politicians, some may know that Wendy Leece has launched a blog recently called the OC Public Square in which she posts her thoughts on issues from time to time. I linked to it a couple weeks ago. Her most recent entry, Do We Value Life In Costa Mesa?, HERE, may be of interest to you all.
A GOOD SOURCE OF INFORMATION
Although I don't know for sure, but I suspect this will be a place where we can get some real information from our City Council. The rest of the guys on the dais seem uninterested in communicating with their constituents, instead they make decisions based on opinions they carry to the dais without the darn interference of public input. In any event, I recommend that you give Wendy's blog a peek now and again.
