Thank you Mission Viejo Patch for hosting the debate. We the people need to take back our City from long-term incumbents who have become out-of –touch and deaf to the constituents they represent. You deserve the truth, respect and truthful answers and to be able to hold elected officials accountable. Together we can work toward solutions and make our City a better place to live. I would be honored to receive your vote on November 6, 2012. Please visit http://djk4mv.wordpress.com/ and my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/desikiss.formv to learn more. Thank you. Desi J. Kiss, MS,PE City Council Candidate

This is strange. It seems that the Patch lost my tie photo in the archives. I was wondering about Cathy Schlicht's & Bill Coleman's photos? Why not on the Debate poster? In any event please vote for Desi J. Kiss, MS,PE on November 6, 2012! To learn more about my candidacy kindly please visit : http://djk4mv.wordpress.com/ and/or http://www.smartvoter.org/2012/11/06/ca/or/vote/kiss_d/ Thank you all again for your kind words, support and vote!

Thanks to the Mission Viejo Patch for hosting the debate for City Council candidates! It is so important for citizens to have the opportunity to see and hear their candidates. Thanks also to Wendy Bucknam, Frank Ury, Desi Kiss, and Ed Sachs for taking the time out of their busy campaigns to participate in this public forum.

Interesting debate! Sorry that Mr. Sachs had to leave in the middle of the debate- I hope it wasn't to put that flyer on my car that only listed himself and one other candidate! Thanks to those candidates who attended the meeting. As Mayor Ury explained, if you are asking for my vote it is important to show up when we are asking questions about how you will govern our great city. Newcomer Wendy Bucknum had an impressive and thorough understanding of so many different issues. Best of luck to you all.

I would add that it's pretty dang insulting of those who show up, the check their watch and run off to something more "important," like Mr. Sachs did. He showed an amazing lack of respect for the voters and shouldn't get their support.

From MV voters: Misty Webb via http://www.ocregister.com/news/city-375680-ury-park.html (see comments) Very interesting unfortuately was not aware of this get together seems like alot of residents must not have known w/such a low turn out...not sure who Kiss is but definetly going to check into this cause anyone who can clearly make the statement that the city is too business friendly is right on the money, at this time the businesses in the area get away with sooo much expecially when it comes to disturbing the residences that R located by them, the clear example is the 7/11 story it is exactly what is already going on in the city w/existing businesses, what is needed is stricter regulations, code enforcement on business & keeping in favor of the residents Not the businesses, cause if it is not for the citizens in the area there would be no need for businesses, the city needs to improve on what already exist before doing anything else & there is alot of work to do,, don't get me wrong there is much to love about MV its all the behind the scenes that needs some cleaning; also the University in MV is a great idea on many levels, many people like myself moved to MV & deal w/the ups & downs here just so our kids could be in the district w/great schools/opportunities & adding a Univ would only heighten the appeal for those wanting to live in the area would hopefully bring back families to the area & maybe then wouldn't have to close down so many schools; Lots to think about :O
