So explain why the "voice of Reason" Cathy Schlicht has violated election laws. I'll be posting proof of this in a few days, but I thought it'd be nice to give you a chance to explain.

Ah,, who do we find here: City shill Dan Avery a clear Ury/Bucknum surrogate. Just say NO to URY & BUCKNUM! Any of the other 4 would do a much better and honest job: Kiss/Sachs/Coleman/Schlicht. Frankly if you don't even have a BS degree you don't deserve to be on the Council irrelevant of you "volunteer" work in the community. Dadid CW what experience are you talking about? landscapes, slopes and what else? 1M Dog parks?

The City Treasurer published the 2012 MV Consolidated Financial Report in compliance with CA requirements. The uniform disclosures are filed with the State Controller each year by all cities. Mayor Ury at all times tried to defend City spending and recently claimed a 1M surplus. According to the press and MV blogs the last 5 year deficits are as follows: 2012 = 5.3 M (see uploaded file), 2011= 3.3M, 2010=0.76M, 2009= 3.2M, 2008=11.0M. Mr. Ury’s election running mate Wendy Bucknum has supported Mr. Ury's spending agenda. Yesterday on her facebook page she claimed that five hundred (500) of her yard sign swere stolen! It appears very clear that she has no clue, that to steal 500 signs from the perimeter of the City during one night you need a large truck and 8 hours of work ! The total weight of such signs and the support wires is approx. 500 pounds. There is no fact check for her stunningly ridiculous claim, and no police reports to substantiate her claim. Just please use your imagination. If the duo is elected to the CC it will be spend , spend, spend until there is no tomorrow. With Trish Kelley & Frank Ury 2 sitting ducks, there will be no one to stop them. Just say NO to Ury/Bucknum!
