On Mar. 22, City Hall presented its annual “Up in the Air Festival.” The idea is to celebrate everything that goes up in the air or uses air to operate. Residents would instead like some attention to things on the ground. Last week, homeowners in a neighborhood near Marguerite Parkway and Alicia Parkway circulated a petition to get their streets repaired. Instead of a coat of slurry, temporarily covering deterioration, residents are asking for real repair and maintenance.
Read an amusing article by Art Pedrosa about Councilman Frank Ury, who is a candidate for the OC Board of Supervisors, http://ocpoliticsblog.com/does-oc-bos-candidate-ury-want-mission-viejo-residents-to-pee-on-trees/
Ury refers to himself as an “engineer,” but what has he engineered in the last 15 or so years? His jobs have been in sales or information technology, not engineering. Currently, he says he’s building computers for HP. Does he mean putting them together in a warehouse? A prior post on this blog about Ury’s career path got such a rise out of Ury that one of his buddies at the county level wrote an email to this blog’s publisher. Ury evidently was known as a conservative in the early 1990s, and some of his acquaintances are clueless about what he is today. Here’s his voting record: http://www.missionviejoca.org/html/article128.html . You can run but you can’t hide.
