Absentee ballots will arrive in mailboxes this week. Of interest in Mission Viejo, Councilman Frank Ury is a candidate for OC Board of Supervisors. Ury has a buddy at the OC Register who gives him a boost whenever possible. Despite Ury’s abominable voting record ( http://www.missionviejoca.org/html/article110.html ), good-old-boys around the county can’t be bothered with facts. As for OCR’s other political statements, look at its endorsement in this Primary for Superior Court Judge, Office No. 27. OCR’s choice is a liberal who was appointed by Jerry Brown. In Mission Viejo’s 2012 city election, OCR recommended two special-interest candidates, Frank Ury and professional lobbyist Wendy Bucknum.
Watch for the May edition of Community Common Sense, which will include recommendations for local and nonpartisan offices. Some interesting revelations about candidates are in store.
For the May 5 MV council meeting, Councilwoman Cathy Schlicht has added Agenda Item 11 under her council comments: “Resolution in Recognition of the Positive Impact Proposition 13 has had on the State of California and to Affirm our Support for Proposition 13.” If the council approves the Resolution, it will be sent to the city’s legislative representatives in Sacramento. Also under Councilwoman Schlicht’s comments, Agenda Item No. 12 will revisit the Mission Viejo Nadadores’ Facilities Use Agreement with the city. The council majority on April 21 approved a 20-year contract. Councilwoman Schlicht is asking the council to give members of the public an opportunity to vet and review the contract, including rescinding the mayor’s authority to sign the contract without full council review of the final terms.
