  2. Ralph Nader is alive and running in Encinitas. Why? What did we ever do to you Bob?

    To answer your question, Encinitas welcomed me with open arms, gave me a chance to thrive, and make a difference in my chosen community.

    As for the Ralph Nader comparison?

    THANK YOU!

  4. Go Bob-

    I will vote for your platform over Jerome Stocks platform any day.

    Your platform makes sense.

    Jerome's platform is:

    1. Encourage developers to put up as many boxes as possible in our small town to maximize their profit. And....

    2. give the unions every pay raise and benefit increase ever asked for so they will continue to support him.... And

    3. build trophy fire stations for his biggest union supports the fire union....

    4. Build a regional sports park for all of North County on the dime of 60,000 Encinitas residents only... while existing City problems are ignored…..And

    5. As NCTD representative, continue to do nothing to solve Encinitas problems with NCTD. For 8 years he has done nothing to better our rail corridor and he will continue to do nothing.

    Go Bob. We know you will do better than Mr. Stocks.

  5. eco-tourism destination? What the heck is that?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Surfers on the beach and bird watchers at San Elijo estuary are just two examples of ecology based tourism.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Vote out Stocks and Houlihan and replace Bond this November.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Neither surfers nor birdwatchers spend enough $$$ to support the costs of COE govt machine.

    Ecotourism is not self-supporting!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. bob would be an astronomical leap in intelligence from our current town council members specifically Houlihan And Stocks. listening to houlihan and stocks babble is like paying attention to children discussing quantum physics and their only dialogue is the word huh?

  10. Bob - I hope you can reign in the City staff because we all know they are the ones dictating policy and making all the decisions -- think you can stand up to Major Phil Cotton? The only councilmember who does is Teresa Barth, and she has been blackballed by staff and the three councilmember men. It is an ugly atmosphere at the City with Stocks and Dalager trying to keep their sandcastle kingdom from crumbling into the ocean.

    ReplyDelete
  11. so thats why Stocks is pushing the "sand tax"

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's Col. Cotton and Teresa is liked by the employees. Get your info correct. As a watcher and friend of some staff members I'm sure my sources are more accurate.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sorry for my "major" faux pas, guess military titles carry some weight at City Hall. Barth may be "liked" by some employees, but staff (i.e., heads of departments) don't, unless you know different?

  16. RSPB, I just got off the phone with the sheriff Department. They are dispatching a unit to investigate the abandoned white caddy Coupe de Ville at Leucadia Roadside Park. According to the dispatch officer they will place a 72 hr must move notice before it can be towed.

    Bob,
    I'm impressed by how the sheriff dept listens to you. We'll see if it is gone in 72 hours, I've started the clock.
    Thanks,
    RSPB

    ReplyDelete

    Hey NIMBY NAZI- WWWWWAAAAAAaaaaaaaa,Waaaaaaaaaaa,
    WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA move your friggin' car!!!!!!!! It's making Leucadia blighted!!! MOVE IT!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would also suggest the car is at a rather dangerous place in the already congested Leucadia Blvd/Highway 101 interchange.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Next he will be ordering the sheriff to throw us out of the council chambers

    ReplyDelete
  26. Free speech is sacrosanct in my book. And I know the difference between public participation in governance and car abandonment.

    And no I am not Christi Guerin.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't know why anyone in their right mind would mistake Bob for me -- I shave!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That car belongs to a 19 year old local kid. Why don't you guys just leave a note on it suggesting he park it on Jasper St instead of sicking the goon squad on him. Sheesh.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great idea J.P. let's ask the kid to abandon his car on Jasper St. instead. I'm sure the those residents would have no problem with a white caddy Coup de Ville encroaching on that narrow right of way.

    ReplyDelete
  30. On my way to work this morning, I noticed the Coup de Ville has been moved.

    Score another for the Leucadia Blog!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hey Bob,
    He wasn't parked in the red. If you don't want cars parked there paint the curb red. It's not an abandoned car, he just doesn't drive it everyday. I thought you wanted people walking instead of driving.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haaaaa Haaaaa Haaaa Haaaa!

    Good one JP

    ReplyDelete
  33. Bob drives a car to work? He must love George Bush and Exxon.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haaaa Haaaaa Haaaaa!

    Good one.

    this blog is getting funny!

    ReplyDelete
  35. J.P. - that car wasn't moved for over 30 days, it was abandoned until notice was brought to the blog.

    Score one for less visual blight in Leucadia!!

  36. Untrue. I saw him driving that car last weekend. He just parks it in the same spot everytime.

    ReplyDelete
  37. why doesn't the owner of the car park it at his residence?

    ReplyDelete
  38. would you guys be in such an uproar if it was a Prius instead of a Caddy Coupe De Ville? Smells like profiling to me... I'm calling the ACLU

    ReplyDelete
  39. the gloves don't fit. Call my lawyer.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Why doesn't the owner of the car park it at his residence?

    Because he lives in the roadside park.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, then he is parking it at his residence.
