It's sad that this proposition was only brought before voters because the union bosses could not get pay/benefit/retirement/free medical for life raises through the existing supervisors. They will wait it out for eight more years and then get their shills elected so they can rape the taxpayers. The only good to come from term limits has been to get rid of Willie Horton. Gray Davis and Arnold have to be the worst two governors we have ever had. California is bankrupt because of them and the legislature spending our hard earned tax dollars on public employees wages and benefits.
Term limits are good and we need them in Encinitas. There are plenty of capable Citizens to easily fill good council members.The citizens are finally starting to wake up. I hope its not too late.Vote out Dalager, he must hate your kids and their future.
Spread the news. The reason there is not money for your kids education and for parks is because politicians like Dan Dalager voted for their own 40% increase in pension payments forever no wonder we are broke. Just a sampling of Encinitas payments include:http://www.californiapensionreform.com/?p=951HEISER, DONALD $12,021.51 $144,258.12 ENCINITAS HILL, DARLENE $8,433.21 $101,198.52 ENCINITAS ROMERO, ROBERT $8,425.96 $101,111.52 ENCINITAS TUFTS, TALMADGE $9,605.67 $115,268.04 ENCINITAS Your search returned 4 records Records are sorted by Last Name, First Name Total Amount for this Employer$38,486.35 Monthly$461,836.20 Annually The total liability is piking higher than 60%!they are robbing your kids future. Its great to be a government employee!!!It Sucks to be a tax payer and earn a living!!!!!
With Kerry Miller as city manager, the Council approved increased pay for many job descriptions that were part of a city study. That also helped boost the final pension amount.
When city or state employees (you can't call them workers as that would be an insult to working people) retire we are on the hook for their salaries and free medical for them and their families for life. Kids to 27 years. Then they have to go and hire someone to replace their position. They don't pay anything into their retirement but get full salary or higher after 30 years. This can't go on or we will be bankrupt soon. Maybe that would be good.
that would be great... vote out the kid hater. vote for any but dan dalager
Please excuse the interruption.I know that the prevailing attitude to Cardiff's current plight with a general plan amendment to allow 90 foot lights is that there is no money or wait for the election or it won't effect me.THIS IS A GENERAL PLAN AMMENDMENT FOR THE ENTIRE CITY, NOT JUST CARDIFF. LIGHTS AND CELL TOWERS ALLOWED AS HIGH AS NINTY FEET HIGH IN THE ENTIRE CITY? EVEN OLIVENHAIN. THIS IS WHAT COULD HAPPENWWW.CARDIFFIAN.BLOGSPOT.COMPlease pardon the interruption.
Olivenhain? That would never happen.James Bonds ghost lives out there.If you want to kill the lights, kill off the election chances of Dalager in November. Its that simple.
That is the point. He is trying to get this done quickly, before the elections. He will be a lot stronger if he gets his lights. He will get a lot more votes.In turn, he will get less votes if he does not prevail.That is why the WOS are backing this.
What the hell are you saying? Most Encinitas residents want tall lights?If so, put in tall lights.I don't think so. Use this as an issue where Dalager is clueless. Carlsbad residents want tall lights in cardiff, not encinitas residents.Support other candidates and get Dalager out.If you think most encinitas residents want tall lights, then your done. Put your house up for sale. Your plight, doesn't mean that all people agree with you.I for one, think the lights are stupid and unwanted.get busy on voting out Dalager.
...term limits for Encinitas is a positive. It will only happen with an initiative. I would like one four year term. That would eliminate a retirement for the council members.
