In the Californian today''s editorial page: "the right move" rose Roses to Chris Hyland, the Lake Elsinore activist who has dropped her plans to pursue a recall against City Councilman Daryl Hickman. While we disagreed with the firing of former City Manager Bob Brady this spring, and thus with Hickman's vote for the dismissal, we believe that recalls should be reserved for cases of criminality or gross incompetence. Brady's firing did not come close to rising to that level. Voters who oppose what happened to Brady are free to make changes to the City Council if its members seek re-election." REPLY: I couldn't agree more. The voting slate of Hickless and Webless will still exist unless appointed councilperson Weber isn't elected which should be the case based on his gross incompetence alone. Malicious will fall into obscurity or be charged with an RDA conflict of interest, Weber will not win office this November's election & Hickless can move on with his Trevi partners. These are my personal rassberies to these manipulating corrupt power mongers.
