Developing and publishing a plan would be one of the first steps in getting wide support for any fundraising efforts.

bahahahahahaha "You should have seen her running around the firestation trying to corner them and dump a lot of misinformation on them. I wish I had video taped her attacks on my supporters. Oh, wait, I remember someone actually did. It was a sight that every voter in Wildomar should see" if said video does exist, please post it, or you can post it on my fb wall: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001361301211 or email it to me at michaelblake1124@gmail.com or michaelblake1124@yahoo.com. exactly thank you for proving my point that you do not care about the parks at all, the only thing you care about is calling the city council out on their so called "mistakes" you and gil are one in the same, pretending to care but everyone knows you do not! Also the group FFWP which i am apart of has out every dollar, every dime, every nickel, and every penny to maintaining and keeping Marna O'brien open.......

@ michael I'm not providing you with anything as I do not trust you to be honest and forthright with any materials that disturb your illogical point of view, but there are plenty of people who can attest to Bridgette's behavior at the firehouse parks fundraiser including some of the same people commenting here. Where is the exact accounting for the use of the contributions FFWP has already received? Paper based, factual, clear accounting. Where is it posted or available to the public? Where is the documentation to back up this accounting? Can FFWP produce it? Will it show that much of that money was used to print campaign signs and other campaign materials distributed in an attempt to pass Measure D? And while we are on the subject, what has FFWP done to demonstrate that they are an independent non-profit rather than a quasi political extentsion of the city council?

I read your comment as I was brought to the Patch. I liked what you wrote, and we started FFWP because the city couldn't step up and make changes to keep the parks. I'm not a fan of some things that have been spread around with FFWP. My name is Craig Santiago and I am the Treasurer for FFWP. I can assure you that we are not a political extension of the city council. I would like to meet you and share all our information and what we're doing. My email address is wildomarparks@gmail.com, please email me directly and I can give my personal info so we can talk verbally.
