You must be very proud (June 16, 2016)


Just for some context to Christina Burton’s remarks to the Town Council on Tuesday night, here you are almost exactly one year ago.

Not only have you utterly failed to provide the oft-promised transparency, but you egregiously misrepresent water rates, and then accuse concerned citizens of some secondary agenda for opposing the Town’s insane jihad against Ranchos.

You must be very proud.

By the way, you did a passable job of channelling Richard Nixon’s I am not a crook speech. I always love it when politicians tell us — as you and Scott Nassif did — that the facts aren’t known, but whatever happened, it certainly wasn’t your fault, or even that bad.

So congratulations, you’ve become a full-fledged politician, which means you represent only yourself and the special interests, at the expense of the citizens you claim to represent.
