Public trust destroyed (August 9, 2017)

My trust in public official Marc Puckett took flight after learning of his monkey business with public pensions in Flint, Michigan, his hasty retreat from Costa Mesa with investigation pending, and his factually unsubstantiated, creative findings in water savings in Apple Valley. However, in my opinion, he really zooms to dangerously demented when I read his claims about being followed by some Ranchos person after his hit and run accident in Rancho Cucamonga.

Common sense leads all of us to the same opinion of why, at 11:30 p.m., Mr. Puckett quickly left his vehicle and the scene. While he has admitted to being the driver of the vehicle, something which may cause his attorneys to fume, there is no way to check blood alcohol levels. As one local, respected, and well known criminal defense attorney stated, better a felony hit and run, than a felony DUI hit and run.

Apple Valley has long blamed Ranchos/Liberty for everything. Mr. Puckett’s attempt to blame Ranchos/Liberty for his irresponsible and possibly illegal acts, in striking and hurting another’s person and property, exceeds the bounds of human decency. No such person should hold a position of trust to the residents and taxpayers of Apple Valley. His exit should be quiet and swift.
