While observing the Wildomar City Council meeting last evening, I thought the defining moment was when a young teenager, who was admittedly a big supporter of last year’s failed Measure D, stood up and told the City Council about his disappointment over the failure of the measure because it was associated with Mello Roos.
Continuing with youthful eloquence, he calmly stated that, if the City Council proposed another parks funding measure that was associated with Mello Roos, he would be unwilling to participate in any support activities for the new measure.
In contrast, later in the evening, City councilmember Marsha Swanson, took the opportunity to dismiss the entire Mello Roos argument, by foolishly reminding everyone that it was only two guys names attached to Communities Facilities District legislation.
Obviously, in her arrogance, Swanson missed the moment and the point.
