… ON OUR PARTS
Paraphrasing a commonly used proverb (which is appropriate, as our City Council is a doltish paraphrase of what informed elected officials should be), City councilmember Marsha Swanson’s recent, ill-timed suggestion to explore some form of park tax measure for the November 2012 ballot, has degenerated into a political/civic embarrassment for Wildomar.
The agenda packet for the Tuesday, July 31, 2012 Special Meeting, which has been specifically set to discuss the results of the recent $23,000 telephone poll, does not contain a copy of the report of the results of the survey, leaving Wildomar residents without any information upon which to base their public comments at the upcoming meeting.
According to city staff, the polling professionals of the Lew Edwards Group will be working over the weekend to finalize the report.

Since the November 06, 2012 election was not a surprise to anyone but Swanson, the impromptu City Council direction to their staff to initiate this last-minute ” scramble” is a clear demonstration of City Council ineptitude.
