rudy.. in fact the county does NOT decide all fire/police for our county..santee is a contract city, and they tell the supes how much police protection they're willing to pay for, and the supes provide it.. you might have noticed santee has its own fire department.. at least, i HOPE you've noticed.. if you're going to ask people to support you at the ballot box, you seem to need a MUCH better understanding of how things actually work, as opposed to how you THINK they work.. doug

wow joe four messages yet only posted one! seems i hit a odd button with you. lol I dont ramble like you have, lol but i do fight against the political seats being used to make private profit! The people put up $-redevopment to build the sportplex yet private investors are making profit! this is where issue is. I bring up Rob because he is a real estate business owner on council! he is out for his own interests! business wise! Fox in charge of chicken house! realize there is a issue here! I personally believe chamber of commerce presidents should be in politics! ethically a conflict of interest! I have made changes in this political world, making better for people who are suffering injustices. Sued county and won a few times, ran for county sup, ran for city council, and made lemonade out of fires situation! i won't stop calling injustice what it is! Joe why didnt rob or you come to speak regarding the 11 cancer stacks from hell which is the quail brush power plant! I was there defending your rights too! rob wasnt! lol I've been wondering why any council weren't present at such a important meeting?? shoot but neither was dianne jacob! lol politicians not doing their jobs! protecting their voters!

Doug the county does decide what happens within its jurisdiction. yes cities like santee have own police/fire departments yet they rely on county to advise and help fund these depts. I know very well how the system works thats why i have and am going after county seat! only endorsed to run against in 2008, and soon to be in 2012. Patience and persistence. I challenge anyone to run for a local seat! make a better community and return the political power back to citizens hands not business greed!

Well Rudy I am not quite sure what your line of four messages yet only posted one means....perhaps you missed the other responses above. The post you replied to was made at 6:58PM...but above there are posts at 6:55PM and 6:47PM. So maybe you just didnt catch that. What does it matter about someone in real estate being on the council?? First off, EVERYONE in politics has their own ideas of what should be done..but that is why there are MULTIPLE members of council. So even if Rob had every evil intention in the world....he can't do a damn thing unless the rest of the council--or at least the majority--agrees. Not to mention the fact...if you are so worried about the value of real estate...would it not seem to make sense that of ANYONE on the council Rob would be on top of all issues that affect real estate? Where does your comment about the Chamber of Commerce Presidents come into play with your argument? How is that even a conflict of interest? You ran for county sup....ran for city council.....how did those work out for you? In all sincereity what were the numbers? Were you even noteworthy in the race? For all the changes you say you have made one would think you would have much more success at running in races. As for the quail brush power plant...I cannot speak for Rob. As for myself, I had no clue about any meeting...nor the project. Thus I was not there. In reading comments it doesnt appear it is the problem you feel it is.

no, rudy..you don't know how the system works..you know how you think it ought to work..there's a big difference between those two things..and you need to figure out what the difference is before you go any further down this path.. doug
