The war on poverty let me see how's that working out. Seems to be getting worse maybe we needRead More someone else in there instead of babs.

The war on poverty was "lost" by design. For an interesting explanation why you might goRead More to the PBS Fresh Air website and do a search for Sargent Shriver retrospective and listen to the story. What they were doing to help people and train them for jobs and businesses worked, but when party bosses started to see less people dependent on them, and money coming from channels they did not approve of they killed the program.
PleaseGovern.org is a new organization that's using technology to mobilize voters.

Pleasegovern.org could have a field day in Watsonville. They could start by getting rid of the ineptRead More and overpaid management in our city; and do some major housecleaning on our city council to eliminate the general ineptitude, radicalism and racially-divisive politics. Pleasegovern.org: COME ON DOWN!

He's a right-wing nut job and shouldn't get any press for his ignorant views. You're right Pat, notRead More Christian-like at all. What a kook!

This is both sad and funny. That there are STILL people out there that are worried aboutRead More communists...that's the funny part. The sad part is that there are STILL people who hate lesbians. If you ask me, it sounds like Swanson would run away scream if he ever visited a UCSC dorm....I'm just saying.

IMHO.. Our teachers in schools are overworked and underpaid. Check City Manager's salary and perks.Read More He makes MORE than the governor of California. You and Cathy are right. Things need to be structure to help the kids/young adults. I just read with much sadness about the arrest of 5 teens (2 @ 15 yrs. 2 @ 17 yrs. 1 @ 19 yrs.) for the murder of a 12 year old. We are talking about 2 that can't drive yet. This is sad and something needs done. Revitializing downtown would increase tax revenue, give jobs, etc. The Soccer Complex would bring in business and is close to downtown.

Also look at what the police chief makes. The new chief in Prescott az only makes $111,000 a year.Read More Why does our chief make more than the Gov of Calif.? It is a tall tale that no one would take the job for less. Prescott's new chief came all the way from Michigan for the job. We are over paying our city employees including police, fire and admin. and taxpayers can't afford higher taxes to cover the high salaries. New low income or affordable housing doesn't bring in enough property tax income to support the cities payroll, retirements and wasteful practices that city management continues to show.

Watsonville City Council needs to tell the voters of this city their plans for the city, cause as itRead More stands now nobody has a clue. Perception is reality and the perceived notion to fill space with Fast Food establishments only shows Watsonville is out of ideas if these are the only renters/property buyers we can draw in. I've said on numerous occasions that our City Council lacks creativity and foresight. You look at the number of taquerias, fast food, discount stores etc..only shows you we as a city are just filling space cause a space paying taxes and on a lease is better than not getting that money at all and this seems to be the mindset.
