Bending the Truth on Measure Y

Bending the Truth on Measure Y

Ed Selich submitted a commentary that is misleading in the extreme about Measure Y (see the NB Indy issue of Oct. 17). As one of the architects of Measure Y, he is clearly invested in its success. However, in his commentary, he bends the truth to nearly breaking. Mr. Selich claims that if Measure Y fails, […]

The Choice is Clear

The Choice is Clear

This year’s council race is supposedly feisty or contentious, but really the choices are simple and clear. Diane Dixon refers to Rush Hill and his ballot pals Mike Toerge and Tim Brown, as the “Oer the Rush Hill Gang” because it pertains to their push to keep things the way they are. They all endorse […]

It was a great privilege and honor to be present at Corona del Mar High School recently to unveil the newly renovated Marian Bergeson Aquatic Complex.

Assembly Candidate Curry Discusses Platform

Assembly Candidate Curry Discusses Platform

As Newport Beach residents go to the polls to pick a new representative in the state Assembly, the voters will face a stark choice.

Measure Y and a Group Think City Council

Measure Y and a Group Think City Council

Being elected to the Newport Beach City Council (even being appointed to fill a vacancy) or being appointed by the Council to any one of the several city commissions in no way conveys to those individuals any special omniscience or omnipotence relative to providing good local governance and or sustaining the city as a residential […]

Transparency Needed for Measure Y

Transparency Needed for Measure Y

If I could teach the Newport Beach City Council one thing, it would be that we expect transparency from City government. Transparency in government means that what you see is what you get, and it is the opposite of what the Newport Beach City Council has done with Measure Y. Measure Y exists only to […]

Yes on Measure Y

Yes on Measure Y

The opponents of Measure Y want you to believe the proposed general plan update will cause a massive traffic jam. An independently prepared EIR and traffic report for the update reach the opposite conclusion. It is easy for opponents to exaggerate the scope of the update since most people do not think in terms of square footage. […]

Misleading Summary on the Newport Beach Ballot

Misleading Summary on the Newport Beach Ballot

For government to function properly, elected officials must be honest and not attempt to mislead their constituents. In recent years every level of government seems to be embracing dishonest behavior in order to win elections and hold power. While the Federal government gets most of our attention for its untrustworthiness, our local governments are not faultless. A case in […]
