One thought on “PART ONE IS COMPLETE ? NOW ON TO PART TWO ?

  1. Martha L. Bridges

    This timely and well documented blog by Ken Mayes has brought him into the line of fire sort of speak on local blogs and new media. All because he dares to speak up about this terribly mismanaged project.

    Some cowardly and misguided soul using the pseudonym “Freedom” is in full scale attack mode on the Lake Elsinore-Wildomar Patch.

    “Freedom” is an alias for someone who likes to attack people from behind the safety or anonymity of their computer screen. Anyone who doesn’t agree with his/her’s every opinion and dares to speak out about the serious mistakes the City of Wildomar continues to make is in for a mean, nasty response. This person is so besotted or infatuated with certain Wildomar city officials that they are completely blinded to the city’s mismanagement and repeated mistakes.

    Freedom displays absolute stupidity in his/her’s inability to recognize the city’s ineptitude and lack of practical oversight of the current road work and most other major projects.

    Citizens in a democracy are supposed to exercise oversight of the running of their local government. They have a duty to recognize mismanagement and waste of taxpayers’ money and to speak out against negligence and the mishandling of the people’s money.

    This road work project is a prime example of the City of Wildomar’s failure to provide adequate management and oversight to ensure the work we are paying for is done according to the terms of the contractual agreement. That is NOT being done, and people need to speak out and demand a better performance on the part of city officials.
