Everyone who lives in South Mission Viejo is very familiar with these problems:
- Traffic congestion and parking issues the current council “cannot” fix.
- The apartment-building mess on Oso and a threat of more development to come.
- Mission Viejo has fallen to No. 13 among California’s safest cities. http://tinyurl.com/oxrc7yj
We have solid evidence of the city council’s incompetence and their outrageous votes – we are living with the results. On Nov. 4, residents get a chance to throw them out!
Will you now take action by sending in your absentee ballot or going to your polling place on Election Day?
Voter turnout will be low, and our neighborhood can change the council majority if we all vote! Do not vote for incumbents Rhonda Reardon and Dave Leckness or lobbyist Wendy Bucknum!
Pro-developer incumbent Rhonda Reardon also wants to pass a city law to punish minor children for e-cig possession – a $1,000 fine and up to six months IN JAIL with a misdemeanor conviction on their record with the FBI. Passing such a law takes away parents’ rights and can ruin your child’s life forever: http://tinyurl.com/ouhuql6.
Watch Dave Leckness brag about traffic on Oso Parkway and the “luxury apartments” in this video: http://tinyurl.com/qefrg4k. I guess “luxury” means high-density housing, traffic, overcrowded schools and subsidized housing (you paid for with local taxes) for applicants who take all-expense paid vacations to Bali: http://tinyurl.com/q9sanec.
Lobbyist Wendy Bucknum is backed by a labor union. She is bought and paid for by special interest – the worst of all eight council candidates. She’s the VP of a property management company, PCM. Their business has a monetary interest in adding more housing and TRAFFIC to Mission Viejo. A council seat would be a conflict of interest for her. People might be acquainted with her, but they don’t know she’s a lobbyist: http://tinyurl.com/l6stn2d.
“Wendy Bucknum rounded out the day along with special guest Shawna Rimke, District Director with U.S. Congressman Ken Calvert’s office sharing expertise on how to “Lobby Your Legislator.” Which provided tips and tools for everyone as they headed out to visit their respective legislator offices. Chapter members visited the offices of Assemblymembers Solario, Miller, Norby, Wagner and Harkey. Martin Paine, District Director for Senator Mimi Walters‘ office came to the Chapter office to visit with everyone from CAI-OCRC. Day in the District 2011 wrapped up with a successful debriefing session on the visits.”
On Nov. 4, Reardon, Leckness and Bucknum should not get even ONE VOTE from South Mission Viejo! It is amazing anyone who lives south of Oso has a yard sign for Reardon, Leckness or Bucknum.
Please know the candidates before you vote! (http://tinyurl.com/kdkd2vn).
