timtim... one thing you need to get into that thin skin of yours. John McCann is done in this town. Done! Finis! The End! Caput! He is washed up as a viable candidate for anything that requires a public vote. Toast! If this GJ testimony doesn't sink his boat, then the public will eviscerate him in any election he runs in. He is everything that is wrong with Sweetwater and a whole lot more caca. He needs to pack it in. He is done, washed up, tossed out like yesterday's trash. So move along little man. Your horse has left the barn.
Because John McCann is not above doing anything that may garner himself a little bit of recognition.
Political statements/Signage on personal property is protected by the First Amendment. I think it can be as big as the entire garage.
teachersrock - the district employee is one of Brands closest s friends. He does a lot of Brands bidding. Problem is the sign was on private property and the man had allegedly been paid to host the sign.
No doubt Brands blood pressure soared as he walked over to open his office blinds, and there before him stood JAIME MERCADO for SUHSD. School board.
Jaime Mercado would not even accept a paid for cup of coffee - Jim Cartmill, John Mccann, Arlie Ricasa and Pearl Quinones - wanted ALL AND MORE, PAID FOR OF COURSE!!!!!!
Mr. Castaneda: Not sure what grade of beef you are use to consuming, but I believe the Grand Jury testimony is FILET MINON.
With all due respect, IF, a person of your stature is of the belief that this is all about nothing, then truly the South Bay is far worse than I thought.
My words, "with all due respect" - I meant those words, I was not being sarcastic.
Just received a telecon, apparently a couple of parents upset that John Mccann is speaking at an elementary graduation hung LARGE posters over a couple of overpasses one on 805 one on the 5, north and south. The posters depict John Mccann with a bozo nose and hair - large work JOKE printed.
Tell me Mccann did not really worm his way into an elementary ceremony.
I volunteered for future protests.
The Romero brothers are cooperating witnesses. It is a tough world, but I believe it is their obligation--in fact all people's obligation--to tell the grand jury the truth.
I haven't seen the dollar amounts for all the bids, so I don't know how much difference between the winning bid vs the others. Did any of the bids take missing conduits and shoddy previous work into account? Would ANY of the other bidders have had to have large change orders as well? Companies I have worked for would have included in assumptions in their quote that existing wiring or other conditions would not be included.
This just couldn't be! Cartmill has assured everyone that his problem came from asking for money for a charitable organization. Besides the Har brothers got medicine didn't they. This couldn't be a conflict of interest better known as a shake down. Wasn't it Har that couldn't finish their work because they under bid the contract because they didn't see the shoddy work done from Prop BB. Missing electrical conduits etc. They couldn't do the job without a huge change order. Maybe someone remembers the story. Har couldn't afford the cost of wining and dining the board. The Har brothers thought it was an expense that would get them in the door. Wrong boys once they eat from the trough your on the hook forever. Jim should have told you being the good man that he is. Loreto's testimony is a real eye opener.
