When the agenda for tonight’s council meeting came out last week, I took a look over Brian Nakamura’s “reorganization” plan, and wrote this e-mail to Mark Sorensen:
No, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be rude, you know me. But Brian’s plan is no improvement, just a bunch of moving around of walnut shells. That diagram is awful – THAT is supposed to be simplification?
Why isn’t employee share on the table? We need to make them pay their share, period. Is that even being discussed? And when CalPERS comes to us for more, we need to RAISE the employee share too, instead of just raising the EPMC.
I’m sick of paying for public workers’ benefits and not being able to afford a decent policy for my family, because of the effect these benefits packages have had on the industry. It’s like feeding blue jays.
UPDATE: No, Juanita is not too mean. Mark Sorensen deserves a noogie for going along with Nakamura’s reorganization plan, and that’s all he’s getting out of me in 2014.
I’ve had enough of Mark Sorensen. He tries to feed me information on the sly, tries to lead me to certain conclusions, tries to get me to expose and talk about things he doesn’t have the balls to talk about in his own blog. Which, by the way, has sat idle for months. There’s no law against an elected official having a blog, I’ve seen plenty of local politicians use their blog to keep citizens posted on the issues at hand. I get a really good newsletter from Doug LaMalfa and e-mail alerts from Jim Nielsen. But Sorensen is a pussy, there I said it. He wouldn’t say “shit” if he had a mouthful, he’d just pass it along to you and expect you to eat some too.
