A Matter of fact
So, in his response letter to my criticism, Mayor McEachron admonishes the readers
to be careful of those who do not live in the city trying to control the city council.
What the mayor failed to say is that as a result of personal requests, I spent
$150,000 in his 2008 campaign to defeat the Caldwell regime. Also not said, was
the fact that every council member except Ms. Valles has accepted large sums of
funds from mostly outside sources, primarily through the influence of Buck Johns.
So the question begs to be asked; If I have no contracts or business with the city,
and Buck Johns does, why would not the same rules that the Mayor is espousing
not apply equally to Buck Johns, Stirling and the city attorney Debortnowski?
Secondly, much of the monies being squandered by the city council happen to be at
SCLA which is situated in the VVEDA and RDA belonging to the entire high desert.
So therefore, any monies or developments at SCLA most certainly affect the entire
Thirdly, it is widely recognized that the city of Victorville is the window of the Victor
Valley as a whole. What happens in Victorville affects the entire region. So, in this
regard, any resident in the Victor Valley most certainly has a vested interest in the
mismanagement and wrong doings by and in the city of Victorville.
Mayor McEachron personally introduced me to Ms. Valles with the hopes that I
would offer her the same financial support to get elected so that he could have a
collaborating force to assist him with his agenda and objectives. None of my
positions when supporting McEachron have changed since supporting him. Ms.
Valles has not modified her views and positions either. Therefore, suffice it to say,
that as McEachron solicited my help, based upon the foundations of his then
positions, I have every right as well as an obligation to voice my disapproval with
his actions and inactions that are contrary to his obvious new philosophies.
