He’s No Friend Of Brea.

diamond_dIn the past 72 hours, this self-absorbed nutjob published seven blog posts, supposedly about the Brea downtown parking structure. The total word count is 13,781 words, not one of which bears even a slight resemblance to the truth.

He eviscerates the hard work of Brea’s staff. He dances on the edge of slander, painting grotesque and wholly inaccurate pictures of every Brea Council member. He does a libelous job of character assassination of the downtown Brea business owners.

His schoolyard attempts to bully me, disparage this blog and cast aspersions on my interest in and support of my community is of no concern. This feckless pretender lacks the power to blow his own nose.

So, what is this rambling shock and awe campaign knocking Brea really all about?

What’s the point of his scandalmongering personal agenda? Why does someone recently relocated to Brea, renting (not a tax payer), operating a less than stellar legal business from his kitchen table (I assume he has a Brea business license) suddenly take such an over-the-top interest in local government?

I think his saber rattling is designed to produce one thing, plaintiffs. He’s stalking new prey.

Diamond_3BHis work as general counsel for an Anaheim based political activist group seems to have come up a crapper and he has rent to pay and a reputation desperately in need of repair.

It seems he may be in the market for new clients interested in suing Brea. Contrary to his protestations, not the best way to help preserve Brea’s general fund.

I find him, his tactics and agenda appalling. I worry about those who seem to have been hypnotized by the drone of his voice.

Folks in Brea see him for what he is.

Thankfully, only a handful of Murdock’s leftovers give any credence to what this numbskull posts. I’m surprised they have the stamina to wade through all that indecipherable blathering.

I’ve been thrilled to hear from so many friends and neighbors who get it, who value how a revitalized downtown will benefit this community for decades to come. Who understand what an investment is, that the ROI will begin the moment the Council approves a contract to build a parking structure in downtown Brea.

Real Brean’s are people who believe that a project which pays for itself in the long run is well worth the investment.

 

Marick Mea Culpa.

Marick in jail.Even with it’s twisted pretzel logic, MPT Marick’s mea culpa following “Matters” last Tuesday confirmed a pattern of Murdock supporters intimidating Brea businesspeople to remove opposition’s signs and their practice of late night sign vandalizing across the city.

Citing content as the issue, that it was slanderous and in poor taste, Marick completely overlooked the accuracy of much of their content, which eliminates the slander charge, and the sign maker’s right to express their opinion unencumbered by subjective judgment.

Murdock in jail.Combine what we now know about Marick with Murdock’s 2010 campaign founded on empty rhetoric leading to four years of no promises kept and nothing of note accomplished…

and his 2012 clandestine opposition to Measures T and U which resulted in a $2,000 fine from the FPPC for election law violation… and you get quintessential dirty politics.

Murdock and Marick must harbor pretty low opinions of the people they serve.

We see you!Do they think we don’t see through the asinine answers they give to serious questions, the preposterous claims of major accomplishments they pile on their political resumes?

Do they think their whimpering and whining will mask the fact that they, at minimum, have as much mud on their hands as they claim fouls the hands of their opposition?

Mr. Murdock, Mrs. Marick… that sound you hear isn’t fracking in our hillsides, the shrinking of our pension liabilities or cactus growing in the Civic Center Garden. It’s the chip, chip, chip of the epitaphs being chiseled into your political headstones.
