Some questions about Pacific's storm | Guest op

By Cy Sun

Who's feeding the fire? Why the fire?

Why is there political fraction trying to disincorporate our City? As yet, the City's insurance has not been canceled.

Why aren't we, your elected officials, not working together to make our City foremost? The council and mayor should be working hand-in-gloves for the City. Instead, there are frictions – conflicts caused by persons having dissimilar ideas or interests.

Why did the insurance company place a moratorium (temporary suspension)? Who fueled the insurance company to initiate the action, singling me out as the victim?

Who initiated the writ of mandate against me, and why?

What are the "valid" reasons for the no confidence (police department and council) against me?

Why are my modest funding requests (three part-time employees) thrown out of the 2013 budget?

What valid reason does the recall committee, headed by Don Thomson, have against me? They started with 41 allegations (statements without proof). The court threw out 39, with only two remaining. Those two will be thrown out by the Court of Appeal.

Why did I retain my own private battery of attorneys to keep our City incorporated and to clean out the corruption? To date, my wife and I have withdrawn from our lifetime savings $70,000 for attorney fees. When this is all over, we'll be paid up in full to the amount of about $150,000.

Now the final question: Why are we sacrificing our money (lifetime savings) and mortgaging our fully-owned home to fight our (yours, my wife and I) battle?

Would you do the same if you were the mayor?

People of Pacific, before you decide whether your are the government of the people, you have a lot of deep thinking to do, and a lot of questions that should be asked.

As your mayor, I'm asking you to step up, stand next to the plate and swing your bat. Clean up your City.
