We've all seen the District Attorney's six page letter -- it's even posted on the web -- explaining the investigation, the violations, the findings. I thought that was why the board spends 1000s every month to have an attorney around.
Denying the DA's investigation and findings could indicate ignorance, stupidity, a lobotomy, or just a lie. I suspect a lobotomy or a lie.
The writer's failure to understand the value of the Nursery or removal of invasive species, now that's just ignorance and stupidity.
And talking about stupidity, who might know the details that are mentioned? Doesn't the writer think people would recognize the say-it's-a-lie, change-the-subject, personal-attack tactics? The civilized world doesn't engage in that juvenile behavior, so it's a giveaway.
We all know who really "got her back up" in that situation -- and often still does. In psychology it is called projection
, the juvenile behavior of accusing one's opponent of one's own faults.
This writer really has no business talking about the Nursery, or the woman they always attack, and certainly not the nonprofit that has nothing to do with the AVRCD. The people who have supported the nursery and publicized the board's problems have more class, integrity and good works in any one of their pinky nails than the writer of that post will ever be able to comprehend. They are patriots and heroes and the best of Mankind, while people like the writer just look selfish, petty, juvenile, and stupid.
Sometimes in the news or the arts we see the worst kind of public officials, people who abuse their power by stealing public property and public funds, who lie, and who menace citizens. I don't know if we have any of that ilk slurping up slop from the RCD tax-dollar trough, but when public officials attack people personally just because they ask questions about their actions IN PUBLIC OFFICE, then it makes people think they might be of that ilk.
And lastly, if you're such an "outraged" taxpayer, make sure you pay taxes on all that slop.

I, as a taxpayer, am outraged that funds are wasted on this nursery. There are many other good works they could be doing if they weren't appeasing the desires of a bunch of people who probably never buy anything from the nursery anyway. Latest financial report has the nursery in the hole $60,000. Not a good way to spend money. Pull some weeds or restore some habitat, sheesh, even save some Joshua trees. It seems like they throw good money after bad every year. Time to rethink this.
A district attorney's investigation? No, ****** of the ************** was an associate director for a time before she became so disruptive they had to vote her off the board. She has alleged violations of all sorts for the past few years. No findings, just complaints from her. Seems she got her back up after they gave her the boot. I've followed this board for awhile and see their frustration with everything involving the district operations being questioned while the public completely ignores the problems at the nursery. Curious to say the least.
People should be worried about their tax dollars wasted at that nursery. That's got me wondering. Who is behind keeping that nursery open? I've been there and it's not much to write home about.
