Kent Welton, Dana Point

Banner poles at the north entrance to Dana Point? It’s a very hokey idea.

These banners and their ugly mounting structures will further block the ocean view and distract drivers entering the city who are already confused trying to decide which “couplet” to enter.

We’re already suffering from the city planning idiots that allowed the center at Pacific Coast Highway and Blue Lantern to add a third story and completely destroy the inspiring billion-dollar view we used to enjoy as we rounded the PCH bend into Dana Point.

Forget the banner idea. It’s just stupid, view-crushing, distracting and likely to cause accidents.

  • CITY COUNCIL HIGHLIGHTS on Banner Poles:

    Sorry to say, the sleepy People of Dana Point who vote can’t read, “the sign of our times”. It’s here right now, and it’s just too bad Seniors can’t put the sentences together as well as they put the jig-saw puzzle pictures together. Otherwise, we would not vote for GOP Land Barrons, but vote instead for the next best candidate; the ones who actually show beneficial results.

    FOX WATCHING THE HEN HOUSE: ——————- STEVEN WEINBERG – MAYOR 2013, MAYOR PRO TEM, 2012, MAYOR 2010, MAYOR PRO TEM, 2009, VICE-CHAIRMAN, DANA POINT PLANNING COMMISSION (APRIL – DECEMBER, 2006)** MAYOR PRO TEM; U OF CA, DAVIS B.S. ELECTRICAL ENGINEER; (HE) CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CITY’S OUTSTANDING QUALITY OF LIFE AND HEALTHY BEACHES IN DANA POINT. REPRESENTATIVE, SOUTH ORANGE COUNTY ASSOCIATION OF MAYORS (SOCAM); MANAGEMENT AREA PARTNERS INVESTMENT REVIEW COMMITTEE OCEAN WATER QUALITY SUBCOMMITTEE; REQUIRING STORY POLES FOR ANY VARIANCE REQUEST; DOHENY VILLAGE REPRESENTATIVE REPRESENTATIVE, FOUNDATION FOR THE GREAT PARK; ALTERNATE REPRESENTATIVE, SO. ORANGE COUNTY WATERSHED; ——————-

    Sorry to say that Weinberg represents the very politician ( like Newkirk ) who allowed the over development of the Headlands and still, his $20,000 ‘Land Barron’s Investor Group’ would literally press power political propaganda,** above. And so, we allow this County Real Estate Investor Group / Land Barror’s to play Landlord Partner with the County Supervisors – We measure and show that all oceans are more polluted not less; the Harbor Expansion plan will make tourist turn away for lack of clean recreation waters. *** And so, Mr. Weinberg sails that big Orange Balloon over the Great Park costing all O.C. cities a cost of operations – his ‘Banner Poles; Signs serve only a Real Estate Promo Directional sign to lead the pubic to his/ Harkey’s Lantern Streets rental properties. (As other invested council members; they are vultures, not a valedictorians.

    SHALL WE FLY LISA’S BANNER FOR SUPERVISOR? ——————- LISA BARTLETT – MAYOR RESIDENT OF DANA POINT FOR THE PAST 20+ YEARS HAS WATCHED THE CITY EVOLVE, INTO ONE OF THE MOST DESIRABLE DESTINATION RESORT COMMUNITIES ALONG THE COAST**, HER PARTICIPATION ON REGIONAL BOARDS AND COMMITTEES ALLOWS FOR COLLABORATIVE REGIONAL BASED REPRESENTATION STRIVES FOR FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, ACCOUNTABILITY AND GREATER TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT CERTIFIED PMP (PROJECT MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONAL) AND A LICENSED REAL ESTATE BROKER; SHE IS CURRENTLY A PARTNER IN A REAL ESTATE AND INVESTMENT FIRM. ——————-

    Sorry to say that Bartlett is just as despicable as Weinberg, “She watched as Stands Beach was blocked, RESORT COMMUNITIES ALONG THE COAST**, turned into variable private beach. Where was she when this priceless State and Federal diamond in the rough was being harvested? Oh, that’s right, she works for the Land Barron’s, the Real Estate Investors her action go to show she is a watch dog for her own private FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, her ACCOUNTABILITY now comes to light with all issues, she partners with no D.P. resident wanting to stop over development. ( hotels?) We should start the campaign now, to fly banners to take out both Bartlett and Harkey.

    ——————- WILLIAM P. BROUGH, PREVIOUSLY, BILL SERVED AS CHIEF OF STAFF TO CALIFORNIA STATE ASSEMBLYWOMAN DIANE HARKEY. WHITE HOUSE LIAISON TO THE DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS IN STATE ASSEMBLYWOMAN DIANE HARKEY. , REPRESENTATIVE, SOUTH COAST WATER DISTRICT, WATER AND SEWER; ALTERNATE, SAN JUAN TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR AGENCY ——————-

    STATE ASSEMBLYWOMAN DIANE HARKEY. IN RE: GOP / IN RE: STATE ASSEMBLYWOMAN DIANE HARKEY. Oh, what is it that happened last year in Boston to remind us how a sleepy congress, a sleepy People allowed 100,000 Iraq innocent People to be killed? Did Brough fight with SurfRider / San Clemente people to stop the Beach Toll Road, “No.”. Of all the city council, he is the vulture in eagles clothing. I think we need to appoligize to all Californians for they thought Harkey did a good job in Dana Point. Instead, this Banner Poles / Monument signs stands to promote the Bartlett, Brough, Harkey (low rent, high density; immigrant properties.)

    Oh, what is it that Coucilman Olvera did that is so earth shattering? THE ONSITE PROJECT MANAGER FOR THE BERLIN GEOTHERMAL POWER PLANT IN EL SALVADOR. Oh, he shows up when San Onofre is closing .. hmm?) When Nixon was in Office, he was accused of investing in power and oil in Iran; and that this was the reason for kicking all Americans out, holding some hostage. Hmmm ?)

    ——————- CARLOS N. OLVERA, OATH OF OFFICE DECEMBER 4, 2012. • REPRESENTATIVE LANTERN DISTRICT PROJECT CARLOS’ SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITY INCLUDES BEING APPOINTED TO THE FIRST DANA POINT PLANNING COMMISSION AFTER CITY INCORPORATION IN 1989, HE REMAINS A SUPERVISOR PAT BATES APPOINTEE. CARLOS GRADUATED FROM BRIGHAM YOUNG U 1972 AND DURING HIS 28 YEAR PROFESSIONAL CAREER WAS A REGISTERED PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER, IN ID AND CA, WITH WESTINGHOUSE AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON; HE RETIRED AS VICE PRESIDENT OF ENGINEERING FROM SAI GEOTHERMAL AND WAS THE ONSITE PROJECT MANAGER FOR THE BERLIN GEOTHERMAL POWER PLANT IN EL SALVADOR. ——————-

    Oh, what criticism can be associated with a Banner Sign and councilman Olvera? I think, that the Harbor Redevelopment is going through Bates and Olvera. I think the County wants to get more rent out of the beautifully planned Harbor properties (sadly, with tenants scrapping to make a profit; there will be more parking but less buying public.). Both tourists and local Orange County citizens will drive to Dana Point harbor with new buildings blocking the ocean experience. Why Did Mr. Olvera allow the Parking Building Banner Poles to come down so fast? (Where are photos? Why didn’t the newspaper show this image on the front page? (John V.). Oh, I think that Mr. Olvera will ‘simply go along with the cluster ph#*k-up, so long as the 1% special interests groups have their newly zoned properties zoom up in value; and to heck with the success of local business’.

    SCOTT SCHOEFFEL MAYOR 2011 MAYOR PRO TEM 2010, CITY COUNCIL SINCE 2008, SCOTT PREVIOUSLY SERVED ON THE DANA POINT PLANNING COMMISSION FOR CLOSE TO 12 YEARS; A J.D. DEGREE U OF CA, BERKELEY (BOALT HALL) WHERE HE WAS A MEMBER OF ECOLOGY LAW QUARTERLY. HE HAS BEEN A MEMBER OF THE STATE BAR OF CALIFORNIA SINCE DECEMBER, 1980. SCOTT HAS OVER 28 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AS A HEALTH CARE, REAL ESTATE, LAND USE AND BUSINESS LAWYER. DIRECTOR, SAN JOAQUIN TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR AGENCY (TCA); DOHENY VILLAGE REPRESENTATIVE; SCHOOL DISTRICT ALTERNATE REPRESENTATIVE, TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR AGENCY (TCA) ALTERNATE REPRESENTATIVE, FOOTHILL/EASTERN TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR AGENCY (TCA); DANA POINT DESTINY AD HOC COMMITTEE

    Oh, what criticism can I say. A lawyer. He dares to say he is Ecologically minded. His experience with Dana Point goes back to the 1990’s, the days Dana Point citizens spent great money and time to Recall the Mayor, to campaign horrible ‘lawyer-element’ out of the city business; especially when becoming a city. HEALTH CARE, REAL ESTATE, LAND USE AND BUSINESS LAWYER. DIRECTOR, SAN JOAQUIN TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR AGENCY (TCA); DOHENY VILLAGE REPRESENTATIVE; DANA POINT DESTINY AD HOC COMMITTEE Oh, should I remind you, what these policians do, and we all chose to sleep in and pretend it didn’t happen ( Nixon, Bush(s); SUPERVISOR PAT BATES Mr. Olvera, Bartlett, Brough,
    Harkey ) is to allow the Vultures-in-Eagles clothing to catch our Senior Citizens napping, to capture equity without transparency, which is a generic definition of the profitable loopholes of all government Vendor Contracting ( V.P. Chaney anyone.) On a small scale, these acts of trickery, like posting a ‘Lattern District Sign’ is sheer trickery and deceptive behavior, to promote their own real estate investments.

    Who is running against Bates, Harkey and BARTLETT? WE NEED TO LET ALL PEOPLE OF ORANGE COUNTY KNOW NOT TO RESPECT ANY PERSON OR RESUME COMING OUT OF DANA POINT. Please call Dave Bartholomew 949 388 1827 or email at DaveBartholomew@cox.net.
