Political Notebook

OK, for what it’s worth, this is what I’m hearing around town:

I’m hearing that Allen Settle, former SLO mayor and current councilmember is mulling over a possible challenge to Jerry Lenthall in ’08 in the District III supervisor race. Settle thinks he can win; others aren’t so sure.

Also, as I mentioned on the radio yesterday, petitions are circulating around Pismo Beach to recall controversial council member Bill Rabenaldt.

    Can’t Alan Settle just go away and give somebody else a chance. He’s a know-it-all talking machine who’s been gravy training public money for decades.

    –$6000 ethics fine, after confict of interest votes and secret dealing with Bill Bird.

    –26 years as a public “windsock” and a windbag.

    –Doesn’t properly disclose all his financial holdings (which amount to
    a small fortune in property throughout the county and state)

    –Actually lives in Arroyo Grande, District 2.

    But other than that, great candidate. No wonder the Dem party is so weak locally.

    Lord help us!

    Look up HACK in the dictionary.

    Then look up DUMBASS.

    Now you have Settle vs. Lenthall.

    Do we have to settle for this?

    ALAN SETTLE? WINDSOCK SETTLE? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING! ALEX MADONNA IS ROLLING OVER IN HIS GRAVE (GOD REST HIS SOUL).
    THIS SETTLE CLOWN HAS BEEN TRAVELING THE STATE IN HIS OFFICIAL CAPACITY AS MAYOR GETTING TIPS FROM HIS “GOOD OLD BOY” COUNTERPARTS ON THE HOT AREAS FOR GROWTH IN THEIR AREAS AND THEN BUYING SAID PROPERTIES WITH ANOTHER VERY VISUAL LOCAL PERSON AND RAKING IN THE MONEY WHEN THE TOWN IN FACT DOES GROW THERE!
    HE ALSO SITS IN A LAP OF LUXURY PROVIDED BY THE TAX PAYERS IN A “TEACHING” JOB AT CAL POLY…WHAT DO THINK HIS WORK WEEK CONSISTS OF? 20 HOURS? 15? 10? AND HIS STUDENT AIDES DO THE REST.
    HE SHOULD BE IN JAIL NOT IN ANOTHER TAX SUPPORTED JOB!
    KICK HIM TO THE CURB AND LET HIM RETIRE ON HIS $25,000 A MONTH FROM THE STATE AND HIS RENTAL PROPERTIES.
    IF HE DOES RUN…PLEASE! PLEASE SOMEBODY TELL HIM THE COMB-OVER WAS DEAD IN THE 70’S!

    Weird to say it, but I agree with Jerry Dagna’s comments above.

    A quick search yields 9 different houses in Settle’s name–4 in SLO, 1 in AG, 1 in Atascedero, 1 in Los Osos (Guess he’s reserving the right to run in the District if his choosing), 1 in Groveland, and 1 in Laguna Beach.

    Not bad for a college professor, ay?

    Settle may not be my idea of a good supe, but can anyone tell me what Jerry Lenthall has accomplished in the last two years, other than cozying up to fat cat developers??

    This is the guy repping slow-growth SLO Town?????

    If it’s Lenthall vs Settle,
    then it’s none of the above for me.
    I do not trust either of them.

    Time for new blood.

    IN TODAY’S ECONOMIC POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT IN CALIFORNIA ANY DECENT SUPERVISOR SHOULD BE LOOKING HARD AT ANY NEW AND SUSTAINABLE SOURCE OF REVENUE. CALL IT “COZYING UP TO FAT CAT DEVELOPERS” IF YOU WANT…BUT ANSWER ME THIS…IF THE NEW SOURCES OF REVENUE DON’T COME FROM DEVELOPMENT THEN WHERE? THAT IS THE RUB AND IT BEGS THE QUESTION, HOW WILL SLO COUNTY CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SERVICES IN A ZERO GROWTH ENVIRONMENT? PROPERTY TAX INCREASES WILL NEVER PASS…SALES TAX INCREASES WILL SEND BIG TICKET SHOPPERS OUT OF THE AREA.
    IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS SALLY UP TO THE BAR AND SPILL YOUR BEANS!
    LENTHAL IS JUST DOING HIS JOB.

    AS FOR SETTLE…HE HAS ZERO INTEGRITY, AND I QUESTION HIS ETHICS…OR SHOULD I JUST SAY HE IS A LIAR AND A CROOK!

    Just saw this:

    If we had a real press in our county, we`d know why Lenthall served in the SLO PD for 30 years and never got above seargent–see: graft and brutality complaints.

    And we`d know how Settle turned 20 plus years in city governments into sweetheart deal after sweetheart deal–total crook.

    BAD BAD BAD for us if this is the race.

    What about the illegal gradeing Settle did on his neighbors’ property – without their permission!!
