Will the Walnut City Council disband the committee if a few members tell the truth about something, like they did with the NFL Stadium Task Force committee a few years ago? Don't Pacheco, Su, Tragerz and Cartega know everything already? They act like they do. They thought the red-light-ticket camera was great for business in Walnut, you mean they were wrong for 8 years?

Michael the red light camera is not an issue. Didn't the last election prove that? The City Council is asking for help from the citizens that care to make a difference. Since you seem to know everything why don't you step up and do something for the community? Sitting at a keyboard and unloading your unsupported crap does absolutely nothing to help our community grow and prosper.

JM, Well said. At some point we all need to move on. To keep cutting and pasting the same old statements over and over does no one any good. The cameras are gone, most of the council that originally voted for them have moved on. We all need to let it go and move on. I would say the same thing if someone decides to start a new argument to bring them back. Look forward, not back. Until the football stadium becomes a real issue again, let that go also. We all know the chances of that happening is slim to none and slim just left town. In fact, the grading of the parcel has begun to implement "Plan B."
