The people vote them out of office and they go and give themselves accolades. Headesk.
leaperman - Again you demonstrate your ignorance and disrespect. Dick Pland was not voted out. He retired after winning every election he entered. I listened to the Podcast and what a respectful send off for both. They didn't give themselves anything. People from all walks of life paid a respectful tribute.
Let me ask one question is this county in better shape now then when they came into office??? If your stupid and don't know that the county is about bankrupt well the answer is NO. This county is run by some brilliant business minds???
Call it direspect if you like but some of the worst decisions ever for Tuolumne County were made when those 2 were in office and most if not all of those bad moves were fully supported by them. I have been in attendance at waaaaaaay too many retirement parties where good things were said and praise was heaped onto bad leaders when most in the audience were thinking "good riddance" but were to polite to say it.
Liz Bass and Dick Pland deserve our respect for many many years of selfless public service in local government. Both have devoted countless hours in understanding the issues impacting Tuolumne County and applying their insights and knowledge to adopt reasonable solutions to identified problems and seize opportunities. I commend them for their willingness and ability to serve Tuolumne County and its residents so very well.
Typical conservative restuplicans speak before they have any information!
Sometimes the ignorance of people makes these posts hard to read. I believe if you do not vote you have no business complaining about what goes on in politics.
Dick Pland was and is a very respected and honorable man in politics and in general and deserved to be honored. People like leaperman clearly have no clue!
1hoonose is so right and leaperman621 is sooo wrong!
I'm pretty sure leaperman621 meant L. Bass since D. Pland didn't run. What strikes me funny is how some posters are allowed to insult other posters directly by moniker. I was under the impression that wasn't allowed. If it is, I have a list here of folks that deserve some stronger language.
Crockett, we did almost edit the comment but Leaperman comments much more than anyone and unlike a lot of people would not come back with a vicious attack on 1hoonose. I know neither of them will agree or become friends but I had faith that they could disagree.
When insults slip by we let people defend themselves but I am pretty certain what you want will just become a name calling bitter fight. I suppose I could post a blog or you could open a forum topic here http://forums.mymotherlode.com/ and discus the anonymous commenters publicly.
sabrina, you mistake my inquiry as a request. I DO NOT WANT AN INSULT FEST. I want what liberals want, a level playing field.
Ignorance? NO. Disrespect? YES! Got a problem with that? Too bad. Look at the decisions that have been made under their WISE leadership. The small business owner is broke or living hand to mouth....and look at the STREETS.
It's fricking zombieland.
As for pland...Most of his decisions were fine....it's Bass that I can't stand...and THAT is my right.
Thanks Sabrina. Your comment is correct. We all have the right to disagree. I try NOT to attack the person, and when I comment back at them...like I did a few minutes ago...it's to say that I have the right NOT to respect some public officials.
You can addend that to my last post if you wish..if that will help to make some understand.
No disrespect intended but would somebody please pick up the election signs littering the roads in District 1.
Phoenix Lake Freeway in particular.
Try and avoid crashing into the last few remaining deer, bucks, does and fawns.
