TROIANI PLAYS GAMES ON IMPACT FEES, and CAMARILLO DECLARES, "LET THEM DRINK SEWAGE, WE MUST SAVE THE DEVELOPERS"

Here is what I said after the first vote on Impact Fees.

"On Wednesday night Mayor Ahumada was by all accounts the people’s advocate. He knew his business and advocated for the best interests of the people. The same cannot be said of Camarillo or Cisneros. The one most likely to pay the big price is Troiani. Mayor Ahumada made a clear record to show how Troiani was obfuscating the issue of rate increases. The PUB representatives get an "F" for their failure to be clear on this issue. It allowed Troiani to try and hide behind their lack of clarity. In the end in two years if the Commission has to vote a rate increase, it will be on Troiani’s back and he will be voted out of office."

"Commissioner Anthony Troiani told fellow commissioners that the commission's recent and first vote of approval had been under the belief that adopting the fee at $2,600 a lot would not require an increase in water and sewer rates for a five-year period."I took that to the bank," Troiani said.." The above is from the Brownsville Herald.

Further from the Herald: "Troiani said that he doesn't want to see rate increases.
"I think it is difficult for a large majority of our population to make their water and electric bill," Troiani said."

Il Duce Troiani thought he would get away with confusing everyone. On Tuesday he could no longer claim ignorance. Now he is running to safe his own butt.

This is our City Commission and this is why we are so screwed. Ms. Miller needs to take Camarillo to task for his incredulous defense of the millionaire developers. Ms. Miller just may have the issue to get her over the top. Camarillo’s contempt for the poor people of Brownsville. Camarillo’s motto is, "Let them drink sewage, we must save the developers." Give Camarillo hell Ms. Miller.

Has Commissioner Troiani ever met an issue he didn't want to table??
