    It’s very troubling that Verder-Aliga was elected to the city council. It does not bode well for Vallejo. Here we have someone who sat on the school board and claimed to have accounting skills. During her tenure on the school board criminal tampering with the books occurred and the State had to come in take over one of our most basic community functions: educating our children. Verder-Aliga had the unmitigated gall to insist that we, the taxpayers, provide her with a lifetime retirement benefit for doing a volunteer job that does not provide this benefit. Unbelievably the school board acquiesced and gave it to her. I would encourage anyone with knowledge of this episode to post it for others to read and learn.

    I did not observe Ms. Verder-Aliga’s behavior the other night but if it is true that she was condescending, arrogant and disrespectful of the TAXPAYERS in attendance then I suggest she is unfit for public service. The most dangerous aspect of Verder-Aliga “service” may be her ability to get elected based on her ethnicity. I fervently hope and pray that the Filipino community in Vallejo is educated and informed enough to select quality leaders from within their ranks.

      For once I agree with Bong Hit!
      Ms. Verder-Aliga is just a pawn and has no ability to think on her own. She mentioned she has a thick skin but I disagree! She has a thick skull!!!

        @ I Love Vallejo:

        I may sympathize with you conclusion concerning Councilor V-A, but I don’t agree that she has a thick skull. She is not a dumb lady but she bases her logic on a false premise- that she simply has a responsibility to those who elected her in a hard fought election. There is more to it than simply developing a thick skin and satisfying election agendas.

        As an elected and sworn representative of the community she has a duty and an ethical responsibility to the community at large. Far right, far left, black,white,filipino, gay or bi-sexual, hip hop or line dancing, regardless of platform, bloc,alliance or good old boys, the proper and ethical responsibility of any elected public servant rep is to save all from harm and to promote well-being for all, accomplished within the framework of a bureaucracy that does not survive on, or depend upon term limits or petty value differences. A daunting undertaking.

        Why daunting ? Because it is up to seven temporary reps to interface meaningfully with an organization established generations ago and whose sole design is to be around for the indefinite future. providing efficiency and effectiveness; certainty and continuity. It’s what they do. You may question how well they do (the 2 E’s and C’s), but it is what they do and what must be done when faced with the complexities of modern society.

        All the more reason for the V-A’s of the world to understand that they have a limited and time certain opportunity to conjoin community values with an organization that doesn’t recognize “values” for its existence. Conjoining doesn’t flow from a thick skin or skull. It does occur through a consensus of values translated into policy as a guide to the valueless and soulless organization.

        Councillor V-A in not dumb. But she does lack an understanding and appreciation for her solemn public service duty and role as one of seven in shaping policy. I.M.O.

        Oh man! That Rozz lady is gonna be dodging karma her whole term. She is useless like cold wet noodle at Sunday brunch. I date say she is a few DNA instructions away from being an absolute lump on a log. I almost feel sorry for her being so simple and actually hired for the job of looking after a city. I wish her no ill will, just hope she figures out that the people who elected her are not the fittest intellects on the planet. She engages in cronyism and dramatic displays of out bursts agains the public. Apologizing for the citizens to Chick Fillet? Like a pie in the face to the whole city having a mouthy tool like her in office. At least she’s entertaining.

    Whether they understand or not (some do, some become aware) there is an ethic of responsibility in public service governance and it is a foundational principle in the relationship between our seven elected lay representatives and the legal rational formal organization known as the “system” or “the bureaucracy” or simply “City Hall” led by a city manager. An ethic of responsibility is the interface between warm community values (passion) and the cool calculated world of the system built on policy, rules and regulation.

    And this is where elected reps get in to trouble- balancing the need to develop strict cool proportional organizational policy with their singular most crucial role of infusing community values into that development. It is a tough job and it is the wise representative indeed that can demonstrate that understanding. This is what makes politics watching interesting, in my opinion.

    In the latest political theatre there has been an abundance of ethical responsible behavior demonstrated that bodes well for Vallejo’s general welfare….with two notable exceptions.

    IMO.

    I would much prefer a thin skinned rep to a hard nosed one. Show me the passion please…that is what we electorate are all about.

    Some one should put a recall on the ballot for the Osby, he is a clown at best. sitting in that room you can see how disconnected the Mayor is from reality. People like him lead cults of needy ill informed simple minded genetically challenged low intellect zombies who drink Kool aid. We have enough of the dull people public working in power here look at Ubalde. It is like a gang of dumb. An army of the least qualified. A horde of absolute vaporous chasm between the ears bobble headed bad DNA carrying tools. May darwin win…after a generation something should take them out of the gene pool….please nature do it.

    A little harsh there Linda, but understandable.

    A don’t consider Mayor Davis, or his new found supporter shoe lady to be dumb. Shrewd p’raps. A trckster or manipulator maybe. Street smart, conniver or wily comes to mind. But dumb? I don’t think so.

    But here is the neat thing about representative democracy. Some of the most effective politicians have been as dumb as a box of rocks. What has made them successful, appreciated and even loved was an ability to demonstrate an ethic of responsibility to the organization AND AT THE SAME TIME those publics they represent, made all the more effective, when combined with an ability to reach a consensus ,as admirably demonstrated by Sampayan the other night.

    Sampayan broke his cherry on this issue, an event hopefully not lost to his Council colleagues.

    Salty Dog has made some great points, e.g., Queen Rozilla has not yet grasped the idea that once elected, she’s supposed to serve ALL Vallejoans, not just those who paid for her campaign. I’m not sure I’d give her a pass on the thick skull comment though. Or, if she’s not dumb, maybe she’s just lazy. Hmm, yes, that might be it. She shows little sign of actually reading Council info or thinking about her votes. But hey, she has great hair and shoes, what’s not to like?

    Rozzilla is getting skinned by the rapier wits here on VIB, and frankly, she deserves it. She seem unclear on the “public” part of public service, as in, we deserve a seat at the table too, so don’t dismiss our input. And please, spend less time on your grooming, and more on Council business. Try paying attention during meetings, it would be a tiny improvement. Soon you might read the Council packets and everything, wow, look at all that information!

    Another Salty Dog wisdom is that Oz likewise is not dumb per se. He does lack integrity and morals, but that’s another matter. It’s just in this strong mayor go-round, his ego and greed blinded him. He thought he had 4 votes in the bag, but thankfully even Jess & Pippin thought that rushing a Charter Revision to ballot was a bad process. If anyone deserves the claim “courage under fire,” they do, as clearly they were pained to be at odds with Oz, but he was asking them to do something that was a bad process. We shouldn’t kid ourselves, though — had Oz not tried to cram this through with so little time, he would have had the bloc vote.

    Salty D you are spot on with your opinion ….and so early in the morning to boot!

    I believe people confuse others who are not of like mind and marching to the orders of a different drummer/handler, as dumb. Far from it, they are calculating scheming individuals, especially those that we know to have had a checkered past, but received votes of confidents to continue to form our cities future.
    I also believe that we continue to elect people not by their abilities to serve and guide All of US, but instead serve certain groups who through their vote for said individual demand pay back for the favor. The idea to have a person of the same ethnic/racial background as I may have in a seat of power, may instill a sense of pride, however from another angle it may be construed as treating those favorably over others when decision making time rolls around. It is unfortunate, but is expected in some circles.

    How else could an individual such as Ms. V-A with a very special track record to call her own, receive the peoples trust? She was asleep at the wheel when the people entrusted/placed her to guide the VCUSD as a board member and later as their president. She failed as a leader! But it appears that did not matter to those that returned her to an equally important position at CoV level.

    As I see it, the vote cast by Ms. V-A last Tuesday was not just to support the mayor’s request and sending a message to the mayors supporters that she was with them, but was intended for a future person (most likely herself) occupying the full time mayor position.
    After all, looking to the future is far more lucrative than remaining in the present. Just imagine the prestige in the Filipino community if one of their own, a female on top of that, would occupy the mayoral position full time?

    Having many neighbors of Filipino descent and speaking with a business associate in Manila when the disastrous deadly storm hit months ago, I asked how I/we could help them. His answer was to not donate anything through the normal channels as the government was corrupt and the well intended “gifts of support” would not end up to help The People. Corruption and self serving comes to mind and it is unfortunate that the habit is hard to break even as it is accepted as the norm.

    I keep wondering how is it that an ethnic group that is educated & hard-working, one with some of the most accomplished kids in town — how can this same group support folks like Hermie & Rozilla? Jess at least has analytical abilities, even if I disagree with his love for casinos. But Hermie and Queen Roz distinguish themselves by not paying attention, and not doing the work. Surely there are more qualified Fil-Am leaders who could step forward. Please!

        Pourquoi? Parce que.

        Regardez dans la miroir.

        Few people understand, or want to examine the rationale for locally elected representation. Even fewer understand the statutory as well as moral obligation bestowed when successfully elected. And facilitating that understanding may be a responsibility we all share before an election takes place..

          Salute to you Salty.

          May the wind be at your back and the sea be a pleasant goddess this night. This is one of Vallejo’s finest evenings. Cool, after a warm day, blessed by the water at our shore.

            Amen.

            We truly are blessed with a location and climate that is under rated.

            Just like clockwork,even on the hottest days, we can almost always count on that cooling on shore breeze to creep in under the Golden Gate and waft its way with no impediment across San Pablo Bay and deliver cooling relief in preparation for the next day.
