Paso Robles needs new beginning
March 26, 2012
OPINION By GARY NEMETH
I’m Gary Nemeth, running for Mayor of Paso Robles because I believe in accountability, integrity, honesty, and trust you the community deserve to expect no less than the best in the leader you hire to represent you.
The voters of Paso will be the real triers of fact in how you want the future of our city to progress.
Our city just paid out $250,000 for an early retirement to Chief Solomon. If you are not satisfied with the status quo, you the individual voter do possess the power to make the changes necessary.
As mayor I would start by changing the city manager and city attorney as I have lost trust and confidence in them both.
At a council workshop on March 24, Mayor Duane Picanco said we needed a special tax to fund programs requiring a two thirds vote, because community members he has spoken to said they did not trust this council if they voted for a general tax. Councilman Nick Gilman said he has heard the same thing. The Council voted to bring back the language for the special ballot vote in November.
One step at a time, one person can make a difference; don’t let others tell you it can’t be done.
