Fresh Ideas in City Hall!

  1. Yes we are the shining city below the hill. Take a drive down 190th towards PCH and you can see the sea shining at the bottom of the hill. How will this council's plans for the Power Plant site affect that? I love the idea of bringing back some of historic Redondo. We have much to be proud of that is not reflected in present day "Recondo" Beach as I call it. Yes I am interested in who will pay for cleaning up the present Power Plant site. We could save a lot of money in Pier Revitalization costs by giving the pier some decent restaurants. And why are all the rental meetings between applicants and the Council closed to the public? How about utilizing Block B for the boat launch and expanding the public use to the entire Harbor area? What happened to The Shade Hotel being built here in Redondo? Did we postpone them into oblivion? At the last City Council meeting they were discussing Federal funds for altering traffic and bike flow and when I asked if those funds could be used to make the bike path continuous into Redondo 1 of the councilmen said it was controlled by measure R and Staff said no it predated measure R. So could we make better use of those Federal Funds or not? And why after years of having 1 of the top 10 blight spots in LA County on Torrance Blvd. are we putting in another car wash? How redundantly pointless can we be? I think unless we get some new ideas and representatives both elected and staff Redondo Beach is headed to becoming a miniature Long Beach! Please no! C.V.

  2. Oh, darn. I was hoping to have a mayoral candidate to vote for who was in favor of Measure A, I just saw you make several reasonable points in the clips on the mayoral debates, but your video above indicates that your is just a joke candidacy.

  3. The above video is from 2004; the recall election where Swartzenegger, an action hero, got in. Talk about a joke. While this video is parody,Ii would like to say to you Greg, I am very serious about my commitment to the residents of Redondo and the removal of that unnecessary powerplant. If you choose not to vote for me that is your choice, but thank you for your consideration either way. - Eric

    1. I appreciate the clarification; it seemed dissimilar from your attitude in the recent debates. You might want to take it down as I really don't think it helps your campaign, but I will leave that to your consideration either way.

      I will vote for you.

  4. Remediation of the AES site is the responsibility of the property owner. Edison will likely have responsibility as well. You can search the citizens' volunteer group channel to watch videos of testimony on these important subjects-- search nopowerplantrb on YouTube to locate our channel. There is testimony from AES Southland President, Eric Pendergraft, admitting tear down will be a net zero cost to AES and that includes remediation of the site. Watch the video for more specifics. Thanks.

  6. What is there to say? I am trying to figure out if you are for real.
    Trump got elected by being rediculous and by really saying nothing. I guess you could too.
    Change is inevitable, realistic change is a must.
    I grew up in this city and I want the power plant to go but I don't want to see another 40,000 - 100,000 new residents taxing our already taxed roads and services. The pier needs to be fixed but bulldozing North Redondo for a parking lot for your Amusement Park.? Now that's an idea I would have never considered.
    Zoning laws have gotten out of control in this city and for what?!... more tax dollars.?!
    This city needs a change but in my opinion you seem to be a wild card Redondo can not afford.

    1. We're going to build the biggest Theme Park in the World! People will come from everywhere and their Euros and Yen and Brightly Colored Seashells will boost our economy to epic heights. Finally we'll be able to pay the police more than every teacher in Los Angeles combined! Where's your vision John and why do you hate law enforcement? Gloriously Wholesome Park is a revolution and not everyone will 'get it'. And that's okay. They called Galileo crazy too. E pur si muove
