Accountability in Politics? Outrageous, Fumes Malibu Council Member Gristanti!

By Malibu resident Paul Taublieb

Thank you Paulie G!  From the mouths of babes, the innocents, the pure, comes truth and honesty.  What better example of that is city council member Paul Grisanti’s recent letter to the editor to our local paper lambasting our mayor Steve Uhring? To recap, at a public city council meeting our mayor took the outlandish and outrageous step of offering a smidgen of politely-stated public criticism towards a staff member who did a wanting job – giving defacto approval to the supremely flawed, non-public serving, ill-conceived and ultimately voted-down motel-pretending-be-a-hotel project down by the pier.  Now, (almost) no one disagrees with the actual shortcomings of the labor, but what G Man thunders so righteously about in his Op Ed is that it was discussed in the open!  In public!  Well, worth mentioning ‘ol PG did vote for the hotel in the 4-1 council loss.  (Though I am a bit confused about a public official criticizing another public official about publicly criticizing a public-serving employee in public. But no matter.)

I mean, as he explains in his missive, who is the mayor to bring up actual, real-world, concrete accountability!  Egads!  I mean, if you need a cozy relationship between staff paid by the city, via taxes, to do the bidding of private real estate interests – Grisanti is correct, that’s bad for business – particularly if you’re a developer and real estate professional, like the Paulster himself, and one who has publicly prided himself on skipping around pesky zoning regs on behalf of his clients.  And in terms of appropriate behavior which Paulie G references, he would definitively know.  He whined like he stepped on a Lego — in public and at public meetings — about the Bruce S kerfuffles way back when, and then happily and shamelessly twice voted for himself to be mayor in unprecedented fashion.  I mean, even more meaningfully, when your track record includes having your real estate licensed pulled for taking advantage of an elderly woman as a fake front in a house sale, he definitively knows whereof he speaks when it comes to proper ethics and decorum!  He’s lived it! He owns it!

So thanks to the original “OG Grisanti” for illuminating how meanie Stevie attempted to bring actual public accountability to a taxes-paid government employee to the awareness of the hoi polloi of the general public!  I mean, accountability while serving in public government in front of the actual living breathing public? Shocking!  Look, we all have to agree with Mr. Gee – so much better to let shoddy, toady work remain un-criticized and behind closed doors for the greater good of a handful of developers who need the hidden machine to work for them!  I mean, lo, imagine if the staff felt they needed to put the public needs first or be mentioned out loud?  Woe is us!  So let us thank The Gris for holding bright the flame against the words of the fabled Supreme Court jurist, Louis Brandeis, “If the broad light of day could be let in upon men’s actions, it would purify them as the sun disinfects.” Nay, let silent complicity remain!  Thank you G-Man!

P.S. Thank you ‘Santi man for making Making Antagonism Great Again! Keep writing, bro!
