Everyone who thinks City Hall is corrupt and wants to see a real outsider come in and shake things up supports David "Zuma Dogg" Saltsburg. And I mean EVERYONE!

The list is too long to post here.

People are sick of these opportunistic hack politicians who jump from one seat to the next only because they're bought and paid for.

Vote DAVID "Zuma Dogg" Saltsburg for City Council. His only special interest is you, the community member.

*not paid for by anyone.

I'm not backing anyone. In fact, I'm not even voting. Look at all these fools who are voting. Voting must be the wrong thing to do. And I have a feeling I'll be in the majority once again!

If someone wants to buy my vote for a surf and turf, however, that'll work for me.

When you pencil out what these clowns are spending just to sit at a horseshoe listening to clowns three days a week for four years, it would be a lot cheaper just to get me and everyone else a steak and a few shrimps and get it over with.

If you want to send me something I'm not going to throw away in two seconds, at least put a Sizzler senior discount coupon inside!

Phil - at least you didn't call her a freedom hating liberal.

2:25 and 2:32 lie. Must be Mmary. Without her usual keywords, some posts get through.

Bill who eats at Sizzler should start a blog!

Start a blog? I'm kinda new at this Internet stuff, but I already did!

bill eats at sizzler - the blog

Now what should I do? I'm sure not voting for any of these clowns, that's for sure. Maybe my blog should be the Home of LA Political Apathy and Discount Coupons.

Speaking of which, I was really sad when Ralphs cut out their inserts in the Times two weeks ago. Did you notice how Newton got axed right after that? But if Ralphs if you just want to mail me those coupon inserts directly to me now, which I guess suddenly makes more economic sense for them, I'll be glad to use them! You can go ahead and tell me who to vote for, I don't care. Does Ralphs use this blog? Nobody on Foothill reads the Times, Higby--why do you bother talking about it so much?

Hey Mayor Sam,
When the election is done can you do a story on Phil's 2010 run for Congress?

He has a crazy website up that talks about his passion for golf, poker, and all the things that show he is just in this to talk about himself.

BUT the thing I think you should do right away is where he is on the 240,000 signatures needed for an Antonio recall. That's 240,000 VALID signatures.

We all know that he probably doesn't have more than 100 signatures, if that many, that he squandered $30 on a domain that probably is worth $1.99, and that he is going to have egg on his face (again) when he is unable to admit that his effort turned out to be no effort at all.

I think that given his exposure and (sometimes) silly statements on your blog, he gets carried away. But since he spends out time by trying to get us to read these things, he should be asked a follow up by an objective onlooker like you.

It would be great to see you do something on these two stories.

Sí, soy Zuma Dogg. En los últimos años, asistí a muchas de las reuniones del Concejo, y no me gusta lo que veo, no me gusta la forma en que se dirige el Ayuntamiento. Me preocupan el fraude, el derroche, el abuso, el chantaje y la corrupción. Ponga a Zuma Dogg en el Ayuntamiento.
Quiero terminar con la corrupción.

Éstas son las grandes problemáticas que, como
Council, resolveré, y que me plantea la comunidad. En primer lugar, dicen que tenemos que construir todas esas viviendas para alojar a las masas. Bueno, construyeron casas de
lujo, porque eso favorecía a los empresarios y a intereses particulares. Nadie que viva
aquí puede acceder a esa clase de casas, así que la gente debe vivir en las afueras y viajar
hacia aquí para ir al trabajo.

Como CM, Zuma Dogg opina que ya tenemos demasiadas casas sofisticadas y de lujo. Concentrémonos en viviendas modestas a las que los trabajadores puedan acceder, para que la gente pueda vivir en la ciudad, donde trabaja; eso ayudará a reducir el tránsito y ayudará a construir una comunidad. No puede ser que sólo los ricos vivan en la ciudad y que todas las demás personas deban vivir en
otros lugares.

No me gusta lo que veo respecto a las partidas de dinero federales y estatales destinadas a las organizaciones sin fines de lucro. Creo que existe chantaje y corrupción con las
organizaciones sin fines de lucro de toda la ciudad. Como CM, Zuma Dogg dirá que
si recibes partidas de dinero federales y estatales por medio de la Municipalidad, se te
harán auditorías para asegurarnos de que no se trate de organizaciones sin fines de lucro
falsas creadas por los políticos, sus amigos y parientes. Me preocupa que mucho del
dinero no llegue a la comunidad, que se deteriora. Luego vuelven a pedirte más.
Aumentan las tarifas, aumentan los impuestos. Vean los parquímetros. Nuevamente,
quiero asegurarme de que el dinero llegue a la comunidad y que no vaya a manos de los
amigos y compinches de gente con intereses particulares.

Mas to come.

To Jennerjackass, you think you're cute, you're not. At least Price has the class to ignore your ignorant assaults on her. And your rantings have probably helped her candidate. Keep it up, please.

Get a life all. If you want your candidates endorsements listed, send them to Higby. That's what everyone else has done. You are lazy asses if you haven't done this. It doesn't happen by osmosis you know. So whine and whine some more.

Zuma, good luck on Tuesday and I hope that you make the runoff. I think you are the single most important person in this race. The only one who is not, and will never be, indebted to special interests of any kind.

Please show us some real change. You're the only one who can!

Please vote for Zuma on Tuesday!
