Hopefully, most RPV residents are aware that there are two very important matters on this year’s RPV ballot; Measure B and three (3) Council seats.

PVP Watch URGES RPV taxpayers to VOTE NO on Measure B.

Below is information that supports why NO on Measure B is the best choice for RPV residents and Terranea employees. pvp watch

PVP Watch Recommendations for RPV Council Choices ….

PVP Watch urges RPV voters to vote for Dave Bradley, Dave Emenhiser and Barbara Ferraro.

There is a significant difference between candidates Barbara Ferraro, Dave Emenhiser, Dave Bradley and Ken Dyda and Stephen Perestam.

One alternative could be Ken Dyda and Stephen Perestam joining with current Councilmen John Cruikshank and Eric Alegria. This group has made it known that they believe RPV needs the proposed Civic Center. All have demonstrated that they support unlimited financing without taxpayer approval which some believe could reach $150 million or more.

The better option, in PVP Watch opinion, are Dave Bradley, Dave Emenhiser and Barbara Ferraro. All have, when asked, responded that they believe in better oversight of the City Manager / staff by the Council and improved transparency / oversight of the Council by RPV residents. They are against any debt financing without a vote by RPV taxpayers. It does take a majority of three (3) to implement changes.

pvp watch October 7, 2019 RPV landslide update meeting; Dyda plans to spend some $53 million for the project and he sees no need for taxpayer approval. No approval or oversight for an estimated $53 million project. Mr. Dyda has served this community well for many years but it is time for him to retire.

October 19, 2019 – Ladera Linda community “Meet & Greet” meeting at Ladera Linda Park. Four council candidates attended; Ferraro, Emenhiser, Dyda and Perestam. The proposed new Ladera Linda community facility long opposed by the Ladera Linda homeowners, is now an estimated $12 million project and was a discussion item at the “Meet & Greet.”

Perestam put most of the audience in disbelief with his inference that “that the RPV electorate was too uninformed to understand the intricacies of these multi-million dollar projects so his Council would vote for them without resident input.”

Do taxpayers who pay the bills accept that they will have no vote on a $12 million or $50 million or $150 million debt without resident control?

There are financing options available to a City Council and other similar body’s to obtain large amounts of funding without taxpayer approval. Do RPV residents really want unlimited government control?

PVP Watch Urges RPV Residents – Vote NO on Measure B

The League of Women voters hosted a Measure B at Hesse Park on October 17th. Both the Unite Here 11 union was pvp watch represented as well as Terranea. The union presented the same tired rhetoric that has influenced few. Voters must recognize that the union’s primary interest is union dues.

The union has created this large potential problem should RPV residents not recognize the pitfalls of a YES vote as Terranea employees are NOT interested in membership in the Unite Here 11 union.

RPV – Proposed Civic Center

The RPV Council met on October 15th with the Gensler presentation of their concept for a new Civic Center.

The Council accepted the creation of a Civic Center of eight (8) buildings including a new Council chambers and an employee restaurant. Also included was “direction” for the staff to obtain an architect, pursue an EIR investigation and $25,000 for a consultant to “guide” the process. Mayor Duhovic projected that this could be a $150 million dollar project.

Residents should remember when making their Council votes which candidates want to ignore oversight (Dyda / Perestam) and which candidates support oversight (Emenhiser, Bradley & Ferraro).
