“Incivility” Runs Rampant – A New Work of Fiction by Novato City Manager Regan Candelario

Nice try. The deceptive self-serving “civility” issue fabricated by the Novato City Manager and “the rubber-stamping 3” members of the Novato City Council is nothing more than a silly diversionary tactic to divert people’s attention away from the serious fact that Novato is facing a no-end-in-sight structural financial deficit.

Fryday & Company Threaten to Limit Novato Council Member Information Requests

Let’s cut to the chase.

Voter complacency...

Why Toni Shroyer’s Campaign Gathers Momentum as Arnold’s Slows

Toni Shroyer’s campaign is being enthusiastically embraced by large numbers of Novato residents who feel abandoned by Novato’s current District 5 twelve-year incumbent Judy Arnold whose political ties have, to the detriment of Novato, become overly cozy with the special interests of the three southern Marin supervisors.   During Board of Supervisor deliberations, Novato’s residents’ political interests are taken for granted...

Arnold Forced to Play Defense – For Good Reason

Novato’s struggling District 5 Supervisor is up for re-election and is desperately trying to evade charges by her astute challenger Toni Shroyer that Arnold has shirked her duty to assertively speak up for Novato’s residents.   Under Arnold, Novato families have suffered from new taxes that are expanding at twice the rate of the increases in their paycheck.
