We need to remember the sole reason we are faced with this crisis is because of the actions of Mayor Cy Sun. He may be sincere, but he is unwilling to learn how to effectively govern. We deeply respect his service to our country as a war veteran, but Pacific is not a battlefield filled with enemies to kill. We are people who want to live in peace and raise our children in security.
Even though the council has agreed to fill three of the seven critical vacancies finally brought forward by the mayor, the crisis is far from over. The mayor has created a harsh,unstable working environment. It is challenging to attract any qualified applicants right now, or for Mayor Sun to agree to hire qualified people. We are nowhere close to ensuring we have satisfied the insurance company and the city will have coverage on January 1, 2013.
In the midst of the crisis, Cy Sun has chosen to spend precious time and energy to fight the recall petition and delay a vote - despite stating he would welcome the voter's decision. His decision to fight the recall rather than focus on governing this city speaks volumes about his true motives. Remember why we are in this crisis and who is responsible. And then help us restore sanity to this city while there is still time. Email us a firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help.
