Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
The Manteca City Council meeting on May 16 had a short and to the point report on the recent trip to Washington, D.C., concerning the San Joaquin County Council of Governments’ One Voice effort.
Councilman Gary Singh said it was nothing but “meetings, meetings.” Councilman Mike Morowit joined Singh in also reporting it was nothing but meetings.
It must have been a vacation for Mayor Steve DeBrum as he said nothing about more meetings. I am sure it was not all work and no sightseeing.
The three must have had it real rough. Councilman Richard Silverman had said DeBrum, Singh and Morowit would be working hard on asking for funds for the 120 Bypass and Highway 99 interchange work. Why is our council concerned about something that should be a Caltrans issue and not a council issue?
This council should be more concerned about “in town issues” such as street work, sidewalk work, and numerous other issues regarding safety all over town. If the four are so concerned about Caltrans’ area of responsibility then perhaps they should all resign from the Manteca City Council and seek work as Caltrans safety engineers.
