Protest Rally at the Park & Ride lot located at the entrance into Old Town Orcutt on Saturday, May 21, 2011 (Armed Forces Day) at 2:00 P.M.
I talked to Senator Strickland's office Thursday and his Bill No. 443 does not look like it will get out the Senate Appropriation's Committee.
The Chairman of that committee is Christine Kehoe from San Diego. She is a career politician, she was termed out of the State Assembly and will soon be termed out of the State Senate. She is most likely setting herself up to run for the Mayor of San Diego.
Caltrans has a 4.5 billion dollar project in the works for San Diego and Kehoe has a Bill that is massaging that project.
Kehoe was the only Senator to vote against our Veterans' Memorial and our right to fly the American flag in the Senate Transportation Committee. She chairs the Senate Appropriation Committee.
Guess what Orcutt, if Kehoe has her way San Diego gets what they want from Caltrans, Kehoe becomes Mayor and we get nothing...no American flag...No Veterans' Memorial.
