Where was ‘The General?’

By From page A5 | June 26, 2013


At a recent Placerville City Council meeting, Council Member Carol Patton bemoans the fact that the same old people show up at the council meetings all the time. Let me replay the last two years for her.

The handful of concerned citizens went door-to-door collecting signatures to put the redevelopment up for a vote. They collected over 1100 signatures.

The judge that let Stockton go into bankruptcy stated that a major factor for their problems was mismanagement of redevelopment.

The head of Placerville redevelopment was David Machado, who is now a convicted felon.

Do I need to say more?

The citizens of Placerville owe these people a big “thank you,” and “well done,” not scorn.
