Politburo marches on. Taxpayers pay.
Fact: city has a $40 million pension debt. $800,000 yearly deficit. Council belt tightening? noooo

Item 10-- a change in city investment policy. Sounds benign? Even boring.. not. Will cost Pacifica taxpayers investment revenue as the city progressive micro manage everything.

“More recently, questions from the community have been raised to the City Council about considering divestiture from fossil fuel and/or weapons manufacturing companies.”

Consent #4-- more $$ to sea level rise consultant to finish work. Presumably because they have to answer massive public objections and not skate thru the effort.

#4 Deirdre, Keener and Digre shoveling more of our tax dollars to their favorite “retreat manager” and faux ocean expert, Bob Battalio.
Irony of ironies. They are forcing our destruction with our money. Trump would be proud.

10. Quarterly Cash and Investment Reconciliation Report, report. a) COP Report, 6/30/18.

Can someone please explain to me. How in the FK does the city claim to have over 25 million in cash? If they have 25 million in cash, why does the city look like a shit hole?

Our city looks like a shit hole because the NOBY cult wants it that way.
It keeps outsiders out and protects the "I got mine's".
All of us nasty capitalists get to pick up the check.
Thanks Deirdre and Cynthia.
