So this is what we might have to look forward too, OMG just another one of Mr. McCanns meltdowns. This is pathetic.

Just received Mr. Padilla's most recent flier - it appears Mc Cann's proposed law suit may have a couple hiccups - remember McCann's Grand Jury testimony and those pesky campaign financial statements - well,,,, it appears copies of the ACTUAL documents are shown in the flier - so what next? With the Grand Jury and Registrar of Voters be named as defendants in McCann's lawsuit - inquiring minds are wondering.

Have you read McCann's Grand Jury testimony - it is well worth your time if you intend on voting for McCann.

My apologies to my last message and all my vulgar messages in the past. These handsome men at the board meetings anger me with their actions. Most of the time, men acknowledge me and my beauty.

Did you see the dyer from Padilla yesterday? I wonder how long it will take McCann to send him a cease and desist letter?? We know he can't handle the facts!

McCann defended Bleisch. I on the other hand will get free tortas and torelini for lunch. Yummy!

First and foremost the post by Ensenadamaria above is an effort to reflect opinions that are not mine. I am Ensenadamaria. While Bertha and I did not always agree she was identified as the Board member who was constantly at war with the other four. John and Jim close long time friends who voted with Arlie. Very few, if any Board votes not voted on unanimously by the three. John is a little guy who gives us a bad name.

It is cowardly to go to these great lengths to distort the truth by disguising ones self as another. Your lack of character is exposed and therefore anything you have to say should be viewed as dribble.

At least McCann wasn't as corrupt as Bertha Lopez

The problem with the Sweetwater board is that there's too many republicans. Republicans won't give teachers raises. If we want a fresh start, the South Bay community needs to vote democrat. Look at the San Diego City school district. They are thriving under democratic leadership. Vote for Scott Peters for city council.

Had enough citizens of South Bay? Vote democrat!

McCann now gets to add another accomplishment to his list:

Apprentice Historical Revisionist


Because each and everything he has said in this interview can be refuted by the minutes and reports that exist. And even if McCann destroys all the historical evidence, he can make all the assertions he likes, but those assertions have nothing to do with the truth. We happen to remember the truth.

McCann fancies himself as a leader who gets things done, but the only thing he has accomplished is getting himself elected. I hope we are done with that.

Wanted to extend my Thanks and Appreciation to Fran Brinkman for her ROBO call that informed Chula Vista residents about the real John McCann!

Funny how McCann continues to hide behind news articles but has FAILED to debate Mr. Padilla - maybe there is a hidden reason why he is afraid to appear in PUBLIC, face the PUBLIC and debate the issues in PUBLIC.

Since John decided to single me out in this story, let me help refresh his memory surrounding the threatening cease and desist letter he had sent to me.

The letter came from attorney Christina M. Denning of the San Diego law firm of Higgs, Fletcher & Mack. Although they don't list Sweetwater High School District as clients, they do list SD Unified, so they obviously work with school districts.

As far as his reasoning for the letter, I hurt his feelings when I posted blogs about his accident, questioning his mental clarity and acuity. I did so after observing him at a board meeting not being able to remember Tom Calhoun's name (Ed Brand had to lean over to remind him), and observing Ed Brand having to lean over and tell him when it was time to vote.

As far as HIPPA violations, this comment clearly shows he lacks the ability to grasp basic concepts. As most know, HIPPA is a law which protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information. I was and am in no position to have any private information on his health, treatments or medical conditions.

John seems to forget that he went around town telling everyone that would listen and interview him that he had suffered a serious brain injury. John, did you violate HIPPA against yourself?? All I did was state an opinion about my observations relating to your telling the world you suffered a serious brain injury.

As far as him being a fiscal conservative, that is as big of a joke as him being a team player or him not recalling the other cease and desist letters against community members, or the restraining order filed against a parent, which he lost.

John, claim to be a fiscal conservative, so why did you support the raising of the Mello Roos tax by 2% every year? Not even a comment or discussion. Why did you allow the district to borrow upwards of $25 million every month from the Mello Roos fund to help pay general expenses? Again, no questions or discussion. Why did you allow the district to borrow from Prop O. Why did you approve hundreds of thousands of dollars in change orders from the same contractors that contributed to your campaign?

On open boundaries, why did you allow Ed Brand to do this when you knew it would create the massive overcrowding we have at eastside schools. You know this is the case because you have and have had children at Eastlake High. I've seen you at Open Houses and you know how crowded and run down the school is.

In my opinion, based on observation and interaction with John McCann since 2009, he is a terrible choice for City Council.

The true character of a person is not in his words, but in his actions and how he reacts to adversity. John makes empty promises, acts contrary to what he says, and uses the system to go after those that don't agree or criticize him.

As a matter of fact, I won't be surprised if he does not have another letter sent to me threatening to sue me. If so, I will share it to prove the true character of John McCann.
