PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS hired to 'investigate' private citizens is not new to So. Bay politics - Sweetwaters Superintendent used such practices - and Mr. McCann was on the SUHSD Board at the time - I know AS I WAS ONE OF THOSE INVESTGATED. a senior citizen who joined others is speaking up and demanding better representation.

Now that is about as self serving as a response as I have ever read. Controversy is no stranger to Mr. McCann - and ,,,,, unless you live under a rock you, like me, have read all about THEM.

Something tells me Mr. McCann has not had to ENGRAIN anything, nada, nil in to his staff and the inference is disrespectful to those City employees.

I find it amazing that foul was called on the Star News - funny, those McCann articles that were positive show McCann grinning like a Cheshire Cat.

These are my opinions - and if I may allow me one more - I am growing tired of McCann - CV residents/property owners are deserving of political representation that does not include controversy.

Nice response Councilwoman Melissa Martin...oh wait...you are just a staffer for John? Oh Chief of Staff for a part time councilman. Lol. Why isn't the Councilman responding? That guy is scared of his own shadow. Run John run....time is running out for you.

Although it's valient (and expected I'm sure) that Ms. Martin comes to McCann's defense, she needs to understand he generates news and it swirls around him like the character on Charlie Brown who always has dirt swirling around him. Whether it was as a Sweetwater trustee who filed restraining orders against parents, threatened parents, newspapers and reporters with defamation lawsuits, accepted large campaign contributions from contractors and then selected them to work on district projects, or as City Councilman and all the news and controversy he creates. He is his own worst enemy. I commend Mr MORENO for reporting this story as it involves an elected official and we have a right to know what he is doing with his time that we pay for, and the risks he puts the City and taxpayers in with his antics!!

It's unfortunate for us CV residents that we have this man on the Council. He has a poor record as an elected official. From taking contributions from contractors then awarding them contracts, filing restraining orders against parents, threatening to sue parents and local newspapers for defamation - all as a Sweetwater trustee, then throwing a rock at a citizen, to this and more as a councilman. When will the residents of CV wake up and not elect this man.

Carlos-Thank you for your nice tribute to Tom. I was a friend and co-worker with Tom in his early days with CVPD some 45 years ago. We maintained our friendship even though we both went our separate ways in Law Enforcement. I have a picture of Tom next to my computer to remind me of the humor and good he brought in my life.

It is indeed a puzzle don't you all think? An investigation that allegedly didn't investigate. What is a taxpayer to do - maybe it is time for a new direction - one that provides leadership that doesn't come with baggage or allegations!

Another Republican Official with allegations. We need more democratic leadership in the South Bay Area. Also to all educators, don't forget to vote for Teacher of the Year this week!

Oh Johnny Boy....the walls are closing in on you. Ethical misconduct, bad leadership at Sweetwater and illegal debt. More to come? I would put money on it...

All the more reason for all of us who do care about where we live to hold our government accountable--locally and beyond local borders.

When those in charge have different rules and requirements for themselves and see community members as lesser individuals who can be ignored, fooled, robbed (by virtue of not giving them what tax dollars are supposed to pay for) and poisoned, we are living in a nightmare.

Don't think it can't happen here. Just try and get a response from your local council member on any issue. See what happens, and let people know.

Appears that McCann made a request of a staff member that was (at best) in a grey area legally. That staff member felt uncomfortable and so expressed that, and then the staff member was maneuvered into a situation whereby it could be argued he abandoned his job--but he was scheduled to be on vacation.

Gosh, who'd be that low?

I guess there is only one answer.
