Why does Mr. McCann and his staff continually waste the time of reporters whining and crying foul. Maybe he and his staff should put more time and effort into their work and promises instead of this. Mr. McCann I believe promised no more tolls on the 125 and a business in Albersons among so many other empty promises just to get elected. What a waste of a council seat he is a disappointment yet again. He says a lot but does nothing and it looks like his staff is learning from him.

What more can be said? Just that the general public does not seem to give much credence to McCann's claims, or counter-claims.

He sure seems to get support from the judicial branch, however. Now there's a puzzle for one and all.

Without commenting on this particular matter, Kevinbutthole above argues that because there is another allegation against a Republican that we need more Democrats in office. May I remind him/her that most of the Sweetwater District's trustees that were convicted were Democrats. Ben Hueso, sentenced for a charge of alcohol related reckless driving, is a Democrat. All of the San Diego City Council's 2005 convicted councilmen were Democrats. May I also point out that South Bay governance is dominated by Democrats, I believe all South Bay cities' councils, Southwestern College's Board of Trustees, etc.

Despite the dominance of convicted Democrats in San Diego governance, I overlook that and look at the individual. We've seen members of both parties convicted around the country. I don't think a political party is a determinant or predictor of legal or ethical behavior. That lies with the individuals.

Have your political party preference, but get your facts straight before unfairly broad-brushing other groups and reaching unreasonable conclusions based on incorrect facts.

Republican camps like McCanns get made at informative information. We need more democrats to support informative stories like this. This is a good start, but continue the trend. Write stories about government employees that manipulate the benefits. For example, if a teacher continues to destroy the school bathrooms with his stench and other miscellaneous objects, write about it. If a teacher continues to have bad breath and his employees and students have to suffer and deal with it, write about it. Its not fair.

If Ms. Martin truly wrote that letter, she is wasting her time as a part time staffer and should be a lawyer. McCann's camp complaining just shows a nerve has been hit. Considering McCann's past history, there is probably a lot more the taxpayers should know about what goes on in his office. Moreno wrote a good and informative article in his usually fair, balanced, and neutral style that should motivate us to demand more transparency from our elected and city government. A good place to start is with McCann.

Typical McCann rather than allow the initial Derrick Roach to die, he decided to have his staff member draft a rebuttal (at least it wasn't one of the boring 2 page bios parents were forced to listen to at football games). 'Star News must raise its standards', - oh contrar!

We are in the midst of elections, and even though Mayor Salas's term has 2 remaining years I would not be surprised to see McCann signs springing up all over our city soon.

While the 'McCann camp' envisions him as the next new Mayor the drums of the city are beating - the message not only NO, BUT HELL NO!!

A list is being made of all of the controversies in the past 10 years and while I have witnessed the majority of them, I have to tell you, even if I was a novice, reading the list would eliminate him from consideration.

TIME TO START LOOKING TO RETIRE FROM POLITICS - I understand FOX is looking for a new reality show and I have just the candidate!!!

First off I want to THANK Mr Moreno & TheStarNews for constantly reporting on our Local Government. We count on him and this newspaper to help keep our elected officials accountable.
Frankly if it weren't for the shady ways John has conducted business we wouldn't have the need to know we have now! Whether while holding office on OUR school district or bouncing back and forth on OUR city council, John McCann has raised many concerns. Self-serving and PREJUDICIAL are two terms that describe John's Legacy he's to leave us. The one word I associate with the StarNews Article Mr Moreno wrote is INVESTIGATIVE.
How about the fact that the StarNews even published this response article was TRANSPARENT & UNBIASED or their JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY was displayed! Ms Martin should try to spend some time teaching her boss these wonderful traits along with ETHICS. We'd all benefit from this!
I find it so typical politics when we see use of this tactic! Get Caught and Scrutinize The Messenger To Shift The Spotlight Away.
Let's focus on the claims of WE THE TAX PAYERS are paying for John to further his Political Career. Other fact to further investigate is the process in place that dealt with this & other claims of this sort that may come!
Let's move on term limits ASAP. Both at SUHSD & CVCC! I'm sure John will go to SWCC & then Sweetwater Authority when this happens......

Tabloid? Star News? C'mon man. Martin, that would be the SD Reader

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.
