The Encinitas Guerrilla's blog and email have been blocked.
There appears to be no limit to the treacherous reach of the Guerrilla's opponents.
This week's entry is attached should you care to post it on Encinitas Undercover.
We hope the Guerrilla is back to health soon! In the meantime, here's the post:
Hmm, What Can I Do to Make Myself Even More Unpopular?
The list of my transgressions and doing the opposite of what Encinitas residents want is so long and thorough that it’s hard to come up with other things to do to increase my unpopularity.
However, I have a few ideas.
I could push to reduce El Camino Real from six lanes to four and to shrink Encinitas Boulevard and South Coast Highway 101 from four lanes to two. Since there’s been such an outcry against reducing North Coast Highway 101 from four lanes to two, I’m sure the other road diets would be seen as an outrage.
Next, I could support the 69-foot, 277-unit apartment complex in Olivenhain and advocate for similar development at all the other HEU sites. That would go deeper than merely getting under residents’ skin.
Audience applause for people who speak during Oral Communications and to agenda items really bugs me. I say the clapping disrupts the meetings and makes them longer, but that’s not the real reason I object. The council and staff almost never get applause, and sincere praise from a speaker is rare. That justifies my anger.
So I’m thinking about strictly enforcing jazz hands and forbidding audience members from talking to each other and passing notes among themselves. That should really stick in their craw.
But I’ve saved my best unpopularity gambit for last. Banning surfing could be my zenith move. Maybe I can inch up to a ban by starting with restricting surfing to certain hours of the day. Eventually, a full ban would achieve my goal of being the most unpopular mayor since incorporation.
