The last 2 months in CorrUpland has been so surreal, it’s been virtually impossible to keep up with Upland’s crony ruling class and their corruption. I have literally seen mountains moved so that a local developer could perform due-diligence while contemplating building 650 high density residential housing units, inside two tracts zoned as public parkland. I have seen epic social media bullying which was already so insanely bad, go to another level which may even be criminal, in my opinion. And instead of Upland being the City of Gracious living, the residents have more accurately renamed our fledgling town on Upland Social Media to Dumpland or CorrUpland, take your pick. And there has been so much drama, carnage and chaos unfolding on a daily basis, that I’ll do my very best to retell a tale with so much intrigue and mystery, I should be charging admission to the Worst Show On Earth!!!! So hurry up inside folks, you don’t want to miss a thing, including the Sentinel’s explosive article regarding the issues raised in this report!

The City of Upland is totally off the rails! At the June 25th City Council Meeting, our City Attorney James Markmen lost control of himself and become verbally combative with Councilwoman Janice Elliott yet again. Unfortunately for him, Elliott showed she will no longer take his abuse, so he better learn to check himself! Councilmen Sid Robinson told the free world he is NOT running in 2018 and District 1, is now totally out of luck for no reason! Thanks Sid, couldn’t you have said that on 10/23/17 when you voted for an election schedule scheme, which allowed you to run in 2018, verses you having to wait 2 years to run again, which resulted in 18,050 Upland residents having NO representation at all, on Upland’s City Council?

The City of Upland just SUED its residents who are opposed to the Memorial Park Sale of 4.63 acres to become a future parking structure, which includes the only city council member who voted against the sale, being the CENSURED last week, Janice Elliott.

With an agenda set to publicly humiliate, shame and punish Upland City Councilwoman Janice Elliott, you’d think Upland residents would have been quasi prepared for some of what transpired at the public witch hunt that lasted all night, with residents finally returning to their homes at nearly midnight!

The Upland City Council meeting on 3/26 was yet another fiasco for The City of Upland! The meeting’s agenda lacked all transparency, stating the property for sale was located at 1299 San Bernardino Rd, yet omitted the words MEMORIAL PARK! The sale of 4.63 acres of public park, open space for $4.2 MILLION DOLLARS, lacked a PUBLIC HEARING & A VOTE BY THE RESIDENTS OF UPLAND! And the front page of the city’s agenda, stated it was posted for public view, in accordance with the law, 72 hours before the city council meeting, in the State of Hawaii!

Timm has served on the Planning Commission for 16 years and was elected to city council in 2014. She is currently running for reelection in the newly created Upland District 4, as is Gino Filippi, in Upland District 3. Join your districts, here.
