On March 26, 2018, our insane former city council voted three to one, to sell 4.63 acres of Memorial Park to San Antonio Hospital for $4,200,000.00. Those voting in favor were Mayor Debbie Stone, Mayor Pro Tem Carol Timm and Councilmen Gino Filippi. Opposing the sale was Councilmember Janice Elliott. Councilmen Sid Robinson was on vacation and did NOT vote but he also supported the sale of 12% of Memorial Park. Since then on November 6th, 2018, both Carol Timm and Gino Filippi lost their re-election bids and were replaced on city council by Rudy Zuniga and Ricky Felix. Sid Robinson had been appointed to city council after Janice Elliott beat him in the 2016 election. Sid had a two year appointment which expired at the end of 2018 and he did NOT run for city council in 2018. So Sid walked off the dais on December 10th, 2018, along with Carol Timm and Gino Filippi but NOT before, crowning Jeanette Vagnozzi’s as Upland’s next failed City Manager!

Will This Lead To Upland & The Hospital Terminating Their Existing Purchase Agreement?”
Our City Manager Jeannette Vagnozzi has failed to protect and inform the public! Vagnozzi has failed to protect Upland’s private and public property rights. Vagnozzi has failed to protect Upland home-owners. Vagnozzi has failed to protect Upland tax-payers! Vagnozzi has failed to protect Upland’s right-of-ways! Vanozzi failed to inform our city council members and our planning commissioners, that all 5G light-pole and utility-pole cellphone antenna permitting, is being done through our Public Works Department, ONLY! THAT MEANS NO PUBLIC HEARINGS! NO PUBLIC NOTIFICATION! NO DUE PROCESS! NO PLANNING BOARD APPROVAL! NO REQUIRED ZONING SET-BACKS! NO CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT! NO TRANSPARENCY AND ALLOWS CELLPHONE ANTENNAS TO BE INSTALLED 25 FEET AWAY FROM RESIDENTIAL HOMES, IN EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD IN UPLAND! Why is she still gainfully employed here making $311,000 in total annual compensation from Upland’s tax-payers, so she can go home and spend it in La Verne! Hopefully her employment is about to come to a screeching halt on or around April 29th, 2019! Please SIGN OUR PETITION to demand our city council adopt an urgency ordinance to STOP the current 5G permitting practice.

This report it so vitally important as our city’s day-to-day operations are being affected. Presidents of (3) Upland Employee Unions are publicly declaring that Upland’s City Manager is allegedly committing offenses which include; harassment, serial bullying, bribery, retaliation, violating and breaking labor laws, creating a hostile work environment, intimidating employees, allowing employees to be physically battered at work, as well as, allegedly trying to suppress evidence and witness testimony.

-The answer could very well be yes!!!!! Former Councilmen Glenn Bozar explains in his letter to the editor that, “The property owners of San Antonio Heights and Upland have won a major victory with Judge Cohn’s Statement of Decision regarding the County’s illegal annexation scheme. The Judge stated, “Thus, the geographic expansion of the service zones within the District by San Bernardino LAFCO was simply beyond its statutory authority. By doing so, San Bernardino committed a prejudicial abuse of its discretion. He further states, “That aspect of the annexation is therefore void, and the tax was improperly imposed on taxpayers within the newly annexed territory….the tax must be enjoined.” Read how the City of Upland and SB County violated property owners their State Constitutional RIGHT TO VOTE ON TAXES, in this special edition Letter To Editor, smoking hot Upland Report.

Well here we go again everybody, another Upland City Manager was hauled into a closed session on the morning on March 4th, between 7:30 and 8:30 am for an “employee evaluation.” Three Union Presidents attended that meeting to speak about a city manager who they allege is guilty of committing these offenses which include; harassment, serial bullying, bribery, retaliation, violating and breaking labor laws, creating a hostile work environment, intimidating employees, allowing employees to be physically battered at work and then claim, Vagnozzi tried to suppress evidence and witness testimony. Let me try to make this more clear, BOTH UPD UNIONS HAVE VOTED 100% NO CONFIDENCE IN OUR CITY MANAGER! Also in this report are the shocking events which took place during the Upland City Council Meeting on February 25th, which were so bizarre I haven’t even wanted to think about them, let alone write about them! The videos speak for themselves and if you NEVER read another Upland Report ever again, I beg you to please just read this one.

UPDATE: ISSUE TABLED AGAIN UNTIL MARCH 27TH & FULL UPDATE AT TOP OF PAGE. If you own or rent a home anywhere in North Upland, please show up and protest the construction of a 60′ tall, new 5G cellphone tower installation, to be built inside McCarthy Park. At 60′ feet tall, it will tower over the existing treetops and will be the highest thing seen from North Upland, second only to Mt. Baldy! McCarthy Park is on the corner of San Antonio and 20th Street and surrounding it, are nothing but residential neighborhoods on all sides. This huge new 5G tower and all 5G tech, will use millimeter waves instead of microwaves. Millimeter waves are biologically active and they interactive directly with human skin, specifically our sweat glands. The safety of millimeter waves is completely untested, except by our military, who use millimeter waves in electromagnetic weapons because they interact with human skin and can make someone feel, like they are on fire! Learn what you can do, to STOP the City of Upland’s Planning Commission, from allowing a huge 5 story tall, 5G cellphone tower, from being built inside a children’s playground and directly next to, a sprawling residential region!
