Well at this point, watching an Upland City Council Meeting is more like watching a sitcom, than an informative and fact finding municipal meeting. There were so many residents who spoke to our city council about their MAJOR and LEGITIMATE concerns, that the meeting went from super serious to gut busting funny and this was live theater at it’s very best. The residents of the Colonies stole the show and listening to what they had to say, would make any resident dealing with those issues, fighting mad. And the praises of our new Police Chief Darren Goodman, were so heartwarming and sincere, it nearly brought me to tears AGAIN AND THAT NEVER HAPPENS! And if you want to know why both Mayor Stone and Mayor Pro Tem Timm had to recuse themselves on the same agenda item, causing CorrUpland to have no acting Mayor at all, please come on inside where we’ll have a good laugh and cry together and afterwards, a big group hug and sing Kumbaya!
What just happened? On Thursday 9/20 at 6 PM, the Upland City Council Agenda was published and shock and awe was heard citywide! Lewis has withdrawn all plans to build 675 units inside two parkland tracts and the Public Hearing for Monday 9/24 has been cancelled! And even more shocking than that, is a closed session item where our city council will go into closed session at 6 PM on Monday night, to appoint a new Upland City Manager! WHAT????

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?

It has been nearly 72 hours and I still don’t understand exactly what happened and what is about to happen in the Shady City of Upland. In fact, I don’t think anyone has a clue what happened at the 6/11/18 City Council Meeting except for Thug Thouvenell, Mayor Drone, Sid’s Robing-us, Carol Timm’s Times Up & Gino ~ Where The Flip Do You Live.

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. This article is really a continuation of why our city council just censured Councilwoman Janice Elliott last week, so if you haven’t read that article, it may be helpful to refer to it first, here.
