Mitch Green, now part of the task force
It was reported by Barbra Williamson that Mitch Green is now part of the Simi
Valley Landfill Task Force.
It is interesting that she made this statement since she also said that in
addition to resigning as the Chair of the task force,
she is no longer a member.
It seems that she is still in contact with the task force,
so perhaps the resignation is just for show.
Mitch Green recently ran for Simi Valley City Council and some of his
statements were interesting,
but showed that he just wanted to be part of the "Good Old Boys" (not
He said that he did not see any problem with Simi Valley with respect
to businesses as he got a business license without a problem.
Many businesses have reported problems getting their businesses open,
but Mitch Green does not see a problem
The City Council created a position and hired a person to be a business
but according to Mitch Green, he does not see a problem.
One comment that Mitch Green made that I found quite interesting was that
he said that one of the good things about his running for Council was
now he could call any Council Member and they would take his call.
It seems to me that the Council members should take calls from the public and
not just from "special" people.
this shows that the Council responds more to special interests than the public.
It is also quite telling about Mitch Green and what he thinks is
I ran for City Council to serve the people,
as well as to inform people as to what is really going on.
People like Mitch Green seem to run to serve themselves.
The reason that I mention the above is because I have documented
the false/deceptive statements from the task force,
as well as some of the lies from the members.
Mitch Green has decided to attack me with statements on the Ventura County
This shows that Mitch Green really fits in with the Task Force
since he is willing to say anything in order to try to get his way.
The fact is that I have NEVER said that everyone's statements are false but
mine nor have I said that everyone is a liar but me.
These statements are just a childish personal attack from Mitch Green
and are completely made up in his mind.
I have never said that everything that the Task Force has said is false
and Mitch Green knows this,
but it seems clear that he does not care about the truth and reality,
which is concerning since he is an attorney.
It also shows the Mitch Green knows that he can't really address the actual
issue of the Task Force making false/deceptive statements.
He is left no choice but to make attacks against the messenger in the hope that
people will think that what he is saying means something.
The Task Force stated on page 2 of their document
Task Force presentation to various community groups
Ventura County becomes the home to the
largest dump in the Western United States.
But there is a problem with that statement since the
Mesquite Regional Landfill has a footprint of 2290 acres and Eagle Mountain has
a footprint of 2164 acres, both of which are in California, quite cleary this
makes the claims of the Simi Valley Task Force FALSE.
The list of some of the false/deceptive statements are documented in other
but this is one of the most clear cut false statements made and easy to show
that it is false.
For a long time the Task Force refused to put up a web site and some of Barbra
Williamson's comments about that are interesting (see votesimivalley.com) and
instead waged a whisper attack on the expansion.
If it is not in writing,
then it is harder to prove what exactly they said.
As part of a recent discussion at a Council meeting there were letters from
There were two letters from different people which both said that they did not
want Simi Valley to become home to the largest landfill in the United States.
When you look at the above document,
it seems pretty clear where these people got their false impressions.
This seems to be how the Task Force chooses to work,
make false statements and get people upset so that they will try to stop the
The real question is what the actual goal of the Task Force is.
There is no need to lie when you are in the right,
but since the Task Force is making false statements in order to get their way,
it seems pretty clear that they have a hidden agenda/goal,
there has to be something in it for them.
Look at the people involved and some of the issues and you will quickly see
that things are not what they seem to be.
I would also suggest that people look at the other comments that Mitch Green
has made, including on
In other news,
during the election I went to the Democratic Club,
which was interesting because if there was a Democrat running for an office,
they would not let any others running to speak or even ask a question.
many said that they would have liked to hear from others running as well.
Mitch Green spoke,
as he is a Democrat (and seemed to try to get votes based on that) and
for most of his time he ranted about Mike Sedell.
It seems that he does not like Mike Sedell much.
Mitch Green mentioned that one of Mike Sedell's problems was that he did not
come by Mitch's office and ask him how he was doing.
For some reason Mitch Green seems to think that the other Council
members would like to get rid of Mike Sedell,
yet the current Council appointed Mike Sedell and has taken no action
to get rid of him,
so I have no idea as to why Mitch would have such a concept.
I just found a nice quote from Mitch Green which explains his behavior:
Since Mitch Green has decided to resort to personal attacks,
that must mean that the facts and the law is against him.
