On January 18th of 2012, the City of Moreno Valley opened the doors of the City’s Conference and Recreation Center, to hold a community forum to present information about a development plan in Rancho Belago on the east end of Moreno Valley.
However this was no true forum at all. A forum is a meeting or gathering in which the public may debate an issue or express opinions for or against matters of general interest. Yet in this forum, no public participation was allowed, that is not what a forum is, a forum is a meeting in which public debate is welcomed.
So the question is why the publics participation in a governmentally conducted public forum regarding City issues was barred and directed to the use of on-line form or phone in telephone number by which the public could submit feedback, comments, questions or requests for more information, but all this was after the fact.
mvgordie.com has been taking the time to go over the materials used by the City in their presentation to the people, information which was put together by Mr. Husing (Economics & Politics, Inc.) as well as Mr. Kranz (an ecology and environmental expert from the University of Redlands).
It is the opinion of mvgordie.com after many hours and days of research the information provided by all parties in this forum (John Husing, Timothy Kranz, Highland Fairview and the City of Moreno Valley) is flawed, and misleading.
mvgordie.com came to this conclusion by looking at data from the California Employment Development Department, as well as the United States Department of Labor as well as other related sources within the industries of international shipping, trucking, warehousing as well as prior predictions of Mr. Husing himself.
mvgordie.com will be providing you the citizens of Moreno Valley the results of our findings, however we will not be making claims that this information was obtained from the EDD, or the D.O.L., no we will be providing you with the actual documents, and or screen captures of the information itself obtained from these sources, as it is the opinion of mvgordie.com, that mere statements are not enough to base a City’s future on. Furthermore, information can be manipulated in such a way as to pick and choose only that which looks good for your cause, and ignore things which would tend to go contrary to that which you are attempting to sell to the people.
This will be a lengthy process, and will be done in several separate posting. It will show their predictions as well as other agencies predictions, plus the current and past trends in this area for such things as employment numbers, wages, and number of facilities. This information will cover Riverside County, San Bernardino County as well as predictions on port traffic and the Panama Canal (which plays an important role in the future of the warehousing and distribution industry in California).
