    tl;dr

    Roy Wilson (the reasonable human on the Rivercide Board of Supes) is resigning for health reasons. The Gov will appoint a replacement until 2010 election.

    Is he the one that voted against the picketing ordinance?
    He's County supervisor and member of the Riverside County Transportation commision.

    His link with the transportation commision makes his leaving a very bad thing.

    I wonder who gets to pick his temporary replacement? I guess we will see if they are pro Scilon and pro road closure.

    Re: Roy Wilson resigning

    Y'all are thinking of Bob Buster. He's the one who seems to understand the nature and limitations of his position. Roy voted FOR ordinance 884.

    And the Board just gave him that godawful eagle trophy for his continued years of service.

    Roy Wilson is an elderly scumbag that notoriously sucked up to Jeff Stone's ass and voted for the Scientology ordinance to limit protests.

    Good riddance, loser.

    Re: Roy Wilson resigning

    What's so significant about him that he would condemn Jeff Stone?

    He's part French. And he was born in Kankakee which was first explored by Lasalle who was also French.

    And we all know how the French feel about scientology these days.

    He's also a hard-core Republican which Jeff Stone is also. Republicans tend to stick together like glue in the political arena.

    Re: Roy Wilson resigning

    The Board (Supervisors Stone, Tavaglione, and Ashley) met for about 25 minutes today (Tues., Aug. 25, 2009) and resolved to accept Supervisor Roy Wilson's resignation and to recommend, as Supervisor Wilson himself did, that the Governor of California appoint State Senator John Benoit as his replacement. Supervisor Marion Ashley is to oversee the Fourth District staff until the replacement takes place. Supervisor Wilson's health problems began with a fall, a broken hip, and a difficult hip replacement. Milestones such as this often have emotional moments and this one was no exception.

    Re: Roy Wilson resigning

    Other than Bob Buster (great guy, btw) Wilson wasn't as bad as the rest of them. He's the guy who stopped Catherine Fraser when she started to attack Graham during her 3 minute speech one week. People in the audience started groaning and booing as she did this, and Jeff Stone started to admonish the audience! Then Wilson interrupted Catherine Fraser, and said that no one was going to talk about anything other than the ordinance. She started again on WBM (I think) and he stopped her again, so that was great. He sort of went over Stone's head to do this, because theoretically Stone, as COB, was in charge of the meeting.

    Anyway, it seemed like Wilson could possibly have been reasoned with. We'll see what the new guy does.

    Re: Roy Wilson resigning

    So we're going to stereotype him now?

    As do many hardcore Democrats.

    LOLWUT!

    No racial stereotyping here then...

    Re: Roy Wilson resigning

    Actually, there IS no "racial" stereotyping, as "French" is not a race.

    That was a quick decline.

    My condolences to Roy's family and friends for their loss.
