Travis & Voisey want truth? Uh, no ... they want $550,000!!!
Yesterday in a downtown LA courtroom, Arnette Travis stated she and Chris Voisey would drop the frivolous lawsuit they filed against Mayor Bill Brand, his volunteer Treasurer Linda Moffat, Council Member Nils Nehrenheim and ROW President Wayne Craig, if they paid them $550,000. We told them what they could do with that notion. Read more below we need your support.

Tuesday November 6th is Election Day.
This weekend expect political supporters telemarketing and knocking at your door. Ask them:
1. Did their candidate(s) support Measure C (that passed overwhelmingly in 2017)?
2. Were they against Measure B in 2015 when voters denied zoning changes for the AES site to include high-density housing and mixed-use commercial?
3. Who do they support in Redondo Beach city government that will promote these voter-majority ideals moving forward?
4. Has their candidate taken an official opinion on the personal lawsuits filed against residents of our city apparently encouraged by certain elected city officials such as Christian Horvath, Laura Emdee, and John Gran?
5. Are they going to support Redondo Mayor Bill Brand in helping to reduce traffic, over-development and other congestion issues in our City?
Voting is the only way to ensure you won’t be silenced by big donations or support from special interest groups, unions, the Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce PAC, and developers such as CenterCal to Redondo Beach city candidates. We have all seen how this occurred with Christian Horvath, Laura Emdee, John Gran, Steve Aspel, Doug Rodriguez, and Martha Barbee.
Below is a link to where you can find what you will be voting for on your ballot.

Councilmember Emdee Blames Redondo Voters
Redondo Beach City Council Member Laura Emdee now blames the voters for CenterCal’s $15 million lawsuit against the City - it's their fault. She says so in her letter in the November 1, 2018 Easy Reader. easyreadernews.com/letters-to-the-editor-11-1-18-2/
In what bizarre alternate reality does that make sense, since the votes she and Christian Horvath made to sign the 99-year lease with CenterCal, just 35 days before the residents had the opportunity to vote to reject it, caused this nightmare?
Even more astounding is in the letter’s item #2, where she actually suggests continuing to work with CenterCal, a Company that is suing our City for $15 million. CenterCal also owes about $2MM to Redondo Beach for an EIR and legal expenses they have refused to pay.
It's a good thing Rescue Our Waterfront PAC won the Measure C Lawsuit against CenterCal in court, and is appealing their flawed vested tract map claim. A win with this appeal could weaken the remaining $15 million lawsuit.
The city has wasted millions in legal fees, currently faces over $15 Million in potential losses plus court costs and millions in opposing counsel legal fees after Council Members Laura Emdee and Christian Horvath put us in this mess in the first place.
As this case proceeds in court it will be interesting to see how Horvath and Emdee spin this disaster. How are they going to portray the city potentially having to pay $15 Million dollars to their corporate sponsor? With these two you never know how they will distort the truth. Already, according to Emdee, it’s the voters fault, not hers. Hopefully other candidates in California seeking higher office can see how poorly Emdee and Horvath represent our community.
Rescue Our Waterfront PAC will continue the fight, since Emdee and Horvath and their assistant John Gran won’t let the city help. Once again we are on the front line to protect the residents even if these three elected officials refuse. ... See MoreSee Less
Buyer Beware, El Segundo!
El Segundo’s City Council has narrowed their choices regarding developers to revitalize The Lakes golf course down to two, one of which is CenterCal (Top Golf’s partner – some articles refer to it as the “Topgolf proposal”). If you have not followed Redondo Beach’s recent and ongoing experience with CenterCal, it would be wise to do some Google searches of local articles about the debacle surrounding their now-withdrawn Redondo Beach Waterfront Project. www.rescueourwaterfront.org/2018/09/06/buyer-beware-el-segundo/ ...

$498 Reasons for Coastal Commissioner Roberto Uranga to Recuse Himself from Voting On Measure C tomorrow.
In recent campaign reporting Coastal Commissioner Uranga received two separate donations for $249. One $249 donation was from CenterCal CEO Fred Bruning and the other $249 was from his wife Brandace Berger-Bruning ON THE SAME DAY!
California Election Law clearly states $250 is the statutory contribution limit.
Since Fred is a ‘Party” as the Managing member of CenterCal, his wife would also thereby be a part owner (shareholder) of the LLC. They appear to have exceeded the $250 legal limit in aggregate with a total donation of $498.
According to California election law the money coming from CenterCal could be illegal, or even considered a “pay to play” donation
At the very least Coastal Commissioner Uranga should be recused from voting on Measure C due to an obvious conflict of interest.
Below is the actual screen shot from the financial disclosures.
Here’s the relevant section of the election law related to pay to play contribution limits.
