‘Mayor Dud'

Santa Clarita voters, pay close attention to a city council member who was just re-elected to "serve us" - Frank Ferry.

A group of homeowners resist a four-story office building being erected in their neighborhood and this sitting city councilman publicly declares them "development terrorists" and urges the developers to sue them. These two actions are added to the list of Ferry's other bully tactics.

A Signal article once reported that while TimBen Boydston was appointed to the council to serve out the term of a departing member, he upset Ferry's apple cart, prompting Ferry to respond with the reminder that Boydston really wasn't elected to his job. As if that made Boydston of lesser value.

In this last council campaign, The Signal reported Ferry getting in contender David Gauny's face with threats of having him "investigated" or some like-kind intimidation attempt. See the pattern here?

Someone please tell Frank Ferry that it's ugly to aspire toward becoming the Rahm Emanuel of Santa Clarita politics. Save it for the thug training of Chicago.

Admittedly, Ferry has an interesting way of garnering votes for the next campaign. It just may backfire.

Remember the silly "Mayor Dude" campaign?

It's now become "Mayor Dud."
