“Your fight is now with Bridge, not us”

On August 27th at the Summerhouse Workshop, after the Temecula Murrieta Rescue Mission pulled their application, Bob Johnson from the Temecula Redevelopment Agency (RDA) announced that the City and the RDA have nothing to do with Bridge Housing LLC. “Your fight is now with Bridge, not us”, Johnson announced.

Didn’t the Council invite Bridge into town for the public hearing without a public posting on Aug 11th ? Is Johnson saying that now it’s OUR responsibility to throw them out?  In essence, the City Council takes their trash, dumps it on your lawn, and tells you to clean it up!!


Here is the entire video of the Aug 11th Meeting where Bridge Housing was approved:

On August 11th when the City Council voted on approving Bridge to build low income housing without any public notice to the surrounding residents or businesses, you will notice that Councilman Chuck Washington states that the City Council initiated the entire process and found Bridge Housing at 01:52:53 on the video.

Patrick Richardson said “they weren’t the low bidder, but the right bidder” with all of this talk about “partnerships”.  Watching the video, you would swear that Richardson worked for Bridge rather than the people of Temecula.

If you call Richardson’s office today, they will tell you they have nothing to do with Bridge at all. “That is Bridge’s land, not ours”.

Make no mistake.  This is the City Council’s fault. Bob Johnson is correct when he said on August 27th that “they blew it”.

THIS IS THE CITY COUNCIL’S MESS AND THEY HAVE TO CLEAN IT UP. IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO TELL BRIDGE THEY ARE NOT WANTED. THEY REPRESENT US!! OR DO THEY?

Where is the leadership on this council…will they put Temecula first or Bridge housing first?
