In the October 19th meeting of the Aliso Viejo City Council, PTSA President Ellen Garrick provided the council with FPPC documents that identified Mayor Munzing as the owner of the hit-site, The Real CUSD, and chastised him for disseminating “misleading statements and misinformation” in opposition to Measure M. Munzing could only site there, stupefied, as the PTSA President and former Assistant District Attorney described Munzing’s petty tactics as despicable. His eventual rebuttal comment was, “I don’t know anything about that web site.”
“I don’t know anything about that web site.”
In the contentious debate over this $889 million school bond, Munzing took an early “oppose” position, but was unable to articulate why he opposed the improvements to school facilities and implementation of safety repairs. Instead, Munzing simply rode on the coattails of other elected officials who oppose new taxes. During an Aliso Viejo City Council meeting, the inexperienced Mayor Mike refused to answer questions about his position on the bond matter, and directed questions to the city manager, David Doyle, who responded by informing the council and public that the agenda item was the responsibility of the mayor since he added the item to the discussion “without the concurrence of the members.” After 4 years on the council, Munzing is still trying to understand protocol, like the quorum, meeting rules and agenda procedures.
Why is the revelation that Munzing is hosting the misinformation web site so interesting? Mainly because Munzing, and his surrogate, Aliso Viejo realtor Scott White have taken to social media to call Munzing’s critics “cowards” for hiding behind anonymous web sites and blogs. They say these “cowards” should have the “integrity” to disclose their identity and face Munzing publicly. Now the public has learned that Mayor Munzing is employing those very cowardly tactics. Pot calling the kettle black?
So now the public knows that Munzing has been attacking parents, teachers and students through his anti-education web site, and hiding behind an anonymous registration service. But what about the creepy “anti-trash talk” video Munzing produced and distributed showing him lecturing elementary school age girls about the harm this behavior does? Remember Mike, you told these little girls that you have too much “integrity” to participate in this activity? Perhaps you should have explained to these young girls that it was all just a “fib.”
