Gloating at the caf

A Malibu idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup. On behalf of the Lily’s Caf Steering Committee we would like to thank the Malibuites who supported our position on Measure K. Many of you were inconvenienced by the relocation of your voting sites, breaking a long established Malibu tradition of static voting locations. We thank you for your strength and will power to trek and vote. Until now there were only two ways of standing up to the established political machines in Malibu – anonymously and posthumously. In a small way, together as Malibu voters, we are changing this idea.

Malibu City Council members House, Kearsley and Jennings should have used greater research and diligence before approving the wording in Measure K as a ballot item. They have two years to gain the faith of those who opposed “K,” before their term of office is up for election.

Council Member Tom Hasse, your tenure in Malibu politics has certainly been worthy of note as voters never knew which side you would take on a question. You are your own identifiable person and stood by your individualistic values, no matter what side of the political spectrum they fell. You are an unsullied and noteworthy advocate or ally. We, at Lily’s Caf, thank you for your independence as you leave Malibu political life.

Candidates in the upcoming April 2002 council election, please join us for coffee at Lily’s Caf and share your vision as to the future of Malibu with us. We, the unpresumptuous citizens of Malibu, welcome your political perspective.

And that is all we have to say (sure).

Tom Fakehany, chair

Lily’s Caf Steering Committee

Doug O’Brien, vice chair

John Harlow, secretary/treasurer
