Steve Dicterow must be superman. At least that is what he himself seems to think. At his 9/11 tribute, which he seems to have turned into a campaign event and a celebration of himself, he takes single-handed credit for saving Laguna Beach last time he was in office.
According to reports, “Dicterow said when he was first elected in 1994 the city had four major problems, which he said he resolved.” Did Dicterow really use the first person singular? He resolved them? Alone?
Didn’t the city have a city council, then as now? Did no one other than himself have anything to do with solving these major problems? Or did the council just vote to grant Steve personal dictatorial powers to save Laguna, single-handedly? He must be Superman. Give the man some tights!
Dicterow says “I don’t want to compare myself to other candidates” … but then he does, finding himself to have “more energy, more enthusiasm and more passion than all the rest put together.” According to his campaign slogan he apparently also thinks he has more “common sense” than they do. Maybe he thinks himself prettier, too! I wonder how well the other council members will work together with Steve now that they know what he really thinks of them. Oh, well, I’m sure he can count on his own vote.
I can’t wait for this wonderful man to tell us more about his accomplishments. Maybe he invented the Internet? Maybe even Post-It notes!
