In his spirited defense of Councilman Peter Blake in the pages of the Indy, columnist Michael Ray states: “It is the same 30 or so Village Laguna members who keep going after him, and it has gotten so repetitive it is boring. Their biggest—and really only—refrain is that Peter is a bully.”
Let’s see why so many in Laguna perceive Blake to be a “bully” by revisiting some of his own words as written in these pages, online, and spoken from the Council dais:
“A position on City Council does encourage respect for constituents who are worthy of respect. These two are worthy of nothing. My constituents require I stand up and fight those who oppose the changes I was elected to enact. They’re only attacking me because of the votes I’ve won against them and their Luddite followers.”
“Carol, is that you? Sounds like your psychobabble. I always enjoy your passive/aggressive posts. Please spare me your sanctimonious BS.”
“I have to answer to you and a house-smock wearing polyester Betty like MJ? I should base my decisions on the internet studies of fools like Michael? Do I have to answer to people like you who are posting at 2am? Get a life “JP””.
“…Young minds are preferable to simple minds like yours.”
“Oh Liza, you’re such an incredible liar”.
“Liza, the only accomplishments you’ve ever made were on the backs of your family name.”
“The residents of this community are trying to live in 2019 and worried about fools like you… dictating their future.”
“Dorothy, you’re an idiot!?”
“You’re just another gadfly who shows up at every Council meeting with their self-serving agendas in hand.”
“You take to the podium frothing at the mouth and start screaming disparaging comments at Council and staff. Who do you think you are? M, let’s face it, you use your husband’s position with the Republican Party as a crutch.”
