Wow - I've been called a lot of things, but never a Mormon supporter. Take it back!
I don't think the issue she is discussing is really at question - just her manner of presentation. Obviously some editing was done, but it isn't needed to make her look dumber, since her long rambling statements do a pretty good job of it on their own. So, my bet is this video is pretty much for time. Or possibly boredom. Details on the issue at hand below, and they aren't exactly riveting. From the City Council's website: AGENDA OF: 5/13/2008 DEPARTMENT: Economic Development SUBJECT: FY 2009 Cooperative Retail Management Business Real Property Improvement District Assessments. (ED) RECOMMENDATION: Resolution confirming the FY 2009 Cooperative Retail Management Business Real Property Improvement District Annual Plan; and levying business improvement assessments for FY 2009. BACKGROUND: On February 8, 1994, the City Council adopted Ordinance 94-06 adding Chapter 5.06 to the Santa Cruz Municipal Code establishing the Cooperative Retail Management Business Real Property Improvement District and levying assessments on the properties along Pacific Avenue pursuant to the Parking and Business Improvement Law of 1989. In 1996, the district boundaries were expanded to include side streets between Cedar and Front Streets and some alleyways. DISCUSSION: On April 22, 2008, the City Council adopted a resolution stating its intention to levy business improvement assessments for FY 2009 and scheduled a public hearing for May 13, 2008 in accordance with State law and Chapter 5.06 of the Santa Cruz Municipal Code. The Resolution of Intention and notice of this public hearing were published in the Sentinel and mailed to affected property owners as required by State law. At the public hearing portion of this meeting, written and oral protests pertaining to the proposed levy of assessments, the amount of the proposed assessments, the proposed improvements and activities to be funded with the revenues derived from the proposed levy of assessments, and/or the proposed boundaries of the District may be made in accordance with State & Highways Code Sections 36524 and 36525. At the conclusion of the public hearing, absent the receipt of written ballots from property owners casting a majority vote against the proposed assessment, Council is requested to adopt a resolution confirming the Downtown Management Corporation's plan, as approved by the Council on April 22, 2008, and as amended by Council during the hearing, if applicable. FISCAL IMPACT: The assessment district is the primary funding source for the Downtown Host Program. If the district failed to pass, the program would be discontinued.

@c - Great idea. I didn't see too many in my experiment, but there were a lot of cop/buddy cop movies that I skipped over. But there are some pretty sweet Badge and Gun montages out there. @Jeffersonic - Stay tuned! Some of my future posts have some classic Stone Cold moments. That film is WAY more fun that it has any right to be. @JH - Man, when I was a kid I thought Running Scared was a really cool movie. I didn't have the heart to watch it again though, because my feelings for Billy Crystal have changed so much. Now he just skeeves me out. @Joe - Good one! There are so many good lines in The Running Man, it was hard to pick just one.
