MY  PLEDGE TO VOTERS :

I promise the residents of Mission Viejo that when I am elected, you may count on Desi J. Kiss  to be committed to honesty, open access, transparency, open government and freedom of expression.

 Desi J. Kiss will be second to none in seeking to know, fully understand and comply with the laws requiring open meetings of public bodies and citizen access to public records, as well as the First Amendment’s guarantees of free expression, especially on matters of public concern and public safety including structural safety of residential, commercial industrial and other structures and equipment.

I believe in learning during one’s lifetime and that incompetence is the worst form of corruption. I shall make education my number one priority along with fighting incompetence and corruption at all levels. If I should err concerning such issues, it will be on the side of transparency in government and liberty of communication.

I will fight to eliminate subpar performance and waste of our tax dollars on “contracted” City Departments and Public Services. I will fight to terminate the practice of providing City of  Mission Viejo, business cards to all “contracted” staff and organizations, and stop the practice of misrepresenting and misleading the residents and the public at large.

If the law instead gives elected public officials the discretion to open a meeting or a record, I will demand a convincing and public explanation of why the public interest argues against such access. I will fight to seal immediately and safeguard any public records and documents that may be part of an inquiry or investigation, especially those related to public safety and the structural soundness and safety of structures and equipment in order to protect and safeguard the health, safety and property of the public.

When I am told that a local governmental meeting shall be closed or information withheld, I will demand from City staff or legal counsel a clear and public explanation of the law that forbids such transparency and openness.

When such law(s) instead gives public elected City officials discretion to open a meeting or a record, I will demand a convincing and public explanation of why the public interest argues against such access.


When elected Desi J. Kiss will stand for clear vision and leadership, fewer and lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, eliminate subpar performance and waste of our tax dollars on “contracted” City departments, free markets to function and bring back growth and prosperity to the City of Mission Viejo.

 I shall advocate, and provide leadership among my peers and residents to enact, a sunshine ordinance or policy that is more accommodating to citizens’ desires for public information and involvement in the process of government than is strictly required by state law, especially where that law has unjustifiable loopholes, unforeseen gaps, uncertainties or needless limitations.

I am not a career politician and I make this solemn and honest pledge in asking for your continued trust and support, because trust begins at home at an early age and grows with education, knowledge and experience, and you cannot experience what is done secretly or with misdirection or surprise. I respect your need for both the facts and the chance to speak to them, and that respect will guide my actions in office when elected.
 
My fellow Americans, friends, residents and citizens this is my solemn and honest pledge to  you.  If you believe that we the people deserve a better government through transparency and  public participation and better days ahead, then please cast your vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 for DESI J.  KISS, Thank you for your support and your vote!
