Yet Another Entitled Politician

Huntington beach councilman devin dwyer

This time the honor goes to Huntington Beach councilman Devin Dwyer, who apparently is unable to move his car in time for street sweeping and thinks he should get a pass.

There seems to be no really good reason why Mr. Dwyer can’t move his car in time, he just thinks that because he comes storming out of his home after the street sweeper has already gone by, that the city should simply make the sweeper back  up, sweep the affected area, and not give him a ticket.

He claims that if the city will not rescind his (dozen or so) tickets, he will resign.

By all means, Mr. Dwyer, do the residents of Huntington Beach a favor and do just that.

Because if you were a councilman in my city, the fact that you have a dozen or so street-sweeping tickets would make me dubious as to your capabilities to run your district.  I mean, if you can’t move your own damn car in time, how can I trust you to fix those potholes in a timely manner?

Oh, and he also thinks that the sweepers should go down the street with a loud beeping noise emanating from them.  Because, you know, the signs posted everywhere and the fact you can already hear the sweepers from two steets away isn’t good enough.

    I second Dave’s comment! God, I’d be so annoyed if they did have the “back-up beeping” noise, that’d be murder. Plus they always seem to come at the crack of dawn, so you’d never get back to sleep.

    Although, maybe he wants it to be like the ice cream truck. You hear it coming, you run out all excited to move your car so you don’t get a ticket. – Please read with sarcasm. Heavy.
