I'm referring to the article in the Jan. 6 issue of the Independent ("Mayor could increase stipend") that details Mayor Joe Carchio adding more job responsibilities to his agenda than a world-class spinner of plates on poles could handle…even if they had a dozen sets of hands.
Carchio states, "If you see me on a lot of boards, it's because I have a lot of time." Carchio also states that "my main concern is that the city of Huntington Beach is well represented." Carchio may indeed "have a lot of time"; however, it is absolutely impossible for one person to even remotely devote equal attention to 24 committee positions and be a mayor, too, unless they've had a computer installed in their brain. Carchio's claim that his "main concern is that the city of Huntington Beach is well represented," is a myth and fantasy that only exists in Carchio's vivid imagination.
