After years of fighting the system from outside, newly elected Ocean View School Board member John Briscoe has a fierce list of changes he hopes to make from within. Last week, Briscoe was one of three new members elected to the Ocean View board in last week's election. Rather than taking what he called the "easy road," gaining union endorsements, sending out mailers and putting up signs on the corner, Briscoe went out every day to face the public. Day after day, the board member hopeful sat on the pavement out in front of every school in the district, getting to know students as well as registered voters.

Torus Tammer FOUNTAIN VALLEY -- John Briscoe is a man who fancies himself a fiscal expert -- ready, willing and definitely able to take on the challenge of sitting on the City Council. Briscoe said his experience in the private sector makes him especially qualified for the role."My fiscal expertise as a CPA and small businessman, along with my experience on the Planning Commission and Traffic Committee, gives me a unique perspective," Briscoe said.

My question is why are we so fast to relinquish school sites (LeBard in particular) to be used as developments for homes and school district headquarter monoliths? It's all to appease developers, without thought of what should be the obvious. Am I missing something? Will these developments being built for "families" not require schools for their kids? Are we going to overburden existing schools with more kids who, in many cases, must travel to get there? School sites need to be saved.

-- ERON BEN-YEHUDA Many would welcome a little peace and quiet at City Council meetings, but loud protests erupted when former Mayor Peter Green tried to silence a critic. The 73-year-old veteran councilman lost his cool as resident John Briscoe accused the city treasurer of mismanaging and lying about the money the city collects for certain municipal services. City Treasurer Shari Freidenrich disputes those allegations. Green tried to turn off the microphone as Briscoe spoke during the time reserved for public comments at an April meeting.

John Briscoe is running for office, but he already holds one. The Ocean View School District Trustee wants to sit on another school board at the same time. Briscoe, 55, has two years left in his term. But he has filed for candidacy in the Huntington Beach Union High School District as well, and he said he plans to hold both offices at once. Briscoe said the Orange County Registrar of Voters was first skeptical, but then told him he could run—though they didn’t make any guarantees about what happens if he wins.

Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- A resident has filed complaints with the Orange County Grand Jury and the district attorney's office alleging the city treasurer mismanaged millions of taxpayers dollars. John Briscoe is demanding that an audit be performed on an account that contains all of the uncollected city debts, which he estimates totals more than $20 million, according to documents dated Friday. City Treasurer Shari Freidenrich, who is responsible for keeping tabs on the outside company hired to collect the money, isn't doing her job, he claims.

Huntington Beach has been halved, and two halves do not make a whole! The California Citizens Redistricting Commission has cut our city in half, with two state senators representing our bifurcated city ( "Redistricting changes 2012 electoral battles," Aug. 18). The result of this will be a smaller focus on the larger city. Senate candidates will pay the same attention to Huntington Beach as Midway City. In other words, not much. The every-10-year political redistricting has resulted in a strange twist of fate that abandoned the city of Huntington Beach.

It’s tough to tell when the John Briscoe vs. the Ocean View School District feud began, but it’s quickly veering into Rosie vs. Barbara territory. In other words, it’s silly, petty and the school board members are embarrassing themselves. Perhaps it started just before Christmas, of all times, when Briscoe got into a goofy spat with the school district over his website, www.oceanviewschooldistrict.org . What was the issue? Well, school officials were alarmed that his website used the district’s logos and other graphics that might confuse some folks that his website was the district’s official domain.

The Ocean View School District board didn’t censure anyone at its meeting Tuesday. As it turned out, trustee John Briscoe failed to submit all the proper documents to bring a censure vote against the board’s own president, Debbie Cotton. But Briscoe’s motion against Cotton, and the heated discussions that followed, laid bare animosities that have colored board meetings for months — even years. “We’re going through budget cuts right now,” board member George Clemens said at the meeting.
