Hansberger

Yes, just when you think it couldn’t get any more ridiculous than it already is. Coming out of left field, but not totally unexpected.

Murmurings are beginning to surface out of the Redlands contingent that ousted former county supervisor Dennis Hansberger may be in revenge mode.

Wait, I forgot.

Hansberger is always in revenge mode.

It seems his defeat in June 2008 has really gotten the best of him. Whatever that was.

The terms bitter and angry come to mind.

Now the former supervisor may be actually considering a run against the man who unexpectedly defeated him, that person being Third District Supervisor Neil Derry.

It seems Hansberger wanted to ‘retire” from county government after serving a sixth term and anoint his successor. Third District voters decided otherwise and spoiled the sought for “legacy”.

The Redlands “Old Guard” (I mean really old!) must be restless. Reports say it could be related to Viagra overdose. I don’t think the Tartan has ran out of booze yet.

I can see the Hansberger campaign slogans now.

“I’m seeking to return as your county supervisor because the incumbent has accomplished more in one year, than I did my entire last term in office.”

“I really didn’t destroy all of my district files before I left office. It was the one-armed man.”

“Having my name on the County Museum’s Hall of Geologic Wonders wasn’t enough. I really want it on the new county government center.”

“That last pension grab wasn’t big enough. I want more.”

You have to admit, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Stay tuned.
