Trying to squeeze $1 billion out of cities to balance the state budget is like, well, trying to squeeze blood out of a turnip. That is the message Simi Valley Councilwoman Sandi Webb will carry to Sacramento this week--along with 1,000 pounds of turnips. Webb is leading a drive to haul a truckload of the purple-and-white vegetables to the state capital to protest the potential squeeze on cities. "What we're saying is that taxpayers are blood-dry," Webb said.

Former Simi Valley Councilwoman Sandi Webb has launched a campaign to recall state Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush, saying his handling of disputed insurance claims has made him unfit for office. "He has misused his office for personal gain," Webb said. "Money has disappeared down so many different holes, and none of it is going to the victims."

A controversial pro-gun councilwoman from Simi Valley has raised hackles in her hometown by making an obscene gesture at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). Councilwoman Sandi Webb said she got angry at Feinstein earlier this week during a meeting of California city officials in Washington when the senator asked for their help fighting a repeal of the state's ban on assault weapons. Strictly speaking, Webb raised her fist at the senator with the middle digit extended, then stormed out.

The California Fair Political Practices Commission has advised Barbara Williamson, elected to the Simi Valley City Council in November, that she can vote on some city matters involving her employer, Simi Valley Bank. Since her election, Williamson, a vice president at the bank, has abstained on votes to pay routine city bills because the city's checking account is with Simi Valley Bank.

The Simi Valley City Council decided Tuesday night not to sue Los Angeles to block the $2-billion Porter Ranch development in Chatsworth because council members said their concerns about traffic and smog have been resolved. Councilman Bill Davis said the council had been assured by the city of Los Angeles and Porter Ranch Development Co. that the Simi Valley Freeway would get a fourth lane before occupany permits are issued for 4.5 million square feet of commercial and retail space.

City Councilman Hal Bernson lashed out at the Simi Valley City Council on Tuesday for voting to sue Los Angeles over the Porter Ranch development, saying the council acted rashly and probably will fail in its quest to block the colossal project. Bernson said Simi Valley officials should welcome Porter Ranch for the jobs it will provide, rather than file an expensive lawsuit.

Shortly after Sandi Webb was elected to the Simi Valley City Council in November, Mayor Greg Stratton was asked his opinion about how Webb's Libertarian Party affiliation might affect her vote on city issues. "Well, I don't think she is going to try and abolish the City Council or anything," he joked. Webb laughed when told of the mayor's comments during a recent interview. She said her goal is not to eliminate government but "to make things run a little smoother for people."

Simi Valley Councilwoman Sandi Webb's admission last week that she illegally carries a pistol when she leaves the safety of her home city for Los Angeles, and will continue to do so, has drawn disbelief from fellow council members and law enforcement officials. Webb maintained on two Los Angeles talk radio programs that she has a God-given right to protect herself. That drew quick complaints from Simi Valley officials.

Brandishing the signatures of 3,000 people who believe that carrying a firearm ought to be legal, Simi Valley's defiant City Councilwoman Sandi Webb told state lawmakers Tuesday that--lawful or not--she totes a gun to protect herself and her teen-age daughter. In a deliberate, forceful voice, Webb testified before the Assembly Public Safety Committee in support of a bill to allow more people to legally carry concealed, loaded weapons.

After less than a year on the job, Simi Valley Police Chief Willard R. Schlieter resigned Thursday, capping a week of rumors predicting his imminent departure. Sources close to the department said the chief's top commanders were unhappy with his management style--that he was too much of an administrator and did not take firm command of the department. "He was in way over his head," said a source with intimate knowledge of Police Department management.

A letter by a councilwoman praising a man who killed a graffiti tagger has dismayed her council colleagues, but Simi Valley's mayor said her comments may reinforce the city's "law-and-order lifestyle." Councilwoman Sandi Webb may have gone too far in calling the Sun Valley man a hero and recommending, even in jest, that Simi Valley police shoot would-be graffiti vandals with rock-salt pellets, Mayor Greg Stratton said.
