For the record, Vivian Moreno did all her work without access to the Moreno Valley computer system, she was forbidden to use one. Vivian didn’t care, she knew what was going on. Moreno had seen all these games before. With this in mind, how senseless was it of City Manager Michelle Dawson; instead of supporting the Mayor’s direction to bring in help he so desperately needed, she created chaos and instability in her organization. Then you need to ask yourself why did the Mayor need help? Because the City Manager didn’t do her job! Maybe Michelle Dawson didn’t get the memo from Tom De Santis : DO NOT try to take on Vivian Moreno, you will lose!
Since August 2015 the Press Enterprise has written 7 stories, and 1 editorial in the time that Vivian was Assistant to the Mayor. The PE articles written reflect the positive changes that have occurred in the Mayor’s office.
What did Michelle Dawson do in the time Vivian Moreno was cleaning up the city, that she (Dawson) should have been protecting? Dawson was creating chaos, deflection and distraction. What a waste of time and taxpayer money. Maybe she (Dawson) was more focused on the finance director? Just asking…
Since the Mayor (Molina) has been in office it has been a struggle for him and many of his colleagues to get information such as public documents needed to do their job. I think what the Council, Mayor and Public need to ask themselves…….. “Does Michelle Dawson have the leadership skills necessary to take the City of Moreno Valley to the 21st Century?”
This article should be titled: Michelle Dawson vs. Vivian Moreno. In order to understand the junction of the dysfunction or malfunction you need to understand the players:
City Manager: Michelle Dawson
Assistant City Manager: Tom De Santis
Sustainability & Intergovernmental Programs Manager: or AKA bull shit position for a friend: Julie Reyes
Management Analyst: AKA MVMA President: Felicia London
Julie Reyes was the Number “3” in the leadership position in Moreno Valley. I did say “WAS”…..As of Friday, October 30, 2015 she was nowhere to be found. Did she resign? What happened? No one seems to know at this junction. In order to weed out the dysfunction, malfunction, and or corruption, all you needed to do was to shine the light on it, and expose it for what it was! Julie is GONE!
As Vivian Moreno became more comfortable in her position as the assistant to the Mayor, she was able to have a front row seat at what really goes on in City Hall. The petty distractions created by Vivian Moreno’s mere presence were on going and brought on by management. Michelle Dawson and others thought they could take Vivian on in the work place, but it was Vivian that would have none of it. Vivian was there to help out her friend, by redirecting and refocusing the Mayor’s office.
Here is a list of accomplishments that Mayor Jesse Molina and his assistant Vivian Moreno completed in 2 months and 3 weeks. The positive changes in his office and the city were a direct result because the Mayor now had the help he desperately needed.
1. The Mayor procured, achieved and accomplished through the World Logistics Hearings successfully.
2. The Mayor was prepared and delivered a successful State of the City Address written by Vivian Moreno.
3. The Mayor is more organized and now runs, successful, peaceful, and public centered, Council meetings.
4. The Mayor successfully rescued the city council meeting involving the Crossing Guard issue that had turned into a fiasco. When it seemed like all hell was going to break loose. It was Vivian Moreno that contacted Menifee Mayor Scott Mann to get an emergency meeting between the Mayor and Superintendent Dr. Judy White so they could get a dialog started and solve this problem together..
5. It was the direction of the Mayor to bring transparency and ethics to the city of Moreno Valley and with the help of Vivian who researched the information for the Sunshine Ordinance and compiled the Ethics information. They were able to start the process of an open the government for the people of Moreno Valley.
6. The Mayor is dedicated in bringing unity back to the council so they can all work to create a stronger city for the citizens of Moreno Valley.
7. Above all the chaos that has plagued the Council Chambers at City hall for years is now positive and up lifting.
The positive successful changes in the Mayor’s office have been a direct result of his decision to bring Vivian Moreno in as his assistant. There is only one more pressing issue the Mayor needs to take on to put the city of Moreno Valley in the good hand to direct it into the 21st century. The Mayor now has the support of many civic and regional leaders throughout Riverside County, the staff, and his peers. We all believe Mayor Jesse Molina will be in a great position to be the first elected Mayor of the City.
The leadership, direction, and transparency, is finally on its way to the city of Moreno Valley thanks to the Mayor, Jesse Molina and his assistant and good friend Vivian Moreno….. The staff of the city has now reached out to the Mayor and thirtymilesofcorruption.com by emailing inconsistencies within city government.
NOW AN UPDATE ON THE CEA LETTER SENT TO MO VAL MAYOR AND COUNCIL TO REMOVE MORENO:
CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE TO VIEW MVMA MEMBER EMAIL
Just received, it appears that the Moreno Valley Management Association (MVMA) under the auspices of their representative Union, the City Employees Association (CEA), actually never notified their members that a letter would be sent to the Mayor and Council regarding the Molina’s Volunteer Legislative Aide, Vivian Moreno. This means, according to the above email all 72 members were never briefed or notified of the intent to send a letter to Moreno Valley City Council and the Mayor. According to the MVMA member, the MVMA Board also never included their 72 members in vote with reference to the removal of Moreno. Therefore, in consort with this members account, it leads to the inference that the MVMA’s hierarchy may be in disaray, therefore leads to the person in charge, MVMA President Felicia London. Who has unfortunately declined to comment on the letter when contacted by the PE. Did London contact the CEA for Julie Reyes, to initiate the letter for the removal of Moreno? That is the question, because as you see below she is up for promotion. We made mention if the City Manager, Assistant City Manager and Administrative Director could have been involved? We asked the question, “Where was Administrative Director Chris Paxton in all this?” If there was a personal problem, did London contact Paxton first, as is policy in most cities, before going to the Union?
The original letter dated September 22, 2105 was sent to Council and Mayor, with CC: Michelle Dawson, Tom De Santis, Chris Paxton and MVMA Board by CEA Labor Representative Nikita “Nik” Soukonnikov, according to the below email. On the CEA site, Soukonnikov states that he an attorney in the State of Oregon, I would assume that is as far as it goes, he’s not an attorney in the State of California, actually sent the email with the attached letter to the Mayor and Council of Moreno Valley. Why did “Nik” send the letter knowingly unsigned? In the following article, it appears that CEA Labor Representative “Nik” Soukonnikov represented the West Hollywood’s City Council Deputies. Get this folks, the West Hollywood City Council Deputies has a Union Membership of “Five!” Yes that is right, “Five!“

This completely contradicts the statements made by CEA Director Robin Nahin from our first posting. From a phone conversation by TMC attorney, Nahin indicated that the letter should have been signed by a MVMA Board Member. Though the signature line on the letter would otherwise indicate that it was to be signed by a CEA representative!
What is now quite remarkable is that MVMA Board President Felicia London is up for promotion, 30 days later according to the following documents drawn up and prepared by Chris Paxton, Administrative Director (AKA Human Resources). This was also approved or signed off to go forward for approval by the Budget Officer, City Manager Michelle Dawson and City Attorney. Her new position will be Senior Accountant, from Management Analyst.

The bottom line, it leads us to believe that the one person involved would be MVMA President Felicia London. Remarkably, this is the one who person who was elected by MVMA to represent the 72 mid level managers, but did not give her members notification or allowed them to vote on Moreno issue. Why?
Time and time again when there is problems with city finances, it is always about the City Manager who controls the purse. In the Beaumont case, as in every city, we see how this has been problematic. Problematic in the sense that there was a failure to communicate, or a failure to purposely not communicate. Therefore, the answer is for the Council to make the “mind right” for the benefit of the taxpayers, the Council and Mayor.
So if we have a “failure to communicate,” with the aspect that “some men/women just can’t be reached,” who do we have as an entity that is a cheerleader for the community/taxpayer? Therefore, do these individuals need to be dealt with “in a proper manner”?
What we find is that the problem in most Cities, is the City Manager, and how they utilize their “power” over their staff. Do they actually utilize their “power” politically to help the “elected?”
And for the record, “I don’t like it,” but the focus should be on the “taxpayer,” and the benefit to “them.” Possibly, Councilman Jeff Gibba and George Price may not like the “truth,” but they took an “oath” to uphold and protect the taxpayer! We hope they do….
