During the time Connie Leach was hired as a consultant, Mayor Ron Loveridge was Department Head for the Youth Council.

Tom Desantis Assistant City manager, signed contracts between the City of Riverside and Connie Leach on behalf of City Manager Brad Hudson.   Paul Sundeen CFO,: Signed all checks issued to Connie Leach.  Mario Lara Assistant to Tom Desantis: all processing activity for P.O.s. went through Mario Lara.  City Clerk,  Coleen Nichols, City Attorney, Greg Priamos, and Assistant to the Mayor, Kristin Tilquest , were all signers on the contracts between the City of Riverside and Connie Leach.

Tuesday,  May 24, 2011 City Council 6:30pm.  We will tell the personal story of Connie Leach PART 2.

Through the  Public Records Act. We were provided with the Police Asset Forfeiture budget from 2003 to 2009 and the City Managers $50,000.00 Discretionary Spending Budget.  All the expenditures were provided without City Council approval.  Everything we found is available for public viewing by request through the City Clerks office of Colleen Nichols 951-826-5557.

Question To The Mayor and City Council: Can a City Managers Discretionary Fund with a Maximum Payout of $50,000.00 for each item.  Can it be possible to spit bill via $50,000 increments for projects which hypothetically may cost $250,000.00, in order to get by City Council approval?   Can the City Manager Fund be at all subject to abuse, do to that fact?
