CITY OF RIVERSIDE: HUDSON………….BIGAMIST?

Posted: June 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

HUDSON……….BIGAMIST?  WHILE HONEYMOONING IN SACRAMENTO HE HASN’T QUITE FINISHED THE DIVORCED PROCESS WITH RIVERSIDE, IS HE PLAYING THE FIELD?  WHILE THE CITY IS ON THE REBOUND, WILL THEIR CHOICE FOR A NEW CITY MANAGER BE CLOUDED BY THE STING OF THE BREAK-UP?

In lieu of Hudson’s remaining two year obligation with the city, he currently has yet to submit a letter of resignation to the City of Riverside.  He will be leaving for his new position with sacramento August 14, 2011.   More than likely Chief Financial Officer Paul Sundeen will be leaving, that’s usually the case when the king leaves.  But, will any of his staff be leaving with him, such as Belinda Graham, Tina English, Deanna Lorson, or newly highered Emilio Ramirez? So who will be the one to take power?  Councilman Mike Gardner said the city has not yet selected an interim city manager.  But it likely will be one of Hudson’s hires.  So, will one remain to City Manager or Interim City Manager, and the rest stay or leave?  Rumor has it, the City of Pasadena’s Michael beck may be a candidate.   But will he actually come back to a mess he left when he was Assistant City Manager, of course,  with Brad Hudson?  Well, Michael Beck also has a track record under Hudson.  Michael Beck was one who was also waiting in line behind Tom DeSantis for his specially ordered custom badge, mirroring those of RPD.  Other city officials, Hudson said, felt the badges would be useful if he, DeSantis or Beck were confronted while removing signs.  We couldn’t find anybody to corroborate that, Ok, yeah…   Then there was the guns, then there was the cold plates.  Beck, said that cold plates were put on used vehicles acquired from local dealerships for him, Hudson and DeSantis. The vehicles were purchased after the city started assigning cars to the administrators rather than giving them a car allowance.  But Michael, were some vehicles used by the council actually purchased from the restrictive Police Asset Forfeiture funds?   Will Hudson regroup his posse and possible rehire Ex-Assistant City Manager Tom DeSantis, or bring up current Assistant Manager Belinda Graham?  The second rumour is Siobhan Foster, with her background in Finance, will she be the one to take power of the City Managers seat, now that she is aware of the sorted details concerning pot holes?

Questions abound regarding Brad Hudson’s decision to leave Riverside.  Is it because he understands the books better than the city council or mayor?  Is it because of the enormous bond debt which will come due July 1, 2012?  His discretionary slush fund spending?  To the tune of over 25 million, then suddenly went down this year when a citizen brought it to the councils attention last year.    Or did the Connie Leach Grand Jury Investigation served to the City of Riverside instigate Brad to make a quick get away?  How long will the council and mayor continue to fall of sting of rejection after last weeks love fest, especially Steve Adams, who appears would marry him if he could. The question is, why would you leave his base salary of $295,000.00 to make $258,000.00 in  Sacramento?  Did the City of Riverside actually pay Brad Hudson to much?  Or is he leaving because of the many restrictive inter-agency fund transfers.  Once transferred to a non-restrictive account, were then part of a web of inter-fund transfers reaching their proposed and intended salacious goals?

Will an independent forensic audit of the the city accounts be implemented when Brad Hudson leaves, in order to get a baseline for the next City Manager?  Accountability and Transparency may be non-existent in City Hall, but TMC will ask the questions.  The questions the community of Riverside are now asking.

UPDATE:06/21/2011: BRAD HUDSON CONFIRMED AS SACRAMENTO COUNTY CHIEF EXECUTIVE WITH A FIVE YEAR CONTRACT.   OFF TO SUCKERMENTO AUGUST 12, 2011.
