Cat-Fight

CAT FIGHT OR JUST A MISUNDERSTANDING?

According to the letter written by local Attorney Danuta W. Tusynska, Darlene Trujillo Elliot, Assistant to the Mayor, claims Ms. Kane made some disparaging remarks about race.  Both Elliot and Kane work for Mayor William Rusty Bailey.  The letter states that Ms. Elliott has potential causes of action against the City of Riverside for race and national origin discrimination and failure for the City to provide a discrimination-free environment.  Chief of Staff to the Mayor, Maureen Kane was specifically targeted.

Tuzynska stated that the examples indicated of the discrimination was a sampling, as if to indicated that there are more claims to come.  She also threw in that harassment was involved.  Some of the complaints were as follows:  Ms Kane routinely used the phrase “your people” to Ms. Elliot.  Ms. Kane stated to Darlene that her daughter was having a “Mexican” party and everyone was dressing up like Mexicans.  What is quite remarkable is the “Mexican” party that Ms. Kane was referring to was actually a Quinceañera, held for her own daughter, which is a Hispanic/Mexican traditional ceremony with reference to coming of age.  What people don’t know or is not indicated, does Ms. Kane come from a Hispanic background?  Or was this a mere cat fight between two Latina co-workers?

Mr. Elliot also indicated that Ms. Kane told her that she would be transferred to Parks and Recreation department, against her wishes.  When she fell to the pressure, she asked for her prior position as Principle Management Analyst in Public Utilites, but was denied that.  Elliot also claimed that Ms. Kane falsely described the involuntary transfer as a “promotion.”

Complaint Letter from Law Offices of Danuta Tuszynska       Findings Letter from Robert Hansen

Of course, the City responded with Ms. Kane’s story and you can see the full disclosures by the City and by Elliot’s Attorney by clicking the links above.  Incidentally, the letter was written by Robert Hansen, Deputy City Attorney for the City of Riverside and former City Attorney for Moreno Valley.

Deputy City Attorney Robert L. Hansen

The rumor through the grapevine is that the City of Moreno Valley wants him back, but on the same token Hansen has also applied for the job of Riverside City Attorney.  Well, the Attorney denies that Ms. Kane made those references to “your people” and “Mexican” party, which if it did happen, I believe you are given that free card especially if you are both from Hispanic backgrounds, therefore no discrimination, especially when it indicates that Ms. Kane’s daughters first language was Spanish.  You can read the details of the response by Hansen, but he denies that Ms. Kane ever told Ms. Elliot that she was being transferred.  The bottom line is that Ms. Elliot continues to be employed and working in the Office of the Mayor in her official capacity or position.

IN PASADENA, FIRING “WITHOUT CAUSE” GET’S YOU THE LOTTERY, THANKS TO CITY MANAGER MICHAEL BECK!  According to the Pasadena Star News the two fired employees City of Pasadena’s Public Works Director Siobhan Foster and Finance Directory Andrew Green will cost the taxpayers $275,000.00 to make them go away.  In what world does a “fired” employee get a lottery win with reference to a payout?  Only in the “public sector,” this my friends, would never happen in the “private sector.”  Then what usually seems to happen, is that these two people will be picked up or recycled by other cities to implement the same schemes until they are outed once again.  Remember City of Pasadena, you lost $6.4 million in taxpayer monies that may never be recovered due to the oversight of Siobhan Foster, Andrew Green and City Manager Michael Beck.

NONE

These Two Taxpayer Incompetent Turds will get the following:  Foster will receive six months salary and healthcare benefits totalling $109,425.39. Green’s severance pay totaled $105,840.93.  In addition, Foster will receive a $33,198.21 check for hours worked, car and phone allowances, cash-outs for vacation, management time off and floating holiday hours afforded in her contract. Green will receive a $27,876.65 check. Remember folks, Pasadena’s City Manager Michael Beck was former Assistant City Manager of the City of Riverside, while Pasadena’s Director of Public Works (with no engineering degree) Siobhan Foster, was former City of Riverside’s Public Works Director who made some really bad decisions that not only impacted employees health with the AG Park allegations but created astronomical liabilities for Riverside taxpayers.  Should have our former city attorney take some blame who at the time was former City Attorney Gregory Priamos.

STATE OF THE CITY UPDATE: SPONSORED BY THE GREATER RIVERSIDE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE:  We brought this issue up again because we thought it was important for the public taxpayer to note how a private non-profit the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce has hijacked a public event such as the City of Riverside’s State of the City.  The following shows how public taxpayer monies are spent by purchasing tables that the public can’s sit in, only the department employees of the City, while the public sat in the back.  Gold sponsors paid $1,000 per table.  The monies which are contributed to the Chamber, are not known if they come back to the City as campaign donations or paid plane tickets etc.  The sad part about this activity was that this has been going on for 38 years.

PUBLIC UTILITIES UPDATE: THE “I OWN IT” PROGRAM, IS IT A BIT TO MUCH?  WE FIND THAT OUR PUBLIC UTILITIES MUST HAVE SO MUCH MONEY TO PASS AROUND TOWN TO FOR BUSINESSES TO ADVERTISE.  If this is the case and “We Own It,” referring to me the public, I want a $1,000.00 to be returned to all 100,000 rate payers of the City of Riverside.

SPECIAL CITY COUNCIL MEETING FEBRUARY 6, 2015 AT THE MISSION INN SETS RUMORS ABLAZE!  A noted Special City Council Meeting set to be Friday February 6th at the Mission Inn has set off a blaze of resident concerns.  Why the Mission Inn when we have City Hall?  Why are we paying taxpayer dollars for the San Diego room when we already have a Council Chamber?  Will there be food served?  What’s so important that Council decided to utilize the Mission Inn for a one hour special city council meeting between the hour of 9:00am and 10:00am?  According to a Memorandum from Mayor Pro Tem (second figure below) council will be considering candidates for the City Manager position.   This closed session meeting is also not open to the public, except for public comment at the beginning.  There was a Michael Beck sighting some weeks ago at Riverside City Hall, with all the turmoil in Pasadena, is Beck looking for a way out before possibly being fired?  Is he one of the candidates to be considered for Riverside City Manager?
