The Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce, according to this flyer, is conducting a Business Seminar Series, “Doing Business with the City and County.”  They claim that you will walk away knowing how to navigate County of Riverside and City of Riverside online bidding processes, how to apply to be an approved vendor, and finally, how to be considered for upcoming government projects, services and products (I guess they will show you how to be part of the special, “in crowd,” of vendors or contractors).

Suspicious?  You should be.  The Chamber will be charging members $35 and non-members $75, in order to turn a profit off public employees the taxpayers of this City and County are paying salaries for.  Was their time away from the office also donated by the taxpayer?  Can every other non-profit in the area expect similar commitments from staff, or is this just a freebie you get when you host the Mayor’s State of the City Address?

These speakers are Virginia Wilson, Contract Compliance Officer County of Riverside,  Art Torres, Purchasing and Services & Risk Manager for the City of Riverside and Shiloh Rogers, Procurement & Contract Specialist for the City of RiversideSome have noticed that Ms. Rogers has reached the position of Procurement & Contract Specialist, whereby just recently she was working the front desk for the Department of Finance.  Well congratulations, that was quick!  Keep it up and we think you could become a rising star in the River City…and on this blog.

    unbelievable!

    Do these city officials believe that they are gods? They just do whatever they want. It’s so nice to know that somebody is holding them accountable to some degree.

    We must stand up, united, and show them(peacefully) that they’re not representing us accordingly and that it upsets us.

    the words ” no taxation without representation” are currently echoing through my mind.

    when will the people decided that finally had enough?

  2. So, let me get this straight:
    In order to do business with the people whose salaries are paid by me, to serve me, . . . I need to pay extra to hear what they say, and even more if I am not a member of their special club?

    I would like a job where I get paid an exorbitant salary and benefits by “the people” then charge “the people” to come and hear me talk to them about how “the people” can do business with me.

    Mark and Justin,
    The more the Council feels comfortable to do anything they want, they will do as they please. Very few on the Council will think of the community first before their decisions.
    This past Tuesday, they increased the utilities again! If only the regular few that speaks out about the decisions they do, they will continue to pass more items to get money out of your wallet!
    1. The shell game is still in effect.
    2. Clainvthey don’t have nibey, But, gave over a half a million to The Chambers! Does anyone know how rich the chambers is? They probably have more money than the city! They have our money. They ask for theitlr own purposes for the Mayor and the Council to approve. Getting rid of the downtown terminal and Greyhound, it will NOT stop panhandling in their area! And, if we lose Greyhound, we have lost our contact of our historical perspective of Greyhound bringing local heroes back hone! I used Greyhound twice last year. I would have used it more if I didn’t get sick. This year, I’m tentatively planning to go to Colorado. I will have to use Greyhound to Los Angekes and ,then,in the smaller cities!
    We need to maintain current levels of transportation. If we don’t, we are taking a step back in transportation access! Just because those in power don’t use it, those of us that do need it. And, proud to use it!
