WILL THIS LEGAL CLOWN FROM THE GOVERNMENT BIG TOP FINALLY BE SENT TO BIG HOUSE?

According to a newly releases internal audit targeting outside legal expenditures of former City Attorney Greg Priamos’ office, taxpayers have much to be concerned about.  TMC brought this issue to light directly to the City Council several times over the years, and in two specific stories – one in 2012 and the other followup in 2014 – only to be ignored.  However, the real purveyor of this issue was community activist, Kevin Dawson, who has been bringing this issue to the forefront of City Council for the past five years, of course, on deaf ears.

Will this finally be what will break the camel’s back as far as Priamos’ career in municipal law goes?  For many years we have been attempting, in the name of transparency, to retrieve public records, which would finally shed some light on the expenditures by the City of Riverside’s Attorney Office.  No records were ever found, or as City lingo goes, “we found no documents responsive to your request,” or the documents we requested violated the “Attorney/Client Privilege.”

We ask the question: did the City Attorney’s Office go rogue?  Didn’t anyone do a background check into Priamos? Just like, did anyone do a background check on former City Manager Brad Hudson?  Hudson was not only had a history of credit card fraud, but attempted to attain concealed weapons permit using the Riverside City Hall address as his “home address.”

Do ethics matter?  When Riverside was using Mayer Hoffmann McCann as their external auditor, Ken Al-Iman from MHM  worked as an adviser for locally-connected law firm, Best, Best & Krieger.  While MHM was doing Riverside’s books, former City Manager, Brad Hudson, hired Al-Imam’s son, Jason Al-Imam, who experienced a meteoric rise, eventually being named Controller for Riverside.

We believe ethics do matter, and make note of Mayor William Bailey’s eulogy at Hudson’s farewell party that Hudson was his, “moral compass.”  How appropriate that both these individuals have a background of, “ill repute.”  Of course we’d be remiss to leave out former Mayor Ron Loveridge from the picture, who appears to still be the puppeteer of all events of concern involving the politics of the city of Riverside.

So back to the audit: the report was grim to say the least, and the findings were what most of Riverside’s watchdogs had believed for many years.  Priamos did not: 1) follow the City’s competitive selection process for procuring outside legal counsel and 2) execute written contracts/agreements.  Written contracts/agreements insure that the taxpayers are not overcharged and also help prevent abuses such as potential conflicts of interest, failure to provide timely service and perception of favoritism/nepotism.  For example, the law firm of Roth Carney Knudsen LLP did business with the City for years.  It also happens to be law firm of now-Senator Richard Roth, the husband of Cindy Roth, who is the CEO/President of the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce, who happens to milk the City every opportunity she has.

JUNE 2015 GRAND JURY REPORT ON FORMER CITY ATTORNEY/CURRENT COUNTY COUNSEL GREG PRIAMOS’ BOORISH BEHAVIOR.   The Grand Jury panel recommended training for clown Priamos, not the other way around, as he arrogantly implied they needed.  The panel noted that Priamos has interfered with their investigations, and that he has given misleading advice to county employees.  That wasn’t groundbreaking news to TMC: Priamos had given misleading/self-serving advice to city employees and electeds here in Riverside for over a decade.

The Grand Jury has accused Priamos of 10 violations as follows, (sounds like another Bar Complaint): Conflict of Interest and Secrecy; Transparency and Accountability; Inaccurate, Incomplete and Misleading Statements; Obstruction of the Grand Jury; Choice of Having Council Violations; Violation of Board Policy C-35; Riverside County Executive Office Violation; Violation of Code of Ethics (he is incidentally writing the code of ethics book for the California League of Cities); Failure to Provide Upjohn Warning; and Superior Court Case Violations.

 2015 Grand Jury Report – Riverside County Office of County Counsel, Greg Priamos (click this link to view)

Back in 2013, former County Counsel Pamela Walls fired off a letter to Priamos, while he was City Attorney, that he violated the confidentiality of the Grand Jury in its probe into City Police Procedures.  Of course, Priamos denied the charge.  Well not so fast, the letter is part of the Grand Jury report as seen below.

Was the Grand Jury attempting to tell Priamos that there is a, “failure to communicate,” and possibly there are, “some men that just can’t be reached?”  Therefore these individuals need to be dealt with “in a proper manner”?  Gregory, there are some who say you are a sociopath, and we’d like to to extend our desire to help.  As LMU and USC graduates (just like you), you know we are practically family.  Is there anything we can do to help you get the treatment you so obviously need?

  1. I say lets have all them all put away for a very long time Priamos, Loveridge, Adkinson, Barber, Boyd, Foster, Adams, Hudson, Beck, Pearson. Lets put all the trash out at once Lets hope there is chance for Riverside to survive but I have doubts Sometimes I’d like to leave and never turn back this only happens in B movies

  2. Scott says:

    City staff and electeds acting like a bunch of criminals?! I say, cut the mayors salary to half-time, cut his office budget to zero, and increase the Council members to full-time pay. The council should runs things not the Mayor and Senior Staff.

    These people have no shame.
