CITY OF RIVERSIDE: MEASURE C : HAVING AN ELECTRICAL MELT DOWN TYPE OF DAY?

Posted: November 9, 2021 in racist, Uncategorized

Is the City of Riverside Having an Electrical Melt Down?  These City People Don’t Give a Dam About You, Except Themselves!

According to the Pravda Press Enterprise, the election certification of Riverside’s Measure C is temporarily blocked till January 2022.  A group of residents, calling themselves ‘Riversider’s Against Increased Taxes’ filed a lawsuit back in September 2021, alleging the measure was illegally placed on the ballot because tax measures, under state law, must be brought to voters in general elections.  According to the groups attorney, Chad D. Morgan, “Our contention is it never should have been on the ballot in the first place.”  Which is correct, the City has no legal authority at a local city level to place a general tax on the ballot.  The City knew it and instead, placed it on the ballot as a Charter Amendment, which is also illegal.

Riverside activist Jason Hunter, stated that “he has told the City that the overcharging practice is illegal, and believes judge’s decision will prevail in January.”  What the City of Riverside has done is deceive the ratepayers, have stolen money from the ratepayers in the Billions, lied to the the Court, placed an illegal initiative on the ballot and told you will lose City services if you don’t vote on this!  This guys are outrageously brazen, sounds similar to a Trans National Criminal Organization.  To boot, City of Riverside Spokes Hole Phil Pitchford declined to comment!  How about that?  Guilty as Charged?  What do you think folks? Don’t forget to give me your comments.

First, the fact that the Electric General Fund Transfer Measure, known as Measure C passed under the circumstance of a Charter Amendment Folks, Is Illegal!  The City of Riverside knows it and they will be challenged and sued on this action, as they currently are.  According to the Pravda Press Enterprise, In a settlement of that suit, the city agreed to seek voter authorization this fall for the practice “as a general tax.”  So the City folks, LOL, agreed to the Courts Ruling, but placed the Measure as a Charter Amendment, outright defying the Court!  Just Remember, the electoral body of the City of Riverside has lied to you as well, these are the City Council Members and the Mayor Patricia Dawson, who blatantly, supported this measure against you, the rate payers.  Don’t ever forget that!

Not only was this November’s Election on the General Fund Transfer Electric Measure, known as Measure C, considered a Special Election (below), but according to Article XIIIC Section 2(b) of the California State Constitution, Measure C is considered a General Tax.  This section of the Constitution states the following:  “No local government may impose, extend, or increase any GENERAL TAX unless and until that tax is submitted to the electorate and approved by a majority vote. […] The election required by this subdivision shall be consolidated with a regularly scheduled GENERAL election for members of the governing body of the local government.”  In other words, it must first go to the California Legislate.  The Law Makers, Folks.  Therefore, the election was not valid, but Illegal!
Only in the City of Riverside would you be asked to vote for an Illegal tax in an Illegal Election.  So again, Vote ‘No’ on the next Measure Whatever they name the next one? … if in fact it is a VALID election?

 

Scott Simpson a local Community Taxpayer Activist, was a former Chief of Enforcement for the State of California EPA Department of Toxic Substances Control, and also worked for the Department of Food and Agriculture in their Environmental Hazards Assessment Program specializing in ground water contamination, said this about the legality of the General Fund Transfer Electric Measure, known as Measure C:  “The City of Riverside wants you the voters to approve a tax upon the gross revenue of the City Electric Utility. In effect applying a new income tax upon a government agency.  This is constitutionally forbidden. The State and its’ municipalities are Sovereign entities exempt from taxation upon its’ government activities. Only the state legislature can do this and they have chosen not to do so.  Sovereignty is not discretionary, the City nor the voters cannot wave it.  One government agency cannot tax another agency without express statutory authorization – which does not exist for the taxation of income.”

People, that’s why the City will not call it a tax, because they have no legal jurisdiction or right to legally pass a tax.  Only the California State Legislature can!  That is why Measure C was placed on the ballot as a Charter Amendment.  Again they are making the same mistake they did with the General Fund Transfer Water Measure, known as Measure A in 2012.  Even if Measure C passes, it will be challenged again…. Simply, because it is Illegal and Constitutionally Forbidden.  Our current City Attorney Phaedra Norton knows this, but is misinforming the Council and who ever else who will listen to her.

Further, “…the foregoing rule of construction precludes one arm of state government from taxing another arm absent express authorization.” Sacramento Municipal Utility District v. County of Solano, supra, at 54 Cal. App.4th 1167.”

Below is the Community College Measure, back in 2020, also known as Measure A.  Not to be confused with the General Fund Transfer Water Measure in 2011, also known as Measure A.

Here is a list of people including your current City Council Members Erin Edwards, Ward 1; Ronaldo Fierro, Ward 3; Gabriela Plascencia, Ward 5, Jim Perry, Ward 6, even former ousted Councilmember Andy Melendrez, Ward 2 and Current Mayor Patricia Lock Dawson that supported the Community College Measure A. They don’t give one expressed dime of interest of what concerns you, now that they are in office!  Their promises died when you voted for them.  Here are the Scum Bags you should know about and voted for!  Why would anyone vote on a Measure that literally Screwed You?

         

Remember, the Community College Measure A didn’t pass.  You spoke, my Community Family, my Taxpayer Family, but remember, these folks are not part of your Family!  You wisely sent the message, of no more money on the Community College Measure A!  Take a good long look at this list, these are the people who work in public service or were elected, or have some connection to the Taxpayer Gravy Train. These people also supported the current General Fund Transfer Electric Measure, known as Measure C.  They promised to look out for you, the taxpayer, but you should really know now, they represent a different group of people, and it is certainly not you.  Remember Folks,  the people on this list are not your friends or do they have your best interest at heart as ratepayers and taxpayers… even though you voted for them, they are not fighting for you!  They act as if they are your Family, but are not!

Check City of Riverside Pensions below.  Take a good look, this is the Gravy Train of Pensions you pay for!  It’s Unsustainable, because their is not enough property tax revenue to sustain it.  Why?  Because the Council are plain stupid!  In the Private Sector, these types of pension are never seen.  If they were seen, hypothetically, you should be paying way lower property taxes to begin with.

It’s simple folks, the City works like your Household, you have so much money coming in, and you distribute it accordingly to your expenses.  The City of Riverside spends money like a drunken sailor, then they come around like a Transnational Criminal Organizational to coerce you to give more money!  This is Mafia type organizational tactics.  Don’t Give In!

 

In the future, anytime these Entitled Elitist ask for more money, then threatened you, that your services will be cut.  Keep a weary eye!  Who says stuff like this?  Your Public Servants at the City of Riverside Does!  Remember them when election time comes up again.  They only want your money!  And they want more of it, for their High Unsustainable Pensions and Excessive Salaries!

High and Unsustainable Salaries!  In the Private Sector, you have to bring back double your income in order to reflect the cost of your salary and bring a profit back to the company.  You would actually have to prove to the company that you are an asset!

           

City of Riverside Attorney Phaedra Norton states, “Measure C was put on the ballot for the purpose of maintaining general City services as 9-1-1 response, fire, paramedic, police, street repairs, parks, senior services, addressing homelessness and other city services.”  Yep, but doesn’t mention the fact that ‘other city services’ such as unsustainable salaries and pensions is what the Measure C is really about.  According to this new propaganda ad brought to you by City Contracted Unions.  We find, this isn’t about City Services, of which you pay a high price for!  …. and according to the constituents… there is no satisfying service.  It is about the Public Servants Well Being!  You have to ask the question of why these people, like Phaedra, have to High Tail It Out of Cities they worked in, to work in other City’s.  Then leave that City, when exposed, then leave to another.

We have seen this happen before, it is not about you, it is who they cater too, and it is not you!

Above, you can see who received the job to print pamphlets the GCC/IBT a.k.a. the Teamsters!  Next to the logo, you can find who is “Paid For by Yes on Measure C.”  Just Google the Address: PO Box 7817, Riverside, CA 92513.  Where does the Campaign for Yes On Measure C reside?  LOL! The Riverside City Fire Fighters Association/ UnionYep Protecting Life and Property, but not your Wallet!  Wow! Isn’t Your Wallet Property?

So it certainly looks as if you the taxpayers were simply getting Hosed by the City of Riverside Fire Department!  Remember, they don’t like you, they are not your friends!  They receive a lot of money for simply putting water on fires….

The Firefighter just found out this person Voted against Measure C

The Tricksters at the City of Riverside have another ingenious way of calling the steal of more taxpayers monies, regarding the General Fund Transfer Electric Measure, known as Measure C…. hope you are sitting down folks, they are calling it “The City of Riverside Services Protection Measure.”   We all know it was not about protecting your already bad city services, but the pockets of public employee unions and the pockets of the cities executive employees, oh, let’s not forget their high pensions.  So what they are telling us, is that the taxes the City already collects is not enough? Evidently So.  By these Water and  Electric General Fund Transfers, the City has double taxed us!  So What is actually the purpose of a City if they treat the Tax Paying Residents and Ratepayers this way?  Good Question.

According to the Front Page of this City Of Riverside pamphlet, they advertise an “Impartial Analysis” of Measure C by newly christened City Attorney Phaedra Norton.  LOL, What Gives!

What does that mean folks?  Well, the real meaning of Impartial means ” Treating all rivals or disputants equally; fair and just. Independent and Impartial advice.”  Analysis means “detailed examination of the elements or structure of something.”  As former fired City Manager John Russo, who had a questionable past.  It may time to do the same with Norton, simply, because we at TMC knows the game.  She is part of the Recycled Trash that continues to invade our City and other Cities, and who continue to challenge your rights as taxpayers.  We also saw this explicitly with former Riverside City Attorney Gregory Priamos.  Just search Thirty Miles of Corruption.

Here it is folks, the full “Impartial Analysis” by our new City Attorney Phaedra Norton, and I can tell you she is one shyster!  Of course it is priceless.  The first statement she makes is the following:  The Charter Amendment would continue the transfer of revenue from the City’s electric utility fund to the City’s general fund for the purpose of maintaining general city services such as 9-1-1 response, fire, paramedic, police (LOL, actually some of the City Council members actually want to defund the police), street repairs (LOL, how many pot holes did you hit just going to the grocery store?), Parks (Look at how they have been maintained), Senior Services(when have they ever cared about Seniors, Only Their Vote.), Addressing Homelessness (Remember, Homeless People aren’t taxpayers) and other General Services, which lax to begin with.  All lies folks.  She didn’t even sign the letter, that’s why they redacted it.  Who does that?  Of course, The City of Riverside Cartel always have something to hide!

In 2012 we went down this road when we sued the City of Riverside.  Our focus was to represent the taxpaying residents regarding the General Fund Transfer Water Measure, known as Measure A.  It violated Prop 218.  The Court found that the action of taking money from the Public Water Utility was Illegal. When we brought it to then City Attorney Gregory Priamos, they pretty much told us to go ‘POUND SAND!’  It didn’t stop there, former Mayor Ron Loveridge, a real bad hombre, also knew about this.  We know we are violating the law, “So Sue Us!,”  We did, with San Diego Attorney Eric Benink.  So what happened?  We Won.  The City of Riverside violated the law in reference to Prop 218.  When you think the City would learn something after this, LOL, they went and did it again!  Then Eric came back again to sue the City of Riverside in Parada vs. City of Riverside, and won a standing in 2021 withe regards to the General Fund Electric Transfer, as you well know now.  For the record, we, the Moreno’s, never received a penny for services as in the Parada Case did.  We worked extremely hard on the Water Law Suit, spent many hours, even days, because we felt it was the right thing to do for the Ratepayers of the City of Riverside.  It wasn’t about compensation, but it was all about the right thing to do.  It was all about residential rate payers families!  While all this is going on the Council and the Mayor are clueless as to what is really going on in their City.

But of course the City never learns, instead of following the law, they attempted to undermine the process and place the current Electric Measure as a Charter Amendment, hence, Measure C.  Current City Attorney Phaedra Norton should immediately be fired for misinforming the Council, negligent legal advice and lying to the ratepayers. (as seen in the above letter.)

At the time, this was our accumulated defense against Measure A.  The City of Riverside continued to lie to the taxpaying residents.  Did they again rig the election? We have no idea.  But What We do Know, Is That They Lied, they also violated the Law and the California State Constitution.  Just as the infamous Water Measure A in 2012 and was passed under the same circumstances, is also currently being challenge under the same laws. 

We even questioned back in 2013 if the General Fund Transfer Water Measure, known as Measure A, was it illegal as written?  Well, currently, we found the City of Riverside did the same thing.  The Courts told them the General Fund Electric Transfer was General Tax, the City placed it on the ballot as a Charter Amendment, defying the Court.  Remember, every time you turn the faucet for water you are being taxed.  Every time you turn the switch on your home to turn on that light, you are being tax.  How is is that?  Public Utilities is Owned by the Public!  Go Figure folks, these are not good people who serve you.

Now, as you know, Historically, the City of Riverside owns…. owns our Water Resources in the form of a Public Utility.  That means if you purchase a home in the City, you basically have water rights, and should only be charged for what it takes to get that water to your faucet.  Also, we have our own Water Board, therefore, the State has no authority to make any rules or laws to alter that.  Recently, what has happened, as reported in Pravda Press Enterprise, is the State of California is undergoing an extreme drought.  Gee, I wonder why folks?  Maybe because they never upgraded or developed new infrastructure to coincide with new developments to handle water needs?  You would think!  The same argument could be said about wild fires, if you don’t maintain the land properly you have a problem.  But, the easy way out is to chalk it up to some fairy tale, called Climate Change.

Well according to the Pravda Press Enterprise, this is what the State of California plans to do as reported. The declaration by the MWD board follows an Oct. 19 proclamation by Gov. Gavin Newsom of a statewide drought emergency.  Newsom had previously issued the declaration for other parts of the state, but his October extension added eight counties that had originally been excluded — Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, San Bernardino, Ventura, Imperial and San Francisco.  They are simply going to override your right, to your rightful access, to your public water utility.  They are going to tell you how much you can use, simply because they didn’t do their homework, and they were focused on other things of importance, such as High Speed Rail.  Yep, High Speed Rail to No Where!

But I digress, continuing our saga on higher unsustainable salary and pension measures.  We went down that road with the Sales Tax Initiative, known as Measure Z.  Remember how hard Police Union President Brian Smith fought for Sales Tax Measure Z.  Then the City claimed the same problems…. simply, it wasn’t about you the taxpaying residents and your city services, it was all about Pensions.  Approximately 80% of Riverside Taxpayer Revenue goes to Public Pensions.  When you wonder why your street pot holes are not filled, your trash is delayed and your trees are not properly cut, well it is because these entitled public servants really don’t really give a sh*t.  The majority of the City of Riverside Operating Budget goes to Salaries and Pensions; approximately 80%; the rest, if not less, goes to Services to You! Less than 20%.  A Big Bone of NOTHING!  How many pot holes have you hit today in your City just going to the grocery store?  When have your trees been properly cut and how many branches have fallen because of neglect? You can’t even get your trash picked up on schedule.

The picture below shows the RUSD Board Member and Fire Union and all together having a good time after the passing of Measure A back in 2013!  Tim Strack, president of the Riverside City Firefighter in center, raises his fist as the first results of Measure A came in, at the Orange Crest Club in Riverside, at left, Tom Hunt of the school board and writing in the totals is Dave Austin, on Tuesday, June 4, 2013.

This is what taxpayers hate!  These Assholes enumerating themselves, but not creating any savings or a value to benefit the taxpayers.  The reality has set in, these dirt bags have only thought about how many ways to screw a taxpayer.  Take a good look at these individuals..they are not your friends or your supporters, they are working to take your money, by any means possible. Here we see these Union People, Tim Strack President of the Riverside Fighter Unions and Dave Austin, Deputy Chief of the Riverside City Fire Department.  Oh there’s Tom Hunt of the Riverside Unified Board of Education, what does he have to gain by all this?

The jig is up, everyone knows the scam and it is time to become transparent with the real financial issues facing our fare city.  If Measure C passes, as it did, as many ratepayers in the City have stated, was the election rigged?  It always seems the ratepayers never win.

Again, they approved Measure O, approved to repair schools.  They lied, and instead they are using the monies to build schools.  But with the new illegal school projects, which they don’t actually have student counts to actually fill them, continue to be built.  This in lieu of recent statistics that the majority of student can barely read, write, comprehend or due basic math.  We need to ask those questions to to RUSD Board Member Tom Hunt, Former RUSD Board Member and Current Mayor of the City of Riverside Patricia Dawson.

Even the School Counselor at North High School (She counsels your high school teens!) and current City Council Member Gaby Plascencia who has Two Ethics Complaints and has been deemed a Racist by her verbal statements made on race.  But still supported by another race baiting politician non other than Assemblyman Jose Medina.  By the way, he was another individual who came out of the Public Educational System, and thinks he knows best for children.  Just as his Assembly Bill 101 to make all children in the Public School System take an Ethics Study Course.  This will help combat racism, I’m sure that is what he is thinking.  In my eyes it is perceived and manufactured racism.  I can tell you from experience, I took a course in Ethnic Studies in the 70’s, and it was ‘victimization studies,’ which led to conditioning in Marxist and Socialistic Ideology.  That was a waste of time.  Oh, by the way, my instructor in the USCLA, was a former Brown Beret.  Now these same people are calling “Moi,” a ‘Latino White Supremacist.’  Go Figure!  These are the people who are conditioning your children’s minds, folks!  These are people who cannot teach your children the basics of how to read, write, comprehend and do basic math, but can certainly tell them what they should think.  Agitated yet?  You should be.

    Javier, the second to last sentence in my quoted statement contains a typo. Please correct it to say, “Soverienty is not discretionary, the city and the voters cannot waive it.
    great article!

  2. Raychele Sterling says:

    It never ceases to amaze me the complete ineptness of the City Attorneys Office. I can’t imagine the money that has been wasted because of their incompetence. They are equally naive to think that Jason, I, Dvonne, Scott, Kevin,Viv & Javier have dropped our fight to vindicate the ratepayers.

  3. Madonna Daehlie says:

    $10.7 million and counting – assuming we’re getting the truth – to Cheech up what was te downtown library. I mean, he has enough money to pay for it, but, why fucking bother when we can get stuck with the bill.. Am I right?

    Measure C this.. Jack up the prices that. We can’t afford shit, but, hey.. We got the Cheech and the Hampton and $25 hamberders. While we drown in drugs and crime and homelessness.

    Riverside… Your very own third-world city!

    Fire them all… Starting with Lock-Dawson and Edwards.
