richolquin

I brought this story on TMC because many in the community do not know of this brilliant man.  We lost our dear friend Rich Olquin  (51), Tuesday, January, 17, 2017.  He was greatly loved by his community and left a legacy of service that touched us all.  His community involvement extended in the social cultural, medical and educational aspects of life.  The City and County of Riverside were blessed to have such a civic minded individual who gave of himself.

He left his finger prints on many agencies he supported and kept community leaders engaged in the political dialog of current issues.  He sat on commissions, volunteered, was an advisory to political leaders and community groups. Causes Rich cared about were Poverty Alleviation, Civil Rights, Social Action, Children’s Rights, Economic Empowerment, Education, Politics, Disability Issues and Social Services.

Rich served as Co-Chair with the Inland Empire Disabilities Collaborative; President of Next Step Resources, Inc., and Member of Los Amigos of Orange County.  Also was recently appointed to the City of Riverside Commission on Disability in February, 2014.  As of October, 2015 Mr. Olquin was appointed by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to serve on the In Home Support Services/Public Authority Advisory Committee representing the First District.  New ventures has the firm focusing on Veteran’s Affairs while he studies for his Master’s degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling while working with the Reaching New Heights Foundation to aid Veterans suffering from PTSD.

Rich was months away from receiving his Master of Arts in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling/Counselor from California State University San Bernardino; he held a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from University of Phoenix; Associates of Arts in Broadcast Communication, Radio and Television Production and Computer Animation from Fullerton College; and Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from California State University Los Angeles.

He is survived by his fiancé Alysia Webb; his sister, Cynthia Boyd; his three much loved dogs, Daisy, Dakota and Chinook.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, especially us…

All are welcome to his Memorial to celebrate his life.  It will be held Saturday, February 4, 2017 at the home of Councilman Paul Davis; 1091 Crestbrook Drive, Riverside, CA  92506

WHAT IS MEASURE Z?

Measure Z is a November ballot initiative that will increase the sales tax from 7.75% to 8.75% in the City, or in other words from 8-cents per dollar to 9-cents per dollar. Currently, the City of Riverside receives 1-cent per dollar in tax from the 8-cents with the balance going to the State and County. Measure Z will increase the City’s portion to 2-cents per dollar in sales tax.

WHY DO THEY SAY THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR MEASURE Z?

The City of Riverside has simply spent and continues to spend more money than it takes in. They have blamed a shortage of personnel in their finance department as well as bad accounting practices for their miserable performance, however, even after they knew or should have known that they were in deficit, they continued spending more money than they had. This money came from the city’s reserves.  An example of their actions is that $4 million of the $7.8 million 2015-2016 deficit was the result of knowingly giving the police department a pay raise that was unbudgeted and unfunded. The effect now is that they have to cut city services to balance the budget.

russozorro

DID CITY MANAGER JOHN RUSSO GET THE MESSAGE FROM THE TAXPAYERS?

MY TOP TEN (10) REASONS FOR VOTING “NO”

#10. The City of Riverside’s portion of sales tax revenue will go up 100% or $50 million annually, while the actual annual deficit is only $10 million. This $50 million annual increase will continue for at least 20 years: ONE BILLION DOLLARS!!

#9. I believe that the City hired professional consultants at the cost to us of tens of thousands of dollars to manipulate our thinking about the need for this measure. This included the construction of supporting information and presentation materials, the use of wording that is misleading, and a highly questionable telephone survey with questions composed in a fashion designed to indicate citizen support. (1)

#8. Even though police and fire departments could have been left UNTOUCHED for budget cuts, I believe that they were instead included as leverage for a yes vote.

#7. As an example of the effect of the increase, purchasing a $35,000 vehicle will cost residents $350 more. And by the way, you can’t save the extra cost by buying in another city.

#6. Contrary to what the City may have implied, there is no written requirement within the measure to spend ANY of the sales tax increase on operational needs & capital improvements.

#5. The new City employees “Partnership Compensation Model” for some of the privileged city unions, provides larger compensation increases if revenue from Sales tax, Property Tax, Hotel Tax, and Utility Consumption Tax go up. The sales tax increase I believe is the first step toward that end with the others to follow.

Larger city employee raises = larger required pension contributions = larger future financial problems. I believe that personnel levels will spike as the City hires additional employees to soften the burden on current operational department employees.

#4. On top of the cost to residents if this measure passes, utility rates are expected to go up between 7% and 15% next year placing additional strain on household budgets.

#3. Measure A in 2013 which was approved by the voters, was supposed to secure our police and fire departments from the then present and future cuts. But it didn’t. Why should we believe that Measure Z will turn out differently? (2)

#2. About 16% or 52,000 of our neighbors live below the poverty level. These include senior citizens, the disabled, the homeless, and low wage earners. Personally, I don’t want them to have to make tough spending decisions while the City continues on their mindless spending spree. (3)

#1. First and foremost, the same group of individuals who through their ineptitude created the deficit and massive City debt, will make future final decisions on how to spend the huge additional revenue increase.

Approving this measure would be like letting your financial planner who lost you $10,000, have $50,000 a year more of your money to manage. You wouldn’t do that with your nest egg, why would you do it with YOUR tax dollars?

I feel that the City wants TOO MUCH, for TOO LONG, which will HURT TOO MANY, and will be administered by those TOO IRRESPONSIBLE.

I say let the city learn how to manage our money for the next 12 months, then create another ballot initiative with a ten (10) year term at a 1/4 to 1/2 cent increase. If they have demonstrated that they can be trusted with how they spend our money, we should consider approval.   – From the Desk of Ron Todar, Riverside Taxpayer

Here is what one honest former Press Enterprise journalist has to say:

MORE PROPAGANDA FROM THE FIRE FIGHTERS UNIONS: REMEMBER TAXPAYERS, DON’T SUCCUMB TO THEIR “EXTORTION” TACTICS OF LESS SERVICE AND DECREASE RESPONSE TIMES, I WOULD INTERPRET THIS AS A CRIMINAL ACT TO “SHAKE DOWN” THE TAXPAYERS!  THE FIRE UNIONS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE TUNE OF $100,000.00 TO PASS MEASURE Z.  REMEMBER THEY TOLD YOU THE SAME LINE WITH THE WATER MEASURE KNOWN AS MEASURE-A BACK IN 2013.  THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THE TAXPAYER, THEY WILL PROFIT HIGHLY FROM MEASURE-Z IF IT PASSES.  WHY WOULD ANYONE CONTRIBUTE $100,000.00 IF THEY DIDN’T EXPECT TO GET ANYTHING FROM IT?  YOUR CITY COUNCIL LEADERSHIP IS AS FAULT EXPECIALLY MAYOR WILLIAM “RUSTY” BAILEY.

firepe

The propaganda on Measure-Z continues even in advertising on the Press Enterprise by Fire and Police Unions!

THIS IS ALL ABOUT UNFUNDED PENSION LIABILITIES, FIRE AND POLICE ARE NOT CONTRIBUTING THEIR FAIR SHARE, IT’S DISPICABLE!  I BLAME OUR LEADERSHIP FOR UNFORTUNATELY PITTING AND CREATING TENSION BETWEEN THE TAXPAYERS (EMPLOYERS) AND THE PUBLIC SAFETY EMPLOYEES.  REMEMBER FIRE AND POLICE UNIONS ONLY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THEMSELVES AND DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO RUN A BUSINESS.

Can’t tell if this Riverside Tax Payer was Tased by the shock of Higher Sales Taxes, or simply stumbled on the Transparent California Web Site and found out what our Public Employees really make!

The City of Riverside currently has $472 million (and growing daily) in unfunded pension liabilities (money due to employees in the future that has no dedicated revenue stream at the moment).  That’s more than 1 year’s general fund budget – you could shut down City Hall for a year and we’d still be $200 million short.  This is simply not payable, the City’s answer is to pillage the taxpayer for more taxes.  What we have been told by prior City Financial Officers, is that “we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem,” and I’ll leave it there.   As compared to the City of FRESNO, which has NO Unfunded pension liabilities and a $300 million pension surplus!  Go figure.  The City of Fresno is not only doing their City right, they are doing their taxpayers right.  It’s unfortunate that we have a culture of entitlement within the City of Riverside, specifically in public safety employees who believe they are worth more than what the market can bear.

The taxpayer of Riverside has been bullied, strong armed and shakedown by the public employees unions for years, and we are sick and tired of it!  Taxpayers hate the City Union threats, “YOU MUST PAY US MORE, OR WE WILL SLOW SERVICES, OR YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANY SERVICES!”  Again what many taxpayers are telling TMC, is that they feel “a profound sense of betrayal by our City Government.”  This is a City Government which left you behind, which didn’t protect your tax monies, which didn’t do what they meant and didn’t mean what they said and fiscally didn’t take your best interest at heart.  The following is the cost per resident in order to fund total compensation including pensions in these cities 2014.

RIVERSIDE: $828
COLTON : $631
CORONA :$575                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        FRESNO: $566
SAN BERNARDINO: $460
MORENO VALLEY: $157

We don’t have any services now, that is because they, the City, have cut our services to pay the salaries of our so called “heroes,” Fire and Police,  in lieu of their employer, the taxpayer.  The Council of Riverside has been fiscally irresponsible for many years.  Councilman Mike Soubirous is the exception.  The problem has been that our City Council has been all purchased and paid for by Fire and Police Unions, especially Mayor Rusty Bailey.  Of course, the Riverside Chamber of Commerce and the Rain Cross Group, support Measure-Z, because they couldn’t survive in the real world, without their taxpayer handout, they simply could not make it on their own.  They are a good example of a City subsidized entity. City Pensions have been a priority to City Officials, as opposed to fixing our pot holes, cutting our trees, fixing our curbs and public safety.  Why is that?  Maybe because they are afraid of the dam unions?  If you are week, you will get no where, if you are strong, you will challenge those who you supposedly run to represent, the taxpayers of the City of Riverside.  As a representative you should represent them, the taxpayer, regardless of the consequence.

The City currently pays 35% of public safety employee salary every year to CalPERS; 25% for other employees.  These rates are rising at meteoric levels as CalPERS realizes the full extent of their problem.  Many of these employees have six figure salaries, and most have never paid 1 cent into their own CalPERS retirements, which max out at 90% of top salary when public employees retire at 50 (safety) or 55 (non-safety). There is nothing in the private sector that even remotely compares to these plans.  In fact, for some of the top government earners, it would be illegal under IRS rules in the private sector for companies to fund such a level of retirement pay.

While the private sector has still not seen their total compensation (adjusted for inflation) getting back to 2006 levels, when you include these unfunded benefits; Riverside’s employees have been getting well over 10% raises for the past decade.  Think about that: their compensation is up over 100%, while the rest of us have stagnated.  It is squeezing out public services surely but steadily.  They have literally hijacked the taxpayer to pay them more than should be reasonably compensated in the private sector.  This is criminal!

mixsalaryone     mixsalarytwo     mixsalarythree

Once the average citizen educates themselves about this Ponzi scheme, these guys (fire and police) are going to retire in their early 50s making hundreds of thousands a year, while the rest of us, in the real world, work to our late 60’s with not much more than Social Security (currently $32k/year) and whatever dollar you we’re able to save in our IRA/401k (typical American has enough money for another $20k/year in income in retirement).  Then what do these public workers do next when they retire at 50?  They go get another City job and work a second pension.  Folks like us are not going to work another 15 more years for packages half as good as government workers, it simply makes no economical sense..  The taxpayer is not going to work harder, IN ORDER TO FUND THESE GOLDEN PARACHUTE DEALS FOR CITY EMPLOYEES, while accepting lower quality services from their government.  This isn’t fair, and they, the unions, don’t care.

We need leadership and reform…none on the horizon that I see however.  Instead, our electeds’ have chosen to attempt to pillage the general public with increased taxes.  The earners are already leaving California for places like Nevada and Texas; this will just hasten municipal bankruptcies.  New contract have employees contributing 6% eventually to CalPERS, if raises are at least 2% per year.  By that time the City will be contributing the other 39% that’s being required.  And by tying their salaries to increased revenues under the Partnership Compensation Model, one can look forward to public safety union propaganda in the mail to pass new taxes, new developments, and higher utility bills every year…brilliant.

Remember, what seemingly appears to be the entitlement factor by Public Sector Employees, may be their own undoing.  Please continue to laugh in our faces.  The general public did not vote for your retirement packages.  They were a result of “elected officials” seeking special interest votes.  I find it will end in tears, not only for you, but for the taxpayer!  Union contracts should never be voted without public involvement!  After all we are the rightful employer.

When you look at total compensation, including benefits, pensions, over time and other pay, you will understand that what is paid out to public employee’s, is more than the base pay.  These cost our hidden from the public!  Purposely?  Good question.  Further, the revenue stream is not there, the contracts were made without financially assessing the final impact on the taxpayer.  Therefore, what we have is an unfunded pension liability, right?  The Council Owns this Fiscal Mess, including Davis!  Not listening to the Public.  Our current City Manager John Russo, who is banking on the taxpayer, tells Council Publicly to discount Public Comment!  “Asinine” and “morally corrupt,” as one public commenter indicated..Kevin Dawson to City Manager John Russo.

When you look at 250 employees at the City of Riverside making nearly $200K per year, it’s really 250 employees at the City making nearly $200K per year in total compensation, which includes their base pay, over time, other pay and benefits, which is not clearly addressed by them!

Back on August 16, 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt made this statement on “public sector unions.”  Listen closely Tim Strack, Fire Fighters Union; Listen closely Brian Smith, Riverside Police Officers Union; Listen Closely George Soros, SEIU…

All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations. The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress. Accordingly, administrative officials and employees alike are governed and guided, and in many instances restricted, by laws which establish policies, procedures, or rules in personnel matters.

Particularly, I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place in the functions of any organization of Government employees. Upon employees in the Federal service rests the obligation to serve the whole people, whose interests and welfare require orderliness and continuity in the conduct of Government activities. This obligation is paramount. Since their own services have to do with the functioning of the Government, a strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied. Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable. It is, therefore, with a feeling of gratification that I have noted in the constitution of the National Federation of Federal Employees the provision that “under no circumstances shall this Federation engage in or support strikes against the United States Government.”

Bottom line, this deal, like the previous firefighters and police deals, is a disaster for both the general public and the union members.  It creates the perverse incentive for our police and fire employees, through their unions, to support all new revenues measures (i.e. taxes, higher utility rates, new development)…like Measure Z (local sales tax increase).  It creates a us vs. them game concerning our wallets, which will create “distrust” issues (not the kind of thing public safety should be doing, particularly right now).

What Riverside Police Union President Brian Smith states in this video is inaccurate and defective.  President Sgt. Smith’s leadership within the Police Union is less than can be desired.  His care of his fellow police members monies is abhorrent.  The embezzlement loss of over $346K of police member monies, with over 15 Riverside Police Officers on their Boards, only makes you think how competent they are with accounting knowledge.  According to the Press Enterprise article, RPOA Vice President, Aurelio Melendrez (Son of current Councilman Andy Melendrez), stated, “It’s embarrassing for all of us, its a good lesson to the community that anyone can be victimized.”  Just for the record Aurelio Melendrez is a DETECTIVE for the Riverside Police Department!  He goes on to say, “Police aren’t businessmen.”  We suggest taking a course in accounting 101 at RCC.  It’s there that they are incompetent with member monies, and I can pretty much assume they will be incompetent with Taxpayers Monies.

embezzlement

Press Enterprise article where Measure Z is tied to fire and police salaries.  I find it repugnant once again City personal are out to community meetings pushing for the passing of Measure Z, but stating that they are their only for informational purposes.  Makes you lose respect for fire and police, and city personal and leadership.  The following is a propaganda video produced by the City of Riverside, paid by you, the taxpayer.  Beware, this is another City of Riverside “SCHEME,” known as the “Partnership Compensation Model.”  The City should not be in the business of doing business, but in the business of doing what is right for the taxpayer.

Sgt. Brian Smith of RPD, and also Union President, attempts to tell Riverside Taxpayers why Measure-Z should be passed.  It seems to be that it is all about Smith and his associates, but nothing with regards to the taxpayer!

On September 21,2016 Assistant City Manager Marianna Maryshevitz explains the City Manager John Russo’s new “Partnership Compensation Model” at the Janet Goeske Senior Center.

After Maryshevitz completes her explanation of the City’s new compensation model, Local Taxpayer Advocate & Riversidian Kevin Dawson unleashes against his opinion on the truth of Measure-Z.

Is there any reason that the City of Riverside Taxpayers should question new City Manager John Russo on any of his high falluting ideas? Should we even consider our City Manager John Russo as relevant to the City of Riverside’s welfare?  We need to renegotiate those union deals, or go broke.  We cannot sustain these contracts.  The past city negotiators were simply not good negotiators, and basically gave the farm away, in lieu of their responsibility to the taxpayer.  Shameful.  Many taxpayers feel as I do within our City of Riverside, “a profound sense of betrayal by our City Government.”  This is what TMC is retrieving from our subscribers.  Again they are questioning decisions made by are current and past City leadership. Why is it that our current leadership is unable to decipher the past wrong doing of our Council and justifiably make it right?  So taxpayers have a right to ask about the newly hired City Managers view of the foregoing future of our City.  Is his view of our City the same cookie cuter reproduction of the past?  Is it “Partnership Compensation Model” that Russo placed in Oakland California?  What happened there?

RPOA President, Brian Smith’s former boss was RPD Detective Chris Lanzillo..  What did RPD Sgt. Brian Smith learn from his from his former boss, former RPD Detective Chris Lanzillo, was it how to politically manipulate public politics?  Did Sgt. Smith attempt to do just that against Councilman Mike Soubirous?  Should Sgt. Smith be investigated?  Many in the community are telling TMC yes!

CITY OF FRESNO, CALIFORNIA HAS A PUBLIC EMPLOYEE PENSION SURPLUS..GO FIGURE!

According to a March 10, 2016 article in the Fresno Bee, the City of Fresno has a Pension Surplus!  In my eyes, according to the Fresno Pension Plan, Riverside is simply paying to dam much.  The following is the cost per taxpayer on property taxes per year in 2014, the figures taken from Transparent California.

RIVERSIDE: $828
COLTON : $631
CORONA :$575                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        FRESNO: $566
SAN BERNARDINO: $460
MORENO VALLEY: $157

AND, “the most shocking fact of all is that the Riverside City payroll INCREASED by $10,000,000 between 2014 and 2015.  The precise figure of our deficit. Think about it………” – Ron Todar

Bottom line, City Manager John Russo is not a proponent for the residents and taxpayer of the City of Riverside!  You as a taxpayer have been had.  Have your streets been fixed, trees cut, concerns of in home burglaries, theft from our front yards, drug deals, prostitution rings in our Wood Streets, drug deals in the Wood Streets,  shootings in the Wood Street?  Well Russo’s street has been fixed by the Riverside Gravy Train as expected. Sorry folks if your P.C., but the fact remains, “This is Piss Pour Politics at Hand,” and we should not tolerate it as taxpayers.  Russo is again a parasite who feeds on the “gravy train” of Riverside Taxpayers and every other city taxpayer that he has nomadically strives through.  Our Council is simply to dumb to distinguish the difference.

MORE YES ON MEASURE-Z PROPAGANDA SENT & PAID FOR BY FIRE & POLICE UNIONS

This comment only seems to imply that there is a culture of corruption that continues to be nurtured, not only locally but on a county level?  Is it simply because no one of integrity is minding the store?  Secondly, it indicates “time card fraud” which is a reflection of a mind set which works counter to respecting the taxpayer.  The following was sent anonymously to TMC by a commenter:

I made a mistake getting involved with one of these “firemen” who was my helicopter examiner.  He was abusing state time for sex, and I even tried to stop it, but he insisted, “No, that’s okay, I’m a fire chief and I can get the work done later,” only Janet U. called up on his office phone, WHILE HE WAS ON THE PHONE with me, and she made a complaint about him “not getting his work finished/not finishing a report or something,” so there is DEFINITELY A SERIOUS FAILURE by GOVERNMENT and UNIONS (and especially with the lack of ANY DECENCY OF MORALS BY THESE PERVERT FIREMEN/CHIEFS) to STOP THESE ABUSES by senior personnel in government and STATE JOBS they abuse … it’s too bad the general public didn’t know what is going on throughout this nation, about how these firemen are ACTIVELY STALKING AND ABUSING INNOCENT WOMEN, not just murdering prostitute “fiancees” like Orville Fleming did at Cal Fire! Another fire chief exposed himself to a victim he was stalking and “Targeting” for over 2 years, and she is a very decent female, yet these abusive males are getting away with SERIOUS CRIMES, namely because of UNION CORRUPTION that is protecting the CRIMINAL/CORRUPTION ELEMENT!!!
BTW, the same fire chief committed fraud against Verizon, on top of his other deceit and crimes, including running around conning people that he is “getting a divorce” .. his wife seems to be complicit in the abuses!!!.. SOMEONE NEEDS TO STAND UP TO THIS CORRUPTION, because the STATE GOVERNMENT SURE is NOT DOING ANYTHING TO STOP IT! BILLIONS of dollars are directly contributing to economic impacts of these abuses .. TAX PAYER NEED TO STAND AGAINST THIS STATE CORRUPTION!!!!

VOTE NO ON MEASURE Z!

This story was brought to TMC’s attention because taxpayers asked the question if certain Taxpayer Advocacy Groups are really protecting the taxpayers, or are they actually a shell for City Government.  Richard A. Teaman is a local Riverside Accountant, has a slew of degrees and has been serving Riverside businesses, individuals and other organizations for 32 years.

Teaman is also the Treasurer a Taxpayer Advocacy Group known as, The Inland Empire Taxpayers Association (IETA), of which their mission statement, quote, “The Inland Empire Taxpayer Association is dedicated to researching ballot measures, candidates and public policy issues, educating the public on these matters and taking action to protect the interest in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties,” unquote.

What we found is a disturbing hypocrisy, is Teaman really who he is?  Teaman states he is a proponent and defender of the taxpayer, but TMC has found that he is the Treasure of the “Yes on Measure-Z” Campaign, and his associate partner, Javier Carrillo is the Vice Treasurer.

What also was seemingly to be incriminating, was the fact that Teaman’s Accounting Firm, a.k.a., “Teaman, Ramirez and Smith Inc.” contributed $750.00 to the “Yes on Measure-Z” Campaign.  So what gives?  We simply don’t know, but Teaman’s “Inland Empire Taxpayer Association,” is the same address as his accounting firm, 4201 Brockton Avenue, Suite 100, Riverside, CA, 92501.

This was also brought to TMC’s attention, when the City of Riverside commissioned the study to see if Riverside residents and taxpayers would be likely to consider an increase in sales tax.  One of the question as seen in this clip, states that if these organizations or individual provided information on Measure-Z, would you find them very believable, somewhat believable, not to believable or no at all believable.  One of the organizations on the list was what appeared to be a taxpayer advocacy group called, “Riverside County Taxpayers Association.”

What was really compelling is that the “Riverside County Taxpayers Association” is “inactive” according to the State of California Secretary of State.  Why would this firm use an ‘inactive’ question in questionnaire which the City is attempting to fall in their favor on this measure.  Hyjinks? Good question, we are all attempting to find answers.

In question #11, the question was based on deception, to focus on the hearts of the taxpayers by asking them “Would you Vote on this Measure, if Cuts would be made to Police, Fire etc..?”  Disgusting!  Guess who placed the bill on this study that would be focused against you?  You guessed it, you did, the taxpayer..

VOTE  NO  ON  MEASURE-Z!
