The Three-Zero Club: Big Momma Cradling Her Two Boys….

BREAKING UPDATE: 01.12.2018: PRESS ENTERPRISE: COUNCILWOMAN VICTORIA BACA FACES SECOND RECALL ATTEMPT: RECALL PAPERS SERVED 01.09.2018: The uncorroborated underground dark rumor is that Councilman David Marquez, Councilman Jeffrey Giba, former Councilwoman Delores LaDonna Jempson and former Councilman George E. Price are allegedly some of the few behind the recall effort.

I guess the story starts here at conception, but was the notion of the children a last minute decision, or a quick romp of nefarious ideas in the back of a 57 Chevy?  Collusion, schemes and dirty deals has plagued the City of Moreno Valley for decades as residents have seen.  The above three seemingly were meant to be, but are the obvious example of lobbying, scandals and corruption associated with political campaign contributions.

That said, this story is not only about the three bumbling idiots in charge,  but the recent firing of Ciy Manager Michelle Dawson and the hiring of Tom DeSantis as new City Manager.  TMC said it first when Vivian Moreno suggested many times that City Manager Michelle Dawson should have been fired years ago for her apparent lack of direction to Council, as indicated by her long track record of nothing.

This is our opinion on the situation:

1.)  Either Michele Dawson had enough and could no longer keep up with the job and wanted out. We also believe that she was in on the deal/bribe to have herself fired.

2.)  OR….. Assistant City Manager Tom Desantis stabbed her in the back and stole her job. He has been shopping around for a City Managers job for years now. No one would hire him!

3.) OR……The fix was in by the collusion of all; Baca, Gutierrez, Cabrera, DeSantis and Dawson.  DeSantis will do what it takes and it may suit Baca’s style, with her two whipping boys in her hip pocket.  Dawson is an anomaly, caught up in a job whereby her qualifications were much to be desired.  The fact remains that DeSantis has been running the show behind the scenes.  DeSantis many times took the podium over Dawson at Council, driving the question as to “Who is really running the store?”  Was it time for Dawson to move on?  With her contract up next year in 2018, why didn’t they allow that contract to expire, let her go before this years ending and pay the rest of the contract?  Instead they renewed her contract in September 2017 till 2020.  So Dawson is terminated, prior to having her contract renewed and prior to receiving favorable work related reviews.  Was this calculated?  Was this in the fix as a gift to keep the silence, and of course, with taxpayer monies?  Now the two threesome, Baca, Gutierrez, Cabrera and DeSantis, Benzeevi, Villaraigosa?  Of course, in reality sense, you all no this wouldn’t happen, but was it their intention? Was it Baca’s intention?

But where does this all stem from?  Back in March 2008, Baca tells The Press-Enterprises it isn’t fair that Moreno Valley city officials are considering accommodating developers by allowing warehouses in an area where schools are planned. The projects include Highland Fairview’s Skecher’s warehouse. “Who would want schools around warehouses that pollute the area with exhaust, traffic and who knows what else?”  Between the years of 2008 and 2009 Baca interestingly enough reports income earned by her and her husband from work as consultants for Highland Fairview, a company owned by developer Ido Benzeevi.  Remarkably, her tune changes January 2009: Baca voices support for the Skechers project before the city Planning Commission, saying it would bring needed jobs: “The children of Moreno Valley deserve to have companies like Skechers come to Moreno Valley.”  June and July 2010: Baca attends closed-door school meetings to discuss Highland Fairview’s request for $500,000 credit toward developer fees.  Yep, for Baca, it’s always about the children.  August, September and October 2010 Baca’s unsuccessful school board re-election campaign receives $14,690.71 in donations, goods and services from the Moreno Valley Taxpayers Association, whose principal backer is Highland Fairview.  November 2012: Baca is elected to the Moreno Valley City Council.  She receives a $2,000 campaign donation from Highland Fairview.  She was then recalled in 2014, and then came back in November 2016 with her boy Gutierrez with huge monies behind them, mainly from one developer.  Incidentally, Baca received $150,000.00 from Highland Fairview to fight the recall effort.  Cabrera, a 22 year old from Texas, suddenly appeared into the picture June 2017, with muncho dinero from that same developer Ido Benzeevi.  He also seems to enjoy doing things without his shirt off; beside getting into a little trouble with perjury, the District Attorney’s Office and California Form 700.

Baca a prior campaign manager and supporter of former Mayor Jesse Molina later to do an about-turn.  The question then became as to why Council Woman Baca turned the other cheek on former Mayor Jesse Molina when he was making strides on challenging issues that effected the community and concerns which infected Moreno Valley’s City Hall government?  Was it jealously?  Was it simply because he was resolving issues in the community that should have resolved years ago?  Or was it that he allowed Vivian Moreno to come into the picture?   Was Tom and Victoria behind this union debacle attempting to shake down Mayor Jesse Molina to dump administrative volunteer Vivian Moreno?  We did our own story on this issue and found some interesting facts in the relationship of this Union with the City Manager Office.  The letter sent to then Mayor Jesse Molina wasn’t even signed!  No one in the City Managers office had the guts to, or did they know anything about it.  This was eye catching and revealing in this October 11, 2017 Thirty Miles Posting.

The citizens of Moreno Valley always seem to get the raw end of the deal, paying over inflated salaries to under qualified City Managers. But the City Manager job  wasn’t a bad gig for ‘dog catcher,’ Dawson.

The apparent corruption in MoVal appears to be getting more difficult to cover up.  The city has been taken over by special influential interests that are undermining the true political process of the people, (IDDO).  We see this with Councilwoman Victoria Baca’s inherent position in dismantling the ‘Sunshine Act.‘  You can’t control your agenda if you have to be transparent.  There is a reason why Baca would like to do away with allowing the people of Moreno Valley to see council agendas and policies 12 days in advance, as to oppose to 72 hours.  It will now take a council majority vote, which would be the Three Amigos, in order for items to placed on the agenda.  The pattern arises as to why anyone who so called represents people would want to be less transparent, What our they hiding?  What will they receive in return?  Bottom line how can anything get done with transparency!

Former Councilman Jesse Molina, who had called for the change to the Sunshine Act, said he’s disappointed to hear that it could end.  “They will probably reverse everything that was accomplished,” he said.

It didn’t stop there, one rule required council members to report contributions of more than $500 that they’ve received within the past 48 months from a donor if that entity or individual has business before the council.  On October 17, 2017, Baca, Gutierrez  and Cabrera repealed the conflict of interest rules.  If you see how much the three received from Developer Ido Bezeevi you will know why…just follow the money.  All three said the rules were unnecessary because candidates must already report donations in public campaign contribution reports that are filed with the city clerk’s office…go figure.

What does transparency do for the community?  It insures accountability and truth.  Without, you have the conspiracy theories began, the gray areas between truth and fiction.  Is Victoria Baca now the Inland Empire Campaign Manager for Antonio Villaraigosa’s Governership as some eluded to?  Is Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez and Councilman Ulises Cabrera related as Cousins as some have indicated?

But the drama didn’t stop there, Baca filed a police complaint against her brother, Christopher Baca, alleging that he and former Mayor & Councilman Jesse Molina – a candidate for mayor in the Nov. 8 election – tried to break into her house September 12, 2016.  This gets interesting…. is she a loose cannon?  Or Just being Big Mama trying to teach her boys the ways of her corrupt world.  In reality she is making them a laughingstock in the region and no one takes them seriously.

As far as TMC understands the dire situation that is taking Moreno Valley down boils down to this.  Michelle, Tom, Baca and her boys are the fools that will own the further destruction of Moreno Valley.  These people are incapable or unqualified to run the City, with the economic potential of this city decimated.  Desantas deserves Baca and Baca Deserves Desantas.  Tom, you go from BRUNI to BACA REALLY ! Its all down hill from here.

As seen on TMC, newly christened City Manager of Moreno Valley, Tom DeSantis has a questionable past with the City of Riverside and how he handled city business, but it didn’t start there it goes back to the City of San Bernardino.  TMC has the following stories:

1.) JUNE 28, 2011: MORENO VALLEY: EX ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER TOM DESANTIS HIRED BY MORENO VALLEY CITY MANAGER HENRY GARCIA.

2.) MARCH 8, 2016: CITY OF RIVERSIDE: WHO’S THE GIRL WITH THE CURLY HAIR?

3.) JUNE 14, 2011: CITY OF RIVERSIDE: CITY MANAGER BRAD HUDSON RESIGNS! IN 2016 COUNCILMAN PAUL DAVIS STATES HE WAS ‘GET RID OF.’ TMC HAD IT RIGHT ‘HE WAS FIRED!’

I guess the real issue was the fix already in by the MoVal Three, or was the fix on a greater scale that included all?  Even MVGordie felt there was something fishy about who was placed to run for City Council.  Stating in a post, “It is also alleged that the subject Ulises Cabrera started said businesses in furtherance of his planned campaign run for the elected position for the now vacant seat in Councilman District 4 and that said businesses were created to bolster the subjects campaign, along with the false history narratives of residency within Moreno Valley created by the subject with the assistance of Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez and Moreno Valley Council Member (Mayor Pro-Tem) Victoria Baca.”

August 16, 2017 Gubernatorial candidate Antonio Villaraigosa will speak alongside Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Alberto Gutierrez at the State of the City address. Villaraigosa was someone who took the California Bar four times and failed all four times; he preached to the Los Angeles Mexican Community that “we clean your toilets!,” but turned the City of Los Angeles into just that, “A Toilet.”  Tickets for the luncheon are $40 per person, it appears to leave the rift raft out, which would be the taxpayers of the City of Moreno Valley.  We questioned the fact that an event held for the public, become a political and illegal side show.  Leaving the community out because no one would pay the $40 dollars.  We had a similar situation on our neck of the woods, and you bet, we put a stop to that pompous elite and self entitled.

Same day on August 16, 2017, Villaraigosa held a campaign fundraiser — $1,000 for guests and $10,000 for hosts — at ProAbition Kitchen & Whiskey Lounge in downtown Riverside.  Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez and Moreno Valley Councilman Ulises Cabrera attended.  Wonder who helped pay for their tickets?

Iddo Benzeevi’s company, Highland Fairview, gave $58,400 – the maximum allowed by law in the 2018 election cycle – to Villaraigosa’s gubernatorial campaign on Dec. 1, 2017 state campaign finance records show.  The Moreno Valley City Council approved the World Logistics Center in 2015. It faces legal challenges from environmentalists, who fear the project will worsen already-poor air quality. Critics also argue the project will clog local roads with truck traffic.  Benzeevi and city officials defend the project’s environmental analysis and say the World Logistics Center will generate $2.5 billion annually in economic activity and support 20,000 jobs.  Of course, Baca and her boys were all in for the long hall.  Air quality and the children didn’t seem to come out as an issue.  Villaraigosa, a former Los Angeles mayor and Assembly speaker, praised the project at Moreno Valley’s State of the City Address in August.   Well of course he did…  Villaraigosa, once a property owner in MoVal stated, “I know how important it is to moving goods in this region,” he said at the time.

But is there a possible motive operandi behind diligently courting Villar, especially if he does become Governor of California?  The reason is quite elementary, Brown’s office announced the veto of AB 890 on Monday, Oct. 16.  The bill by Assemblyman Jose Medina, D-Riverside, would have closed a loophole in the California Environmental Quality Act, also known as CEQA, that allows projects approved by voters to bypass the act’s review process.  Having, Villar/Villaraigosa in their ‘hip pocket’ would apparently ensure an unequivocal veto.  Incidentally, Baca and Gutierrez even went to Sacramento to lobby against AB890.  With AB890 vetoed, The Three Amigos could continue there work of ensuring the rest to occur.

Moreno Valley politics is a disaster. The three clowns running the City… Baca, Gutierrez and Cabrera are a visual reflection of what now represents the City of Moreno Valley. The Inland Empire is watching these fools up the hill from Riverside in what is apparently being coined the Mo Val Ghetto Banana Republic. The one thing I can say is the level of corruption in the City of Riverside is much more sophisticated. But really the citizens of Mo Val you deserve better, much better.

But here is the Down and Dirty, back in September 2017 Council extends City Manager Michelle Dawson’s contract till May 2020 — approved Tuesday night, Sept. 5, by the City Council — City Manager Michelle Dawson will stay on until May 2020. Her employment agreement had been set to expire in 2018.  December 2017, City Council fires City Manager Michelle Dawson, and replaces her with Assistant City Manager Tom DeSantis.  It sounds as if Mo Val Three colluded early behind closed doors to pad her salary and pension with the agreement that she would go quietly.  I’m sure Bumbling Council felt a good quiet time would December 19, 2018 during the holidays, when they thought no one would be watching.

I guess the real issue was the fix already in by the MoVal Three, or was the fix on a greater scale that included all?  Even MVGordie felt there was something fishy about the cascade of events which led to the these three attaining their elected position, hence power.  Now we have the MoVal Three Vote, Three-Zero all the way!  MVGordie called it the “Revitalization of the Moreno Valley 3-0 Club.”  Is it me or I’m just seeing the invention of the perfect storm, perfect political storm that is: A possible Governor Antonio Villar, Councilwoman Victoria Baca, Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez, Developer Iso Benzeevi and now City Manager Tom DeSantis?  There are individuals who simply have no true leadership skills and must rig the system in order that it works in their favor.

Street Justice continues with the renaming of ‘Theodore Street’ to ‘World Logistics Parkway’ by The Three Amigos.  Quid Pro Quo continues, again is MoVal losing a bit a history to history yet written?  Is “The World Logistics Center” the figment of ones imagination, an idea that will never transpire.  Is what will transpire the rezoning of land, only to be resold at a higher profit by Highland Fairvew?  Will The Three Amigos unsuspectingly be part of that plan?

MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA CRASH PAD AND INVESTMENT PROPERTY IN MORENO VALLEY 2014, HIS INEPTNESS IN AS L.A. MAYOR CARRIED OVER TO HIS INEPTNESS IN PROPERTY MANAGEMENT.

According to an article in Buzzfeed News, July 15, 2014, records show that the house — which recently featured boarded-up windows, peeling blue and white paint, and cinderblocks in the weed-choked front yard — racked up a series of code violations, including for unmaintained landscaping and discarded junk in the yard.  Former Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa owned the house from 1990 until June of 2014, county records show.  “He’s a slumlord, that’s what he is,” complained Steven Patzer, who lives next door to the small house on Eucalyptus Avenue in the city of Moreno Valley.  What TMC has also learned is that the property may not have all been pretty, but the toilet was immaculate.  Any taxpayer would have been proud to give their sentiments to Villaraigosa and his gang on that prized throne…

IS THERE ANOTHER SIDE TO HIGLAND FAIRVIEW’S IDO BENZEEVI AND HIS PLAN FOR MORENO VALLEY.  HIS SUCCESSES AND FAILURES;  OR SIMPLY  HIS ART AT SUBLIMINAL SEDUCTION?  OR OUR WE DEALING WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY CONFIDENCE MAN?

Building warehousing in Moreno Valley even on the scale of the World Logistics Center isn’t the issue at heart. It’s that a company like Highland Fairview and its owner are not credible at all in the area of development or construction. It’s in effect a fly-by-night group which purchases land cheaply and rezones it in the hope of selling or leasing to other parties in the long term. Neither really has much of any track record of building at all despite being active under one corporate name for over three decades or another.

Is it true that Iddo and his medical doctor brother Benny recently formed a company who tried to redevelop and manage Tulare’s Regional Medical Center and also the Southern Inyo hospital?  Both are now bankrupt, contracts ended, one closed, is it true that the Healthcare Conglomerate Associates or HCCA as depicted in this video is under criminal investigation by the Tulare County District Attorney’s office at present for issues such as financial malfeasance and grand theft of equipment?  Just asking!

TMC thought we had it bad in the City of Riverside, but the City of Moreno Valley beat us by a long shot.

IS STAFF REALLY ATTEMPTING TO DIVERT ATTENTION?

Let me tell you what were going to do for the citizens of Moreno Valley to get you in these U S E D cars today!  We don’t need no stinking bidding process on this one.  By the direction of the Council, we will scam the taxpayer into buying used instead of new cars.  We will spend more for less because that’s how we roll here in Moreno Valley, Nobody will notice.  “Want Chrome Rims, No Problem…….. I like you, tell you what I’m gonna Do!”

Fast Double talking Assistant City Manager De Santis and no talk City Manager Michelle Dawson try to convince the public and the Council that buying 6 used cars/trucks for $180,000.00 is a great deal for the taxpayers of Moreno Valley.  They openly insult the intelligence of the public by trying to convince them that there will be an overall savings of 30% and the sales tax return to the city would be $230.00 per unit, they use terms like low mileage, slightly used, preowned units. This scenario is a simple example as to how incompetent and sleazy the executive management is.

About 4 weeks ago Mayor Jesse Molina was contacted by a city employee, this employee was upset about the possible blantent over billing by a local auto dealer for 6 vehicles to be purchased by the City of Moreno Valley.  The Mayor got a hold of the list and started checking for himself.  It didn’t take long for him to find out that they could by N E W vehicles for the same price if not less than used.  The Mayors office reached out to the local auto dealer to get their take on the autos. The dealer assured the Mayor this was a great deal!

Finally this issue came to council and Tom De Santis was in Classic form “SLEEZY, SLICK & SLOPPY” and City Manager Michelle Dawson, who should be running the show, says absolutely nothing and lets Tom speak for her.  The first thing the Mayor asked, “Did this go out to bid?  Tommy D. said NO!  Where are the comparisons or spread sheets…there are none!  Staff responded,” but we will have them for you next time!  Next time we will have the purchasing manager do comparisons.”  The double talking quick thinking assistant city manager/ wanna be City Manager, was at his best… Saying things as, “We pursued this program at the direction of the council, to provide value to the taxpayer.”  We hear the Mayors concerns loud and clear.  We can possibly look at other options that are a lot cheaper.  The Staffs mission here is to save money to provide value.

Council member Jempson had a really good question: She asked if they could buy fleet with the County to get a better price. Tommy D. stated yes, that they can piggyback on the County that is the way they typically do things.  Comp-bids for new vehicles but………. It is was Giba that said “ We are tired of hearing that’s the way we’ve always done it, Tom, so we are doing it differently.  This is our maiden voyage.”

So basically after all was said and done Tom De Santis stated that they could piggy back off the county for new cars at a better value but they were going to go with the local dealer for used cars at a higher cost.  Dose this make sense to anybody?  It didn’t pass the smell test and the council voted NO.  My favorite George price weighs in reprimanding the public and council saying “that everyone just insulted the largest taxpaying company in the City of Moreno Valley, this is unethical”.  What I find unethical is a City Council member not taking his fiduciary responsibility seriously! You were voted by the people to protect the taxpayer not a local auto dealership!

Some are telling me that even AT&T is just as bad as dealing with a car dealership!

Untitled-5

For the record, Vivian Moreno did all her work without access to the Moreno Valley computer system, she was forbidden to use one.  Vivian didn’t care, she knew what was going on.  Moreno had seen all these games before.  With this in mind, how senseless was it of City Manager Michelle Dawson; instead of supporting the Mayor’s direction to bring in help he so desperately needed, she created chaos and instability in her organization.  Then you need to ask yourself why did the Mayor need help?  Because the City Manager didn’t do her job!  Maybe Michelle Dawson didn’t get the memo from Tom De Santis : DO NOT try to take on Vivian Moreno, you will lose!

Since August 2015 the Press Enterprise has written 7 stories, and 1 editorial in the time that Vivian was Assistant to the Mayor.  The PE articles written reflect the positive changes that have occurred in the Mayor’s office.

What did Michelle Dawson do in the time Vivian Moreno was cleaning up the city, that she (Dawson) should have been protecting?  Dawson was creating chaos, deflection and distraction.  What a waste of time and taxpayer money.  Maybe she (Dawson) was more focused on the finance director?  Just asking…

Since the Mayor (Molina) has been in office it has been a struggle for him and many of his colleagues to get information such as public documents needed to do their job.  I think what the Council, Mayor and Public need to ask themselves…….. “Does Michelle Dawson have the leadership skills necessary to take the City of Moreno Valley to the 21st Century?”

This article should be titled: Michelle Dawson vs. Vivian Moreno.  In order to understand the junction of the dysfunction or malfunction you need to understand the players:
City Manager: Michelle Dawson
Assistant City Manager: Tom De Santis
Sustainability & Intergovernmental Programs Manager: or AKA bull shit position for a friend: Julie Reyes

Management Analyst: AKA MVMA President: Felicia London

Julie Reyes was the Number “3” in the leadership position in Moreno Valley.  I did say “WAS”…..As of Friday, October 30, 2015 she was nowhere to be found.  Did she resign?  What happened?  No one seems to know at this junction.  In order to weed out the dysfunction, malfunction, and or corruption, all you needed to do was to shine the light on it, and expose it for what it was!  Julie is GONE!

As Vivian Moreno became more comfortable in her position as the assistant to the Mayor, she was able to have a front row seat at what really goes on in City Hall. The petty distractions created by Vivian Moreno’s mere presence were on going and brought on by management.  Michelle Dawson and others thought they could take Vivian on in the work place, but it was Vivian that would have none of it.  Vivian was there to help out her friend, by redirecting and refocusing the Mayor’s office.

Here is a list of accomplishments that Mayor Jesse Molina and his assistant Vivian Moreno completed in 2 months and 3 weeks. The positive changes in his office and the city were a direct result because the Mayor now had the help he desperately needed.

1. The Mayor procured, achieved and accomplished through the World Logistics Hearings successfully.
2. The Mayor was prepared and delivered a successful State of the City Address written by Vivian Moreno.
3. The Mayor is more organized and now runs, successful, peaceful, and public centered, Council meetings.
4. The Mayor successfully rescued the city council meeting involving the Crossing Guard issue that had turned into a fiasco. When it seemed like all hell was going to break loose. It was Vivian Moreno that contacted Menifee Mayor Scott Mann to get an emergency meeting between the Mayor and Superintendent Dr. Judy White so they could get a dialog started and solve this problem together..
5. It was the direction of the Mayor to bring transparency and ethics to the city of Moreno Valley and with the help of Vivian who researched the information for the Sunshine Ordinance and compiled the Ethics information. They were able to start the process of an open the government for the people of Moreno Valley.
6. The Mayor is dedicated in bringing unity back to the council so they can all work to create a stronger city for the citizens of Moreno Valley.
7. Above all the chaos that has plagued the Council Chambers at City hall for years is now positive and up lifting.

The positive successful changes in the Mayor’s office have been a direct result of his decision to bring Vivian Moreno in as his assistant.  There is only one more pressing issue the Mayor needs to take on to put the city of Moreno Valley in the good hand to direct it into the 21st century.  The Mayor now has the support of many civic and regional leaders throughout Riverside County, the staff, and his peers.  We all believe Mayor Jesse Molina will be in a great position to be the first elected Mayor of the City.

The leadership, direction, and transparency, is finally on its way to the city of Moreno Valley thanks to the Mayor, Jesse Molina and his assistant and good friend Vivian Moreno….. The staff of the city has now reached out to the Mayor and thirtymilesofcorruption.com by emailing inconsistencies within city government.

NOW AN UPDATE ON THE CEA LETTER SENT TO MO VAL MAYOR AND COUNCIL TO REMOVE MORENO:

emailmvma

CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE TO VIEW MVMA MEMBER EMAIL

Just received, it appears that the Moreno Valley Management Association (MVMA) under the auspices of their representative Union, the City Employees Association (CEA), actually never notified their members that a letter would be sent to the Mayor and Council regarding the Molina’s Volunteer Legislative Aide, Vivian Moreno.  This means, according to the above email all 72 members were never briefed or notified of the intent to send a letter to Moreno Valley City Council and the Mayor.  According to the MVMA member, the MVMA Board also never included their 72 members in vote with reference to the removal of Moreno.  Therefore, in consort with this members account, it leads to the inference that the MVMA’s hierarchy may be in disaray, therefore leads to the person in charge, MVMA President Felicia London. Who has unfortunately declined to comment on the letter when contacted by the PE.  Did London contact the CEA for  Julie Reyes, to initiate the letter for the removal of Moreno?  That is the question, because as you see below she is up for promotion.  We made mention if the City Manager, Assistant City Manager and Administrative Director could have been involved?  We asked the question, “Where was Administrative Director Chris Paxton in all this?” If there was a personal problem, did London contact Paxton first, as is policy in most cities, before going to the Union?

The original letter dated September 22, 2105 was sent to Council and Mayor, with CC: Michelle Dawson, Tom De Santis, Chris Paxton and MVMA Board by CEA Labor Representative Nikita “Nik” Soukonnikov, according to the below email.  On the CEA site, Soukonnikov states that he an attorney in the State of Oregon, I would assume that is as far as it goes, he’s not an attorney in the State of California, actually sent the email with the attached letter to the Mayor and Council of Moreno Valley.  Why did “Nik” send the letter knowingly unsigned?  In the following article, it appears that CEA Labor Representative “Nik” Soukonnikov represented the West Hollywood’s City Council Deputies. Get this folks, the West Hollywood City Council Deputies has a Union Membership of “Five!” Yes that is right, “Five!

This completely contradicts the statements made by CEA Director Robin Nahin from our first posting.  From a phone conversation by TMC attorney, Nahin indicated that the letter should have been signed by a MVMA Board Member.  Though the signature line on the letter would otherwise indicate that it was to be signed by a CEA representative!

What is now quite remarkable is that MVMA Board President Felicia London is up for promotion, 30 days later according to the following documents drawn up and prepared by Chris Paxton, Administrative Director (AKA Human Resources).  This was also approved or signed off to go forward for approval by the Budget Officer, City Manager Michelle Dawson and City Attorney.  Her new position will be Senior Accountant, from Management Analyst.

The bottom line, it leads us to believe that the one person involved would be MVMA President Felicia London.  Remarkably, this is the one who person who was elected by MVMA to represent the 72 mid level managers, but did not give her members notification or allowed them to vote on Moreno issue.  Why?

UPDATE: 11.10.2015: CITY OF BEAUMONT: IT ALL ABOUT THE CITY MANAGER!

Time and time again when there is problems with city finances, it is always about the City Manager who controls the purse.  In the Beaumont case, as in every city, we see how this has been problematic. Problematic in the sense that there was a failure to communicate, or a failure to purposely not communicate.  Therefore, the answer is for the Council to make the “mind right” for the benefit of the taxpayers, the Council and Mayor.

So if we have a “failure to communicate,” with the aspect that “some men/women just can’t be reached,” who do we have as an entity that is a cheerleader for the community/taxpayer?  Therefore, do these individuals need to be dealt with “in a proper manner”?

What we find is that the problem in most Cities, is the City Manager, and how they utilize their “power” over their staff.  Do they actually utilize their “power” politically to help the “elected?”

And for the record, “I don’t like it,” but the focus should be on the “taxpayer,” and the benefit to “them.”   Possibly, Councilman Jeff Gibba and George Price may not like the “truth,” but they took an “oath” to uphold and protect the taxpayer!  We hope they do….
