Again Folks, the City of Riverside is actually polling the public to craft its propaganda campaign for the upcoming revenue measure, known as Measure C for this November  2021.  This is how the City plays the game from there exclusive new best seller, “How to Fleece a Taxpayer” which coincides with their previous release, “If You Want It, Just Take It!” :

1) The City gets caught (last Fall) illegally taxing its ratepayers through what’s called the General Fund Transfer (11.5% of your electric utility bill is actually a tax you never approved in violation of Prop 26, 2010).    See: Parada vs. City of Riverside.

See: Moreno vs. City of Riverside.  The Original Water Law Suit

2) The City uses your money to secretly (no public vote) hire a polling company and a PR firm to figure out what services it constituents are most afraid of losing.

3) The City then places a ballot measure for the November 2021 election using persuasive (violative of State election code) vs. factual information: “To maintain 911 response, fire, paramedic, police, street repairs, parks, senior, other general services, shall the City Charter be amended to continue collecting in electric rates and maintain the voter-approved fund transfer existing since 1968, limited to 11.5% of gross revenue, providing approximately $40,000,000 annually to City of Riverside’s General Fund that does not increase tax or utility rates, until ended by voters, requiring audits/ all funds benefiting Riverside residents, be adopted?”  The general idea is to scare the public as to where the City might cut funding (i.e. the things the public cares the most about).

4) Then the Public Union money comes pouring in to send propaganda materials out the month before the election, USING THE PR AND POLLING DATA/INSIGHTS YOU PAID FOR, to tell you the world will end if you don’t vote for the Measure C, but not mentioning City employees will be the biggest beneficiaries of the ballot measure.

The same strategy was used successfully for Measure A (Water Fund Transfer), Measure Z (sales tax increase), and the latest utility rate hike (probably others I’m forgetting at the moment).  For example Measure Z resulted in many City employees getting nearly a 25% raise over the course of two years…money you were told would go towards enhancing your quality of life. That raise also made our unfunded pension liabilities skyrocket…which then precipitated the City selling pension bonds last Summer…which guaranteed much of our public employee pensions (80-90% of highest salary for life with retirement in their 50s often, to which I ask, ‘Where’s the fairness towards the private sector asked to pay these packages?” The dishonesty of how our local government agencies continue to act should by this point make you understand that you should vote ‘no’ on all future “revenue measures,” also known as “hidden tax revenue schemes.”

A WORD FROM CITY OF RIVERSIDE GOVERNMENT WATCHDOG, JASON HUNTER:  SORRY FOLKS THE SOUND IS BAD, INCREASE THE VOLUME.

SHOULD LIFE JACKETS BE MANDATORY?  A QUESTION TO PONDER SINCE NOT HAVING THEM CAN CREATE A DANGER TO THOSE AROUND YOU, INCLUDING YOURSELF!

BOTTOM LINE GOVERNMENT SHOULD LIVE WITHIN THEIR MEANS, AFTER ALL, WE THE TAXPAYER MUST….

Was it a “64-year-old female of Riverside,”, “on Victoria Avenue,” with a, “2014 maroon Dodge minivan”?

DOES ANYONE HAVE A CLUE?

We here at TMC consider ourselves at least C- level Clue players, piecing together various bits and pieces of information – an anonymous email here, a public record request there, an off-the-record phone call hither, a half-truthed City press release yonder – to try to provide our approximately 17.5 readers some insight into how local government works, or more precisely, doesn’t work for the betterment of the general public here in Riverside County.  And along those lines, while we may have once (or twice) called him a Panderer-At-Large for his revolving door roles in the community, we were still sad to hear of the passing this past May of long-time Riverside Hundred go-to-guy Bob Stockton while out jogging along Victoria Avenue with his wife.  Stockton purportedly dashed out into the bike lane to avoid pedestrians on the walking path and was hit from behind by a passing vehicle.  An outdoor enthusiast, Stockton died doing what he loved with whom he loved: still, a bitter pill to swallow.  Our deepest condolences to Kelli, our old Jazzercize friend from many ounces pounds and years ago.

Before the obligatory Press Enterprise nothing-burger of a story’s ink was even dry, we had been informed who was responsible for Stockton’s untimely demise, despite the PE nor the City not telling us.  That’s just how the informal network of information flows here in the ole’ River City – always has, at least for those of us playing.  Her name?  Ann Marie Melendrez – the wife of sitting Ward 2 City Councilman and Mayor wannabe Andy Melendrez.

In Case You Thought We Were Making Things Up: TMC Brings the Goods

And while the sheer indescribable-ness of the odds of two of Riverside’s power families’ fates careening together in such terrible circumstances on that fateful day, as well as the future political implications, may seem like a newsworthy story in-and-of-itself, we were struck by something else in the Riverside Police Department’s (RPD) press release from that morning: a shiny object that might have only stood out to perpetually-jaded beings like us at the time, that we thought combined with our unique institutional knowledge of the City and some public records, might shed some new light on how we the taxpayers are getting set up to take it on the chin again.  See if you can spot it!  We’ll even give you a not-so-subtle hint.

That’s an awfully wide bike lane for Stockton to not be running within

FATAL INJURY TRAFFIC COLLISION Riverside, CA – On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, at approximately 10:54 a.m., the City of Riverside’s Public Safety Communications Center received calls of a traffic collision involving a vehicle and pedestrian on Victoria Avenue near Horace Street. Paramedics with the Riverside Fire Department and Riverside Police Officers responded and located the parties involved on westbound Victoria Avenue, between Lincoln Avenue and Horace Street. Lifesaving measures were performed but the pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Preliminary investigation shows an adult male was jogging on westbound Victoria Avenue when he was struck by a 2014 maroon Dodge minivan also traveling west on Victoria Avenue, being driven by a 64-year-old female of Riverside. The driver stayed at the scene and has been cooperating with investigators. At this time, it does not appear alcohol or drugs are a factor in this collision.

The Riverside Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team (M.A.I.T.) responded and is currently investigating. They are being assisted by the Riverside County Sheriff – Coroner’s Office. The decedent has been identified as Robert Stockton, a 64-year-old resident of Riverside.

This investigation is still ongoing and there are no further details to release at this time. Anyone with additional information is urged to contact Riverside Police Traffic Detective F. Soria at (951) 826-8720.

 

THE REAL THIN BLUE LINE/IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR

Hmmmmm.  RPD, which reports to new Chief Larry Gonzalez, who reports to City Manager Al Zelinka, who reports the City Council, on which happens to sit Ward 2 City Councilmember Andy Melendrez, is investigating one of its boss’ wife.  One of the seven individuals in this podunk town of 330,000+, who just happens to control RPD’s budget and will be negotiating on behalf of the public on all police union MOUs in the upcoming year.

City of Riverside new motto: There’s no conflict of interest so large we can’t completely ignore it!

The same guy handsomely supported by the local police his last campaign for City Council.

RPD can pick it’s boss, pick it’s nose, and maybe even it’s boss’ nose for $5000.

The same guy whose two brother-in-laws worked for RPD…for 30 years.

“I got eight months left, I don’t want any trouble”

SIDENOTE: Yes, that Frank Orta.  The one who was on-scene and wrote the police report on ex-Chief Russ Leach’s Super Bowl romp through Riverside on his rims back in 2010: the report that mentioned Leach’s impairment (just 11 drinks and 5 prescription drugs) and his assertions that all he had was a flat tire (despite having totaled his vehicle), but recommended no criminal action.  The traffic stop that under normal protocol, according to the City Manager at the time, police would have conducted a field sobriety test, taken blood, breath or urine samples and made an arrest?  C’mon, you remember our sex, drugs, and rock’n’roll ex-Chief Russ Leach?  Still don’t have your attention?  Did we mention STRIPPPERS?!

Now … for the good stuff.  If not for an anonymous call to former Mayor Ron Loveridge’s office, the whole shebang would’ve been most likely covered up.  Ex-City Manager, general scalawag, and self-preservationist Brad Hudson hired the California Highway Patrol within days to head up the investigation into Leach because of the obvious conflict-of-interest of RPD looking into their boss’ misadventures that evening.  Now Orta’s momma didn’t raise no family of dummies (and neither did her offspring).    Coincidentally, Frank took an early retirement just ahead of California Highway Patrol’s final report being released, and avoided any discipline.  Leach resigned almost immediately after the incident, took a medical retirement, and eventually pled to misdemeanor DUI.  Hudson proclaimed internal policies would be changed so that this kind of scandal would never rock the City again.  We suggest you read this paragraph twice, because [spoiler alert] we’ll be coming back to it throughout this story.

  

Leach’s police vehicle…”just a scratch occifer!”

Oh, and let’s not forget Councilman Melendrez’s son Aurelio, who had an illustrious career with RPD: he was the Vice President of the Riverside Police Officers Association, and participant in the Riverside’s Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre.  Aurelio, we are told, left the department under suspicious circumstances not unlike “Uncle” Frank…but we are saving that story for another day (by all means, feel free to contribute by emailing us or commenting below).

God must be paying well these days (inside joke of the day)

 

ANOTHER SUPER BOWL SHUFFLE

Three years after Leach’s sexcapades, in 2013 then-Lieutenant Larry Gonzalez, in apparent homage to the ex-Chief, had his own Super Bowl stroll through Riverside.  Unlike with Leach however, Gonzalez was given a field-sobriety test, determined to under the influence of alcohol, cited at the scene, and had his driver’s license was taken away.  He was later arrested, charged, and pled guilty to misdemeanor DUI.  If only poor Gonzalez had been Chief…(queue foreshadowing music)

Super Bowl XLVII Results: Baltimore 34, San Francisco 31, Mailbox 0.

A mere seven years later, Gonzalez would complete his road to redemption and be named Chief by City Manager Al Zelinka.  At the time of that announcement, Gonzalez would reminisce about his DUI, “It was a horrible decision and it was a decision that had major consequences.  I accept full responsibility for it. I realize that good people make bad decisions.”  We remind the Chief that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

 

BY THE BOOK, JUST NOT THE RIGHT BOOK

Now back to the shiny object we mentioned the day of the accident (clue: it was the sentence in bold).  Let’s take a look at the actual RPD policy regarding traffic collisions involving City officials:

Click image to enlarge

And while TMC doesn’t know who the on-duty Traffic Lieutenant nor the Watch Commander were on May 13, 2020, we do know their boss: Field Operations Division Commander Captain Eric Charrette.  And we know who his boss is: Deputy Chief Jeffrey L. Greer.  And we know who his boss is as well: Chief Larry Gonzalez.  Further, we know his boss: City Manager Al Zelinka.

Charrette, Greer, Gonzalez, Zelinka…Where does the buck stop?

Yes dear readers, despite RPD policy detailing the option available to immediately request assistance from the California Highway Patrol, specifically for the investigation of a traffic collision involving a City official where a fatality has occurred, no request from CHP to takeover the investigation was made despite the CHP Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Team only being 20 minutes away (and similar County services in the vicinity as well). And now serious questions must be asked as to the independence of the investigation into the death of Stockton given the gross conflicts-of-interest present on behalf of RPD and the deep family ties of the Melendrez family within the Department.

RPD Response to PE Reporter Brian Rokos 9 Days After the Incident?  Hold My Beer, I Got This!

You have to love the part where RPD Spokeshole, Officer Ryan Railsback says the following to Rokos of the Press Enterprise: “We can assure your readers and our community there is no bias or favoritism being given in any direction to those involved in this investigation.”  Bwhahahahahah!  TMC would not exist if that was so.

Geez Ryan, you’re looking a little pale after that statement.

We don’t know what Rokos’ response was to RPD’s email, but we know what ours’ would have been: Give us a break!  Even, “I got run out of Riverside; I got run out of Sacramento; I got run out of Laguna Woods Village; I got run out of LAWDP,” Brad Hudson had enough common sense to bring in the CHP (and ex-DA Grover Trask to boot) for Leach’s drunk driving case within 48 hours.  Saying, “Our traffic investigators with our Major Accident Investigation Team are the very best and we are confident in their unbiased work,” would’ve made us blush.  We’re not sure we could’ve typed those words without a winking smiley at the end or at least crossing our fingers behind our back.  IT DOESN’T SOLVE THE CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST problem Chief, no matter even if you brought CHP in later for a review.  Good people do bad things I guess.  

Interagency rivalry?  Whodathunkit? Wonder what Mike Soubirous thinks?

WHAT ABOUT BOB?

So back to our headline, “Was Bob Stockton Murdered?”  No.  But he was killed, rumors are by a distracted driver…with a history of perhaps distracted driving leading to another major collision involving another person, for which she was never held accountable.  Oh, and what about the City coincidentally re-paving, re-striping (and re-constructing?) Victoria Ave within months of the accident (that might be the only way to get your street paved around here from the looks of things).  But alas, we will save those stories for another day as well, as the vice tightens on our main suspects.  TMC uses its built-in, shock-proof, shit detector to determine the integrity of RPD’s investigation as:

Conflicts-of-interest and family ties ignored; non-compliance with policy for unbelievable reasons; department history of cover-ups = PEAK Bullshit!

As we hear the CHP has conducted its review of the investigation, and the final report lies in the hands of the District Attorney’s Office, we wait to see if Mike Hestrin will offer voters an October Surprise for the Mayor’s race.  Our prediction?  Not likely.

     

We need Superman, not Clark Kent

Excerpts from Riverside Fire Department’s report on the AM Melendrez/Stockton accident can be found here for our CSI: Riverside watchers:

Going to be a little difficult to re-construct the crime scene, now that the roadway’s been re-constructed.

We believe Bob Stockton deserves justice.  We believe the City of Riverside’s citizens deserve accountability for the mishandling of this situation.  We believe all people should be treated fairly and equally, regardless of whom they’re are related to.  And we hear our local fourth estate has been muzzled, despite a story already having been written on the subject-at-hand … that has not been published for some odd reason.  But never fear sweet Polly Purebread!  UnderTMC is here to save the day!

Since Councilman Melendrez sees no need for a public apology, we’ll do it for him.

Requiescat in Pace

 

UPDATE 10/20/2020:  It seems we’ve stirred the pot enough to embarrass the Press Enterprise into finally writing a follow-up story.  Our favorite part?  “Riverside police spokesman Officer Ryan Railsback said that review took place in a meeting between police and CHP officials, and the CHP verbally agreed with the findings. Railsback said no written record of the CHP’s conclusion was produced.”  The CHP won’t even formally sign off on the findings!  RPD just broke our bullshit detector!  We might have to file a claim for damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress.

And since the Press Enterprise won’t produce the letter that offended soooo many our our neighbors, WE WILL!  Enjoy!

Folks, within a the week, we’ve had a slew of media platforms censoring alternative medical points of view regarding Covid-19.  Dr. Simone Gold, M.D., came into the limelight, as a result was fired for embarrassing her place of practice, was what she said.  Well, if this is the standard, to censor on a whim, have we actually progressed as a critical thinking society?  We haven’t.  The question is, does America want to live in a ‘Fascist Thinking Country’ or a ‘Free Thinking Country?’  We have to now look at our educational institutions of learning.  What I call, ‘taxpayer paid indoctrinating mills.’   When these students graduate do they have an understanding to clearly discern the difference from truth and deceptiveness, through the use of critical thinking?  Regardless, I present the two videos for your viewing pleasure that drove the media sites insane.

Unfortunately know one listens to real Doctors.  The government narrative appears good enough.  Myself included, I have a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Pharmacy from USC, and an extensive background. What I have been telling my community for years, has been discounted.  So why is that?  It is completely political folks, I’m sorry to say.  Unions taking political positions with our state and local governments which negatively impact our communities.  Union backed schools in California have almost 50% of students who can’t read, write, comprehend, or do basic math.  Many cannot even do a simple term paper.  Why is that?  I’m not trying to downgrade, but it is fact.

So what happens to this information, which was submitted to TMC.  Three individuals, one associated high up within Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.  All three went to be tested, completed the paper work, decided they were not comfortable with an extensive q-tip inserted into their nose.  The three decided to leave the testing facility.  This is fact.  What happened next is remarkable.  All three receive letters in the mail that they were Covid-19 positive.  Why is this happening?  I don’t know.  But I’m receiving emails all over the country that this is common.  I believe, this has been sent for an FBI investigation.

I’m tired of people in the media telling me that I don’t know what I’m talking about, especially from Face Book.  One of my post was blocked and censored, by, get this folks, the Face Book’s Entertainment Writer!  Someone who has no medical background, telling me with a medical background, that I’m wrong?  As they say, “Go Figure!”  I really don’t give a crap that my Twitter account has be dismantled, but people should have the truth.

In one of the following studies it stated:

Chloroquine, a relatively safe, effective and cheap drug used for treating many human diseases including malaria, amoebiosis and human immunodeficiency virus is effective in inhibiting the infection and spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. The fact that the drug has significant inhibitory antiviral effect when the susceptible cells were treated either prior to or after infection suggests a possible prophylactic and therapeutic use for Corona Virus.  This is going back to 2005!

Of course, Dr. Anthony Fauci a political hack and fraud, and a despicable example of what happens when you mix paid politics and medicine for the benefit of the global elite.  Fauci would know about this, was he playing politics over the welfare, safety and health of our U.S. Citizens?  The majority of people I’ve talked to say “Yes”!   Fauci has served American public health in various capacities for over 50 years, we know that as fact.  But has he simply become a political pulpit for the elite status quo in Washington D.C.?  You have to wonder why are government, media and public servant doctors say hydroxychloroguine is can be dangerous, simply because, there is no double blind studies with the current Covid-19.  Dr. Fauci hasn’t treated patients for many years, but those physicians on the front line state hydroxychloroquine works.  This is a drug that wasn’t released yesterday, it has a medical track record of over 50 years.

Two of the studies on chloroquine are as follows, and yes, Fauci is obviously aware, that is his job:

                  

     Virology Journal 2005                                American Soc for Microbiology 2009

The concerned take away from this, is that hydroxychloroquine works!  Question is, “Why is media and government politicians with the support of certain medical doctors creating new rules on a 60 year old drug with an excellent track record in safety and results?”

THE STORY OF COUNCILMAN ANDY MELENDREZ’S SOCCER FIELD:

The dialog starts in 2010 around a bustling city water cooler one day with the talk that we need a soccer stadium, and it should be in the Northside, and of course, the City just happens to have the “perfect” piece of property.  Or should I say, a goulash of several properties, one of them was the former Riverside Golf Course.

Backtracking in time, about 2005 the City needed money and property to get into the full swing of Redevelopment and they had their eyes set on the Northside of Ward 1.  This was easy pickings: apathetic Northside residents, surplus utility property, out sized utility reserves, and a staff all-too-ready to violate the law and City policy in the name of advancing their careers.  The end game was simple: special interests and the City wins and the average taxpayer and ratepayer would be left looking for the license plate of the vehicle that hit them.

Forward, Council Member Andy Melendrez started selling Riverside Soccer Complex idea to the community.  Then, we get a new Community Development Director (CDD), Al Zelinka, who starts planning for a beautiful new soccer stadium with all the bells and whistles.  The CDD spends about a year and a half putting this project together. Hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions, goes into planning, designing and developing this stadium.

The City then selected two main development teams to bid for this project. The Council is ready to hear the proposals from both teams.  The Council Chamber is full that afternoon with developers, architects, contractors, money men, and probably a couple of other scoundrels.  Every one of them is dressed in their Sunday Best.  The “Big” names of Riverside elitist were sitting there: Yeager, Tavaglione, Rubin, Singletary, Hunt… all ready, willing, and able to cash in on the tax payer, as in this PE Article on the Soccer Complex back in September 2012.

We had repeatedly advised the Council and the City that this deal could not and should not go forward.  But nobody wanted to listen as our elects were salivating over each other and their proposed plans for futbol-for-all was within arms reach. THEN……… EVERYTHING FELL APART RIGHT BEFORE THEIR EYES.  WE WERE RIGHT, THEY WERE WRONG!  The charade was turning into a legal liability nightmare for the City, the integrity of Al Zelinka was in question, and the Council looked foolish.  In the end, nothing was ever done with the property UNTIL….2013-2014.

There was the unforeseeable problem for the City regarding these Northside properties, again we tried to tell them.  Problem was that the Northside properties didn’t belong to or were owned by the City.  Those properties were once owned by our Water Fund; that were sold to the Redevelopment Agency, General Fund and Electric Funds; a portion of which were subsequently given to the General Fund; all financed by the Sewer and Electric Funds; and with one property sold back to the Water Fund.  Did you get all that?  We may have missed a transaction or two, but what Council and the City failed to understand was that the properties were all tied up in the dissolution of Redevelopment!

Everyone was upset. The selected teams of developers had huge money invested in drawings and plans for the development to present to the Council.  The soccer stadium died a slow, painful, very public death that day. . . and the City’s response due to their embarrassment was to initiate another audit.  Yep, let’s get to the bottom of this, with another audit, to attempt to appease the angry natives.

City hires Baker Tilly to do the audit on the Northside.  An audit within an audit — that is what the accountants call it.  Mr. Hissom from Baker Tilley starts his comments by saying this site has already been audited by many financial firms and they had been done appropriately by some very highly quality firms.  BUT… They were more than happy to take this task on again and perform another audit.  Hey, if you could get a paycheck for work already done, would you turn it down?

So, what did this audit accomplish? NOTHING!! After all the hoopla, this property at the time, was remained in the hands of RDA (Redevelopment Agency) or the Department of Finance for the State of California.

COUNCILMAN ANDY MELENDREZ’S SANCTUARY CITY DEBACLE:

Councilman Andy Melendrez’s attempt to re-brand the City of Riverside as a “Sanctuary City” appeared to be part of his hidden agenda according to many in the community and not brought forward prominently as part of a City Council discussion way back on August 26, 2014.  As a result, a formal Code of Ethics and Conduct complaint was filed by Fontana Council candidate Tressy Capps, specifically against Melendrez’s assertion that their would be no “fiscal impact” in the adoption of this resolution, as stated in the City Council Memorandum.  The following is the filed complaint by Tressy Capps.

The following is the City Council Memorandum stating that there would be no “fiscal impact” with the adoption of this humanitarian resolution.  Really now Andy!  TMC knows that the policy gets set first: then the “ask” (cha-ching) comes later.

What was more concerning was that this item/resolution was placed on the Consent Calendar, in what could be seen as a way to sneak a real issue of community concern by the public, by not bringing it allowing discussion from differing viewpoints.  Instead, it was removed from the consent calendar for discussion and eventually shot down after a huge waste of time that only divided the community.  This kind of pandering political play makes Andy untrustworthy to many in his own Ward.  The resolution provides no clarity towards whether the term “immigrants,” applies to those here legally or illegally, and we would guess that’s intentional.  Because if they were in the country legally, we surmise there would be reason to have a resolution to protect immigrants.  Problem: Melendrez said one thing at the forefront, but stated another in the fine print as seen in the resolution.  We provide the resolution below:

Capps states that this resolution directly violates specifically page 4, item #6 of the Code of Ethics and Conduct for Elected Officials.  She cited the item, “they will seek to insure that information provided by the city government to the public is accurate and clear.”  Where is former City Attorney Greg Priamos when we need him to pick the nits?  Oh Hell, he would just make matters worse.

Many in the community feel this resolution advocates breaking Federal law.  It appears that Melendez in that case would not only be advocating violating the law, he is also offering that it would be ok for the City of Riverside to accept those who have entered the country illegally.  TMC feels this would be done without consideration of those in his community who are legal, and need help, such as are veterans, homeless, residents struggling financially to make ends meet, etc.  On the other hand, proponents state that we need to ensure that the security, protection and needs of illegal or undocumented children are addressed on a humanitarian level, which appears we would agree with…from a Federal level.  Many cities have adopted similar resolutions, even some states, but we at TMC ask what the fallout will be when you’re in conflict Federal laws.  Our guess is, watching what is transpiring in DC at the moments, the consequences will affect the general public of these “sanctuaries” negatively.

Illegal immigration cost the American taxpayer $84 billion a year. $2,724.00 per household in California alone. To say that there is no fiscal impact, I don’t know how you can justify that?

With the community inundated with flyers from the City of Riverside Mayors Race 2020, we thought we’d look at one in particular from candidate Patricia Lock Dawson, who takes the award for “Best Photoshop of the Decade” (the decade being 60 days old).  If you used our products Patti, you’d actually still look like this!  The kids you have been representing can barely read, do basic math and comprehend a book… and you want to be Mayor for the City of Riverside?  Sorry girl, you are not a leader, you haven’t been able to excel the educational performance of our precious resource, our children and teens.  It they cannot read, write, do basic math and comprehend books or writings… how can our children be prepared for the future?

Will the real Patricia Lock Dawson please stand up?

The Truth About Measure O: What you didn’t vote for, The Measure that will hit you in the face as a taxpayer with a ton of bricks in the coming years!

While the taxpayers are being brought forward with another educational bond with reference to Measure A, the College Repair Bond, we’d like to inform residents about a less debated measure that was on the ballot in 2016 that you passed: Measure O, a $392 million school facilities bond for our local K-12, Riverside Unified School District.  Measure O was to “upgrade and repair aging Riverside schools” according to RUSD’s own propaganda as stated in their flyers (below):

      

  click on image to view flyer                click on image to view RUSD Resolution

This resolution known as Measure O when placed before voters explained it was to upgrade, repair, expand, improve, and better equip classrooms, school buildings, and infrastructure. (image of resolution above).

click to enlarge and read Superintendent’s letter

Incredibly, the Superintendent’s letter to Measure O supporters immediately after its passage read, “Riverside residents are ready to invest in safer, modernized, and updated schools.”  Trustee Tom Hunt would say, “we know the priorities have to be the temporary classrooms have to be replaced with permanent classrooms,”

In an October 22, 2016 article in the Press Enterprise, RUSD Board President Tom Hunt stated, “In placing Measure O on the ballot, school district trustees decided not to provide a detailed list of proposed improvements at each school.  Officials didn’t want to make promises they may have to break later if work becomes more expensive or for other reasons.

District voters last passed a bond in 2001. The $175 million from Measure B funded nine new schools and nearly 40 major improvement projects. The money has run out, though property owners in the district are still paying off the bonds.

One thing was abundantly clear, Measure O was about fixing the problems at Riverside’s existing schools.  Flash forward to 2020: 4 news schools (STEM High School at UCR, $65 million; 3 neighborhood school estimated at $100 million total; and a new $5 million parking lot at King H.S.) are now on an expedited “expanded project list”.  Only one of these projects was listed in Measure O’s list of projects shown to the voters (2016 Long Range Master Facilities Plan, and that was for a STEM high school to be located on the grounds of the existing STEM Academy on Mt. Vernon Ave, NOT on the UCR campus).

The other projects were introduced in the Summer of 2018 (you will find no mention of them in RUSD’s report to its Independent Citizens Bond Oversight Committee as late as April 2018). That’s right: $170 million (of the $392 million guaranteed by local taxpayers through property assessments) is currently being prioritized and directed to school’s, etc. that you never voted for.

In a September 2, 2019 Press Enterprise article, Community Tax Advocate Jason Hunter voiced his concerns to the press, as a member of the Independent Citizens Bond Oversight Committee, in letters to the District, and at Board meetings themselves from the podium. The District’s response? To hide behind two shaky legal opinions they bought and hope the community isn’t paying attention until it’s too late. This was a classic bait & switch, and after exposed, your elected Trustees and their henchmen are in full cover-up mode. They will spend your money on four new schools in a period where they have lost 1,700 students in the past 5 years, and 1,000 in the past 2.

Below is the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee meeting that was held on September 9, 2019.  Why would Committee Member Tina Grande-Field berate committee members as if they don’t know what they are doing?  The original RUSD Measure O Resolution No. 2015.16-56 regarding spending calls for specifics on spending, but when confronted with those facts, she responds as such, and even threatens to leave so as to end the meeting for a lack of quorum!  Was she placed there for a nefarious purpose?  Taxpayers who are afraid to be named for whatever reason, who have contacted me through are email system, are asking if the “fix is in”.  Is this business as usual for RUSD?  Are these “independent citizens’ oversight” meetings being stacked with members favorable to those on the RSUD Board, who have a set agenda to divert funds to pet projects for political gain?  Folks, make no mistake what you see here, is what you will see if you vote for Measure A: no accountability.  The deck is stacked against you by the very elitist status quo who wish to feed on the taxpayer gravy train.

So who is Tina Grand-Field who vehemently attempted to shut down the debate?  The gal who doesn’t like to be looked at according to the video.  For one, she is Assistant Director of Purchasing for the County of Riverside.  Others in our community who pay taxes wonder if she needs a mental evaluation?  According to transparent California she makes $156, 977.14 a year, taking your money.  Her husband Rob Field, also works for the County of Riverside.  His brother John is former Chief of Staff for Supervisor John Tavaglione.  Currently he is the Director of Land Acquisition for the County of Riverside.  Now that we’ve heard her in this video in action, we have to ask the question if she is spending our monies right, or do elitist public workers answer to a higher source?

Down the road, they will spend your money on a high school for the elite in the community, instead of putting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in every high school.  Did you know the District plans on giving 130 slots at STEM Academy/High School to children of UCR faculty who may not even live in the District and pay the accompanying property taxes? 

click on image to enlarge

They will build 3 neighborhood schools, including one that’s a subsidy for a developer, Spring Mountain Ranch, this while many of our kids sit in portables they promised you they’d replace. Incidentally, up in Spring Mountain Ranch, the developer get to advertise low taxes, because RUSD agreed to shift the cost of a new elementary for the housing development, over to all the taxpayers in the district.  Yep that was what they did!

click image to enlarge

Most likely dozens of existing schools will see their funding almost completely cut to make way for the Board’s new priorities.  Thought you were getting technology or security upgrades or a repaired roof at your child’s school? Probably not. And of course all of these new schools will need new teachers, administrators, and annual maintenance. And how will that get paid for? By poaching from surrounding areas through a scheme called District-of-Choice. That’s right! your property taxes will be going to construct new schools for kids of parents who DO NOT PAY these property taxes.  To boot, RUSD will be leasing the property from UCR

In fact, last year on May 7, 2019, the District paid a consulting firm a crushing $400,000 to market RUSD to neighboring regions, money that could’ve been spent on our kids.  Further, why would they feel the need to advertise, especially after asking for the Measure O Bond?

What’s going on at RUSD is a disgrace. What will you do? The trustees are Kathy Allavie, Tom Hunt, Brent Lee (our rep in the Wood Streets), Patricia Locke-Dawson (who’s running for Mayor), and Angelov Farooq. Their contact info is: 951-788-7135, ext. 80417 kallavie@riversideunified.orgthunt@riversideunified.orgblee@riversideunified.orgpdawson@riversideunified.org afarooq@riversideunified.org  Tell them to fix the problems at our existing schools first, and stop spending money on vanity and pet projects, developer giveaways, and high-priced consultants. These people work for us and sometimes need to be reminded of that fact.  Let’s not forget, since they are so bad at efficiently spending money, they will come back to the tax  payer table and ask them for more!

If you would like to hear more of Tax Advocate Jason Hunter on the Issue of the misuse of Measure O Funds, hit this link. The title is Measure O Bond spending being done correctly?  Does anyone even care?

To boot, don’t get the boot with higher property taxes!  VOTE NO ON MEASURE A!

January 13, 2020: RRR Meeting (Residents for Responsible Representation) Topic: Riverside Community College District School Bond Measure A, scheduled for a public vote on March 3, 2020.

Remember School Repair Bond Measure O.  That passed, and now assesses approximately $50 per $100K assessed value of your home.  If your home is valued at $400K, you will have an additional $200 added to your annual property taxes.  With Measure O there was a clear and concise spending plan for badly needed school repairs.  Instead, the Trustees are directing the monies to build new schools.  The clincher is that the new schools are being built during a time when schools are experiencing a decrease in enrollment.

If Measure A passes it will do the same: increase your property tax.  If your home is valued at $250K it will be an additional $50;  If your home is valued at $400, you will have an additional $80 added to your property taxes.  We are looking at 2 cents per every $100 of the assessed value of your home.  In addition, with Measure A there is no clear cut spending plan.  On the other hand, Measure O monies are now being illegally diverted to build new schools. which is not what the campaign actually told the taxpayers om 2016.  Who’s in the middle of this?  RUSD School Board Trustee Patricia Lock Dawson, who is also running for Mayor of Riverside, and here are the rest, Trustee’s Kathy Allavie, Tom Hunt, Brent Lee (our representative in the Wood Streets) and Angelov Farooq.

CORRECTION: 02.27.2020: This video, which you can still see by hitting this link, was taken down because we were informed by RUSD School Board Trustee Tom Hunt that at the time this video was taken, the property of former Hawthorne School was sold to a developer.  Under this developer it was allowed to deteriorate and taken over by homeless.  As a result of vandalism and several fires, it was demolished, therefore we stand corrected.  Property was sold by RUSD due to issues regarding toxins, pollution, noise level and asbestos.  It deemed unsafe for children.  Thank you Mr. Hunt for the correction!

Here is the the City of Riverside Mayors Debate held on February 20, 2020 by Inland Congregations United For Change (ICUC).  Riverside Unified School District board member Patricia Lock Dawson, retired taxi driver Phi Long Tran “JD” Denilofs, retired union steward Rich Gardner, taxi driver Guy A. Harrell, City Councilman Andy Melendrez and personal assistant Acea Stapler attended and answered questioned regarding community issues.
