COMPLAINT RECEIPT FROM STATE BAR

According to Riverside County’s Grand Jury, Riverside County’s Counsel, Gregory Priamos’, Office has been accused of interfering and hindering with it’s investigation of the County of Riverside’s  IT department.  Of course, that’s nothing new here.  We in the City of Riverside have been dealing with Priamos’ clown tactics for years.  Hopefully, this signals the end of his run of the clown corruption, and this Bozo will finally be placed in clown jail where he belongs.  It’s time he paid for the malfeasance that’s been done.  The liar has cost the taxpayers millions in shabby legal advice.

This wasn’t Priamos first rodeo with the Grand Jury.  In July 2013, the Grand Jury found that the City of Riverside, Office of the City Attorney, which Priamos ran at the time, did not recognize the responsibilities of the Grand Jury and did not honor the secrecy of the Grand Jury.

So we recently uncovered a story which similarly appears to have been the same actions Priamos is accused of.
62e98a804787780b700f6a7067003f25
Whereby a Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane was accused of a Grand Jury Leak. It appears that this AG purposely leaked this secret grand jury information to strike back at her critics, then lying about it under oath, in a case that could spell the downfall of the state’s highest-ranking female politician.  Sounds as “Classic Priamos.”  But I guess this is Riverside, and there are two sets of rules, and those who support him, being the County Supervisors and it even appears the State Bar of California, can attempt to mitigate the circumstances.  Well the taxpayers certainly know better.

Let’s of course not forget that Bozo was hiring outside legal help without contracts nor authority, to the tune of $16 million during the last 5 years he was the City Attorney.  In face, the City Attorney’s Office at Riverside was never looked at by internal audit his entire tenure as chief: what will the taxpayers find during the recently-ordered audit by the Governmental Affairs Committee?  Stay tuned.

BOZO’S BIG TOP

In a classic Priamos comeback, according to the Press Enterprise, upon becoming aware of the Grand Jury’s dissatisfaction with his interference in their investigation, he offered to train the next grand jury on his office’s role…even we had to laugh at that one.  What he wants is “client control”, so he can massage the message, and redirect the Grand Jury to a favorable outcome, by the reeducation process.  The “Priamos Reeducation Process: A Study in Passive-Aggressive, Paranoid-Delusional, Obsessive Compulsive Assclownery”  Those in the loop know the scam.

The other item of contention is when his office decided to sue the registrar of voters with reference to placing the marijuana measure for the June 2015 ballot.  This could not be taken any other way, but to be a clear cut attempt to interfere with democratic process.  Further, this classic Priamos attempt was found unconstitutional according to State of California Law.  To be fair, Federal Law still classifies marijuana as a Class I drug, thus is classified as a substance which has no accepted medical use, thus illegal.  The point in this process, is that Priamos should have known the difference, but still attempted to waste millions of taxpayer monies challenging State Law, which found his argument unconstitutional.

There is also the issue of whereby his office was responsible for taking many properties from income strapped seniors and residents through the code enforcement process.  He was so proud of this, that he even had pictures of the homes taken within his office area.

Does Greg Priamos have a family history of unscrupulous legal work?  Paula Priamos’ book gives insight to the family dysfunctionality and immoral legal dealings.  When contacted by Dvonne Pitruzzello, Paula Priamos resolved to remain distanced from her cousin.

Excerpts:  “Your lucky he didn’t kill you,” I say.  If death didn’t get him in the form of an actual bullet, it could’ve gotten him from shock.  Primos men are known for strong minds and weak hearts.

“I see my father’s body doubled over the wheel.  I see his chest and arms spilling out of the car, his head dangling, blood seeping out of the wet hole in his scalp.”

SPEAKING OF CLOWN NEWS: HAM RADIO GETS CHOPPED LIVER WHEN IT COMES TO COUNCILMAN’S PUSH TO INVESTIGATE.

The Press Enterprise article states that neighbors were at odds, but commentors who were actual neighbors, stated that had no problem with it.  Hmmmm.  Radio operator Braiman’s next door neighbors, Patti and David Moran and a realtor Patti Triplett, had enough political pull to get Councilman Mike Gardner and Deputy Development Director Emilio Ramirez involved to try to find loopholes in City’s Municipal Code, again utilizing brute squad tactics to terrorize and financially threaten this one Wood Street resident.

We note Councilman Mike Gardner is currently running for re-election for his position.  The aggrieved neighbors claim the tower is a visual eyesore and decreasing the value of their property.  These neighbors must understand that the Wood Streets are not controlled by the structured rules and regulations of a Homeowners Association.  Neighbors have the right to be left alone and not be harassed by government, or of the few who feel that all should follow their utopian vision.

MR. BRAIMAN’S ATTEMPT TO FIND INTELLIGENT LIFE OUTSIDE OF RIVERSIDE CAUSES NEIGHBORS TO MOVE

We at TMC have been having difficulty getting the City to help us. Around our home we have these large 50 foot wood poles, with black wires that extend about 100 feet in both directions, and are attached to yet another wood pole.  Some of these even have small trash cans attached to them.  These are eyesores and I’m convinced they have devalued numerous resident property values. The City is telling me these poles are necessary…..hogwash!

CITY-PROTECTED VISUAL MONSTROSITIES

Kidding aside, what we seem to have here is a few influential constituents, who decide for the rest of us what is visually offensive, who lobby and employ the local government as a weapon to retaliate and terrorize a single resident. What we have not witnessed (to our knowledge) is that a majority has a problem with Mr. Braiman’s radio tower.   The ugly truth is that many residents feel they cannot come to City Council and present their views because they believe they will be retaliated by code enforcement, etc, if they do.  They see their neighbors that do complain, and observe how they are treated.  And this is how the City controls free speech: through intimidation and fear of the populace…and it needs to end if we are to prosper as a community.

Is it true that “Go Along, Get Along” employee Bob Hansen will be selected as the new City Attorney?  TMC has received information that seems to suggest the decision is made.  Hansen, former City of Moreno Valley City Attorney, was placed on administrative leave December 11, 2012 after the new Moreno Valley City Council was seated.  On December 27, 2012 Council announced Hansen will be retiring.  No apparent reason was ever given to why Hansen left his position.  Remarkably, on October 1, 2013 he apparently came out of retirement to take the position of Deputy City Attorney for the City of Riverside under then City Attorney Gregory Priamos.index                                                 Robert Hansen, Riverside Deputy City Attorney

Again we see a phenomenon which is apparent time and time again only in the public sector, a scheme of retiring early in order to work again for a second public sector pension, a scheme known as “double dipping.”  We as taxpayers never know if they are coming or going.  Will City of Riverside Double Dipping Deputy City Attorney Robert Hansen be the next Double Dipping City of Riverside’s City Attorney under former Priamos’s Big Top?

Former City of Riverside employee Jason Hunter makes Channel 9 News, click the link to view the coverage of last night’s City Council Meeting in Pasadena.  Hunter was fired from Riverside Public Utilities for attempting to expose fraud, just recently won a settlement against the City, as a result.

Local Riverside residents Jason Hunter and Vivian Moreno rev up the City of Pasadena’s Monday night City Council Meeting at public comment with the issue of recycled city executives.  Incidentally, both Hunter and Moreno were of the 15 winners of the 2014 VIC (Very Influential Citizen) Awards given out by the the Coalition for Better Government, Riverside.   The story broke a couple of weeks ago that $6.4 million in taxpayer monies were embezzled by a former Public Works employee, Danny Ray Wooten, for over a ten year period.  So who was minding the store?  Former Riverside Assistant City Manager Michael Beck, now Pasadena City Manager, and former Riverside Public Works Director Siobhan Foster, now Pasadena’s Public Works Director.  The question of recycled executives taking part of what we see a culture of corruption.

vCLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW YOUTUBE PUBLIC COMMENTS OF BOTH HUNTER AND MORENO IN PASADENA

Another fun fact is the the accounting firm of Mayer Hoffman McCann was the City of Pasadena’s!  Remember, Mayer Hoffman McCann was the same accounting firm that missed misappropriation of fund at the City of Bell.  Incidentally, Mayer Hoffman McCann had been the City of Riverside for quite some time.  Pasadena’s loss of $6.4 million beats Bell’s $5.5 million misappropriation of funds.

Incidentally, former interim City Attorney Christina Talley was the former City Attorney for the City of Pasadena during the years of 1994-1996, cities do recycle their employees!  She came here to Riverside, while we sent former Public Works Director Siobhan Foster and former Assistant City Manager Michael Beck to Pasadena.

TUESDAY’S COUNCIL MEETING NEWLY HIRED INTERIM CITY MANAGER LEE MCDOUGAL MADE SOME EAR SHATTERING COMMENTS.

Pu1T0UfvSGJyBBMf-r3kE2dJ-d6fbR2ktzstZ2nkWjkh1QUhkDIc0xkOsbm-1VNCfVrccqA5V7pcE74BVoRrQoCouncilman Paul Davis

At Tuesday’s City Council, on January 13, 2015, Councilman Paul Davis suggested that a independent auditor be hired to overlook the City of Riverside’s financials.  Someone completely independent of the City, in order to give an honest and forthright opinion, in order to prevent an event such as Pasadena. This was downplayed by Interim City Manager Lee McDougal, stating these were two different forms of city governments, hence there are differences in how financials are processed for payouts.  He went on to state that the City of Riverside has an Internal Auditor who oversees our financials, thus implying no need for an independent auditor.  Interim City Manager McDougal just arrived and has already contradicted himself, because the City’s Internal Auditor works for the City, already a contradiction. The City Manager and the Internal Auditor need to know that they work for the pleasure of the Council, and more importantly, they work for the employers who pay their salaries…the Taxpayers.  Incidentally, McDougal made in known that the position of the Internal Auditor had been elevated to Assistant City Manager.  With Lee’s scenario, will Riverside have another Bell or Pasadena?

Interim Riverside City Manager Lee McDougal

McDougal also seemed to take offense at the public criticizing staff and employees, and attempted what seemingly was to “hard ball” public criticism; the taxpayer and employer.  Well, Mr. McDougal needs to read up on California Assembly Bill 194, Section 1, 54954.3 to start.  Should we call it taxpayer insubordination?

We refer specifically to the following:

(c) (1) Subject to reasonable regulations promulgated pursuant to subdivision (b), the legislative body of a local agency, or its presiding officer or staff, acting in their official capacity on behalf of the legislative body, shall not prohibit, limit, or otherwise prevent any of the following:
(A) Public criticism of the policies, procedures, programs, or services of the agency, or of the acts or omissions of the legislative body or its officers or employees acting in their official capacity.

Therefore, Mr. McDougal, don’t tell your boss, the taxpayer, that they don’t have the right to criticize their government staff, you may also want to take a look at Baca vs. Moreno Valley.

Unlike our former wimpy City Manager Scott Barber, we find it appealing and respectful, that at least this Interim City Manager lays his cards on the table, and that’s a good thing, because we all love a lively debate, especially when it comes to debating for the absolute benefits of the taxpayer.  Let’s remember, TMC’s focus is taxpayers fighting for the greater good of taxpayers, and that’s, that.

But if McDougal was referring to the Reiko Kerr/Gary Nolff alleged incident or Darlene Elliot, then he must certainly need to do his homework.  Again, Welcome to the City of Riverside….hopefully you can handle it.

Carol Brodeur · Commenter in the Press Enterprise.

It appears that the interim city manager of Riverside would like to restrict free speech. Lee Mcdougal has threatened that “I will respond” if someone rebukes city employees. I would like to know what he intends to do? “There’s nothing in the charter that allows a resident to come to a city council meeting and berate a city employee,” said he. Hmmm. How about in the CONSTITUTION? “It’s unacceptable to me, and I will respond…uh…when that happens. So you should know that in advance.” Is he going to call Chief Sergio Diaz and have people arrested? Personally, I am glad that Vivian Moreno called Mayor Bailey on his $50 price for attending the upcoming “State of the City” address.

UPDATE: 01.15.2015: TO BE FAIR, CITY ATTORNEY LEE MCDOUGAL HAS BEEN REACHING OUT TO COMMUNITY INDIVIDUAL AND SETTING MEETING TO DISCUSS ISSUES.  Which we believe is a first for Riverside.  He was a bit taken back by when told what the residents perceived he meant by his statements made on Tuesday’s City Council meeting.  It appeared to us that what he said was not directed to any thing said at City Council public comment or by any emails or complaints made by any individual or residents regarding the city or staff.

CITY OF RIVERSIDE CANCELS BB&K CONTRACT FOR CITY ATTORNEY SERVICES:  This means that BB&K Attorney Christina Talley will no longer act as the Interim City Manager for the City of Riverside.  In her place, Supervising Deputy City Attorney Kristi Smith will now assume the position of City Attorney.  Taxpayers were paying BB&K $19,500 per month for her wonderful legal advice.  Well good riddance..
