The Raincross Group goes to all this effort to put this debate together, inconjunction with Charter Communications and the Press Enterprise, and hides the video.  We are told by a commenter that Charter Communications is airing it on their channel, and is also on their youtube site.  To this day, the video is still not on Raincross site.  The Press Enterprise was also supporting entity in this event, no report has yet to be posted in the press as to this event.  Have they, the PE, already made their decision of who to endorse?

As of Election Day June 7th, 2016, The Raincross Group has yet to post the Charter Communications/ Raincross Group/ Press Enterprise 2016 Mayoral Debates conducted May 3rd, 2016.  Further, the Press Enterprise has yet to post the debates, even though they were a Sponsor!  We believe at TMC, that this debate showed the incumbent Mayor William “Rusty” Bailey in his true colors, not in a leadership best.  What the community is saying, not a “leader at all.”  Therefore, what we have is an embarrassment to these sponsors, and their week attempt to protect “local establishment politics.”

First there is a short introduction by the President of the Raincross Group, Gary Christmas. Then the candidates are introduced by Charter’s Brad Pomerance.

Part 2: The first question to the 2016 Mayoral Candidates by Brad Promerance. “If you were to win the election, what top three priorities would you do as Mayor?” Transparency was also theme in this part of the debate. Question as follows referring transparency in City government: “In what way has there been a of transparency over the last four years?” All gave responses to this pertinent question.

In Part 3: The first single question was directed toward incumbent Mayor Bailey. “What do you consider your main accomplishment as Mayor, and is there anything you would change in the second term?”  The question for the remaining candidates was as follows. “If elected Mayor, what would you do differently?”  The investigation of Councilman Paul Davis and Mike Soubirous was brought to the forefront.  A bit of a cat fight pursued between Davis and Bailey regarding that issue.  A must watch!

Part 4: The question in this part was as follows:  Riverside’s Mayor has very little political or policy making powers, but can be influential in other ways.  What is your leadership style, and how would you use it to achieve your goals for the City?   The question of “dark fiber” came to the forefront by Vivian Moreno.  If this ‘dark fiber’ is being paid for by Public Utilities for the good of a few businesses, the legality of this was brought forward.  Bailey doesn’t appear to understand why installing ‘dark fiber’ with RPU monies would be violation.  He nonchalantly describes, “that the pattern of suing the City will continue..”  But why Mayor Bailey?  The $115 Public Utilities law suit was also discussed, Mayor Bailey attacks Davis and blames the initiation of the suit on the Davis Camp.  Not so true, not the Davis camp at all.  Incidentally, Davis states that he is in support of this lawsuit. A must see!

Part 5: Riverside’s Mayor has very little political or policy making powers, but can be influential in other ways.  What is your leadership style, and how would you use it to achieve your goals for the City?  This was posed to Mayoral Candidate Sally Martinez and Councilman Paul Davis.  The $115 million Public Utilities law suit was questioned by Brad Pomerance.  Was it lawful as to allegations made with reference to the proper transfer of monies to the General Fund as otherwise indicated in the lawsuit.  Mayoral Candidate Vivian Moreno states, “If the people here on this panel do not understand the laws that are set in place, Prop 26 and Prop 218, they shouldn’t be running for Mayor.  A must see!

Part 6: The question posed to the candidates this time was reference to the lack of diversity on City Council, Boards and Commisions.  If Mayor what would you do broaden the city’s outreach to diverse communities and get more residents involved with civic affairs?  The question on Measure B, increasing the salary for Council members was also posed to the candidates.

Part 7: The question posed to the candidates as follows:  “What specific steps would you take to bridge the city’s multi million dollar budget deficit?”  and “Would you include a proposal by the City Manager (John Russo) to increase the sales tax?”  Mayor Bailey accused Davis of voting for every city budget, was corrected by Davis, on record, that he did not.

Part 8: The question of the Billion Dollar Trolley system was posed to the candidates.  Five million of taxpayers monies was currently spent just studying the idea.  Bailey flip-flops and is not for it now, and discounts the billion dollar cost.  Then there was yes-no lightening round questions.  “Do you believe that the Riverside’s Renaissance was a mistake?”  “What is your position on Measure A, the prosecutorial initiative?”  Davis hammers Bailey on why he did not veto Measure A.  A must see!  Last question, “Would you use the Mayor’s veto power?”

Last, but not least, closing statements by all Mayoral Candidates.

Don’t Forget to Vote Vivian Moreno

The RAINCROSS Group Debate, Why won’t they air the debate video……. Because Vivian Moreno was the breakout candidate and Paul Davis was the aggressor…and their golden boy, Bailey, well……. 

The RAINCROSS Group’s golden boy, Mayor William Rusty Bailey, LOST the 2016 Charter Debate and now they are refusing to air it because of his failed performance.  I had a front row seat, Paul Davis took the right jab for the one-two comb punch then I took the straight-shot right to the truth.

Who are the people that call themselves the RAINCROSS Group?

RAINCROSS Group Mission Statement:  Behind every great city is a team of leaders that executes the vision and many followers who support the leader’s work. RAINCROSS strives to address the accountability mechanisms that make sure the leadership is on the right course. Our organizations strive to offer sound strategic support and oversight to keep our city on the right path.  Governance, which includes recruiting and development of new leaders on boards and commissions, monitoring systems and signaling mechanisms of transparency, and identifying critical quality of life to sustain higher standard of living.  Focusing on good governance ensures the success of leadership visions and the long term success of Riverside.

Listen I have watched this group lie, control, and try to manipulate the message of our corrupt government.  They have been in the drivers seat for the last 25 years, well then, they drove us right off the fiscal cliff.  We are in the worst fiscal condition in the history of Riverside, and according to their statement these people claim to have put us there.  This group is comprised of only those who claim to be the leaders, and those who are their followers. To belong to this group, you have to be invited.  People who think like this, is exactly what is wrong with this city.

I was looking forward to this debate because my message was the message that would expose the leadership of the RAINCROSS Group to the real truth about the city.  I knew that their elitist mentality couldn’t handle it.  It was going to be fun! Tuesday morning May 3rd I woke up early to get prepared for the debate at Charter Communication. This was the debate that was sponsored by the RAINCROSS Group, Charter Communications and the Press Enterprise.  I was ready and excited to attend. This debate would be televised in order to have a good account of the 2016 Mayorial candidates. We were all told to be there at 9 A.M. The debate started at 10 A.M.  I was there early and was ready to go.  I was greeted by some members of the RAINCROSS Group, Charter staff, and a Greater Riverside Chamber Staff member.  We were all instructed to wait in a conference room where they had a lovely breakfast spread.  Paul, Sally, Nancy, and myself were there on time. We all enjoyed pleasantries prior to the debate. There was no Bailey. His entourage gets there 15 minutes before we start, and he finally strolls in 10 minutes before the main event.

I have to ask, was Bailey’s staff there on City time campaigning for him?  Paul Davis’ staff was not there.  I asked about it later, and Paul’s camp said they were on city time, and it would appear to be a conflict if they attended the debate.  Again there are two sets of rules for Bailey and all others, and in his life he needs an entourage.

The actual debate started at about 10:20 A.M., we are on.  I was a bit nervous, but I knew the facts and issues surrounding the city really well, so I was ready to take on Paul and Rusty. When we were all finished, I was satisfied with my performance, as I’m sure Mr. Davis was with his. After the actual filming was done, moderator Brad Pomerance acknowledged each candidate.  Sally was first, he said “ Good Job,” then Paul, he said “ Good Job,” then Rusty, he winked at Rusty, then said  “Good job,” then it was Nancy, he said “ Good Job.”……. Now I am waiting for my hand shake and “Good Job,” instead!!!!!! Mr. Pomerance grabs my hand and stated very loudly for all to hear, “I like you, I really like you.”…. I WON!

Following the debate, I left after all was finished.  It was told to me later that Mr. Pomerance entered the room, and made a comment to the guests that were still there, that he was surprised with the performance of Vivian Moreno. The story goes that Gary Christmas from the RAINCROSS group mumbles something and then brushes me off…. OK Mr. Christmas, I brushed you and your RAINCROSS Group off a long time ago when you were the Measure A (the water measure) lying spokes person for your so called civic minded group.

The Candidates were all told that the debate video would start airing Monday, May 9th.  After the 9th there was no airing, I e-mailed Brad Pomerance and he stated it would air Wednesday or Thursday of that week. Those days past, still no video! Today is Sunday May 15th, still  No Video Airing…..

Not airing this debate is offensive to the voters of Riverside and to all the candidates who participated in this forum. The RAINCROSS Group is part of the Special Interest problem in this city. Just look at their membership. This clearly demonstrates that they are trying to suppress and control the message, again. This debate was sponsored by the RAINCROSS Group, Charter Communications and the Press Enterprise.  Are they all involved in suppressing this message?

Just a quick note: Thirty Miles believes that Bailey will be running for John Tavaglione’s County Board of Supervisors seat in two years. Bailey is a career politician, Riversiders need to put him out of his misery.  VOTE ANYBODY BUT BAILEY!

What is also interesting is that Mayoral Candidate Vivian Moreno has a Mayoral Facebook site; but only Davis, Bailey and Melendez were listed as linked.

Just for the record, Paul and Bailey, Do you know who is taking the “Vivian Moreno for Mayor” signs and replacing them with yours?  This is what the sign looks like.
