Today is the day…..  As I sit silently in my living room and reflect on the years I have been writing for Thirty miles of Corruption, I can’t help but wonder what got me here…..Vivian Moreno

Briefly I will try to explain. When I became very curious about what was going on at City hall I was dumbfounded with all the corruption I witnessed and discovered.  The Corruption was diabolical, the waste, fraud and abuse was hideous,  and the SEX GAMES, Relationships and the  dehumanizing of Women was so in-your-face that I needed a place to put all this information. WHO WOULD BELIEVE IT!

I have been holding on to this particular story content for years. The content was so offensive and unbelievable even for me. I was waiting for the right time to post this information.  And here we are November 2016 Presidential Election, SEX as the number one topic of consideration in nominating the right choice for president of the United States Of America. Trump with all his offensive banter and Bill Clinton with all his indiscretions.  Never in my wildest imagination could I have believed this to be so!

Today with the highted dialog of sex and the dehumanizing of women on the National Stage, I was compelled to tell this story.  Do the Citizens of Riverside even care this has been going on at City Hall for years-decades?  Do the citizens of Riverside even care their tax dollars pay for all the Frat-Boy-Fun at City Hall?

I have written about some high level promotions at the City of Riverside, California….women who we’re promoted simply because they  had sex  with their boss and  were being good soldiers. It’s a dog eat dog world at City hall and I mean that literally.  The first article I wrote for TMC was the “Love Contract” I had heard rumors of swingers, affairs, and sex promotions going on with high level leadership, and I wanted to make sure the tax payer was protected.

DISCLAIMER:  This article is rated-R (18+), not suitable for people under 18.  Content is STRONG in impact; It is advised that people under the age of 18 do not view the content, due to the strength of the elements within. The Official City of Riverside documents contained in this article are explicit, sexual in nature and should not be read by children. Yes Folks, you the taxpayer, Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, Tea Partiers, and those of you who just don’t give a dam, Pay for all of this at Riverside City Hall.  These are the PERKS!

DEDICATION:  This new article I am writing will be dedicated to the special interest here in Riverside, The Greater Riverside Chamber Queen Cindy Roth, the Rain Cross group and the local media The Press Enterprise.  These people have their heads so high up the ass of the city it’s disgusting.  They will, and have supported all new taxes and continue to try to cover up all the really deep dark secrets hidden at city hall.  Remember you the Taxpayer, Citizen, Female, Male, Republican, Democrat, Independent or Tea Party,  pay for all the waste, fraud, abuse , and the DEHUMANIZING of women at Riverside City Hall.  These people all knew it and didn’t do anything about it!  Their Pathetic….

Here we are in the once quaint quiet town of Riverside California. The day I walked into the Council Chambers in 2010, to speak before the Council I’m sure I took them by surprise. I wasn’t afraid, ashamed or lacking the confidence to tell it like it was. I asked about rumored affairs that were going on. I felt everything was on the table as long as the tax payer was paying for it. I spoke about sexual relations that caught everyone off guard. The City pulled the infamous video from the public where I spoke of a sexual encounter and the leadership at City hall couldn’t handle it. The City Manager at the time Lee Mac Dougal, he tried to demean and discredit me with his comments.  Little did he Know I had all the information on his sorted past.  The hypocrisy spilling over from the dais was off the charts . They thought they were going to shame me….REALLY, HOW DARE THEY!

Here is the Video Where I refer to the sexual escapades of some employees at City Hall.

I will set up this first OFFICIAL CITY document: Tax Payers in Riverside  paid Millions of dollars to this claim In lost productivity, Moral, Time card fraud, and the  actual Lawsuit itself , this was circa 1996:  This is your…..RIVERSIDE POLICE DEPARTMENT( RPD), Defendant Ron Adams, you remember Councilman Steve Adams’s brother?  Does this all come down to just Boys being Boys or is this politics as usual…..   As the spoken words just preached by Mrs. Michele Obama, “This is not politics as usual,”  ah Yes it is Michelle! …. in Riverside it is.  In this document you have both the dehumanizing of women and lewd sexual acts performed on officers during work hours.  That’s considered time card fraud. (Getting Blow Jobs on work hours with clerks in the office is not allowed).  We the taxpayer paid this claim handsomely , the women in this case was fired and the officers were promoted and climbed the ladder of success. And I’m sure these officers we’re later regarded as upstanding respectable public employees.  WOMEN OFFICERS OF THE RPD WERE REFERED TO AS “THE PUSSY PLATOON,” (Page 5, 21).  Two female officers to a patrol car was referred to as the “CUNT CAR.”   In 1989, when Keers yawned in the bay, Detective Ron Adams (Councilman Steve Adam’s brother, prior police officer), commented, “Look her mouth is open, she must be trying to get promoted.”  Nice Ron!   The Posted Lawsuit was Settled 1996:

Current Claim 2015 Official City of Riverside Documents, this time CODE ENFORCEMENT:  Not much has changed in 10 years.  The culture of sexual Corruption has been ongoing. This Frat-Boy-Mentality had created a huge financial liability for the taxpayer. This Claim itself will and has already cost the taxpayer tens of millions of dollars in lost productivity, Moral, Time card fraud, Oral sex during work hours with interns, and the actual Lawsuit itself . Three women have endured this repulsive treatment for 10 years. This suit claims these women were asked  “ Who would you like to Marry, Fuck or Kill.” Who thinks about murder during work hours? Is this normal Banter?  “WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO KILL!” Make no mistake about it they wanted to know which employee they wanted to kill…..MURDER…..

FULL ROBERTSON SEXUAL HARASSMENT COMPLAINT

As an involved Taxpaying, Voting , Republican in the city of Riverside I was shocked with  all the self gratification going on …….Sex-in-the-City parking lot, in city automobiles, blow jobs during work time with interns.  Couldn’t these officers do this after work?

Just the 2015 Lawsuit alone will cost the taxpayer approximately $5 million dollars, it could be more.  This suit is still going through the court system.  This may partly explain why the City desperately needs more money.   The taxpayer needs to or will be forced to Pay for all the STUPID MISTAKES, SEX PROMOTIONS WITH INCOMPETENT PEOPLE, SEX BANTER AND JUST PLAIN BAD BEHAVIOR that has been going on at City Hall for decades!

I don’t care and I’m sure many taxpayers don’t care either, if you want to be swingers, have affairs or receive Blow Jobs, do it after work on your own time.  The Taxpayer should not have to pay for this Vulgar behavior.  The Demoralization of women at City Hall continues……..POLITICS AS USUAL IN RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA!

frontpgWATER LAW SUIT AGAINST THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA (CLICK LINK TO VIEW FULL LAW SUIT)

On June 4, 2015, the City of Riverside, under newly christened City Attorney Gary Geuss filed suit against the State of California with regards to the issue of having to comply with a 24% cut in usage.  The city asked the state in the suit to include it in a program that lets Northern California entities get away with just 4% cuts because they are taking their water from surface sources, like rivers that are going to dump their contents in the sea if not snatched. The State ignored the City’s request. Riverside gets its water from underground sources, not the surface, and that’s a critical difference to the state.  The problem stems from the Board’s definition of a “reliable water source;” namely, the designation refers only to surface water and not groundwater, or water located underneath the earth’s surface.  So the City filed the above lawsuit in Fresno County Superior Court to stop the State Water Resources Control Board from commanding our City to comply.

In its complaint, Riverside asked the state why a “groundwater-sufficient entity” couldn’t be inserted and was told, “It would simply be too difficult to include groundwater in the 4% tier, but provided no evidence why including groundwater suppliers would be any more difficult than including surface water suppliers. No other reason was giving for listening to one class of water suppliers, but ignoring the other class of water suppliers.”  KPCC said Riverside’s lawsuit was the largest objection registered to date against the state’s water policy. Water districts are just now beginning to implement government directives which aim to implement Governor Jerry Brown’s order that water usage be cut 25% among statewide nonagricultural users. The cuts range between 8% and 36%, compared to comparable time periods in 2013.  Riverside wants a temporary restraining order and injunction to avoid $10,000-a-day fines for noncompliance with an emergency order.

Scott Simpson was former Chief of Enforcement for the California EPA Department of Toxic Substances Control, and also worked for the Department of Food and Agriculture in their Environmental Hazards Assessment Program specializing in ground water contamination.  Simpson tells City Attorney Geuss that he forgot the “winning” argument against the State of California!  The residents have a “contractual right” to water in the City of Riverside, therefore the State of California has no right to impose water restrictions!  The right to water in the City of Riverside is tied to every resident who owns property, for perpetuity.  What is important to note in this law suit is that the City of Riverside admits owning water rights pre-1914, which releases us from the constraints of the Governor Moonbeams imaginary drought emergency.  What people need to realize we are in the year of “El Nino” and we will receive a boat load of water this year, more than we can handle.  Unfortunately, the State of California cannot run a business, how can we allow them to run the State?

SCOTTVIDEOTWOCLICK THIS LINK TO HEAR WHAT CITY ATTORNEY GARY GEUSS FORGOT TO PLACE IN THE LAW SUIT TO PROTECT RESIDENTS WATER RIGHTS, WHICH IS THE RESIDENTS “CONTRACTUAL RIGHT” TO THAT WATER.

Simpson states that water is protected for the use and benefit of all Californians according to the California State Water Resources Control Board. California’s waters cannot be owned by individuals, groups, businesses, or governmental agencies. But permits, licenses, and registrations give individuals and others the right to beneficially use reasonable amounts of water. That’s paraphrased from the California State Constitution. The precise language states that the people of the State of California own the water resources of the State for their use and enjoyment.

Water Expert Scott Simpson then states that the State of California is the care taker of the water, in charge of improving the quality and making more water available for their use. You are not selling us water you are you provide us with the service of transportation for our use and enjoyment.  So why has the State of California unfortunately betrayed the taxpayers?  Some terms come to mind, “greed,” “incompetence,” “over construction,” and “ineptness.”  Where’s the accountability?  Well folks that will never transpire.

CLICK TO VIEW IMAGES OR CLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW STATE WATER RESOURCES CONTROL BOARD SITE WHICH SIMPSON WAS REFERRING TO

Riverside Public Utilities deputy general manager Kevin Milligan said the city wants the water board to include groundwater in its definition of a reliable water supply.  “The only difference is surface water you can see and groundwater you can’t,” Milligan told the paper.  “We have our own wells and our own water resources,” Riverside Public Utilities spokesperson Heather Raymond told the Los Angeles Times. “No matter how much we save it has zero effect on the state water supply.”  Riverside gets its water from groundwater basins it controls and has a four-year supply on hand. That’s the minimum necessary to be included in the 4% tier. Over the years, the city has drilled wells, captured storm water, invested in a water treatment plant and spent millions on a recycled water infrastructure, Riverside Public Utilities Deputy General Manager Kevin Milligan told the Riverside Press-Enterprise.

The question then became, the City of Riverside doesn’t really have to comply with the State Resources Control Board, since our water rights are pre-1914, and the Control Board was set up thereafter.  Further, the residents who own property in the City of Riverside have a “contractual right” to the that water, as a result of those water rights given to us by a court of law prior to 1914.  The city says it hasn’t imported water from the Colorado River or the State Water Project since 2008.  According to the Courthouse News Service, the city’s complaint says, “(A)ny water that Riverside does not extract will sit in the basin, and cannot be extracted or used by others. Riverside is truly ‘water independent.’ ”  This is something to remember folks, because the City of Riverside is mandated by law to harvest “x” amount of water.  Water cannot be conserved and sit in the ground.  If it does, it can go beyond the acceptable water table, and cause damage and weakness to surrounding infrastructure.

garyguessjokers

Riverside City Attorney Gary Geuss, with double indemnity prior clown behind him, a tough circus act to follow!

Has anybody seen the moniker around town stating “I Own It?”  What does that mean?  It means that if you are a homeowner in the City of Riverside you actually have a “contractual right” to water and you therefore own the “public utilities.”  You may ask, “Why does the City state we are “shareholders” as a result of owning property attached to a home, and then be treated as we are not?”  The straight answer is that the Riverside Water Board represents City interest, therefore not the best interest of the taxpayers is considered.  The only way to protect your rights, your right to water etc. is to form a “taxpayer advocacy” group which will lobby for our rights as homeowners and property owners.

We haven’t even addressed those residents who own rights to the Gage Canal water etc., they can pretty much run there water down the street if they want. There is no drought restriction for them! The point is that are city forefathers made sure there would not be a problem with the access of this important commodity, and this was insured years ago, and pre-1914.  Therefore, are rights to that groundwater should be fought for with a vengeance.  It is as the squirrel who prepared themselves for the winter and stored his food supply early.  Another squirrel comes about, who didn’t prepare, and wants to take it away.  That is what the State of California is attempting to do.

RIVERSIDE PUBLIC UTILITIES ADMITS WE ARE PRE-1914 BY ADVERTISING PROMO.. CUSTOMER OWNED SINCE 1895.

img040two  enlarge1895ownership

What City of Riverside residents must know about the drought misinformation, is that the residents have a “contractual right” to water prior to 1914. Which means that we as a City do not have to comply with the laws regarding drought mandated by Governor Edmund G. Brown, also known as “Moonbeam.”  According to Riverside Public Utilities own advertisement, we have been publicly and customer owned since 1895!  You therefore are not receiving correct information.  Every homeowner in the City of Riverside has a contractual right to water from the publicly owned Bunker Hill Basin in San Bernardino.  The next big question Riversidian’s should be asking is why we as a publicly owned utility should have to advertise to ourselves?  The Riverside Public Utilities spends multitudes of money to promote, which is technically, a public monopoly with reference to utilities.  WHY IS THERE A NEED TO ADVERTISE?  Is it to divert monies to those special clients in the advertising business?  Can this be interpreted as a gift of public funds?  It’s all wrong and should not be done!  Further, the ratepayers demand the utility overages refunded back!  Don’t attempt to try to craft new language and use are reserves to purchase another $40 million dollar building.

                          ROCK STAR RUSSO                                REAR VIEW MCDOUGAL

I’m going to go with the notion that these two can’t get enough of each others egos or maybe because they will be starting a new private gentlemen’s club in Riverside. Never the less it will be great material for Thirty Miles.

This is my problem, Mr Lee McDougal doesn’t need the job! He has a pension of 211,000.00 each and every year for the rest of his life. The City of Riverside Just paid him an additional 145,000.00 for 6 months of service. And now we want to pay him an additional 37,000.00 per year. Thats approx $400,000,00 he will be paid this year.This is nothing more than Mr Russo taking care of his buddy… I thought this kind of management was over. He may be qualified for the job but I’m sure there are a lot of people qualified for the job that live in Riverside, who actually need the job like Jason Hunter,.Jason is way more qualified for this job than McDougal.

Mr McDougal we thank-you for your service to our city but we are over it now. Its time for you to move on. Stop being GREEDY!

According to a posting on Next Door Wood Streets Neigborhood site, the City of Riverside’s Intergovernmental and Communications Officer (AKA City Spokes Hole), Phil Pitchford released the following posting indicating newly hired Riverside City Manager John Russo will be contracting the services of former interim Riverside City Manager Lee McDougal.  Rock Star Russo is proposing to systematically audit all city departments on a rotating basis as part of a program headed to the City Council for its endorsement on Tuesday (7/28). Russo proposes to start with the city’s largest department – Riverside Public Utilities – and two others, Finance and Human Resources, which interact with all other city departments.  McDougal will be contracted out at $37,000.00 per year to manage the audit program, plus will be paid expenses and mileage, and would be paid out of the City Manager’s existing budget.  Another good example of ‘recycled executive trash?”

The tentative rotation for audits would be:
Fiscal year 2015/16 – Riverside Public Utilities, Finance, Human Resources
Fiscal year 2016/17 – Riverside Police Department, Community and Economic Development, City Manager’s Office
Fiscal year 2017/18 – Riverside Fire Department; Public Works; Parks, Recreation and Community Services
Fiscal year 2018/19 – General Services Department, Innovation and Technology, Museum and Cultural Affairs
Fiscal year 2019/20 – Riverside Public Libraries, City Clerk, City Attorney

What seems to be unclear about the Next Door Wood Street Neighborhood site is why the City of Riverside is a participant.  The site is for homeowners of the wood street and surrounding Riverside neighbors, and one of the criteria is that you are a “homeowner.”  Residential taxpayers are asking the question if this is a City of Riverside monitoring site, to actually see what residents may not be “team players.”  Was it started by the City of Riverside, some even mentioned former Mayor Ron Loveridge’s name.  You know those conspiracy theorist in our neighborhood. No one has since “denied” or “acknowledged” that this may or may not be true.

According to the Legislative Counsel’s Digest, AB 194, Campos. Open Meetings: Public Criticism and Comment states under SECTION 1. Section 54954.3 of the Government Code is amended to read: 54954.3.

CLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW FULL DOCUMENT ON public criticism, which McDougal may not have agreed with…
(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.

McDougal who is remembered by the residents of the City by how he attempted to control public speakers at the podium by changing the camera view.  The new camera position viewed public speakers from the rear end at a far distance.  This didn’t allow viewers to see speakers mannerisms and facial expression.  What came about was that this was reversed by Russo.  People still couldn’t figure out why McDougal did this.  Some residents felt he attempted to treat them as small children, which was taken as a personal insult.  A second layer of this rear view action, was he actually attempting to control the message and our 1st Amendment right to free speech in a public arena?  The overall picture the community saw, was that he was just attempting to punishing the community if they didn’t act right.  Well TMC found that McDougal didn’t morally act right in the City of Montclair according to sources, which now changes the perspective of behavior to contradiction.  Regardless, this is how taxpaying residents are viewing him.

THINKING FROM BEHIND IS WHY MANY CANNOT THINK FORWARD: AS IS THE CASE WITH INTERIM CITY MANAGER LEE MCDOUGAL:  HERE YOU GO LEE, THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.. HORSES ASS IS TOO GOOD FOR YOU, WILL STICK TO A DONKEY’S ASS..

UPDATE: RPOA (RIVERSIDE POLICE OFFICER’S ASSOCIATION) EMBEZZLEMENT SCAM CONTINUES TO EMBARRASS BOARD OF DIRECTORS.  Questions have arose if RPD or individuals in law enforcement who are their to serve and protect the public, can they “competently handle money?”  In this case it was a whole lot of money to the tune of $337,017.07!  Again, this was all under the nose of President Brian Smith and Vice President Aurelio Melendrez (Council Andy’s son), and wasn’t until RPD Detective Money (real name) figured it out.  At the time of her arrest, Detective Brian Money, of the Riverside Police Department economic crimes unit, said Archibeque was highly trusted and had access to and most of the control over financial records – a mistake he said is common among small businesses and nonprofit organizations that are victimized by embezzlers.  I don’t think so Det. Money Bags, the majority of all non-profits and businesses have the two check process, implemented to avoid such embarrassing situations. Again 300K, that is shear incompetence to leave one individual in charge, with no secondary oversight in order to verify outgoing payments.

But the thing to remember this happened through a slew of highly tax paid law enforcement officers.  The good officers of RPD should be asking for their resignation, if you need help contact TMC.  It only stands to reason why they, RPOA, debacled the Councilman Soubirous character assassination, and abused the very integrity of their association, therefore placing a “black eye” against the “troops” and the community of Riverside.

weloveourceleryAs in this pic, Smith and Melendrez were just simply distracted by the size of the salary celery…  Was this why they didn’t catch that measly $337, 017.07 of RPD Officers money?

JUST FOR LAUGHS! NO PUN ON RPOA…

Caaaaaan you feeeeeel the looooove toniii-i-ight?

Newly christened Ward 7 Councilmember-elect, John “the Exterminator” Burnard, is already embroiled in controversy.  In an email from Burnard (jburnard@riversideca.gov) to Ag Park (aka, Arroyo Park) family member, Marilyn Whitney, which was then forwarded to RRR (Residents for Responsible Representation) Chairperson, Sharon Mateja, Burnard states, “Got this done today,” in reference to a, “Stop Work,” order issued to the developer of Ag Park by the City.

Thirty Miles of Corruption asks Burnard to elaborate on the email.  What exactly did, “he,” get done?  Many in the Ag Park family are confused and annoyed that Burnard seems to be taking credit for something he could not have accomplished single-handedly.  Despite our inquiry, Thirty Miles of Corruption.com has not yet heard back from Burnard.  Councilman-elect Burnard (as he hasn’t been formally sworn in yet) can contact us via our email address: THIRTYMILESCORRUPTION@HOTMAIL.COM

We want to make something VERY clear to Mr. Burnard: just as your predecessor Steve Adams has done nothing so far to help his constituents in regards to the Ag Park issue, you have yet to do so either.  He may have made a statement or two about it during his campaign expressing his sympathy, but talk is cheap.  We also believe that the longer Burnard is in office, the more his views towards Ag Park will resemble Steve Adams’, because Ag Park will be major legal issue going forward and we believe his loyalty will be to the City insiders’ club, and not his Ward 7 constituents.  We hope that will not be the case, but are not overly optimistic.

As we understand, this DTSC (Department of Toxic Substances Control) letter was received by City Manager, John Russo, on June 16th at approximately 5:30 PM.  In response, Russo made the decision to initiate a “Stop Work” order as is indicated in this City News Release.

Russo thereafter contacted Public Works to officially process the, “Stop Work,” order and deliver it to developer Chuck Cox’s head engineer, Bob Beers.  To our knowledge a Councilperson doesn’t have the power or authority to issue a, “Stop Work,” order.  Soooooo…a person, who is not yet a Councilmember, and even if he was, doesn’t have the power to unilaterally halt a project, seems to want to take credit for other peoples’ hard work.  Is this an aberration or the beginning of a pattern?  Time will tell.

“Got this done?”  Got what done?  We guess if you are a supporter of John Burnard’s you just gotta love the big lug … maybe even expect more of the same, “leadership from behind,” in the near future.  Perhaps it’s just an error in judgment.  But, as we are told, if you need someone to kill bugs, he’s your man.  Some Ward 7 residents are asking, “Is he also developer Cox’s man?” since he got a campaign donation from him, and (from the top picture) is also on hugging terms with Councilman Steve Adams … who was definitely Cox’s guy.  If an exterminator know one things, it’s toxic business, so he should fit right in dealing with this mess.

burnardcoxconnection

La Sierra resident, Jim Martin, recently confronted Burnard about the campaign donation.  According to a witness, and apropos of our, “WTF? Observation of the Day”, Burnard indicated he didn’t know this was the developer Chuck Cox, but perhaps another person by the same name!    COMMENTS WELCOMED!

SEPARATED AT BIRTH?

While McDougal was certainly a step in the right direction for City of Riverside (a very low hurdle considering his two predecessors, Scott Barber and Brad Hudson, were ethically on the same level as most common criminals), we still bristle at his attempts to censor the public through disparate camera angles and removal of, “controversial,” videos from the City’s website.  You were a good soldier for your masters … just not a very American one.

Was McDougal somehow afraid or offended by a full frontal? From his past it sure doesn’t appear so … things that happen in Montclair don’t always stay in Montclair!  Until next time Lee…

WILL THIS LEGAL CLOWN FROM THE GOVERNMENT BIG TOP FINALLY BE SENT TO BIG HOUSE?

According to a newly releases internal audit targeting outside legal expenditures of former City Attorney Greg Priamos’ office, taxpayers have much to be concerned about.  TMC brought this issue to light directly to the City Council several times over the years, and in two specific stories – one in 2012 and the other followup in 2014 – only to be ignored.  However, the real purveyor of this issue was community activist, Kevin Dawson, who has been bringing this issue to the forefront of City Council for the past five years, of course, on deaf ears.

Will this finally be what will break the camel’s back as far as Priamos’ career in municipal law goes?  For many years we have been attempting, in the name of transparency, to retrieve public records, which would finally shed some light on the expenditures by the City of Riverside’s Attorney Office.  No records were ever found, or as City lingo goes, “we found no documents responsive to your request,” or the documents we requested violated the “Attorney/Client Privilege.”

We ask the question: did the City Attorney’s Office go rogue?  Didn’t anyone do a background check into Priamos? Just like, did anyone do a background check on former City Manager Brad Hudson?  Hudson was not only had a history of credit card fraud, but attempted to attain concealed weapons permit using the Riverside City Hall address as his “home address.”

Do ethics matter?  When Riverside was using Mayer Hoffmann McCann as their external auditor, Ken Al-Iman from MHM  worked as an adviser for locally-connected law firm, Best, Best & Krieger.  While MHM was doing Riverside’s books, former City Manager, Brad Hudson, hired Al-Imam’s son, Jason Al-Imam, who experienced a meteoric rise, eventually being named Controller for Riverside.

We believe ethics do matter, and make note of Mayor William Bailey’s eulogy at Hudson’s farewell party that Hudson was his, “moral compass.”  How appropriate that both these individuals have a background of, “ill repute.”  Of course we’d be remiss to leave out former Mayor Ron Loveridge from the picture, who appears to still be the puppeteer of all events of concern involving the politics of the city of Riverside.

So back to the audit: the report was grim to say the least, and the findings were what most of Riverside’s watchdogs had believed for many years.  Priamos did not: 1) follow the City’s competitive selection process for procuring outside legal counsel and 2) execute written contracts/agreements.  Written contracts/agreements insure that the taxpayers are not overcharged and also help prevent abuses such as potential conflicts of interest, failure to provide timely service and perception of favoritism/nepotism.  For example, the law firm of Roth Carney Knudsen LLP did business with the City for years.  It also happens to be law firm of now-Senator Richard Roth, the husband of Cindy Roth, who is the CEO/President of the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce, who happens to milk the City every opportunity she has.

JUNE 2015 GRAND JURY REPORT ON FORMER CITY ATTORNEY/CURRENT COUNTY COUNSEL GREG PRIAMOS’ BOORISH BEHAVIOR.   The Grand Jury panel recommended training for clown Priamos, not the other way around, as he arrogantly implied they needed.  The panel noted that Priamos has interfered with their investigations, and that he has given misleading advice to county employees.  That wasn’t groundbreaking news to TMC: Priamos had given misleading/self-serving advice to city employees and electeds here in Riverside for over a decade.

The Grand Jury has accused Priamos of 10 violations as follows, (sounds like another Bar Complaint): Conflict of Interest and Secrecy; Transparency and Accountability; Inaccurate, Incomplete and Misleading Statements; Obstruction of the Grand Jury; Choice of Having Council Violations; Violation of Board Policy C-35; Riverside County Executive Office Violation; Violation of Code of Ethics (he is incidentally writing the code of ethics book for the California League of Cities); Failure to Provide Upjohn Warning; and Superior Court Case Violations.

 2015 Grand Jury Report – Riverside County Office of County Counsel, Greg Priamos (click this link to view)

Back in 2013, former County Counsel Pamela Walls fired off a letter to Priamos, while he was City Attorney, that he violated the confidentiality of the Grand Jury in its probe into City Police Procedures.  Of course, Priamos denied the charge.  Well not so fast, the letter is part of the Grand Jury report as seen below.

Was the Grand Jury attempting to tell Priamos that there is a, “failure to communicate,” and possibly there are, “some men that just can’t be reached?”  Therefore these individuals need to be dealt with “in a proper manner”?  Gregory, there are some who say you are a sociopath, and we’d like to to extend our desire to help.  As LMU and USC graduates (just like you), you know we are practically family.  Is there anything we can do to help you get the treatment you so obviously need?

A bit of concern came forward the other day with emails from the community who were for the most part, taken back, after viewing the City Council meeting on the internet.  City-supported presenters that came forward to address the Council were filmed in a way one would normally expect, as seen below from Council Chambers on January 29, 2015.

cc   cc7   cc2   cc3

But when it came to public commentary, a funny thing happened: the camera angle was switched to view the public (many of whom are critics) from the rear of the Council Chamber.  This action sends a personal message to the community: you don’t matter.  Your voice and personification is so far away that what you have to say is not important nor worth being heard.

cc1   cc4   cc5   cc6

Not only was it so far away, but now viewers at home could only seeing the backside of the public.  Questions arose if this was a tactic by City leaders to diss or demean the public.  Just when it appears that the City is connecting better with the public, you get this.  We found that this was interim City Manager Lee McDougal’s call, and will remain so until further notice.  According to the PE, Alicia Robinson reported the following on City Manager McDougal.  “It was my order, yes,” McDougal said. “The meetings are City Council meetings … . I believe (council members) should be on camera because they should be the center of attention at the meeting and not necessarily the speakers.”  So was this all Mr. McDougal, or could he of had a little push from our Mayor?  Regardless, we’ll take from this fiasco a positive: a reminder to follow through with our New Year’s resolutions to renew our gym memberships, so our backsides are more pleasing to the audience at home.

Lets review how the past rules of decorum have been enforced at City Council meetings to see if we can establish a pattern…First, by order of former City Attorney Greg Priamos, the City arrests public speaker Karen Wright for going over the three minute rule by a few seconds, but later Mayor Bailey allows former Mayor Loveridge to go well past the three minute rule to talk about his brother.  Second, Mayor Bailey has former BB&K Attorney Letitia Pepper arrested for clapping.  Now Mayor Bailey is the brunt of her First Amendment law suit, and clapping is allowed in Council Chambers, even for those supporting critics of their government.

Now there’s an attempt to continue to intimidate, disrespect and insult the taxpayers by filming them from behind, and I must say WAAAAY behind.  But not in the City of Moreno Valley: they film you right up in your face and in HD, and live during Council, not the grainy, blurry filming Riverside uses.  So again, I ask CM McDougal if he would like to change his statement?  Just when you think that the new improved City Hall is really listening, are they really walking the walk?

STATE OF THE CITY: A PUBLIC AFFAIR OR JUST ANOTHER MONEY MAKING BOONDOGGLE FOR THE CHAMBER?  We asked the question, why should the taxpayer have to divvy out monies to subsidize non-profits?  Most non-profits raise the money for events through private sector contributions.  Therefore, we have seen this time and time again, and we wonder why are streets aren’t fixed, why are trees are not cut and why we still don’t have a City Library.

HOW YOUR UTILITY BILL SUPPORTS THE CHAMBER: FOLLOW THE MONEY.  The Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) is recognized as an Internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c)(6) organization.  Unlike a 501 (c)(3) organization, whose primary purpose is to serve a religious, charitable, scientific or educational purpose, the Chamber serves the best interest of its membership.  It’s membership consist of a select group of businesses.  Most of these businesses are customers of Riverside Public Utilities (RPU).  The current General Manager of RPU, Girish Balachandran, under Section 1202 of the City Charter, has the authorization to negotiate and execute contracts with individual retail customers for water and electric utility service.  He also has the power to offer many intangible benefits to customers.  Mr. Balachandran serves on the Board of Directors of the Chamber.

Balachandran’s predecessor, former General Manager Dave Wright, back in the salad days of giving away ratepayer money, also chose to serve on the Board of Directors of the GRCC.  As a board member, both had a duty of loyalty to the Chamber as defined under California Corporations Code Section 7231 (a): in essence, they must put their interest before that of the any other entity.  It is not infrequent that GRCC lobbies the City Council on issues affecting RPU, and endorses City Council candidates whom have jurisdiction over RPU.  This answers many questions regarding Measure A and the Soubirous Hearings.  The Chamber, we believe, was in part responsible for the Soubirous crucifixion regarding his position on Measure A.  His position would not favor GRCC’s true agenda.

The City’s Conflict of Interest Policy states that an employee may not have a personal interest which would tend to impair independence, judgement or action necessary to pursue the City’s best interest.  This tenet is codified as law under Government Code Section 1126 (b) of the the State of California.  Conflict of interest laws attempt to discourage not only biased-decision making not serving the public interest, but also the perception of such bias.

To wit, Resolution No. 22676 of the Riverside City Council, states, “the City Manager, City Attorney, and the City Clerk shall not serve as a member of the board of directors of a non-profit corporation which is receiving or will be reasonably likely in the future to seek and/or receive funding from the City of Riverside so as to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest,” thereby establishing intent of the policy.  Obviously our utility managers seem to believe the rules that apply to their boss, need not apply to them…

It has been well-known for some time that the Chamber receives taxpayer funding from the City of Riverside. What has been much less known is the amount of funding the Chamber receives directly from ratepayers, under the signature authority (i.e. no public vetting before the Board of Public Utilities or City Council) of both Mr. Balachandran and his direct subordinate, Michael Bacich, the Assistant General Manager of Customer Relations and Marketing.  These funds have been paid via the request-for-payment process that has until recently been kept hidden from the public disclosure.  Below, you will find a list of the roughly 200 payments RPU has made to the Chamber over the past 4 years in individual amounts up to $24,000.00, as well as proof of his predecessor’s participation on its Board (above figure).

So folks, could this be how the City of Riverside launders taxpayers money through a non-profit (Riverside Chamber of Commerce), then the Chamber writes a check to support campaign politicians who will feed their gravy train?   Sort of how the “Clinton Foundation” works…  What you have is that “public servants” are on these non-profit boards, but should be looking out for the best interest of the “taxpayer,” but are not, they are looking out for themselves, because, seemingly, they believe no one (the dumbass taxpayer) is looking at them.

So, is Girish Balachandran following in the footsteps of David Wright, and proving once again that in the River City there’s simply no bridge too far when it comes to conflict-of-interests as is the case with his board membership with the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce?

The bottom line was that the taxpayer paid out $11,218.50 (minimum, given Mr. Mason’s list doesn’t include a $1000 tables for both the Parks and Recreation Department and the Office of Economic (not Community) Development) for Cindy Roth’s Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce event, but we again, as the general public, had a seat in the back of the bus event.  Next time you pay your utility bill, spot a pothole, or your support is sought for better salaries and benefits by the Police or Fire unions, remember how these departments chose to donate your money to the Chamber….

HOW MUCH IS, “I OWN IT,” COSTING THE TAXPAYER?
Is it also an indirect advertising plug for that specific “I Own It” customer? … Who “incidentally” is the law firm of BB&K.   Since we own it too, can TMC also be part of that campaign? We of course have not been asked..but we patiently wait for our turn… Why?  Because, “I Own It.”  Our take is that it may not be long before RPU begins to recant with, “I Regret It.”

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?

mcdougal_11-10

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..
