Today, December 03, Assistant City Manager Belinda Graham gave her two weeks notice to leave her position.  She rose up the ranks and was part of the legacy of former City Manager Brad Hudson, there was no one in the history of Riverside who moved up faster then Ms. Graham.  Some say she did her best work horizontally as opposed to vertically.  She was instrumental in the destruction of so many lives, careers and businesses.  She has cost the taxpayers of Riverside hundreds of millions of dollars by the incompetent decisions she had made.  Currently, many sources have said that Council has no confidence in her ability and would not consider her as a contender for the upcoming City Manager vacancy.  Therefore, today’s decision is not a surprise.

One the many issues which came to the forefront was Pellisier Ranch, and her part in this illegal transaction.  Originally the Pellisier Ranch property was purchased by the Riverside Utility for water rights years ago.  Former City Manager Brad Hudson worked a deal to sell the majority of the property to an industrial developer friend, Majestic Realty.  The problem was the City, or the Utility, could not sell this public property without going through the public bidding process, so Hudson and Graham (then the Development Director) decided to transfer the property to the RDA (Redevelopment Agency), which has the power to sell the property directly to a purchaser without going through a public bidding process.  Sources told us that Hudson had already negotiated a price.  The negotiated price was way to low based on comparable surrounding real estate values.  This of course, was brought to the attention of Ms. Graham.  Ms. Graham was also advised that the transfer/transaction was not legal, since RDA are not allowed to purchase property outside the City Limits (which was actually Colton) of their own jurisdiction.  Belinda had already done a similar transaction with Utility land adjacent to Fairmount Park outside the City Limits.  We were told that Ms. Graham did not like the fact that the source knew this information.  In the end, the sale to Hudson’s industrial developer friend did not go through.

Under the leadership of Belinda Graham and Brad Hudson, the City of Riverside will never be able to recover.  From this disaster, we get another, Scott Barber, a total train wreck.

Didn’t make the cut for City Manager in Puyallup, WA, so now she is retiring? (Click Image to Enlarge)  So it appears the total count is two. Graham attempted to apply for City Manager in two cities Bellevue, WA April 2014 and Puyallup, WA in November 2014.

Belinda Graham in deep thought on how to screw the taxpayer….

RIVERSIDE POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION HONORING DISGRACED CITY MANAGER SCOTT BARBER DECEMBER 14, 2014.

It’s true, the Riverside Police Officers Association is holding a special breakfast program at the Mission Inn in celebration of City Manager Scott Barber’s retirement.  Why? you may ask would RPOA promote and plan an event such as this?  Could it be that RPOA President Brian Smith and Vice President Aurelio Melendrez (son of Councilman Andy Melendrez) would like to acknowledge his support and effort in attempting taking down a councilmember for the team, which ultimately backfired, and resulted in a shameful departure.

Incidentally, the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce decided to get into the act along with RPOA to support this effort.  The conspiracy continues as to the real nexus between Cindy Roth’s Greater Riverside Chamber, RPOA President Brian Smith and the Riverside Office of the City Manager.

Back in 2010, Scott Barber approved a $2.5 million change order for the Fox Performance Plaza, without City Council Approval!  This violates every policy and procedure that the City Manager should abide by.  This my friends, is where City Manager Scott Barber should have been FIRED!  This is where is clearly over stepped his bounds as City Manager and his ethical integrity, but went ahead and did it anyway.  Either he was unknowledgable of City rules or all together simply unqualified to understand the severity of the overall picture.  So when City Council members continue to ignore it, they are in denial, this my taxpayer friends is the cusp of the problem!  We ask the question, “What was Barber’s M.O. in doing this?”  Was it for personal gain?  It didn’t benefit anyone on the City Council, and it certainly did not benefit the Taxpayer.  Was City Manager Scott Barber receiving kick-backs from the developers?

We therefore ask, before the door hits the backside on his way out, that City Manager Scott Barber pay back the taxpayers for utilizing our monies inappropriately.

SB200K

We know it is only $100,000.00 that Barber misappropriated with the support of RPOA President Brian Smith and Chief Sergio Diaz, but we believe the damage that they caused only supports $200,000.00.  Smith and Diaz, you can chip in any way you wish to help out Mr. Barber, maybe Cindy Roth and the Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce can hold a fundraiser to help out.

We got a wise guy, ahh forget about it.  You’re a funny guy. How am I funny? Funny how? (what do you mean I’m a funny guy?) You look like a clown (do you mean I’m funny like a clown?).  You F##k, you weren’t suppose to be in my area!  Thought I was watching a scene from “Goodfellas” with Joe Pesci, Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta, but no, this was believe it or not, Mission Inn Security…  This all took place November 30th, during an Occupy Riverside March during the Festival of Lights event in front of the Mission Inn, and all caught on tape by courtesy of John Dingler.

Mission Inn Security A. Appello, stated to the cameraman that he was not authorized to film here, though it was a public sidewalk.  He was also told not he did not give him permission to film himself, a private citizen, though in reality, was under the employment of the Mission Inn.  He was so annoyed, that A. Appello evidently called RPD or his capo di tutti capi (boss of all bosses) which at the Mission Inn would be non other than Duane Roberts, or some now mentioned his wife Kelly Robert is now running the inn.  Mission inn security states that the photographer did not have his permission to film him, though he was on public property.  People have told me the Mission Inn was a tad bit on the pretentious side, but maybe stating a citizen could not film on public property would appear to be a bit to much. Peter Demian, Mission Inn Security, stated he would press charges personally, then suddenly blurted out, “Touch Me, Go Ahead, Touch Me”!  and then gets closer to the cameraman with his face in front of the camera, as if he expected John to do something….as indicated in his video coverage.  Peter Demian, Mission Inn Security, stated that RPD will confiscate his camera and film, and that he will be personally filing charges, and that he was going to jail that night.   He then continued to follow and intimidate the cameraman by remaining very close.  He continued to follow him away from the Mission Inn jurisdiction, and continued to taunt, that he will take his name tag off and now be a citizen, which meant?  Not sure.  But he later did, and showed it to the cameraman, John Dingler.  Then he continued to insult.  Mission Inn Security Peter Demian, calls John a “Loser”, “To get a Life” and the incomparable, “You look like a clown”.  So, according to Mission Inn security it is against the law to film any private citizen on public property without their permission.  But no one else filming there within the public arena of the Mission Inn was told the same, or had threats that their camera and film would be confiscated…

But TMC did their own investigation regarding filming in public places.  According to the Legal Handbook for Photographers, says, “The general rule is that if something is in a public place, you’re entitled to photograph it.”

As a side note, doesn’t the taxpayer subsidize some elements of the Mission Inn?  The answer is, yes…  Nice, Mission Inn, on the happiest time of the year… and at the same time I’m hearing “he’s making a list, and he’s checking it twice, gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.. Well…you know the rest….”  Merry Christmas to All…From the TMC Staff …

UPDATE: COMMENTER ON THE JOHN DINGLER REPORT: Peter Damian is no longer employed by the Mission Inn, he is in prison. He stole over 4,000 dollars. He was part of a rushed hiring process that fired very well qualified staff (some had been with the company for over 20 years) and replaced them with incompetent, power hungry, tyrannical, and offensive people with no experience. Diana Rosure with the backing of Kelly Roberts led the cleansing with a fake smile and sharp guillotine. If the Mission Inn crumbles to the ground, these people are to blame.                           – Fmilleriazation
