Mayor Bailey’s Moral Compass…Former Riverside City Manager Brad Hudson

The Sacramento Bee reported on December 18th, 2015 that CEO Brad Hudson is leaving the County of Sacramento, in his predictable style of departure. DRAMATIC….. Hudson was also former City of Riverside’s City Manager. He left the taxpayer with paying for compulsive purchases such as a white noise contraption, a $600 personal shoe shine machine and paying daily for his outside purchases of coffee. He was totally responsible for leaving the Citizens of Riverside with an unsustainable debt that the taxpayers will continue to carry for decades.

Reading between the lines of the Sac Bee article what we have another scenario that we had in the City of Riverside, but no one admitted to it, “Leave or be Fired.”  First, he still had 8 months remaining on his contract and the rumors that were circulating was that his contract would not be renewed.  Multiple closed door meetings to discuss his performance evaluation during this year possible didn’t turn out well.  Hudson, in his dramatic style as to “control the message,’ also appeared to intentionally keep one of the Supervisors, Phil Serna, from commenting on the Press Release.  While only one Supervisor, Susan Peters, was allowed to comment on the great work Hudson was doing…

The Sac Bee reported the following December 21, 2015:  Selected after a secretive process, Hudson came to Sacramento County in 2011 after two decades as an administrator in Riverside County. He immediately raised eyebrows with a $21,000 refurnishing of his office, including a $78 shoe polisher – a tone-deaf move when the county was still in a budget crunch.

VIVIAN MORENO’S COMMENTS TO SACRAMENTO BEE ARTICLE:

We tried to warn all of you about him but you wouldn’t listen. He has a way of communicating what you want to hear. This is his style of departure. I’m sure Supervisor Susan peters believed his BS. She probably collaborated very closely with him! The saying in Riverside under the Brad Hudson Reign was SLEEP WITH YOU BOSS GET A PROMOTION. It never was about the citizens of Riverside or the Citizens of the County of Sacramento it was always about BRAD and the perception of the office of City Manager or CEO. He always had to have the best regardless of the state of affairs of the city or county of which he worked. He saw the writing on the wall the County of Sacramento is probably in deep financial trouble and doesn’t want his name associated with it.  It wouldn’t look good on his resume.

He was the driving force behind the Renaissance program in Riverside, that we cannot pay for.  Brad Hudson put The City of Riverside in an enormous amount of debt that we will NEVER be able to recover from.  He was reckless and arrogant and had to gold plat his office here as well.  One of the most incredible moments of his departure from Riverside was when our current Mayor Rusty Bailey stated Brad Hudson was his MORAL COMPASS.  That speaks volumes as to the government style of our Mayor.

Let’s look at the bright side now the staff no longer has to deal with him any more they are all probably jumping for joy. Except the ones that he fired for not doing his dirty work. He used the intimidation-retaliation form of governing.  Be glad he’s gone!  To bad for the new employees in Orange County maybe they will read this article or thirty miles of corruption and start looking for another job.
