Auditor, ethics director back plan to purge emails

The IBA, Financial staff, the City Attorney and all who signed the Purge are also in collusion with regards to the plundering of the $908 million in Successor Agency assets for the benefit of the City's and County's General Funds, instead of justice for the poor. There is also ongoing manipulation of the City Council as it related to Civic San Diego and their unfunded $20.4 Million in Administrative costs from our General Fund Reserves that they all agreed to erased and write off in the FY-2013 CAFR as part of the total $211 Million Write Off based on bad legal advice by the City Attorney. Just last month on February 10, 2014 as Item S404 ROPS-6, due to purposeful misdirection by staff, the City Council approved another $4,073,823 in unfunded Administration costs for 6 months of Civic San Diego staff and unknown outside consultants.

City of San Diego to purge year-old emails

Shady. San Diegans for Open Government (SDOG) have four outstanding lawsuits regarding Public Records Act request for City Attorney Jan Goldsmith's private Yahoo email and Todd Gloria email and Social Media accounts discussing City of San Diego business going back years. Plus Brown Act Violations with the State and County of San Diego. Hopefully our new Strong Mayor Faulconer will stop his charade on Monday March 3, 2013 after the 10 am Mayoral Swearing In Ceremony at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation. Back in the day, former Centre City Development Corporation (CCDC) President for the former Redevelopment Agency (RDA) stated they could not put the required legal backup documentations online for complex Redevelopment Agenda Items and deals because "the internet is not big enough" and "our file are too large to download." What exactly are the assumed cost savings?

San Diego IS that Corrupt. They steal from starving children, Veterans, and Seniors. Please analyze our no-cost solutions to ending Homelessness using the $908 million in former Redevelopment Agency assets that are being siphoned off to the direct benefit of the City's and County's General Funds instead of the San Diego Regional Continuum of Care Council (RCCC). The City AND County of San Diego are in violation of the Federal Fair Housing and HEARTH Act based upon their failure to identify funding to end Veterans and Chronic Homeless by 2015, and ALL Homeless including Children by 2020. The only current goal is to End Homelessness in downtown-only by 2016, and closing both tents until December 2014 if money is found. The San Diego Regional Continuum of Care and all Non-Profit and Faith Based Community members are being suckered by Civic San Diego, and City of San Diego staff and officials. So far purposeful sabotage includes the $13 million Housing Due Diligence Report (DDR) Payment, the $167 Non-Housing Other Assets DDR Payment, the "erasing" and "writing off" of $231.1 Million in Successor Agency (SA) debt to a Net Zero Value in the FY-2013 CAFR, and pretending that Civic San Diego is broke. Hopefully the Media will look into this important financial and social justice matter. Instead of being liquidated for the benefit of the City AND County General Funds, the full $908 million in Successor Agency (SA) assets needs to be independently audited. See Pages 20 to 22 for the September 10, 2010 Joint Memorandum from then-City Council Members Carl DeMaio and Donna Frye asking Mayor Sanders and the City Council to direct the City Auditor Edwardo Luna to investigate the annual $18 million in Tax Sharing Payments from the Successor Agency (SA) to the County of San Diego in accordance with the 1992 Agreement for Cooperation that was never enforced. The Audits of the annual $18 million in Tax Sharing Payments were squashed by former Mayor Jerry Sanders.

You are forgetting that former Mayor Filner negotiated the 5-Year Pensionable Pay Freeze by himself. The City Unions were not happy with their investment. You are forgetting about the $909 million in Successor Agency (SA) to the former CCDC Redevelopment Agency (RDA) Assets that are still being hidden from the City Council and the public. If the status quo remains, the almost $1 Billion in public money belonging to the poor and homeless will be split with 79% to the County's General Fund, and 21% to the City's General Fund. On November 17, 2013 the City Council as the Successor Agency (SA) approved a $167 million check to the County Auditor Controller. The amount could easily have been zero instead.

Of course. The Veterans and Winter tents only need $686,686 to keep the Tents opened until the end of the Fiscal Year on July 1, 2014. All that is needed is a Strong Mayor who will stand up to City Council President Todd Gloria, who is a big Civic San Diego, IBA, and City Attorney Goldsmith supporter. Yes. There is money siting in the bank that can solve the Homeless problem. For the Veterans tent, Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins has put State Proposition 41 on the June 3, 2014 Ballot that will allow $600 Million in cash siting in the bank to be used for Veterans Homeless, Transitional Housing, and low income rental housing instead of Veterans Home Ownership. The Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Bond Act has no detractors, and can fund Homeless Veterans Tents year round for at least the next 10 years. For the Downtown Tent, if Councilman Alvarez becomes Mayor he would likely want to Tent near Barrio Logan to close. This would be a great reason to allow the Homeless to live in the old downtown Library instead. Win-Win-Win. "Proposition 41. AB 639. Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Bond Act of 2014: Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Act of 2014. (Chapter 727, 2013) This bill would amend the Veterans’ Bond Act of 2008 to reduce the amount of bonds that are authorized to be issued under the act from $900,000,000 to $300,000,000. The bill would enact the Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Bond Act of 2014 (the bond act) to authorize the issuance of bonds in the amount of $600,000,000, as specified, for expenditure by the California Housing Finance Agency, the Department of Housing and Community Development, and the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide multifamily housing to veterans pursuant to the Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Act of 2014 (VHHPA), also enacted by the bill. The bill would authorize the Legislature to amend the provisions of the bond act, by majority vote, for specified purposes. The bill would impose a specified reporting requirement on the Department of Housing and Community Development to evaluate, in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs, any program established by the former pursuant to the VHHPA. The bill would authorize the Department of Housing and Community Development to provide specified assistance to veterans."

The Homeless and poor have been systematically abused by both City and County government officials. There is over $9.7 million that could go directly to Homeless tomorrow with City Council approval. However, Civic San Diego, IBA, the City Attorney, and financial staff state there are no funding solutions and the homeless are screwed. The solution is to use the $7.8 Million in inter-agency Loan repayments in accordance with State law. By moving the $7.8 million in Loan Repayments into the Low and Moderate Income Housing Asset Fund (LMIHAF). Beside the short term solution, there is still @ $500 Million in Successor Agency (SA) assets that are still being hidden from the City Council and public.
