City time may not be used to complete coursework

School for scoundrels

San Diego City and County Administration Building

San Diego city auditor Eduardo Luna continues to root out waste and theft at city hall, according to his latest quarterly fraud hotline report issued in January.

“An allegation regarding theft of time related to an employee completing college coursework on City time was investigated and found to be substantiated,” says the document. “Due to confusion regarding the City’s policy, supervisors were reminded of the City’s Administrative Regulation 70.30, which states that City time may not be used to complete coursework.”


Republican state senator Joel Anderson, already lined up to run to replace termed-out county supervisor Dianne Jacob in 2020, has amassed a campaign war chest of $290,452, per his latest financial disclosure, covering 2017 and filed January 29. Now, however, he has just declared his intention to run for the state Board of Equalization, giving him two possible paths for political advancement.

Builders came up with a good chunk of the most recent money, including $800 contributions each from Yehudi and Pam Gaffen and Gregg, Debra, Jeffrey, and Marsha Hamann. Homebuilder Daryl Priest also came up with $800; Wayne Breise and Carole Paton of San Diego Aircraft gave a total of $350. The firm is based at county-owned Gillespie Field, in the midst of expansion controversies with neighboring residents.

County. The photo shows the county building. City administration is 202 C Street.

SWELL: You are correct the photo in the article is the building for the COUNTY Administration Center. But historically the building was once known as the photo caption in the article indicates.

This is from Wikipedia...”The San Diego County Administration Center is a historic Beaux-Arts/Spanish Revival-style building in San Diego, California. It houses the offices of the Government of San Diego County. It was completed in 1938 and was primarily funded by the Works Progress Administration. It was previously known as the San Diego Civic Center and as the City and County Administration Building. Because of its notable architecture and its location fronting San Diego Bay, it is nicknamed the Jewel on the Bay.[1] Architects were Samuel Wood Hamill, William Templeton Johnson, Richard Requa and Louis John Gill. The building used innovative construction techniques to guard against earthquakes, and the project was considered to be "a prototype of American civic center architecture".[1][2] The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 16, 1988.[4]”

Employees will do what they are told to do. It is the supervisors and administrators that insure that the employees are doing the work that they were hired to do. The problem with government is that supervisors and administrators are not held responsible for their failure to their jobs as administrators and supervisors.

AMEN to that brother. It seems once promoted to a supervisory position or higher, employees become all but untouchable. I believe the reason is second level supervisors don’t want to be bothered with documenting their subordinates shortcomings. This is ESPECIALLY true if the 2nd level supervisor had a say in their subordinates’ promotion in the first place i.e. it reflects badly on them. Thus they get away with almost anything.

I guess those employees and their supervisors just figured if the city pays for taking educational classes they should pay me to sit at my desk and do my homework. While the city regulate which classes it’s willing to pay for, as a reminder maybe the city should send a copy of its Administrative Regulation 70.30 to any employee and their supervisor with every education reimbursement approval form.
