#YYJPoli Guess who said it?
"If I was a citizen...I would be unsettled"
(cheat sheet: ref:@Adam_Stirling Hr1; this am; approx 11 mins in)
#IfIWasACitizen sums up the patronizing attitude we must rid #YYJ of. Pls don't vote4 any #CityFamily candidate…
2/ "I was speaking as the head of the #CityFamily "
Am I the only one who thinks it's beyond weird (and ultra colonial speak/action) that the elected #YYJ city mayor/councillors; decide which indigenous ppl get invited to #CityFamily? (and speak on their behalf?) #reconciliation
3/ "I am the Family head.. absolutely"
"wow wow wow wow" #YYJPoli #CityFamily
"I was representing the will of the family"

This silver spooner has been dropping my name with @MCoSheriff.

Let's clear this up, Jimmy, I'm here operating in complete transparency:

• two and a half decades of working successfully against local corruption - quietly
• political adviser to Judge Kay Kingsley (ret.)

• assisted Tom Wills in becoming a Superior Court Judge.

• filed the only CJP complaint against J. Mike Fields for taking money from Tony Lombardo (your friend) resulting in his forced retirement

• successfully ran Scott Miller for Sheriff 2010/ 2014 lost to Bernal

@RepJimmyPanetta, your name was thrown into the #cannabis for cash MoCo scandal, involving an FBI investigation by @Calkins_Royal and @VoicesofBay.

It involves your relationship with Mike Bitar and Mike Hackett, convicted felons and the hundreds of thousand paid to Plasha.

You left out a lot of people.

... Ben Swig for instance.
“In the early to mid-’70s, [real estate developer] Ben Swig, Chief Justice Earl Warren, and former California Governor Pat Brown, among others, owned Cannery Row and at that time they wanted to get rid of it,” Balestreri says.

“The Coastal Commission was being formed and things were getting tougher and tougher to develop. I went up to see Swig who owned huge hotels in San Francisco.…

🧵A November strategy is @TinaForSheriff allowing Justin Patterson supporters to approach campaign for Sheriff. Getting Fred Garcia to support Scott Miller helped seal Mike Kanalakis' fate. The supporters of Patterson have repeatedly called out Bernal/Moses corruption so

supporting Chief Nieto, an, outsider with a terrific record with @LAPDHQ, with all those positive relationships with good cops, would be a huge plus to curing the insular and corrupt world of MoCo politics. We need a serious effort to root out corruption the way LA handles it

and there is no love between Los Angeles politicos and the #CityFamily in San Francisco.

Los Angeles takes public corruption far more seriously than the US Attoney's office in SF because it's stacked with oddball insiders like Annemarie Conroy.

Monterey Co has never had

Two races are going to go to November in #MontereyCounty. The Sheriff's race and the D2 County Supervisor Race.

A number of people are making money and enabling to corrupt/sleazy candidates - Joe Moses and Kimbley Craig. They are functionaries of the Panetta machine. I gave

Leon Panetta a lot of wiggle room over the years as he slowly revealed that he isn't into Monterey County politics for the greater good. Leon is into MoCo for the benefit of a select few and those interests reach DC and, unfortunately, beyond.

Moses and Craig are

obviously benefactors of the Panetta net. Look at their donors - it's the same people every time. The same people who backed Steve Bernal - a 12 year deputy with an apple pie look. He even plays guitar on the weekends. Dennis Donohue, in his sordid run to unseat Jane Parker.

.@DemetrioStark - I'll go into my archived files and pull Kehoe's financials. They were completely fake. The @CityofSalinas got into bed with Kehoe, willingly. That was a direct result of @CASenCaballero's politics and a sleazy city manager named Dave Mora. They did it at our exp

There was a utility tax repeal on the ballot and #Salinas wanted good press for that and other more dark consideration. The story was never fully explored by our paid press and part of what Livernois referred to in his 2006 email to me was me pushing to get coverage on

the Caballero angle including a criminal complaint I wrote and submitted to the US Attorney in San Francisco at the time - Kevin Ryan a #CityFamily insider and @GavinNewsom lackey. I was told the complaint died because of shifting priorities, Iraq, terror focus. Clearly

Annemarie Conroy, Georgina Mendoza's buddy - a gatekeeper in the @USAO_NDCA office currently and hyper-political. Would Conroy brick wall am investigation into public corruption involving @RepJimmyPanetta?

I certainly hope not but in 2022, anything is possible.

@chief_filice Image

A solid member is the #CityFamily Conroy was a SF Board of Supervisors member and has overlap with @GavinNewsom who wants to be President one day.

Conroy went through the same Panetta influenced "Homeland Security" program at @NPS_Monterey as Salinas Mayor Kim Craig. 🤔 Image

How would [SF] voters react if they learned Conroy's party affiliation? The [supe]had wisely downplayed her GOP membership and successfully wooed Democrats, particularly women. The Bush poll showed that Conroy would lose thousands of votes if she were tagged a Republican.
