Potter is an elected official who has access to millions of dollars - but as the @MontereyHerald reported - when @JoeLivernois & @Calkins_Royal were in charge - he wasn’t a great businessman.

But LH set up a trust to help him get his Casa in the CCBTS. Easy.


Now his job, when he isn’t performing his duties as Mayor of #Carmel, is lobbying for the billion dollar #marijuana business.

Convenient. Friends in #high places.

@mcgreevy99 has written extensively (@latimes) about the 420 industry and allegations of #publiccorruption

in #LosAngeles and #SantaBarbara county.

We know the County of San Luis Obispo was just raided under the authority of a sealed federal search warrant investigation (*reported* by @CalCoastNews )looking into #paytoplay - involving their elected board of supervisors - in

that county.

@SalinasPD former police chief quit after only four years to work for ... the #marijuana industry and #Indus Holdings.

Gavin Kogan was with Indus and is now with #GrupoSalinas #GrupoFlor and Mike Bitar’s #EastofEden #Cannabis Company.

#PlashaWill - counsel

to @RepJimmyPanetta & #SalinasValleyLeadershipGroup (rumored to be under #FBI investigation by @mcweekly and @maryrduan) and recently - as @BurgermeisterM3 pointed out - purchased a multi-million dollar home from an Uber Rich donor and *sister to the woman running

the @MontereyAq, @juliepackard.

Casa Sorrento’s ‘Pizza Man’ Mike Hackett was arrested by San Benito County law enforcement (2017) for transporting / furnishing cocaine. According the a 6th District Court of Appeal record - Hackett was caught on a federal wiretap admitting

to the illegal activity. According to the appellate record, Hackett was going to plead not guilty and his attorney Brian Worthington was good with that until he learned the real story.

In walked Jennifer Rosenthal Iverson (a #marijuana industry attorney / insider)

to handle Hackett’s new ‘no contest’ plea. Hackett later appealed - and lost.

Why is Hackett important? Mike Hackett is a major player in the local #MontereyCounty #marijuana scene. He transferred control of his business over to his wife and adult daughters - but

Hackett is reportedly an active participant in that business / #RiverviewFarms.

Hackett appears to be running his main money making enterprise - a pizza 🍕 joint within the @CityofSalinas , however according to public records Hackett put that business in another man’s name.
