Every single member of Monterey County's 5 board seats on the BOS are voting on Cannabis related matters - none have recused because of conflicts of interest.

@supervisoraskew's colleague @SupervisorLopez is currently paying well connected pol consultant Plasha Will for services

The @FBI must dig deep into Monterey County Cannabis because this board is giving away services and bending over backwards to accommodate the sector while failing to insure the public isn't footing the tab for businessmen like convicted cocaine trafficker Mike Hackett's cash


Hackett's straw CEO of Riverview, his daughter Michelle Hackett, spoke during public comment at the beginning of the presentation. Every speaker but one was an industry lobbyist or operator.

The head of the cannabis program said that they are working county employees

70 to 80 hours per week "because of employee dedication" to accommodate industry demands of them.

(Way to look out for employees safe work life)

During the presentation, which is still going on, @supervisoraskew asked a garbled question about staff works loads and received

a garbled response from the county employee running the program.

@AdamsSupervisor recently posted 📸 of herself at a lobbying party with Plasha Will's lobbying arranged group the MCCIA with #Salinas mayor Kimbley Craig. Problematic for the public and reeks of insiderism. Image

Let's be clear about what is in our District Attorney's hands and we can all wonder why @JeanninePacioni has not reached out to me personally, knowing what I've accomplished (and her office blew) with low level scumbags like Joey Banuelos et al.

Mike Richards "paramour"

purchases a house owned by Dave Drew with Dave Drew acting as the bank in 2013.

Mike Richards paramour (and her ex husband) sell the house in Salinas for over $100,000 profit.

Mike Richards was running for Sheriff when this occurred (@TinaForSheriff).

Mike Richards paramour was living in a house in Spreckels and did not move into the house, at 48 Harvest St in Salinas.

During this entire period Richards and the woman were in a relationship.

Crickets from local law enforcement.

That's a great way to launder money to a

Meet Gonzalo Fernandez @supervisoraskew. Now @VoicesofBay reporter @Calkins_Royal asked me to look into this scumbag - then he started getting what he described as death threats. Prior to he said fired and prosecuted (but rehired) cmdr. Joey Banuelos created a report re/ 👇 and Image

that the report was created only after Calkins asked for a copy, MCSO claimed there was none, Calkins said "ask Banuelos about it" and suddenly a report appeared.

So @MCoSheriff are acting like cops from Tijuana now? On the take and corrupt?

Calkins also said this dude

is "very scary" and has "Cartel" connections.

Would you are @SupervisorLopez, or @AdamsSupervisor like to elaborate?

On a separate note, Calkins said Mike Hackett, the cocaine trafficker you are proposing to give a gift of public funds to, knew about the bribes being paid

🧵 "Soxie" Silacci. It's not a coincidence that he ended up buying Bobby Franscioni's house when he went to prison for guns (Bobby was a narco). Nor is it a coincidence that the property he and fam own at S Main and Winham houses Mike Bitar, Kaz Ajir enterprises @JeanninePacioni Image

It's not a coincidence that Soxie is forever in the DEA NADDIS database or that his partner "the chemist" was murdered by Soxie's house in the hills of Santa Cruz. (unsolved) @JeanninePacioni ImageImageImage

It's not a coincidence that Soxie and his Monterey "Mafia" friends were headed down to Latin America when Sal Palma's son was thrown in a Latin America prison (they got him out) or that Silacci was stopped at the Monterey Airport with a sawed off shotgun in his luggage, then

KSBW is going to run a propaganda piece prominently featuring Plasha Will's MCCIA stooge Bob Roach as Cannabis interests like cocaine trafficker Mike Hackett (who has a briefcase with $750,000 in cash when he was arrested in 2017h of Riverview Farms begging for quid pro quo. Image

This is Felix dining with Mike Hackett while Hackett was violating his felony probation in 2020.

Ethics in MoCo journalism?

Nah. ImageImage

... the guy who shitcanned a ten pg. complaint to re/ ⁦@CASenCaballero⁩ corruption in #Salinas

"He was appointed by President George W. Bush to be the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of California in 2002, where he replaced Robert Mueller" sfchronicle.com/bayarea/articl…

Oh look a Panetta guy:

"Ryan, who works as a defense attorney focused on white-collar crime, corporate investigations and commercial litigation, began his legal career in 1985 working as a prosecutor in the Alameda County"

Alameda County is where Jimmy Panetta interned and later worked as a prosecutor and where Jimmy met his wife who got two judgeships from @JerryBrownGov.
