Good work @downinmonterey. Helen Kingsley was my grandmother who passed away in 1992 in a car accident. She was only 68 at the time. My grandmother was a fine community member and Dave Mora and the city council named a wing at the community center after her.

She got things done.

Ted Thau was a wonderful man and lawyer. He lived around the corner from my grandmother on Amherst Dr. near my grandmothers San Vincente home in S. Salinas. My grandmother's home was a frequent gathering spot for the civic minded and I was there often. My mother was my

grandmother's right hand and spent a lot of time with Richard, Ted and Helen discussing the $100,000 (a lot of money to raise for #Salinas back then).

My grandmother has a way of getting things done for the benefit of our wonderful community of #Salinas and she inspired me.

I have wonderful memories from that period of time, when my grandmother was living and your piece is one of those reminders of a time when community worked well together and there was a lot less partisanship in politics - believe it or not.

Because I ran Scott Miller for Sheriff in 2010 and 2014. No one in Monterey Co. understands the corruption within the @MCoSheriff department better than I do.

Cleaning up the Sheriff's dept. was a platform priority I designed the department and Scott Miller.

I'm concerned whomever is advising her is sticking her camoaign with some real dirt bags.

She lists Cmdr. Mike Richards and Joey Banuelos as endorsers. That's strange to be because I had

Ladies and gentlemen and madame District Attorney @JeanninePacioni, I am proud to report that Jeff Woods has blocked @knowledge1422 and a pseudonym account I have for politics on Facebook. Apparently Jeff took issue with the truth about his buddy - ret. narc Archie Warren. Image

Last I remember Jeff Woods made 80 youtube videos solely on Sheriff Scott Miller and his family.

He wasn't acting alone. Woods was encouraged to create many works of fiction at the behest of - fired cmdr. Mike Richards, Archie Warren and a couple other mischievous types. Image

... hit piece

Same press that is unable to figure out that @CASenCaballero is the sort of elected who IS a scammer and fraudster.

@CASenCaballero donors were given millions in loans at very favorable terms and loose lending standards (fund like tens of millions)

• Partners for Peace, a non profit that paid Caballero $100,000 in ED salary not including benefits when total 501(c)3 income

• PFP total income was under $350,000 per year and only because of a $1,000,000 grant from the Packard Foundation

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.

... it happens incrementally.

@AldenCapital did it to the @MontereyHerald and @Gannett did it to @salnews.

The "left" @mcweekly endorses Trump loving locals like @PhillipsForSupe & @CityofSalinas Mayor @kimbleycraig.

@LeonPanetta12 works for a Trump billionaire. @cmarinucci
