Restrictions on Government Officials and Employees
Overview of Post-Employment Restrictions
The Political Reform Act places three restrictions on the activities of public officials who are leaving government employment. Two are post-employment, while the third regulates activities of an official before leaving.
One-Year Ban: Gov. Code Section 87406 restricts former state officials, for one year after leaving state service, from being paid to communicate with their former agency in an attempt to influence agency decisions that involve the making of general rules (such as regulations or legislation), or to influence a permit, license, contract, or transaction involving property or goods. (Note: The Act also places a one-year restriction on the activities of members of certain air pollution control districts.)
Lifetime Ban: Gov. Code Sections 87400-87405 prohibit former state officials from being paid to appear in a proceeding involving specific parties (e.g., a lawsuit, administrative law judge hearing, or a state contract) in which the official participated.
Prospective Employers: Gov. Code Section 87407 prohibits state and local public officials from making, participating in, or influencing a governmental decision that directly relates to a prospective employer.

Have a great New Year!
And the hits keep coming. Is there no way we can have a say as citizens of this once great city? Seriously there has to be better choices.
All you whiners out there - if you're so concerned about preserving your democratic rights as a Mtn. View resident you're welcome to run for city council (and possibly eventually become Mayor) yourself. It's been said that countries (or in this case cities) end of with the type of government they deserve. Having lived in many cities (both large and small) I feel that Mtn. View is reasonably well run.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
