"a pattern of inappropriate fiscal maneuvering," said the pot to the kettle.
Where was city managements concern for the school district when they were approving the Minton's project?
Oh, that's right, they didn't have any concern, because they were the ones doing the raiding there. I guess it's really just a question of who's ox is getting gored.
The City raided nothing when they approved the Minton's project. You have no idea what you're talking about.
Everyone raids the tax payers' bank accounts. California = Greece i.e. a bankcrupt wellfare state for public workers.
Sorry Stever, the item on the state budget that just keeps growing and eclipses all but education is corrections. Not public worker pensions.
Unfortunately they all seem to have their hands in the cookie jar one way or another (just like the old time racoon trap, when the racoon would not let go of its prize; not even to save its life) once they've reached in and have hold of that rather large cookie inside, they're unwilling to let go of it and free themselves from the very narrow hole they so boldly reach into.
It's just that in this case the States' legal team is "better". Especially when the billable hours spent on the case is more likely to be paid in full if there is State, County, and City funds from which to draw payment against.
I'm sure even if MV had won, a big chunk of that "additional school funding" would have been used to pay the legal team who fought and won the battle for the cookie worth millions.
In the end only some crumbs will be left for those whose real need and noble cause was the rallying point in which all this exciting drama and shameless waste of time, money, and potential was set in motion
At least there is a winner in this battle. Sadly, it is the lawyers.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
