Calling in the FBI to audit corrupt county government

You have all read of the political chicanery of Elizabeth “Izzy” Martin and how she is now trying to write finis to NH 2020.

Let me tell you the rest of the story.

Izzy is a bona fide member of the Sierra Business Council. As a member of the Board of Supervisors, Izzy went to the Packard Foundation and was granted $600,000, which she gave to the Sierra Business Council (this amount could be $660,000, but that is another story.)

The “Gang of Four” (this includes Izzy.) began to spend county taxpayers’ monies in support of the Sierra Business Council’s objectives in what amounts to “research” as part of NH 2020.

Actually, the Gang of Four could and should be charged with political malfeasance, which could and should lead to impeachment as per the California Government Code, Section 54950. A good lawyer might also add the precepts of Proposition 218, which makes it imperative that anytime you spend county funds for a project, you must put the matter to referendum.

What I fail to understand is, where were the county counsel and the chief executive officer when all this was going on?

The lies and deceit could go on as long as the constituency remains so apathetic. Need I remind you that I have been very vocal as to an audit on the juvenile home and I have consistently asked for audits on four departments in the county? All my efforts fall on deaf ears, so I have taken the liberty of asking the FBI to make an in-depth audit on what I consider a very corrupt county.
