Anon and Mike, you want to see some abuse of tax dollars, take a look at the Peralta college study and what they spent on our dime. Forget the public safety groups, imagine all the waste that goes on elsewhere in goverment, and people wonder why cities, counties, and states are hurting, its not the police unions, okay maybe the abusive fire unions like oakland for example, but imagine all the agencies acting like this lamo college district. You know this is why the state colleges cost so much, because they waste all the money

What a find, Jim, thanks. I'm bowled over and speechless. Peralta CC is apparently a sinkhole that eats taxpayer money.

Unbelievable stuff.

I am still upset about it today. I don't even go out and eat $50 steak dinners, what makes them think they can do it and our expense. Crazy, charges should be filed for misuse of public funds

These things are disturbing Jim, and part of a widespread lack of accountability and oversight. I'm glad the grand jury has taken on these important tasks.

We had some similar incidents like this with the Livermore school board and Bob Bronzan _ i think public funds were abused and that they basically swept it under the rug. If a grand jury had been involved instead of the local police agency perhaps the outcome would have been different.

Just an update. Bronzan is retired, milking the pension system for well over 190K/year. This is the guy who was buying personal items with taxpayer money while he was employed.

Mad yet?

Alameda County public safety employees are not paying anything into their retirement.

Don't you wish your employer was putting 90K a year into YOUR 401K?
