Normally this is the quiet time of year spent on year in reviews and odd commentaries. However, late last week the county reached agreement with infamous developer Tsakopoulos on a water and the city quickly followed suit, with a special meeting set for December 21 when most people would be on vacation to approve an agreement with the infamous developer on summer water rights.
It all started Sunday with a call from Councilmember Joe Krovoza about meeting on Monday night.
"Note: Stephen Souza and Joe Krovoza have arranged a public Q&A session for Monday evening, December 20 at 7:00 pm in the Davis Council Chamber. The gathering will focus on the pending Woodland-Davis water rights purchase and the water supply project aspects of the proposed agreement. This Q&A session seeks to inform the public and address concerns preceding the meetings that will formally consider the agreements on Tuesday, December 21, of the Woodland- Davis Clean Water Agency (4:00 pm, Woodland City Council Chambers), and the Davis City Council (6:30 pm, Davis Council Chambers). Council members Souza and Krovoza invite all interested parties to attend."

For their guest commentary click here Monday: Water: What's the Hurry?
"This is normally the time of year I am scrambling to find new stories and spending most of my time resting and writing up a few year-in-reviews to fill space and bide my time until January when the world restarts.
But that is not the case this year, as last week we suddenly learned that the water process which had been moving slowly for years was suddenly rushing in a torrent. The Board of Supervisors rammed through an agreement with Angelo Tsakopoulos, a person I would not trust with someone else's money, let alone taxpayer money."
Tuesday: Tsakopoulos Drives Water Deal
"On Monday we asked what the rush was with this water deal that necessitated a decision during the time that normally people are on vacation and spending time with their families. On Monday night, in a packed City Hall, part with citizens skeptical of the deal, the other part with consultant and water experts arguing this is our only shot, we finally got the answer: Sacramento developer Angelos Tsakopoulos was driving the deal and the deadline.

The public complaint is the speed at which this deal is progressing, the lack of time for public input and the fact that this is happening during winter break, leading many in this community to question whether those in power are not somewhat hiding the ball here, and trying to hide portions of this deal from full public inquiry."
Wednesday: Council Approves Water Deal With Little Suspense by Predictable 4-1 Margin
"Calling it an historic agreement, the council while acknowledging the unfortunate calendar reality, nevertheless relented to the consistent pressure to pass the water deal prior to the December 31 deadline imposed by the Conaway Preservation Group (CPG) and the Tri-City company owned by Tsakopoulos who is trying to gain controlling interest in CPG.
In the end, it was not that the council was unconcerned about the lack of public process, but rather it was that they were not concerned enough."
Friday: Commentary: This is About Process Not Conspiracy Theories People keep asking me if I think this is a good deal for Davis and Yolo County. Quite frankly I do not know the answer to
that. It may be a good deal, it may not be a good deal. We may not know the answer to that for some time.
However, the point I think that needs to be made over and over again is that democracy is not about outcomes. We could get together and figure out the best solution and impose it on the people, that is not democracy. Democracy is about process - open process, transparent process, and sometimes messy process.

8BELL RINGER
A federal judge sentenced a former officer with the Bell Police Department to nine years in federal prison for sexually assaulting a female motorist and violating her civil rights, the Justice Department announced.
Feliciano Sanchez, 35 of Pico Rivera, received the sentence for the civil rights offense from U.S. District Judge Valerie Baker Fairbank.
Judge Fairbank said “the offense was serious, involving predatory conduct,[and was] committed by a police officer acting under color of law.”
Sanchez pleaded guilty last year to violating the female victim‟s civil rights when he forced her to perform oral sex after stopping her for a traffic violation. Sanchez admitted in court that on May 16, 2007, he took the victim in his patrol car to an isolated parking lot away from the traffic stop. During the assault, Sanchez placed his hand on his duty weapon and forced the victim to perform the sex act.
This makes one wonder why the Bell Police Officers Association is supporting BASTA that will support people that will vote to keep the BPD intact.
There are very few officers that were willing to speak out as did one former officer who has now retired. Others did as they were told even if what they did was on the line between right and wrong. Certainly there is no way that the residents can afford to pay the wages, pensions and costs of a City Police Department. It is time to consider either the LA Sheriff or a regional police authority.

9OXNARD SPEAKS
Martin Jones spoke out on accountability,(at 15 minutes after the beginning of the Council meeting) and the need for an outside forensic audit of Enterprise funds not relying on MHM who have been cited by the State Controller for deficient, questionable work in Bell.
Oxnard City Hall was locked down by the DA in August with search warrants issued for the homes and offices of those officials involved in the financial dealings of the city.
The City Staff has been approving $100,000 change orders without the approval of the Council. The Criminal Grand Jury has requested the DA take action. Martin Jones

Bell police is yanking you! Owens is divorced and there is a good reason for it. Neglected his wife and when he started messing around with other women. He is no James C. Jara is just jara with no back bone. Besides, they try to get tail from the high school girls with their uniforms and badges, yo know.

Bell is going to be the stupid voters that they can be if they vote for Velez. His duaghter should be running! He has no brain. He is not honest. Ask the people he stole from when he ran the Bell Sports Association. Rizzo bought him out. What happened to the money that was in the bank? He knew what his council friends were making cuase he got the allowances too. Why is ge getting paid for an educational allowance?
