Moreno Valley: Citizens question credit card use | Moreno Valley

There are 70 comments on the www.pe.com story from Oct 9, 2010, titled Moreno Valley: Citizens question credit card use | Moreno Valley. In it, www.pe.com reports that:

A group of Moreno Valley residents that has pored over hundreds of public documents claims the city has issued too many credit cards and spent unwisely at a time when it faces a budget shortfall of $12 million.

City officials say they have reviewed the same documents and justify the spending as appropriate, necessary and far from excessive.

Moreno Valley first issued credit cards in fiscal year 1999-2000 and expanded the program as the city's needs grew, said Richard Teichert, financial director.

The city gives out 223 credit cards spread among 14 departments that run up a combined annual tab of about $4 million a figure that Chris Baca calls "outrageous."

Does The Press Enterprise look into and report on this issue, it seems it would be important to the voters to know of such things, and isn't that the reason behind the first amendment?

The Press Enterprise as well as Laurie Lucas, are in possession of all legal court documents on school board candidate Mike Rios, but we report on sunglasses, and snacks?

What these idiots felt they had to form a committee, to look at the city checkbook, Deanna Reeder has been doing that for quite a while, and challenging the council, when she feels things aren't quite right.

Oh excuse me her last name isn't Baca, they always have an agenda.

What Laurie Lucas had nothing better to write about. Why don't you write how you sat in the back of the council chambers, with Alicia Espinoza and Louise Palormaz about two weeks ago when the credit card issue was brought up by Espinoza. How the two women sat back there and heckled another speaker who thanked Mayor Flickinger for all the help she has provided for the neighborhood watch organization. And yes even Laurie Lucas was heard calling Mayor Flickinger a Bi***. Quite the professional reporter, seems a bit classless to me, along with rude and disrespectful. As far as Espinoza, her main pet project is to shut down the DUI Checkpoints. Her and her small group are nothing more than a bunch of racists.

A professional audit may be in order. It would determine if the purchases were appropriate or not. The Baca vigilantes are only trying influence the current council and school board races. The largest expenditures the Baca Vigilantes pointed out appear to be made for their own kids. Stop wasting the citizens tax dollars by wasting the city staffs time.

So the Mexican Political Association has changed their name again?!! It is ridiculous for Chris Baca or the rest of this embarrassing "committee" to overlook anything....They, including School Board member Victoria Baca thinks that drunks should be able to drive without those pesky police checking on them ESPECIALLY if they are illegal aliens... I'm sure they would be happy if African American, Asian Americans, and Caucasians were sent directly to jail. If you want to see how these people operate, come to a MV City council meeting. They sit in the back, act like juvenile delinquents, and attempt to intimidate other citizens who do not agree with their pro illegal alien/Iddo stand. They have a lot of nerve checking on anyone's behavior until they greatly improve their own!!

Are you sure this site isn't run by Flickinger?

Seems all her issues get supported here and all her opponents attacked.

Am I wrong? Maybe misinterpreting?

No this isn't a Flickinger site. If she wants one she can get her own. At my blog I have gone after her as well.

It is just that because she is my neighbor people (From the Baca Klan) seek to attack her here, not because of her, but me. But Flickinger is just a neighbor, and that's it.

As you can see there is no controls here, anyone can post what ever they wish.

I've been posting here from 2008 to today, and just voice my opinion. Do you really think I would put up with all this B.S. for her?

I can see why you would say that. But Mayor Flickinger seems to be the one in the hot seat, Baca, Alicia do not attack others as they want that seat for one of theirs, thats the goal, so sorry if it seems that way. But George, Jesus, and Oscar are a thumbs up for me. As far as Council, Bonnie and Robin try, Stewart and Molina Lie. Baily.. just not around to know about, my opinion.

Alicia, Louise, and Laurie Lucas. Sat in their seats talking loud as if they discovered the City's Secret (Corruption). They caused a scene, by being rude and loud (childish). Only to speak to everyone on how the Police are buying sunglasses and coffee. "Are you shitting me, idiots", the very thought everyone had in that room. They made FOOLS of themselves as always. Hey here is some wise advise:
Lucas, focus on getting a story, not being one. Actually you should be fired! I do know that people are not going to call you anymore as you are on the side of shit, not story.
Alicia & Louise.. Your buddy is on our School Board (Baca) why don't you focus on making the schools better and not dumps. "Oh ya" all three of you had that chance. And guess what? Are schools are worst!
Oh FYI, the Cities Corruption is all three of you!
No Secret!!! Go To www.MVGORDIE.com
Ya you hate that man, and we love him, for standing up to you piece of CACA, Oh and he does it without drama in the Chambers room.

Rewarding volunteers is a small incentive for their service. Anderson said he's sought approval for refreshments from city officials and encountered no problems.

The truth is that under the check register they labeled it as " Volunteers". They never provided an itemized receipt or copies of the Form 700 ( names of volunteers).
Rumors hold strong that the purchases were for beer.

A professional audit Is conducted EVERY year by an outside INDEPENDENT accounting firm. This is standard practice for all governmental agencies. The City has always received an unqualified (clean) audit ... what more do you want? This group is reaching for something that simply isny there! Of course it doesn't help that they go into the matter with a closed mind.

I totally understand your frustration that the Press Enterprise doesn't print your garbage. You see the Press Enterprise relies on facts not fiction as you do. Your better off selling your crap of lies to the National Enquirer they might entertain your BS. Now I did a little reseach of my own and this is what I came up with.
MIKE L.RIOS VS LUIS MIGUEL RIOS if even there the same person or not?
1.DMV records show that Mr.Mike Rios first issued a drivers lic in the mid 80's even back then you had to produce a birth certificate,and guess what his first ever lic was issued under the name of Mike Luis Rios. Unlike your claims that he recently changed his name to hide from his past.
(2)Now that brings me to his past? You claim he has been convicted of child molestation although I checked Megans Law and their is no record on file under the name Mike L. Rios or Luis Miguel Rios intresting isn't it.
(3)You claim Mike Rios was convicted of battey, domestic violence and using a firearm in the course of a criminal act. Again no record of any conviction or felony on his record. Again more lies by you. It is apparent you are trying very hard to get the public to see your lies as fact. I give the Press Enterprise the thumbs up for not buying your BS or lies.
I then asked myself why doesn't Mike Rios sue your ass then I find out why? You don't have a dime to fall on, and your monthly checks on taxpayers dime is protected by law so if Rios sued you it would cost him money to recive nothing. Mr.Rios if you read this I say sue Topix for allowing this "Hitler defending,Fact twisting,lying sack of crap to continue his LIES. For the record Gordon I and my family of (6) are all registered voters in Moreno Valley and I know this might shock you , but were voting for MIKE RIOS. What get's me during the P.E. forum Mike Rios said he had (2)children that attend MVUSD and you put your twist and said he left out his other (2) children good job loser. Anyone out there who wishes to talk to Mike Rios can do so his number is on all his signs and get the facts, he will meet with you and personnally show you all his documents like he did with me and put this morons lies to rest.

Five members of this group? It's just Chris, Victoria Baca and Alicia Espinoza. Both Victoria and Alicia count as two people.

It's pretty obvious that Alicia Espinoza has something out for the police. I wonder if it all stems from that parking ticket that she cannot afford to pay?

Anyway, to many people,$160 for sunglasses is not unreasonable. If you want to factor it this way, you are paying about .44 cents a day for the first year that you have those glasses to keep the sun out of your eyes so you don't run over some kid running across the street. Sure you could get cheaper glasses, but they might not have the warranty nor the contruction that the other glasses do. And these are issued to people who work in all types of environment. It's not like they are working paper 24/7.

Now if you want to talk about wasting money, shall we discuss welfare for illegals? Or is that just a whole other topic?

Alicia Espinoza and pals should spend their time forming a weight watchers chapter rather than these nonsense committees. But as Jose Espinoza stated:'whatever keeps her out of the fridge or the bedroom I am happy with it'.

I just paid almost $500 for reading glasses from Sears. I wanted sunglasses, but they were $150.
This is Sears, this is what working people pay!

So pick a day, a place and lets meet. Bring Rios. I would like to know the truth, as well as many here. Make sure he brings copies of his divorce and child support papers. Screw drivers license, as anyone can get one. And lets get to the bottom of it.
Gordie has not said convicted, but arrested.. making me think.. your starting something???(twisting things) plus he like you, have freedom of speech.
Lets meet! Call Rios and make the date and time, post it here and we will show. Remember Copies and I would like one in my hand.. nothing up the sleeve bit. Lets see if he is real, heres Rios one chance to correct anything Gordie/Gordon has said or posted.
Also, why not put his number here. I have to go get a sign, non of your six members know his number? Six adults huh?
Well I will be waiting on that date

You need to check YOUR FACTS:

First: Never was it said Luis Miguel Rios was convicted, just arrested.

Second: Luis Miguel Rios and Mike Luis Rios are on in the same.

"Now I did a little reseach of my own and this is what I came up with.
MIKE L.RIOS VS LUIS MIGUEL RIOS if even there the same person or not?"

Third: DMV records are not public information, and any looking into them by an employee of the DMV for their own personal reasons is a crime.

"Now I did a little reseach of my own and this is what I came up with.
MIKE L.RIOS VS LUIS MIGUEL RIOS if even there the same person or not?"

Fourth: Luis Miguel Rios, AKA Mike Luis Rios was in fact arrested for all charges as I claim.

Fifth: Court records don't lie.

Sixth: You don't sue because you have NO CASE.

Seventh: Spin it anyway you want, my blog speaks for itself. The documents are real, and the statements made by me are correct and factual.

Eighth: Mr. Rios is not licensed as I have claimed, to work in the field of investigations of any kind as he has claimed.

Ninth: He raised the issue of his children more than once, but never mentioned the fact he has three of his own, and one stepson, he repeatedly mentions two.

Tenth: Court records recorded in Riverside County, all prove that Mike Luis Rios and Luis Miguel Rios are in fact the same person. These records even show the past and now current residence of Mike Rios on Palm Shadows, in Moreno Valley.
