I hope finally the police department will be cleaned up, but the man that supervises the police department is Michael Powers and Rob Cullen, they know every little detail of why Nick continues to collect a paycheck as a police chief even though he doesn't work and they know the activities that went on with the indictment that is being handed down by the DA. I hope that one of these cops that has been arrested will tell the truth of Rob Cullen's and Michael Powers involvement in this corruption. It all goes back, way back. Even Rob Cullen's in laws know what is going on. A few families are trying to control the entire city and they are killing the city, these few families are parasitic in nature, the towns people are the host. When the host is so sick it dies then these families move on with their bank accounts stuffed full of the ignorant residents of King city. The townspeople allow this to go on, oh yes there are a few that speak of it but the majority do nothing. The political machine in power that is behind this will continue unless a brave person or persons sing loud and clear all the facts. Wake up king city, the ship is sinking and the rats are fat with your garbage. Clean up the city, oust the mayor, the city manager, the city lawyer, fire the entire police department and begin again. The freedom of Government for the people and by the people requires the citizens to get involved otherwise you get the parasite Cullen.

I have known Nick Baldiviez for almost 25 years and I consider him a close friend. I do not believe that Nick would commit a crime but I do believe that your DA would cast a wide net for political reasons. He can pick on a city full of field workers easier than he can a city like Pacific Grove where there are rich influential white people. As for the reason why Nick is still collecting a paycheck, it is simple cash flow. When he decided to leave, the City did not have enough money to pay off his sick leave and his vacation leave. For years, Nick went without taking time off and these accounts grew. The City did not want to deplete their funds by paying this off at one time so they kept him on the rolls until the time ran out. By law, there is no other way this could be done. You can't have an employee leave and tell them that you will pay the balance of his accounts when you get around to it.

MICHAEL POWERS must be BLAMED for all this SHAME!
It is unbelievable he is still employed, making big dollars and for what?
It is unbelievable that council members allowed him to continue his mismanagement and incompetence for so long. He is one manipulating sociopath that will play it off as if he was unaware of this corruption.
I will not be surprised to see him in handcuffs soon, and he better be fired from my community!

It starts at the top:

MICHAEL POWERS city mismanager
Mayor numb nuts Robert Cullen
Terry Hughes councilman
Karen Jurnigan councilwoman

We need to get rid of the above to have a better King City!

P.S. FIRE MICHAEL POWERS! NOW!
