Its funny to see the feds have so much time in there hands to bother a local developer that actualy employes 5,000 people.I guess that when the banks all received there bailout funds and gave it to there CEOs for bonuses and parties they were excused from any disaplinary action from our feds.This family has kept some of the economy going by continuing to build homes and lower prices to continue to sell them.It sounds like a total witch hunt to me or maybe some political person didnt receive campane funds from them and decided to cause some disruption.Bottom line is that im sure when this is all over we wont hear anything more about it cause they wont find anything Illegal going on,just another way for the feds to spend funds on a smoke screen.They wont look into terrorist in our country cause they create work for these fed agencies.

I'm sure this post is written by a Seeno employee! The most corrupt builder in the country, Why is Contra Costa County Rob taking the time to post on little Benicia's Topix page? Damage control? They also own the Peppermill casino and have had to pay fines because of their ties to the Hells Angels. They tried to take over our town with the help of Bill Whitney, Alan Swartzman, Mark Hughes,Scott Strawbridge,The Whole Bidou Family and The Benicia Police Dept. I don't understand why people re-elected Swartzman and hughes? All the people of Benicia have to do now is vote for one more Seeno candidate and they and the Hells Angels will own our town! What jobs Have they created for Americans Rob ? I think you mean illegals that take jobs and social services and school resorces from Americans and then take all the money they make here and send it out of the country so it doesn't even benifit our local economy in these hard times. I don't know if they will be convicted but I'm 100% sure they're guilty! We all know their track record!

Guilty! They are crooks!! Hey Rob how have you been paid off by the family? They are being investigated for a reason. The 3 agencies just dont waste there time on nothing. There is a reason they are there. If they had nothing to hide the lawyer for the family would not be avoiding the media! I found out the hard way on how the Seeno family does business and its about time they had there day!

So if I am to understand both Mackerek and soono looses and the others, since we don't like Seeno we as a city have the right to prevent yhem from building on their property a business park in an area zoned to be a business park. And befoe you accuse me, I think Seeno has earned his reputation. But the day we can prevent someone from developing their land in a manner that is in accordance with the general plan and zoning laws should make everyone scared. That land WILL be developed some day.

Albert D Sr Jr, Mr Sicilian Ggree:...Chadd Everone aka Ludwig, a Caucasian, was brought in by Le Roi Chapelle and William "Bill" Martin to facilitate control of the tribe when they discovered in December 1999, through Ray Fry, Tribal Operations, BIA/CCA, that Yakima Dixie was not the Chairperson or the leader of the tribe. Even with the truth being known, Bill Martin and Le Roi Chapelle manipulated Yakima Dixie (whom had no authority to sign any contracts or agreements on behalf of the Tribe and certainly no authority to put the sovereignty of the entire tribe in jeopardy) to sign the proposed agreement with the fictitious group created by them known as ABC Boxing, Inc., and/or the Martin/Chapelle Group. Upon the discovery of the true Chairperson being Silvia Burley, in 2000, Mr. Everone aka Ludwig was brought in to orchestrate the web of deceit that a few opportunist in the DOI/BIA have used to diminish the tribe's rights, as a way to oust the legitimate body of members that will not surrender their sovereignty or bend to the will of an illegitimate group or illegal and unethical actions of BIA Officials in Central California and Washington, D.C.
The Tribe has an extensive paper trail which implicates the local
Bureau of Indian Affairs-Central California Agency, whom of which the Tribe
is currently under jurisdiction, of involvement and an unethical
relationship with Chadd Everone/Ludwig's group. There is also documented
evidence of Everone/Ludwig hiring both an ex-commissioner of the California
Gambling Control Commission and an ex-attorney of the General Council of
the Commission, to exploit their pre-existing personal relationships to
influence the current Commission members to discontinue the State Revenue
Funding which is due to the Tribe.
The aim of the tactic is to undermine the Tribe financially by having
these people, who are outside the definitions of the regulations, freeze
the Tribe's funds; the result of which will cause the Tribe to shutdown
most, if not all, of its assistance programs, which have been thus far
aiding Tribal members and unrecognized Indians alike.

First of all, you need to get your facts really straight. The Seeno family does not have any ties with the Hell's Angels. There was ONE Hell's Angel named Art Carasis who was dealing drugs with Victor Bustos, who was Mr. Seeno, Sr.'s driver when he was getting old and retired. After they got caught (Vic & Art), the newspapers, etc. blew the whole thing out of proportion. That is where the misconception lies. So get the facts straight before posting. No one was arrested. There have been no convictions. When the facts come out, then we will see what happened. Distortions are made when facts are not even considered.

So what! These seem to me to be an ambitious people whose history has spanned over 70 years. You are lucky they have built the bedroom communities with their money, have contributed greatly to extensive associations, have employed people to create job opportunies, have paid their great portion in taxes for the government, etc. The is the American dream. That is what our government is founded on, isn't it? Complain to your government how you want this government run. Be an activist. Be smart with your statements, not ignorant.

Lucky to have a Seeno home, HA HA HA...ask the people off of San Marco in Pittsburg who have hills that were leveled without permits sliding. Ask the long line of commuters waiting on eastbound 4 every day how they like waiting because Seeno never kept up with the freeway upgrade he agreed to before building out in east CC County. Look at the relative he puts on the Pittsburg City Council to get past the pesky government building regulations that get in the way of making money. Who really cares about quality construction anyhow. Why old Sal even hung out over in Benicia and even claimed to vote in their city council race while they were trying to level 500+ acres in north Benicia. Make sure you know about all the things your boss does before posting such dribble online.
