Overmatched Council Leaves Upland City Hall On Brink Of Meltdown

A “perfect political storm” of events has the City of Upland teetering on the brink of a meltdown, upsetting or threatening old political alliances and undercutting existing ones, played against a backdrop of palace intrigue and the manifestation of unintended consequences that are growing beyond the grasp of any of the players and the span of control of the city council or city management.
The catalyst in the current crisis is the commitment by the council earlier this year to disband its 111-year old municipal fire department.
For years, Upland has been beset by dysfunctional politics and governance. The most pronounced manifestation of this dysfunction was the scandal that embroiled the city’s former mayor, John Pomierski, who reigned over the city with an iron fist from his election in 2000 until he resigned in February 2010. That resignation proceeded by two days his indictment by a federal grand jury, which charged him with bribery based upon an established pattern of shaking down individuals with project proposals or otherwise having business pending before the city. Pomierski ultimately pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years in federal prison. Also caught up in the matter was the man Pomierski had handpicked to serve as his city manager during his final five years in office, Robb Quincey. Ultimately, Quincey was convicted, as well, not in federal court but in state court, again on charges pertaining to political corruption and violations of the public trust. There were a multitude of casualties along the way, including the city manager Quincey replaced, Mike Milhiser, and the city’s then-police chief, Martin Thouvenell. By virtue of their positions, Milhiser and Thouvenell had an inkling of what Pomierski was up to and were among the first elements in the community to resist his designs. But Pomierski was able to use his political lock over three-fourths of the city council, which included at various times during his tenure a member of the district attorney’s office who would go on to become a Superior Court judge and another attorney who was a partner in a prestigious law firm, to give both Milhiser and Thouvenell the bum’s rush out the door.
Upland, or most certainly that portion of it lying north of Foothill Blvd., is one of the more upscale communities in San Bernardino County, with thousands of high-functioning professionals of all types living there. Nevertheless, that level of sophistication has not been reflected in many of its council members, few of whom have had any degree of sophistication commensurate with the lion’s share of those they have ruled. Blunders and worse by city staff, including outright venalities, have gone unaddressed by both previous and current city councils. During Pomierski’s unfettered reign, his sole political opposition consisted of Ray Musser, who had been elected to the city council in 1998, two years before Pomierski’s ascendency to elected office. Both instinctively and on the basis of his observations, Musser would eventually attempt to block, or at least retard, the Pomierski juggernaut. Musser proved famously unsuccessful at doing so. Shortly after he held the mayoral scepter in his hand, Pomierski had formed “Team Upland.” He fitted all of the city council members with Upland High School lettermen’s jackets, which they then wore in public together to symbolize their consonance. Pomierski was clearly the ringleader, the political boss of a Tammany Hall-type set up that included Tom Thomas, who had been on the city council since 1990 and had been put in his place in the 2000 mayoral election when he had placed third, with 4,970 votes or 21.3 percent to Pomierski’s 10,555 votes or 45. 2 percent; Ken Willis, who had also come into office in 2000 while supporting councilwoman Sue Sundell for mayor, who placed second in the race against Pomierski; and Michael Libutti, who was then a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office. Even Musser, as an incumbent, was brought into the fold, at least initially. Milhiser, who had two decades of experience in managing municipal operations in Upland, Ontario and in Montclair before that, was directed to comport his management style with that dictated by the council and the council was dictated to by Pomierski. When Libutti was elevated to the Superior Court to succeed Lou Glazier in May 2002 by Governor Gray Davis, the support network around Pomierski promoted Brendan Brandt, an established attorney who was the son of superstar lawyer Barry Brandt and the brother of Brian Brandt, another successful attorney, to succeed Libutti. Like Libutti before him, Brandt’s presence on the council gave the Pomierski political machine the appearance of respectability and legal leverage along with the cachet of invulnerability it needed to proceed with its depredations. At that point, Musser, up for reelection in 2002, had not strayed off, or very far off, the reservation and he too was embraced as an ally. Two years later, however, Musser had begun to question what it was that Pomierski was up to and had grown to become the skunk at Pomierski’s garden party. He then challenged Pomierski in the 2004 election, giving the incumbent a run for his money – and the money of dozens of individuals willing to pay Pomierski under the table or provide him with bribes and kickbacks laundered as political contributions. But Pomierski was able to outdistance the challenger, 14,528 votes or 53.72 percent to 11,605 votes, or 46.8 percent. At once, Pomierski and his confederates on the council set about extracting their revenge, stripping Musser of all of his committee and joint powers authority assignments, seeking to neuter him politically. The following year, Pomierski gave Milhiser and Thovenell the heave-ho, at which point he in earnest set about looting Upland seven ways from Sunday. The more money he brought in, the better he was able to insulate himself from any possible accountability. He endorsed the district attorney, Mike Ramos, with whom he shared donors. Ramos, who was informed as early as 2005 about the intensive pay-to-play ethos that had beset Upland, looked the other way, and when Musser once again challenged Pomierski in 2008, Ramos along with Brandt, Willis and Thomas, endorsed Pomierski, who cruised to an even more decisive victory over Musser that year, 15,971 votes or 57.4 percent to 11,853 or 42.6 percent. Pomierski allowed a nepotistic arrangement in which Stephanie Mendenhall continued to function as city clerk, even as her husband, Jeff Mendenhall rose meteorically from the position of sergeant in the police department to lieutenant, then captain, then penultimately while Pomierski was yet in office, to acting police chief and ultimately, following Pomierski’s departure, police chief. Pomierski also arranged to provide Quincey, as city manager, with the same raises calculated along the same percentages as those provided to members of the police department. He then put Quincey in charge of collective bargaining with the police union. Stephanie Mendenhall, as city clerk, processed eight raises provided to Quincey, several of them provided to him under highly questionable circumstances, without, in at least two cases, a full vote of the city council but rather merely upon the authority of Pomierski’s signature. This gave Quincey a series of salary and benefit enhancements such that by January 2011 he was receiving a base salary and add-ons of $368,529 with benefits of $92,096, for a total annual compensation of $460,625, making him among the highest paid city managers in the state. The corresponding salary increases the members of the police department were receiving left them disinclined to pursue investigations of Pomierski, despite the constant rumors and reports that he was on the take. Having essentially bought off the police department and the district attorney, Pomierski was at liberty to enrich himself further and build his political machine. By 2010, however, word of the situation in Upland and the local authorities’ unwillingness to act reached the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office in Los Angeles. On June 10 of that year, FBI and IRS agents raided Upland City Hall, Pomierski’s home and the offices of Pomierski’s contracting business and the offices and homes of several of his associates. In February 2011, knowing that his indictment by a federal grand jury was coming just a few days later, Pomierski resigned. Willis and Brandt, clearly flummoxed and chastened by what had just occurred with their political boss and whistling past the political graveyard themselves, eventually settled, after a suggestion that Brandt should succeed Pomierski as mayor, on elevating Musser to the mayoralty. That vote barely passed, as the councilman who in the 2010 election had displaced Thomas, Gino Filippi, refused to support Musser. Later that year, in August, Upland held a special election to fill the council seat that Musser had vacated to replace Pomierski. Eleven candidates, Thouvenell among them, ran in that race, which manifested and continues to redound as a watershed event in Upland. Despite his legitimate claim to being one of the few bulwarks against Pomierski, Thouvenell found himself paradoxically endorsed by the Upland Police Officers Association, the same organization that a growing segment of the electorate in Upland was coming to realize had participated in the corruption of the Pomierski Era, having achieved for its members substantial raises and enhanced benefits by sweeping the former disgraced mayor’s transgressions under the rug. Thouvenell thus found himself at odds with a major portion of the Upland business community, which had grown resentful of City Hall and having to constantly pay tribute to Pomierski in the form of kickbacks to be able to transact business in town. Moreover, the other major public safety labor union in the city, the Upland Firefighters Association, had swung behind a political neophyte, Debbie Stone, whose only substantial claim to fame in the City of Gracious Living was that she was by her former marriage and continuing employment linked to the Stone Funeral Home, an established element of the Upland business community as well as to Zella Stone, the first woman elected to the Upland City Council back in 1966. Stone nonetheless enjoyed several advantages, not the least of which was that her campaign manager was Bob Cable, the scion of the Cable Family and one of the owners of Cable Airport. Though Colonies-Pacific LLC, College Park Apartment Homes LP, MG Stoneridge Village Grove LLC, Rancho Monte Vista Apartment Homes, CT Retail Properties Finance II LLC, WNG Mountain Springs GP, Koll Per College Business Park LLC, the Dee Matreyek Kurth Non Exempt Trust, NU-168 Apartments LLC, and North Benson Apartments LLC are larger net property taxpayers in Upland than Cable Airport, by at least some measures Cable Airport yet qualifies as Upland’s most significant business operation. Cable’s wife was also Upland’s deputy fire chief. The 2011 special election thus turned into something of a showdown between the police officers’ union and the firefighters’ union. While the police officers threw more money into the effort to get Thouvenell elected than the firefighters put into Stone’s electioneering fund, the willingness of the firefighters to walk precincts for Stone as well as the lingering community hostility toward the police union over its link to Pomierski carried the day and she prevailed in the race, 3,589 votes or 34.93 percent to the 2,897 votes or 28.19 percent that went to Thouvenell as the second place finisher.
In 2012, Upland’s voters reelected Musser mayor in a race in which he was challenged by both Stone and Filippi. Also elected in the city council race that year was Glenn Bozar, a logistics manager at the West Coast distribution center for Tyco Connectivity, a $13 billion company. Bozar brought to the council a degree of financial sophistication that had not been present on the city council for a generation. Among the principles he recognized with an acuity his colleagues did not was the degree to which Pomerski’s giveaways to city staff, especially the police department, to prevent the likelihood that he would be held to account for his pillaging had exacerbated an almost universal circumstance among California governmental entities in which the escalating cost of benefits over the years – primarily in the form of generous pensions to be provided to retirees – had resulted in cities’costs outrunning their revenues, what in governmental parlance is referred to as an unfunded pension liability. Thus, for example, in the current fiscal year, $7.9 million of Upland’s $45,952,403 general fund budget is going toward pensions, i.e., payments to individuals no longer working for the city. Bozar took the lead in the effort to have the city come to terms with this financial burden, which is projected to continue to grow as more and more of the city’s current employees who were extended those generous retirement benefits reach retirement age.
Initially, Bozar had what appeared to be an alliance with the city manager who had replaced Quincey, Stephen Dunn. Dunn had been the city’s finance director under MIlhiser and Quincey, and he shared with Bozar an understanding of the city’s dire financial prospects and a recognition that the unfunded pension liability represented the major dagger aimed at the city’s heart. That alliance fizzled out, however, with the vicissitudes of politics, which resulted in at least some measure from Bozar’s council colleagues being more empathetic toward city employees than he was. Bozar was determined to eliminate as many existing employees as was practical and hold the line on any further salary or benefit increases among remaining city workers. Adamantly opposed to raising taxes to make ends meet and insisting that doing so would only result in the lack of fiscal discipline that had allowed city staff to expand beyond the city’s means, Bozar was butting heads more and more with the other council members who advocated raising taxes – either in the form of a utility tax or sales tax. By late 2013, Dunn had gravitated toward embracing the taxing proposal and the relationship between Bozar and Dunn soured. As a consequence, an alliance had formed among Stone, Filippi and Dunn. In the winter of 2013/14, the relationship between Bozar and Dunn deteriorated further and by the spring, an enmity between Dunn on one side and Bozar and Musser on the other had developed. Perhaps counting too heavily on the continued support of Brandt, Dunn at one point in a closed session of the council demanded that Bozar resign. Brandt, who was generally ill disposed toward any sort of precipitous action, saw Dunn’s demand of Bozar to be an unacceptable breach of the chain of authority. He joined with Musser and Bozar in dispatching Dunn into early retirement, conferring upon him a one-year severance package. Dunn took his exodus, hired on immediately as the executive director at Cable Airport, and in a show of pique declared his candidacy for city council in the upcoming November 2014 election. Together, Filippi, Stone and Dunn ran as a troika in a race in which Brandt opted out of running for reelection. While Stone and Filippi garnered reelection, Dunn fell short. Instead, longtime planning commissioner Carol Timm, whose primary basis of appeal was her dedication to the preservation of Upland’s historical homes, came in second between Stone as the first place finisher and Filippi in third.
Three months before Timm’s victory, the city council hired Rod Butler to serve as city manager. Upland had eliminated its deputy city manager post in the 1990s. In February 2015, Butler recommended that the city reclassify the administrative services director position, which at that point Stephanie Mendenhall held in addition to being city clerk, to deputy city manager. The council voted 3-2 to approve the change. Stephanie Mendenhall retired in July 2015, joining her husband, who had retired at the beginning of the year. Together, the couple began drawing $276,283.38 in their combined annual pensions. Before the month of July 2015 was out, Butler moved to fill Stephanie Mendenhall vacated position with Jeanette Vagnozzi.
Throughout the remainder of 2015, Bozar’s discomfiture with Butler grew, as the city manager seemed unwilling to make the personnel parings that Bozar wanted. Bozar found himself increasingly isolated on the council, which flirted with the concept of tax proposals. Bozar at that point had few allies at City Hall. One of those was Scott Williams, who had started as Upland’s finance manager in March 2015. Despite the seeming resentment of many city employees,Williams provided Bozar with the comprehensive data he needed to make his arguments for the downsizing of municipal operations. Significantly, in November 2015, when city staff brought forth a proposal to place on the November 2016 ballot a half cent sales tax measure, the council appeared to be ready to place it before the voters and promote it. But Bozar railed against it, saying it would be unprincipled to impose a higher tax burden on the city’s residents when the revenue would ultimately end up paying for the too-generous salaries of current employees and bank-breaking pensions of current and future retirees. In the face of Bozar’s opposition, both Stone and Filippi lost their nerve and the council rejected placing the measure on the ballot by a 4 to 1 margin, with only Timm in support.
In the spring of 2016, as Bozar and Stone were gravitating toward a run for mayor which ultimately manifested when Musser declined to seek reelection, Bozar, as chairman of the city’s finance committee, pushed Butler again and again and again in April, May and June to further reduce planned-for expenditures in the then-upcoming 2016-17 fiscal year. Butler at first complied, as the rest of the council gave Bozar at least lukewarm support in that request. But then Butler balked and when Bozar angled for a showdown over the issue, the remainder of the council, including Musser, sided with Butler. Stone, at the meeting at which the council passed the budget Butler had provided, upbraided Bozar, telling him, “Glenn, just let Rod do his job.” The budget passed with Bozar casting the lone dissenting vote. Remarkably, a month later, by a bare 3-2 majority, the council terminated Butler. Voting in favor of the dismissal, which conferred upon Butler a $206,997 severance package to be paid over nine months at $22,999.67 per month, were Stone, Filippi and Musser. Bozar and Timm opposed the firing. The council simultaneously voted, with Bozar dissenting, to bring in Thouvenell to act as interim city manager.
There had been a longstanding relationship between Thouvenell and Filippi. Mayor Musser, who had been in the same foxhole as Thouvenell during their war with Pomierski, held Thouvenell in high esteem and had faith in him. For Stone, who had vanquished Thouvenell’s political aspirations in 2011 and was now in a race for mayor against Bozar, forming an alliance with Thouvenell made all the political sense in the world. Timm was equally disposed toward getting along with Thouvenell. Thouvenell, who had briefly served as acting city manager in the 1990s when the city was between city managers, made the rounds at City Hall in early August 2016. Among his initial primary assignments, aside from seeing that City Hall remained operational on a day to day basis, was making a recommendation to the city council on what it should do about getting a new city manager, and, when they emerged, evaluate candidates for job. In his initial size-up, he was less than fully impressed with Vagnozzi, who some saw as potentially succeeding Butler. To a few city officials, Thouvenell expressed his belief that the presence of Vagnozzi as Butler’s right-hand woman was a sign of administrative weakness, that she was an unnecessary vestige and that the next city manager should be one that would be able to function with complete autonomy and on his or her own authority. The implication was that Vagnozzi would soon be a permanent part of Upland history.
One of those Thouvenell conferred with was Williams, the finance manager. For Williams, it was an anxiety-producing time. The city manager who had hired him had just been fired. But the circumstance also presented opportunities. Williams was not without ambition of his own. As the city official in Upland with the best command of the lay of the financial land, his advancement to the city manager’s post, especially given the continuing need to reduce municipal operational costs, on at least one level made sense. Less than a year before Williams began with Upland, the city had outsourced its library operations. While he was finance manager, Upland had outsourced animal control division. In seeking to assist Thouvenell in mapping out a strategy for Upland’s economic recovery, Williams mentioned the possibility of further outsourcings, creative means of driving down municipal operational costs. The biggest potential money savers Williams said, consisted of shuttering the city’s fire and police departments and annexing to or contracting with the county fire agency and the sheriff’s department. In the case of letting the fire department tend to Upland’s fire safety, Williams said, the city might reap a savings of $2 million. Having the sheriff’s department subsume the police department, he said, would save the city upwards of $4 million annually, he said. Thouvenell recognized at once that Williams represented a mortal threat to the Upland Police Department. For thirty years Thouvenell had been a policeman with Upland P.D., from the lowest level as a patrol officer right up the chain of command to police chief. The department was a continuing element of his personal legacy, one that would outlast him and his time on this Earth. He could not bring himself to participate in its demise.
Nevertheless, the city’s financial picture remained a troubled one. Operational savings had to be found somewhere. The police department, where the greater savings potential lay, would not be touched. But the fire department would go, Thouvenell decided.
In Upland, personnel files are kept within the department of human resources, which was the deputy city manager’s bailiwick. Within weeks, information lifted directly out of Williams’ personnel file was being bruited about City Hall and had reached the ears of the council, specifically references to his own personal finances. The damage was immediate and the implication clear: the person at the forefront of overseeing and managing the city’s finances had a round of difficulty with his own financial affairs. The impact was that Williams’ status within the Upland organization was lowered and any prospect that he would be considered for the city manager’s post ended.
Out of the blue, Upland Fire Chief Paul Segalla was placed on administrative leave in August. Two-and-a-half years previously, Upland and Montclair had entered into a joint powers arrangement for shared management and administration of their fire departments. When inquiries were made as to the grounds for Segalla having been put on leave, Upland officials indicated it was because of a complaint from Montclair. Montclair City Manager Ed Starr, however, told the Sentinel at the time that the action against Segalla was unilaterally taken by Upland. With minimal fanfare and without first informing Montclair that it was doing so, Upland at its last city council meeting in September 2016 terminated its joint powers arrangement for the shared management and administration of the fire department with Montclair. Simultaneously, Thouvenell had prepared for the council a proposal to “study” the cost savings potential of having an outside agency assume firefighting responsibility in Upland. The city council consented to undertaking the study.
In the 2016 election, the support network around Stone, including Cable, overwhelmed Bozar and she was elected mayor, 16,037 votes or 56.52 percent to 12,338 votes or 43.48 percent. Also victorious in the November 8 race was Janice Elliott, who was elected to the council post Bozar had vacated to run for mayor. Upon Elliot and Stone being sworn into office in December, the full council then moved to appoint Sid Robinson, who had placed second in the city council race, to fill the position on the council vacated by Stone to take the mayor’s position. Elected treasurer was Larry Kinley, a former problem loan officer with the Bank of America who espoused a public fiscal policy akin to that of Bozar. Kinley beat Stephen Dunn in that race.
Earlier this year, there was a flurry of activity impacting Upland. The city council in January moved to terminate its contract with city attorney Richard Adams and brought in James Markman, who was formerly Upland’s city attorney but who was pressured to leave because it was believed that his dual representation of Upland and adjacent Rancho Cucamonga represented a potential for conflict. Markman, who has been city manager with a number of municipalities, has a reputation as a city council enabler who liberally construes the law to permit city officials to engage in action or policies in the face of citizen opposition. The “study” with regard to the fire service annexation to the county was completed by the San Bernardino County Local Agency Formation Commission. The commission staff’s conclusion was that the annexation could be done and that the unincorporated county area north of Upland, San Antonio Heights, could be included in the annexation. This mimicked to a considerable degree similar annexations that had taken place over the previous two years in the cities of San Bernardino, Twentynine Palms and Needles. Included in the annexation package was a requirement that each parcel within the city and San Antonio Heights pay an annual assessment fee of $153 and that commercial establishments adhere to a fire protection service fee arrangement set by the county. The city council, upon Thouvenell’s recommendation, applied to proceed with the annexation application, which was heard by the commission board and passed over the objections of a number of Upland and San Antonio Heights residents. Immediately upon the joint city council/Local Agency Formation Commission action to close out the Upland municipal fire department, a firestorm erupted. A peculiarity of such mergers is that no actual vote of the citizenry impacted is required. Rather, residents are provided with a 30-day protest period to object to such an annexation. A resident’s failure to lodge a letter of protest is deemed to be support of the annexation. If a minimum of 25 percent of the jurisdiction’s parcel owners or voters lodge letters of protest, than an annexation vote is held. If 50 percent plus one or more of parcel owners or voters lodge letters of protest, then the annexation is annulled. In the history of San Bernardino County, no such protest process has ever resulted in a vote let alone an annexation nullification. Shrouded within this mix was the consideration that throughout its entire history since incorporation in 1906, the City of Upland had defrayed the cost of operating its fire department, using its own general fund. What the annexation would do is transfer firefighting duty to the county while simultaneously transferring the cost of paying the county for that service to the city’s residents, what is for them an entirely new tax or assessment, one they had never previously been required to pay. On its end, Upland city government would be relieved of the cost of the $11.98 million current annual cost of running the fire department. Thus, with one fell swoop, and without a vote of those to bear it, the city passed overnight a $11.98 million annual tax upon its citizens. This does not take into consideration that the annexation equally impacted the residents of San Antonio Heights, who are not represented by the Upland City Council. As the implication of this has spread throughout the city, growing numbers of people have come to see it as an unscrupulous exercise in sleight of hand by which they are being victimized. Moreover, a contingent of residents are disturbed by the prospect that the city is surrendering local control over its fire department to the county, compromising its ability to conform service to the specific and special needs of Upland.
Stone’s strengths and political talent do not include intellectual prowess or anything approaching what might be termed standard power of analysis or reason. She has progressed to the post of the mayor of the City of Gracious Living rather on her willingness to stay within the parameters laid out for her by her handlers and carry out the dictates of others, those being in general her supporters and that contingent of the Upland business community that has traditionally seen it as in its best interest to cooperate with City Hall. So, too, have Filippi and Timm made their political marks not by scintillating innovation and independent judgment, but rather by going along to get along, following, with only the rarest of exceptions, the guidance of city staff. All three of them, along with the rest of the council, seem to have been overwhelmed by the response the fire district annexation has triggered. They have taken to relying on Markman, who has trotted out his standard defense, which promulgates that the council and its members are acting within the law. That, however, misses the mark within the immediate and now encroaching political context, as it is not the technical legality of their action that has fallen under question but rather its wisdom.
Stone, in particular, appears incapable of appreciating what she has wrought for herself by relying upon the game plan formulated for the city by Thouvenell and Vagnozzi, having perhaps forgotten that it was the firefighters union and the city’s firefighters themselves that brought her into office in 2011 and remained as the backbone of her politicy. She has crossed up Cable, who, as the owner of one of the largest pieces of real estate in the city, the operator of a business to which more than any other the provision of fire protection service in Upland is critical and as a homeowner in San Antonio Heights, has been triply played false.
This has deprived Stone of the guidance Cable was previously providing her, leaving her without an important beacon by which to assess her progress as an Upland leader. And because Cable employs Stephen Dunn as the airport’s executive manager and because Dunn had grown to become one of her principal advisors as well, she is now without sustaining direction in much of her function.
In February, when Bozar came to a city council meeting to tell its members that while on the council he had supported the study of the fire district annexation only insofar as it represented a cost-cutting option and that utilizing it as a means of increasing taxes was not in his view an acceptable or wise policy, Stone’s anger and impatience were palpable. When Bozar later attempted to have the council recognize Williams for his efforts in wrestling with the city’s fiscal problems, Stone insisted that Bozar’s comments were out of order, inappropriate and untimely. She threatened to have him arrested if he did not yield the public speaker’s podium.
In an effort to further solidify control over the city’s politics, decision making authority and the flow of critical information, the council has taken Larry Kiney’s voting power on the Upland Finance Committee away from him. The finance committee is composed of two council members and the city treasurer. Traditionally, all three members had voting power within the committee’s purview, which was to provide city staff, in the main the finance director or finance manager, with direction on items relating to the city’s financial circumstance that are to be submitted to the city council for action. The council’s move to disenfranchise Kinley, whose 16,625 votes were more than was polled by Stone in her mayoral election, has not sat well with many members of the community.
In recent months and weeks, the public discontent with the council has boiled over. The council’s effort to allay that unhappiness has backfired. Timm, apparently relying on Markman’s formula, has propounded more than once that the annexation is a legal one and that the citizenry is being given the opportunity to “vote” upon it. Such representations have angered a significant portion of her constituency, which does not consider the process of mailing in protest letters to constitute a “vote.”
Sid Robinson, the newest member of the city council, works professionally as a publicist and public relations consultant, what he has termed a “strategic communications specialist.” His political formula of aligning himself with the majority has created, even before his six month anniversary in office, a crisis that threatens to derail his political future. Upland residents have begun to belittle his approach, maintaining that the crisis at City Hall cannot be addressed by glib statements and attempts at employing public relations. So overwhelmed by the public’s hostility has Robinson been that he has stopped returning phone calls from the public and the press.
City officials are now ducking desperately for cover. Precipitously, in an apparent effort to reduce the metastasizing anger, the city took down from its website the video broadcasts of city council meetings. Vagnozzi indicated that was mere coincidence. “We are in the process of converting them to the new format,” she said.
Beyond that, city officials appear to have crossed the line into illegality by violating the Brown Act, California’s open meeting law
At the May 8 Upland City Council meeting, the council was presented with a document bearing the heading “In House Policies of the Upland City Council.” Contained in the document are several statements. One is “If a city council person has a grievance with another council member, they must discuss it with that person. If the matter is unresolved, go to the city manager and that council person and the manager can speak together with them. Under no circumstances should a council member go to the general public and discuss personal matters or conflicts between council members.” It also states, “Social media is a great way to communicate meetings and tell about council meetings, final decisions of council, events, etc. but if a vote has been made by the council, a councilmember should support the decision of the whole council whether they agree or not on social media and at any public meetings. Monitor your posts carefully. Only the mayor with a majority vote of the council can call for ‘town hall meetings.’ If a councilmember wishes to meet with constituents, call it a ‘coffee’ or another name so that the citizens are not confused about the opinion you are espousing. It is advisable to have several people oversee any informational or newspaper articles that are submitted. The city manager should be aware of your article and submittal.”
The document was signed by Stone, Filippi, Robinson and Timm. Printed next to several of the sentences on the document were JE, but it was not clear from the document that those were Janice Elliott’s signed initials or whether that meant to convey that Elliot had violated the policy. There was no indication on the council agenda that the document was to be discussed and there was no announcement by Markman after the council came out of closed session that the document had been ratified by the council. California’s Ralph M. Brown Act requires that all discussions of a panel of elected officials be announced 72 hours previous to the discussion. Closed session discussion, that is, those outside the presence of the public, can relate only to personnel items, contract negotiations, anticipated or ongoing litigation and real estate transactions. Elliott is the only current member of the council who has not embraced the fire district annexation in all of its ramifications. The document, which has now been widely distributed around the community, is perceived as an effort to prevent Elliott from assisting those opposed to the annexation, activity which Thouvenell and Vagnozzi, as well as some of the members of the city council, suspect she has engaged in.
Simultaneously, it is reported to the Sentinel, Vagnozzi has been militating to be chosen as city manager, to become effective upon Thouvenell’s departure as interim city manager. Among Thouvenell’s assignments is to make an evaluation of the city’s options with regard to its future city manager, determine whether carrying out a statewide or nationwide recruitment effort is necessary and assist the council in evaluating any of those who apply. He has the option of simply recommending that Vagnozzi, who presents the advantage of being up-to-speed with regard to the myriad of issues and challenges facing the city and who also has two years of accumulated institutional memory in Upland, be entrusted with leading the city. Despite his initial assessment formed during his first week as interim city manager last summer that Vagnozzi had been an unnecessary accoutrement to Butler’s office, Vagnozzi for nine months has demonstrated loyalty to Thouvenell and executed on crucial elements of Thouvenell’s policies. She has shared in the negative fallout associated with the fire district annexation and can be trusted, Thouvenell believes, in steering the current or any future city council away from dissolving the police department and contracting with the sheriff’s department for law enforcement services.
For the council and city management, however, things are likely to get worse before they get better. The protest period for the fired district annexation opened on May 12 and will run through June 14. An energetic drive to encourage Upland and San Antonio Heights residents to lodge letters of protest is ongoing, spearheaded by a group which includes Bob Cable and which is using Cable Airport as a pick-up and drop off point for protest forms. Nevertheless, it is anticipated that the city will survive the protest movement and the next step in the process of shuttering the Upland Fire Department will begin in June.
According to informed sources, the proposed annexation will at that point be moved into the courts. Some opponents of the annexation believe the annexation arrangement presented by the city and approved by the Local Agency Formation Committee is flawed in that the city did not have the authority to include San Antonio Heights in the annexation proposal. Litigation will likely ensue over this issue, one annexation opponent predicted, entailing an injunction preventing the closure of the fire department. Annexation opponents believe an ultimate determination by the courts that the annexation cannot proceed as drawn will be forthcoming, such that the city will need to once again apply for annexation involving the area within its city limits only. That legal action could convince the city council that proceeding with the annexation is inadvisable. Some annexation opponents believe that a council decision to persist with the annexation would have dire political consequences for those members who continue to support the annexation who must seek reelection in 2018 and could even form the basis of a recall effort against the members of the council who will not need to stand for reelection until 2020, namely Stone, Robinson and Elliott, if they continue to support it.
Efforts by the Sentinel, in the form of an email to Vagnozzi seeking a clarification with regard to the Brown Act issues attending the in-house council policies document signed off on during the May 8 council meeting, elicited no response by press time. –Mark Gutglueck

Oxford Prep Felled At Last By The Sins Of Its Talented & Greedy Founder

Oxford Charter Academy’s storied seven year-run as the most successful academic institution in San Bernardino County history will draw to a close next month, the California State Board of Education ruled last week.
Ultimately and ironically, the woman who built the charter school into what was the highest performing school in San Bernardino County consistently since the year it opened based upon her insightful and intensive educational formula and emphasis on basics and parental participation proved the major factor in the school’s demise.
Oxford’s death throes came not in Chino, the community where it had made such an indelible impression, but in Sacramento on May 11 of this year. The California Board of Education, torn between, on one hand, the stellar academic achievement of the thousands of students who had formerly attended the school and the hopeful expectations of the parents of the engaged and excelling current Oxford student body and on the other hand the abject greed bordering on criminality of the school’s founder, turned down a conditional extension of Oxford’s charter. The board then declined to vote on a final appeal of a string of chartering renewal rejections that began 14 months ago. “We have taken no action,” said California Board of Education Chairman Dr. Michael Krist. “That is the same as a denial.”
Oxfords precipitous plunge which began last year was no less stunning and was even more dramatic than its meteoric rise a half dozen years ago was spectacular.
In 2010, the Chino Valley Unified School District, at the urging of superintendent Wayne Joseph, entrusted Sue Roche with $3 million in taxpayer funds to make a go of creating a charter school. Joseph was willing to make that gamble based upon Roche’s record of achievement beginning in April 2003 as the principal at Rhodes Elementary School, which was consistently the highest-performing school in the Chino Valley Unified School District. After considering establishing the campus at the former Los Serranos Elementary School site in Chino Hills, the district opened Oxford Academy at the shuttered El Rancho Elementary School, located at the corner of C Street and Oaks Avenue in Chino. Utilizing Roche’s formula of a rich curriculum, old-fashioned book learning, an intensified classroom focus and heavy doses of parental involvement, Oxford exceeded all expectations.
In 2011, students at Oxford Preparatory Academy collectively outperformed their counterparts at every other elementary and junior high school in San Bernardino County, as measured by their scores on California’s Standard Testing And Reporting exams, which measured students’ progress toward achieving California’s state-adopted academic content standards in English–language arts, mathematics, science, and history/social science. They repeated the feat in 2012 and 2013. Oxford had an Academic Performance Index (API) score of 958 in 2011 and improved to 972 in 2012, a rating which put it safely within the top two percent of schools in the state. Enthusiasm for the Oxford undertaking was so high, that the number of student applicants to attend the school routinely outran the number of desks and classroom space for them by as many as 600 per year, requiring that the district hold a lottery as a means of granting admission to it. Joseph had to take the extraordinary step of forging a memorandum of understanding between the district and Oxford Preparatory, preventing the academy from poaching the district’s highest performing teachers.
Under California law, charter schools are sponsored by a public school district and are supported by taxpayer funds but are given autonomy, within certain parameters, to carry out their educational missions in compliance with each school’s declared educational goals and according to its curriculum approved by the sponsoring school district’s school board. Each charter school has its own internal corporate board, which is independent of the district board. Charter schools are not given indefinite license to operate, but are chartered for a defined number of years. To continue beyond that point they must have their charters extended.
In December 2011, the Chino Valley Unified School District’s board unanimously extended Oxford’s charter for five years, from 2012-13 through 2016-17.
In the meantime, Roche expanded the Oxford model, convincing the Capistrano Unified School District to sponsor another campus, the Oxford Preparatory Academy in Mission Viejo. Roche transferred Jason Watts, who had been the principal at Oxford Preparatory Academy in Chino to Mission Viejo, where he served as the Mission Viejo’s inaugural principal/chancellor.
At the Mission Viejo campus, students rang up an impressive 993 academic performance score on the 1,000-point maximum index during the first year the school was open.
In early 2015, with Oxford due to again seek an extension of its charter, the widespread assumption was that it would be routinely granted. But Joseph and other Chino Valley Unified officials, who had looked past the limelight of the academy’s spectacular scholastic accomplishments, had found that Roche had made a number of changes in the academy’s management structure by which Roche stood to profit – and profit handsomely. A first step Roche took to cash in on the institution she had created was done quietly and nonchalantly when in 2012 she incorporated Edlighten Learning Solutions, based in Yorba Linda and identified as a for-profit “charter management company.”
In 2014, Roche withdrew from the position of executive director of Oxford Preparatory’s corporate entity and promoted Barbara Black to that position, while assuming an undefined administrative role in the academy. She then arranged to have Oxford contract for the administrative services she was providing not directly with her but through Edlighten Learning Solutions. Upon Roche’s direction, Black had Oxford Charter Academy enter into a contractual arrangement to pay Edlighten $5.3 million to, essentially, employ Roche as the school’s contract administrator and operations director over the next four years and simultaneous employ a coterie of Roche’s associates in various capacities over the same timeframe.
When the issue of renewing Oxford’s charter came before the school board on March 17, 2016, Joseph dropped a bombshell on the community, recommending against the charter renewal. To support his position, Joseph presented an analysis of the charter renewal petition done by the accounting firm of Vavrinek, Trine & Day, which stated in its conclusion “the petition presents an unrealistic financial and operational plan.” Roche was, Joseph asserted, seeking to exploit the non-profit Oxford Preparatory Academy and line her own pockets. He accused her of creating and then engaging in a financial conflict of interest which would shortchange Oxford Preparatory’s students while enriching herself. Roche had engaged in “arrogance, overreach and greed” in the administration of the academy which victimized Oxford’s students and parents, Joseph told the school board, while employing “machinations” by which she fired dedicated educational professionals or otherwise advanced herself. Roche, the superintendent said, was cynically relying upon the reputation Oxford had attained and was manipulating the academy’s reliance on consultants, of which she was the primary one, to profit. He said that “renewal of the Oxford Preparatory Academy’s petition is not consistent with sound educational practice.” In compliance with Joseph’s recommendation, the school board declined to renew Oxford’s charter.
Initially, Oxford’s internal board asserted the school district’s action was unjustified but then regrouped and terminated its relationship with Roche and Edlighten in May 2016. It then appealed the district’s decision to the county school board and San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools Ted Alejandre. The county school board declined to take any action, maintaining the appeal pertained to a rejected application, and that the relationship to Roche and Edlighten no longer existed, thus making an appeal unwarranted. Oxford took a duel track approach, turning to the State Department of Education, seeking to get a charter from it, and submitted a revised application to the Chino Valley Unified Board. In the meantime, Alejandre had made a request for an audit.
The Fiscal Crisis & Management Team, an adjunct to the California Department of Education, carried out that audit and in early December delivered a 45-page audit summary and report, highlighting the conclusion that Roche’s action may have crossed the line into criminality. The audit cataloged how Roche created a system that involved Yorba Linda-based Edlighten and another entity, the Nevada corporation Educational Excellence, in dodging accountability through what was characterized as a “daisy chain” of payments between for-profit companies which employed her family, friends and associates. Roche purposefully hid or obscured financial transactions and operations in such a way that the auditors, not to mention Chino Valley Unified officials and even Oxford’s own in-house employees could not easily track them, according to the audit report. Ultimately, public school funding was diverted to bank accounts controlled by Roche and her associates, according to the audit. Oxford Preparatory, Edlighten and Educational Excellence employed several of Roche’s relatives, including her husband Terry, daughter Rebecca Baty, son Brian Roche and cousin Nick Califato, all of whom were paid through the organization. The Chino Valley Unified School Board, provided with an advance copy of the audit, rejected the renewed application in November.
Oxford officials were thus reduced to putting all of their eggs in the basket of hope represented by the petition for rechartering made to the California Board of Education. Having already parted ways with Roche and Edlighten, they attempted to further distance the academy from her. Several of the academy’s board members associated with her voluntarily resigned. The academy board adopted new bylaws and policies meant to prevent any future financial abuse. The academy moved to quantify the funds it believed had been misdirected by Roche, determining that Roche had been the recipient of $125,435.39 in payments that had not been authorized by the academy’s board. The academy succeeded in recovering $15,900 of that amount from Roche and sought full reimbursement of the remaining $109,535.39 from Roche. On March 17, it went even further, filing a lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court against Roche and Edlighten Learning Solutions. The lawsuit alleged breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and violations of business and professions code Section 17200.
Preparatory toward the California Board of Education’s ultimate determination in the matter, Oxford came before the California Board of Education’s Advisory Commission on Charter Schools on April 5, seeking to make a case that Oxford deserved to continue on. And indeed, Andrew Vestey, the newly appointed chairman of the board of Oxford Preparatory Academy and several other Oxford proponents, including board vice-chair Sandra Garner, made a compelling case that the academy’s board and management had remade the institution, keeping the academic elements that were so worth preserving and salvaging the core values that Oxford represents, while making crucial and salutary changes by supplanting the previous management at Oxford that had sullied its name. Those assertions and arguments were made in the face of Chino Valley Unified’s attorney, Steven Chidester, who belabored the difficulties Oxford had experienced and the results of the Fiscal Crisis & Management Team audit and referenced two different account and security loan agreements, each for one million dollars, between Oxford and the California Credit Union, signed by executive director Barbara Black on August 31, 2016, which he insisted raised doubts about Oxford’s claimed strong financial position. The advisory commission voted 4 to 3 in favor of making the chartering extension. According to the commission’s bylaws, however, such a recommendation cannot be made on a simple 4-3 majority vote, but must be done by a 5 to 2 margin or greater. Thus, the matter came before the California Board of Education on May 11 as something of an orphan.
Nevertheless, board member Sue Burr appeared to be disposed toward allowing Oxford to carry on. She expressed concern that Oxford had not been afforded the opportunity to pursue its appeal at the county level.
“That seems to greatly diminish the ability of charter petitioners to get a fair shot at the local level,” Burr said “and the whole process is supposed to rely on consideration at the district and then the county before they get it up here. So, I would just like to know what we can do about that to make them [the county superintendent of schools] assume their responsibilities.”
Denise Pascoe, who had been the chancellor of Oxford’s Mission Viejo campus and is now serving in the capacity of the interim director at Oxford in Chino, told the board, “Our student results outperform the local school district, county and state averages, with a student population of Hispanic 49.5 percent, Caucasian 22.1 percent, Asian 13.4 percent, African American 2.2 percent, Filipino 5.9 percent. We were the number one school in San Bernardino County.”
Vestey told the board that the Oxford parents and board members were appalled upon learning from the audit “what our founder had done. It was her job to protect our children and she used them to enrich herself. It was wrong, immoral and unforgivable. We knew we were about to lose something special because of one person’s greed if Oxford didn’t fix the problem. Parents, students and community members came together to say, ‘Enough.’ They wanted everyone who was responsible for this out. They demanded Barbara Black, the executive management team and the board – former board chair be removed. Three parents were now in charge of the board of directors. While this was new territory to us, the Fiscal Crisis & Management Team provided a roadmap to recovery. We hired experts to help us navigate the legal issues. We hired new auditors and a back office provider, Charter Impact, to help us unravel the mess the previous administration created. We removed anyone in positions of authority that led to the fiscal mismanagement or culture that allowed it to happen. The entire management team is gone. The entire board of directors is gone. Twelve people have been eliminated. The only people left were teachers, chancellors and classified staff and five strangers driven by one passion: to save a school for 1,200 innocent children who did nothing wrong. The new board put our skills to work to turn things around.
We knew we were starting from scratch. We had to rebuild our budgets from the ground up. We didn’t even have access to all of our bank accounts. The past management made all decisions at the top, and entirely controlled everything. Now we understood why. Over the next six months this board would hold 21 board meetings and approve 11 new policies and procedures to correct the concerns that led to the alleged fraud and misappropriation of funds. We also hired an independent third party, Panelli Management Company, to take over disbursement, budgeting, payroll and bookkeeping. In five months we eliminated all conflicts of interest, put internal controls in place to ensure something like this can never happen again. We also filed a lawsuit against Sue Roche and Edlighten Learning Systems to recover public funds, but the board wanted another layer of safeguards. We hired a state approved auditing firm to do monthly reviews of our finances and internal controls to ensure they were effective and our finances were clean. Two monthly reviews have been completed, and no concerns have been reported. All internal controls are in place. We’re in the early stages of litigation against Sue Roche and Edlighten Learning Systems. Once public funds have been recovered, this will be complete.”
Vestey continued, “Chino Unified continues to say our board lacks transparency. Our other authorizers disagree. Capistrano Unified and the Orange County Board of Education have commended us on our continuing dialogue. Consequently, neither has moved to revoke charters. Same governance, different outcomes. It has been clear since the beginning Chino is interested in one outcome: closing our school. Orange County wants to save them. While we have done everything that’s been asked of us, if this board decides additional changes are needed, we will accept any technical amendments or conditions to keep our school open. The California Department of Education believes the steps we have taken to resolve the concerns raised in the Fiscal Crisis & Management Team report are insufficient and we should be denied. However, that was prior to [steps we have taken to ensure] all remaining concerns have now been addressed. The organizational charter in our petition states our chancellors will report to our executive director. Currently our chancellors report to the managing director.”
Vestey noted that it has been charged that “Oxford’s nepotism policy allows too much latitude. We agree,” he said. “We changed this at our March 27 board meeting. The findings from three audits became our recovery plan to recover funds. The board has attended fraud training. Two signatures are now required for approval of any expense over $10,000. The signatures are the executive director and board chairman.”
“We have taken responsibility for the actions of Sue Roche,” Vestey said. “Please don’t judge us today by what she has done.”
Chino Valley Unified’s attorney, Steven Chidester, told the board, “The district asks that the board adopt the California Department of Education staff recommendation to deny the Oxford charter renewal based upon the California Department of Education’s finding the Oxford petitioners are not likely to successfully implement the programs set forth in the petition because of the history of fiscal mismanagement and because Oxford has presented an unrealistic operational plan and because Oxford’s budget cannot be deemed viable due to the potential of undiscovered contracts, transactions, extended liabilities, loans and obligations and the lack of valid audit reports. We believe the California Department of Education. We ask not because our district is anti-charter. In fact, our board voted twice to unanimously approve the Chino Oxford Academy in 2010 and again in 2012. And we ask not without concern for Oxford students. Instead we ask because we have statutory oversight over Oxford Preparatory Academy’s fiscal condition and as you have heard, the Fiscal Crisis & Management Team found the Oxford board administration, staff and Oxford’s culture permitted Oxford’s founder and former executive director to divert over $4.7 million of public funds. We ask also because we see the parents of Oxford students’ reaction. Our perspective on their reaction is that our district has accepted 129 Oxford student transfers this school year. Additionally our district has 449 Oxford students transfer requests for the 2017/18 school year.”
Grace Park, the assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction with the Chino Valley Unified School District said, “Oxford should not be renewed because even after seven-and-a-half years of operation the school’s demographics does not mirror the district’s. Neighboring schools from Oxford Preparatory Academy have a socioeconomically disadvantaged Latino population that ranges from 85 to 88 percent. At Oxford it is 62.9 percent. Even more concerning, English learner enrollment at schools neighboring, less than 2 miles away, from Oxford range from 25 to 43 percent. At Oxford, eight percent are English learners. Oxford Preparatory Academy perpetuates a culture of excluding underserved populations, and therefore should not be renewed.”
“We’re in an untenable position,” said board member Sue Burr. “We do not want to do anything to harm these lovely children who are having a fantastic educational experience by their own testimony and by the evidence we have.”
Board member Bruce Holaday, suggesting the students at the school were being scapegoated for Roche’s action, said, “I believe that this is a group of teachers, parents and kids who are benefiting from this charter school. I believe that wrongdoing did take place but I also believe that there has been an enormous effort to clean house and I trust that that has taken place. There may be another shoe that drops down the road.” Holaday then offered a motion to approve the school’s appeal, contingent upon an oversight protocol. But as was indicated during the discussion of the board, there was a belief that there could yet be lingering liability issues attending the Edlighten contracts. That Oxford had failed to fully determine what obligations might remain as a consequence of the Edlighten contracts gave several members of the board pause.
In the end, Oxford was unable to overcome the perception that it remained out of compliance with regard to a number of critical yardsticks and requirements. The school was felled by this perception, which was fueled by a school district audit showing Edlighten Learning Systems still had over $890,000 in Oxford funds to which it was absolutely not entitled, that the number of Latino students attending Oxford was smaller, percentagewise than the number of Latino students in the most geographically proximate schools within the Chino Valley Unified School District, that Oxford does not offer free or reduced price meals to its students within a district where 46.4 percent of students are so eligible and in a neighborhood where 72.5 percent of students attending elementary school are so eligible, that Oxford paid more than $212,000 in public charter school funds to settle claims by four former terminated oxford administrators and that the state audit determined that Oxford did not abide by industry accepted accounting principles.
Nicolasa Sandoval, said, “I really appreciate the heart, the passion of the educators, the students, the volunteers, the board members of this organization. I also am grateful for this option that’s being presented by member Holaday but I still believe there are too many unresolved issues that have yet to be addressed, too many unknowns. And even with these conditions that are being proposed I still don’t feel like I can support that renewal or the motion.”
On a 4 to 6 vote, the motion died, and with it, Oxford Preparatory Academy.

Nearing End Of Colonies Case, DA & AG Depending On Postmus & Aleman

In the twentieth week of the Colonies Partners Lawsuit Settlement Public Corruption Trial, the case’s star witness, former county supervisor/assessor Bill Postmus concluded his testimony upon his tenth day on the witness stand. He was immediately followed by his one-time protégé, Adam Aleman. In tandem, Postmus and Aleman provided the two juries hearing the case with more of the substance contained in the criminal complaint than all 33 previous witnesses heard during the more than four months of proceedings since the trial began in January. Much of Postmus’ testimony was problematic, for not only the defense but the prosecution, as well. Indeed, his first two-and-a-half hours on the stand while he was under direct examination by San Bernardino County Supervising Deputy District Attorney Lewis Cope played out as an encapsulation of the case, in particular that portion of the case against defendants Jeff Burum and Jim Erwin. But under subsequent cross examination by Burum’s attorney Jennifer Keller and to a lesser extent Erwin’s attorney Raj Maline, Postmus backtracked considerably, offering statements that fell slightly short of a recantation but nevertheless at least partially undercut elements of the prosecution’s narrative and its overarching theme. Still, Keller’s impeachment of Postmus was based
upon demonstrating the unreliability of his memory, which was ravaged by nearly a decade of drug abuse. This, paradoxically, undercut her own success when she wrung from Postmus statements that favored the defense, especially after the other member of the prosecution team, California Supervising Deputy Attorney General Melissa Mandel, later questioned Aleman with regard to those same issues. Aleman, his memory unhampered by the cloud of drug use, offered recollections of meetings, events and statements with a crispness and clarity that were far more favorable to the prosecutors and damning to the defense.
The criminal case against the four defendants contained in the 29-count grand jury indictment handed down in May 2011 alleges Colonies Partners co-managing principal Jeff Burum, after four years of being unable to resolve a lawsuit his development company had brought against the county over flood control issues at the Colonies at San Antonio and Crossroads Colonies residential and commercial subdivisions in northeast Upland, conspired with former deputy sheriffs’ union president Jim Erwin to extort Postmus, the then-chairman of the board of supervisors, and the then-vice chairman of the board of supervisors, Biane, by threatening to reveal in mailers to be sent to voters throughout the county highly derogatory personal information about both of them. After Postmus and Biane acceded to this blackmail and voted with then-supervisor Gary Ovitt in November 2006 to approve the $102 million lawsuit settlement, according to the indictment, Burum then provided Postmus, Biane, Erwin and Mark Kirk, who was then serving as Ovitt’s chief of staff, with separate $100,000 bribes in the form of donations made to political action committees they had created or otherwise controlled. Kirk’s bribe, the prosecution alleges, was provided to him by the Colonies Partners in return for having delivered Ovitt’s vote. Erwin, who was not employed by the county at the time of his efforts related to the extortion, was, however, employed as assistant county assessor in 2007 when the $100,000 donation to his political action committee was made.
Under direct examination on May 1 through May 3, Postmus offered testimony that was in lockstep with the indictment. In the latter half of 2006, Postmus testified, Erwin, working on behalf of Burum and the Colonies Partners had threatened to expose elements of both his and Biane’s personal lives in an effort to persuade them to support the settlement. And Burum had promised to support him in future political and business endeavors once the settlement was out of the way, he said. Moreover, Postmus said, he believed the $102 million paid out to the Colonies Partners was more – ridiculously more – than the development company was due. The threats and promises of reward, he said, along with the desire to put the whole thing behind him, he testified, prompted the settlement. And after the settlement was in place, Postmus testified, the Colonies Partners had come through with two separate $50,000 donations to political action committees he had control over.
Under cross examination that began on May 3 and continued through May 4, picked up again on May 8 and continued on May 9, defense attorneys, primarily Keller, established that Postmus had engaged in a prodigious use of drugs, primarily methamphetamine, throughout the entire timeframe relevant to the events and overt acts alleged in the indictment, and that his recall of crucial events in many cases was spotty. Keller took special aim at the prosecution’s assertion there was a clear understanding before the settlement was voted upon that the alleged bribes – the $100,000 contributions to the various political action committees – had been promised to the recipients. Keller prompted from Postmus testimony that there had never been mention of any specific dollar amount in terms of the monetary support Burum might offer him if the settlement were to be effectuated and he testified that he did not learn that the Colonies Partners was going to be making the donations to his political action committees and those of the others until after the settlement had been approved. And Keller further elicited from Postmus statements to the effect that settling with the Colonies Partners over the flood control matter was “the right thing” to do, given that the county had suffered a setback in court, had accumulated well over $6 million in attorney’s fees to defend the suit and that the Colonies Partners were asserting the company had sustained $300 million in damages, which the county might become liable for if it did not prevail upon appeal. . While it had been widely anticipated that Keller was going to utterly savage Postmus through her cross examination, she instead sought to selectively discredit elements of his testimony on direct examination by her framing of questions aimed at his answers to Cope’s questions rather than at him. Indeed, Keller cultivated to an extent a rapport with the former politician who was being called upon by the prosecution to provide the key testimony around which the theory of her client’s guilt in having corrupted the San Bernardino County political process at the highest level more than a decade ago is contexted. Using that rapport and the simultaneous assertion that Postmus’ drug use and the legal travails he was going through left him in a fragile mental state, she suggested more than once with her questions that the investigators were seeding him with “false memories” and “false beliefs.” Playing audio recordings of Postmus’ interrogations by district attorney’s office investigators, she advanced the theory that the false memories were later harvested full bloom during his 2011 grand jury testimony to falsely implicate the others.
On Tuesday of this week, Postmus was back on the witness stand for recross examination by Keller. She again questioned him with regard to the two $50,000 donations Burum made to his political action committees after the settlement. Postmus told Keller that at the time he did not perceive that money as a kickback or a bribe given to him in return for approving the $102 million settlement.
Postmus and Erwin had been criminally charged in a conspiracy, extortion and bribery scheme relating to the settlement in February 2010, fifteen months prior to the indictment of Burum, Biane, Erwin and Kirk. Postmus and Erwin had initially pleaded not guilty to those charges, but in March 2011 Postmus had entered into a plea deal with prosecutors, agreeing to turn state’s evidence and cooperate with authorities in offering information and testimony against the others. Keller on Tuesday angled with her questions to show that the statements he made implicating the others during his exchanges with the district attorney’s office investigators in February and March of 2011 were a product of drug use and the false suggestions made by those investigators.
Keller used transcripts of those interrogations or recordings of them to demonstrate that to some extent, Postmus had been either resistant, or tentative in his answers, to questions relating to the participation of others in the conspiracy and bribery aspects of the alleged scheme during his initial exchanges with the investigators but that his responses to those questions grew far more consistent with the accusatory tone of the questions in the later interrogations and in his testimony before the grand jury.
In this way, Keller was providing the jurors with an object demonstration of exactly how suggestible Postmus had become, getting him to either contradict or greatly diminish testimony he had provided within the last several days. Under questioning by Keller, Postmus said he did not discuss the Colonies litigation with Burum during a trade mission trip to China in September 2006, whereas in his first days of testimony on the witness stand two weeks previously on May 1 and May 2 as well as in his 2011 grand jury testimony, he maintained Burum had harangued him about the case. Keller further sought to make inroads on Postmus’ testimony that Burum told him he would provide him with financial support either to continue his political career or for his endeavors in the private sector but not before the litigation between the Colonies Partners and the county had been resolved. Referencing his first interrogation session with district attorney’s office investigators Bob Schreiber and Hollis Randles in February 2011 where Postmus had mentioned no conditions with regard to the future support Burum was promising him, Keller suggested the prosecution team had manipulated Postmus to get from him a version of events to match the theories they were developing.
“You now understand that that narrative that developed over the course of the those five interviews … was an example of a false belief?” Keller asked him.
“Yes,” Postmus said, indicating he was being “pushed” by the investigators.
Indeed, Postmus came across as vulnerable to being “pushed” in whatever direction his questioner at the moment desired.
As if to assist Keller in her effort to propound the false evidence/planted memories/faulty memory theory the defense was pursuing, Postmus gratuitously expounded upon how during the latter phase of his drug use he had gravitated to “huffing” inhalants, i.e., breathing in volatile vapors or pressurized household and industrial chemicals and aerosols for their intoxicating effect because methamphetamine had lost its intensity for him. He volunteered his belief that huffing had been even more damaging to his body and memory than methamphetamine. With the intensity of the questions being asked of him unrelenting, Postmus time and again sought refuge in non-answers he was able to provide based upon his failing memory.
During his redirect examination of Postmus, Cope sought to use Postmus’ porous memory to the prosecution’s advantage. Just as Keller had, Cope asked questions that were augmented with exhibits in the form of documents or transcripts, succeeding in delivering up for the juries a demonstration that Postmus had indeed been engaged with the Colonies Partners during the ongoing litigation with the county in a way that suggested he was militating more on behalf of the development company than he was representing the county as its top elected official. Cope referenced a statement Postmus had released immediately after Judge Christopher Warner issued his statement of intended decision following a bench trial he had heard relating to a portion of that litigation. Warner’s decision had been favorable to the Colonies Partners. Postmus’ statement said in part: “While the decision is preliminary at this point and the possibility of an appeal still exists, I fear the county’s best opportunity to resolve this danger of financial risk to the taxpayers has likely already passed us by.”
Cope established from Postmus that he had not actually written the statement, which presaged the county’s eventual settling of the lawsuit on terms favorable to the Colonies Partners. When Postmus sought to deflect questions about his involvement in preparing the press release and cooperation with the Colonies Partners in achieving the necessary leverage from Warner’s decision to get a settlement of the lawsuit on terms favorable to the company, Postmus sought to duck the questions by pleading a lack of memory. Cope, however confronted Postmus with invoices that the Colonies Partners’ then-publicist, Patrick O’Reilly, had submitted to Burum which showed that just a few days in advance of Warner’s announcement of his statement of intended decision, O’Reilly on July 25 and July 26, 2006 had numerous phone calls with Postmus relating to drafting a “press release.”
“Do you recall speaking to Mr. O’Reilly about this press release?” Cope asked Postmus.
“No, sir,” responded Postmus. “I’m not saying it didn’t happen. I just don’t have a memory of it. I do know I did meet and talk to Mr. Burum and I did meet with Mr. O’Reilly. I just don’t remember the specifics, sir.”
Facing Postmus on the witness stand, Keller had made a tactical decision that had overbearing strategic implications for the case. Rather than “burn him to the ground” as the prosecution had been planning from the outset of the trial, Keller instead worked with Postmus to draw from him selected information that undercut the prosecution and advanced the defense’s contention that the Colonies Partners were involved in fully justifiable litigation against the county over obstructions to its effort to develop its property, and that the $102 million settlement to close out that litigation was a reasonable denouement given the proof marshaled by the Colonies Partners at trial and the county’s actual liability which might have been as high as $300 million or more. This was the counter-narrative Keller propounded, one that she suggested was so compelling that even Postmus, in his drug-addled state, could understand.
But as the end of Postmus’ ten full or partial days on the witness was nearing, Cope had begun to adjust the prosecution’s approach by matching Keller in utilizing Postmus’ poor memory or claims thereof during his examination of Postmus to further the prosecution’s case. When Postmus departed from the witness box and his one-time protégé and close political associate Adam Aleman replaced him, the task of taking advantage of Postmus’ elliptical memory to further the case against the defendants fell to California Supervising Deputy Attorney General Melissa Mandel.
During her questioning of Aleman on his first day on the stand May 17, Mandel did just that. Postmus in his testimony had said that there had been only limited contact between Aleman, who had worked as a field representative in Postmus’ office when he was supervisor and then was named assistant assessor when Postmus in 2007 assumed the assessor’s post following his election thereto in 2006. Postmus had testified that while negotiations over the Colonies lawsuit settlement were ongoing in 2006, he had met numerous times with Burum at the Juice It Up! or Starbucks outlets in Rancho Cucamonga, as well as once or twice at Burum’s office in Rancho Cucamonga and perhaps on one or two occasions at some undisclosed location in the High Desert near Postmus’ then-home in Hesperia. Postmus acknowledged having discussions relating to the lawsuit settlement with Burum. At only one or perhaps two of those meetings, Postmus said, was Aleman present. He recalled that Aleman, who had proficiency with handheld communications devices, had provided Burum some assistance with a Blackberry device that was either broken or malfunctioning. In this way, Postmus seemed to indicate, Aleman would not be a reliable source of information with regard to what had been communicated between Postmus and Burum.
When Mandel asked Aleman about his contacts with Burum in early 2006, he contradicted his former boss and said he had met with Burum in the presence of Postmus “six to 12 times between January and June of 2006.” Those meeting had taken place, he said, at various restaurants, including El Torito and Acapulco, as well as at the Red Hill County Club. Aleman also said that he and Postmus had encountered Burum, who was in the presence of his future attorney, Stephen Larson, at a Republican Women’s event during that time frame.
“During those meetings, was the Colonies settlement the primary subject discussed?” Mandel asked.
“It was probably the only subject of conversation,” Aleman said. Aleman said, “Mr. Burum was very cordial. He was actually very encouraging to Bill.”
Mandel asked if Burum “made any statement about Paul Biane?”
“He was very frustrated with Paul,” Aleman said, recalling that Burum said he had “got him elected. He had gotten rid of Jon Mikels [whom Biane defeated in the 2002 election for Second District supervisor]. He was frustrated that things were dragging along, and all Paul cared about was his political aspirations. He said, ‘Paul is pussyfooting around.”
“Did Mr. Burum also make a statement about his [Biane’s] upcoming campaign?” Mandel asked.
“He said he would spend everything he needed to to take Mr. Biane out politically,” Aleman said.
Mandel asked if Burum and Postmus had any discussions about campaign donations. Aleman responded that Burum specifically” indicated that “as soon as the Colonies settlement is over everyone would be taken care of politically.”
Burum had predetermined the value of the litigation settlement, Aleman testified. “Mr. Burum was emphatically looking for over $100 million,” Aleman said.
“Was there a time, any time, when you were present when Mr. Biane made statements about the Colonies lawsuit?” Mandel asked.
“Yes,” said Aleman, who indicated that some of Biane’s concerns about the settlement discussions related to how they might bear upon Measure P, an initiative Biane sponsored in 2006 to raise the pay of the county supervisors. Mandel asked what those concerns were.
“There was just concern for the intimidation factor,” Aleman said. “Mr. Biane especially was worried about his image and the ramifications the settlement would have on his future political aspirations. He didn’t want to be the go-to guy on the settlement.”
As a consequence, Aleman said, Postmus “was being groomed to take over Paul’s position to be the point person to get the settlement done.”
Mandel took up with Aleman whether Postmus, during his contact with Burum in China in 2005, had been extensively lobbied by Burum with regard to the settlement. Prosecutors have asserted that was indeed the case. The defense has disputed that.
“Did he [Postmus] text you from China?” Mandel asked.
Aleman said he had.
Mandel noted that in his testimony before the grand jury, “You mentioned he told you that Jeff was putting pressure on him about the Colonies settlement. Is that your recollection?”
“Absolutely,” said. Aleman.
“And you mentioned he told you this while he was actually still in China.”
Yes,” said Aleman.
Mandel obtained from Aleman a double reassurance that he had remained in communication with Postmus by text while the latter was in China and followed that up with double and triple reassurance that Postmus conveyed to him in that communication he was discussing the Colonies matter with Burum.
“Did Mr. Postmus text you about conversation relating to the Colonies case?” she asked.
“Yes,” Aleman replied.
“Did he indicate who he was having those conversations with?” she asked.
“Mr. Burum,” Aleman said.
“Do you recall what Mr. Postmus texted you about the Colonies case”?
“Yes,” said. Aleman.
“Did Mr. Postmus say anything about pressure?” Mandel asked.
“Yes,” said Aleman.
“What did he say about this pressure?” Mandel asked.
“That he felt pressure to get this settlement done,” said Aleman.
“Did he say who the pressure was coming from?” Mandel asked.
“Mr. Burum,” said Aleman.
Aleman testified that he, Postmus, and Biane were all aligned politically and active in the Republican Party. Postmus and Biane at that time were the chairman and vice chairman of the San Bernardino County Republican Central Committee. “We were very aggressive in strategizing city council races, various district races,” Aleman said. “I knew Mr. Burum, He was a large donor and influential member of the community on the west side of the county.” He said, “Mr. Erwin was a large supporter of Mr. Postmus. He helped him get elected. Mr. Erwin was actually the head of the most powerful political organization in the county, the Safety [Employees] Benefit Association. They have large political coffers.” He said that Erwin “was very nice to me” and that during his initial affiliation with Postmus he had met with Erwin on a number of occasions.
Of Mark Kirk, Aleman said, “Mr. Kirk was supportive of Mr. Postmus. Mr. Kirk had aspirations. He was looking to seek office as well.”
Of Supervisor Gary Ovitt, to whom Kirk was chief of staff, Aleman said, “He was a rubber stamp of what Mr. Kirk wanted. Mr. Ovitt deferred most of the decision making to Mark Kirk.” Aleman said that when Kirk formed his West End Young Republicans group, Kirk had asked him to join.
In his testimony, Aleman provided the most comprehensive information yet with regard to the extortion element of the case. The original extortion charges have been dismissed, though the narrative behind those charges remains as a central part of the prosecution’s theory. It was political “hit mailers” targeting Postmus and Biane, dwelling on the former’s drug addiction and homosexuality and the latter’s financial difficulties, in the months before the settlement vote that induced the two to come to terms with the Colonies Partners, the prosecution maintains. Those mailers were never sent. There have been allusions to the mailers in Cope’s opening statements and in the testimony of previous witnesses, but none of those witnesses saw any such mailers. Aleman, however, said that in 2006 Erwin showed him “mockups” of several anti-Biane hit pieces. He testified that he had gone to the office of the Safety Employees Benefit Association, where Erwin was then the executive director, and that Erwin showed him the mailers, which were either printed out or were in PDF form and displayed on his office computer monitor. Two of the mailers, he said, made an issue of Biane’s personal debt and a third implied that Biane was a problem drinker. Depicted on one of the mailers, Aleman said, was “bundles of money wadded up or in rubber bands; there was another with a kid who had an ‘L,’ [formed with his right index finger and thumb against his forehead] like loser, and there was another one that referenced alcohol,” Aleman recalled. In response to Mandel’s inquiry, Aleman said Erwin told him “that Mr. Postmus needed to get this settlement settled, or they would start harming Mr. Postmus’ and Mr. Biane’s political careers.” Aleman said he relayed the message to Postmus, who took it as a warning that if the settlement was not effectuated his homosexuality would be exposed. Aleman said Postmus reacted by saying, “‘Look what they’re doing to Paul. I’m next if I don’t get this done.’”
There had been a tentative indication that Mandel might conclude with her direct examination of Aleman by Thursday afternoon, May 18. That did not occur however, as there was a delay in the proceedings when one of the jurors on the panel hearing the case against Erwin came forward to tell the court that she and other members of Erwin’s jury, which is seated furthest forward in the courtroom and closest to the jury box and therefore has an unobstructed view of the defense table, had seen Burum make what they thought might be an inappropriate gesture to witness Adam Aleman during his testimony on Wednesday. Erwin has a jury separate from the jury hearing the case against Burum, Biane and Kirk because some testimony that is admissible against Erwin is not admissible against the others.
Judge Michael Smith first inquired of Cope, Mandel, the bailiff and Aleman if they had noted any gestures from Burum. They said they had not. Judge Smith then brought the entirety of Erwin’s jury into the courtroom separately and asked what each had seen. Two said they had seen Burum put his hand to the side of his face, but were unclear as to whether the defendant had merely been propping his jaw up as is typical of people forced to remain seated in one position for a long period of time. Most of the jurors said they had noted nothing out of the ordinary. A total of six of the 12 jurors and five alternates said they had noted facial expressions and in some cases verbal reactions by not just Burum but other members of the defense camp to some of the testimony. One, a retired school teacher, said she considered some of the reactions to be disrespectful and inappropriate. Smith asked of those jurors who observed the histrionics if they might, given that Erwin is accused of aiding and abetting Burum in a crime, be influenced in rendering a verdict with regard to Erwin because of Burum’s actions. All said they would not. Erwin was not in court that day, having been excused to attend his son’s graduation. His attorney, Raj Maline, indicated that he was contemplating filing a motion for mistrial.
Burum made a sworn statement to the effect that he had not in any way made gestures at, to, or toward Aleman. Smith called Erwin’s jury into the courtroom and warned them that they should not be discussing anything that goes on within the courtroom amongst themselves before deliberations begin. He said if they observe any inappropriate conduct by defendants and attorneys, they should inform the bailiff. Outside the presence of the juries, Judge Smith told the defendants and their advocates that they should carefully consider that their behavior in the courtroom and courthouse is being observed by the juries and that how they conduct themselves could have an impact on the verdicts.
Later that day, Stephen Larson, Burum’s attorney said, “Mr Burum is innocent, and even the prosecution’s star witness confirmed that. The stress of a six-month trial, after six years of litigation for crimes he didn’t commit, is inconceivable. Having said that, he recognizes that some of his reactions may have been misinterpreted and will better comport himself moving forward.”
Aleman is due back on the witness stand Monday morning to undergo further direct examination, at which point it is anticipated that Mandel will introduce what has been referred to as the case’s so-called “smoking gun,” or the nearest thing to it – a chain of text messages between Postmus and Aleman. Cope failed in getting this exhibit before the jury previously, when Smith disallowed its display, after the defense objected and it was examined by Postmus on the witness stand and he claimed to have no recollection of it. During an on-the-record discussion outside the presence of the jury last week, Cope indicated that the text exchange features a reassurance given by Postmus to Aleman, who was fretting about real or potential legal repercussions relating to either the Colonies lawsuit settlement or other activity Postmus and Aleman had engaged in, that Burum had promised “to take care” of them.
Only a half day of testimony is scheduled for Monday, at which point the case will break for another week. Cross examination of Aleman thus may not begin until the trial is again in session on May 29. It is anticipated that Keller will handle the cross examination of Aleman and she will be far more ruthless with him than she was with Postmus. On June 30, 2008, Aleman was arrested and charged with vandalizing county property, altering public documents and perjury. In October 2008, Aleman through his attorney approached the district attorney’s office, offering information of his own relating to what he knew of wrongdoing within the county, including information with regard to blackmail and bribery related to the Colonies lawsuit settlement. He undertook to assist investigators in gathering further evidence relating to his allegations, including making surreptitious audio recordings of those he said were involved. A year after his arrest, Aleman entered a guilty plea to the four felony counts against him. His sentence is being held in abeyance, pursuant to his continuing cooperation in the prosecution case against Burum, Biane, Erwin and Kirk. Keller will attempt to establish, the Sentinel has learned, that Aleman has fabricated his statements implicating the defendants in an effort to engineer for himself leniency in his own criminal case.   -Mark Gutglueck

East Mojave Under Increasingly Heavy Siege By Outsiders & Plunderers

California’s eastern Mojave Desert is coming under increasingly aggressive attack, with outside interests moving to plunder its resources while simultaneously seeking to exploit it as a repository for its detritus. Some others who value it as a playground nevertheless exhibit a willingness to use it with abandon, in a manner that shows little regard for the consequences of their activity. And whatever check on the region’s steady erosion that was put into place by governmental action over the last several decades is now being compromised if not outright undone by the current administration in Washington, D.C., which is inimical to the preservation designs of environmentalists.
The Mojave Desert is a vast expanse of territory, covering 47,877 square miles, stretching from Los Angeles and Kern counties in the west and extending eastward into southern Nevada and Arizona and to a small portion of Utah at its furthest northeastern tip. It is bordered by the Great Basin Desert to its north and the Sonoran Desert to its south and east. Its topographical boundaries include the Tehachapi Mountains to the west, and the San Gabriel Mountains and San Bernardino Mountains to the south. Its boundaries are visibly demarked by the presence of its indicator species, Joshua trees, which are native only to the Mojave Desert. The Mojave supports over 1,800 species of plants.
California’s east Mojave is a subset of the Mojave Desert. Lying primarily in San Bernardino County, it is further removed from the large Southern California population centers of the greater Los Angeles area. It thus contains substantial swathes and pockets of, if not pristine land, areas that have remained relatively untouched, let alone developed, including canyons with rare plants seen no where else in the world and species only now being discovered.
Forces outside San Bernardino County have come to covet many of the East Mojave’s assets.
One of those coveted assets is water. Despite the fact that for the last century, the Mojave Desert receives less than 13 inches of rain a year, many of the aquifers below it have remained untapped, such that they are vast warehouses of tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of acre-feet of ancient and pristine water. Beginning in the 1890s, entities from as far away as Chicago, Minneapolis and San Francisco hatched designs to capture the Mojave Desert’s water and convey it by means of aqueducts or pipelines to Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside or lower San Bernardino counties. Most of those efforts failed when met by the opposition of farmers and landowners out in the desert. Others went off the rails when the practical and logistical difficulties of what was being proposed manifested. Deep-lying Mojave Desert water became less of a priority when Metropolitan Los Angeles had its thirst slaked by other water piracies, such as Los Angeles’s rape of the Owens Valley perpetrated by Fred Eaton and Edward Mulholland and consummated in 1913 when Los Angeles began its perpetual draining, which has now gone on for more than a century, of Owens Lake in Inyo County or Mulholland’s last major undertaking, which he did not live to see to its 1941 completion, the Colorado River Aqueduct.
But with the explosive growth of the last half of the 20th Century, more and more water was needed to support the burgeoning population and expanding industry in Southern California. In 1997, the Metropolitan Water District bought into a proposal made by Keith Brackpool, a transplanted Englishman, to divert up to 1.5 million acre-feet of what he called “surplus” Colorado River water to Cadiz in the East Mojave, and “store” that water by pumping it into the water table there. In “dry years” Blackpool proposed allowing the Metropolitan Water District to extract water from the aquifer and conduct it through a 35-mile pipeline that was to be constructed between Cadiz and the Metropolitan Water District’s existing Colorado River aqueduct. Brackpool had put himself into position to make the proposal by creating the Los Angeles-based Cadiz Land Company, which purchased 4,000 acres of land in the desert near Cadiz, sunk a well there, and began growing organic vegetables and fruits, including beans, melons and tomatoes. Throughout its existence, the Cadiz farming operation failed to operate at a profit. But in the meantime, Brackpool was able to make an assertion, based upon the irrigation of the crops at the Cadiz farm, to water rights from the Cadiz/Fenner aquifer. Brackpool packaged a deal by which he would sell as much as 60,000 acre-feet of the native groundwater and Colorado River water mix to the Metropolitan Water District. He greased the way for the project’s approval by providing $235,000 in campaign contributions to then-California Governor Gray Davis. Five years of environmental studies resulted, in August 2002, with the federal government giving approval to the project. In October 2002, however, the proposal was rejected by the Metropolitan Water District’s board of directors after conservationists raised concerns over possible environmental damage. The rejection of the project led to expensive litigation between the Cadiz Land Company and the Metropolitan Water District.
The concept lay dormant for six years but in 2008, the Cadiz Land Company, by then known as Cadiz, Inc., revived the plan in modified form, emphasizing less the drawing of water from the Colorado River and instead proposing to obtain the water from sources feeding the area’s dry lakes that are subject to evaporation. The revived project, to entail the sinking of 34 wells into the desert and construction of a 44-mile pipeline to meet up with the aqueduct carrying Colorado River water to the Los Angeles and Orange County metropolitan areas, was given a tentative budget of $536.25 million. Cadiz, Inc. first arranged to find potential buyers of the water, lining up the Santa Margarita Water District, in Orange County; the Three Valleys Water District, which provides water to the Pomona Valley, Walnut Valley, and Eastern San Gabriel Valley; the Golden State Water Company, which serves several communities in Southern California, including Claremont; Suburban Water Systems, which serves Covina, West Covina and La Mirada; and the Jurupa Community Services District, which serves Mira Loma in Riverside County. To obtain environmental certification of the project, Cadiz, Inc. turned not to the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, but to the Santa Margarita Water District, which was to be the largest recipient of the water. The Santa Margarita Water District is the second largest water district in Orange County, serving the affluent communities of Rancho Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo, Coto de Caza, Las Flores, Ladera Ranch and Talega.
A contingent of San Bernardino County residents protested the Santa Margarita Water District’s assumption of lead agency status on the project, officially known as the Cadiz Valley Water Conservation and Recovery Project, based on the considerations that the district lies 217 miles from the Cadiz Valley across the county line from San Bernardino County. And San Bernardino County could have contested that arrangement in court, but Cadiz, Inc. effectively moved to block that challenge from occurring, providing then-San Bernardino County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, in whose First District and the Cadiz and Fenner valleys and much of the East Mojave were located, with $48,100 in political donations as he attempted to leapfrog from his position as supervisor to Congress. In the 2012 primary, Mitzelfelt proved unsuccessful in his effort to capture outright or get into the 8th Congressional District race, placing a distant fifth among thirteen candidates. In reaching for the Congressional brass ring, Mitzelfelt had to forego seeking reelection as supervisor, consigning him to leave office later that year. He was still in office as a lame duck when on July 31, 2012, the Santa Margarita Water District’s Board of Directors certified the environmental impact report for the Cadiz Water project, clearing the way for Los Angeles-based Cadiz, Inc. to extract an average of 50,000 acre-feet of water per year – more than 16 billion gallons of groundwater annually – for the next century from the eastern Mojave Desert and send it via pipeline westward to Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties.
Over the next five years, a succession of environmental challenges and lawsuits delayed the implementation of the project. Cadiz, Inc. has succeeded in overcoming all of those lawsuits or having them dismissed. The only snag holding up the project at this point is a 2015 U.S. Bureau of Land Management decision that Cadiz, Inc. could not use the existing federal railroad right-of-way for the water pipeline it intends to construct to convey water drawn from the aquifer to the Colorado River Aqueduct. This carried with it the requirement that the company go through a federal environmental review, under the the National Environmental Policy Act, delaying the project and adding to its expense. In March, however, the Donald Trump Administration, in the form of a memo from a Bureau of Land Management acting assistant director, revoked two of the legal bases for the agency’s 2015 decision.
At issue is the degree to which railroads are at liberty to allow their rights-of-way to be used for non-railroad purposes. A railroad right-of-way can accommodate a water pipeline if the water is to be used by the railroad, but the use of steam engines went out of vogue last century. In 1989, an Interior Department solicitor concluded that an 1875 railroad law allowed railroads to authorize other uses without Department of the Interior approval. A subsequent solicitor’s opinion altered that conclusion to state other uses had to “derive from or further”a railroad purpose. Both solicitors’ memos held that an involved process was required to determine whether secondary uses and what furthered railroad purposes. The California Bureau of Land Management office later found that “conveyance of water for public consumption is not a railroad purpose.”
Based on the March memo, which did not specifically note the Cadiz project, Cadiz, Inc. is asking the federal government for permission to proceed. Environmental groups, however, are at the ready to file further court action based upon the underlying law.
At the same time that elements in Orange County are on the verge of seizing the East Mojave’s water, other Orange County interests are militating to bury over 200 tons of radioactive debris, including uranium and plutonium, from the now decommissioned San Onofre nuclear plant in the East Mojave Desert.
In San Onofre, Southern California Edison began operating a Westinghouse pressurized water nuclear reactor, known as Unit 1, on January 1, 1968 and kept it under operation until November 30, 1992, at which point it was decommissioned and dismantled. Units 2 and 3, built in the 1970s, respectively went online August 8, 1983 and April 1, 1984 and were initially licensed until 2022. In 2012, after Edison had over the two previous years replaced at a cost of $671 million the steam generators in both remaining reactors with improved Mitsubishi steam generators, it was discovered, in the aftermath of a small radioactive leak largely inside the plants containment shell, that those generators were defective. When upon investigation the two replacement steam generators were found to show premature wear on over 3,000 tubes in 15,000 places, plant officials pledged not to restart the plant until the causes of the tube leak and tube degradation were understood. Neither unit was ever restarted and the entire plant is now to be completely decommissioned.
Within San Clemente wealthy members of that community as well as outlying areas in Orange and San Diego counties are exerting tremendous pressure on the city, county, state and federal officials to ensure that the units are entirely dismantled and all of the remnants of the plant, including its remaining and spent nuclear fuel, are removed. A plan along these lines that has been hatched is one by an El Cajon-based group, Citizens’ Oversight, to bury the nuclear waste near Fishel, located in the East Mojave Desert in San Bernardino County.
Proponents of that plan hope to advance it to the status of a fait accompli without alarming desert residents or San Bernardino County officials, thereby avoiding any meaningful opposition. Orange County residents and officials have developed a code by which they refer to the East Mojave area near Fishel as “Arizona” or “the desert.”
Despite that cunning effort at secrecy and stealth, the Sentinel, has obtained a document generated by Citizens Oversight which states, “Moving the spent nuclear fuel away from San Onofre is essential to minimize our overall risk. But where to put it? Keeping it in California can minimize hoops to jump through. Our proposal: near Fishel, CA 92277 [in] San Bernardino County.”
Under “Key features” the document states with regard to the Fishel site, “Population: 0. Nearest improved property: More than 13 miles away (water pumping plant). Nearest private improved property: Cadiz about 20 miles away. Nearest larger cities: More than 50 miles away (Lake Havasu, Colorado River. Twentynine Palms is about 47 miles away from the site, three mountain ranges away. Twentynine Palms/Yucca Valley and Needles are the minor civil divisions. They border on the Arizona and California railroad line.”
The document further touts Fishel as an ideal burial spot because it is “on the Arizona and California railroad line about 21 miles from Cadiz where it connects to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad” and that the “total distance from the Barstow Burlington Northern Santa Fe switchyard is 100 miles to Cadiz, then 21 miles to Fishel.” Moreover, Fishel is, according to the document, “near a road” and “not close to any fault lines,” as well as “away from salty air [making] chloride induced stress corrosion cracking less likely.”
Putting the nuclear waste out into San Bernardino County’s desert makes sense, the Citizens’ Oversight document maintains, because Fishel is “away from densely populated areas [while there are] “more than 8.4 million near San Onofre” and in the desert there is “no tsunami risk.” Furthermore, according to the document, there is “No mega freeway nearby as we have at San Onofre.” In Fishel, the document states, the eastern Mojave is “very hot and dry with very little degradation over time due to the environment.”
The document also notes that the area falls within the 8th Congressional District, represented by “Paul Cook, a Republican from Yucca Valley.” The document implies having Cook accept San Bernardino County’s role as a repository for the nuclear waste will not represent a challenge. In 2013, shortly after he was elected to Congress, Cook as a Congressional candidate called for a federal review of the Cadiz project. The following year, however, he confounded environmentalists when he wrote a letter to Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, recommending against any further environmental review of the project. Republicans in Orange County believe Cook will side with them in allowing the use of the Mojave Desert for nuclear waste disposal.
Motorcyclists who have long used Johnson Valley, which is east of Lucerne Valley, as a recreational riding area, are incrementally moving their riding zones eastward, partly as a result of a 2013 Department of the Navy approval of a Marine Corps’ record of decision calling for the expansion of the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center into Johnson Valley and Wonder Valley. The expansion extended the footprint of the existing Combat Center 146,667 acres to the west and 21,304 acres to the south, entailing the acquisition of 167,971 acres of civilian- and government-owned property, much of which was considered by off-road enthusiasts to be prime dune buggy and dirt bike terrain. Under that change, 42,803 acres in the Johnson Valley off-highway vehicle area remain available to the public year round. The Department of the Navy agreed to converting 4,912 acres of the 146,667 acres to be occupied by the expansion into what is referred to as a “shared use area” used by the military only two months out of the year and available for public recreation the ten remaining months. That boosted the shared use area of the entire combat center to a total of 43,049 acres. This has resulted in motorcyclists moving into areas that previously remained undisturbed for months or even years at a time.
During his final year in office, President Barack Obama in February 2016 established the Mojave Trails and two smaller monuments, Sand to Snow and Castle Mountains, laying out protection for just under two million acres of mostly pristine desert land next to or between Joshua Tree National Park and the Mojave National Preserve.
The 1.6 million-acre Mojave Trails exists as a travel corridor through which bighorn sheep and other wildlife transit between Joshua Tree National Park and the Mojave preserve and it also includes Native American pathways between springs, a part of the Old Spanish Trail and a 70-mile span of the now rarely travelled Route 66.
Last month, on April 26, President Donald Trump issued an executive order calling for an administrative review of all of the 27 national monuments created since 1995 under the Antiquities Act of 1906 which individually cover more than 100,000 acres. Trump’s order calls for U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke to determine whether any of the 27 national monuments were created without proper input from the public and local, state and tribal governments. It says designations made without such input may impede “energy independence” or “curtail economic growth.” Mojave Trails and Sand to Snow are among the 27 monuments covered by Trump’s order.  –Mark Gutglueck

The Fun Starts Here: The 70th Annual San Bernardino County Fair

The 70th Annual San Bernardino County Fair, open now until the May 22 and again May 25 through 29, offers the potential for fun as individual carnival ride tickets will be 50 percent less than most carnivals and previous years. Individual carnival ride tickets are now just 50 cents each and each ride ranges from three to 12 tickets.
“It costs us the same to operate the rides whether they are full or not, so we would rather see hose seats full of excited guests,” said Davey Helm, CEO of Helm and Sons Amusements.
General Fair admission is $7 with children under age five allowed in free. Guests have multiple options for enjoying the colossal carnival attractions. Individual ride tickets can be purchased or carnival enthusiasts can buy wristbands for $25 onsite. Carnival wristbands include unlimited rides for one full day on the day of purchase.
The Carnival Super Pack is available online only and includes one Fair admission ticket and one carnival wristband for $30.
“The maximum price per ride regardless of the ride, even the largest most extreme rides like the
Big Splash, is just 12 tickets, a great value,” commented Helm.
If you want to ride more rides faster, wristband holders can upgrade to the WOWXpress fast pass.
For an additional $15, riders can skip the long lines and use a special designated VIP entrance at every ride. The WOWXpress fast pass has limited availability daily to ensure exclusivity for those who upgrade.
Even the carnival games offer an excellent value as many games have an option for a $2 or $3 game. Many games are winner-every-time, so every player gets a prize.

Defense Attorneys Come To Befriend Postmus, Rather Than To Bury Him

By Mark Gutglueck
Bill Postmus, whose testimony in the Colonies Lawsuit Settlement Public Corruption Prosecution is considered the centerpiece of the case and which enlivened the flagging fortunes of the combined district attorney’s office/state attorney general team pursuing it during week 18, found himself beset by defense attorneys during Week 19 as they sought, with some degree of effectiveness, to compromise him as the bête noir of the four remaining defendants charged with participation in what California Governor Jerry Brown once termed “the most appalling corruption case in decades, certainly in the history of San Bernardino County and maybe California itself.”
Brown, who was then California Attorney General, made that description in 2010, when Postmus was himself charged in the conspiracy, along with former deputy sheriffs’ union president Jim Erwin. Though he originally pleaded not guilty, Postmus caved in the following year, pleading guilty in March 2011 to a total of 14 political corruption charges lodged against him, and agreed to turn state’s evidence. He then served as the star witness before a grand jury that indicted Erwin along with Jeff Burum, one of two managing principals with the Colonies Partners development consortium; Paul Biane, who had been one of Postmus’ colleagues on the board of supervisors that conferred a $102 million payment on the Colonies Partners in November 2006 to end a four year-running lawsuit the development company had brought against the county over flood control issues at the Colonies at San Antonio and Crossroads Colonies residential and commercial subdivisions in northeast Upland; and Mark Kirk, who had been the chief of staff to Gary Ovitt, the third supervisor who had joined with Postmus and Biane in approving the $102 million settlement.
Last week, during the first two hours of his testimony under direct examination by supervising deputy district attorney R. Lewis Cope, Postmus had provided more material in support of the prosecution’s case than had been vouchsafed by the 33 previous witnesses combined in the first 18 weeks.
According to the 29-count indictment handed down in May 2011, Colonies Partners co-managing principal Jeff Burum, after four years of being unable to resolve the matter with the county so that his residential and commercial projects could proceed as he envisioned, conspired with Erwin to extort Postmus, the then-chairman of the board of supervisors, and the then-vice chairman of the board of supervisors, Biane, by threatening to reveal in mailers to be sent to voters throughout the county highly derogatory personal information about both of them. After Postmus and Biane acceded to this blackmail and voted with then-supervisor Ovitt in November 2006 to approve the $102 million lawsuit settlement, according to the indictment, Burum then provided Postmus, Biane, Erwin and Kirk with separate $100,000 bribes in the form of donations made to political action committees they had created or otherwise controlled. Kirk’s bribe, the prosecution alleges, was provided to him by the Colonies Partners in return for having delivered Ovitt’s vote. Erwin, who was not employed by the county at the time of his efforts related to the extortion, was, however, employed as assistant county assessor in 2007 when the $100,000 donation to his political action committee was made.
During his time on the witness stand Monday, Tuesday and well into Wednesday, May 1 through May 3 last week, Postmus replicated the key elements of this narrative. In the latter half of 2006, Erwin, working on behalf of Burum and the Colonies Partners, Postmus testified, had threatened to expose elements of both his and Biane’s personal lives in an effort to persuade them to support the settlement. And Burum had promised to support him in either or both future political and business endeavors once the settlement was out of the way, he said. Moreover, Postmus said, he believed the $102 million paid out to the Colonies Partners was more – ridiculously more – than the development company was due. The threats and promises of reward, he said, along with the desire to put the whole thing behind him, he testified, prompted the settlement. And after the settlement was in place, Postmus testified, the Colonies Partners had come through with two separate $50,000 donations to political action committees he had control over. Postmus was chairman of the board when the decision was handed down, and previous testimony by numerous witnesses represent him as having commandeered from Biane the role of the major champion on the board of forging some order of a settlement with the Colonies Partners to bring to a close the litigation. Those witnesses generally held that Biane, in whose Second Supervisorial District the project was located and who had been elected as Second District supervisor in 2002 in large measure on the strength of grand scale political donations from the Colonies Partners, had been the earliest and most vocal advocate of ending the legal wrangling. A number of witnesses – ranging from former top county administrator Marc Uffer to two of the county’s top ranking in-house attorneys, Ron Reitz and Ruth Stringer, along with the then-up-and-coming junior lawyer Reitz and Stringer had kept assigned to handle the Colonies litigation case, Mitch Norton, all reported that when Postmus returned to California from a nearly two-week-long trade mission trip to China in September 2005 during which he had met extensively with Burum, he had adamantly insisted that the county bring the litigation to a close, ignoring their counsel that a settlement on the terms the Colonies Partners was seeking was unjustifiable and inconsistent with the county’s interests. Postmus offered testimony that complemented that of Uffer, Reitz and Stringer, acknowledging that he had met Burum only a handful of times before the China trip at fundraisers. Postmus testified that as a consequence of the efforts of former state legislator Jim Brulte, who had gone to work as a lobbyist for the Colonies Partners, he had been properly introduced to Burum on the flight to China, and that while in Hong Kong and a number of cities on the mainland he and Burum had hit it off as traveling companions who on their own sought out Western cuisine as a respite from the Oriental dishes served at the formal dinners associated with the tour. They visited bathhouses and bazaars together, cementing their newfound friendship, Postmus testified, while Burum bent his ear with regard to settling the lawsuit.
When Cope ended his direct examination of Postmus on Wednesday May 3, the prosecution’s case had seemingly achieved its high water mark. In the afternoon of May 3, one of Burum’s attorneys, Jennifer Keller, began her cross examination of Postmus. That day and the next, she succeeded in making inroads on the ground deep behind the defense’s lines the prosecution appeared to have captured. Right out of the gate, Keller moved to explore in greater depth Postmus’ drug use both during and after the events upon which Cope had vectored such a sharp focus. In so doing, Keller established that, in Postmus’ words, “My mind is kind of messed up” from drug use, to the point that his memory was sketchy at best and his temporal sense was completely out of synch, such that dates and times were jumbled so that he was confusing things that happened at one point or another with things that had happened one, two or three years previously or one, two or three years later. In response to a set of carefully crafted questions accompanied by displays of emails, documents, and/or the transcripts of interrogations by district attorney’s office investigators, Keller endeavored to establish that what appeared to be false memories were being planted in Postmus’ addled pate by those investigators and that the prosecutors had then harvested those false memories during his appearance before the grand jury in 2011 to obtain the indictments.
Monday morning of this week, May 8, Keller continued her assault. Remarkably, however, Keller maintained the essential tenor of her cross examination of last week, one that avoided an absolute destruction of Postmus as a witness but instead turned him into something that in much of its aspect imprecisely simulated a defense witness. Whereas previously, elements within the defense camp, including Burum’s publicist Edward Berrera, had hinted or openly suggested that Keller and the other defense attorneys were “going to burn him to the ground,” that immolation never took place, at least in the way many courtroom observers anticipated. This was partially because Postmus made doing so awkward if not undoable. From the start, under direct examination by Cope, he had owned up to his drug use and homosexuality. Once establishing those two elements of Postmus’ makeup as realities, the prosecutor had gone on to issues directly bearing upon his theory of guilt. That presented Keller, or so it seemed, with an opportunity to shred Postmus’ credibility by showing that he had in some fashion minimized his addiction or elements of his lifestyle in his exchange with Cope. But when Keller pounced, suggesting that Postmus’ lifestyle was far more sordid than he had let on, involving drug-fueled homosexual hook-ups with scores or hundreds of men whom he had never before met through a website entitled Party and Play, through which he had indulged what Keller characterized as “a sexual addiction” and by which arrangements for those trysts were made, including explicit references to which party in the pairings would bring which drugs, he offered no resistance to her assertions and there were no denials in his answers. Indeed, Postmus without any seeming reluctance came across as willing to openly acknowledge all of the elements of his personality which he had kept under wraps during his political heyday, a signal that he had abandoned in its entirely his previous political ambition, any illusion that he might again establish his hold on the Republican establishment over which he had once lorded, and that without reservation he was absolutely resigned to endure a complete loss of his dignity. Keller’s examination style embodies a strategy of asking simple and disarming questions in a friendly tone and manner to establish a baseline which she then abandons without warning by posing a ruthlessly challenging and pointed question. Postmus cottoned at once to the almost motherly tenor of Keller’s initial questions and once that seemingly warm relationship was established, refused to abandon it, even when Keller put steel into her voice and venom into her questions. In short, Postmus could not be lured into a confrontation with her during which she would be able to marshal documentation in the form of an email, recorded statement or transcript of his earlier testimony before the grand jury or his interrogations with investigators to demonstrate him to be wrong, mistaken, exaggerating or outright lying.
Thus Keller was faced with a similar circumstance as the defense camp had been confronted with by an earlier prosecution witness, Matt Brown. Brown had been Biane’s chief of staff who had created the political action committee, San Bernardino County Young Republicans, which had received the $100,000 donation from the Colonies Partners which the prosecution alleges was a bribe to Biane. When he was approached by investigators with the district attorney’s office in 2009, Brown agreed to cooperate with them and gather information against those the district attorney’s office believed to be involved in the bribery conspiracy, primarily targeting Biane, including wearing a concealed audio monitoring device and secretly recording conversations in which he trolled for statements to implicate the defendants in a quid pro quo arrangement with regard to the Colonies lawsuit settlement. Burum’s defense team, as well as Biane’s lawyer, Mark McDonald, were prepared to savage Brown. But Brown, who was clearly resentful toward prosecutors for having been put into the position of having to offer testimony against his one-time friend, political associate and boss, and who yet harbored a grudge toward the district attorney’s office investigators for the intimidation tactics used during his interrogations, failed to offer the hard-edged and damning testimony that California Supervising Deputy Attorney General Melissa Mandel attempted to elicit from him on direct examination. Defense attorneys immediately regrouped and instead of seeking to impeach Brown, seemingly worked with him to elicit testimony that retarded the prosecution’s case nearly as much as it advanced it. Somewhat similarly, Keller in a remarkable show of mental dexterity adjusted on the fly with Postmus, almost but not quite befriending him and thereby drawing from him statements or simple yes-or-no answers that compromised, softened, watered-down, lessened or even in some sense contradicted the testimony he had given during his first three days on the witness stand that had so significantly strengthened the prosecution.
In this way, Keller had essentially two major issues to work with – Postmus’ poor memory and his accompanying fragile mental state. Both of those are at least partial byproducts of the heavy drug use Postmus was engaged in at the time of the events which are the subject of the case were taking place. Keller suggested, over and over again, that the prosecution had exploited the drug addled Postmus to piece together a criminal case that would not hold up in the light of the application of mental acuity.
On Monday May 8, Keller took aim at what the defense has all along represented as a crucial area of weakness in the prosecution’s theory of guilt, specifically the assertion there was a clear understanding before the settlement was voted upon that the alleged bribes – the $100,000 contributions to the various political action committees – had been promised to the recipients. In his initial testimony related to this issue under direct examination last week, Postmus had said that Burum in 2006 prior to the settlement had given him an assurance that if the settlement were effectuated he would support him politically if Postmus remained in office, and that Burum said he would sponsor him in his private sector endeavors if he decided to leave office, and that he had discussed with Burum being placed on the board of one of the nonprofit corporations Burum had founded. But that representation offered no specific dollar amount and Keller asked Postmus if in 2006 he had been promised money in return for approving the agreement
“No, Ma’am,” he said.
Keller moved to counter Cope’s success last week when the prosecutor had wrung from Postmus a statement to the effect that he thought the $102 million settlement was excessive. Postmus told Keller that finding a negotiated end to the prolonged litigation was “the right thing” to do, given that the county had suffered a setback in court and that the Colonies Partners were asserting the company had sustained $300 million in damages.
Keller used the rapport she was cultivating with Postmus to foreshadow and in some measure attempt to discredit ahead of time the testimony of Adam Aleman, from whom the juries have yet to hear. Aleman was Postmus’ protégé, a young man long suspected by many as having been one of Postmus’ lovers. Aleman was 20 years old and working as a maître d’ when Postmus met him. Postmus hired him to work as a field representative in his supervisor’s office and eventually encouraged him to successfully seek a position on the San Bernardino County Republican Central Committee. Upon being elected assessor, Postmus altered the traditional managerial hierarchy in the assessor’s office from having a single assistant assessor position to having two assistant assessors, into which posts he installed Erwin and Aleman, who was then 23 years old. Postmus hired Aleman, conferring upon him a $132,000 per year salary plus $56,000 in benefits, despite the consideration that he had no college degree, no experience assessing real estate and no real estate license. Upon assuming the assistant assessor’s position, Aleman failed to complete a property assessment training and licensing course. Instead, Postmus entrusted him to oversee a newly-formed branch of the assessor’s office which Postmus filled with political appointments and several of his boyfriends, none of whom had any skills relating to the duties of the assessor’s office. It would be Aleman’s actions and comportment as assistant assessor which in no small measure would lead to Postmus’ political demise. Rather than master the ins and outs of determining the worth and taxability of property and assets, Aleman operated what was essentially a partisan political promotion effort from his office, assisting Republicans seeking office with their candidacies when he was at work. He was often absent from the assessor’s office, attending college classes in an effort to get a degree. Eventually, complaints about his lack of performance on the job as well as his use of government facilities for partisan political purposes surfaced and the ensuing investigation expanded into a grand jury inquiry into the assessor’s office. When he was subpoenaed to go before that grand jury, Aleman panicked, ordered an assessor’s office secretary to alter internal office documents, destroyed the hard drive of a laptop computer that had been issued to him by the county and then perjured himself when he went before the grand jury. Criminal charges against him ensued and eventually he entered into a plea arrangement, agreed to wear a concealed recorder for investigators in their efforts to gather information first against Postmus and later against the defendants now on trial. Along the way he provided statements about events leading up to and following the Colonies lawsuit settlement. Indeed, in court papers and in grand jury testimony, prosecutors and their investigators have indicated that it was Aleman who sparked the case now being prosecuted against Burum, Biane, Erwin and Kirk when he intimated to investigators that Postmus, Biane and Kirk were offered the money they eventually received from the Colonies Partners in the form of donations to their political action committees in advance of the November 2006 vote to approve the $102 million settlement.
Keller explored with Postmus his estimation of Aleman’s credibility, seeking from him his current opinion, but also prompting him with passages from conversations Postmus had with Aleman which the latter was the surreptitiously recording, statements made before the grand jury and statements made to investigators, both those with the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI. One of those was an interview Postmus had with FBI Agent John Zeitlin and then-Assistant U.S. Attorney Jerry Behnke on October 14, 2011. Behnke is now working with one of the law firms defending Burum.
Postmus told Zeitlin and Behnke that Aleman had made misrepresentations with regard to several elements of the Colonies settlement corruption case. “He has been very dishonest about many things,” Postmus told Zeitlin and Behnke, adding that no one solicited the bribes from the Colonies Partners prior to the settlement, a direct contradiction of Aleman’s assertion to district attorney’s office investigators that Postmus, Biane and Kirk all knew they were getting the contributions before the settlement.
Keller reiterated that subject with Postmus, asking him if he was told he could expect a $100,000 contribution in exchange for his vote.
“I don’t ever recall having a conversation with anyone regarding that,” Postmus said.
As Keller proceeded with her cross examination of Postmus, referencing secretly recorded conversations or text messages that had passed between Aleman and Postmus which Aleman had turned over to investigators, Postmus appeared to be discovering anew the degree to which he had been betrayed by one of his closest associates. The irony of this was palpable when Keller referenced a poignant text message Postmus had sent to Aleman in November 2008 in which Postmus had written “I’m so sad. I’ve been betrayed by everyone except you and Greg.” Greg was Greg Eyler, one of Postmus’ boyfriends he had hired to work as a “taxpayer advocate” in the assessor’s office. Aleman passed that along to the district attorney’s office.
Postmus remained unsuspecting that Aleman had entered into a cooperative alliance with the district attorney’s office throughout 2008 and into 2009, while they were both the focus of the district attorney’s office’s targeting of abuse of the assessor’s office. In February 2010, Postmus and Erwin were named in a criminal complaint alleging a grand conspiracy relating to the Colonies lawsuit settlement. Both were arrested. The complaint gave a comprehensive description of the overt acts alleged by prosecutors, and contained within it was a description of several individuals, unnamed and described only as John Does one through five as unindicted co-conspirators. Enough information was contained in the narrative to identify those Does as Burum; Burum’s co-managing principal in the Colonies Partners, Dan Richards; a public relations consultant working for the Colonies Partners, Patrick O’Reilly; Biane; and Kirk. There were also multiple references within the complaint to a confidential informant. After his February 2010 arrest, Postmus was bailed out of custody. Shortly thereafter, he read the complaint against him and Erwin. An analysis of the statements attributed to the confidential informant led him to the conclusion that it was Aleman. Sometime thereafter, they exchanged text messages, which Keller referenced. When Postmus confronted Aleman about his act of betrayal, Aleman responded by telling Postmus “Please get help with your meth problem.” Postmus shot back “Please get help with telling the truth.” He went on to tell Aleman, “You will always be known as a liar,” adding that no one believed him except the district attorney’s office investigators. He told Aleman to devote his time to dealing with district attorney’s office investigator Hollis Randles. “I’m certain he believes everything you say,” Postmus texted.
Keller briefly explored borderline ethical violations the district attorney’s office, which eventually pursued the criminal charges against the defendants in conjunction with the California Attorney General’s office, had engaged in during its investigation. One example was the information district attorney’s investigators obtained from Aleman during his discussions with Postmus about his difficulty in financing his criminal defense, which either came very close to crossing or did cross over the line into the arena of attorney-client privilege. Keller also determined from Postmus that district attorney’s office investigator Bob Schreiber had set up a non-governmental email address with which to communicate with Postmus after Postmus began cooperating with the district attorney’s office.
Keller sought to illustrate the extremity to which Postmus had been pushed and the desperate straits he was in when he threw in the towel in 2011 and agreed to plead guilty to the charges against him and become a witness against his former friends, colleagues, political associates and one of his major campaign donors.
In November 2007, Erwin resigned from the assessor’s office, was given a six-month severance package and went to the district attorney’s office with a complaint about untoward activity in the assessor’s office. That led to the investigators’ focus on Aleman. In 2008, following Aleman’s arrest, rumors of problems in the assessor’s office began to spread publicly, which were fueled by Postmus’ extended absence that summer and into October, while he was undergoing drug rehab. That fall, Postmus was only sporadically present in his office and the board of supervisors began an inquiry into the matter. On January 6, 2009 Postmus came before the board of supervisors, claiming he had “with the help of God” beaten the “scourge” of drug addiction. Less than two weeks later, however, the district attorney’s office, having ostensibly obtained a search warrant to search Postmus’ office and home for evidence of misuse of his authority as assessor but having been secretly tipped off by Aleman that there would very likely be drugs abounding at his residence, served that search warrant and found a bag with methamphetamine residue in it, a small quantity of the drug ecstacy, a syringe with liquefied methamphetamine in it, and other drug paraphernalia. Postmus was arrested and the county thereafter hired former Assistant U.S. Attorney John C. Hueston, who had worked on the Enron prosecution and had since gone into private practice, to put together a report preparatory to removing Postmus from office. The following month Postmus resigned.
Later that year, charges of grand theft, embezzlement and perjury, growing out of his alleged misuse of his authority in the assessor’s office, were filed against Postmus in a complaint in which Greg Eyler was also charged. Postmus was further charged with possession of a controlled substance. Then, in February 2010, the aforementioned charges pertaining to the Colonies settlement were filed against him and Erwin. On August 12, 2010, when Postmus came to court for a preliminary hearing on the charges filed against him and Eyler, he appeared to be intoxicated when he was approached by a sheriff’s deputy in the courtroom. He was arrested and charged with being under the influence of an illegal substance.
In November 2010, Postmus’ fortunes were at a nadir. He was no longer able to pay either of his attorneys. In February 2011, Postmus, in consultation with his attorneys Stephen Levine and Richard Farquhar, began talking to the district attorney’s office about the Colonies case.
When Keller asked him about his circumstance at that point, Postmus said he was overwhelmed by it. He was out of money, unemployed and facing what seemed certain prison time on the drug offenses. Cooperating with the prosecutors was his only way out.
“I didn’t have a chance,” he testified. Once he started down that path, Postmus said, he was subjected to “immense pressure” to make his story conform with the theory of conspiracy already developed by the district attorney’s office.
Keller sought to pull from Postmus a narrative that would absolve her client, Burum.
“You went in there with the intention of telling the truth,” Keller said. She asked him if in his encounters with the district attorney’s office investigators, “You felt you weren’t being believed?”
Postmus said the investigators implied that he was not telling them the truth.
Postmus did provide the investigators with a crucial confirmation of the prosecution’s theory of bribery, essentially that Burum told him he would support him in the future, and that would not take place until the lawsuit had been satisfactorily resolved.
Keller sought to show that the investigators had sought to artificially enlarge upon that, suggesting that Schreiber and Randles had pressured him to say that Burum had explicitly connected the rewards in the form of the political donations to the vote ratifying the settlement. She played a tape recording of an exchange between Postmus and Randles during an interrogation on February 16, 2011 in which Randles said Postmus’ hesitancy in implicating the others “was going to be a problem.”
Postmus retorted, “I’m telling you the truth” and “I don’t want to put words into other people’s mouths.”
Randles, however, insisted that Postmus was seeking to minimize his own participation in the bribery scheme and that of others. “That’s not going to work here,” Randles told Postmus.
Keller returned to a theme she had laid out previously, this time suggesting directly that the investigators were seeding him with “false memories” and “false beliefs,” a defense theory that propounds Postmus’ drug use left him addled and ripe for suggestion. To emphasize this, she explored whether the investigators, who had more than adequate reason to believe and understand that Postmus had a serious drug problem based upon his January 2009 arrest at his home and his arrest in court in August 2010, had abetted him in his continuing use of drugs in 2011 because that would dovetail with their goal of inducing him to falsely implicate the others.
“Did they ever drug test you?” Keller asked
“No,” he said.
“In all those interviews?” she pressed.
“No. But my attorney did,” Postmus said. It was not until 2012, Postmus said, that he at last resolved to end his drug use.
After Keller concluded her cross examination, Erwin’s attorney, Raj Maline, set about showing that his client had been maligned and falsely accused by Aleman, who had laid down the basis of the prosecution narrative, leading to the charges against his client and the others. Using email exchanges and recorded conversations between Postmus and Aleman that Keller had already played or referenced and then introducing others in which Aleman was continuously making uncharitable statements about Erwin, Maline got Postmus to acknowledge that Aleman disliked and resented Erwin. Maline also was able to get Postmus to acknowledge that after both Erwin and Aleman had been hired as assistant assessors, Erwin had taken the responsibility that had been bestowed upon him seriously, qualified himself in terms of training and licensing with regard to determining the valuation of properties and assets vis-à-vis their taxability, and had taken on the assignment of overseeing the assessor’s office’s operations while Aleman had cultivated no expertise or even knowledge about the office’s function and had instead engaged in political activity bearing no relation to the duty of the assessor.
Taking a leaf from Keller’s book, Maline sought to suggest through an extended set of questions and demonstrations of exhibits that the prosecution had planted in Postmus’ mind the false belief that Erwin had blackmailed him over his homosexuality and drug abuse by propounding a false narrative to that effect. This false narrative, Maline suggested, was based on the fact that Erwin had indeed threatened Postmus with exposure of his drug use, not before the Colonies settlement took place but well after it, when Postmus was established as assessor and his drug use was raging out control and threatening the integrity of the office and the livelihoods of those who worked there.
To illustrate this, Maline questioned Postmus about the multiple efforts made by those in his circle to get him into a drug rehab program so he could kick his addiction. Postmus testified that those at the forefront of this effort were Erwin; Bob Smith, a former sheriff’s deputy who had worked as one of his field representatives when he was supervisor; and members of his family. In at least two of his earlier rehab efforts in 2006 and 2007, Postmus said, he had failed to complete the program or left early. By the spring of 2007, Erwin, who had engaged in an intervention with several others at Postmus then-home in Hesperia and packed him off to a drug treatment center in Lucerne Valley from which Postmus ultimately ditched, was losing patience with the situation and was on the brink of resigning as assistant assessor.
Maline displayed an interoffice memo dated May 23, 2007 Erwin sent to his boss in which he, remarkably, dictated to Postmus what he was going to have to do, which consisted of completing a drug rehabilitation program with no shilly-shallying. The memo, alluding to the intervention that took place at Postmus’ Hesperia residence on May 11, 2007, put forth that Postmus had last acknowledged using drugs on May 7 and that he had been checked into the Pine Ridge recovery center on May 11. The memo then moves on to state that Postmus is being given one last chance to end his drug use, and that if he does not do so, Erwin will take drastic action.
“I am sure that after much reflection you are aware that your conduct has placed into jeopardy your personal and political reputation,” the memo stated, noting that Postmus’ “erratic behavior” was risking the livelihoods “of approximately 230 employees of the assessor’s office.” Erwin noted that he had personally contacted Chuck Reed, a principal in the Pine Ridge operation, which had a satellite clinic in San Bernardino offering outpatient services, to arrange for Postmus to undergo treatment while continuing to function as assessor. Postmus was to take part in a regimen that included weekday group counseling sessions and mandatory random drug screening that would trigger automatic notification of Aleman and Erwin if Postmus were to test positive. “After much deliberation and soul-searching, I have decided in the event that you fail to complete the aforementioned rehabilitation program, formal disclosure to the county of your condition will be required,” the memo states. “Tomorrow I will contact Pine Ridge to confirm that you have authorized mandatory disclosure.”
Maline asked Postmus if what Erwin was engaging in at this point was “tough love. Is that what we could describe this as?”
“Yeah, I guess you can say that,” Postmus responded.
“To the degree possible, Mr. Erwin kept your drug problem under wraps so you could continue your career, right?”
Postmus said that was the case.
Maline then went on to extract from Postmus a reiteration of his previous testimony that somewhere in that time frame he had been at his home with Aleman when a man was spotted in a car across the street reconnoitering Postmus’ home. When Postmus approached him, the man drove off. Maline suggested that the man was actually a private investigator hired by John Hueston to assist him with the report the county was undertaking to justify removing Postmus from office. Maline contrasted this with Postmus earlier testimony under direct examination by San Bernardino County Supervising Deputy District Attorney Lewis Cope that Erwin had told him prior to the settlement that Burum had hired private investigators who had dug through both his and Biane’s trash in an effort to find derogatory information about them. Maline’s suggestion was that Keller’s theory that Postmus’ drug use had jumbled events in his mind and memory was indeed accurate, causing him to falsely believe Erwin had blackmailed him on behalf of Burum.
Following Maline’s cross examination, Kirk’s attorney, Peter Scalisi, asked Postmus a brief set of questions, the most significant of which focused on whether supervisor Gary Ovitt, whose vote on behalf of the Colonies lawsuit settlement Kirk is accused of delivering in return for the $100,000 donation to his political action committee, was in favor of settling the litigation with the Colonies before he came into office in 2004. Postmus indicated that Ovitt was committed to settling the settlement from the outset of his time in office.
Cope began his redirect examination of Postmus on Wednesday afternoon May 10 at 1:44 p.m. After four days in which the defense attorneys had distracted the jury from the basics at the heart of the prosecution’s case which he had propounded so well during Postmus’ testimony on May 1, 2 and 3, Cope set to reestablishing the momentum in his direction. Cope was able to do so, at least in part. He utilized references to Postmus’ earlier testimony before the grand jury that indicted Burum, Biane, Erwin and Kirk as well as Postmus’ statements to the FBI to bring certain issues into focus.
To undo the doubt that Keller had sown with regard to Burum having made a commitment to Postmus to reward him for supporting the $102 million settlement, Cope asked, “Just to make sure, he stated to you many times he would support you in future political efforts for higher office?”
“Yes, sir, said Postmus.
“And if you chose not to go on to higher office, in other words, he would provide a business future for you. Is that correct?” Cope asked.
“Absolutely,” said Postmus.
“He said he would support you with a business opportunity,” said Cope. “Did that include money?”
“We never talked about, you know, specifics, but the impression I was under is Jeff did business deals and investments, etcetera, and… he’d be an investor of mine if we settled on whatever numbers we ultimately came up with,” Postmus said.
Cope then switched his focus to Erwin’s role in forging the $102 million settlement, getting Postmus to say, “During 2006, when the settlement negotiations had stalled, Jim became very angry with myself and Paul Biane over that.” He said that when he and Biane failed to get supervisor Josie Gonzales to join in with approving the settlement that Erwin “basically made threats that he would expose my homosexuality and drug use.”
Cope asked how many times that had happened.
“Dozens of times, in person and over the phone,” Postmus testified.
On Thursday morning, Cope returned to the issue of Postmus’ statement to Zeitlin and Behnke during the October 14, 2011 interview with the FBI relating to there being no quid pro quo with regard to the settlement vote and the $100,000 in donations to his political action committees. Postmus indicated last week he was unclear on the definition of the Latin term quid pro quo, which translates into ‘this for that’ or ‘something for something.’ The defense has made much of that statement. When Cope asked about it, Postmus stated, “I never felt it was a quid pro quo, per se, but it was very clear afterward there would be campaign donations.”
Cope referenced statements that Postmus had made with regard to the $102 million settlement to the effect that “Paul [Biane] and I had some heart to heart discussions. We felt we were being bent over on this big time. In terms of the amount, we felt it was a ridiculous amount of money. I still can’t justify the $102 million in my mind.”
Postmus further suggested there was something illicit about the settlement in that there had been a tremendous rush to complete it by the time he left the board because of the lack of certainty that whoever would succeed him might not support it.
Cope took up the issue of Postmus being coached in his testimony by the prosecution. Cope asked if he felt he had been coached through the process.
“No, not coached, absolutely not,” Postmus said.
Noting that Postmus’ emphasis on the word ‘coached’ in his answer yet betokened his answers were in some fashion being manipulated, Cope asked him, “Is there another word you think is better than coached?”
“Well, coached would kind of mean you are helped along in your questions to push me along to an answer you wanted,” Postmus said.
“Your statement to the FBI was you had not been coached by the DA’s office,” Cope said. “Did you feel you were coached by the investigators?”
“I believe that Mr. Randles and Mr. Schreiber were somewhat heavyhanded in the first interviews,” Postmus said.
Cope asked if his attorneys were present during those sessions. Postmus said that at least one was.
“Did you tell members of the FBI that you did not feel pressured to give certain answers?” Cope asked.
Postmus responded that he felt pressured to close a plea deal but that “I did not feel pressured to give certain answers, etcetera.”
Upon the conclusion of seven days on the witness stand, Postmus’ testimony had not yet ended, and he is to return on Tuesday May 16 for more redirect questioning from Cope. Indeed, Postmus came across as highly accommodating of whichever attorney was questioning him at any given time, almost as if he was taking on the personality of his examiner. This comported with, to no small degree, Keller’s theory that his near-decade long use of drugs had left him in a highly suggestible state. Still the same, there is no assurance that demonstration will redound to the defense’s benefit, since it is the prosecution’s contention that Burum and Erwin used his suggestibility to their advantage in achieving the $102 settlement.
The most significant developments in the case this week in terms of the eventual determination of the guilt or innocence of the defendants may have occurred outside the presence of the juries. The prosecution wanted to introduce as evidence a letter, written by one of the 19 minority investors in the Colonies Partners, Ray Crebs, in April 2007 that was posted to all of the Colonies Partners investors. In that letter, Crebs called for conferring on Jeff Burum and Dan Richards, the other managing principal in the consortium, a bonus consisting of ten percent of the $102 million settlement. Crebs refers in the letter to the $102 million as a “windfall,” and stated that the $102 million settlement far exceeds any settlement that was expected or anticipated. Moreover, he indicated, the $102 million exceeded by more than $60 million the actual $40 million maximum value of the property that was at stake in the litigation with the county. Thus, Krebs’ letter would, if considered by the two juries hearing the case, starkly contradict the contention advanced by the Colonies Partners and the legal teams for the defendants throughout the criminal trial to the effect that the $102 million settlement was a reasonable one which the Colonies Partners were due, an assertion which the defense maintains undercuts the prosecution’s assertion that the settlement was an unjust one which came about because of graft. Defense attorneys opposed displaying the letter to the jurors while the prosecution wanted them to consider it and hear the prosecution’s argument that the letter establishes Burum knew that he was not entitled to the $102 million the Colonies Partners achieved with the settlement. This, the prosecution asserts, buttresses the argument that Burum and Erwin used threats, intimidation, blackmail, extortion and bribery to obtain the settlement. Judge Michael A. Smith, who is presiding over the case, said Krebs’ letter would be relevant only if it could be established that he had in-depth knowledge of the development project and the litigation it had spawned, which a minority partner was not likely to have. A hearing was held Wednesday morning inside the second floor courtroom while jurors were out of earshot within the court hallway. Krebs under questioning by California Supervising Deputy Attorney General Melissa Mandel testified he had not written the letter, and had instead entrusted its drafting to his attorney. Krebs said he was a minority investor with $125,000 invested in the venture who had no direct knowledge of the progress of the project or its accompanying litigation and only received periodic updates on the project from the managing partners. He indicated that he had laid out the theme of the letter, which was consistent with his philosophy as an investor that those in a management role should be incentivized to perform. He said his perception that the windfall received by the Colonies Partners was inconsistent with the value of the property at stake in the litigation came from press accounts rather than knowledge gleaned from being an insider with the Colonies Partners. Judge Smith seemed to be leaning against allowing the jurors to see the letter, which was indicated by him telling Burum’s lawyer, Stephen Larson, who wanted to question Krebs after Mandel had finished her examination, that his questions would not be necessary.
Erwin’s attorney, Raj Maline, had requested two open files on investigations of public officials in San Bernardino County being done by the district attorney’s public integrity unit. Deputy district attorney Carlo DiCesare, outside the presence of the jury, came into the courtroom with what were identified as public integrity unit files 309 and 310, which were provided to the court under seal. Judge Smith is to review their contents to determine if they bear any relevance to the case.
Also discussed outside the presence of the jury was the admissibility of an exchange between Postmus and Aleman in which Postmus offered Aleman an assurance that Burum is going to take care of them.
A question in writing from one of the jurors submitted to the court, based upon its wording, appeared to indicate, Judge Smith said, that the juror was leaning toward a conclusion that bribery had occurred. Smith has allowed jurors to submit questions to ensure that issues that result in possible confusion are given an adequate explanation, and Smith has shared the questions with all of the attorneys involved. The question at issue arose when Postmus provided answers to Keller’s questions which seemed to contradict answers he had given under direct examination by Cope. Smith said it appeared the juror might be reaching a conclusion prior to the close of testimony and before deliberations, which is contrary to the basic instructions provided to the jury.
On Thursday, Judge Smith dismissed two felony charges contained in the case against Erwin which pertained to his having failed to make timely and proper reports of gifts he received from Burum, a Rolex watch valued at more than $12,000 and air fare and accommodations on a trip to New York City and Washington, D.C. they took together with Erwin’s then-publicist, Patrick O’Reilly in the aftermath of the lawsuit settlement, in January 2007. Erwin reported receiving the gifts in February 2009, a month after district attorney’s investigators served a search warrant at his home in Highland and seized the watch. A month later, the district attorney’s office charged Erwin with the two felony counts of filing a false or forged document. Those charges were wrapped into the 2011 indictment.
The dismissal grew out of the California Supreme Court allowing a Fourth District Court of Appeal ruling in a similar case to stand. The appellate court ruled that public officials cannot be charged with felonies for failing to report gifts valued at $50 or more on economic and income disclosure documents known in California as Form 700s. A parallel statute in the California Government Code which sets such Form 700 disclosure failures at the level of a misdemeanor supersedes prosecutors’ ability to pursue the charges as felonies, the court held.
Because the statute of limitations on the filing of the charges as misdemeanors has elapsed, the charges were dropped. Erwin is still facing 10 felonies, including aiding and abetting in the receipt of a bribe and failing to file a tax return. One of the juries in Smith’s courtroom is hearing the case against Erwin. The other jury is deciding the fate of Burum, Biane and Kirk. On those occasions where statements made by Erwin are introduced as evidence against him, the jury for the other three defendants is excluded, because of the presumption that Erwin will not testify in the trial based on his Fifth Amendment rights, and because the other defendants have Sixth Amendment rights which allow them to cross examine any witness in the matter.
