Thursday, December 16, 2010"Santa Barbara Police Chief Cam Sanchez is named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed on October 29 by Mission Terrace convalescent home, which alleges Sanchez and his wife’s family didn’t pay the home for housing his wife’s mother for almost two years. The lawsuit, which alleges there is an unpaid balance of $133,964.77, plus interest, also names Arminda Gonzales, Daniel Gonzales Jr., Daniel Gonzales Sr., and Sanchez’s wife, Guadalupe Olivia Gonzales SanchezThe complaint states that the family admitted the police chief’s mother-in-law, Arminda Gonzales, to the home on December 27, 2007, and signed a contract promising to pay. She was under the home’s care until September 24, 2009, when the family took her out of the home. While there were multiple requests for payment, no payment was ever made, according to the suit, which was filed on behalf of Mission Terrace by Lawrence Conlan of the Cappello and Noël law firm. Conlan didn’t return a call requesting comment. Steve McGuire, an L.A.-based attorney representing Sanchez and his wife, gave this statement: “Chief Sanchez and his wife deny all the allegations that have been made against them, and we intend to prove that they have no liability for all or any part of the amount demanded in the complaint.”
The suit alleges breach of contract, breach of oral contract, and unjust enrichment among other things. Sanchez has been named in lawsuits in the past, including two related to unpaid medical bills. They have since been resolved"
Even though Santa Barbara Board of Supervisor Gray called out the county for what appears to be misleading and fraudulent acts against this county's tax payers. More is required of her personal conduct than we have seen so far. You must remember she first addressed her concerns with the county budget last June calling the process a PONZI SCHEME.
Light at End of Budget Tunnel?
Thursday, June 17, 2010Fourth District Supervisor Joni Gray blasted the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors majority Friday as the quintet conducted their final deliberations on what to cut for the 2010-2011 fiscal year’s $833-million budget they were finalizing to go into effect July 1.
“I’d like all of you to leave this hearing with three words,” Gray said, actually using four words to initially describe her cryptic message. “Bus, bridge, and Ponzi scheme.”
She continued, “I feel like I’m speeding down a highway in a bus and there’s a sign that says, in half-a-mile the bridge is out,’ and yet nothing is being done to stop this bus.” While people everywhere are cutting back, she said, the board was “not taking their foot off the gas.” Gray then addressed her Ponzi scheme comment, saying the board was moving money “here and there,” even making reference to Bernie Madoff. “You’re all very bright and well-meaning, but I cannot support this bus going off the bridge,” she said
About my calculations and chart above in regards to the SBCERS Pension fund value. No it is not perfect but it is far more accurate than what the county has put before us. You see on the obligation side of my calculations for the pension fund I seam to be within 400 million dollars of the county. How ever on the current fund value the county and I are over TWO BILLION DOLLARS apart. Now all I used was the assumption value from a given point and the actual investment return percentage from the same point in time. So than I ask how can we be so far apart? Somebody seams to be playing with the funds value side.
