Comparing the Case Against Ross Mirkarimi with the Case Against DPW Director Mohammed Nuru – “Standards of Decency”

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Today Larry Bush of CitiReport is looking at how Mayor Ed Lee is applying a standard unevenly.

Check it:

“…the appointment of Mohammed Nuru to be permanent Director of the Department of Public Works delivers one of the city’s most important agencies into the hands of a man who allegedly protected a serial sexual harasser, fired his own Equal Opportunity officer who had objected, was at the center of election scandals in 1997, 1999 and 2003, was involved in using a city-funded agency for political campaigns, and used thousands of dollars in city-funds to beautify his own block.

If ever there could be a case study on the application of the city charter’s proscription against “conduct that falls below the standard of decency, good faith and right action impliedly required of all public officers,” it would be the case of Mohammed Nuru.

Instead those standards were brushed aside by Mayor Ed Lee who extravagantly praised Nuru when appointing him two weeks ago…”

Trouble in the City Family? Police Officers Association vs. Officers for Justice re: Endorsing Paul Miyamoto over Chris Cunnie

Monday, October 31st, 2011

[UPDATE: Larry Bush of CitiReport has more on this topic. And Rachel Gordon has more on this “neck-in-neck” race]

Well, look what just turned up at the City Family Dead Letter Office - it’s a missive from San Francisco Police Officers Association President Gary Delganes to Officers for Justice President Julian Hill.

It’s all about:

Loyalty;

The endorsement of Captain Paul Miyamoto by Officers for Justice;

Betrayal against “one of our own”;

Solidarity with African American officers;

The pension of one of the highest-paid police lieutenants in the United States;

How Chris Cunnie made Julian Hill one of the highest-paid police lieutenants in the United States;

Betrayal, again; and

An invitation to the next POA meeting on November 16, 2011

Is this good?

Is this meant for public release?

I know not.

Run Ed Co-Chair’s Nonprofit Got $1 Million from Lee’s Office
by LARRY BUSH on 06/29/2011

“Gordon Chin, one of four co-chairs of the Run Ed Run campaign to draft Interim Mayor Ed Lee into this fall’s mayoral contest, heads a nonprofit awarded $1,136,000 directly from Mayor Lee’s office this year, an increase of more than $200,000 over the previous year.

“In total, Chin’s Chinatown Community Development Center received an additional million dollars from other city agencies and is in line for a multimillion contract as part of the Chinatown subway project. Between 2008/09 and the current year, the nonprofit has received $8,017,767 in city contracts, according to the Controller’s records.

“During this period, Chin and at least one of his board members have made political contributions to members of the Board of Supervisors and to candidates for the Board, despite a 2006 law that bans contributions from officers and directors of nonprofits that are negotiating or receive city contracts…”
