SIXTEEN RESPONSES TO REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS FOR LEGAL SERVICES TO THE CITY OF CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA

ABSTRACT: At the City Council Regular Meeting, July 11, 2017, the City Council unanimously adopted “a Resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute a contract for legal services with Glen. R. Mozingo, Esq., APC (A Professional Corporation), as City Attorney for the initial term of July 15, 2017 to July 15, 2020.” PROCESS: “On Council direction and with staff assistance, the Ad hoc Committee developed a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and scope of legal services. The RFQ (Attachment 1: Request for Qualifications) was circulated on February 22, 2017 with a required response date of March 10, 2017 for submissions. The applicants were required to submit their qualifications such as overall capabilities, training, and areas of expertise; their experience; availability and accessibility; current practices; potential conflicts of interest; and fees and charges.”
“The City received 16 responses by the deadline. Independent of each other, the Committee members reviewed all of the applications based on the criteria in the RFQ and later met to discuss findings and conclusions. The Ad hoc Committee members coincidentally had taken the same approach of dividing the applications by region: long-distance, regional, and local applicants. Through separate reviews, the same conclusions were drawn as to the strongest top candidates to recommend to the City Council as finalists for interview. Additionally, major considerations in evaluating the candidates were the extent to which a candidate understood the Council’s objectives in terms of legal representation, accessibility, and whether there would be potential conflicts of interest in serving the City.”
“Through the Ad hoc Committee, the City Council extended an invitation to three candidates to interview before the entire Council and City Administrator. At the completion of those interviews, and after careful consideration and deliberation, Mr. Glen Mozingo, Esq. was identified as the preferred candidate that possessed the desired qualifications and experience, and has a track record of being an approachable problem-solver in a variety of environments.) The Council also determined that Mr. Mozingo had the interpersonal and solution-oriented skill set desired and extensive experience in the scope of services that will be required by the City.”

CITY ADMINISTRATOR CHIP RERIG’S PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT of The Carmel Pine Cone Guarantees The Carmel Pine Cone Will Not Incite ‘a Groundswell of Public Opinion Among the Residents Through Articles Generally Biased Against the New Administration’

 The Carmel Pine Cone

The local newspaper incited a groundswell of public opinion among the residents through articles generally biased against the New Administration.

SOURCE: CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA A GOVERNANCE REVIEW
Monterey County Civil Grand Jury, 2015

EXHIBIT A:
  In an e-mail from City Administrator Chip Rerig to city staff members regarding Rerig’s appointment of former Commander Paul Tomasi to the position of Chief of Police/Director of Public Safety, dated December 16, 2016 at 10:07 A. M., City Administrator Chip Rerig stated to city staff members, in part, as follows: “Good morning. As you're likely aware, I recently appointed Paul Tomasi as our Chief of Police/Director of Public Safety… I was remiss in not sending you the news of Paul's appointment to the entire staff team earlier. You should not have learned of my decision through our local media outlets, and I apologize for this oversight. My only defense is that I wanted to insure that the story was not first reported by a news group other than The Pine Cone.

Subject: Paul Tomas

EXHIBIT B: Realizing that the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea provided city council agendas to The Carmel Pine Cone on Thursday afternoons prior to providing them to the public on Friday afternoons, Carmelite Jeff Baron communicated to the city council on March 7, 2017 that it is “an issue of fairness,” “I don’t think it’s fair that The Pine Cone gets any idea of what’s on the agenda before the public does. You guys in the city, you’re responsible to the public, not to the press.”

MAYOR DALLAS & CITY COUNCIL CONFIRM 2015 Monterey County Civil Grand Jury Conclusion ‘That the actions of the Mayor and City Council appeared to place more importance on…unfavorable media exposure…than on conscientious oversight and governance’ Two Years Later

EXHIBIT A:  Compensation overpayment to then-Public Safety Director/Police Chief Michael Calhoun between March 2015 and September 2015 for responsibilities and duties of city administrator after the hiring and commencement of duties by City Administrator Chip Rerig in March 2015, associated CalPERS pension spiking and inflated compensation between October 2015 and retirement in December 2015. While The Carmel Pine Cone neglected to report on the aforementioned facts and circumstances specifically involving City Administrator Chip Rerig, Mayor Steve Dallas, then-Public Safety Director/Police Chief Michael Calhoun, taxpayer monies and CalPERS pension ramifications, The Carmel Pine Cone reported on a similar circumstance involving former Fire Chief of Monterey, Carmel and Pacific Grove Andrew Miller.

EXHIBIT B:  The fake news article published by The Carmel Pine Cone regarding then-Human Resources Manager Maxine Gullo’s “discovery” that the CalPERs cost sharing changes approved by the city council had not been implemented when an examination of city correspondence proves that then-Finance Manager Paul Wood and Finance Specialist Deanna Allen repeatedly communicated to the city their concerns about CalPERS cost sharing implementation several months prior to City Administrator Chip Rerig’s hiring of Maxine Gullo as human resources manager. Interestingly, The Carmel Pine Cone belatedly reported the “resignation” of then-Finance Director Paul Wood on page 12A, March 17, 2017, ten weeks after Paul Wood’s resignation on January 9, 2017.

EXHIBIT C: Consent Agenda Item 19 Consideration of a Resolution of the City Council of the City of Carmel-by—the-Sea adopting the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea General employees union – an affiliate of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, United Public Employees of California, LIUNA/UPEC, Local 792, AFL-CIO; and the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea Management Employees Union - an affiliate of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, United Public Employees of California, LIUNA/UPEC, Local 792, AFL-CIO was approved by the city council at the June 6, 2017 regular meeting. The Staff Report, submitted by Maxine Gullo, Human Resources Manager, and approved by Chip Rerig, City Administrator, included the RESOLUTIONstating the inclusion of Exhibit A, "WHEREAS, the City and LIUNA have reached an agreement which is embodied in the attached Memorandum of Understanding (Exhibit A) for the period of January 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019.” However, not only was Exhibit A not included in the agenda packet for the public or city council members, but the RESOLUTION included the approval of THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU) BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE CITY OF CARMEL-BY-THE SEA MANAGEMENT EMPLOYEES UNION - AN AFFILIATE OF THE LABORERES’ INTERNATIONAL UNION OF NORTH AMERICA, UNITED PUBLIC EMPLOYEES OF CALIFORNIA, LIUNA/UPEC, LOCAL 792, AFL-CIO AS OF JANUARY 1, 2017 even though city correspondence proves that negotiations and discussions were continuing and ongoing between Ryan Heron, Labor Relations Representative, United Public Employees of California Local 792, and city representatives, on the date of the city council meeting. The Carmel Pine Cone has yet to report on the aforementioned facts.

The 2015 Monterey County Civil Grand Jury report also included FINDING 15. The governance and administration of the City is unduly influenced by the reportorial and editorial practices of The Carmel Pine Cone. In the aftermath of that finding, two years later, it appears that Mayor Steve Dallas and City Council Members place more importance on The Carmel Pine Cone than “conscientious oversight and governance” on behalf of the public and in so doing the current mayor and city council have “vacated their responsibilities of oversight and inquiry” today as well. Déjà vu.
