Lloyd White’s lists his ‘Accomplishments’ as Beaumont Councilman
Who is Lloyd White and his fellow Councilmen Representing? It does Not seem to be the Citizens of Beaumont.
Beaumont City Councilman Lloyd White has listed his accomplishments since taking office. Let’s take a look at what Lloyd White considers accomplishments for his Constituents.
Fiscally Responsible Budget: ADOPTED
There is nothing ‘fiscally responsible’ about overcharging $8 Million Mello Roos CFD Property Taxes to pay Lawyers and Consultants. There is nothing ‘fiscally responsible’ about depositing Mitigation Fees and Special Taxes into the General Fund then spending the money on Lawyers, Consultants, and Parties. There is nothing ‘fiscally responsible’ about setting a Budget based on increasing taxes and flooding the housing market.
5 Year Capital Improvement Plan: APPROVED
A 5-year Capital Improvement Plan that includes building Potrero Interchange for the State and over $100 Million for a Sewer Plant that’s deteriorated beyond repair, but does not include the three Fire Stations and the Recycled Water Facility that are immediate needs for the current Citizens of Beaumont.
General Fund Deficit ($11 Million): ELIMINATED
The General Fund Deficit is over $100 Million, not $11 Million. ‘$11 Million’ is what Kapanicas used to claim was in ‘Reserve’. At the July, 2017, Beaumont ‘State of the ‘City’ Party; Lloyd White claimed that the City had an $6 Million Reserve, which is a Fraud, an intentional lie.
Beaumont Staff and Council plugged $8 Million into the General Fund: $5 Million transferred from the Sewer Fund that actually belonged to the CFD Funds and the $3 Million Mitigation Fee Deal with Heartland Area 5/Olivewood. Now the City has no money for Expand the Sewer to accommodate the additional houses, so ‘Council Approved’ increasing sewer fees on the current Citizens to pay for this Council’s poor choices.
Using Special Taxes and Fees collected for specific purposes for general fund purposes, whatever the excuse, does not lower the General Fund Deficit – it INCREASES the General Fund Deficit.
WRCOG Judgement ($67 Million): SETTLED
$42 Million was Embezzled out of the Mello Roos CFD Bonds with the memo ‘TUMF’. The CFD Property Owners are paying the Bond Debt for the $42 Million stolen TUMF money. In 2009 the Western Riverside Council of Governments notified the Beaumont City Council that they were Forging Government Documents and Embezzling TUMF money. For almost a decade the Taxpayers of Beaumont have paid millions in Legal Fees, and now it’s ‘settled’.
The WRCOG gets back enough money to pay THEIR legal fees, the Crooks get a slap on the wrist, Beaumont Lawyers’ pockets are full, and Beaumont Citizens get nothing. The CFD Property Owners are still charged for the Bond Debt to pay for the TUMF money.
‘Settled’, as in ‘It’s over, everyone’s pockets are sufficiently padded to close down this scam, thank you very much Citizens of Beaumont’.
Pardee Claim ($23 Million): SETTLED
Pardee Homes’ $23 Million Claim was created because ‘Council Approved’ trading $23 Million in Bond Debt for Mitigation Fees. Lloyd White has a lot of nerve considering this an ‘accomplishment’ when he created the lawsuit by approving bond debt the City has no legal right to acquire. The ‘settlement’ was a promise to find a way to trade Pardee Homes mitigation fees for bond debt.
BCVRPD Claim ($2.4 Million): SETTLED
The City of Beaumont acquired $12 Million in mitigation fees for ‘Regional Park’ purposes from the CFD Bonds, but embezzled all the money instead of transferring the money to the BCV Parks and Recreation.
‘Settled’ as in the $12 Million collected for Regional Park purposes is gone and the Citizens of Beaumont have nothing but bond debt and legal fees. It’s not a ‘win’ to fight the BCVPR instead of joining with them to file a Criminal and Civil Complaints to get the Citizens’ money back.
Community Facilities District Fund Reconciliation: COMPLETED
Over two years ago Kapanicas’ BFF Mike Busch of Urban Futures was paid $1/4 Million to reconcile the CFD Bond Fund Accounts. Busch completed the Reconciliation, produced a slideshow, and ‘Council Approved’ brushing it all under the rug.
‘Completed’ as in the City has known exactly who Embezzled the Mello Roos CFD Bond Money for two years, but have no intention of Filing Civil and Criminal Complaints to try to recoup the Citizens’ money.
Refinance for CFD/Mello-Roos Property Taxes (Phase 1): COMPLETED
Refinancing the Bonds does not benefit the Citizens, it only generates revenue for Lawyers and Consultants. All of the Bond money was stolen. The CFD Property Owners are paying massive Taxes for NOTHING and Lloyd White thinks allowing the Crooks to Refinance the Bonds is an ‘accomplishment’.
RDA Reimbursement ($4 Million): DISMISSED
$21 Million was embezzled out of the CFD Bonds with the memo ‘RDA’. The State had to issue fines and penalties to the City of Beaumont multiple times for ‘Council Approved’ Forged Documents. Lloyd White continued to ‘Approve’ Kyle Warsinski’s RDA scams even after the entire RDA scam had been exposed and the State was issuing fines and penalties.
SEC Investigation: RESOLVED
Receiving a ‘Cease and Desist Order to stop Forging Financial Documents in order to Defraud Banking Institutions’ is not exactly a ‘resolution’. The City has until February 22, 2018 to comply with multiple Orders including resubmitting Financial Statements and Bond Certificates of Completion that aren’t Forged. All the Council has done is hire another Law Firm.
Fiscal Sustainability Study: COMPLETED
A fiscal sustainability study of multiple ways to get more money by increasing Fees and Taxes on the Citizens of Beaumont. Beaumont’s fiscal sustainability study is dependent on rapid housing and warehouse growth, which only exacerbates the City’s Deficit, lack of Infrastructure, and Water Shortage.
The ‘New Council’ has been in office for three years. There are no Fire Stations or Recycled Water. Not one Elected or Appointed Official has been held accountable Criminally or Civilly for the $400 Million stolen from the Citizens of Beaumont, only what was stolen from the County.
Not one crook has been fired and not one honest lawyer, consultant, or staff member has been hired.
Someone needs to ask Lloyd White who it is that he and his fellow Councilmen are representing because it certainly does not seem to be the Citizens of Beaumont.
