In the Spring of 2015 the City was scrambling to cover up their corruption. Emails between former Chief of Police Frank Coe and Russ Bogh show that Bogh helped organize both the phony Fire Station Committee and the phony Finance Committee. (Download bogh-fire-finance-committee-2015-emails PDF.)
The Fire Station Committee resulted in a report confirming that yes, Beaumont built 20,000 houses, but never built fire stations. Some houses in Beaumont are over 20 minutes from fire and safety protection. The Report was swept under the rug, the Committee was dissolved, and to this day Beaumont Citizens still have no fire stations.
From 2010 to 2016 the City of Beaumont funded the position of Executive Director with the Beaumont Chamber of Commerce for Russ Bogh’s wife Sheri.
