SamTrans and Whistleblower's statement false financials.

Original post made by Michael G. Stogner, another community, on Sep 23, 2013

These allegations should be very easy to verify. Note Mike Scanlon is a very busy man with many hats in San Mateo County, He is President of Service League of San Mateo County which is the organization behind getting our New Jail built and funded without voter approval. He is also responsible for San Carlos Village Transit Project.

One small example,

David Ramires, one of several whistleblowers who came to NBC Bay Area with their concerns. “I provided the financial [statements], I know what’s going on.”

Ramires worked in the finance department from 2001 to 2012. His duties included preparing Caltrain’s monthly financial statements for the board of directors. But Ramires told NBC Bay Area, before those numbers were presented, he was routinely instructed to artificially inflate Caltrain’s expenses, so management could ask for more taxpayer money.

Mr. Stogner may have good intentions (or they may be purely self serving), but my personal experience is that he does not conduct research or any form of due diligence to validate his criticisms or support for issues or individuals. Mr. Stogner, you advocate getting involved in county concerns, but blind criticism/support is not responsible citizenship.
