Final request for public records

To: Modesto City Council, Jack Crist, Mike Milich, and Jean Zahr.

It is obvious that all attempts to secure the public documents that I have requested will be met with silence.

Therefore on June 16th, 2004 we will ask the Superior Court of Stanislaus County to enforce those rights guaranteed by the public records act.

Thank you,
Carmen Sabatino

Patrick McGrath's testimony

The Modesto Bee report was "Sabatino gets continuation" The prosecution guarenteed a delay by making available more discovery the morning of the April 7th hearing. The continuation gave the Bee another opportunity to list the false allegations against former Mayor, Carmen Sabatino.

What did the Modesto Bee know and when did they know it? What do they know now?

From Mark Vasche's column on Sunday April 11, 2004.

"Our goal -- in Turlock, and in Modesto, Merced, Manteca and all the other communities we serve -- is to give people news and information they can use to make wise decisions, both large and small, in their lives as residents, consumers and voters".

The following letter was submitted to the Modesto Bee on Sept 10, 2001.

Dear Boardmembers:

Full Disclosure Now Comment

The following (in Italic) is an excerpt from the April 4th column by Jeff Jardine, "Is cash worth trash mountain?"

The column seems to be relatively straight forward by Jardine's standards until you arrive at the last sentence in paragraph six.

"Supervisors killed the plan in January 2001."

More on the Landfill

Modesto City Council members Janice Keating and Will O'Bryant have joined Reagan Wilson, Michael Krausnick, and the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors in covering up the landfill scandal.

They have refused to consider hiring independent council to pursue possible litigation against Stansilaus County for over charging Modesto rate-payers for garbage collection. For the Modesto rate-payers, this amounts to over $7 million in over-charges.
