LASSEN COUNTY DISTRICT 2 SUPERVISOR
Elected: 2017-2020 (1)
Supervisor Teeter Did Not Recuse Himself
From The Vote to Give $5,000
Chamber of Commerce
Teeter 700 Form
Newly elected District 2 Supervisor David Teeter has made it clear that his interest first is to promote his own interest. Teeter is Co-owner of Margies Book Nook and would benefit directly from voting on any event that would directly benefit his business. Kan We Help asked that he recuse himself from the vote to give the Lassen Chamber of Commerce $5,000 for an event within the HUSA business district. He declined to recuse himself. If he does this again, Kan We Help will file a complaint with the FPPC.
Teeter was the former HUSA President ( a District formed that collects fees from Merchants in "historic uptown Susanville" and is a member of the Chamber of Commerce). HUSA gives a large part of their fees to the Chamber of Commerce each year.
Teeter placed an item on the Board of Supervisors Agenda that would just give away $5,000 to an organization that he is a member of. The first attempt, on March 21, was tabled to March 28, 2017. On March 28, 2017 Teeter voted yes to give the Chamber of Commerce a gift of $5,000.
The Chamber of Commerce exists to promote their members businesses. They hold events, often fundraisers to raise money for their projects.
The representative from the Chamber of Commerce presented a vague and short presentation to the Supervisors today. The Chamber wants the County Supervisors to give them $5,000 to hold an anniversary event of the Old Courthouse on the 200 block of Lassen Street in Susanville on September 16, 2017.
The Chamber of Commerce is a frequent Requester of Money at the Board of Supervisors meetings and the Board Members have never asked for ANY ACCOUNTABILITY.
MAYBE IT IS TIME TO...............
THIS WAS A GROSS CONFLICT OF INTEREST
SUPERVISOR DAVID TEETER
Supervisor Teeter wants to give the
Republican Chamber of Commerce $5,000
an event for the 100th anniversary of the Old Courthouse
Board of Supervisors 3/21/17 Agenda
The County does not ask for ANY ACCOUNTABILITY for the thousands of dollars they give to the Chamber of Commerce.
Supervisor Jim Chapman's Last Sleezy Act
Before He Leaves Office on December 31, 2016
Chapman gets to go to the CSAC party ($3,000 in Palm Springs) on November 28 for one last paid vacation. Supervisor Chapman leaves office on December 31, 2016.
Chapman told the public that the $3,000 trip for his successor, David Teeter, was warranted because it was training for "New Supervisors". The six day trip includes only a day and a half of "training".
On October 25, 2016, BOS Chairman Chapman did not consider approving expenses for the second "New Supervisor" from District 1, but always intended to go to the CSAC party himself and bamboozled the other four Supervisors to appoint him to the CSAC Board again with David Teeter as his Alternate.
Chapman leaves office in 46 days.
SUPERVISOR CHAPMAN'S REASON
FOR JUST SENDING
"HIS" REPLACEMENT, DAVID TEETER,
TO THE 6 DAY PALM SPRINGS
ANNUAL CSAC CONFERENCE........
to put him on the Board of Directors of CSAC
The new District 1 Supervisor gets skrewed.....what a surprise
Chris Gallagher was not informed of the Lassen County nomination
being made at this conference
LAST DAY TO REGISTER SUPERVIS0R GALLAGHER IS NOVEMBER 15, AND CHAPMAN DID NOT PUT THE EXPENDITURE ON THE 11/15/16 AGENDA?
Supervisors approve $3,000 all expenses paid
Palm Springs vacation
for David Teeter
Supervisors claim they may send District 1 Supervisor-elect to this 1 1/2 day training for 6 days (?) but the deadline for registration is November 15. The Supervisors do not meet again until November 15 and if they vote to send the new District 1 Supervisor the registration cost will increase because of the Supervisors poor planning.
The Supervisors could have approved sending, at the 10/25/16 BOS meeting, the District 1-elect Supervisor on this vacation but DIDN'T..........
In addition, Supervisor Jim Chapman never mentioned this when he arranged for his replacement David Teeter to attend this six day vacation back in September.
Very little of the CSAC Annual meeting, in Palm Springs, relates to new training for a new County Supervisor.
The upside: The fees do include the next two one day training sessions
The newly elected Supervisors for District 1 & District 2
will take their Oath of Office
on January 10, 2017
Today and until they take the Oath they are private citizens and are not entitled to any benefits
unless Supervisor Chapman breaks the law for his protege David Teeter
Supervisor Chapman, the Supervisor of "privilege" is trying to give "HIS" replacement David Teeter
a $2,800/6 day vacation
to Palm Springs (CSAC Annual Meeting) before he takes office on January 10, 2017
Will Chapman be joining him?
Kan We Help will check.............
Does Supervisor Chapman Intend
to Resign Before October 25?
Unless Jim Chapman resigns and David Teeter takes the Oath of Office before October 25, David Teeter is not entitled to receive anything, including a six day vacation to Palm Springs
David Teeter will not be a County employee until January 10, 2017
Will the retiring County Counsel let this happen ?
Lassen County District 2 Supervisor Chapman will attempt to give his replacement, David Teeter
an early Christmas present:
All expense paid six day vacation to Palm Springs on November 29, 2016
Chapman submitted this expense on September 1, 2016. Teeter doesn't take office until January10,2017 and cannot receive any pay, benefits or entitlements until he is sworn in.
Chapman can do this, if four other Supervisors break the law and approve this expenditure at their 10/25/16 meeting
There will be an run-off election for District 1 Supervisor on November 8.
Where does the winner of
District 1 get to go....?
David Teeter does business with Lassen County. The Supervisors will vote on this Conflict of interest for Teeter at the October 25, 2016 meeting (Agenda H-2).
If this is not approved, Lassen County can no longer do business with Teeter's business.
approved, Teeter can continue to do business with the County and
would be required to recuse himself on any vote that would effect him and his
