Los Osos needs an unbiased investigation
November 4, 2015
OPINION By PEGGY PAVEK
I’m very concerned about the way in which Los Osos Community Services District Board President Mike Wright, Vice President Marshall Ochylski and attorney Mike Seitz went about “selecting” an “investigator” for the matter concerning General Manager Kathy Kivley.
Clearly, they chose one of the “good old boys” from San Luis Obispo to help with the cover up. Knowing Jim Gardiners track record of bias and cover ups, they knew exactly what the outcome would be.
They have spent thousands of rate payers dollars for a sham investigation to justify keeping Kivley on as general manager. However, by keeping Kivley on as General Manager, they are opening up the rate payers of Los Osos for hostile work environment law suits, bankruptcy and many other issues.
I’m very sure that Seitz knew, or should have known, that “investigator” Jim Gardiner lost a very important “hostile work environment” case he was working on for Burbank Police Department.
I have personal knowledge of the very successful Los Angeles based attorney who won that case and I will be very happy to personally put anyone in touch with him who have issues with “work place harassment” in Los Osos.
I have some very important questions that need to be put to Seitz, Wright and Ochylski and they are as follows:
Were you in touch with Attorney Richard Kreisler to hire Gardiner to conduct the sham investigation? Kreisler is well known for his abilities to assist in covering up misconduct and corruption in small municipalities and has worked with Gardiner many times.
I will just site one example at this time and that was when Kreisler and Gardiner were able to “shutdown” a potential scandal in La Mesa. That was when the mayor of La Mesa was found “passed out drunk” in his car by two La Mesa police officers.
I believe the rate payers of Los Osos deserve a fair, impartial and unbiased investigation into the Kivley matter and we do not need the “investigation” conducted by the very people who hired her. We deserve an outside independent investigation by someone not controlled by Seitz, Wright and Ochylski. Please help us get a real investigation.
