Simi Valley City Council Money/Ethics Issues
City of Simi Valley Compensation

The current Council changed the benefits,
but not for themselves,
only for others who get elected:
City Council Members first elected in November 2012 or later shall, in addition
to salary compensation set in accordance with the California Government Code,
receive a vehicle allowance and workers' compensation, Medicare, and Social
If eliminating the benefits is the right thing to do,
then why did not they make it effective immediately?
How about for the next election?
The simple fact is that they did not want to have it effect them,
other than as an election issue.
Also please note that Glen Becerra is costing the City of Simi Valley
$1500/month for health care coverage,
but he works full-time for SCE,
so he should be covered under their health care coverage.
This makes me wonder if he is cashing out his SCE benefits,
pocketing the money,
and costing the residents of Simi Valley a lot of money.
please realize that in the next election if you get rid of the three
you will save the City of Simi Valley close to $500,000 over the next 4 years.
If you get rid of the incumbents in the next election,
the City will save even more money.
Also it might be possible to have the people newly elected to change the
benefits for the current Council members effective for the next election.
Each election is separate and distinct.
A current Council member has to fill out the same forms and go through the same
process as those who are not currently on Council.
because those are in power,
they decided to exempt themselves.
go look at the Code of Conduct:
1. Act in the Public Interest
Recognizing that stewardship of the public interest must be their primary
will work for the common good of the people of Simi Valley and not for any
personal interest, and they will assure fair and equal treatment of all
persons, claims and
transactions coming before the Simi Valley City Council, boards, commissions,
It seems to me that their decision to exempt themselves from the change in
benefits is acting in their own personal interest,
not in the public interest,
which means that they violated the Code of Conduct.

Look at the donations that many of the City Council members have received.
Then ask yourself what those people expect in return for all that money.
It is also interesting that Mayor Huber has not updated his web page,
events have not been added,
but according to the documents it seems like he had a really nice Cinco de
with others paying for it.
Simi Valley Code of Ethics and Conduct

boards, commissions, and committees
Please note that while Barbra Williamson has violated the code of conduct
nothing has been done about it,
which makes the Code of Conduct worthless.
Also, as said above,
the Council actions in terms of the benefits also appears to be a violation.
