                      Karen's Termination from District Service was not lmmediate or Unpredictable

            JoAnn Dearrnan was h ired without following the d istrict's policy on hiring procedures already in place at
   that tirne. One of the explanatÍons put forvuard by the dístrlct rnanager has been that Karen Willia ms fthe

   disciplinary action for several months with lhe goal of terminating her. This was told to me and other staff
   rnernbers. JoAnn w¡s hired specif ically lo replace Karen v¡hen her ernploymerrt was ultimetety ended. JoAnn

   iswhythepositionwasnot¿dvertisedandnohiringcornrnitteewasforrnedtoscreenappl[cants. Thiscanbe

 The point here is that JoAnn should have been properly screened before hiring her, no matter what the reason
 for bringing her on was. Because of the secrecy surrounding her introduction to the dístrict, she was never

      properlychecked. Both of the compañies she had defrauded ín the past were on the resume and should have
      been contacted.

      Misuse of the dlstrlct credlt carils started almost immediatelv âtter Karén left:

      Karen was on Administråtivê leave in March, April, May and pan of February. Her visa card was used in Pacifica
      on February24and 28. Karen lived in $an Leandro,,JoAnn lived in Pacifica. This appearsto have been use of
      Karen'scardbyJoArtnforpeBonoluse. HadanyonereviewedtheVisabillitwouldhaveraiÉedquestions,

 .    Ed Lí worked under Karen, The July,2009 Minutes state   that he has left the district. At the time I remember Bob
      Gay saying that JoAnn repor-ted that he vuas sâbotaging her work. At one time, Ed v¿as in charge of checking the
      Visabills,lbelieve. ThevisabillshowschargesattheSafewayinPacfficaonEd'svisacardonJuly23,2009.                 Ed

      livedinSanFrancisco,JoAnnlivedínPacifica, SorneoneshouldhavequestíonedthischargeandinterviewedEd

      ln June 2009, there is ¡ card in Jo Ann's name, There are charges for $5,000 and 10,000 for "surnrnit Defense"
      on JoAnn Dearrnan's visa card bill, Sumrnit Def ense is a criminal defense law firm (see attached adveitisement).
      Had anyone looked at the Visa bill, this should have raised an irnmediate alarm, The manager and board
     presldent were suppgsed to be signing checks, lhey ¡houtd heve reyiewed the bills before signing the checks,
     The argurnent has been rnade that JoAn¡r could have removed the bill in her na me, But it wou ld be natural to
     ãssumethatJoAnn had a card since Karen had a card and JoAnn wastaking her place, Furthermore, there is            a
     cover sheet to aJl the biJJs that gives a totâl amount owed on alJ cards. If one bjll Was missing it would have
     shown ín the total. JoAnn's vísa bill is under the närne JoAnn Dear¡nan Seeney,

                                                                                                               he rapid
     turnoverinstaffshouldalsohaveledtoquestionsfrornthemanager. Butthisappearstohavebeenleftent¡rely
     up to JoAnn, with lfttle oversight frorn the mänager. The f irst person hired (Randa llGrillli) wa-ç hired according
     to standard procedures. But the rest were left entirely up to JoAnn.

     Accord ing to the Board Meeting Minutes   for   2009-201,0:
              Ed Li lefr in July, 2009
             RarlallGrilliwas announced in the September2009 rninutes to replace him.
             ln the January 201"0 Minutes Randall has been termin¡ted ahd Sandra Ky has been h ired.
             ln the April 2010 Minutes Sandra Ky has been lermínated and Devina Walker has been hired.

            Devina was a friend of JoAnn's son and iived with JoAnn    for a while. The staff learned this while her son
     was working for the d istrict as a summer hire in 2010,

 she had sometimes used the name Seeney wãs not hidden frorn us. Her son went by the name Seeney, which
 was JoAnn's last name while she was married, she was getting divorced that year. Both these names were on

    Note on the Visa Bills for 2009

    Mr, Gay claims that he had no way of knowing that      Jo Ann Dearman was misuslng Dlstrict Visq cards because he was not
    the Administrator on the cards and there were extra cards he did not know about. He also clairhs he knew nothing of
    her other làst name - SeeneY.


       1)    First and foremost he was the manager, and the Finance Administrator was under hls direct supervision. He
             could have asked for the Visa bills and, if she did not give them to hirn voluntaríly, he could have demanded that
             she produçe them and dlsciplíne her when she did not let him see them. There ís no evídence that he even
             asked for them. On pageM2 of the March 2009 Board Meeting Minutes (aVailable on the district's website), it
             states (under the Finance Admlnlstrator's repoft) that is quoted here

                        Finanoe Administator arrd Disfricü Managg-r wìll meot ivlth the Ðiqnigt linanæ CÊmmittee on
                 March 30, 2009 to review all fi¡ance docu                                           Ffsglam a¡d all
                 budgetåry docurnents a¡d afror¡eview   decide                                      ing,

       2l As can be seen in Exhibit 1, the Visa bíll has a cover sheet whlch gives the total owed for all cards. lf a card ùas
          mlssing, the total calculated by adding up all the individual cards would not have added up to the total on the
          cover page.
       3) There was a card in Karen William's name, Mr Gay was fully aware of this card, When Karen left, her card was
          terminated and a new card was ¡nstituted in Jo Ann's name to replace it, lt would have been a logical
          assumption to look for this card. A quick review of the Visa bill would have revealed the end of Karen's card and
            the beginning of Jo Ann's.
       4)   On   the March    23,2OOg statement, there were charges that should have raised questions:
                  a.   2/27/ZOO} Safeway in PacÌfica $+s.ef (this could have been for food for a board meeting) (Karen lived in
                       San Leandro, Jo Ann lived in Pacifica)
                 b,    3/7/ZOO1 Safeway in Pacifica 5233.80 (why such a big charge so soon after the one above?)
                 c. State Fãrm lnsurance $1,363,49 (the district ls self^lnsured through the VCJPA, as far as I know we do not
                 have any insurance through state Farm, this should have raÍsed a red fiag)
      s) Jo Ann's card begins on March 6,2OOg. On the March 23 Visa bill there is a charge on Jo Ann's card for $839.68
         for imported tires. The district's Operations department is responsible for all tire purchases. As Operations
            Director, I had negotiated a special price for tires wìth Goodyear Tires in Burlingame and all of our tires were
            purchased from them. Prior to that all tires were purchased from Americã's Tires, again through a negotlated
            price, Both companles gave Us the lowest prices available locally for tires we needed for district vehícles. We
            had never purchased tires form the company listed on thls Visa bill'
      6)    On June 10, there were two charges on Jo Ann's visa card to 'Summit Defense" one for $10,000 another for
            $5,000. A quick search for thís name on the internet reveals that Summit Defense is "Northern California's
         premler Criminaf Defense Attorneys", This charge alone should have raised a red flag if it had been looked at.
      7l Ed Li also had a visa card. He was an accounting assistant under Karen WillÌams and then under io Ann. His
         card was generally used for ordering offlce supplies at Office Depot and for ordering food for Board meetings
            and Committee meetings. Ed Li left the district on June L0 (see board meeting minutes from June board
            meeting). But on July 23, Ed's card was used at Safeway in Pacifica. Ed lived in San Francisco, Jo Ann lived in

                            After what las happened over the last few years, we have completely
                            ¡estiuctured the Admínistrative Depariment with Jo Ann; Vika.and Sand¡a.
                            The significance of this rest¡ucture will cost the District $100,000 buTir/ill
                            carry the District into the nextten years.

                        The real story was the properff tax revenues were only going up by
                        $20,000 ayear and the expenditures by $112,090. it was only amatter of a

                                           lnternel Controls and Audits

           lnternal Controls have been reviewed and new ones implemented on several occasions as can
   be seen in board documents.

           ln the Board Meeting Minutes frorn Octobet 2007, page M2 under "District Annual Audit" it
  states that the audit was directed more at controls rather than journal entries. Karen Williams discussed
  this atthe time and initiated new procedures in response to the auditors.

           ln the Minutes from the March 2009 Board meeting (page M2) under the "Finance
  Admínistrator's Report" it states that the "Finance Administrator will make available all checks with
  documentation for the Boards approval prior to approval being authorized."

           ln the Minutes for the May 2009 Board meeting on page M8, under "District Fînancíal
  Committee" it says that at the Apríl 24th meeting of the FÍnance committee "FÍnancial documents were
  reviewed in great detail and discussed for submitting in future board pre-packets".

          ln January of 20L0 new   internal controls were announced by the Finance Department and the
  Auditor. ln the Manager's Report for the January 2010 Board Meeting, pageA5, under the item about
  the Audit Report for 2008-09, the manager announced a complete restructuring of the Administrative
  Department and new ínternal controls. The procedure includes "multiple checks and balances"
  including that the manager and board officer will review each check before signing it.

           Audits for the past 5 years are on the dÌs'trict's website, The last 2 pages of each review internal
  controls. For 2006-08, while Karen Williams was Finance Administrator, the auditors state that they "did
  not find any deficiencies in internal control over financial reporting that we consider to be materíal
  weaknesses", Karen had been praised at board meetings each yearfor having clean audits. ln 2009,
  after Karen left and Jo Ann had become Finance Adminístrator, there were two significant deficiencíes
  on the audit (page 28-29). The first was "accounting transactions not being properly recorded.,.lack of
  proper accrual of expenditures...". The second was that "...petty cash balances were negative,,.". This
 should have been a red flag at the time and should have caused the manager and the board to at least
 wonder if there were problems and keep an eye outfor irregularities in accounting. lnstead, both issues
 was blamed on the past finance Administrator and never given a second thought. ln 2010, the lack of
 properly recording accruals was flagged in the audit again {page 30).

         It has been stated ìn the news repeatedly that "much of the f¡aud was in the past year" or that
 the fraud was not as evídent in the first year (2009). However, on the last page of the audit lor 201L, it
 shows that the total amount of the theft was $650,000 and the amount attributed to the 2010-t L was
 340,000. This means that almost half the theft (5310,000J was in 2009-10, Despite two consecutíve
 audíts showing significant deficiencies in accounting procedures when all previous audits had been
 spotless, neither the manager of board officers questioned r,yhether there might be problems with the
 district's finance department and the department was given little oversight.
