Councilmen Mintz and Corbin’s Corrupt Junket to Sacramento

Twentynine Palms -How low can you people stoop? Councilmen Mintz and Corbin were paraded up to Sacramento by the real power in this city, — Schyster bond attorney, A. Patrick Munoz.

You all know Munoz, the  “Wolf of Twentynine Palms” who plunged the city into a $30 million bond debt for 30-years — putting a meat hook into the backs of  three generations  taxpayers — with no benefit whatsoever to the city or taxpayers — all with the direct help of Mintz and Corbin.

How interesting… both Mintz and Corbin are the only two  council people left of the city council  that VOTED FOR PP (Project Phoenix).

Get the picture. These bastards have unrelentingly squandered money since day one when they plunked their asses on the dais.  It’s  an outright gift and payback entitlement from Munoz because Mintz and Corbin enabled Munoz to earn $1,000,000 from his bond advise with no benefit to the city or taxpayers.

Even the Attorney General filed incriminating court documents that Munoz had “dirty hands”, that city’s legal action is a “sham” and that Munoz’s  involved in the city’s bond and PP has been unlawful, surreptitious, illegal and he has mislead all persons and entities involved with  this fiasco.

Lets call a spade a spade, the JUNKET IS payoff- corruption.

Note Mintz’s businesses are situated 3 1/2 blocks (0.3 tens of a mile) from his PP.  

Note that another attorney accompanied Munoz  to Sacramento to argue the legal matter against the county and the state. Thus, it’s obvious that Mintz and Corbin were along for the free ride.

  1. Great story Branson. More questions…
    1. Did the taxpayers of 29Palms pay for Minsk and Corbin to fly up to Sacramento?
    2. Did the tax entities, legal recipients of RDA funds-college and school district, foot this bill?
    3. Where is the agenda to discuss this expenditure and selection of the participants?
    4.Where are the minutes to authorize this expenditure of public funds?
    5. What are the exact costs to include, airfare, meals, hotels, taxi, personal stipends, mileage, airport parking?
    6. Did Patrick Munoz arrange for this trip to Sacramento? If so, why?

    Hi Margo,

    Tax dollars were used for the trip.
    The taxing entities did not foot the bill.
    There is no agenda on the trip.
    The authorization is part of the annual budget where I think 13K is set aside as a separate line item for council travel and training.
    To get the cost one would need to do a CPRA.
    Not so sure Munoz arranged the trip but the councilmembers had to speak to the CM and or city Attorney about going.
    How those two were chosen as compared to the others would more than likely have been a telephone call to each council member by the CM asking if they were interested in going and that is not a Brown Act violation.

    Hope this helps.

    As it turns out Dan Mintz and Jay Corbin were up in Sacramento attending the League of California Cities seminar for newly appointed mayors and mayor pro tems.

    This three day session ran from Wednesday, January 22 through Friday January 24.

    Both Corbin and Mintz missed the final day presentation in order to be at the morning court session about the suit against the State of California and the County of San Bernardino.

    Both Corbin and Mintz missed this part of the seminar:
