Former Sierra Madre Mayor Bart Doyle's El Monte Transit Village Redevelopment Project Takes A $26,500,000 State Funding Crisis Hit

An article up on the Sacramento Bee "Capitol Alert" site this morning entitled "5,300 delayed projects listed," reveals the following:

The state Department of Finance has released a 161-page, 5,300 item list of public works projects that will be suspended or delayed indefinitely because of the state's cash crunch ... The list was published as the Pooled Money Investment Board, an obscure agency that controls disbursements from the state treasury, began a meeting to determine whether last month's suspension would be modified for individual projects. 

You can access the list of suspended projects by clicking here. Scroll down to page 154 for the EMTV listing.

Among the items listed for suspension or indefinite delay due to the state cash crunch are several projects of interest to Sierra Madre. Our city faces a loss of $56,227 on an unidentified project. The San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (the local SCAG cabal, which lists Joe Mosca as a member) takes a $75,829 hit. But speaking of SCAG, the big loser here? Bart Doyle and his Titan Corporation's famed redevelopment project, El Monte Transit Village. The amount of the state check that won't be arriving anytime soon? A cool $26,543,000. It is one of the larger sums identified on the report.

Of course, you might be wondering why Titan would have been the beneficiary of so much of our hard earned tax money. But that's redevelopment for you ..

  1. Wow, good article, Sir Eric.
    Always good to keep one eye on old Dart Boil, whoops, I mean Bart Doyle.

  2. $26.5 million for this El Monte thing? What's that all about? Are they getting our money because they couldn't sell off all those condos? Kind of like all the banks that are getting our dough from the Feds, maybe?

  3. That list of shut down/suspended projects is staggering. It sure makes clear the level of economic collapse the state and country is in.

  4. Anybody know what the $56,000 Sierra Madre project was?

    Our good friend Karma Bell works with Bart. See the red framed box on the right hand side.

    God. That place looks like a cross between a Palm Desert retirement community and the set from the old Patrick McGoohan TV show 'The Prisoner.'

  7. Humm.
    The El Monte Transit Village gets tax dollars from the State of California. Karma Bell works for the El Monte Transit Village and Bart Dolye. I wonder if the El Monte Transit Village made a contribution to Ms. Bell's recent campaign for City Clerk. Do we want a City Clerk with such such ties?

  8. We knew why Bart wanted Karma in that city clerk position, this proves we were right.
    Thank GOD Nancy won!
    Can you imagine if that woman would have gotten in.
    Keep digging researchers.....we'll nail every last damn one of these dirts.

  9. My heart dropped when I read the list of shut down projects, it's worse than my gut told me. Everyone band together, we're going on a bumpy ride.

  10. Bart Doyle will go down in history as the worst public official Sierra Madre ever had.
    This man and his gang of "shady" politicians, Lambdin,Stockley, Torres, Mosca, Buchanan, Joffe, and other assorted downtowndirts, look what they did to One Carter? Look at the financial mess they have gotten us in.
    Had Measure V been defeated......we would be nearly ruined right now.
    Keep Bart Doyle and his associates like Karma Bell out of public office.
    Do not vote for anyone who is associated with Lambdin, Stockley, Buchanan, Mosca, Susan Henderson, Doyle........
    These people and their pals do not have the best interest of the citizens of Sierra Madre....they are interested only in their own agendas.
    Stay tuned, Sierra Madre, Sir Eric will expose them all.

  11. Anonymous @ 6:29PM: You have to admit though, that if is this "El Monte Transit Village" was getting $26.5M, then there has got to be a lot of other waste on that list as well.

  12. It's the perception of the cup half empty,not half full that that gives me pause. These stunning cuts will drastically effect the State of California in a profound way, including waste or not.

  13. Sierra Madre: The amount to the city is posted under Prop 45 money. It is related to housing. What kind of housing is not stated. Perhaps it has something to do with the Senior Housing. Don't know.

  14. Well, I guess we know why Karma Bell was being promoted so heavily (and unfairly) for City Clerk. I guess we can also expect some other real hum-dingers running in the next election--even if it isn't this year, as Susan Henderson seems to think. Or should I say 'wish' Well, stay tuned. She has had to file a campaign disclosure of her donors so check it out. Contact the City Clerk.

  15. I just love this website! No way to know what is going on Sierra Madre without Sir Eric. Thank you, sir.

  16. By Jove you people are brave - carry on!

  17. Does the city clerk have a email address?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just list the Bell donors, it's faster that way. Saves us all time.

  19. Good idea. Let's list them and post them.
    Enough is enough with these people who profess to be good Sierra Madre residents and volunteers, members of civic groups, who actually have hidden "business" agendas of their own.
    I am not implying that all members of civic groups in town and volunteers in town are part of this Bart Doyle group of dirts.
    Most people in this town are decent and honest.
    However....we must be aware of those with these hidden agendas.
    They must be known for what they are up to.

  20. Old kentucky, just look at the people the Dirts use to disseminate their Public Relations - the late Jim Snider and now, Susan Henderson.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You're right, Anonymous
    Jim Snider, a pathetic end stage alcoholic and Henderson, a woman who lies and cheats, political associates, "friends", cleaning women.
    Used her paper last year to slander two of the most respected women in Sierra Madre.
    Nancy Sue Shollenberger and MaryAnn MacGillivray.......two women with service hearts who have worked in the interest of the people of Sierra Madre for decades!

  22. And let's not forget other Dirt P.R. avatars including Bill Coburn, Beth Buck, Steve Tobia and Terry Miller.
