Managers Continue To Leave North County Transit District, Severance Adds Up

KPBS, have you contacted CalPERS about NCTD's practices? This sure looks like fraud and pension spiking! Why is NCTD keeping employees on the payroll when they are not doing any work? CalPERS already found that NCTD's contract with Tom Zoll was illegal. It looks like Tucker continues with his unethical disregard for the law. Shameful!

Emails Show NCTD Changed Paperwork After Info Request

Let me get this straight. After spending millions of dollars while the Sprinter was shut down for months, NCTD thought it was a good idea to spend $32,000 on "leadership" training for just 13 employees?

And after spending the $32,000 in taxpayer money NCTD wants to keep the report secret?

There seems to be a consistent pattern of NCTD trying to hide information from the public.

Taxpayers should not be forced to sue public agencies to get them to turn over records. Shame on NCTD and its board!

"War On Women Over 40": Lawsuit Claims Age, Gender Bias At NCTD

The news story said that this government agency was asked to comment but refused. Given the facts, I think it was appropriate for KPBS to point out that the negative comment came from within the government agency itself. Imagine if a story about Bob Filner received a negative comment from the mayor's office, it would be important to let the public know that.

Problems don't get much more obvious than this!!! Some of the positions revolved five times in three years? You have got to be kidding!! You don't have to hear anything else to know that there is a huge problem here!! Has there been any kind of independent investigation??

Roundtable: More NCTD Troubles, Jail Violence, Ramona Teacher Unrest, H-1b Visas

The Sprinter is only 5 years old, and is shut down for 2 months and counting!! This agency spends millions of dollars of taxpayer money. And the Board refuses to make any comment at all to the reporter? What kind of accountability is this????
