    A CONVERSATION WITH ERNEST AND JOE GALLO

    in News

    A CONVERSATION WITH ERNEST AND JOE GALLO


    What if Mayor Sabatino had borrowed $15 million?


    As I assumed the office of Mayor there were unresolved issues that had to be dealt with.  A significant issue was whether or not the city of Modesto was going to contribute $15 million to the new performing arts center. Ironically the vote to contribute the money was to have been taken a few weeks before my election.


    I contacted the city's director of finance and asked him if he could get $15 million. he replied that it was possible but said Mayor you will not like the balloon payment.


    Even though the county had already committed to their $15 million, because they were able to sell the tobacco tax money that was coming to the County, I decided that I could not commit to $15 million we did not have.


    I invited Ernest and Joe Gallo to the Mayor's office for lunch. I informed Ernest Gallo that the city simply did not have the money. He replied why am I not surprised. I then asked him if he wanted me to tell Marie Gallo and he replied, no, I will tell her myself. I have always felt that Ernest Gallo was truly not surprised at the city's financial condition and was satisfied with my decision.


    Later the council did commit to sidewalk and street improvements around the center.


    Today the County subsidizes the Gallo performing arts for $1.2 million a year. The council’s decision not to participate was met with widespread resentment but I can take satisfaction in the fact that the city of Modesto does not face the burden of a $1.2 million subsidy.

    MODESTO BEE SPONSORS WATER SUMMIT

    in News

    Modesto Bee sponsors water Summit


    July 15, 2015   7-9 at the Gallo center


    The forum will be moderated by founder and former president of the Great Valley Center and former Mayor of  Modesto, Carol Whiteside.


    Whiteside left the great Valley Center when Bob Gallo discontinued financing the venture.


    As Mayor of Modesto. she is known for “Curtains up 88” that gave us the convention center and closed 10 Street which created a campus for the then First Baptist Church and cut off downtown Modesto.


    Whitesides credits are many. She was paid $15,000 with M ID money to lobby for the sale of water to San Francisco.


    It would be more informative, if the Bee had Carol Whiteside as a panelist, rather than the moderator.


    The five panelists are Jeff Cowan, Randy Fiorini, Sarge Green, Felicia Marcus, and Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen.


    The panel will engage in a conversation on valley water.


    The panel will bring their facts, viewpoints, and opinions to the discussion.


    In the interest of transparency and qualifications, each panelist should be asked if they went to the microphone during M ID meetings to oppose the sale of our water to San Francisco.


    We already know that the moderator was paid to lobby for the sale.


    We should thank the editors of the Modesto Bee Ken Riddick, Joseph Kieta, and Mike Dunbar.
