Power Corrupts, Does Jenny McAdams Have The Power?

Power to get her underage child a vaccine?

A Pacific Grove councilwoman who has passionately urged citizens to get vaccinated against Covid-19 apparently thought it was so important that she misrepresented her son’s age to get him inoculated against the disease. Multiple sources told The Pine Cone that Jenny McAdams, 46, first elected to the council in 2018, admitted to them that she misled health officials so her youngest son could get immunized. The Food and Drug Administration has only authorized the vaccine for children 12 years and older, but McAdams’ kid — an elementary school student — is several years younger than that.

Minnesota Developer Wants To Build Hotel At 176 Central

In an Aug. 25 civil complaint, Blue Wave Enterprises
and Jon Kramer contend that when they tried to submit
an application for the three-unit hotel at 176 Central Ave.,
city hall refused “to accept and process” the document.
The lawsuit argues the hotel should be allowed per Pacific
Grove’s local coastal plan.

Kramer first proposed a mixed-use development, in
cluding two residential units and a retail space. City staff
told him that he could not pursue the project because of
zoning issues. Kramer issued revised plans without the
residential units and replaced them with hotel rooms. The
city turned that request down, too, also citing zoning.
“City staff instead suggested that petitioners pursue
a subsequent ballot initiative to allow a hotel use on the
property, or to bring forward a new project consistent”

Special Need Children’s Service Founder Guilty Of Embezzlement

Hired a real accountant and was nailed by them. No surprise that the schools happily forked over the money with no proof of work.

Lolita Garcia, 60 the founder of a nonprofit called Central Coast Kids & Families, which provided services to families of children with special needs — was sentenced to four years in prison for embezzlement, tax evasion, submitting false invoices, and theft by false pretenses. Garcia billed schools for in-school services and a state nonprofit for in-home services that never happened.

Garcia got caught after an accountant she hired to do her finances noticed in 2015 that it appeared she had diverted charitable funds. The CPA tipped off the state attorney
general’s office, which notified the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office. The case was investigated by investigator Jackie Meroney and forensic auditor Sandra Kyzivat. They examined hundreds of invoices and timesheets for the 2013- 2014 and 2014-2015 school years and discovered that Garcia intentionally overbilled the districts and others for a total of $192,823

The P.G. planning commission on May 13 voted 4-3 to reject a petition by Valero owner Surya Raj Shrestha to sell hard alcohol at the business at 1140 Forest Avenue. Shrestha paid $1,140.50 to city hall to appeal the decision, which the city council was expected to consider Wednesday, but instead tabled it to July 7. “It is not fair for me not to have a full liquor license for my business,” Shrestha wrote in his appeal.
