Marinwood CSD votes to EXTEND their Terms WITHOUT VOTER APPROVAL
The Marinwood CSD votes to extend their terms WITHOUT voter approval at a special emergency meeting on March 8, 2017. Several residents attended to object and were rudely ignored. The Marinwood CSD manager, Eric Dreikosen had created a report that offered only ONE possible solution to meet the demands of SB 415. In fact, the board did not need an emergency meeting to decide this issue and could have easily waited until the following weeks regular meeting for discussion. The board could have chosen to fill remaining terms at four years and have a five year term beginning with the November 2017 election. This was never discussed. It is an outrageous abuse of the democratic process to EXTEND terms by a vote and is the kind of thing only seen in corrupt dictatorships.
