Letter: Commissioner Brennan and the Harbor District
February 19, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Commissioner Sabrina Brennan is fighting the San Mateo County Harbor Commission to make the public marinas better for boaters, merchants and taxpayers.

Pietro Parravano and Will Holsinger take full health, dental and life insurance benefits for a part-time job at $40,000 per year for each of them for life. A relative of a former commissioner may be getting these benefits for life even though the former commissioner is dead.  

Commissioner Brennan doesn’t take these benefits. The state Legislature is proposing to stop benefits like this for part-time government officials.

The commission and marina staff are very strongly aligned against Commissioner Brennan. Board members are on record complaining about the lengthy meetings that have resulted from their blockading Commissioner Brennan. The board members average $1,100 an hour for the few hours they spend doing their job.    

The San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury is investigating the district. Only Commissioner Brennan is asking for an investigation into the “pile of missing checks” and requested the leaky sewer pipe under Johnson Pier be replaced. Commissioner Brennan pushed for Wi-Fi at both marinas. Commissioner Brennan has pushed for a new strategic plan to replace the outdated 1991 Master Plan. Commissioner Brennan requested an outside consultant to help the board overcome their disfunction.   

Commissioner Brennan has repeatedly requested the board to reconsider three commercial fish buying leases. This is at the request of the three fish buyers.   

Commissioner Brennan is against downsizing the Harbor Patrol because of the many lives it has saved.  

Vote these bums out of office. It won’t stop their benefits for life, but it will save money and improve the marinas.
