Juliet Ellis the Assistant General Manager of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) was exposed both by the State, which is the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC).

As well as the SF Local Ethics Commission - and fined on a number on conflict of interests issues - many of them serious in nature.

Here is the stipulation order. Read the charges:

As Assistant General Manager for External Affairs of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - Juliet Ellis was fully aware of and cognizant of Code Section 87100 of the Political Reform Act Section 3.206 from making, participating in making, or attempting to use her official position to influence any governmental decision in which she had a financial interest.

In addition Juliet Ellis was prohibited by the San Francisco Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code Section 3.218 (a) from engaging in any employment activity, or enterprise that the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission has identified as incompatible in a statement of incompatible activities.

There are a number of other laws that were violated and in the Court of Law. If intent was involved the nature of the business at hand and the  many violations - could send Juliet Ellis to jail for a long, long time. For sure she cannot be trusted - ever.

There is ample evidence in 2012 as a member of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, Juliet Ellis attempted to use her official position to influence a governmental decision in which she had a financial interest, by communicating with SF Public Utilities Commission Staff, concerning a $200,000 contract and a $50,000 contract with Green For All in violation of Section 87100 of the Government Code.

Juliet Ellis did all this while she was a Board member of Green For All in 2012.

As the Assistant General Manager of External Affair she already makes over $200,000 plus benefits from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. Greed knows no bounds. 

The above behavior is tied to lack of morals, ethics, standards and most of all being - arrogant.

No government agency, no private agency, no one worth the salt will have anything to do with a person - who is arrogant as arrogant as Juliet Ellis is.

Even today - Juliet Elllis brags that she will be working at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) - until she is eligible to attain her tenure and pension. Time will tell.

Coming from the Non-Profit world where many; not all officials  - the few crooked ones such as Juliet Ellis wheel and deal - she was caught in the moment - of greed, avarice, blatant arrogance, trying to illegally gain profit for self. 

First and foremost she was not qualified to be on the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - that was a completely wrong choice. 

I attended most of those meetings - Juliet Ellis had nothing to offer - fluff was all she displayed - every time she opened her mouth.

When an opening arose - Juliet Ellis had the audacity to apply for the position of Assistant General Manager for External Affairs. She had no experience what so ever for this position. No knowledge with legislative matters - no knowledge about bills in Sacramento, on the State and Federal level. 

The woman Laura Spagian who handled this job before leaving for Houston - truly and sincerely did an excellent job. Juliet Ellis was hired - with inside influence. We all know this and this is the result.

Juliet Ellis has hired four women all her friends and this too is conflict of interest. She continues to harass other employees she has influence and charge over - as Assistant General Manager and this is totally - wrong.

On one particular day I had a scheduled meeting with the General Manager Harlan Kelly - on that day it so happened a Press Release was pronounced about Juliet Ellis - that she would pay back what she had received illegally - while working for SF Public Utilities Commission and that she would still be working.

This Press Release I found out was crafted by a woman Kay Fernandez who is the Benefits Manager - has no history about San Francisco and less about SF Public Utilities Commission - hired by Juliet Ellis. The wife of the present person who heads Green For All. What does this say to those that believe in decency?

When I made some calls to find out who crafted this Press Release - I was shocked.

The paradox was on this particular day - when I was meeting the General Manager - Kay Fernandez was present and did not mention a word about the Press Release and her involvement. I know Kay Fernandez and Kay knows me.

Kay's husband also happens to be the present Director of Green For All. And it gets better.

The SF Public Utilities Commission has had its share of corruption and blatant mishaps. Let us make no bones about it.

Juliet Ellis continues to defy the community - even challenging Dr Espanola Jackson who has worked hard for the community since the early 1950s and continues to work hard for the community.

Juliet Ellis keeps defying the community that matters - keeps interfering and bringing hurdles - she should be removed from office and with her the minions she has hired all of them should be let go.

While on Maternity Leave from the SFPUC - Juliet Ellis continued working for Green For All and received anywhere form $10,001 to $100,000 range in 2012.

The Staff of the Ethic Commission charged with investigating gathered some information but there is a lot still floating out there - and a thorough investigation is mandated.

On Wednesday at the Southeast Facility Commission Facility - Juliet Ellis will take pride that she was instrumental in initiating some rehabilitation work done by Miguel Galarza from Yerba Buena.

I was present at one of the first meetings when this work was assigned to Yerba Buena as a Job Order Contract - I know the difficulties Yerba Buena - encountered doing this job.

Plans are a foot to carry out Phase II when Phase I was a disaster.

Malia Cohen the District 10 Supervisor will cut the tape - and there will be fun fare - while all the time no one knows - the ins an outs - and how this job - adversely impacted many.

The many delays, lack of payment on time - and simply the lack of leadership within the Southeast Facility Commission the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.

The man in charge for day to day dealings one Sam Murray. Toye Moses plays second fiddle - waiting to retire - that is what happens if you cannot pull stings. 

One is relegated to the corner - the dunce cap on your head - and when the mistress says jump - you jump.

Juliet Ellis is one of the most despicable women I have met - she tried to challenge me many times - but, I stay away from the devil.

Patience wins - and this woman is now exposed for all the sordid activities committed; in your face and in defiance - much of which  she continues to exercise to this day.

I will be speaking about this situation and more at today SFPUC meeting, today Tuesday, January 28, 2014. You all should receive this article before that.
