I'm not blaming PCM...the Golden Rain Foundation was complicit with the PCM folks for years. The devil is in the details...someone dug up all the credit card charges all the managers used. I have them, but the list is so overwhelming large, you probably wouldn't want to waste hours being amazed at just how much they ripped us off for.
I wonder how long the guy/gal had been skimming. Once Russ Disboro handed off the candy bag to Milt Johns, the stuff just hit the fan, and the irony is, GRF is still pandering to PCM. It never stops, but we are one board member away from taking away the majority vote from the crooks, but I don't see it happening for a long time.
When I moved here in 1998, my monthlies were $335 a month...they are presently $612+ a month and rising, and that's only half the story of misuse of the residents' money. PCM employees took no hits during this past recession. Seniors on fixed incomes saw their SS take a hit, and everything else they had to buy went up significantly. One of the Third Board Directors hadn't paid her property taxes for five years, and when that happens the info goes public. It was in the OC Register. She rides around waving to all her constituents in her pink golf cart. Maybe Denise Welch rings a bell. Her term ran out this past fall, but the Third board appointed her to a committee. Mysteriously and all of a sudden, her property taxes got paid. Go figure.
