Pat objected to the apparent favoritism shown by councilmembers to the downtown developer who gave them money.

Councilmembers took money from the downtown developer, then made an unusual agreement to delete requirements that the developer (their donor) purchase a project performance bond. FOR DETAILS, SEE THIS PAGE and THIS PAGE

Pat spoke out against and moved to cancel lifetime pensions and medical reimbursement for former councilmembers.

There's no justification for such a large benefit for spending 5 years (part-time work) on the council. The council members voted their own lifetime benefit into existence! Remember that the ex-members of the council who have organized and promoted the recall against Pat would face the loss of this valuable perk if Pat is successful. Remember President John F. Kennedy's suggestion: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

Pat cautioned council members who were in conflict of interest from voting to approve $1.5 million payment to the city's "garbage company".

Jerry Nabhan, OWNER of Bay Counties Waste Services made campaign contributions to members on the City Council. Nabhan gave Tony Spitaleri $300 and Chris Moylan $100. The now ex-council members say this is a fabrication. But these recordings are on file in the City Clerk's office. What are the ex-council members trying to deny? Well, after the money was taken, council members approved an additional $1,517,508.00 payment to Jerry Nabhan's garbage company. Large rate increases resulted for residents, including cash-strapped seniors. This is a conflict of interest and not in the best interest of the Sunnyvale residents!

[Update May 30, 2014] A clarification to this section was requested recently. The statements above do not suggest that money was given to ex-council members personally, instead it was given to their campaigns. The activities were legal, but there was a conflict of interest.
