Supervisor Dave Cortese calls for leadership change in San Jose POA

    October 22, 2014--The police union-backed candidate in the San Jose mayoral race is now calling for changes at the top of the Police Officers' Association.
    The call from Supervisor Dave Cortese came yesterday, after an opinion piece by a former cadet in the Mercury News said Association president Sergeant Jim Unland urged recruits to quit because of the ongoing pension reform fights with city officials.
    Unland has denied he told any recruits to quit.
    Cortese told NBC Bay Area Unland needs to step down due to the association's "toxic relationship" with city officials.
    It reflects comments Cortese made at a debate Monday at the School of Arts and Culture at Mexican Heritage Plaza, where he said "I'd like to see a scenario when neither he (Unland) nor Councilmember Liccardo are in charge of negotiations anymore, because they have presided over the loss of 400 police officers."
    Meanwhile, Cortese's opponent Councilman Sam Liccardo wants an investigation into whether Unland did tell recruits at the academy to quit.  Full Story

    While the water does need to be boiled for cooking and drinking, the water company says its safe for household uses like showering, washing clothes, and dishes.  Full Story

    Santa Clara County Officials have fired John Vartanian from his job as Director of Child Support Services. 
    The County had already suspended Vartanian in the wake of an NBC Bay Area report that found he had spent $55,000 of the county's money on travel and hotel costs. 
    The report alleged that Vartanian had violated county policy by keeping the resulting hotel points and frequent flyer miles for himself, rather than putting them back into county coffers.  Full Story
