Old investigation into Supes still open

In the past month of brouhaha surrounding the chairmanship of the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors, there’s been a lot of talk — and some action – about calling for an investigation into whether or not the state’s open meeting laws had been violated at the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors.

It’s not something that falls under the purview of the Fair Political Practices Commission. But the political watchdog does currently have an “active and open” investigation into members of the Board of Supervisors, according to the FPPC today.  Here’s the original story about the complaint filed in 2012. Here’s a story on the creation of the PAC.

That was the year Measure D failed. It would have extended term limits. The political action committee supporting the measure was primarily funded from the campaign committees of former Supervisor Ken Vogel and current Supervisors Steve Bestolarides and Carlos Villapudua.

An opponent of the term-limits measure thought the three had run afoul of state campaign-finance law and filed a complaint that led to the investigation, which is still open more than two years later.
