Sticks and Steins
We took a look at this issue as well as a look at the amount of money the commissioners have donated to various elected officials here. By the way, nearly two weeks after Fuentes was confirmed by City Council, Cynthia Ruiz remains on the Board's website. You got to love how fast ITA moves! Maybe they only have dial-up.
As noted before as well, Stein is the wife of longtime playmaker and developer Ted Stein, who has surfaced in play to pay allegations while serving as an member of the Airport Commission. A contractor who lost an airport bid claims that Stein allegedly shook them down for a donation to Mayor Poopy's anti-Valley independence campaign. Vendors that were considered for the contract donated nearly $150,000 to the anti-Valley fund. The firm that refused to donate was supposedly shown the door.
Stein is also the mother of Hahn staffer, Jennifer Stein, who serves a liasion to both the Valley and the Jewish community for the Mayor. All in all, one heck of a connected family.
So the question on the table is - if Mrs. Stein is ready to take the sacrificial plunge for Poopy - where does she go and will she return to the BPW should the Poopster pull of the comeback play of all time and actually get re-elected?
