- Who killed Tommy Walker, a devout Mormon who was to organize a major part of the celebration and who then discovered the corruption in the Bridge District Committee.
- Who is Patricia Novick and what is the exact accounting of her pre-contract meetings as the contractor AND the girlfriend of the Bridge Director?
- TOXIC LEAD is being used on the bridge and it is poisoning tourists, neighbors and bridge workers. Touch the bridge or breath while you are on it and you could die or be sickened for life: see: http://www.goldengatewaste.org
- Bridge Directors for over a decade have gotten kickbacks from paint suppliers for paint used on the bridge. James and John, the former directors, know what we mean
- The Bridge Directors and all of the Presidio Events marketing staff were informed of all of the facts on this site BEFORE they started marketing to sponsors for money yet they hid these facts from sponsors in their marketing. That is fraud.
- Why were no key celebration contracts put through the bid process and only rewarded to friends of the Directors?
- Which same persons were involved in both the 50th & 75th events and have the same kickback and favors deals?
- Why was the former Bridge Director told to permanently remove himself from politics forever? Hear reporters reviews of his recovered police reporter for child abuse.
- Which Bridge Director was under police investigation because of a police complaint filed by his own daughter?
- Which Bridge Director bribed almost every member of the Board of Supervisors on behalf of his real estate monopoly?
- How could a Bridge District that can’t even afford to run it’s ferry’s (according to NBC News) afford to engage in ANY party extravaganzas?
- Bridge says that their plans for an insurance disaster are to ” Keep their fingers crossed”!!!!
- Which Bridge Director used taxpayer money to buy a car?
- The Bridge never pays its bills and has had millions in debts.
- Why did CALTRANS say that it did not want the Golden Gate Bridge DIstrict involved with it?
- Why wasn’t the law followed, which required that the Bridge District be dissolved?
- Gene Pratt and Marin Advocates Association said the Bridge District was operating as an illegal private government. Are they? To whose benefit?
- The attached chart of currently contracted celebration suppliers and their business associates shows a highly suspicious set of connections. What do you think?
- The mansion on the point near China Beach, behind Robin William’s old house, in the SeaCliff District of San Francisco has it’s entire foundation built out of stolen Golden Gate Bridge Steel. It is even painted with bridge orange paint. Which Bridge District Director slipped the owner that stash?
- How many senior Bridge District staff got permit and tax favors in the SeaCliff District of San Francisco? Why?
- In the Book “Paying the toll: local power, regional politics, and the Golden Gate Bridge” By Louise Nelson Dyble, we see that the Golden Gate Bridge District was built on corruption and maintains its process as a citadel of corruption with “charges of extravagance, no-bid contracts and inside deals” that began in 1938 and have increased yearly up to 2012.

How “Special Projects” work, step by step instructions:
#1. Make-up a “special project” (ie: New paint, big party, “art” project, Staff “reduction technology”, etc.)
#2. Hire your friends to put it on.
#3. Pay your friends three times more than it actually costs.
#4. Wait for the project to end or fail; it doesn’t matter, either way, because your friends already have the cash. Who cares if it blows up.
#5. Have dinner with your friends you gave the contracts to. Watch as they slide a manila envelope with the “extra cash” to you under the table or wire it to your law firm to put into your campaign fund.
#6. Buy girlies, gin, condo’s and campaigns.
#7. Make up another “special project”…
