Matrix Consulting: Enemy of Outsourced & Overpaid Officers Such as Public Works Engineer Allan Rigg (now in Stanton, CA), Stacey Kinsella (Negligent Employee – Redondo will rue the day that the city hired her) and Michael Ross (finally gone from PVE as of July 8, 2015)

Interest is rising in understanding the Matrix Consulting Group study to which several references have been made on this site. As it relates to Palos Verdes Estates and Tony Dahlerbruch, the Matrix study done for PVE reportedly gave Dahlerbruch the avenue through which he reportedly was able to force out engineer Allan Rigg (Director, Public Works, Planning and Building Depts.), without seeming to have conducted this power play. This appears to have been accomplished by Dahlerbruch while acting in concert with Rusty Reed, Charles Abbott Associates CEO, who conveniently sent Dahlerbruch a letter on August 20, 2013 that claimed “with the improvement of the economy, Charles Abbott Associates’s need for Allan to be more involved with corporate clients has never been greater.” Fascinating it is that only a few months after Reed’s falsely portrayed yearning to satisfy CAA’s exploding need for Allan Rigg, Allan Rigg has been handed his walking papers from Charles Abbott. Any clearheaded observer would conclude that Reed’s letter was a ruse devised with Tony Dahlerbruch for the latter to banish Allan Rigg to Stanton, CA as interim Public Works engineer without having to fire him explicitly. All that being said, the ridding the City of any purportedly disingenuous and untrustworthy employee is a big win for the City, in addition to Dahlerbruch himself. Engineer Allan Rigg now finds himself with a nice long commute after being exiled to the City of Stanton, where he is Public Works Director.
Sheri Repp-Loadsman a PVE Disaster: After she was forced out of her job in Carson in 2014, Sheri Repp-Loadsman now disgraces her position and title here in PVE alongside Ellisa Hall. Both show almost no willingness to enforce PVEMC via citation. Repp-Loadsman has behaved so repulsively toward various PVE residents to have earned the nickman, “Sheri Repp-Loathsome“.

While some commentary on this site’s posts indicate Mr. Rigg’s departure may be a net positive for the City (integrity issues seem to be the problem), the same Matrix study may have been used to bring in-house, and away from Charles Abbott Associates, other employee positions, such as that of now terminated Michael Ross in the Building & Safety department. Michael Ross’s negligent or corrupt 12/2009 approval of a PVEMC violating building structure forced a law abiding, once-soundly sleeping PVE resident to awaken in the middle of the night (1 – 4 a.m.) over the course of many months to video/audio record a secondary PVEMC violation that resulted directly from Mike Ross’s misconduct. Mike Ross not doing his job properly by ensuring that the building plan was in compliance with the 2007 PVEMC section being violated has a high probability of being merely one of many acts of misconducts over his career in PVE. Fortunately, Mike Ross is now gone.
The departure of Michael Ross, right behind Allan Rigg, finally became a reality on July 8, 2015. One no longer has to question whether Mr. Ross had to his discredit any serious incidence of violating the Palos Verdes Estates Municipal Code — an incidence that put the City at significant financial and legal risk. With the answer in the affirmative, Mr. Ross and Stacey Kinsella (who Mike Ross claimed worked with him on the corrupt approval in violation of the PVEMC) are now history from Palos Verdes Estates. Stacey Kinsella’s negligence working with Michael Ross on at least one major planning project resulted a major breach of the PVEMC. Having either Stacey Kinsella (Redondo Beach) or Mike Ross work for your company or city is fraught with risk. Corruption & Negligence of Tony Dahlerbruch (click hyperlink) The Matrix Consulting Group recommendations to RPV in March of 2013 were very telling, especially regarding the city attorney position. I recommend clicking the hyperlink and reading the following High priority recommendation on Page 3 near the bottom: “The City should consider establishing a staff City Attorney position to handle routine legal matters of the City. It is estimated this could save the City approximately $34,000 annually plus improve access and responsiveness to legal advice for City staff.” If that change could save RPV $34,000, imagine the savings for litigation prone Palos Verdes Estates. More Matrix information to come. Stay tuned.
