Good Afternoon,

I am hoping that you can tell me out of the productions so far that you’ve provided to me where I can find the city elected officials oath of office and official bond information. As well as the city’s liability insurance information?

I’m also looking for all the acting deputy sheriffs contracted and assigned to the city of Aliso Viejo Official and Fiduciary bond information or agent.

Thank you,

Good morning Ms. Baron,

The listed documents were not part of your initial request for records; however, I have provided the responsive documents as attachments to this email. Please note that the City Council is not required to furnish a bond, therefore there are no responsive records to that portion of your request. Also, the records relating to deputy sheriffs must be requested directly from Orange County.

Ms. Baron,

From: City Clerk

Hi,

In accordance with established municipal protocols, it is imperative to expedite the production and submission of your bond as City Clerk. It is a requisite that the City Clerk's bond be duly filed with the Office of the Mayor. The current delay in the presentation of your bond raises substantial concerns. Under the prevailing municipal regulations, the absence of a properly executed and filed bond disqualifies an individual from holding the office of City Clerk. Persisting in occupying this position without the requisite bond may be construed as an unauthorized assumption of office, an act which carries serious legal implications. Immediate attention to this matter is strongly advised to ensure compliance with relevant statutory requirements and to uphold the integrity of the office.

Thank you

From: City Clerk

Hi,

It has come to my attention that a misunderstanding has arisen due to a lack of telephonic communication between us, attributed to your decision to terminate the call prematurely. As the appointed City Clerk, it is incumbent upon you to adhere to the principles and responsibilities enshrined in your oath of office, which fundamentally obligates you to serve the public interest. This role inherently positions you as a servant to the constituents you are sworn to serve, thereby establishing a relationship where the constituents are, in effect, the principals in this dynamic.

The premature termination of our call not only raises concerns regarding your commitment to these obligations but also poses a potential jeopardy to your tenure in office. It is imperative to highlight the necessity of immediate accessibility to the surety bonds, which, as per legal requirement, must be maintained on file for all city officials at all times. Failure to promptly furnish these documents upon request could potentially expose you, and by extension, the entire City Council, to significant legal repercussions.

It is critical to underscore that the operational framework of municipal governance, including the requirement for surety bonds, is grounded in the Constitution of the United States. This foundational document supersedes any state laws to the contrary, ensuring that no deviation from its mandates is permissible. The insistence on accessing these bonds is not subject to discretionary delay and must be addressed forthwith.

Any attempt to rationalize a delay or non-compliance is unacceptable and necessitates immediate scrutiny. Should there be any failure to comply with these constitutional requirements, it may be requisite to bring this matter to the attention of higher judicial authorities, including the Supreme Court, to review the practices of the City of Aliso Viejo. Such actions are necessary to ensure adherence to the constitutional directives governing the conduct and obligations of city officials at all levels.

Respectfully,
September Baron

Dear Mitzi,

I am writing to address a matter concerning the same letter I received nearly two years ago, which pertains to my public records request. I am perplexed as to why this letter was referenced in response to my recent inquiry for all city officials' oaths and bonds. My understanding is that there is no limitation on the number of public records requests I am entitled to submit. Therefore, I seek to clarify and expand my current request under the relevant public records law.

Moreover, I wish to express my concerns regarding the prolonged period it has taken to fulfill my existing request, which has now extended over a year and a half. Given this delay, I believe it is within my rights to amend my request to include additional documents, specifically the bonds of all city officials and sheriff’s. Which was not part of my original submission. In my original request #15 is where I’ve requested all city officials Oaths.

I would like to formally request that the aforementioned documents included. It is my hope that this matter can be resolved promptly and efficiently, in accordance with the law governing public records requests.

Respectfully,
September Baron

Good afternoon,

I am hereby transmitting the correspondence previously engaged with the municipal clerk for your scrutiny. As as a long-standing resident of Aliso Viejo since its foundation. I have the right to inform you that its imperative, given your tenure that you be apprised of these exchanges and the grave concerns they encapsulate, which could potentially implicate the entire City Council of Aliso Viejo.

It is essential to acknowledge the illicit conduct currently permeating our city, notably involving personnel from the local sheriff's department. I urge you to consider the gravity of my assertions with utmost seriousness, as any further disregard for my petitions may precipitate severe legal consequences for the municipality, including yourself as the Mayor. My prior attempts to communicate through voicemail and email have been met with an unsettling silence, devoid of any recognition or response. This lack of engagement does not befit the responsibilities assumed by those who have pledged to serve the public interest.

The refusal of the city council to engage with the citizenry, who provide the financial support for their positions, starkly contradicts the ethos of public service. As the Mayor and other municipal officials, you have sworn an oath to serve— a commitment I, as a citizen, have not undertaken. This oath entails a duty to the populace, a duty flagrantly breached when my attempts to exercise my constitutional rights are dismissed or ignored by city staff, including the receptionist and the city clerk.

Therefore, I demand immediate action to address these concerns, which not only merit but may necessitate judicial scrutiny at the highest level, including potential review by the Supreme Court, to assess the city's adherence to the Constitution of the United States of America.

Respectfully,
September Baron

Hi Mitzi,

I want us to both be on the same page I have requested in writing the bond information for the all sheriffs deputies under a contract with the city bond information as well as all elected officials bond information.

In your response email you related to me that The city is not holding any of the bonds for the contracted sheriffs, and or you aren’t in possession of them. You’ve also stated that the city officials don’t have to furnish their bond upon an individuals request.

Is this correct as far as my understanding in your response, email?

I appreciate your clarification.

Respectfully,

September Baron

Good morning Ms. Baron,

The listed documents were not part of your initial request for records; however, I have provided the responsive documents as attachments to this email. Please note that the City Council is not required to furnish a bond, therefore there are no responsive records to that portion of your request. Also, the records relating to deputy sheriffs must be requested directly from Orange County.

Regards,

Mitzi Ortiz | Director of Government Services"

Good evening,

California Government Code Section 1463 allows the boding requirement to be satisfied by either a public official bond or a government crime insurance policy. The City of Aliso Viejo is a member of the California Joint Powers Insurance Authority and participates in its Crime Insurance Program, which satisfies the bonding requirement. The program summary is attached.
Regards,

Mitzi Ortiz | Director of Government Services
