A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, Greenwood & Streicher LLC
Citizens of Albuquerque, how does it feel to be greased? Scott Greenwood and Tom Streicher, the two out of state people (Greenwood & Streicher LLC) Berry hired to represent you with the Department of Justice have been “working” for nine months and the tab is going to be $500,000 plus expenses! Expenses like first class travel, booze, hotel room for their dog, travel time from Scottsdale, steak dinners at the end of their driving day, etc. The Eye does not see anything in the consent decree that required this type of “outside” consulting. Tourek and Berry should be ashamed of themselves for being lazy, incompetent and poor stewards of our money. Imagine if these were transit employees enjoying lunch at the Library while on the job?!? We only hope that the city council puts an end to the Greenwood & Streicher LLC grease job.
This picture might help the City Council end the Greenwood & Streicher LLC contract. Remember when Scott Greenwood denied that he and Streicher accepted any pay from Taser International, when he appeared before the city council earlier this year. Several councilors stated that if this was shown to be a lie they would move to end the Greenwood & Streicher LLC contract with Albuquerque. Even though Taser has attempted to remove all traces of their connections with Greenwood & Streicher LLC your Eye found this from March 3, 2014:
Tom Streicher is making a presentation for Taser on March 3 2014, weeks before Scott Greenwood tells the Albuquerque City Council that Greenwood & Streicher never have received pay from Taser. I guess they do it for free, sic. Notice the picture says “GREENWOOD & STREICHER LLC” TASER TECH SUMMIT. Notice the audience members have TASER around their necks, kind of like the citizens of Albuquerque and the Taser contract that is around their neck. The Eye wonders if Taser paid any expenses for Greenwood & Streicher LLC, or is that something only the citizens of Albuquerque are charged for?
Will the city council bring Scott Greenwood and Tom Streicher back before them and ask them to explain this picture? If Greenwood & Streicher LLC are doing work for Taser for free, how about extending the same “free” contract to the citizens of Albuquerque for their consent decree work? Greenwood & Streicher LLC may claim that Taser did not pay them directly, but how about if they paid a third party who then paid Greenwood & Streicher LLC? Greenwood & Streicher LLC are not appearing at Taser summits for free, that is common sense. The city council needs to hold Greenwood & Streicher LLC accountable for not being truthful with them about their Taser employment. You learn this in law school, you have to disclose to your client any conflict of interest. Has Scott Greenwood forgotten this? Therefore the city council should help him remember and hold to their promise.
A picture is worth a thousand words, end the Greenwood & Streicher LLC contract now!
