Protes and Rally Stop Stalling and Obstruction of Justice Contra Costa DA Mark A Peterson

City workers of Richmond, Caliifornia from SEIU 1021 and IFPTE Local 21 and community members joined to together at the Contra Costa District Attorney's office Mark A. Peterson on June 6, 2013 in Martinez to demand the investigation and prosecution of Richmond Human Resources Director Leslie Knight. Knight had illegally run a private business at the city hall and had ordered city workers including Librarian finance manager Stacie Plumber. Stacie refused and was retaliated against by Knight. Despite this financial malfeasance and also the theft of city moneys the city manager Bill Lindsay refused to fire her and the Contra Costa District Attorney refuses to investigate and prosecute Leslie Knight.
The city public workers pointed out that if they had done the same deeds that they would have been fired and probably jailed yet there was special treatment for HR manager Knight.
