CCTimes article reveals one P66 tactic to gain political advantage

An article just published by Tom Lochner shows a questionable link between Phillips 66, New Horizons Career Development Center, the Rodeo Municipal Advisory Council (MAC), and Anthony Hodge.  

The chairman of the panel that advises Contra Costa County on land use and planning issues runs a nonprofit agency partially bankrolled by Phillips 66, whose Rodeo petroleum refinery has a project currently undergoing county review.


There appears to be impropriety with the filing of disclosure papers by Mr. Hodge pertaining to his income and perks gained indirectly from P66 funding.

This may be just the tip of the iceberg of questionable if not criminal funding activities by Phillips 66 to gain political advantages in Contra Costa County and the state.  We are looking forward to future articles from Tom Lochner!

I’ve found the YouTube clip mentioned in the article and have embedded it below.  It shows one level the relationships.  It’s amazing the difference a few turkeys can make.

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph. How could Pastor Hodge’s vote NOT be
    influenced by who he takes money from? The irony, of course, is that
    he’s always preaching about “what the RIGHT thing to do is…”, which,
    by the way, makes the RMAC one of the most entertaining meetings on the Bay
    (4th Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. in the Senior Center Bldg. on Parker
    Ave., Rodeo). To protect the reputation and credibility of the committee,
    however, Supervisor Glover needs to take swift action, and clean up the board.
    Review those Income Statements, and remove anyone with a conflict of interest.
    After all, there’ve been 3 resignations from the RMAC in the last 6 months.
