Peter Grenell's Retirement Memo


Why is a bank located at the Harbor District headquarters?

On June 24, 2014, I received an email with a link to a bank website. When I visited the site I noticed that the address of the bank matched the address at the Harbor District administrative office in South San Francisco. It's peculiar that Peter Grenell, Harbor District General Manager is the President and Chairman of a bank/authority operating from the Harbor District's office space.

Half Moon Bay Review editorial by Clay Lambert, July 2, 2014

Back when he was an active fisherman, Pietro Parravano requested dissolution of the Harbor District

In 1992, Pietro Parravano, President of the Half Moon Bay Fisherman's Marketing Association, mailed a letter to LAFCo requesting dissolution of the San Mateo County Harbor District.

In 1998 SMC Harbor Commissioner Don Shearer, who served with Pietro Parravano as Vice President of the HMB Fisherman's Marketing Association, pleaded guilty for embezzlement.  It was reported in the San Francisco Chronicle that President Parravano gave Don Shearer the stack of blank checks Shearer used for embezzling money from the HMB Fisherman's Marketing Association and the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen's Associations.

In 2012 Pietro Parravano's attempt at grant fraud from Bay Area Air Quality Management District was reported in the Half Moon Bay Review. A whistle-blower triggered an investigation by the Air Quality District and the $83,000. Carl Moyer Air Quality Grant from the state was rescinded.
