Dr. Keith Richman, former California Assembly Minority Leader that wrote a letter to the Joint Legislative Audit Committee to ask for a major statewide audit in school roofing projects in 2005, has passed away this past weekend.
Here is the news report on him:
You can read about it here - and see who stopped this state from losing even many more hundreds of millions in the scam over the past 5 years.
In that effort in 2005, two letters were used from roofing industry personnel to verify the information I gave him - and which he found very credible.
One of those persons who wrote a letter (and shown in that post) was Jim Miner, now in his 80's and a roof consultant in the Sacramento area.
Jim was very instrumental in getting this second effort done June 30th, with the hearing at the Statehouse.
However, the other person who wrote a letter (also shown in that post), Steve Camblin and a former head of the Roofing Contractor's Association in California, passed away in the Fall of 2008.

Both men did much to help California as has Jim, and to all three, we owe a huge debt of gratitude.
What a loss for California!
