Darius Anderson, held a fireside chat last night to explain benefits of his recently proposed hotel.  The local developer is a principal of the proposed 59 room hotel to be constructed on the Lynch-Index Tribune campus.  The chat was held at the Saunders Drive home of supporters Michele and Frank Sampson. Sampson is the founder of Senior Care Authority a Sonoma based company and previously was a veteran of the travel industry.

The meeting was scheduled for 2 hours and included wine and hor d'oeuvers.

If Darius meets with 5 people (as in the photo) per week he might convert another 80 people in the next 16 weeks leading up to the election, and add to his 150 or so base from the Chamber of Commerce, Tourists, Vintners and Growers, and hotel group. Doesn't seem to be an effective method to get the votes he will need.

Was his indictment and settlement to New York for corruption, or the lending New Mexico kickback case mentioned at the fireside chat? How about my favorite Cows Not Casinos? Anything about how he wants to displace innocent residents of Sonoma Development Center so he can profit from developing the campus? Any of his intentions with KSVY radio 93.1FM or the Sonoma Sun? Does he only talk about the great and wonderful hotel? What will it mean to Sonoma to have more of Darius's influence around town because in reality, his character and the way he does businesss (Pay to Play) also impact the small town feeling of Sonoma. Is that the kind of character we want to associate with in Sonoma?

@M- Careful now. Don't forget the current case sitting with the Supreme Court of New Mexico. Had their laws not had a limit on statute time as in NY he would have paid another big fine to escape further prosecution, IMO. The NM Supremes took the 2 similar pay-to-play cases and stopped other non-defendants from settling. While not dispositive for him, IMO, when non-defendants are coming forward to settle in the last couple of months it is noteworthy. The State and plaintiff may get nothing or it may be a much larger settlement than defendants counted on. I wonder what antiperspirant is his brand to be working on Sacto, Cuba, Sonoma, RP Casnio, Hotel, SDC (rumored). Seems a manic pace.

So people are coming out of the woodwork, not even named as defendants to offer settlements in New Mexico, and the Judge halts the pleas until he finishes with this sister case? He must REALLY think there were some shenanigans going on there with kickbacks and corruption? This could really cost Darius Anderson, his brother Kirk, and Gold Bridge Capital, LLC. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- http://law.justia.com/cases/new-mexico/court-of-appeals/2012/31-421.html

The bottom of this article evidences the current status. Everything is on hold UNTIL the NM SC makes their decision. http://www.thestate.com/2013/07/15/2863511/settlement-reached-in-nm-pay-to.html

Who was invited to this Chat?
Ralph Hutchinson July 29, 2013 at 12:42 AM
It was advertised that we know of, on the Facebook page with an RSVP so it appeared to be an open invitation. We did not get an invitation or attendance list. Other than Darius in the picture facing the camera we could not identify the others in the photo.
