General Managers claim abuse
from Commissioner Sabrina Brennan.
"The former acting general manager of the San Mateo County Harbor District has filed a detailed claim against the district outlining what he says were years of abuse from Harbor Commissioner Sabrina Brennan.   ....  Scott Grindy worked for the Harbor District for three years between 2012 and 2015. He was hired as harbormaster and charged with many of the day-to-day management functions of district operations, including those at Pillar Point Harbor. He claims that he was led to believe he would take the general manager position in the future. When General Manager Peter Grenell retired in 2014, Grindy was promoted to “acting general manager.” Not long after, he reportedly asked to be reinstated to his old position, a move he maintains in his April 8 claim against the district was motivated by ongoing abuse.

....  In a statement issued on Friday, Brennan writes that the tort claims filed by both Galarza and Grindy are 'unsubstantiated'. She writes that the most recent claim followed a letter from Grindy’s attorney requesting a severance package in exchange for a release of all claims. The district declined to make such a payment, she writes.

....  Reached on Friday, attorney Martin Horowitz declined to specify what Grindy might ultimately seek in compensation. He said Grindy was not seeking re-instatement in his former position. Grindy is currently a harbor manager for the city and county of San Francisco."   Read more.
