In his candidate statement for Placer County Supervisor, Victor Bekhet says he will “stand against assaults on current zoning via loopholes”. What he doesn’t tell you is that having moved to Granite Bay from the Bay Area just three years ago, one of the first things Victor did was use one of those “loopholes” to get a variance from the Granite Bay Community Plan so that he could split his property and build another house that he couldn’t have under the Community Plan as written.
Having gotten his “loophole” to split his lot, did Victor go on the straight and narrow, obey all building requirements and pay all his fees like a good law abiding citizen? Heck no! The guy who wants to be your Supervisor by claiming he will make people follow the rules… didn’t. Here is the picture of Victor’s lot just before the split. Here is the picture just a couple months after. Note the presence of two new dwelling units added to the lots, BOTH WITHOUT OBTAINING PERMITS OR PAYING ANY FEES. Here is the most recent picture. Though one of the illegal dwelling units was removed, the other remains to this day… STILL with NO PERMITS and having paid NO FEES!
So is Victor a developer, a hypocrite or both?
Victor lists himself as a “Small Business Owner” as his ballot title. But what is his “small business”? Well, on his public social media profile he lists himself as the President of Shenouda Capital Management, a San Mateo company. In fact, the website for the Bay Area company does list Victor as its only employee.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much more to be learned about Victor’s success as a financial advisor, since a check with the Secretary of State shows that his LLC has been suspended, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority shows that he is not registered as a financial advisor (and hasn’t been for almost four years), and his company profile shows that he has no clients and no assets under management.
So, if a suspended financial company with no employees and no clients isn’t Victor’s business, why is Victor running for office putting himself out as a financial advisor? Perhaps he was concerned that “Laundromat owner” wasn’t a strong enough ballot title, especially given some of the Yelp reviews…
Don't let this slow motion train wreck wipe out Placer County!
