Cudahy City Hall Fires Four Top Officials

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles County city of Cudahy has fired its longtime city manager, city attorney and placed two other city employees on administrative leave.

According to a leading news source, the council voted 4-0 Monday in closed session to fire City Manager George Perez and City Attorney David Olivas. The council also placed City Clerk Larry Galvan and Human Resources Director Crystal Hernandez on administrative leave. The Times says Galvan promptly filed his retirement papers.

Cudahy Mayor Josue Barrios says Perez was fired “for cause,” but he gave no specifics.

Cudahy neighbors several suburbs southeast of Los Angeles that have experienced recent political upheaval, including the scandal-ridden city of Bell where residents voted earlier this month to replace the entire City Council.

    Perez, Olives, Hernandez, Do you see a pattern here?

    • Hard To Miss The Pattern

      Don’t leave out Galvan. He is also part of the “pattern.” We cannot say all that fit into this pattern are bad but as the old saying goes, the “numbers” don’t lie.
