Paying City Employees, to Play in a Campaign
But because of the mayoral election overtime was all of sudden forced to get the work done sooner, and according to Beth Barrett's report the overtime was being forced long before the rains ever came.
"We've been here seven days a week," said one worker, who asked not to be identified out of fear of losing his job. "It's for the wrong purpose: the election."
How does one defend this? If it wasn't the rains? Was it the City Council meeting in May? City Councilman Tony Cardenas wasn't concerned about the meeting -- was Hahn?
How convenient -- a building that was slated to be open in June - was pushed up using taxpayer dollars so Hahn can have his photo-op.
More taxpayer dollars spent on PR photo-ops.
