Candidate Assails SCV Mayor's Ethics: Is There a Tie to Las Lomas?
From today's San Fernando Valley Business Journal
Activist Asks For Mayoral Investigation
A Santa Clarita Valley watchdog seeks an independent investigation into alleged financial improprieties of Santa Clarita Mayor Robert C. Kellar.
At a city council meeting Feb. 26, Bruce McFarland presented public documents produced between the years of 2002 and 2005 that he believes suggest that Kellar broke financial disclosure laws.
McFarland is organizer of the Santa Clarita Valley Ethics Alliance.
McFarland also told the council that Kellar did not disclose income from the 2005 sale of property along Sierra Highway that was purchased by College of the Canyons.
Thus far, the city council has decided not to investigate McFarland’s allegations.
Mayor Sam snoops have started to investigate campaign contributions to City Council members in order to determine if donations from developers have influenced their respective positions on the controversial and likely doomed Las Lomas development.
Unfortunately, it appears that transparency is not taken as seriously by the City of Santa Clarita as it is by the City of Los Angeles where its very easy to pull up campaign data online.
