"How many more checks for out-going DWP General Manager H. David Nahai??"
Its all a matter of semantics, correct??
Officials at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power officials plan to give a consulting contract to the outgoing general manager of the power agency that would pay him the same salary he was earning as the DWP's top executive.
Just days after he resigned, David Nahai is slated to receive nearly $6,300 per week as a consultant to the utility.The DWP commission, whose five members are appointed by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, is scheduled to meet Tuesday to discuss the plan.
Now the comments from the "enablers" or should we call them "Villar lackeys"??
“There’s nothing nefarious about it, nothing complex about it. This is a reasonable business decision, nothing more than that,” Alpert said. “David’s resigned, and we need his institutional knowledge for the next few months.”
Nothing nefarious?? Institutional knowledge??
Let me try this in some simple venacular, "this is bulls..." I would like to see the "dollar to word ratio" for Nahai's wriiten insight on what is needed to turn around the mounting problems at the nations largest public utility, during his proposed consulting gig. I'm guessing in the range of the number of busted water mains that cause Nahai to "fall on the sword" to protect Mayor antonio Villaraigosa.
Then Alpert continues........
“He may have knowledge we want to pick his brain on,” Alpert said.
Lot of taxpayers may want knowledge on Nahai's dealings with the likes of Keith Brackpool and Ari Swiller and what role temp DWP GM S. David Freeman had in these dealings.
When it comes to this, then maybe Nahai has been "consulted" to remain quiet.
