As CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar denies the Sexual Harassment claims of former Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy. We ponder whether this latest controversy to befallen the Princeton Graduate CD 14 City Councilman will have profound consequences come 2015.
Former CD 14 Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy, victim or scorned ex staffer of interest for Councilman Huizar?
What a week to return to the local blogging cybersphere!
Further, we have over the years been the recipient of comments that alluded to speculation about inapproiate relationships between City Councilman Jose Huizar and various workplace associates, including Francine Godoy. But unless the veracity of the information checked out, they merited no further ado.
That said, the allegations in the complaint filed by the former $135,000 a year employee of Councilman Huizar, is an unexpected twist in a former work relationship deemed "Special" by a close confidant of both.
The quick promotional rise within the CD 14 Council Office Chain of Command by Godoy has provided bloggin fodder for speculation within the last few years. While former Chief of Staff Ana Cubas was face that most CD 14 observers saw in the field, Godoy was the "other woman" behind the scenes who's duties included the handling of contributions to the CD 14 Officeholder Account
. Rarely would Godoy be sighted at community events, yet she was the major power broker within the City Hall Office, leaving some to speculate that it was Godoy who help pushed Cubas out into a fail CD 9 City Council Campaign.
But while both Cubas and Godoy both fought for top woman status, there is no doubt who is the reigning queen within the CD 14 Office Culture and that would be Richelle Huizar. Some had speculated that it was the wife of the CD 14 City Councilman who engineered the transfer of Godoy to the Bureau of Sanitation. It should be noted that in the past when Godoy's name would surface on the blog in regards to alleged inappropriate interactions with the current councilman, Mrs. Huizar would make herself visible at the City Hall Office.
In recent months, sources had Mrs. Huizar engaging former Mayor Antonio Villar in one on one discussions in the efforts to find Godoy another city job with comparable pay. But that was not to be and the results ................, are to be continue.
