In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we expose the true background of new LA-32 Neighborhood Council President Marleen Fonseca (formerly Caudillo), who's true self runs counter to the different face fronted by her to the LA-32 NC Community.
Marleen Fonseca (formerly Caudillo) from her LA-32 NC Election Bio.
Marleen Fonseca – I’m a neighbor of 40 years, and am now raising my two
teenage children here. I come with much expertise in the workings of city
government, having spent 11 years as a civilian employee / manager of the LAPD,
and currently serving as a Labor Representative for 1,341 city employees in 6
different Departments for the Engineers & Architects Association – L.A.
City’s oldest union (1894). My city experience and vast network of friends and
colleagues will be beneficial to the Neighborhood Council and residents of
90032. I graduated from All Saints Catholic School and Sacred Heart of Mary High
School; I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from UC Riverside, majoring in
Environmental Science. I am a committed neighbor, parent and homeowner who cares
about the quality-of-life in our community and will dedicate myself to the
commitment needed to continue building and empowering our beautiful neighborhood.
......., but the blunt reality in the Internet Age, is that your pass is a Google Search away, especially if you had employment issues that merited a Civil Service Hearing, under a previous last name as we disclose below---Scott Johnson.
As the now Marleen Fonseca noted, she "did work" as a Management Analysis II for LAPD, but as the October 10, 2013 Minutes from a Civil Service Termination Hearing reveals, the face that the former Mrs. Caudillo would want you to believe about her LAPD employment is bluntly different than reality.
According to the Minutes of the hearing, the former Mrs. Caudillo, now LA-32 NC President Fonseca, was terminated for allegedly, a second DUI Offense and attempting to withhold informing her superiors of the incident as highlighted above.
Despite trying to put a different face on how her supposed "Settlement Agreement" pertaining to a previous alleged DUI, should be use in her termination proceedings, the facts do not lie.
The fact was that on or about January 21, 2012, the former Mrs. Caudillo was arrested for operating a motor vehicle under the influence (for a second a last time as a LAPD employee, allegedly). In addition, she withheld information for five days from her superiors. Considering that she had already signed a "Settlement Agreement" pertaining to a previous offense, her chances of maintaining employment were slim and none, as stated by the Chief in the summery below.
As noted in previous Mayor Sam Posts, the former Mrs. Caudillo of Alhambra, now LA-32 NC President Fonseca has ties to Empower LA Employees via her new Union Job. Its been easy to notice that Empower LA has been very accommodating to the new LA-32 NC President (considering its EAA that is backing the grievances of most Empower LA NEAs), especially when it comes to its continuing stonewalling in allowing the filling of growing vacancies of the new board. In lieu of the documentation above, it will be of interest how Empower LA General Manager Grayce Liu responds to growing community concerns, especially if more nefarious information is made public on the former Mrs. Alhambra-residing Caudillo,
turned LA-32 NC President Ms. Fonseca.
