The Huntington Park City Council was faced with a crisis. Its longtime provider of bus service abruptly announced it was getting out of the business two years ago, and the city had 30 days to find a new operator. Without seeking competitive bids, the city contracted with Metro Transit Services. The company hired as its general manager Mario Beltran, a political consultant who worked for a campaign committee that promoted the three new council members (including CURRENT Cedillo "Campaign Consultant" Jhonny Pineda), campaign finance records show. The deal with Metro paid the company a 46% higher rate for the same service the old bus operator provided, according to city records.
Both Beltran and Pineda have been compensated $10,000 dollars-plus for their work with Team Cedillo, along with Convicted Felon Larry "Nativo" Lopez, who has apparently created a new "Swept Off Instead LLC", that specializes in "Voter Registration".
