On March 6, Mayor Javier Alatorre showed again he couldn't be an impartial party when it comes to making a decision regarding the Calexico Housing Authority.
Not only was Mr. Alatorre the lone dissenting vote in a 4-1 decision to have a public hearing to discuss the future of the Board of Commissioners for the Housing Authority, but also Mr. Alatorre came out publicly again stating that there has been no proof of negligence by the board members.
Mr. Alatorre, how can you say there is nothing wrong at the Calexico Housing Authority when you personally as well as other city councilmen and city staff were present when you had a telephone conversation with Mr. Bob Cook, executive director of Los Angeles Housing and Urban Development? We ask you how can you say the Board of Commissioners has not been negligent as to the decisions taken for the past months? As we have stated to you in previous meetings, the 5-H program is only one of the many neglected programs in which the authority has failed to follow procedure.
