CALEXICO — Was the bickering during Tuesday's Heffernan Memorial Hospital District meeting the sort of behavior by the board that led Henry Legaspi to walk away from his job as its administrative assistant?
"Well, obviously," he said this morning.
Legaspi, a former hospital district board member and Calexico city manager, declined to make any further comment concerning the board he worked with for a dollar a year.
He stepped down from his post earlier this month after a year and a half on the job.
The district's attorney, Eduardo Rivera, said today he will not step down but was disappointed with the actions of the board Tuesday, specifically those of trustees David Ouzan, Mark Perrone and Ray Falcon.
"Robert Swerdling has completed almost all of the work required to sell the new bonds and now the board wants to try and negotiate his fees?" Rivera asked. "I think that is unfair."
