Tack on another $3.1 million dating back to 2000. More of our money out the window. To add insult to injury for Long Beach residents, the official response submitted on behalf of the City was drafted by an attorney hired by a subject of the investigation, all while other individuals in City Hall were complicit in allowing that response to be submitted. That is simply not in the interests of the tax paying residents. Thank you to Council Members Mandel and Bendo for their continued efforts on our behalf because the one and only official City response should have been drafted solely with the interests of the city in mind, not the conflicted personal interests of any individual. Unfortunately, the tax payers lost again.
