|Let there be taxes!|
Ms. Aguilar is expected to walk away with a handsome six figure pension and platinum health benefits for the rest of her life. On your dime, of course. And what exactly is it that you got in exchange for this extraordinary act of generosity?
As far as I can tell, not all that much. The highest utility taxes in California, an inept and broken Police Department that cannot even find teenagers willing to work for it, and tens of millions of dollars in debt to both CalPERS and those banks in New York holding the paper on around $22 million dollars in Sierra Madre water bond debt. The majority of that being paid for in interest only payments, of course.
There is supposed to be a press release floating around somewhere about Elaine's December departure, but I have yet to see it. Maybe they're holding off on that item so the Mountain Views News can break this story. A day late, I guess.
Expect the Doyle-Stockley-Buchanan Axis to start beating their bongo drums soon for Michelle Keith to groove on over from Bradbury and take the gig. They desperately need someone who will keep their secrets.
According to Transparent California (link), Bradbury City Manager Michelle Keith enjoys $142K in yearly compensation. Elaine Aguilar's yearly compensation varies, but last year it was in the $215K range.
More news as it arrives.
