Bart Mendoza 5 a.m., Dec. 8
On the heels of a Art Madrid rehearsed temper tantrum directed at Council Member Ernie Ewin and described by one La Mesa city hall insider as "rude, boorish and offensive" the City Council, ignoring the Mayors request to close the meeting so he could go home and sulk, instead voted to carry on and conduct the business they were elected to do. In this case they voted to strengthen their AB1234 Expense and Travel reporting policy to include written event specific information 30 days in advance via a revised La Mesa AB1234 Policy 12 Feb 2013 Form. This will better insure that each elected official has accountability in all such expenses of taxpayer monies. "Thumbs up" to the La Mesa City Council.
