Monrovia City Manager Criticizes Assembly Speaker

In his weekly update, Monrovia City Manager Scott Ochoa mocks state Assembly Speaker Perez' description of his support for the elimination of redevelopment. Ochoa said Perez said, "You have to end it before you can mend it."

Ochoa isn't buying it:

"Right. Decades of law and legal precedent, investment, improvement, and public interest proposed to be erased in as many days, and we are to believe that this is about creating a better mousetrap? Not likely. This is about money. If this were about public policy, the State would - or at least should - involve many stakeholders and perspectives. Instead, Speaker Perez and the other members of the so-called Big 5 are holed up trying to figure out an $86 billion structurally imbalanced budget."
