  1. I believe “undisclosed settlement amounts” should be illegal. That money is paid by you and me via tax. It shows the continual lack of respect the politicians in this town show their employers; the tax payer.

    • The City Attorney’s rep. said the city isn’t paying any money to settle the case, which means it’s coming out of the Councilmember’s pocket. Yes, the taxpayers pay his salary, but once we do, isn’t it his money to be spent as he needs or wants to spend it? All that is separate from his being at fault for his involvement with the staffer.

      • I appreciate your point but what about the $200K in legal fees we paid. $200K snap just like that. That pot hole on my street could have used that $.
        I know my employer wouldn’t defend me to the tune of $200K if I were being sued for harassment.

  2. San Fernando Rd. where it crosses Salem St., Glendale Blvd. and Los Feliz Blvd. are all in the city of Glendale, not Atwater Village.

    • You would think that the reporter at Los Feliz Ledger would be aware of the boundaries. The train track is a pretty distinct border and especially at Los Feliz Blvd. where San Fernando is a full two blocks into Glendale.
