This week on PBS SoCaL, we delve into Garden Grove’s placement of more than a half-dozen relatives of top city officials into city jobs.
For example, three sons of City Manager Matthew Fertal as well as his niece work at the city making salaries between $27,000 for a paid internship to just over $62,000 for an administrative aid position.
We also discuss:
- Santa Ana residents seemingly taking back their City Hall after years of a continued disconnect between neighborhoods and city leaders.
- County Supervisor Todd Spitzer tells activists that he’s still not sure whether to press his colleagues to keep fighting them in court over a controversial housing project in Trabuco Canyon.
Voice of OC’s weekly news segments are broadcast on PBS SoCaL Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 p.m.
