There are plenty of cities in CA that are in hot water. Stockton, followed closely by Mammoth Lakes are in bankruptcy.
The City of Fullerton, CA, a City in Orange County, is unique in that they just ran a recall of three sitting Councilmen who have been on the City Council for many years. Travis Kiger and a crop of supporters and two other new council members, ran to address the issue of a corrupt and abusive culture within their police department, and against the tacit approval shown this same corrupt department in the face of a brutal murder and then cover up which was denied to be a cover up.
But it wasn’t just the murder of Kelly Thomas that drove the three new council members into office. A lavish and crony capitalist Redevelopment Agency, a bloated City Government budget, and more all fueled the fire in the hearts and minds of the voters. We’ll talk with Travis Kiger on their new roles, their promises, challenges, and first orders of business. Next Tuesday on Gadfly Radio
