The city should just outsource to Whittier and call it a day. City Hall officials are crooks with back door deals.

Here we go again.

"Le plus ce change, le plus ce meme chose."

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

Is this guy a joke or what?

How powerful are these police unions anyway?

Didn't we just have a similar shake-up here?

Sad to say Montebello, we are literally scraping the bottom of the Police Chief Barrel.

Since Montebello seems to be taking all of our bad apples, maybe we can send them Nickelodeon too? I know a lot of residents who will pitch in to help facilitate the move.

Might as well get Kathy Salazar for Police Chief with that history.

Why would Montebello want an individual that is already involved in legal matters in another city? Who vetted this person?

What a crock of Molinari this is.

Why is it that everyone knew Rulon was going to be the new police chief in February when Narramore introduced him to Molinari.

The rumor that Rulon was Narramore's friend and was going to be made chief was all over town for months.

This "selection process" that Narramore created is a scam. How does Narramore's friend from Huntington Park, who Molinari signs off on, miraculously becomes the top pick.

Oh, don't forget that Narramore makes all the job appointments, not the council.

Just another back room deal by Molinari who is responsible for Narramore coming into Montebello too.

Recall Molinari and end his reign of terror.

Maybe the professional recruiter that was hired did not have internet access.

The same BS is happening with the Fire Chief. Montebello has only had 7 Fire Chiefs in 8 years. 3-4 in the two times Narramore had been Interim City Manager. Talk about failed leadership Randy and Bill are systematically destroying the City.

Haters. The best way to describe all of you. Give this person a chance. I guarantee Rulon will turn the police department around and make the citizens of Montebello happy with their police department. I have had the priveledge of working in law enforcement for years. I went on a ride along in your city and the cops are LAZY. This new chief will change all of that!!!!!

Tonight's vote: Molinari, Barajas, Gomez = Yes. Perez, Cortez = No.
There is no way this went forward without Molinari approving it. I wasn't the biggest Weast supporter but for Weast to be thrown out for Narramore's buddy is a corruption of the political process in Montebello.

PREDICTION He will have a huge severance package paying thousands of dollars in his contract. He will be fired or resign and get a huge check this is a pattern.
