Pending Case Rulon v City of Montebello

Anyone else think that if hard ass kick butt Ken Rulon had been retained as Chief instead of being sumarily terminated the malcreants in the Wilsey/ Dragoo case would have been via con dias a couple of years ago?

Big mistake letting Naramore and Rulon go before they had a chance to clean house.

Keep up the good work Chief McClure
There is still work to be done

BTW. Narramore, who tried to hire Rulon, was close friends with Rulon. Narramore also promoted DRagoo and Rojas. Hmmmmmm

All the Hmmmm needs to be told to the City council today
The way I heard it MPD brass got the knives out on outsiders Rulon and Narramore,
they wanted an inside guy.
One of the boys
Business as usual
and payback time for Weast's flunkies.
(some are flunkies for whoever is in charge-
they are called survivors)
(bend over survivors- no spine)
All the inside guys wanted to be Chief.
City ends up with a nice guy from LAPD and two "wannabe chief" captains get put on leave anyway
City gets sued anyway.
Rulon was hired under the provisions of the MMC which task the City Acministrator with making such decisions and give him the authority.
If council wishes to micro-manage the City and hover over their CA they need to change the MMC first.
They did not
Rulon has a Case and was professionaly embaressed by the hasty and ill-considered actions of the Council.

Does the MMC allow the CM to enter into contracts above $50,000, such as the one Rulon is suing to collect on?

Trash has gone for the weekend.

Excellent question

There was a salary scheduel in place
IMHO the CM could hire within that approved schedule.
Was Rulon's salary within the schedule?
Somethings that will run up the lawyer bills, no doubt.
Brown Act requires that salaries for non represented employees be discussed and approved only in an open session.
Recall that Pacheco's salary was approved in a "gang of three" closed session and COPP obtained a writ that the salary was illegal and could obtain an injunction if the City attempted to pay based on that contract.
(Why Pacheco continues to sue the City (and appeal)is beyond me)

Is the salary the issuein this suit? Or, the severance package which provided for a year's pay upon termination without cause?

You're correct about salary, but is the CM permitted by the MMC to contract a six figure severance package without council authorization?

Another excellent question
What did previous Chief's contracts have in the way of severence?
Dan Weast?
Even if there was a salary schedule would the salary have to be approved in an open session under the Brown Act?
Or was the approval of the schedule sufficient?
Going to be interesting.
slick!

ChaUCG ... I could agree with you more! In regards to the homeless, many of them may be victims of government retaliation. They may have been targeted and harassed to their demise. I believe MPD has something to do with me being mobbed or participating in it.
