Before he accepted his $25,000 pay raise, I thought he
was great.

Now that he has taken the money, he is not worth a dime.

City Manager Rene Bobadilla Must Go!
How much did the,people of El Monte have to take in vain before the citizens of Huntingpark open their eyes?!

Rene Bobadilla was "appointed" the City Manager back in 2010. I'd like to know the names of each of the people who participated in this decision and the Huntington Park council members who clearly didn't do their research on this guy!

Rene Bobadilla DOES NOT act in the interests of the community. He fires honest and hardworking employees so that he can replace them with hie friends. he just did it in HP and hired his Finance Director crony from El Monte and that city is in the worst financial crisis ever. Grreat job HP. claims that he was given the job after the former City Manager was arrested in a prostitution sting.
First of all Bobadilla's friend gave himself a huge raise. This is according to the newspapers.

Now, Rene Bobadilla is being accused of providing prostitutes to developers. This is according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. There is a story that seems to state that he was tied in with Captain Santos Hernandez who is being also investigated by the FBI, for allegedly using his police authority to investigate political candidates that could challenge the status quo in El Monte.
This guy, and those who put him into office need to go!

This man had one mission in El Monte and that was to try and break the unions, get rid of good employees who did not agree with his policies, and hire close friends who would fellow him without questions. Over his term from Public Works Superintendent to City Manager what did he accomplish? NOTHING. Used city employees on city time to help his friends (Baseball Buddies) get contracts with the city. He thinks by leaving El Monte that everything he did wrong will go away and no one will investigate or follow him to Huntington Park. And if you get a chance look at the Council agendas for Huntington Park, hes already setting up a job for his girlfriend who still works in El Monte as a Supervisor in the HR Department. Good luck HP.

Rene brought in his cronnies TKE Engineering. Did City of El Monte ever investigates this? TKE charging big money to El Monte. All TKE Engineering's bids were approved without comparing to others.
City of El Monte needs to do some investigations.
