LA Times article fails to credit Compton resident in article

comptonRecently the LA Times made headlines with a series of articles on Compton councilman Isaac Galvan, not giving credit that a former aide to City of LA councilman Bernard Parks and former congresswoman Laura Richardson, was the initial person to file a complaint with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Public Integrity Office questioning Galvan’s finances and dealings with Angel Gonzalez.

Isaac Galvan has been accused of hiring Angel Gonzalez to a cushy liaison position after Gonzalez worked as Galvan’s campaign manager.  Campaign materials attacking the candidates surfaced throughout Compton during the election, leading many residents to wonder who was behind the slanderous mailers.  It became a little clearer once Galvan hired Gonzalez.  Gonzalez has a bad reputation based on some shady dealings when running previous candidates for the Water board.

Demirea Perry is a native of Compton who previously ran for trustee of Long Beach City College. What’s interesting is Betty Pleasant, a trusted news source from the Wave Newspaper, has called for many investigations into elected officials which fall by the wayside, and Mr. Perry filed a complaint on July 28th, that the LA Times reported on the same day, then Gonzalez is fired in less than a week?

Read the original filing by clicking here  where he also includes that the District Attorney’s office is also investigating Central Basin Municipal Water District in particular Director Leticia Vasquez.
