City of Compton City Manager Craig Cornwell sent a “confidential” email to members of the city council that a high ranking executive was being investigated for possible “job deficiencies”.
Public Works Director Wendell Johnson has over 20 years of experience, in local government, performing engineering duties.
Johnson has been responsible for the design and implementation of street repairs. It is well known the city is not spending enough of Measure P funds, on pothole repairs, as the money is being used to pay down debt, law enforcement services and minimal upgrades to various parks.
Cornwell hopes to have the investigation completed as soon as possible.
How will Johnson’s departure effect the street repair schedule?
