CARSON – 2UrbanGirls has confirmed City Manager Sharon Landers was been placed on administrative leave by the new council majority during a special meeting held Dec. 9.
“Yes, Landers was placed on leave, and I heard Faye Moseley was fired,” said Councilman Jawane Hilton, who declined to comment further.
Landers and Moseley, who last served as HR Director, have become embroiled in controversy in City Hall with allegations of bullying, and intimidating city employees.
Hilton took the unusual step of stepping away from his chair, during an August city council meeting, to speak out as a resident during public comment.
“I am addressing this body as a lifelong resident,” said Hilton. “I am very concerned about our city manager bullying, discriminating, and her attitude towards employees and myself. Too many employees are afraid to speak out because of their fear of retaliation. I can no longer sit to the side and this must be exposed.”
“She covers up her bullying by hiding behind powers in our city charter,” said Hilton. “Her bullying ways must stop. I am a resident and approve this message.”

Hilton also spoke against reducing the duties and salaries of the city clerk’s position.
The day after being sworn into office, Myla Rahman, abruptly resigned from the position and has offered no public comment as to what was behind her decision.
Some believe there is politicking going on behind the scenes and are curious if Rahman’s campaign was a ruse.
Mayor Pro Tem Jim Dear, Councilwoman Arlene Rojas and Councilman Jawane Hilton voted in favor of placing Landers on leave.
This week the council is expected to formally vacate the city clerk’s seat and discuss options on whether to appoint or hold [another] special election.
Well this is just the beginning of the unpeeling of the scandal in Carson City Hall.
Finally, they have end the discussions with the city manager Sharon Lander, which I believe were poorly negotiated by hear friend and neighbor City Attorney Sunny Soltani . She is the next crook that should be removed form the city of Carson.
why do we keep hiring outside influencers who only want to be made kings and queens. and take a dump on the residents. why because the residents can not even speak without getting slashed up by upper management and the mayor. everyone wants a BMW i guess
Did the news get out on the Carson superintendent from Irvine? Rumor around Parks & Rec staff today was how he displaced an account clerk / practically threw her out of her office. A proud minority woman that’s been with the city for many years. Our thoughts are on another Senior Clerk, we are watching out for you. Hang in there sister. 👊🏽He would tell anyone that would listen that he’s pro-management and they took away the power of employees. The truth is the City Management and HR had a death grip on the city and its policies that no resident would ever imagine. So with that complete power, the Carson Superintendent from Irvine went concealed and any employee with an issue would be dealt with. Can anyone stop him from having the employees work out of class? Why did the tree contractor on Thursday the 9th of December while addressing the Mayor & City Council personally mention he had previous business dealings with the Carson superintendent from Irvine? Strange isn’t it? It was very smart of the Council to reconsider the contract. Let’s be honest and crystal clear in everything we do. Also, it was nice to see the current City Manager come and speak to the accounting clerk. She deserved better than that treatment she was put through.
