Hews Media Group-Cerritos News has obtained documents via a public records request that show public relations firms using the names of Central Basin Director Leticia Vasquez and Martha Camacho-Rodriguez’ as an entry to submit $42,000 in consulting fees to CB GM Alex Rojas.
The submittals are highly questionable, and invoke memories of Ron and Ton Calderon and former disgraced CB GM Art Aguilar; the invoices submitted were not approved by the board nor are there any signed contracts.
In documents obtained by HMG-CN , the public relations firm of Dallas Fowler submitted a $21,000 invoice related to Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia’s failed bill to take over CB, AB 625.
Fowler wrote, “I’m Dallas Fowler, I was referred to you by Directors Vasquez-Wilson and Camacho-Rodriguez to submit my invoices for work performed.”
Fowler, who is a former Los Angeles Commissioner appointed by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, claimed she “worked 245 hours between the months of June-July.”
