Cory Lidle statue

All of the money in West Covina’s art fund went to a statue of Cory Lidle.

So far the fund has brought in $131,424.93 from six developers, according to McIssac. All of that money was spent on the statue of big-league pitcher Cory Lidle, a South Hills High School alumnus, who died in a small-plane crash in October 2006. The statue was installed at the city’s Big League Dreams project in October 2007.

That project, along with a $12,000 consultant fee, has left the city was a $11,600 deficit in the art fund, said McIssac. The balance has been made up by loans from the general fund.
