Money, campaigns and developers, oh my

Alison Hewitt reports today about a West Covina deal to give McIntyre Cos. an exclusive negotiating agreement for a vacant parcel at the foot of Big League Dreams Park.

But Councilman Roger Hernandez is upset. Why? The developer has ties to Councilman Mike Touhey and contributed $8,700 to candidates in the November election, Hewitt reports.
Hernandez had this to say in the meeting about the deal: it is an example of the council approving an ENA in exchange for campaign contributions.

Hey, he said it.
