South El Monte council members are given monthly cell phone allowances. For example, Hector Delgado was reimbursed $168 in cell phone charges in December 2006, and for $216 in January 2007. You would think, then, that the cell phone number would be on the council members’ business cards.
Well, I’m staring at Councilman Hector Delgado’s business card, and it’s not there. Is he the only one? I don’t know. Mayor Blanca Figueroa has her cell phone number, but I don’t have the other three council member’s cards? Do you?
