I got an interesting call early this morning from Matthew Weintraub, the spokesman for El Monte.
Apparently, the city employee I talked to for this blog post and some other officials were a little “distressed” about the content of the post.
Weintraub said he didn’t want people in the community thinking the city was trying to hide anything by not putting the archived video online more promptly. It finally went up about 30 minutes after my initial call to the city clerk’s office, Weintraub said.
I guess I can’t blame their concerns about perception among residents considering everything that’s going on in that city right now.
Anyway, that’s their side and they’re sticking to it.
