What’s left when you take away the lies on water board Director Xavier Alvarez’s bio?
Just his phone number, which is disconnected.
Alvarez is the director for Three Valleys Municipal Water District who was convicted for lying about having received the Medal of Honor.
Will Bigham reports Rees Lloyd, a member of the American Legion, protested Alvarez’s claim in his biography that he is a Legion member, and requested that the information be removed from the director’s bio. Here’s what Bigham reports:
When Three Valleys board president Bob Kuhn was notified of Lloyd’s letter Monday, he told district staff members to remove anything in Alvarez’s biography that the district did not know to be true.
Alvarez’s entire biography – except a listing for a now-disconnected phone number – was removed Monday.
“We know for a fact that he didn’t go to school,” Kuhn said Monday. “He started (the biography) with the fact that he was a graduate of Cal Poly Pomona. That by itself was enough to take the whole thing down.
“As a matter of fact, this was the easiest decision I’ve ever made,” Kuhn continued. “I had a tougher time deciding what to eat for breakfast this morning.”
