‘Oh, I’m the Mayor’

There seemed to be some confusion at a Montebello City Council meeting Wednesday over the mayorship.

Newly sworn-in Mayor Rosie Vasquez repeatedly addressed former Mayor Bill Molinari as “Mr. Mayor.”

It happened so many times that City Attorney Arnold Alvarez-Glasman had to tell Vasquez to stop referring to Molinari as the mayor.

Vasquez laughed, looked at the audience and said, “oh, I’m the Mayor.”

Councilman Robert Urteaga slipped a couple times as well. He said he needs to get used to the new rotation.

    Most of Montebello wishes Molinari was still Mayor. We think that Vasquez will soon wish it too when she faces the voters over her Athens deal and misspent tax dollars.
