The La Puente City Council agenda doesn’t list a hearing regarding the city selecting a council member to fill Louie Lujan’s seat. Lujan resigned two weeks ago, a day before he pleaded guilty to perjury for lying in campaign finance forms.
Last we heard, the council tonight was scheduled to choose between five finalists. We’re told the council didn’t list the hearing because it was continued from a hearing last week, when the five candidates were chosen as finalists.
But how would anybody know about tonight’s hearing unless they were at last week’s meeting?
I admire the council for trying to move quickly, but I’m pretty sure this type of thing should have been publicized.
