Ignore the boondoggle behind the curtain. . . .

To keep people's minds off the $800,000 in community redevelopment funds they just blew on a new track for Rosemead High School, and the liberties they are taking (pun intended) with property rights regarding Chinese American Live Poultry, Maggie and her friends have trotted out the unemployment claim issue. This time, they've dragged former city manager Oliver Chi back into the mud.

Unfortunately, this only reminds people of the $350,000 they wasted to fire Chi without cause last year.

And these are the guys who claim to be fiscally responsible? Look up "chutzpah" in the dictionary, and I'll bet there's a picture of Maggie Clark staring back at you.
