New, 4 comments

Big headline, but little actual information on this story: On Friday, the LA Times reported that Bruce McClendon, Los Angeles County's chief land use planner, was fired by County Chief Executive Officer William Fujioka. "Fujioka said that personnel rules barred him from publicly disclosing the reason behind the termination, effective immediately. McClendon was head of the Department of Regional Planning for two years and earned $191,028 annually. He will receive severance pay for the equivalent of six months of work, Fujioka said. McClendon, reached by telephone at his downtown apartment, said that he believed the firing was likely in retaliation for becoming a whistle-blower against the Board of Supervisors." [LA Times]
