Once again the Leader evades the question:
Burbank Hospitality Assn. violated Brown Act, D.A.’s office says
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office determined last week that the Burbank Hospitality Assn. violated the Brown Act back in September when the organization decided to donate money to the Committee for Yes on Measure B without properly placing the request on its agenda.
According to a letter written by Bjorn Dodd, deputy district attorney, dated May 30, which was sent to Burbank resident David Spell, the district attorney’s office agreed with one of Spell’s complaints, which alleged the Burbank Hospitality Assn., commonly known as Visit Burbank, had inappropriately discussed and given $50,000 to the Committee of Yes on Measure B without placing the issue on the agenda.
The BHA is a city taxing authority under the direct guidance and control of city staff. The city attorney’s office had also been brought in to sign off on this “contribution” beforehand, which they did.
What was that you said a few months ago Mayor Rogers, that these guys aren’t “attorneys” who you’re tired of hearing from, and that you have faith in CA Albano’s legal advice on local issues?
Yeah, fuck you too.
