This was outrageous. It should warn citizens to watch their local government, closely.
This city of 35000 had a city manager arranging to pay himself $ 3/4 million+, and all it required were a few complicit operative like this convicted accomplice, and city council members getting around $100,000 pa.
The city is mainly Hispanic, and lower middle class and below.
City government books and records SHOULD be reviewed and audited, to determine that frauds like this aren't taking place.
The city manager plead guilty to 69 counts, and got a lesser sentence than this woman. The city council members were convicted.
