Bradley Would Fire Top Official

September 14, 1987

Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley said today that he intends to fire Sylvia Cunliffe from her job as head of the Los Angeles City Department of General Services if allegations are true that she engaged in favoritism, criminal misconduct and mismanagement in running the city's fourth-largest agency.

Bradley said that while the allegations "are serious enough to warrant Sylvia Cunliffe's discharge" he will give his appointee an opportunity to rebut the charges by Oct. 5 before deciding whether to dismiss her from her $90,243-a-year job. Bradley's decision to fire Cunliffe would require confirmation by the City Council to force her removal. Cunliffe has vowed to fight any disciplinary action.
