Azusa : Resignation Rescinded

December 23, 1990

Councilman Tony Naranjo has reversed his decision to resign as chairman of the city's Drug and Gang Task Force and liaison to the Police Department, he said in a statement Thursday.

Naranjo said he changed his mind because of community pressure to remain in the posts. He had announced his resignation during last week's City Council meeting after a shouting match with Councilman Stephen Alexander about Naranjo's arrest record.

Naranjo, while working as a bail bond investigator in 1986, was arrested for impersonating a police officer. He later pleaded no contest and was fined $150 and sentenced to six months summary probation.

Alexander on Monday had proposed an ordinance that would prevent anyone convicted of impersonating a police officer--or of any other misdemeanor or felony--from participating police ride-alongs, an integral part of the liaison job.
