The San Bernardino police officers' union took a very public shot at several of the bankrupt city's elected officials with a billboard proclaiming, "Congratulations! You've made San Bernardino the WORST run city in America!" The billboard featured photographs of Mayor Pat Morris and four of the seven city council members -- Wendy McCammack, Fred Shorett, Virginia Marquez and Rikke Van Johnson. The sign referenced an article by financial news site 24/7 Wall Street on "The Best and Worst Run Cities in America," which named San Bernardino as the worst-run city.
