The San Fernando City Council held a [closed-session] meeting at City Hall on April 3 ("L.A. Law Firm Will Replace City Attorney"). This blatant attempt by Mayor Raul Godinez II and Councilmen Jose Hernandez and Silverio Robledo to do the city's business in the dark of night is ample indication of their disrespect for the citizens. They summarily fired the city attorney without explanation. They ignored the questions of the citizens. The people deserve answers and explanations. The real concern is not the replacement of the city attorney but how it was done.

On Monday, Manuel Montanez stood up for a tree--actually, 18 trees. Driving to work, he noticed a tall ficus being chopped down by a city crew. When he learned that as part of a beautification project 18 mature ficus trees lining San Fernando Road were being cut down, he acted immediately. Montanez blocked workers by standing in front of a second tree and called for family and friends to join him by tying themselves to other trees to save them as well.

The council met in private sessions recently to negotiate a new agreement with Time Warner, but a number of points--including how long the cable provider's new contract should last--have caused delays, said Councilwoman Joanne Baltierrez.
