Clean sweep: Council removes EDC board of directors

August 27, 2014

In an emotionally charged council chamber Tuesday evening, the council voted by a 5-to-2 margin to remove the EDC board of directors — Don Avant, Nati Saldivar, Frances Hobbs, Jim DePauw and Scott MacKenzie.

Mayor Larry McLellan was joined by council members Raul Marquez Jr., Justin Myers, Bobby McDonald and Raul Benavides in voting to oust the board, while Carmen Harbour and Marvin Boyd voted against the action.
