Candidates Circling State Sen. Mendoza, Central Basin Generosity

Montebello mayor says she is ‘seriously considering’ run against embattled Sen. Tony Mendoza

With state Sen. Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia) on a leave of absence pending a sexual harassment probe, Montebello Mayor Vanessa Delgado said Tuesday that one reason she is considering a possible election challenge to the incumbent is that there is no one standing up for the Senate district with him absent.

Other names being bandied about for SD 32 (the southern part of SGV) are former Assemblyman Rudy Bermudez, Cerritos College trustee Sandra Salazar, and Angela Acosta-Salazar, a former Rio Hondo Community College trustee. March 4 is the filing deadline, unless Mendoza either resigns or doesn’t run again. Then the deadline is March 9.

He worked at a water district for just seven days. But it ended up costing $1.5 million

By last fall, Beilke had found work at a company that operates a solar farm in El Mirage in the Mojave Desert. It’s run by a former Central Basin executive.

His job involved finding local governments willing to do business.
