Mr. O' Reilly

Ms. O’Reilly,

Unfortunately the City of Maywood cancelled the City Clerk’s City Email Address at the direction of Mayor Ramon Medina, Interim City Administrator Reuben Martinez and City Attorney Michael Montgomery. I was advised that the City of Maywood couldn’t afford it and that it couldn’t justify it as a legitimate public expense since an E mail Account wasn’t required for performance of my duties as City Clerk.

I would strongly encourage you to please file a Complaint with the FPPC Fair Political Practices Committee and advised them of the situation. I was just returned my email as this past week on my office computer but denied on my personal phone where I do 98 percent of the City Business.

Sincerely,

Gerardo Mayagoitia
City Clerk
City of Maywood
