Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008 | I don’t get it. Chula Vista refused to pay its former city manager David Garcia $195,000 after he was fired for looking at pictures of Pamela Anderson on the Internet. Southeastern Economic Development Corp. is allowing Carolyn Y. Smith to keep her $100,000-plus severance after she was fired for basically diverting funds into her own pocket. Anyone else see a disconnect? I realize these are two different systems in place, but one has to wonder what Smith would have had to do to NOT receive this bonus upon being fired.
