I called Petty’s office every day last week and asked if they would provide me with the bills, which Petty is required to produce by California law because the bills are paid by San Diego taxpayers. I originally put in the request more than a month ago. I’ve been calling since last Monday and I haven’t had a single call or e-mail back from Petty or her secretary.
Just now, the secretary at Petty’s office told me Petty will not be in the office all week. Petty’s secretary is still “in a meeting,” the secretary said.
I called SEDC Board Chairman Cruz Gonzalez, who’s acting as a de-facto head of SEDC while the agency searches for an interim leader. Gonzalez told me he spoke to Petty last week.
“She said she’d get the information to you early this week,” Gonzalez said.
