Disharmony on Calexico City Council

(Complaint filed against Calexico City Council members)….It was filed by the Mayor.

It is being reported that Mayor Maritza Hurtado has filed a Sexual Discrimination Complaint against Council members Joong Kim, Luis Castro and Mayor Pro-Tem Bill Hodge. The complaint was filed with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on May 29th. This is not the first complaint against Kim. While serving on the Calexico Unified School District Board, two Board members complained about his actions. Letty Zuno Vizcarra complained that Kim repeatedly asked to touch her stomach and that he grabbed her hands against her will. Another School Board member, Ruth Duarte, accused Kim of inappropriate behavior and demeaning attitude. Duarte filed a complaint against Kim with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, but she later dropped the complaint. She said at the time she had dropped the investigation in hopes of increasing harmony on the board. Kim no longer serves on the School Board.
