In case you missed it, reporter Kate McGinty has a front page story today that reveals Desert Hot Springs leaders are calling on Councilman Russell Betts to resign.
Betts, whose term runs until December 2015, has been accused of harassing the city’s recently departed finance director, Jason Simpson.
It’s worth noting that the news came out Thursday — the same day that Desert Hot Springs City Manager Rick Daniels was scheduled to meet with a professional consultant about creating an intense relationship-building program for council.
Council members previously voted 4-1 to spend as much as $25,000 for the sessions.
The lone vote? Betts himself.
