O.C. Grand Jury questions light rail contract awarded to Cordoba Corp.

“Mayor Miguel Pulido intervened directly after city staff, acting on the advice of the expert panel, recommended that a different company get the contract, according to the grand jury report. He called together a special committee of council members to do its own evaluation – but nobody kept a record of those discussions, the grand jury found.”
