South L.A. council candidates face off in debate

Feb 13, 2011 12:35:42 AM- latimes.com
Forescee Hogan-Rowles accuses Councilman Bernard C. Parks of neglecting his district and criticizes his simultaneous pay and pension. He challenges her knowledge of the district and the city's budget crisis.

With less than a month before the March 8 election, Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard C. Parks squared off with two rivals at a fiery debate Saturday where he was accused of neglecting the needs of constituents in his sprawling South Los Angeles district while taking home more than $440,000 annually from his pension and his council salary. The former police chief waved off those charges, arguing that neither of his opponents had the experience to lead the city in the midst of a budget crisis.
