Bell's voters have a real choice this time, thanks to the scandal

Mar 3, 2011 10:21:53 PM- latimes.com
On March 8 the city's voters will have something they haven't had in years: candidates not hand-picked by former City Administrator Robert Rizzo — 18 of them.

When last the people of Bell had a chance to pick their local leaders, the choices were pinched, the outcome all but predetermined.

"You don't have a chance," he recalled Rizzo saying.
