I have an idea: The cities of Long Beach, Fullerton and even Riverside need help that this man so capably gave. Maybe he can apply there. I was thinking of the suicide of Drew as I read the headline and I vividly remember the school district's "not our fault" response, without even having any type investigation. The response was, "He wasn't bullied." Well, this person's competence might be valuable in another city; however, it definitely wasn't what Glendale, and especially La Crescenta needed or need. Thanks for reading.
