Mayor Kevin Johnson
Sacramento is throwing a parade for the three local men who stopped a gunman aboard a French train.
Allen Warren entered city hall facing questions on camera about a staffer’s sexual harassment claim filed against him.
A judge has ruled in favor of the City of Sacramento in a lawsuit that alleged the mayor and staff defrauded the public in the new arena deal.
The City of Sacramento has released more than 6,100 emails which reveal how Mayor Kevin Johnson and his staff were consumed with an outside project that would benefit him.
The emails that were made public suggest involvement by Johnson and his staff on conference matters, including a PowerPoint presentation detailing Johnson’s strategy to oust the group’s executive director and take over.
Judge Christopher Krueger sorted through an email dispute with questions about how the mayor’s private Gmail accounts Johnson claims are protected by attorney-client privilege landed on city servers.
The claim paints a picture of a mayor forcing himself on a woman who works there. The mayor says it never happened, and the city attorney is backing him up.
In an impromptu press conference early Thursday morning, Mayor Kevin Johnson addressed a new sexual harassment claim leveled against him.
On the same week of the premiere, the city’s proposed budget is also out, calling for taking money and staffing in the mayor’s office to new highs.
The two sides had a feud following the decision by a grand jury to not indict a Ferguson police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Johnson stands by what he said at the community forum when he was quoted as saying the Ferguson decision was a “sad day for America,” and injustice that “just doesn’t feel right.”
Sacramento State professor Kevin Wehr says social media definitely contributed to the enormity of the response, and he says social media has become a trend on recent hot-button issues that can help to mobilize people and ideas.
