Former Temple City Mayor Judy Wong Stripped of her Appointment to Youth Commission.

December 3rd, 2009 by Terry Miller

Mayor Fernando Vizcarra has removed Councilwoman Judy Wong from the post of Youth Commissioner, and subsequently appointed Councilman Tom Chavez to work with the committee on a rotating basis.

The controversial Nov 17 appointment of a council member accused of bribery and perjury led to many heated discussion around the city and subsequently the mayor yanked her from the commission,

The committee was created to give students the chance to get involved in civics, such as making recommendations to the council on youth-related issues, officials have said.

The embattled councilwoman is charged with 10 felony charges, including bribery and perjury, stemming from accusations that she accepted bribes in return for support of developer Randy Wang’s Temple City mall project.
