Temple City Man who collapsed at City Council Returns Home

January 22nd, 2010 by Terry Miller


Temple City resident Jeffrey Briggs who collapsed at the last meeting of City Council has returned home after being released from the hospital where, for a while,  he was in an induced coma.

Briggs, 58, was speaking at the podium regarding councilwoman Wong. He collapsed and was assisted by local officials who then transported him to San Gabriel Medical Center.

Wong has pleaded not guilty to a litany of felony charges including bribery and perjury, all of which arose from accusations that she accepted bribes in return for supporting Randy Wang’s $75 million Piazza Mall project intended for construction at the corner of Rosemead and Las Tunas Blvd.

Wong could face 10 years in prison if convicted.

Briggs was upset that Judy Wong was still on the City Council considering the allegations levied against her. Wong has said consistently said she will not resign her council position.

“She does not have the right to further harm Temple City,” Briggs said before he collapsed at the podium.

    …..and a guy awaiting trial on multiple DUI’s does not have the right to drive the school bus. A person arrested for child abuse does not have the right to day care your kids. Michael Vick does not have the right to walk your dog. We get this stuff, right folks?
