Here is the email which the Cudahy City Clerk gave to me about Mayor Cristian Markovich, who could not attend one of the Cudahy City Council meetings.
The February 22nd meeting was pivotal.
Jack Guerrero refused to bail out his absentee colleagues. Financial matters required three affirmative votes, and he refused to be that third vote.
A number of spending items did not go through.
He then left the meeting, refusing to discuss or engage in any further votes because his absentee colleagues (Markovich and Garcia) were not present to be accountable and serve the community.
Here is a picture of the email:
