Four City Council incumbents who lost their bid for re-election have said their goodbyes and vowed to stay active in the community, but uncertainty dogs a newly elected member.
Councilman-elect Antonio Latona, who will be sworn in on July 1, has been in discussions with city officials who say they are concerned that holding positions as a city firefighter and city councilman simultaneously may present a conflict of interest, since Latona would be both a subordinate to and supervisor of City Manager Al Greco.
