The woes of twice bankrupt Allen J. Parker, age 71 may be over.
The bankrupt city of San Bernardino Hires the Twice Bankrupt Allen Parker as City Manager based on his “experience”.
The bankrupt city of San Bernardino has hired a new city manager who, according to court filings, has twice declared personal bankruptcy and was recently ousted from the board of a small community’s water company after being sued by shareholders.
The city council voted unanimously on Tuesday night to hire Allen J. Parker, 71, as its city manager on an annual salary of almost $222,000. He replaces an interim city manager who resigned last month because, according to friends, she was exasperated by the city’s internal divisions.
