Hundreds of angry residents of a modest blue-collar Los Angeles suburb marched to the homes and businesses of city officials in a protest sparked by the sky-high salaries of three recently departed administrators.
More than 200 residents of Bell, where one in six lives in poverty, walked Sunday to a market owned by Mayor Oscar Hernandez, then his home as they called for his resignation.
They then did the same with some members of the City Council, with many marchers wearing T-shirts that read "My city is more corrupt than your city."
The protest was organized by Bell Association to Stop the Abuse, a group founded after the Los Angeles Times reported that Bell's city manager, police chief and assistant city manager were all being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
