Oscar Hernandez (politician)
Hernandez was appointed mayor of Bell, California in 2009. He also served as mayor in 2006 and 2007. In June 2009 a methamphetamine lab was found on a property Mayor Hernandez had rented out. On July 20, 2010, a scandal erupted when it was discovered that Mayor Hernandez's Chief Administrative Officer Robert Rizzo was being paid almost $800,000 per year, despite the municipality being one of the poorest in the area. On July 12, 2010, Hernandez, along with Teresa Jacobo, Luis Artiga, and George Mirabal, was recalled from the council on March 9, 2011, with over 95% of the voters voting "yes" to recall Hernandez and his colleagues.
