Code Compliance Officer Garcias Leaves City

Thursday was David Garcias last day as Code Compliance Officer for the City of Imperial Beach.

David Garcias has left his post as Code Compliance Officer for the City of Imperial Beach. Thursday was his last day.

Garcias was with the city for more than 11 years and will leave to become president of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Chapter 221, said City Manager Gary Brown.

SEIU officials did not return calls for comment.

IB may no longer have a full-time Code Compliance Officer, said Assistant City Manager Greg Wade.

"We may not because of our budget situation," he said. "At this point we're not filling that position. We're waiting to talk to the union about how to proceed."

As Code Compliance Officer, Garcias was in charge of telling local residents and businesses when they violated city municipal code, from parking a car in the wrong place to improper use of a building.

As such, Garcias was often a controversial figure of local government.

Thank God for this, he is a person that has caused many a heartache for the residents and businesses of this city and should have been fired years ago.

Happy to see him go, never thought that would happen, perhaps Libi's audit had him worried. Now he can be the Union's aggravation.

SEIU. The perfect lazy fat cat job for someone bent on screwing the taxpayer ... on a even grander scale! Unions reward incompetence.

"We're waiting to talk to the union about how to proceed" said Assistant City Manager Greg Wade. This tells you that our city is run by the union and for the union. "Public Servant" has become "Union Thug".

I guess there's always room in the budget for overpaid union members with unaffordable benefits. What's one more? IB is rich!
