August 11,2016 (El Cajon) – Tempers grew heated during Tuesday’s El Cajon City Council hearing, where Council member Tony Ambrose scolded a citizen, Richard Graydon, who had criticized the City's approach to homelessness. The agenda included the city’s responses to two critical Grand Jury reports, one on homeless issues and the other calling for formation of a citizens’ police oversight board.
The City determined it already does enough to help homeless people--more than other East County cities-- and also concluded there is no need to allow citizens'oversight of any complaints against El Cajon Police.
