Will Carless Discusses SEDC Dismissal

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

Carolyn Smith has been dismissed as President of San Diego's Southeast Economic Development Corporation.

After a six hour public meeting that included public testimony by supporters of Smith, the SEDC board voted unanimously to remove her from the position she's held for 14 years.

The action comes after a long investigation into allegations that Smith was padding her salary and the salaries of her staff members.

We're joined on Morning Edition by Will Carless, the reporter for Voice of San    Diego.org who broke the story.
