Compton mayor often absent from meetings

COMPTON, Calif. According to the Los Angeles Times, Mayor Eric Perrodin, who earns one of the highest salaries in Los Angeles County for being a part-time mayor, attended only 59 of 162 city council meetings and commission meetings in the past year.

Records show that on some occasions when Perrodin did show up, he was either at the meeting an hour late or left after only 30 minutes.

Perrodin said he misses many meetings because of his busy schedule as a full-time county prosecutor.

Perrodin earns $63,000 annually for his /*Compton*/ duties.
