Popular Chief Park Ranger mysteriously gets the axe

Popular Chief Ranger Albert Torres is getting the axe, LA City-style. Torres is being relocated to another position in the Department of Recreation and Parks after more than 30 years as a park ranger. Torres has been an extremely popular public servant within the parks community.

Community members are outraged at the action, which was exposed in a memo made public by not-so-beloved Assistant General Manager Kevin Regan. We knew Regan was working his managerial magic on three or four different divisions within Recreation and Parks, but this really is scandalous.

Councilman Tom LaBonge is holding a community meeting tonight where angry park goers can give him a piece of their minds.

Thursday, October 8th at 6pm
Citibank Building, 2nd floor
1965 North Hillhurst Blvd
Los Angeles
