Roybal defends 'roundtable at Hillcrest'

-A A +A
By David Giuliani

Councilman Cruz Roybal took exception to comments by Mayor Tony Marquez recently about the “roundtable at Hillcrest.”

In an interview with the Optic, Marquez was referring to the group of politicos who have been known to meet in the morning and have coffee at the popular local restaurant. One of the politicos is Marty Suazo, the chairman of the San Miguel County Democratic Party.

Suazo told the Washington Post last year that loyal Democrats can get a bump in the hiring process at local government entities if they consult with party leaders.
