Los Angeles district suspends 4 construction consultants

Nov. 17, 2010
The four ended their work with the district, then were rehired after forming a new company

From The Los Angeles Times: Four key consultants behind the Los Angeles Unified School District construction program have been suspended from their work with school system pending an internal investigation into their recently formed company. The suspended consultants — Charlie Anderson, John Creer, Rod Hamilton and Edwin Van Ginkel — have held prominent roles in acquiring real estate and overseeing environmental reviews, planning and school design over the last decade. District officials have ordered a reduction in the number of highly paid outside consultants because of the ongoing budget crisis. The four consultants officially had left the district only to be rehired immediately this fall as a group in a newly formed company.
