Indio’s new City Attorney is Steven Graham who is a law partner with Derek Cole, Oakley’s City Attorney. Yes, law partner with Derek Cole who told the community so many times, in support of Bryan Montgomery, City Manager, that they needed to build a certain fast-food restaurant (or storage facility, or car wash, or gas station, or 7-11) or the city would face a law suit. In my perception, having law partners working in Indio and Oakley is not a wonderful step forward, and new direction, for the City.
