class="gkFeaturedItemTitle" San Gabriel Sets Hearing April 25 on Elected Councilman's Residency

San Gabriel City Council will hold a hearing on April 25 to investigate the question of where recently elected councilman Chin Ho Liao is a legal resident of the city. The council recently refused to install him into office despite his election in the March balloting.

Some are calling the hearing a "kangaroo court," while others are saying it is the responsibility of the council to decide the issue. The action by the council is unprecendented in Southern California.

The hearing will be held in San Gabriels small council chambers at 425 S. Mission Ave. and begins at 1 p.m.

A San Gabriel resident Fred Paine has alleged that Liao does not live in San Gabriel, although he is registered to vote at a condo in the city.

Th city's outgoing council, including defeated council men David Gutierrez and Mario De La Torre voted not to seat Liao because of Paine's allegations.

Subsequently, Liao filed suit to force the city to seat him on the council. The Superior Court set a date of May 14 for a hearing.
