There’s life after the City of Long Beach for Charles Theofan.
Theofan, who served under the Republican administration in Long Beach that lost control in January, will oversee the county attorney’s office, housing, community development and planning and will be paid $90,000 annually. About hiring Theofan and a new press aide, Mangano aide Brian Nevin said:
"Certain positions must be filled when vacancies occur to ensure that government continues to function."
Theofan left office days after Moody’s Investors Service downgraded the city’s bond rating in December. Theofan blamed the city's financial woes on costs related to the cleanup after Hurricane Irene and delayed tax payments from the Allegria Hotel and reimbursement payments from FEMA.
