City of Bell council members elect new mayor
BELL, Calif. (KABC) -- Bell's newly installed mayor vows to restore integrity to the scandal-plagued city.
Ali Saleh was elected Sunday night by his fellow city council members. The 35-year-old is a lifelong resident of the city, a business owner and director of the Bell Business Association.
Every incumbent council member was voted out of office last month after it was revealed they were paying themselves $100,000 a year for part-time service.
Those members also granted the city manager a salary and benefits package of more than $1 million a year.
