Those in attendance included: Wade Benton (contractor), Jerry Ozuniga (contractor), Rose Ryan (former manager for City of S.A. Solid Waste and Recycling and classmate with Elena at Jefferson High), Edward Pape (contractor). Nancy Beward (former manager City Public Works), Andrew Cameron (former manager City Grant Monitoring and Administration), Elvie Olivarri (former employee City Public Works).
