City of San Marcos
On Behalf of City Manager Bert Lumbreras
November 2, 2021
Over the weekend an updated story related to a pending lawsuit against the City and multiple City officials regarding an incident in late October 2020 was released. The City denies the allegations contained within the lawsuit. Because of the pending litigation, we cannot comment publicly and must wait for our account to be heard in court. In the process of preparing documents to turn over to the plaintiffs in this case as part of the discovery process in late October 2021, we have learned of some insensitive comments made between employees. These are not in keeping with the values of our organization, so San Marcos Police Chief Stan Standridge is addressing those comments according to normal disciplinary procedures.
