Placerville Mayor Stripped of Title

Placerville Mayor David Machado, facing a political scandal and criminal charges over an alleged cover-up of his property dealings, was stripped of his title Tuesday night in a unanimous vote of his City Council colleagues. City manager Clive Morris explains last night’s process.

“Two main things, the council removed Dave Machado as Mayor, which all that does is remove him from that position, but that still leaves him on the council, and then request that he take a leave of absence from his council seat for an indefinite period of time.”

Morris says Machado offered no statement in his defense and his whereabouts are unknown. Machado is expected to be arraigned on the perjury and conspiracy charges in El Dorado county Superior Court on September 20th.
