The vice president of a Los Angeles community college co-owned a company that gained half a million dollars from her college through a construction program she oversaw on her campus, the Los Angeles Times reported. Karen Hoefel, who co-owns the company with her husband, was vice president of administrative services at Mission College. She quit last year after the Times asked questions about a possible conflict and the district told her that she had to quit or the company she and her husband own would be excluded from future business. The Times has been running a series raising numerous questions about the management of a massive construction project in the Los Angeles Community College District, and the district has been highly critical of the series.
