LAX CEO Gina Marie Lindsey said Molina’s responsibilities are being expanded to include a newly structured customer service function. “These new responsibilities put him at the center of LAWA’s critical engagement with communities, agencies and government, along with its delivery of passenger service.” (MAKE THAT "WERE GOING TO BE.")
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — CBS Investigative reporter David Goldstein has learned that a top LAX official has resigned his post after allegations surfaced that he was sexting and sending sexually explicit messages on his LAX-issued phone.
Goldstein tracked Michael Molina down at his house but Molina had no comment.
LAX CEO Gina Marie Lindsay confirmed the resignation to Goldstein late Wednesday afternoon.
Goldstein asked Lindsay if the allegations of sexting were true and she replied, “There were some allegations of that. I asked him about it and he resigned.”
Molina was with LAX for three years. His reported salary: $192,400.
Mayor Villaraigosa declined to comment about the resignation but said if the allegations were true, it was certainly not appropriate, “on any city issued phone…or any phones for that matter.”
Prior to working for LAX, Goldstein reports that Molina was a chief of staff for council member Janice Hahn. She told Goldstein, “Mike used bad judgment. I asked him about it and he resigned…and I can’t say more.” (original post)
Michael Molina was appointed to the position of Deputy Executive Director of External Affairs for Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) in March 2010.
Following seven years of service as chief of staff to Los Angeles 15th District Councilmember Janice Hahn, Molina joined LAWA in 2008 as Senior Director of Government Affairs. In that position, he was responsible for coordinating all of LAWA’s legislative activities and serving as liaison to local, state and federally elected officials.
“He successfully steered LAWA through the legislative process here in the City as well as in Sacramento and Washington, DC,” LAWA Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey said.
Later in 2008, Molina duties were expanded and his position title was changed to Senior Director of External Affairs to reflect those new responsibilities, which included managing the activities of LAWA’s Government Affairs, Public Relations, Community Relations, Air Service Marketing and Business and Job Resources divisions.
