Federal Criminal Prosecutor, Charles Pell, pulls his papers to run for Treasurer for the City of Montebello in the upcoming November 3rd, 2015 election.
Charles Pell, an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, is an experienced Federal Prosecutor who has worked for the United States Department of Justice for the past 10 years.
Charles Pell recently received the 2015 California Lawyer Attorney of the Year (CLAY) Award as Criminal Prosecutor for successfully convicting over 50 people, including lawyers, tax preparers, and their clients in a tax fraud case worth more than $250,000,000. That case was one of the largest cases involving a criminal enterprise in a complex tax scheme where multiple convictions were successfully obtained in United States District Court.
Charles is the son of esteemed and well respected educators and long time residents of Montebello, Cleve and Barbara Pell. He was born at Beverly Hospital in Montebello, a graduate of Montebello High School, a former classified employee and teacher with the Montebello Unified School District, and current MUSD Personnel Commissioner.
Mr. Pell is also a military veteran who proudly served as an Intelligence Officer with the United States Navy.
When asked why he is running for office Charles says, “I am tired of the corruption and lack of responsible government in Montebello, and I believe that I am uniquely qualified to be an excellent City Treasurer given my professional background. I would like to give back to my community by restoring trust and making Montebello a safe and fiscally-responsible city.”
In addition to his Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics, Charles Pell’s educational background includes a Master’s degree in Education from Whittier College and a Master’s degree in Economics from the University of Southern California, where he also obtained his Juris Doctorate degree from USC Law School, graduating in the top 10%.
