Pasadena Public Health Director Placed on Temporary Administrative Leave
Pasadena Public Health Director Eric Walsh was placed on temporary paid administrative leave after online videos and audio clips of Walsh making controversial statements about homosexuality and evolution surfaced. Walsh -- who also is an associate pastor at Altadena Seventh-day Adventist Church -- became Pasadena's public health director in 2010. City officials plan to review the online sermons and investigate his ability to lead the department.
