San Jose's redevelopment agency lays off 14 employees

See the article in today's Mercury News about the latest round of layoffs at the San Jose Redevelopment Agency.

"Among notable employees let go was Deputy Executive Director Abi Maghamfar, who helped oversee the popular Strong Neighborhoods Initiative and some downtown projects. Sal Alvarez, the interim Strong Neighborhoods manager who focused on several Eastside communities, also was on the list.
"Money for the initiative, which invests in neighborhood improvement projects, has been slashed from the new budget as Mavrogenes tries to focus his dwindling resources on big-ticket economic development projects such as the proposed downtown baseball stadium and a face-lift for the city's convention center."
