Atherton: Charges fly over mailers as election season wraps up

So, it's confirmed .. the Council did not authorize the Mayor sending the detailed letter to the residents. They only gave him authorization for a high level press release.

How many parcel taxes were spent on the letter?

Back in 2007, McKeithen spent $12,000 or more on Computer Forensics of Building Deptartment Computers looking for information regarding a possible Recall against her.

Council did not approve that expense either.
