Atherton: Charges fly over mailers as election season wraps up

by Barbara Wood

Atherton residents should probably be forgiven if they were confused by a flurry of last-minute campaign materials they received last week, including a letter from the mayor sent to refute an earlier mailing by the Atherton Police Officers Association, which has now prepared a letter refuting the mayor's letter, adding the claim that he wrongly spent taxpayer money to send his letter.

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.

Good for Lewis and Carlson. They did the right thing in calling attention to this.

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.
