Atherton: Civil conduct matter postponed by election

In light of the upcoming election for three seats on the Atherton City Council, a consensus of members agreed on Aug. 18 to put off a decision on Councilwoman Elizabeth Lewis's suggestion of a refresher course on civil conduct.

Logistics would consume a month or two, by which time a new council may be seated, Mayor Kathy McKeithen said.

"It may be a question of too little, too late," Ms. Lewis said, "but I do want to raise our level of civility."

"I do want to say," Councilman Jim Dobbie noted, "I don't think I need any training in personal conduct."
