Lawsuit settlements and attorney fees totaling around $900,000 in the past year. Two building officials abruptly retiring in the last four years after coming under intense scrutiny and criticism over their oversight of the building department. A $1 million structural budgetary deficit in a community famous for its multimillionaires and billionaires. And a City Council that's become almost dysfunctional in the eyes of many in the community because of its inability to find common ground on key issues.

I am responding to the horrible comment about my husband Jim Janz. First, all the construction that we have done on our house has been in full compliance with the law and met all codes. Secondly, Jim left the council when his second term was up because he felt he needed to focus on his family, and other professional and civic interests.
Atherton is blessed to have had someone of Jim's caliber give a total of 18 years to the planning commision and city council without any compensation or reward.
The person who wrote such a mean, wrong and unfair comment should knock on our door and be willing to share their concerns openly to Jim who is more than willing to address the concerns they may have.
