"Waiting for Backup" details Menlo Park's alleged difficulties in hiring and retaining police officers during the height of the financial boom/bubble.
Why did Rodericks include this IN THE MIDDLE OF WHAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ADVERSARIAL NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE APOA?
Why does the APOA-PAC have the SAME ARTICLE up on their website?
It's really not that hard to figure out. The APOA-PAC endorsed and gave money to candidates Elizabeth Lewis and Cary Wiest. They now own these candidates. Atherton Sergeant Sherman Hall said at a negotiation meeting last year that the APOA-PAC was ENTITLED to OWN council members. Almanac, fact check this quote from this problem officer.
Rodericks is now up for a compensation adjustment for refusing to live in the house. Instead of lowering his salary to send him a message that it's a privilege to be the Atherton city manager and live in the city manager's house, Lewis and Wiest are considering RAISING the SALARY.
What better shill to pay back the APOA-PAC than Rodericks? Lewis and Wiest get Rodericks to advance the APOA-PAC's cause, they claim they're just following the city manager's recommendations, and Rodericks gets his raise.
The only loser in this is the Atherton taxpayer. Just the way the APOA-PAC wants it. And something Cary Wiest and Elizabeth Lewis care nothing about.
The Almanac seems to be hibernating, especially on the laws broken in this so-called election through felony voter fraud and voting card falsification by a former Atherton mayor and Wiest/Lewis endorser and ally.
Who is standing up for the taxpayer here? With Kathy McKeithen gone, only Bill Widmer seems to have the taxpayer's interests in mind.
