I have just been informed that San Mateo Supervisor Dave Pine has contacted County Counsel and asked him to prepare a resolution rescinding the Lifetime Achievement Award given to William Ayres in 2002. This item will be placed on the agenda for the Board of Supervisor's meeting scheduled for June 4th.
This is a long time coming. Victims and other citizenshave been asking the Board to rescind the award to Ayres for years and their requests have been ignored.
Back in October , 2011 I personally spoke with Rich Gordon , who nominated Ayres for the award back in 2002 , at the Palo Alto Farmer's Market about rescinding the award. I got a very frosty reaction.
