Jerry Carlson Admits Errors in Judgment
Original post made by news roundup, Atherton: other, on Apr 11, 2010
During the next City Council session Mr. Carlson will be asked whether his error in judgment included voting to be so generous as to refund $1.6 million in road impact fees (without taking a single deposition) all the while being so miserly with Jon Buckheit in the voting to settle with him for little more than nuisance value on his federal civil rights lawsuit.
Mr. Carlson does seem to have committed a grave error in judgment. He overestimated the strength of one adversary while underestimating the strength of another.
Mr. Carlson will soon learn to be more careful in picking his battles.
