We now know why. Jerry Carlson is also guilty of the same kind of misconduct, misconduct that Mr. Carlson has most generously referred to as an "error in judgment".
Mr. Carlson has no business voting to use public funds to sue the California High Speed Rail Authority because Jerry Carlson lives within approximately 500 feet of the tracks. Clearly a train running through his neighborood at close to 200 miles per hour every ten minutes to one half-hour would have an effect upon the marketability of his property. However that is just what Mr. Carlson has done.
It appears that Mr. Carlson along with Mr. Marsala would more appropriately be attired in an orange jumpsuit, rather than a sportcoat and tie.
I call upon Atherton to call upon the Attorney General to get to the bottom of what is going on in Atherton.
With three members of the City Council (Ms. Lewis, Mr. Carlson and Mr. Marsala) having been caught with their hands in the cookie jar it is a small wonder why Ms. Furth sees no wrong.
