Thank you to the Town Council and Town Manager for giving the citizens/taxpayers the opportunity to present their views on this issue before the police negotiations begin.

what this is is the Lewis/Weist dominated city council (purchased by APOA funds) deciding to give Rodericks a raise (instead of a decrease) because Rodericks decided not to live in the Atherton city manager's house (which puts him on 24x7 call), but rather back in Marin (I think).

Why would Lewis and Weist do this for Rodericks? Why does a decrease in duties lead to a raise??

Because Rodericks is going to make the case to give the APOA monies they are not entitled to. It's the you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours, culture in government and in Atherton in particular that victimizes taxpayers so much.
