In last week’s article about Rebekah Evans’ departure from the chamber, I want to make it clear that I never said something I was quoted as saying. While the beginning of the sentence was correct about believing politics being an issue in Rebekah’s departure, I never said the end of the sentence, which was “…in an effort to defeat potential legislation by the Malibu City Council to enact a formula retail ordinance or a diversification ordinance.”

The words “formula retail ordinance” and “diversification ordinance” would never have crossed my lips, as they are topics which I do not use in conversation as they are foreign to me. 

Someone else much smarter than I may have mentioned this, but not me.
