Your description of my action in the Nov. 18 The Malibu Times [“Economic plan committee debates its usefulness”] is out of context and misleading. As I explained to the Economic Plan Committee at the time, my suggestion that the members of the City Council not be placed on the consultant’s contact list was because the consultant plans to contact them anyway. In fact, at a prior meeting with the consultant, I had encouraged him to contact all the City Council members.
Since the consultant’s contact list was intended to be for just 15 individuals, placing the City Council members on it would be redundant and possibly reduce the input to the consultant. I request that you print a note in the next Malibu Times to clarify this. Thank you.
