Last Thursday, we published a story that showed that Councilmen Anthony Becker and Kevin Park failed to report their meetings with the 49ers.
They’re required to because of a City ordinance.
One day later, community leader Howard Myers filed an official complaint against Becker and Park with the City.
“We have enough lawlessness these days by public officials,” said Myers. “When it is local and blatant it is time to speak up.”
Myers cites our story in the official complaint and wrote the following:
“It has come to my attention that two of our city council members have been violating a city transparency ordinance. The fact they have not published accurate calendars is bad enough but the fact it is to the benefit of the Niners, their primary campaign donor, is especially egregious. The fact the Niners appear to be giving certain council members their marching orders is bad enough. But they should at least be forced to comply with the law and be honest about it.”
After our report and Myers’ complaint, Becker revised his June calendar and added his meeting with the 49ers on June 21 and June 28.
But Park still has not amended his calendar from January where he failed to report his 49er meeting on January 26.
We brought the issue to light about Park’s failure to report on April 27.
It’s now 100 days since Park had his 49er meeting and has failed to amend his calendar.
We’ll continue to follow the story and how the City handles Myers’ complaint.
