|City Councilperson Claims Half Moon Bay Steals Property|
Yes, that is the claim of Councilperson Farmer John. You can listen to him in his own words confessing to the crime. If ever Dr Theodor Reik needed an example of his theory "The Compulsion To Confess" it is certainly here.
Reviewing the video of the meeting I could find nothing that would bring such an admission to head. They were discussing additional space for city staff at the time.
In the long run it was a hellofa good deal. We got the land for nothing and the insurance companies and the county actually paid the lawsuit.
That's what I call great financial management not stealing.
