Clarification

By From page A2 | July 18, 2014

In Larry Weitzman’s column June 16, “Toxic waste travels uphill,” the writer said he was misled by county CAO Terri Daly “more than I realized. In my first conversation with Daly, she implied that Bernard Carlson’s investigation of Assistant CAO Kim Kerr occurred before Kerr was hired and that Daly asked Carlson to do it. I have now learned that Carlson’s investigation of Kerr was done on his own as a result of the Amador Grand Jury findings. He mainly interviewed business people and found many interviewed thought that Kerr did an OK job and was perhaps unfairly targeted by the Grand Jury. Of course, it is unknown if those interviewed had the detailed information that I uncovered, such as the CPA audits, failed bank reconciliations, misdirected deposits and the depletion of the Local Agency Investment Fund.”
