Mark Sullivan, the police officer/pension trustee I referenced below, also had an interesting thing to say to me about the Kroll report: He thinks it’s “deficient.”

Sullivan, who, in the past, has been at serious odds with City Attorney Mike Aguirre, told me that Aguirre’s recent two-hour forum on the Kroll report helped persuade him that Kroll’s report lacked some important substance.

“I thought his community forum was very informative and it changed my opinion about the Kroll report,” Sullivan said. “Some of the issues he brought forward were founded.”

Most disturbing, Sullivan said, was the lack of specificity about certain legal conclusions Kroll decided to make. He noted that there was no effort on Kroll’s part to at least cite the case law it used make determinations that some city employees likely committed securities fraud while others were just negligent.

“When you pay $20 million, you have the right to have the cases they’re using footnoted in the report,” Sullivan said.

Aguirre and Sullivan haven’t always had the nicest things to say about each other. It was quite bitter there for a while.

“When I think he’s right about something, I’ll say it. When I think he’s wrong, I’ll say it,” Sullivan said.
