A couple of points related to today’s story on the SEC charges against five former city officials:
- I didn’t mention it in the story, but the attorneys for four of the five accused didn’t return phone calls for comment or issue statements. The one attorney, Frank Vecchione, issued a statement and we quoted it.
- I failed to mention Councilman Jim Madaffer among the current council members who approved the faulty bond disclosures. The story has been corrected to show that.
- I’m awfully proud of our exclusive and original reporting on this issue. Please check out this cataloging of our stories that I put together last year that displays our best work.
