Mayor Jerry Sanders said this morning that he wants to talk to Bob Watkins, the airport authority chairman, before he determines whether Watkins should stay on the board or resign.
I asked Sanders whether he remains confident in Watkins, who’s been criticized since we revealed discrepancies in his economic interest disclosure reports and his story of who he took to a Chargers game in London last year (his niece’s husband, not a member of Parliament).
“I want to talk with Bob before I make any assessment at all,” Sanders said. “I want to talk to him about the whole circumstance. He’s called a few times, but I just want to sit down and have a conversation with him and listen to what he’s got to say about the whole thing before I make any assessment.”
Update: The two are scheduled to meet Thursday.
