More on the appointment / resignation of police auditor Chris Constantin. According to the Mercury News, “Campos and Councilman Ash were not informed of the potential conflict.” “‘He never disclosed to me and to other council members before we took the vote,’ Campos said.”
“(Reed) said he told council members in a closed-door session about the relationship and about two other potential concerns…”
“Constant and Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio back the mayor’s account and say he clearly disclosed the potential conflict of Constantin’s brother being on the force…‘I was there, I was present and I heard it right from Chuck’s lips,’ Constant said.” “‘...It was nine of us sitting around the table listening to the mayor.’”
The Mercury News reported, “Herrera and Pyle did not answer questions left through their offices Friday about whether they knew about the conflict when they voted.” (And, what about Liccardo?)
Shouldn’t every member of the San Jose city council be asked to weigh in on this question? Did Reed present the information about Constantin’s brother in closed session, or not?
