Adams Lectures City Attorney Gridley

Here's the letter that Councilman Steve Adams sent to City Attorney Mike Gridley re: correcting Adams at City Council meetings: “I have been hesitant in writing to you to address my concern, because I do not want to damage our relationship, which I feel up to this point has been good. However, I believe my concern is of greater importance. Twice now you have rebutted me during a council meeting. After the first time you did call to apologize, which was respectable. I do believe however, that it is not appropriate for you to rebut me openly during a council meeting. I do not believe it is your intent to be disrespectful, but it gives that appearance to all other parties (mayor & council, staff and especially the public). I do value you(r) legal opinion, (please do not take this as snide) but, you are not an judge or the judge, and I have the right to express my opinions. I respectfully ask that in the future, (unless asked) you please refrain from rebutting me during a council meeting, instead addressing me after the meeting or contacting me at a later date.” (For the record, Gridley declined a public request from Huckleberries Online for this letter, citing attorney-client privilege.)
