City Council and City Manager

Did the City use its resources to unfairly
(illegally?) lobby the voters to Vote No on Measure M?

As you know the City very recently released 7
files relating to this issue. All of the 7 files
are in PDF format, are not original files, and were sent to the Almanac.

Of special note are three of these files: These
three files show a source date for the original
document as being Nov 12, 2014, the same date
that the PDF files were created. To remove any
suspicion that the files were altered in a way to
change their contents or intent, the City should
immediately release to the public and to the
press the original, unmodified files.

Below I list the files in question:

There are still many questions to be answered,
but for sure, what has been released thus far by
the City has left more questions to be answered.

(These dates are uncovered when opening these
files in Adobe Acrobat Pro, entering CTRL-D (PC)
and following the meta data trail.)
