Mayor’s Response to Councilmember Allegations The following press release is authored by the City of South Lake Tahoe’s Mayor Wendy David. South Lake Tahoe, CA (April 16, 2018) – On April 14th, Brooke Laine, a fellow South Lake Tahoe City Council member, publicly brought forth serious accusations and allegations against our City leaders. Because of the gravity of Ms. Laine's allegations, I, as Mayor, believe I have a duty to ensure that the claims that the City Council, City Clerk, previous City Manager, Acting City Manager, previous City Attorney, Interim City Attorney, and indeed any city employee has violated the law are fully and adequately investigated. I have therefore recommended that the Police Chief communicate with the El Dorado District Attorney and provide information needed to initiate an investigation into the numerous allegations that "multiple violations of law have occurred." I have no doubt that the results of this investigation will plainly show that Ms. Laine's accusations are misguided and untruthful. I believe that a thorough and independent investigation will provide the community, the City Council, City staff and other elected and appointed officials facts and truth as opposed to opinion and biased conjecture. I am saddened and disappointed that Ms. Laine holds these damaging opinions. I have no doubt that the results of this investigation will plainly show that Ms. Laine's accusations are misguided and untruthful. ###
