A July 29 editorial, "Costco and the Mayor" concerning Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne's voluntary recusal on City Council actions involving Costco and Johnson Drive referenced "a task force he appointed."
The "task force" actually referred to the Johnson Drive Economic Development Zone (JDEDZ), which isn't a task force or a committee, but a proposed zoning amendment that was halted when Measure MM was put on the ballot.
Mayor Thorne did not go outside his purview and appoint a task force, alone or as part of the City Council. There is no task force related to the JDEDZ.
We regret the error.
