Correction & Clarification

In the May 20, 2015 issue of Sonoran News, we incorrectly identified Carefree citizen and Guest Editorialist John Traynor as a member of the Carefree Town Council. We apologize for the error.

On May 21, recalled Councilman Adam Trenk sent an e-mail, first quoting from a section of the article “Town of Cave Creek seeking new law firm” in the May 20 edition of Sonoran News, referencing him and recently terminated Town Attorney Fredda Bisman, whom he said helped him draft his motion to terminate former Town Manager Usama Abujbarah.

Trenk then stated, “I was sworn in June 3. The motion Fredda helped me with was drafted June 10. Check the facts and try not to choke on them.”

Sonoran News checked the facts and it appears Trenk told others, a number of days prior to the June 10, 2013 meeting, that he had already sent a draft of his motion to Bisman.

Whether it was prior to the June 3 meeting is uncertain.

Keep in mind, however, Trenk originally planned to terminate Abujbarah on June 3 and only because Abujbarah’s attorney was unavailable that day was the item continued to June 10.
So it seems likely Trenk’s motion was drafted prior to the June 3 meeting and prior to Trenk being sworn in.
