Did Gearhart ‘own’ officials?
February 7, 2011
During his heyday, notorious land developer Kelly Gearhart “seemed to own” some of Atascadero’s city council members, says former mayor Mike Brennler in KCCN.tv’s newest installment of its ongoing series, “A County Corrupted: Part 2.”
Brennler continues to be rebuffed by his former colleagues when he suggests Gearhart was receiving special considerations. A lengthy federal investigation into the allegations is proceeding.
