He does not identify who the rogue emailer is, nor what was said in that email that was the misinformation that he had to correct, and only then inform the Commissioners and City Officials what “we were [already] doing.”
Boks is making it sound like the program could have gone on for weeks more allowing plenty of time to go through channels except for that darn rogue email.
If there were an email that gave misinformation, you send out an email or post on Truth versus Rumor that there was an email with misinformation and then state what the facts were.
