Aitken: Lack of Transparency Alone Should Halt Angel Sale

Wylie Aitken, the former lead negotiator for Anaheim in dealing with the Angel management, makes the following points in an article on the Angel sale:
• The current process has been fatally flawed
• The back door, secret negotiations were in stark contrast to previous negotiations
• The council has a duty to make public the prior negotiations and the negotiations undertaken by Sidhu
• The failure to allow public comments is totally unjustified
