ABSTRACT: On January 26, 2017, SQUID FRY, MONTEREY COUNTY WEEKLY, stated that “a rumor swirling at Carmel City Hall last week, that a resignation was forthcoming from City Attorney Don Freeman. Squid’s colleague called Freeman, who said there was nothing to it, and he wasn’t sure what games people were playing.” However, at the City Council Regular Meeting on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, City Attorney Don Freeman made an “official announcement” stating that “this will be my last year,” “it is my intent to retire from the City of Carmel and let somebody else take over — it’s been awhile, and I think that’s probably a good move for both the city and myself.” Although “retiring” from the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea, he will continue to serve as city attorney for the City of Seaside and practice law, according to reporting in The Carmel Pine Cone, dated February 10, 2017.
