Cort declared he would resign early last month after activist David Dilworth and former Councilman Terrance Zito threatened a recall campaign against him if he didn’t resign immediately. Cort said at the time that the threat wasn’t his reason for leaving office.
Dilworth declined to comment on Cort’s resignation or recall plans, and Zito was unavailable.
The appointment of the city manager, which began after previous manager Jim Colangelo resigned in January — is still unresolved.
Now can the town somehow get some leadership? Leadership that has no kooky sustainable agendas, no personal gains, nothing but serious plans to serve the city’s residents first?
Mayor Cort Quits As Promised

David Dilworth is without doubt one of Pacific Grove’s finest native sons! His achievements in the areas of environment and democracy are legendary.

Letters From The Editor – Who Sticks Up For Dilworth?
Ha ha, it’s just like his political approach. Hand out fliers. LOL.
Although it does remind Squid of Dilworth handing out flyers (printed on paper made from 35 percent post-consumer fibers, of course) at gallery openings back in 2003. “Glass slipper awaits? Tigger wants to settle down with a partner and grow a family,” read the flyer. Tigger, aka Dilworth, was looking for love.

Pacific Grove resident David Dilworth has issued another e-mail, this time apologizing for his previous e-mail to Mayor Dan Cort that told him to resign or face a recall.
Dilworth would not comment further on the letter, saying it was addressed “to the whole community” and that it speaks for itself.
David Dilworth Apology “To The Community”
In an email, Dilworth said he has “learned good people were angered and saddened” by his actions last week.
“I made a mistake using words that reasonable people find politically threatening and inappropriate,” he wrote. “I accept responsibility for these consequences and I deeply regret how my actions have upset good people.I promise to be much more careful of my words and comportment in the future.”
Unlike the big fussy press conference in front of the post office at the launch of the attack, he taps out a (too late) apology.

Says the activist is a symptom that is fracturing the community.
“I deeply regret how my actions have upset good people and I promise to be much more careful of my words and comportment in the future,” Dilworth said in his e-mail to the community.
Cort, however, said Dilworth made no attempt to communicate with him or any other city council member since last week’s original e-mail and said Dilworth wants “the media to forgive him.”

Recall votes don’t seem to be there
If David Dilworth couldn’t get enough votes to be elected to the Pacific Grove City Council in 2008, and previously, why does he think he can get enough to recall Mayor Dan Cort, and council members Deborah Lindsay, Bill Kampe, and Vicki Stilwell?

What’s that spin?
Dilworth’s role so far been as a representative. “I’m sort of the logistics guy, helping get information out,” Dilworth said. “I’m also the one who tried to give the mayor a courtesy call (referring to the email), but he took that as a threat.”
