For Mayor Andersen and Diablo Vista region neighbors in Danville,
As municipal law counsel, I have represented various governments in the results of publication of employee salaries and benefits on the internet. The internet, which allows car thieves to openly sell auto parts on various lists and auction sites, is not a valid location for the sensitive nature of employee privacy.
Your consideration, Mayor Andersen, as fellow counsel, of the rights of your city employees to have protections of their financial information is not only commendable but, as you realize, in your responsibility and Town of Danville liability.
