Kenn Gardner settles up

Posted by on Fri, Sep 12, 2008 at 7:02 PM

The row between Wake County Commissioner  Kenn Gardner and the non-profit he says owes him hundreds of thousands in back-pay has ended, reports the News & Observer.

In exchange for dropping his lawsuit, the Triangle Aquatic Center (TAC) has agreed to pay Gardner $25, 000, a relative pittance compared to the $400, 000 he was demanding for his role in the design of a Cary private pool.  The settlement has not, however, stopped TAC officials from filing a countersuit seeking damages for what they say are the pool's architectural failings.

Meanwhile, Gardner, a one-time TAC board member, remains tight lipped amidst accusations that his public advocacy of--and compensation for work on--the TAC backed project constitutes a conflict of interest.
