Golf anyone? No clean slate - at least one City of Elk Grove highly paid executive accepted gifts

It was bound to happen. Earlier it was reported that none of the City of Elk Grove's executive team had accepted gifts during 2021.

That changed in recent days.

Darren Wilson. 

According to information posted by the Elk Grove City Clerk's office, one of the city's highly paid executives found it necessary to accept a gift from a company directly dealing with his city hall department. That person was the city's director of development services, Darren Wilson.

According to his statement of economic interest California Form 700, Wilson accepted a gift valued at $150. The gift was from home builder Taylor Morrison for a ticket to the Elk Grove Golf Classic

That Wilson has a salary of about $200,000 not including a very generous benefit package, and the median family in Elk Grove - the citizens he presumably serves - is about half that and accepts this gift is curious. 

This much can be said about Wilson - at least the gift was reported.

Jeez, Taylor Morrison already created "Allan Detrick Ave." in one of their new subdivisions. Can we now foresee a "D. Wilson St." in the future? Or how about naming one of those huge drainage pits after him: "Darren Wilson Lake"
