"Van Nuys resident Marcelle Duncan told council members that ... a Planning Department staffer, mistakenly left the message weeks ago on her answering machine, thinking he had reached the developer" of a proposed 78-unit condominium project
"You will have the council office's support and our support," he said on the tape. "You'll win the appeal no matter what, OK?"
The project was approved, as the planner promised.
