Interesting that Don Kidd managed to overlook and not mention that there was a president at that bank for over a decade before Kidd even knew where Carlsbad was. A bank president who was responsible for much of what the bank now is and who set the stage for everything else Kidd now takes credit for. A man who was active in many civic organizations and who was well known in Carlsbad for being an honest and honorable bank president. And who, if the tables were turned, would certainly give Kidd the credit for his successes. If nothing else he would have made sure his name was mentioned, which I'm not at all surprised to see that Don Kidd failed to do.

Tell it like it is has said a mouthful!

True all.

Western Commerce under Kidd has a bit less than the stellar perception reflected in the CA article.
