A Rimbey town councillor whose inappropriate handling of food at Gasoline Alley’s Carl’s Jr. has been made public is deeply sorry for his actions.

In a telephone interview, Thursday, Jack Webb struggled to find the words to convey his feelings of remorse.

“I washed my hands a thousand times,” he said, admitting his action showed serious lack of judgment.

“I know I publicly need to apologize,” he said.

A CBC video shows Webb stirring a large container of sauce using only his bare hands. Footage also shows other violations including a chicken tender being placed back on a plate after it had been dropped on the floor.

Webb operated the popular Monteray Jack’s Family Restaurant in Rimbey for several years before becoming co-owner of Gasoline Alley’s Carl’s Jr.

The councillor, who is seeking a third term on council, plans to issue a public apology later today.
