Re: “'Overlooked'

Peter Childs is a greater environmentalist and more important a better human than Scott Graeson will ever be, One need look no further than their personal lives to see who is f'd up and who has the respect and admiration of multiple generations of knowledgeable and enlightened North Coast residents to know whose life has had value. Thank you Peter for all you have done for the betterment of us all. Your comments are, as usual well thought and well said. Our children could not have a better role model in their personal and professional lives than Perter Childs.

Re: “Seeking Settlement

This is just the latest example in a very long list of inappropriate actions from within the County Counsels office. Unethical behavior and blatant undermining of the legitimate public process occurs with unnerving regularity and is a disservice not only to the public but to the many employees in that office who actually do their jobs well. It is my very firm belief that County Counsel Blanck is of the highest integrity and honesty as an individual but he is without the support and direction he needs to make much needed staff changes. Responsibility for the illegal and unethical actions of staff ultimately rests with the Board of Supervisors and unfortunately there is only a minority of members in that body who possess the actual backbone to hold staff accountable. Without a vote of three we will continue to see these kinds of cases over and over again. Further we will see much needed tax dollars wasted on many more lawsuits in the future. Regrettably, I too have been forced to file suit several times to "encourage" our Board to follow the most obvious of laws and act on the most egregious of staff misdeeds. I took this extreme action only after literally begging our Supervisors to please simply do the right and responsible thing in the first place. Each time the County has lost it's case proving the errors and misjudgments over and over again. One Supervisor even went so far as to suggest that the County increase it's insurance to cover it's many legal losses. While simply paying out more taxpayer dollars to cover one's mistakes is one alternative perhaps simply following the law and not losing so many lawsuits in the first place might be the more prudent alternative. We can all only hope for more maturity in the future. Unfortunately the courts are the only recourse available to the public when their elected officials fail to take the actions they were elected to fulfill. I suggest letting your Supervisor know in no uncertain terms that you as a taxpayer and voter hold them personally responsible for the reckless actions of the people who work for them.
