Communication to Councilmember Monica Rodriguez… Following is text of a letter I just sent to CD7, in reference to a publication that any moral, ethical elected official ought to renounce. This document was produced and paid for by a Monica Rodriguez supporter and is an insult to everyone in this District. We expect moral and ethical leadership from our elected officials, not low class politics. I stand by every word in this document.
his publication is an insult to our intelligence and we are all more ignorant having read it.
My questions: This publication is an insult to our intelligence and we are all more ignorant having read it.
Will you renounce this publication from one of your supporters as divisive, unethical, hateful and biased as any ethical community leader would?
Have you reported this publication from one of your supporters as a form of political contribution given it’s clearly an effort to assist your administration and candidacy? Should this be reported to the ethics watchdogs, the City Attorney, the press, DONE and others?
Do you think we are not watching and preparing to take action on things like this?
This is our community. Not yours. You are paid, oathed and morally bound to repesent us. But, you fail to represent us. A recent PR piece by you talked about how you 11 endured 11 fires in the first months of your administration. We were insulted by that statement. You have not endured anything. We, the residents and taxpayers in CD7, endured the fires, suffered property damage, have had to deal with insurance matters, faced the loss of life and property, and were stunned by your lack of response. You endured NOTHING. All you did was flit from PR moment to another PR moment.
For the record, know that you did not return my calls, emails or texts seeking assistance on behalf of all the residents of Shadow Hills during the initial, La Tuna Fire, and then the Creek Fire, and you continue to fail to live up to your pledge on the high speed train project. We will continue to hold you accountable and vet on the high speed train project. We will continue to hold you accountable and vet your every action.
Don’t you hate it that some people keep track and keep score? I will post this on NextDoor and also Facebook. You’ve had one year and your time is up!
Not that I expect an answer, but know that this kind of thing is an insult to our communities and you and your staff ought to represent the entire District and show some class.
