Opinion Piece By Roger Gitlin – EYE ON DEL NORTE – January 23, 2022
Supervisor Darrin Short;, you are not doing your job!
Words fall short in expressing my profound disappointment with Del Norte Dist. 1 Supervisor Short.
* One of the duties of an elected is to be in contact with his/her constituents and scrutinize the District, drive up and down the streets, knocking on doors, looking for areas to improve the quality of life for those who reside in the District. You have failed in that endeavour.
Sadly, you have abandoned the concept of how you, Supervisor Short can actually improve conditions in your constituency.
Attached are long-standing eyesores on Jordan and Harrold Streets. Similar conditions exist on Hoover, Harding and Coolidge streets. These eyesores are long-standing.
Folks, the purpose of this post is to remind you that you deserve better than your representative to attend two meetings a month; vote YES on every conceivable tax increase and capriciously engage in the wanton spending of Other Peoples’ Money (OPM) like sponsoring a grandiose plan to spend OPM to cure misdeeds and malfeasance of the Tri-Angency, so Del Norte County would be eligible for more Commerce Dept grant money. Bad idea Supervisor.
To compound matters, you declare yourself a Republican. You, Sir, are the very definition of a R I N O.
To your benefit, you are NOT up for election, in June.
Nonetheless, your performance on the BOS is slightly below mediocre.
