email fiasco at city hall

Mar 4, 2009 by

Without even questioning the legality of Veronica White giving Tracie Washington emails between councilpersons and their constituents, one must consider the following. How many lives could be put in jeopardy if Ms. White were to post these emails? Who will be in charge of selecting the emails for posting on

Everyday concerned citizens write their councilperson about everything from crime problems to zoning concerns. Releasing these emails would be the tantamount to exposing potential witnesses and would further damage the already crumbling trust we all have in our city government.

I cannot for the life of me understand the recklessness of both Ms. Washington and Ms. White. It appears that their mission is far more personal than community minded. In addition, the racially divisive overtones that dot this story come at a time when our focus should be on healing our historical wounds not adding salt to them.
