A higher purpose

Paso RoblesJanuary 17, 2013 

Holy partisan gridlock, Batman! Is the habit of rabid and unending zerosum-gamesmanship that seems to have subverted Congress at the federal level now going to blight our own Board of Supervisors? From the recent letters supporting Debbie Arnold’s first official movement (to block Supervisor Gibson’s chairship), especially Mr. Richard Placak’s in a recent edition of The Tribune (Jan. 13), I worry that it will.

We can only hope Supervisor Arnold comprehends that her constituency elected her to a higher purpose than unremitting confrontation of two particular colleagues, and that she acts accordingly.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
