Brickbat justified

San Luis ObispoJuly 23, 2013 

Congratulations, Tribune, on well-deserved and aimed brickbats to Debbie Peterson.

I think she personifies exactly what is wrong in our economic, environmental and political system today: She took it upon herself to act on behalf of the entire council but failed to first understand their wishes or thinking.

As mayor, she should represent the entire city and council, not just her own opinions.

I honestly believe she should be replaced on the Air Pollution Control District board. Councils work best as a team, and they should always work to protect the local resources and residents they represent.

It seems Mayor Peterson forgot the duties of her position.

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.
