Pesky questions

San Luis ObispoMay 30, 2014 

Other than the meaningless bureaucratese of “management style,” there has been no explanation as to why the great majority of the DA’s staff won’t support Tim Covello.

We need some specifics on exactly what Mr. Covello has done to so alienate the staff that they don’t want to work for him, which should be the end of the matter. How could we possibly elect someone nobody wants to work for? And how could The Tribune ignore such a monumental factor in endorsing him, after failing to do the digging necessary to give us the answer?

Except, except, there’s that pesky question about why Dan Dow took contributions from the defense attorney on the sex case. As per “management style,” saying it wasn’t “technically illegal” doesn’t come close to cutting it. Mr. Dow needs to answer the same question Jay Leno asked Hugh Grant: “What were you thinking?”

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.
