With regard to Morro Bay Councilman Matt Makowetski’s eye infection and request for a leave of absence, we all wish Matt well ("Councilman given leave of absence,” Sept. 10). That being said, Councilman Noah Smukler’s statement that he views someone who is infected while surfing or spearfishing as a worker’s compensation matter shows how little he knows about legal matters.
Matt wasn’t injured on the job. Was the city attorney in the room when he made this statement? If so, that’s a scary situation for the taxpayers of Mhttp://www.sanluisobispo.com/2015/09/09/3798705/matt-makowetski-morro-bay-infection.html">orro Bay.
