No! Not Ever!
We understand that there may be a special circumstance which would make it reasonable to tell less than the truth, however, reasonable does not mean right, nor does it make it right.
Our County Executive John Stoffa has been less that truthful on more than one occasion INTENTIONALLY, which is a clear indicator that he cannot be trusted. And people who cannot be trusted shouldn't be in office. His deceptions were initially aimed at the taxpayers, and then at County Council. And he deceived both. It's time to deal with this matter.
This is not about creating chaos on County Council, but about correcting injustices. County Council may not want to deal with this matter, who would? But out on our behalf they must.
We recall perfectly when we attended campaign meetings where Councilman Scott Parsons told us he would bring humility and justice back to Norco. We Believed and trusted him to do so, so we voted him into office.
We recall perfectly Councilman Bob Werner expressing the same, so we trusted him too, and voted him in as well. And the same is true about Councilman Ken Kraft, and councilman Lamont McClure. The time has come to Act on your words.
We implore County Council to deal with this matter at the very earliest opportunity possible. Please fix the problem. We ask you to do so because we want to clear this matter up, and we want to continue to trust you.
But please understand that if you fail to handle this very serious matter within a reasonable time frame, then we will have to ask: how exactly can we to trust you?
It will appear to us that you have become part of John Stoffa's click. And we don't want to believe that is the case. So please, demonstrate to your electors that you can be trusted...Deal with this problem - fix it.
