Spring is in the air…ah… Warm breezes blowing, birds chirping, flowers blooming. I was born and raised in the South Bronx section of New York City where we had no flowers, birds or trees. I am still, after 4o plus years, moved by the beauty of the Bay Area.
What’s happening in our little corner of the world on this fine day?
I suppose if you still subscribe to the Times you have, once again, read all about the Phil Green FPPC Form 460 issue; which seems to be the Times favorite Pinole political hot potato. I wonder why the person who filed the complaint in the first place has never been named? Is it not fair to name that person, surely they were performing a public service by analyzing everyone’s Form 460, right? So why not identify that person in the articles published? Fair, balanced and comprehensive reporting should dictate that. My sources tell me the person who filed the complaint is Jeff Rubin of the CCOP. Perhaps he did it anonymously.
The professional journalists code of ethics states in part, “The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues.”
Must be a slow news day in Pinole, and it must be a good day to wage war on Phil Green and anyone you don’t have on your side.
