My team and I take great pride in providing outstanding service to all constituents of the Third District. In light of recent media coverage related to former personnel, I wish to assure the public that those matters have not impacted my accessibility or responsiveness, nor my determination to provide the best possible representation to the Third District. I have taken the actions necessary to strengthen my team, including hiring Mel Millstein as my Chief of Staff.
Specifically, I am disheartened to see the allegations contained in one former employee’s complaint that was filed with the County on Wednesday. The claim contains many inaccuracies. I have wanted to respect the privacy of these former employees. However, should this matter advance further, I am confident the inaccuracies will be proven for what they are. As the allegations currently present a threat of litigation to the county, I cannot discuss them further at this time.
I appreciate your confidence in me and not automatically jumping to conclusions before the facts are known. As I have said throughout my tenure, please contact my office if ever I may be of service to you.
