Original post made on Sep 27, 2010

Dear Dolores,

Neighborhoods are very curious about the selection and preference process used by Mary Piepho for appointment to what appear to be worthwhile committees and commissions. On several occasions in the past including applications for the CCC-MAC Alamo last year, neighbors never heard from district 3, the county or were their names listed as applicants. In some cases the applications were delivered in person to district 3 Danville offices with no acknowledgment of the process that would be used in selection and no further response.

Exactly who does Mary Piepho want to apply?

Your journalism is needed.

Wouldn't the right person to ask be Mary Piepho?

What will you and your flock do when Mary Piepho is gone, Hal? Don't be a coward, answer an honest question.

Dear Dolores,

First, we must acknowledge that Don Flint, a Delta region neighborhood participant, has not commented in this exchange (Google courtesy).

As you confidentially know I have associates in global news services. With news service polling results sent this afternoon among district 3 neighborhoods, I was able go gain answers to what district 3 neighborhoods, including me, will celebrate when Mary N. Piepho is no longer part of district 3 aggregated politics.

It seems at present Mary N. Piepho has an 18% approval rating among eligible district 3 voters according to news services sponsored polling. As a result, a majority of voters look forward to electing a representative as district 3 supervisor that works to our will and interests. There are exceptional candidates, including Candace Andersen, that deserve the right to serve our district 3 communities and neighborhoods.

Most neighbors invite you to start now with a Diablo Views that asks, "What's next" for our elected and, sadly, appointed officials in our region and corridor. As usual your journalism is needed.

Let us not be distracted from the purpose of this exchange. We are asking Ms. Piepho and staff for their selection process and criteria in choosing appointees to commissions and committees. Since it is personal and subjective, neighbors deserve an answer from their representative, Ms. Piepho, on how they might qualify for service on worthwhile and important advisory commissions and committees.

It does seem to be a simple question,

Don't miss out on the discussion!
