Bring accountability back. As strange as this may sound, eliminate the rubber stamp that supervisors use when deciding issues in other supervisors districts. That rubber stamp has put too much power in the hands of easily corrupted individuals.

The Political unrest in District III is the direct result of incompetent and corrupt leadership. 2012 campaigns will unfold with blame on others to misdirect attention from the real problem. The voters will need to abolish corruption via the cast of ballots to maintain an orderly recovery from nepotism. It will be time to change these last years of inequities to positive community unification.

I totally agree with the editorial in the CC Times excoriating Mary and David Piepho for their shameless effort at manipulating the system for their gain in a most unethical manner. These two are out for themselves and themselves only, I will relish the chance to support a campaign against Mary Piepho when the time comes.

Dear Dolores,

Let me make your readers aware that Contra Costa politics is taking special interest in commentary on the actions and execution by CCC-BOS. The result is significant retaliation against known opponents of nepotism and misuse of funds. Since nepotism and misuse of funds are impacted by state-level statutes and laws impacting counties, CCC-BOS supporters are specifically interested in disarming any citizens' opposition.

May I suggest in this instance a pseudonym is very good defense as further comments are made on this subject.
