Re: “RHA scandal scoreboard: everyone loses

'Rob Warren of the benefit of the doubt'?

Maybe if the Mayor issued any kind of transparent and substantive statement a reasonable person could give her the benefit of the doubt. Until that happens one can only form an opinion based on the facts at hand and those are that the Mayor's self-appointed board terminated an employee with a long term contract without cause or explanation and immediately appointed a person closely aligned with the Mayor but completely lacking any qualifications for the position. Then lied about it. All of this could cost taxpayers close to $1 million.

I don't have a lot of love for appointees to important public positions that have zero qualifications - it doesn't matter who it is.

And I think it's telling that the Mayor did not ask for the resignation of Moses, who could not refuse but did ask for McFadden's, who could. Thinly veiled political cover as the article points out.

The entire affair is wrapped in corruption, incompetence, amateurism, half-truths and lies.

I hope this isn't what the public can expect from this administration.

Re: “[UPDATED] Legality of McFadden's appointment to RHA questioned

Wow, just wow.

Mayor Warren, is it too much to ask to appoint someone that can legally hold the job and actually has experience with federal housing regulations and multi-million dollar budgets?

The disadvantaged in this community are more important than playing politics. Put an end to this nonsense now and re-appoint Castro or at least someone that is actually qualified.

You're doing a disservice to this community and embarrassing the office and the city, please stop.
