They Were NOT Anonymous

They told you their stories. You ignored them. They told me their stories. You covered for him. They took their stories public. You attacked them. Even so, they rallied again, more united than ever, until the truth could no longer be contained.

No, they were not a handful of anonymous, disgruntled employees. They were over 70 honorable men and women who, for years, tried to do the right thing, day in and day out, under oppressive and hostile circumstances.

If you are one of the 14 so-called “public officials” that looked the other way,  discredited them or sicced your wolf mutts on them when they came to you for help, shame on you. You are just as culpable as he is.

But you know what? No matter how poorly you treated them, I guarantee that when the day comes that you need their help, they will show up and they will do their job without hesitation.

They will  protect and serve – even those least deserving.  Because that’s what they do and that’s who they are.

Unlike you. In. Every. Possible. Way.

  1. There are a lot of people in this town who owe you an apology. We miss you on city council and the checks and balances that you provided. . I would have loved to read your comments about the three quarters of a million dollars it is costing to rehang the bell.

  2. We need you back!! City employees knew they could count on you to speak truth and have their backs! We love you Trina! So glad Akagi is leaving!
