Dividing a community

Virginia Moran

While the circumstances that prompted Drew Bedwell to step down are truly unfortunate for anyone, I find it baffling that anything coming near accolades are being delivered to Mr. Bedwell for creation of his property rights group (“‘Gold miner’ leaves mark on county,” editorial, May 20).

As far as I could tell, this was an organization that used intimidation tactics during what was a legitimate democratic process and it was based on misinformation and reactivity.

I don’t consider this an accomplishment to be proud of. The Board of Supervisors are public servants accountable to the public, and to intentionally divide a community is not serving the public’s best interest.
