Why did The Union not report on Leipzig’s replacement?

The Aug. 8 story regarding Supervisor Martin’s replacement of Margurite Leipzig, former campaign manager of Rene Antonson, to the Sanitation Commission, neglected to mention even one of the many qualifications of the new commissioner. I think the omission is a sign of very bad reporting.

To set the record straight, Supervisor Martin’s appointee is totally competent to serve on this advisory board. Melody Wilson has a master’s degree in administration; she was supervisor for District 5 prior to her husband Randy’s transfer to Montana. She has served on a government level water quality board and on a community level has been active with the Girl Scouts, lobbying for property rights and a voice for women’s and children’s issues.

Melody and her husband live in Lake Wildwood, where she is a member of the board of directors and has firsthand knowledge of and interest in all matters concerning its residents.

Why was it not important to you to research Ms. Wilson’s background? It seems The Union’s bias is getting in the way of its duty to objectively report the relevant facts.
