Sunday's Letters to the Editor

Aghast at Carrillo

EDITOR: I read with shock, again, about Supervisor Efren Carrillo's poor decision to even think that he would be a welcome committee member at the county's Family Justice Center in Santa Rosa. Hello, we are talking about battered, sexually and emotionally abused women here (“Carrillo told to avoid crisis center,” Thursday).

Then, he has the audacity to say that he “didn't need to be told” that he was not welcome and that “he decided on his own” not to return. This is a man whose ego is still so inflated, who displays sociopathic, addictive behavior in that he places blame on others and credits himself for decisions that others need to make for him to keep others out of harm's way.

This supervisor needs to be fired since he cannot make the right decision to do the right and just thing to step down and to get out of everyone else's way.



Krauthammer fan

EDITOR: I find Charles Krauthammer the only worthwhile read in your paper. I wonder why you are running anyone else (“One-note columnist,” Letters, Tuesday).


Santa Rosa

SAY's 'Dream Center'

EDITOR: If those nameless people who placed the full-page ad in the past two Sunday papers had attended the meeting and tour of Warrack Hospital on Aug. 28, they might not have made inaccurate statements. My tour leader, a Santa Rosa police officer, said that there had never been any complaints about Social Advocates for Youth's Tamayo House on Yulupa Avenue.

The Dream Center will be a program for men and women, too. It will not be a “walk in homeless shelter”; residents will pay affordable rent. Prospective residents would endure a rigorous application process and must be accepted to live there, so they wouldl have jobs as well as work onsite. As a result, they would not be “volatile, troubled or with criminal records.” There wouldl be 24-hour supervision as well as SAY's offices being relocated there.
