Advocate: (verb) Recommend or support something
(noun) Somebody giving support.
After reading District 3 Supervisor Bauer’s April 24,2010 letter to the editor ‘In defense of Bill’ I have to say Ms. Bauer needs to practice what she preaches. Some of us June Lake residents who live in Ms. Bauer’s District 3 have long been waiting for her to ‘tune in’ and fight as an advocate for everyone here. Those of us who are not always in tóto with Ms. Bauer’s views or agenda are ignored and/or neglected.
She certainly puts a lot of energy into advocating Mr. Sauser, but what she has written is not entirely correct when she states ‘(He)…helped to achieve compromise in last year’s bipartisan Wilderness Bill.’ I attended both Lee Vining and Bishop Wilderness Bill Board of Supervisors’ meetings. My recollection is Mr. Sauser was not on board for compromise. As a matter of fact after reading the minutes from the Lee Vining meeting, which are online for all the public to read, Mr. Sausser (Sauser) is listed as a speaker who ‘did not support the compromise.’
Unseemly: (adj.) Not in good taste – contrary to accepted standards of good taste or appropriate behavior
adv.) In an unseemly manner; In an improper or inappropriate manner
Supervisor Bauer’s position as a public Advocate and Campaign Treasurer for Bill Sauser, to me, is inappropriate and unbecoming an elected official. Unseemly!
Attempting to ‘stack the deck’ a little bit higher for more control on the Board Ms. Bauer? How about taking more initiative to do the work you should be doing in your own district.
