Shame on Rob Browning for not revealing, in his letter to the Planet (2/7/02), that he is City Councilmember Linda Maio’s husband.
He is high in his praise for Maio and mean-spirited in his criticism of those who voted differently, yet he never fesses up to being Maio’s husband.
My wife, councilmember Betty Olds and her colleague Councilmember Polly Armstrong received several phone calls and e-mails urging them to vote against spending more than half a million dollars of taxpayer’s money to replace the communication tower.
Their votes against further expenditures on the tower represented the opinions of their constituents who elected them to office.
Olds and Armstrong agree that public money would be better spent to help people in need with housing and services.
Rob Browning should have the decency to identify himself as Maio’s husband when he sings her virtues in the press. Not to do so is cowardly and deceitful to the public.
