Re: your April 21 article, â€śMikels says stories of Tucson home not trueâ€?:
OK, so letâ€™s give Ventura County Supervisor Judy Mikels the benefit of the doubt and assume that maybe our supervisor doesnâ€™t live in Tucson half her life. Then what is her excuse for missing 70 percent of the meetings she's getting paid to attend?
Is Mikels spending too much time on all these â€śregionalâ€? committees that just happen to meet weekends in Tucson and Phoenix? Is too much of her time taken up freelancing as an Arizona-based housing developer? Or is it simply that the Queen Bee of the Board of Supervisors is too lazy to do her job?
Whatever the excuse, the good people of this wonderful county have no patience for a part-time supervisor who takes our hard-earned money and spends it in Tucson. If you or I missed half as much time at work as our supervisor, we'd be fired after the first week. Apparently our Queen Bee doesn't need to worry about her job.
I hope the supervisor still feels that way after June 6, when we all vote to remove that condescending smile and send her packing to Tucson.
