I have been a longtime supporter of Director Dawson and I will continue support him. He made a mistake that he is obviously already paying for in other arenas of his life, and he’s been humble and apologetic both publicly and to those of us who’ve spoken to him directly. He’s still a good director, and the numerous positive things he’s done for Discovery Bay haven’t been erased.
This whole recall hullabaloo is just another attack by the same group of people always involved in the local drama-of-the-moment against someone who doesn’t share their philosophy. You should think long and hard before signing any petition, since a recall election will cost our community $50,000 it clearly doesn’t have – didn’t we just have a rate increase? Now I hear that the people behind this petition will be invading our holiday parade with banners and messages of hate.
I hope this is only a small-town rumor, and that no one would do something in such poor taste to disrespect our holiday celebration – and the reason for the season!
