While I would not normally respond to an attack letter to the editor, I felt I needed to respond to false statements in a letter that was published last week, specifically on the city email system ("Think before voting for Brozosky," Letters, Sept. 5, page 8).
Two years ago, it was discovered that the way the city set up my email access, when I viewed an email from my home computer, the email server at the city deleted its copy of it. The email was deleted through no action of mine except for the act of reading the email. When this problem was observed, I was asked if I could release city emails that resided on my personal computer. I released the emails on my personal computer although the newspaper that asked for this information never reported that I had done so. It was unfortunate that the city did not have an email archive system at the time but they have since fixed this problem.
I ask that the Pleasanton Weekly, which is a member of the Pleasanton Community of Character Coalition, not be an accessory to personal attacks (in this case a former campaign volunteer) or spreading false information. All candidates have signed a code of ethics against this type of behavior. The Weekly should help facilitate this. While people will disagree on the issues or leadership style, the people who are in office, or running for office, are doing so to serve in the community.
