Having worked for Richard Winnie when he was City Attorney for Oakland, I, and many of those who also worked under him, will not mourn his passing. He was appointed for partisan political reasons, was not to be trusted, was anti-employee union, and was disliked by many of us.

No matter what you thought of Mr Winnie, your lack of respect for him now is sad.
None of it matters now does it? He is gone and it would have been nice if you could have shown some respect to those that cared about and loved him.
I did not know him, barely even knew of him, but I send my condolences to those that did.

Scott Haggerty had fond memories of Richard Winnie because they were trapped together in an elevator in Paris, France.
And a county supervisor and a county attorney is in Paris on the taxpayer dime because?
