It's interesting to see how certain housing commissioners behave at public meetings, especially when three City Council members are present and one is the mayor.
I can't help but recall an old saying, "When the cat's away, the mice will play." That is exactly what happened at the last housing board meeting. Since no council members were present Mr. Romo violated the rights of residents, banging his gavel three times and telling the Resident Council he had heard enough and left them standing at the podium, showing his lack of professionalism and leadership.
Now you have Commissioner Rodriguez who feels her reputation has been "tainted." Well, Mrs. Rodriguez, that might be the price you have to pay when you decided to take public office. When you wrote the ad on behalf of the Housing Commissioners, the thought must have crossed your mind that the Resident Council would respond. Perhaps you are correct when you stated the word corruption should have not been used. Instead of using "corruption" in the article placed by the residents the word should have been "corruptionist," since the meaning of the word was more proper when it is used or "refers to someone who practices or defends corruption, especially in politics," as it is defined in the Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary.
