LETTER TO THE EDITOR | How about an apology for not returning calls?

  • Oct 8, 2014 at 2:00PM

Editor, In response to Mrs. Nuñez’s letter of Oct. 1, I am truly surprised by her lack of self-responsibility and tendency to always place blame. Just do the job, will you. Mrs. Nuñez is not responsive to her constituents (us) when in the office or while telecommuting, as she claims. During the first half of the year numerous errors occurred that caused many of us taxpayers to contact Mrs. Nuñez. Mrs. Nuñez amassed about 1,500 calls without bothering to listen to our requests or responding to any of us. There were so many calls in her in-box that the county phone system was put in jeopardy and all calls were deleted as they were detrimental to the system operations. I think we deserve better than this from our treasurer.
