Traci Whelan: Erika Deserves Better Than Gossip

Traci Whelan: I am so glad Erika has left the county, because she deserves to get away from the gossip hordes and the criticism. I would like to see one of you put up with all that she has. You don’t even use your real names and I would like to know if County Worker Bee or Show me could deal with all the innuendo and out right attacks on their intgerity. I have known Erikda for over 10 years and without a doubt she is one of the most true and genuine people out there. Her advice to the county is top notch and the same regardless of what her own public interest may be. As to pay outs and all the rest of that….ICRIMP isn’t going to approve a payout if it isn’t warranted. Regardless, my point is this if you have a problem wit someone why not address them in public where they can reply instead of smearing them in a blog. I am using my name, even though I know it opens me up to your scorn and opinions b/c I think that is what should be done. Shame on you for all your speculative remarks and smears and hiding behind anonymity.

Traci: I applaud you for sticking by a friend in need. I don’t know Erika at all. But I do know the nature of the blogosphere. It can be brutal. I receive my share of slings and arrows, sometimes in this blog but more often in copycat ones. It goes with the territory. Erika will survive because she’s strong (from what little I know of her).
