At OpenCDA.com, the inmates are in a lather re: transparency, believing that Mayor Sandi Bloem's administration is withholding info re: the health of one of the City Council members. Intones one of them: "Elected officials are not entitled to certain levels of privacy expected from the general public. For example, if an elected official were to become ill, I believe it’s the government’s duty to inform the people." Then, keyboard commando Dan Gookin speculates in error that City Hall has requested that the media sit on any info re: sick officials. And his fellow commenters in the echo chamber attack the individual council person who is suppose to be sick as "a dictator" and "an appalling human being." Such caring people under that particular cyber rock. I have made a call re: this situation. And will provide info when I get it. Meanwhile, you can read the venom re: this subject on OpenCDA.com here.
Question: Is the ill health of elected officials at the local level a concern that should be made public?
