Dan Gookin filed this comment in the SR.com online thread under my Huckleberries column (re: Huckleberries: Councilman mighty testy over early news report/DFO): If Oliveria honestly wanted to report about me, he would have discovered that I apologized to Ms. Gabriel less than an hour after the email was sent. I drove to City Hall and explained that the email was inappropriate and disrespectful. Ms. Gabriel acknowledged my apology, but insisted that I had every right to be “pissed.” Even so, I apologized an additional two times. Oliveria’s pro-status-quo agenda in Coeur d’Alene is well-known. He consistently derides me as a lesser member of the City Council, a “Neanderthal,” and with other immature, name-calling attacks. It is obvious to me and many others that he is actively promoting only one side of City Government in Coeur d’Alene. Caveat lector.
DFO: H/T to Green Libertarian for pointing this out to me in the comments section. I find this comment by Councilman Gookin odd because Gookin interacted with Huckleberries Online and me Friday afternoon, saying nothing about an apology. I appreciate that he did apologize to City Administrator Wendy Gabriel for his nasty email. He was completely out of order in slamming City Administrator Wendy Gabriel the way he did. BTW, you notice how Dan's trying to make this about me rather than his own action?
