Friday, Jan. 12, 2007 | My place of employment has nothing to do with the fact that Ian Trowbridge is a hypocrite and a conspiracy theorist, which is what my original letter was addressing. I did not, and will not, take issue with his appeal of the Navy Broadway Complex. Haven’t read his appeal and really don’t care to. The fact is he makes wild accusations of bribery and undue influence against people who have been neither charged nor convicted of a crime. While at the same time he contributes money to campaigns, but doesn’t consider himself subject to the same scrutiny of those he accuses.
This is my city too. I live here. I raise my family here. And I have concerns about our city’s prosperity, its government, elected officials and those people who claim to be looking out for the public good. I have had those same concerns long before I worked for McMillin, and I will have them long after.
Ian Trowbridge does not own ethics. He does not own morality. And just because he calls himself a watchdog and claims that everyone who disagrees with him is corrupt, doesn’t mean he knows what he’s talking about or that his motives are altruistic.
