Letter of the Day: Risking gridlock

  • Supervisor Efren Carrillo conferences with his attorney's Chris Andrian and Jane Gaskell after the jury came back with 11-1 not guilty verdict during Carrillo's peeking trial, Monday April 28, 2014, in Sonoma County Superior Court. (Kent Porter / Press Democrat) 2014

<b>Risking gridlock</b>

EDITOR: Those who call for Supervisor Efren Carrillo's resignation should think twice about what they ask. Will Sonoma County government and 5th District constituents really be better served by a vacancy while the governor dithers in choosing a successor who will be immediately thrust into an intensely political election campaign while getting on the job training?

Instead of potential county gridlock with a series of 2-2 votes, we might be better served by putting away the hatchets, considering some compassion and letting a sober and repentant Carrillo finish out his term and move on.
