Green Task Farce

Dear Editor:I read with amusement the articles on the Green Task Force appointments, and Mr. Elsherif's letter to the editor (The Downey Patriot, 5/1/09). I am not surprised that the political hacks and drooling hangers-on were appointed, but I am surprised that they couldn't find a seat for the spelling-challenged applicant. The fact that an electrical contractor (Bob Ciatti of Efficient Lighting & Electric) is considered "the most qualified of the bunch" is ridiculous, and shows that the council has no clue, as usual. It is unfortunate that recommendations of this "task farce" will find willing support from the idiots on the council who appointed them, whether these recommendations make any scientific sense or not. And without the participation of evidently qualified individuals such as Mr. Elsherif, Mr. Eric Olson, or Mr. Harold Tseklenis, I doubt there will be any sense whatsoever. - Thomas D. Smith, Downey
