Outraged by Lawsuit

By Eileen Barker, Marin Independent Journal

Does anyone else feel outraged that our Board of Supervisors has just authorized millions of dollars of our public funds to be spent on a lawsuit, at the same time as it is cutting funds from our schools and other vital services?

Folks, it's 2010.

There are better ways to resolve conflict over the county's troubled fiscal software program at a fraction of the cost of litigation. How about hiring a conflict resolution expert to help find a solution to the computer fiasco?

War is not the answer.
