Letters to the editor
Letters to the editor from readers of The Madera Tribune newspaper.
The Madera County Board of Supervisors, although representing five distinct “fiefdoms,” must eventually function as a cohesive team to avoid stagnation and reversal of fortune.
I know Michael Keitz and worked with him in his capacity as Madera County district attorney during my tenure as Madera County’s county administrative officer from September 2009 through May 2010.
I have personally known Ed McIntyre for the past 30 years, have known his wife, Gail, my whole life, and taught their son David in both kindergarten and 1st grade at John Adams School.
A recent letter to the editor, in reference to sheriff candidates, Chief Jay Varney and Undersheriff Michael Salvador deserves clarification.
Running the office of district attorney of any county is not sitting in a courtroom presenting evidence to get a conviction. The hard part is putting a team together to do that job at the highest level.
This is in response to Supervisor Tom Wheeler’s recent letter to the editor.
