Letters to the Editor, March 6 - 8

Last week the road department denied my claim also!

Here’s its loophole – if no one has reported the cracked or open pothole, then they are not responsible! Wait a minute.

There are no signs up anywhere that say: report a dangerous pothole.

Everyone I’ve talked to – from the veterans associations, Memorial Day committee members, Sonoma Valley Community Church members, Veterans Cemetery committee members, Sonoma Market employees, Whole Foods employees, Safeway employees and people who were born here, raised here and still live here since the early 1950s – have never heard or read that a person should be reporting a dangerous pothole.

Wait another minute.

This is Sonoma, a small town that claims to be helpful to the people who live here. I have lived here over 10 years and have made many contributions as a volunteer in this town.

Why was I not informed about the county road department’s loophole?

Who can reverse its decision and reimburse me for my bills?

Susan Gorin wrote me that she does not have the power to do this.

Who does? I am not a retired millionaire living out the good life here. I was planning on moving to St. Petersburg, Florida where I am enrolled in a college because Baby Boomers have to keep working somehow in the midst of the takeover by computer tech jobs outnumbering our skill sets. I had my budget for moving in December and now I am stuck in Sonoma.

Reimburse me, County road department, because this is not my fault!

I think these kind of loopholes may be against the law as the public is not informed by any road sign especially in front of an elementary school.
