08/28/03  A citizen copied us the following response she got from Fantroy's Aide:

J:  Can you believe the e-mail response I received from Mary Hasan, assistant to council member James Fantroy?  I was shocked to receive this e-mail.  Her analogy was so off base.  Racism will never die.  If poor performance is the issue  for an African-American,  they deny it and claim racism.   

The same person who hired Bolton four years later fired Bolton.  If racism is the issue, why did Benavides hire Bolton as Chief over other top notch officials at the time? 

But still, I am shocked by Hasan's e-mail.  She is a city employee.

My comment on Web Page:

COMMENTS:  based on your comment today:

"We will not sit back and let this continue," said Council member James Fantroy. "This is a slap in our face like it's never been slapped before. We won't put up with this any more, this is not the 1950s." -

I would like to know if Bolton was white or hispanic or asian, if you would say the same thing.  I can not understand why Blacks feel that it is racism, when performance is very obvious!!!!

Probably because when a hispanic kid was in a police car and the police played Russian roulette and killed the child, the responsibility did not lie with the chief.  There has been no other chief in the history of the city that has been micromanaged by the news media.  I guess that is why my councilman thinks that race has something to do with it.

 

                                        

    





                            

 

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
