A figment of Bill Center’s imagination

By From page A5 | June 02, 2014

Mr. Garon voices support for Penn for District 4 Supervisor based on his “insight” into the broadband needs of the community. Penn seems to be a figment of his own (and Bill Center’s) imagination.
The Regulatory Reform Subcommittee earmarked the need for broadband early on in its process. Penn sat in on meetings for a short time while, I note, Mike Ranalli attended regularly for years — finally stepping in as chairman. He was asked to be chair based on his fair-minded, thoughtful and even-tempered handling of diverse group of “A” personalities. He served selflessly for years while Penn came in to gain background then left to run for office.
A review of Penn’s background, available in online research, paints a different “Penn” than the public Penn being sold as leadership material. Can’t underestimate the power of the ego.
