Feedback: Management tyle revealed

In your April 19 editorial you spoke of mutual respect and learning to get along for the benefit of the public. I think it’s a bit late for Mr. Selby to display these qualities. The man has shown a total lack of loyalty and absolutely no respect for the job or the office.

Try to remember that he was appointed to his position of trust and responsibility by a man elected to the office by the people. By accepting the appointed position of chief criminal deputy, Mr. Selby agreed to act as a second in command of the prosecuting attorney’s office and to assist Mr. Banks in running the office in a professional, knowledgeable and ethical manner. Mr. Selby is quick to criticize yet makes no mention of any attempts to remedy his perception of a bad situation.

I believe Mr. Selby has done us all a favor by making his management style very clear. He intends to be everyone’s friend and then blame them for his failings in an ugly and public manner when he feels things have gone wrong.
