According to Don Amador of the Blue Ribbon Coalition, the District (East Bay Regional Parks District) leaked a copy of the letter sent to them by the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division of California State Parks requesting the removal of the “Tesla” property from The East Bay Parks District’s master plan.
“HQ got a call today from a reporter who wanted my comments on an August 21, 2013 letter from the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division to the District. I told the reporter if he wanted my comments in time for an upcoming article that I would need a copy of the letter. The reporter sent me the letter.
After receiving the letter below from the reporter, I asked myself the question, ”How did this reporter get a copy of the letter since it had only been sent to government officials?” It appears that some official in the District leaked the document to the media or some environmental group in order to generate more controversy.
If the District did leak this letter, I feel it shows a lack of professionalism and good taste. Rather than reflecting well on the District, this communication appears to show discord and a lack of respect for the public and the law.”
How far will The District go get their hands on our park? Don’t forget to check out Don’s blog. He has a link to the letter. It is right on.
