Sarah Liz Uyehara in her Letter to the editor of May 7th has put into words exactly what I think and feel about our 5th District Supervisor. Of all of the news articles and letters to the editor I have read on this topic, Ms. Uyehara's letter has me jumping for joy!
I will applaud any person who is taking the steps to become healthy by confronting their addiction and by making decisions every day in a most brave and often difficult fashion to stop imbibing.
I have siblings who are alcoholic and a father who was alcoholic. I am thrilled that Mr. Carrillo is on the road to recovery . I wish him well, especially considering the onslaught of reprimands and demands he is meeting at every turn.
I am not in denial of his absurd and demeaning actions under the influence and neither is he.
I am also not making light of what happened and the people that were on the receiving end of his bad behavior. I have made many hurtful mistakes too.
Stay in office, Efren. Do what you must to stay sober and in 5 or 10 years from now when you have effected considerable change in your life, this judgmental brouhaha will be behind you. Know that some of your constituents are proud of you and want you to stay in office.
I am 100% behind you in this difficult and challenging time.
