Candidate Walker

Posted By on Fri, Aug 18, 2006 at 8:45 AM

A reader calls for comments (with nothing but kindness in his/her heart, we're sure) on the D-G article today about Bill Walker's pique at getting moved aside from a temporary leadership position on the state Parole Board. He still keeps his $75,000 pay of course. And we note, Bill, that your benefactor, The Huckster, is keeping a healthy distance from you on this dispute.

Our comment would be only that Walker's hubbub in this matter and his lawsuit over treatment of his daughter at Central High (underlying merits of both aside) are not exactly strong building blocks for his announced race for mayor. There IS such a thing as bad publicity and both cases offer some insight into how Walker might conduct himself in a city leadership role.
