LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Grego should not have used city letterhead

Clearly Councilman Bruce Grego is a loose cannon ball, a demagogue roaring while beating dead horses. Mr. Grego thinks he’s a big shot from a little town who can tell the state of Nevada what to do on funding the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.

And because he used the city’s letterhead, the perception is he speaks for the city. If he had wanted to clarify if he was speaking as a private citizen, then he should not have used the letterhead or spoken as an elected official.

And the City Council is brain-dead when allowing the letterhead to be used as it was used. Folly always provides blowback, and Grego carries considerable baggage. He’s the character who lifted $937.50 of city money to hire a private lawyer. The grand jury said it was over the line. Grego has refused to show a written copy of the lease on his law office that’s in Redevelopment Area No. 2.

In short, Grego doesn’t know when to blush. Also, the City Council should ditch its policy on the use of the city’s letterhead before we get another blast from a loud-mouthed demagogue. Often it’s true, the feeling of bigness is one of the sensations of littleness.
