In response to Michelle Durand's article "Supervisor changes mind, decides to take pay,” in the Dec. 27 edition of the Daily Journal, Supervisor Don Horsley broke his election promise and couldn't care less. That title is very misleading and here is why, if elected he would not accept the salary and all benefits including health. He also said, "You really have to lead by example, and I think that's the example I want to set, the tone I want to set for this election.” Don Horsley was the only candidate out of five who made such a promise. Nobody asked him to make it, and none of the remaining four candidates including myself offered to match such a promise.
Now we find out 45 days after the fact that he has broken this promise. He doesn't bother bringing it to the public's attention in advance of this change, he just makes the change because he knows there is nothing you or I can do about it.
