MCAO Responds to County Manager Smith's Bizarre Request

From the MCAO:

Good afternoon

County Manager David Smith is demanding disclosure of any communication between several employees at the County Attorney’s Office and a number of media outlets including , The Arizona Republic, the East Valley Tribune, The New Times, several conservative web sites “or any other internet site or address.” A letter sent to a number of County Attorney employees also demands details of communications that happened during non work hours using personal computers. A copy of the letter is attached (above).

The move comes days after the Board of Supervisors stalled a criminal probe of county government by refusing to hire outside prosecutors while at the same time demanding that the County Attorney ’s Office not prosecute potential cases.

Among those receiving the letter is the Public Information Officer for the County Attorney ’s Office, whose job it is to communicate with the media.
Mike Scerbo and Barnett Lotstein are available for comment

Also available for comment are two conservative bloggers targeted by county management.

  1. That County Manager Smith is giving MCAO an ethics lesson is nothing short of hilarious. Besides, didn't the County Managers fire MCAO? If so, they are not MCAO's clients. Our county managers are an embarassment.
