“Ins and Outs,” Monterey County Weekly – October 22, 2022
The latest reporting on the disgraced Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force incident was so slanted and continued to minimize this incident (“Pacific Grove diversity task force chair and council candidate apologizes for tweet,” posted Oct. 12).
To add insult to injury, this task force and reporter divert the attention from this inappropriate faux pas of [task force chair and P.G. City Council candidate] Tina Rau’s comments and starts listing what this unnecessary committee has done, like this has anything to do with the issue of a DEI lead making disparaging remarks and not having the integrity to step down!!
Listen, in the real world there’s consequences for inappropriate behavior and yes, we all make mistakes and we all deserve forgiveness, so yes, we can forgive Ms. Rau’s unfortunate tweets and move on. However the consequence of that mistake [should be] not staying on the DEI task force.
