Mayor Anthony Silva sent this memo out Wednesday, the night before a Boys & Girls Club board meeting. It’s worth reading.
(We removed the personal email addresses of board members before publishing it out of respect for their privacy. Coach Silva’s AOL address remains untouched, because he has in the past used that for business.)
When reached by phone Friday, Silva said that he had only one comment for the story:
“Leave me the (expletive) alone,” Silva said. “That’s the only quote you get from me.”
On his Facebook page, Silva posted a 475-word response to all the stories about him this weekend in The Record. The City Council seeks to punish him and has forwarded his behavior to the civil grand jury, accusing him of a Brown Act violation. Silva also backs an anti-drug program created by the Church of Scientology, causing some controversy.
