Perhaps Janet Wolf can explain why she allows county staff - specifically Terri Maus Nisich, assistant CEO with no public portfolio, make decisions about executive management in county departments. Why did she and the Board let Ms. Nisich hire someone with a questionable background to be interim parks director and then make no public announcement about the appointment? You can't have it both ways, Ms. Wolf, delegating tasks that are unpleasant or controversial and then complain that staff are making all the decisions. And on a second point, why do we need an Assistant CEO like Ms. Nisich after she was a failure at running the parks dep't and has no discernible skills (HR, budget, etc.) Why have her appointment (by Mike Brown) duties, salary, and performance received no scrutiny?

Interestingly, Janet Wolf pointed out that the plan turned down by the Coastal Commission also called for removal of the unpermitted rocks, and said that most of those against Goleta Beach 2.0 had been in favor of the last plan.

These debates were all a matter of public record a few years ago. Where were Nick and the Independent then? Why didn't you lead the charge against the pool when the supervisors were discussing and approving it?

This is one of the most biased pieces I have read in the Independent, and that's saying something. Is it an opinion piece or a news article? The author does not say that she is a UCSB student, indicating a possible conflict of interest, nor does she mention any attempt to contact any member of the UCSB administration for comment. The piece is nothing but a reiteration of the points made by the people who organized the event. How is that good journalism?
