Delgadillo needs to provide answers

June 14, 2007

Re "City atty.'s wife drove with license suspended," June 9

Talk about special treatment. City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo's wife seems to be on a par with Paris Hilton. Michelle Delgadillo had an accident, no insurance (how can you register a vehicle without proof of insurance?) and subsequently drove on the suspended license. The fact that she had "regrets" and "takes full responsibility for her mistake" doesn't cut the mustard. Add to that the fact that she did not file an accident report and you have a totally irresponsible person. And her husband was supposedly outraged by Hilton's early release? This is a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Re "City atty. mum on driver in '04 crash," June 12

For Rocky Delgadillo to refuse to provide information regarding the accident involving his city-issued vehicle is ludicrous. It's too much of a coincidence that his wife was cited for an accident around the time his vehicle was damaged, and for her to have been driving with a suspended license. I thought lawyers should at least know certain basics of the law. He obviously does not. We as taxpayers should demand answers, for we pay him.

Re "A rocky week for the city attorney," column, and "Delgadillo fined $11,450 for 30 counts of campaign finance law violations," June 13

The recent conduct of City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo as detailed in Steve Lopez's column regarding the damage to a city-owned SUV that may have been driven by his wife (an improper use of city property) and the lack of an accident report appear to me to be unethical conduct by a member of the State Bar of California. Further, The Times' report on the same day that Delgadillo was fined $11,450 for 30 counts of campaign finance law violations is further evidence of his possible unethical conduct. As a fellow attorney held to the same high standards of ethics as Delgadillo, I am disturbed by his conduct in these matters and feel that he may have breached the code of professional conduct applicable to California attorneys.
