EAST SIDE / WEST SIDE
SUMMERS and CIPRIANI
Both Betsy Summers and Eileen Cipriani have been public servants in ways few people know.
Eileen Cipriani has worked for no salary and has written grants without charging her hometown on the west side.
Cipriani has displayed unusual courage as a public servant. No one knows better than me the steep uphill battle that awaits one who accuses police and/or public officials and/or public contractors with corruption.
First they ignore you... then they call you nuts... then they lie... then they intimidate you... then they attack you or assign bogus charges... then you win (if you made it this far).
Like me, Eileen Cipriani has survived such a gauntlet. When two police officers in West Wyoming were stealing... Cipriani took on the challenge of fighting corruption.
And she won. I had not known this about her... and now I am glad I did. We need more Eileen Ciprianis... and Betsy Summers... and other brave warriors who aren't afraid to take on corruption.
