Supervisor Efren Carrillo: Please Resign Now

      Sonoma County, CA

We, the undersigned, seek to restore respect and dignity to the Board of Supervisors and the 5th Supervisorial District of Sonoma County. It is imperative that Supervisor Efren Carrillo, having been arrested twice in less than a year, resign from office immediately.

His most recent arrest demonstrates that Mr. Carrillo cannot avoid legal trouble. We therefore ask that he no longer represent the 5th District as a member of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. We strongly believe he is incapable of governing and should instead focus on resolving his personal issues.

For the future of Sonoma County and the office he currently holds, we ask that he do the honorable thing at this time and resign from public office.

To:
Efren Carrillo, Supervisor, 5th District, Sonoma County
David Rabbitt, Supervisor, 2nd District, Sonoma County
Shirlee Zane, Supervisor, 3rd District, Sonoma County
Susan Gorin, Supervisor, 1st District, Sonoma County
Mike McGuire, Supervisor, 4th District, Sonoma County
Dear Efren Carrillo (cc Board of Supervisors)

Please resign now so that you may focus on resolving your personal issues – without compromising the integrity of the office of Supervisor for the 5th District of Sonoma County.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Political allies, critics react to Carrillo verdict

      A jury may have acquitted Efren Carrillo of criminal wrongdoing Monday, but some members of the public and his colleagues on the Board of Supervisors may not be so forgiving. The account that emerged over three days of testimony apparently convinced 12 Sonoma County residents that the 5th District supervisor didn't attempt to peek into the home of his neighbor while wearing only his socks and underwear.

      PD Editorial: Efren Carrillo should step down

      Since he appeared on the political scene seeking to represent the 5th District on the Board of Supervisors in 2008, this newspaper has supported Efren Carrillo. We recommended him among the seven candidates in that race, and we endorsed him again when he ran for re-election in 2012, praising him as having "served with distinction."

      Attorney: Efren Carrillo peeking case headed for trial

      Embattled Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo will go to trial rather than seek a plea bargain in his misdemeanor peeking case, in part to dispel any notion that he is receiving special treatment as an elected official, his lawyer said Tuesday. "Whatever settlement he might make would be looked upon as a backdoor deal," attorney Chris Andrian said.

      GULLIXSON: In brief, it doesn't look good for Efren Carrillo

      When Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo was arrested following a San Diego donnybrook last year, many of us were willing to cut him some slack. Why? Because there was a chivalrous aspect to it all. At least that was the narrative.
