Coonerty Appointee Bullies County Health Officer
by Santa Cruz News Network
Damon Bruder, Santa Cruz County Supervisor Ryan Coonerty's appointee to the County's Syringe Services Program (SSP) Advisory Commission, has made harassing and bullying statements on social media directed at Rachel McCullough-Sanden, an Epidemiologist and HIV Surveillance Coordinator at the County Health Services Agency (HSA). On February 14, a disparaging screen capture of McCullough-Sanden taken from video of a Board of Supervisors meeting was posted to the Santa Cruz, CA: Keepin' It Real Facebook page. The photo was featured on the blog along with criticism of the County Health Department for being late in posting the monthly SSP report to the County's website. Commissioner Bruder commented on the photo, saying: "Maybe the daft woman in the photo was removed/demoted? 🤷♂️ A couple late reports would almost be an acceptable trade-off, if that were the case..." The February 14 comment wasn't the first time Damon Bruder has made bullying comments aimed at McCullough-Sanden on the blog; he and his domestic (and political) partner Paige Concannon made harassing comments about the County Health Officer in December as well.
