“In the interests of harmony I decided we’ll just take it off,” said Kline spokesman Brian Burgess, who maintains the taxpayer-funded site for the district attorney’s office. “But I won’t rule out putting something there again.
“Going forward,” Burgess said, “I will try to be a little more sensitive to differing points of view. I’m going to try and focus on more news-related stuff.”
Some, including three county commissioners, raised concerns about the use of a government Web site to distribute what could be viewed as political material.
It would probably be better if Burgess’s standard for an official website were stricter than “news-related.” How about focusing on news relating to the official business of the Johnson County DA?
