Paper should have focused on Hoffberg’s achievements at VCA

The Beachcomber appears to be wallowing in prurient interest in an incident that served as only a part of the motivation for the resignation of Kevin Hoffberg from VCA. Hoffberg indicated that several factors contributed to his decision: family health issues, his own health, his overwork and exhaustion, issues with ailing friends.

In the time Hoffberg served on the board and as executive director, he was known by everyone for his kindness, caring and generosity to anyone associated with VCA. The editorial assumes that The Beachcomber has a right to the details of this “incident” and the internal workings of VCA. I dispute that, and I believe the enormous change and strong relations he brought to VCA should have been where the focus was concentrated.
