Elected pay chopped

By From page A5 | December 02, 2013

EDITOR:

My, my, after reading the article “Elected department heads’ pay chopped,” what a heavy dose of hypocrisy we have here. With the Auditor/Controller’s practiced ability to fervently scrutinize the contracts belonging to special districts, in search of tidbits to enhance his agenda, you would think in the name of the taxpayers he would have brought this to the Board of Supervisors’ attention years ago.

While this scrutiny led to the postponement of firefighters’ paychecks and their job security, this self-righteous scrutiny did not extend to a taxpayers’ warning that an elected gravy-train was bearing down on them.
