    What ever happened to the last “czar”? I recall they paid that insider $200k/year and accomplished nothing. And the last “Coordinator” was brought in from San Diego – what 8 years ago? What happened to her? Then the ED of the community non-profit awarded millions for decades -admits to not being able to control his aggressive outbursts and lack of communication skills? Meanwhile 500 homeless are deficating all over the civil center area – on a daily basis and spreading disease?

    The whole issue is a mind boggling public sector disaster – a lot like the Animal Shelter.

    How are all these issues connected? By the “family” getting filthy rich. The EA who is responsible for the Homeless and the Animal Shelter also runs “Pork Parks” and his wife ran the snitch tank (medical unit) for years.

    The Sheriff needs to accept feedback from her Management.

    It would be great if the County allowed their Executives to be evaluated. The statements would be the like this:

    He is never here and when he is – his attention span is about 5 seconds because he is a blue collar construction guy with a HS diploma and doesn’t understand all this “government regulatory bullshit”.

    Etc, etc, etc.

      Just like a former CEO with the Uni of Phoenix pretend, pay to play, fake “degree”. The legacy remains.. just check out landfill managers…..at least the former CEO paid ie: had the county pay for the worthless piece of paper …others under his wing never bothered to try to fake it – just sheer entitlement and hubris.

        Did you hear the The King of Trash- just inked the import garbage deal to close out the OC BK? What was his rate paid as a double dipping “consultant”?

        That’s why he got the CEO – pension spike. He was tier 1- he only needed a year. I think he worked 9 months then went on medical leave to set up “Disability Retirement”.

        He made sure all the “family” got set up for promotions and bonuses. Mauk had every agency covered but Giancola really set up the next generation.

          Interesting. It would be an easy job for him – all he has to do is do what his handlers tell him to do…..

    Hutchens has her panties in a twist over “hateful and immature quotes”? Boy, is she going to meme those meanie poos on her Facebook and Twitter! There might be a rumble on the playground after work!

    Seriously?

    Sheriff, do us all a favor? You ignore reports of actual crimes being done on your watch, and you let your deputies do guido henchmen tasks for Hot Toddy. What did you expect, honey? Cookies?

    Grow up.

    So… there was NOBODY internal to Orange County – working/living/working at the County of Orange who was willing, able, interested, qualified for the job? Speaks volumes for the failure to promote from within the County as a whole and/or from county government. Pretty sad state of affairs. Of course one might ask who would want to work for the BOS here at the good ole County of Orange given the wreakage that is our local government.

      If she can make a difference in Long Beach, she will here. I suppose it is a different Suzie Price than LB councilwoman for District 3 who has done wonderful things serving her constituents. Councilwoman Price I think is with our OC DA office.

      Hope the needy who want to be helped, get the leg up they need. There’s the homeless and the don’t-want-home-ness out there. Makes it tough to help.

      • Kathleen Tahilramani

        The LB councilwoman is a different person. I anticipate she will do fine as long as she has the support of the BOS and the CEO. Agreed, helping the homeless is a very complex task – some people prefer to be left alone, no matter the danger to self. I still find it very odd and discouraging that there was nobody local tapped to address this important issue. They have pulled a talented and dedicated person away from Long Beach leaving a hole there – is it logical that there was not one qualified county person?

        • OCservant_Leader

          Kathleen – you raise an excellent point. There wasn’t anyone – not one Manager with a career in human services and educated…working for these political hacks for decades and knows OC homeless issues personally –because we have to step over them to get to daily meetings?

          Nope – Not someone who will sign up for another “spin to accomplish nothing” ahead of them.

          I’m surprised CEO Frank Kim doesn’t have another sibling?

          • Kathleen Tahilramani

            The line of burned out imports from other than OC and there are dozens from LA County, have not done us any favors. I have a dreadful recall of the expensive county”employee development” programs: Servant Leadership..Passport to Nowhere…blah blah…and the only thing that became clear was that former EA’s will grab the top spots and only gluteus maximus kissers with little to lose will get promoted. Honestly, if you have anything to lose, care about your integrity and ethics and care to be able to look yourself in the mirror & sleep at night the idea of being promoted into upper management at the county is not necessarly a good thing all things considered.

          • OCservant_Leader

            Well said. By the time the nice lady figures out who is who’s wife and which ones are EAs or related to the Band of brothers — another election cycle is over and she accomplished nothing.

    • Jacki Livingston

      Actually, Kathleen, this is a GOOD thing. I know some of the people at SSA who would have been in the lead for it, and who got to their exalted positions by hook, crook, aunties and kneepads. This is probably the better option, given the vast cesspool of criminally tainted managers over there. Half are sociopathic scum hoods, and the rest are gutless/brainless cowards. This is a better choice.
