    Lord help us if this moron gets herself elected to the OC Board of Supervisors.

  • How can these politicians expect hard working business owners like myself a dentist at http://smoothdentalsantaana.com to make a living when we have to pay them 700% more?

    • David Zenger

      Ha! A commercial!

      This is rich. A dentist complaining about what others are making. How much do you charge for a root canal Elizabeth baby?

    Go check the public employee handbook, Santa Ana. Maximum raises are 10% / year.

    • David Zenger

      But they are not employees, they are…no wait they ARE employees!

    Michele Martinez cites Compton as an example to be followed? Good Lord, Compton has the most corrupt history of any city in LA County, except maybe Bell. You’d better make a better argument than that, Michele.

    The idea of those nincompoops on the SA City Council being full time is actually quite alarming.

      +1 for the use of the word “nincompoop”.

      Nicely played.

        I agree. What happened to public service? You know…when smart people who wanted to better the world went to work for the public? They accepted lower pay than their private sector peers, and a good pension was the reward to make up for that. What happened to people going to work in the public sector because they wanted to improve their community, state or country? Can anyone name any public servants in Orange County? Just one? Honestly, I can’t. They don’t stand up for what is right, they don’t put themselves on the line for the community and they sure don’t look at their job as a place to give, not receive. I spent fourteen years at SSA, and my primary duty was to the public, at the taxpayers who paid my salary. I wanted to help people have better lives. There are still a few old timers there, who believe that, but they are being silenced by the money grubbing, self serving, sleazy embezzlers. No public servant should make more than their private sector peers. No public servant should get raises of more than ten percent per year. No public servant, especially elected ones, should ask for buckets of cash during lean times. I say boot them all, and start electing people who actually want to serve.

        I like that word too. It fits. Anyone got any extra Krugerrands they want to part with?
