Now if they could also get rid of the dead weight of the other two deputy CEO's and let the new administrator bring on their own team. Won't happen. Logic and this board majority aren't very well aquainted.

See what greed got ya Chandra!! Nice hire BOS. You bear direct responsibility for this one. I hold no hope you'll do any better next time around.
Dr. Dan, this is the last group of people who would ever lead by example by cutting their own budgets.

Ok. Lot's of comments on "well, just bring out some extra porta potties......bring in some lifeguards......." How's this for plain and simple....."Who PAYS???" Port a potties are one per hundred users. Lifeguards for this situation would be a nightmare. How do they keep there eyes on a floating mass of drunk students and who would really pay attention to anything they had to say? The extra cops that the County taxpayers from Cuyama to Carpinteria pay for. As for lifeguard towers, how do you get them down there? Anyone remember the high tide line there? Geez folks, think.

As I've stated before, and as some infer at the moment, there is no money without a major shift in priorities in spending. With a $10 million plus gap again this year, and no sign if it improving in the next 5, you HAVE to have some draconian cuts. Start small, say with reducing the number of staff the Sups have. Reducing their aides from 2 plus an office assistant to one full time and one part time office assistant, you could save over $200,000 in salaries and benefits. Guess what??? That's two cops on the streets, or repairs to the road up to Toro Canyon Park, or 3 social service counselors. But hey, not this group of fiscally challenged electeds. God forbid they actually had to talk directly to constituents as opposed to sending their aides out. But they always have time to talk to their donors.

He'll be glad to live here. It shouldn't take long for him to find out how challenging it is to work for a micro managing BOS in an agency where fiscall irresponsibility is the norm with another multi million dollar deficit this year in excess of $10 million.
On County Picks New General Services Department Director

Her performance hasn't been stellar by a long shot. Lot's of good, solid department heads have been leaving even before she took this job. She just made them happen quicker. But then again, this micro managing board is the one the department heads are accountable to, not her.
