Voting career, liberal Democrats out of office would be a good start.
Has he apologized for supporting our awful plagiarizing District Attorney or being convicted of DUI?
He has not
Let’s start with himself …. and quit being one of the progressive woke party
He’s the laziest of them all; he once said, the Board makes policies. That’s it. He doesn’t care how they are implented, or not, by county administration. He’s a waste of our taxpayer money
I think he’s looking for people to do the actual work. Afterall, he is a “supervisor”.
