February 13, 1010 – 3:05 PM
One can only imagine the discussion during the special closed-door San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, February 16, 2010, called by Supervisor Josie Gonzales. I wonder which of the four remaining supervisors will be blessed with the duty of having to explain to Gonzales the identities of John Does 4 and 5. At least it will be entertaining for the others.
So Josie, since you seem to think the Board of Supervisors needs to investigate itself, where do you propose to start? Do you realize that all four of the remaining supervisors and a number of their support staff “profitted” from the Colonies settlement in one way or another. So, do you believe that the other four supervisors should place themselves on Administrative Leave and let you run the show?
The biggest “profiteer” was Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, to the tune of $100,000 for his campaign, and he wasn’t even a board member who voted for it. Postmus even told me that he kept Mitzelfelt out of it because he doesn’t believe in involving staff in such high-level decisions.
Supervisor Derry also “profited” from the settlement and he hadn’t even been elected to office yet. Supervisors Ovitt and Biane “profited” from it as did several of their support staff.
