The suspense if finally over.
After months of rumors swirling within Inland Empire political circles. The much anticipated event ended up being anti-climactic.
What you ask?
The just-announced appointment of San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael A. Ramos to the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, otherwise known as the P.O.S.T. Commission.
Last week, Governor Jerry Brown, a democrat, appointed Ramos to the commission charged with administering uniform standards for the training and conduct of peace officers statewide.
It’s been rumored for months that Ramos, a republican-in-name-only, was being slotted for a six-figure full-time Sacramento gig in an effort to bail him out of a political time-bomb, commonly known as the Colonies prosecution.
Looking at the make-up of the current commission, we’re sure they must be just tickled by the news of Ramos’ impending arrival.
The P.O.S.T. commission appointment is a non-compensated position requiring confirmation from the democrat-controlled Senate.
Which should be no trouble for Ramos.
But, at least it’s another excuse for Ramos to travel to Sacramento.
