It didn’t take long for newly-elected San Bernardino City Attorney Gary Saenz to make a splash at City Hall.

Saenz has announced he’s eliminating City Attorney Investigator positions. A sign of the beginning of the end for the entire classification that was a subject of heated criticism of recently-ousted Jim Penman.

At this time it’s uncertain if all six part-time, at-will, positions are being eliminated. But it’s highly likely that is is the case.

It’ll be interesting if this sorta thing happens, in both the Riverside and San Bernardino County District Attorney Offices, after next years contested races.
