The continuation of a bad move

comment

Congratulations to District 2 voters for re-electing Supervisor Bruce Gibson and returning him, and his former mistress, now wife, to the county's payroll.

Public record shows his wife earns $76,000 a year along with county benefits, and he earns $86,000 a year plus benefits for a total of $162,000 plus benefits. That makes the total cost for this supervisor $1.9 million plus benefits for time served to date. By the end of his fourth term, our tax dollars will support a total more than $2.6 million.

Is this in our best interest when Mr. Gibson cost the residents of Los Osos more than $20 million in unwarranted cost overruns for the sewer project? This fact caused one of his opponents to state that Mr. Gibson should be so ashamed that he should resign from office.

Hanky panky during the sewer project was aided and abetted by him, including the resignation of county Public Works Director Paavo Ogren.

It was stated that it would take a book to describe the misdeeds perpetrated during the sewer installation that cost Los Osos residents $183 million plus the cost of a $10 million lawsuit.

Thank you for re-electing a career politician who milks all of us taxpayers dry.
