Will the Supes eliminate the slush fund? Probably not. Come on Supervisors! Do the right thing and read the Civil Grand Jury reports and get rid of it!

Well, it is now 7 weeks since the last scalding Marin Civic Grand Jury report on the supervisors slush fund, and it has not been addressed at a supervisor meeting. 12 years before that the Grand Jury addressed the same issue and it was ignored by the supervisors resulting in the 2012 report. The continued use of this fund by the supervisors is the definition of "hubris". Links to the two reports are below: http://www.co.marin.ca.us/depts/GJ/main/cvgrjr/2012/Responses2012/ocr_the_community_service_funds_report.pdf http://www.co.marin.ca.us/depts/GJ/main/cvgrjr/2000gj/Reports/Supervisor_Discretionary_Fund_Report.pdf

Maybe some day you'll have the guts to post with your real name, and stand by your statement, like Al does. If no other county has a slush fund, and 2 grand jury reports blast it, then why would we want to forget about it? Why are the sups ignoring the will of the people?
Kevin Moore February 23, 2013 at 04:05 PM
Keep reminding them, they are ignoring the grand jury.

The other counties don't have slush funds, Pointless. The real difference between Bell, the Oakland Port Authority, and the Marin County Board of Supervisors is that Marin doesn't have to ask for permission to blow money on strip clubs. As for my name- just look me up in the phone book. I'm listed. The developer pimps already looked up my personal finacial data and posted it on the internet, so I have nothing to fear. I'm clean. As for you- here's a hint. Tell mamma to keep a cork in her bastard cannon until AFTER they scrawl their name on her back. Or just look at your driver's license, if you have one. That will help you avoid the usual confusion on father's day. Meanwhile, no namers are like the tallest hobbit. Still not good enough.

Well Point On (exclamation point) this is right on point. This reflects the agenda of the supervisors and I am pointing out a key issue that continues to be ignored in their agendas.
Eleanor Sluis February 24, 2013 at 06:24 PM
It takes up to 500 times before a message gets through to people. Thank you Al for staying on target and droning about the need to stop using taxpayer's dollars for almost $500,000 free use by the supervisors. This is not democracy at work, but wasteful and perhaps corruption at the local level.
