No mention of the slush fund that for the second time in ten years has been the subject of scalding Marin Grand Jury reports condemning. They hope we all just lead our everyday lives and forget but it will not happen this time. This political patronage fund needs to be eliminate. When will the supervisors eliminate this fund? Will it take a Federal Grand Jury? Supervisors it is show time.

Al Dugan you are right on target. Did you read today's IJ's (Jan 12, 2013) letters to the editor? There is public OUTRAGE about the slush fund. Supervisors know the public is upset, wants it abolished, but still the Supervisors just want to make "adjustments." If they had any morals, they would abolish it. A little Congress we have in Marin County. Just terrible. The Supervisors have NO SHAME.

I want a $10,000 annual car allowance like Judy Arnold. Why should she get paid to drive to work? The question remains, will Arnold lead the charge in getting rid of the slush fund or does she need it for her upcoming election?

Today's IJ is even more compelling! The county's wayward lawsuits "cost us millions of dollars and should never have been brought, to cover a case pertaining to a computer system that cost us $30 million and that never should have been purchased," fumed Jody Morales, founder of Marin's Citizens for Sustainable Pension Plans, in an email. "The crowning insult: a signed agreement, behind closed doors that shields them from public scrutiny."

They will keep Om coming.....I take it the supervisors are consulting with you on the matter?

I'm all for constructive dialogue, where we can disagree on an issue, without being personal. Civil discourse helps those on both sides of an issue to understand the other side of the coin. However, it seems that you don't agree, and just like to get nasty without contributing much of substance to the conversation. I flagged you, because you were rude to Al Dugan, and got personal without offering anything to the conversation. I wonder how much your comments would change, if you were to sign your real name. Do you notice how many sites don't let people use an alias anymore, to stop the trolls? Maybe you should try signing your real name the next time you want to comment, and notice how much it has an effect on what you have to say.
