Hire Out


Open letter to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors:

How can you give raises when our county is going bankrupt?

I hope the unions don’t have you under their control because they gave to your campaign?

Please protect our hard earned dollars, we are already extremely over taxed in California and hurting.

We need strong leaders today, not puppets of the unions who don’t care about the private sector worker. Mrs. [Doreen] Farr is included in this group.

I just want the best for our county. Consolidate all the numerous departments. Contract out all services that are in the yellow pages- this is an old saying.

Why would you compete with the private sector? It would be cheaper to put everything out to bid as needed.
