It's worse than most imagine, even County employee's themselves are forced into this fraud:1. county employees MUST be in the union2. county employees MUST pay union dues3. county employees have no control or say on which political candidates or parties the union gives money to.4. Thus, it is possible and common for a county employee that may have a strong preference for a certain political candidate to literally be giving money out of his own pocket to back the opposition of the employees choice.Ridiculous and difficult to believe? Absolutely!Acceptable? Of course not!Dirty politics? Absolutely?Illegal? How can it possibly be not?The only question is why this crystal CLEAR fraud continues to occur year after year. We all know Janet MUST support the union when they come before the Board of Supervisors for more money, more staff positions, more, more, more.THIS IS TEXT BOOK CONFLICT OF INTEREST

I think it's time to add a special law enforcement fee to the property taxes on all the Isla Vista Property Owners, say an extra 10%.

Mark these words, as the GWD asks for a 20% reduction in water usage their going to come back and ask for another large increase on the meter rate and a large water rate increase to cover the losses - another City of Bell!!!

@discoboy , since your going to quote 3 year old articles please refernece mine form 04/08/2011 when the GWD raised their rates:There's more to this story, then whats posted. There's a 'City of Bell" scandal brewing at the GWD and every customer needs top be outraged.
General Manager John McInnes makes $196,789 a year,former County Long Range Planning employee
Assistant General Manager George Eowan makes $171,125 a year.
Administration Manager/CFO Matthew Anderson makes $130,798 a year.
Chris Rich - estimated at $140,000 per year former County Long Range Planning employee
David Matson - about $150,000 year former County Long Range Planning employee
Why did McInnes hire another administrator at $150,000 when the district is struggling pay its bills? Why does a small district require 5 administrators each making $150,000 or more per year?
Matson, McInnes, and Rich all together at County Planning and now all together at the Goleta Water District with huge salaries, this does not smell right.
Why should we pay $800,000 a year for "management", that's more than many small Cities and Counties.
Rumor has it that Matson's girlfriend, with no planning experience, has taken over Matson's interim position at County Housing development, how did this get under the radar?
It's time to expose this fraud ,as dslproductions states, and get a full accounting.

Doesn't it seem ironic that County Supervisors negotiate contracts with the same unions that are donating money to their campaigns ?

I blame Max Fleischmann , this harbor never should have been built in it's current location. They knew it back then when they started bringing rocks over from the Channel Islands that this location would silt up every winter.
