he was chief for 3 years for a giant boost in his pension and is 50 something old with $200k in pension indexed for inflation. How many people at the city will loose their jobs to pay for his retirement? When will one of these guys step forward and say this is wrong. who gets to be the next 3 year chief and get the pension bump?

The county government has doubled in size in the past decade while the population has stayed about the same. Start laying employees off and drastically reducing compensation and benefits before the whole mess falls apart. Sal - get off the raising revenue crap and deal with the real problem which is spending.

Who did this guy piss off at the DA's office? With all the flagrant wasting of public money and serial incompetence in SB county government - the DA is going after this guy for less than $10k? Looks like payback or maybe just a little scape goating. Passaro will end up with full retirement benefits and a big payout from a unlawful termination lawsuit.

Hey Janet Wolf- the people in your district don't want this to happen. How about listening to the people who you are supposed to represent? You were going to quietly jam up-zoning down our throats just a few months ago until the word got out and your constituents jammed your email and voice mail with howls and screams of protest. Our streets are crowded way past any safe level of traffic and we don't want more congestion. Can you hear your constituents or do you even know who we are?
