County Supervisors Still Lack Prom Date

Their first choice said "thanks, but no thanks." She'd rather endure Minnesota winters than move here. (So why did she apply for the job in the first place? For the joy of saying "no?" Seek counseling!)

Their second choice said, "I accept" -- but then got a better deal from his current employer.

Before the L.A. County's Supervisors announce that their third choice has accepted their offer to become "Chief Administrative Officer," they may want to get it in writing. Just a suggestion, fellahs. No charge this time.

Speaking of money, the job pays $270,000 a year. (I wonder if they mentioned that on Craig's List or Monster.com.)

Here's the story from the Daily News: link-o-rama.

And now, some tangentially related dialogue from a great movie:

Napoleon Dynamite: [referring to the dance] Who are you gonna ask?
Pedro: That girl over there.
Napoleon Dynamite: Summer Wheatly? How the heck are you gonna do that?
Pedro: Build her a cake or something.

Even for $270K a year, this is a thankless job nobody wants. There are 100,000 people to manage in the County, many of whom are incompetent. There's a good reason why the City of L.A. wants to be its own County.

Hello Mike,
I heard you on McIntyre (I believe) awhile back and I'm glad you at least spoke about the crushing impact of illegal immigration on LA County. I wish some of your colleagues in the County and especially the City would grow spines and stop denying reality.
