If any elected official hired a "personal assistant"

If any elected official hired a “personal assistant” for $40,000 annually, don’t you think we would hear about it in the local news media? That’s more money than the highly-publicized retreat in Placer County.

I checked – it’s not true. There is no “personal assistant.” Not in the Clerk-Recorder’s Office, or anywhere in county government. The man running against Clerk-Recorder Lorraine Jewett-Burdick appears to have a hard time distinguishing fact from fantasy. Do we want that kind of person as one of our public officials?

I admire Lorraine for not responding to those ads. She’s got class. She’s got my vote.
