Supervisorial Hopefuls' Voting Record

* Voters should be aware of the voting record of supervisorial candidates Jim Silva and Linda Moulton Patterson. As members of the Huntington Beach City Council, both of them have voted to approve contracts with city employees that allowed pension spiking.

Each year they have voted, as part of the budget process, to levy a special property tax of over $6 million on the residents of Huntington Beach to pay for city employees' retirement contributions.

So much for Silva's claim to be anti-tax!

I wonder why the Orange County sheriff's officers endorsed Moulton Patterson. Could they be looking for a supervisor that will allow them a feeding frenzy at the public trough?
