Ex-Humboldt County Counsel Tammy Falor was given nearly $300,000 dollars as a "gift" from Humboldt County tax payers through the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors (BOS). The payment was basically a "payoff." We will never know why our tax dollars were given away. It would take the average wage earner in Humboldt County nearly 15 years to make that same "gift" amount. And the BOS still has no accountability? Times-Standard Online - Suit on payout to ex-counsel dismissed
Bonnie Neely, chair of the county Board of Supervisors, expressed pleasure at the court's decision. But why should she be happy with the general public being left out of the Humboldt County spending process? I am surprised there has not been more public outcry over the way our tax dollars are spent.
The sad fact is that in a few days this will be a forgotten rant.
