Friday, Dec. 28, 2007Even the county admits it diverted the money for firefighting that was produced by Prop 172 to expand the sherriff and DA’s staff.

If the county just used the money for the purpose it was intended for, we could already have a consolidated countywide fire service. 

Since the county’s volunteer firefighters are not organized, they were out politiced by the Sherriff and the DA, and the Board of Supervisors didn’t stand up to them and use the money as the voters intended. And the media hasn’t held anyone accountable so far.
