Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2009 | County supervisors never miss a chance to portray the city of San Diego as irresponsible, and to crow about their superior fiscal management. The chickens are coming home to roost and it will be fascinating to see them scrambling to recover, if they can. Not only is the state going to take away some money and the recession going to impact revenues significantly, but there’s the little issue of the pension plan, which will soon go into condition red.
The supervisors, not burdened by term limits, seemingly go on forever in their positions with only token opposition, and you can see most of them gaining weight year after year. Hopefully, next election, some of them may have to sweat instead of bask in their complacency while they dole out their slush fund dollars to favored constituencies.
