More on the OC Human Relations Commission Cut in Funding
OC Human Relations Commission CEO Rusty Kennedy
(The Big Dipper")
As previously reported, the Orange County Human Relations Board saw its budget cut $50,000 for this fiscal year with notice given that it is time for Orange County to phase out this white elephant and allow them to operate on private funding.
One of the big issues that concerned at least 3 members of the Board of Supervisors was the issue of double-dipping. Apparently, OCHRC head Rusty Kennedy is the big dipper, if you will. He has served in this post since 1981. Last year he retired and now does the same job for a salary of $100,000 plus a county retirement of $120,000 (or is it vice-versa?)
"Ah wunnerful, ah wunnerful, ah"
The blog Voice of Orange County posted a couple of articles reporting the cut in the OCHRC budget which give more details.
What a gig!
