Almost as disturbing as the act itself is the obvious arrogance that nothing wrong has been done.

Although I don’t agree with them 100%, I do enjoy your changing “Signatures.” I especially like your current signature. Personally, I have others that I can relate to for my own personal Signature, but this one seems suitable for me in this place in time.


Look at the title at the top of this post.

Yeah . . . I like it! Okay, you found me out. I'm not the sharpest tack in the tool box. Actually, I usually wear a contact for reading, but the last two days, I've had to switch to reading glasses. It's like a different world . . . lol. Wonder what else I've missed?

LOL! I wore contacts for 42 years, but gave them up last year. Instead of using reading glasses over contacts, I now just take my glasses off to read. I sometimes serve as a "designated reader" for my friends of similar age who have left their readers home....

What really caused the switch is that my astigmatism worsened to the point where I really needed toric lenses, and that increased the price of disposable contacts by about 4x.

Funny how they bashed AB and now it surfaces as to mode of operation that has been going on for years. They should thank AB for taking the spotlight off of them!

This assures anyone who (Democrat) wanted to run for office that did not because of the Democratic Elections Office keeps the way things will be for a long time.

I bet Carly doesn't last long.

That won't happen - she said she is retiring next year at 65 years old. She will not see another re-appointment request for herself.

Funny how this appointment of her son, CARL, came after the BOS meeting on Tuesday.

This is a DOUBLE - BANGER for the SAME family. Son gets Mothers appointment, mother retires 1 year later, Son gets put up for appointment...BAM - another whole generation of SAME RULE.....

I hope you DEMOCRATS are happy being cut out of any discussion or any jobs by just a few on the Committee.....

If it doesn't suit Ted Young, Ruth and Pete Same and Sue Sauvageau then it doesn't get support or happen.



If mommy Same retires next year will the democratic committee be ready to recommend someone new to the County Board of Supervisors or will Carl Same get mommy's title and a raise?

How much does mommy Same make anyway?

"I have NO personal animus against anyone in the family."

Same here. I wouldn't know her if I saw her, and have never spent much time thinking about her, or her job, mostly because I'm neither democrat nor republican, I guess.

I would be completely disgusted with ANYONE who made a similar move.

According to the wage website, Ruth Same makes $47,414 a year for her position in the Board Of Elections. That does not include benefits.

Sorry to trim your Nepotism family tree:

Neither Steve nor Valerie Churchill have an Aunt Ruth Same, Uncle Peter Same, or Cousin Carl Same.
