And Now There Are Two

Five months after indicted Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona resigned to prepare for his corruption trial, the county's board of supervisors (BOS) today narrowed the prospective replacement list from nine candidates to just two: Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters and ex-Los Angeles County Sheriff's Chief Sandra Hutchens.

Acting Sheriff Jack Anderson will turn over California's second largest police department to Walters or Hutchens in mid-June after the BOS considers background checks and then make a final vote.

The winner will hold the county's most powerful elective office until at least the 2010 election.

    Aw c'mon Amanda!

    Don't be polite by abbreviating Orange County Board of Supervisors as "OCBoS".

    Let's call them by what they really are: oc BS!

    Well, here we are folks, same song different verse. The wishy washy Board of Supervisors can't do the job they are paid to do. Having interviewed the Sheriff Candidates in depth, any measure of leadership would have dictated a timely decision. But not the professional politicians who continue to drag out the process. Meanwhile the Sheriffs Department remains without an accepted leader. While we are cleaning house at the County level, do you suppose we could get some new Supervisors as well?
