Rider: "It's not just the fiscal conservatives like myself that are driving this issue, it's a much broader spectrum of people they recognize the lack of response and the arrogance.. if he cant be replaced, he doesn't have to be responsive."
Rider says the only reason the Supervisors are not in the same trouble as the city council is because the County sold hundred of millions of dollars in pension obligation bonds to finance generous pension increases.
Rider believes taxpayers should have voted on the bonds before they were issued. The Supervisors say the stability of the board has created a financially stable County, and that voters are free to replace the board at election time if they are dissatisfied.
