No cost savings will result

By
From page B3 | November 01, 2012 |

I am not sure why the ballot Measure H does not explicitly say it will eliminate an elected office. It says things like combining the auditor-controller/treasurer-tax collector offices and staffing it with an appointee will save the taxpayers money and will make the government be more efficient.

I smell a rat when I hear public officials ask people to give up their right to vote. After researching further, I see serious issues with Measure H:

* An appointee will not be as independent as an auditor-controller elected by the people.

* The auditor/controller and treasurer/tax collector already have been combined as of the last primary election to make government more efficient and save money. There will not be any further realignments and or further cost savings. The ballot measure is misleading since passing Measure H will not save the taxpayers any new money or make the government any more efficient.

* Another reason the taxpayers will not save money was best expressed in the article by the Measure H opposition: “In fact, we may end up paying the appointee a higher salary. The public may pay much greater costs in terms of potential waste, fraud and abuse of public funds by not electing an auditor-controller who is accountable to the taxpayers.”
