Bravo for your story about Supervisor John Pedrozo throwing his weight around to protect his employee from the consequences of her conduct. It is shameful. What you havent reported yet is the political fixing hes been trying to do for the Good Ol Boys Club. At the board meeting on Jan. 28, it was announced that Pedrozo had appointed Sheriffs candidate Frank Swiggart to the May Day Fair Board to represent Pedrozos District 1. Hell be replacing Pedrozos best buddy, former Sheriff Mark Pazin. The funny thing is that Swiggart doesnt even live in Pedrozos district. Of course, neither did Pazin. If I was one of Pedrozos constituents, Id sure want to know why no one in District 1 seems worthy of an appointment to the Fair Board.
Pedrozo also appointed Michael Harris to represent District 1 on the Emergency Medical Care Committee. Who is Michael Harris? He was president of the Deputy Sheriffs Association when they contributed $1,650 to Pedrozos re-election campaign. Harris doesnt live in Pedrozos district, either. Oh, and did I mention, Swiggart has also made campaign contributions to Pedrozo. Quid pro quo for the Good Ol Boys Club? Its great to be a friend of Pedrozos.
