Now sit right down and I will tell you tale about how a politically connected financial supporter in San Bernardino County managed to turn a $4,650 campaign contribution into a $100,000 return in just 18 months. And the best part -- YOU get to pay for it.
The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is set to hire a politically connected crony to a "make-work" employment contract at an annualized cost of $192,000. These are the perks that come with endorsing and contributing to the campaign of the Chairman of the Board.
Please see our press release below where we call upon the board to do a legitimate human resource recruitment for the position. Thank you.

The “make-work” employment contract will pay McEachron more than $56 per hour, plus benefits.
