The Good —The Leg Drop Award:
The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors decided to leave a sales tax increase off the ballot. Kudos to Supervisors Joe Simitian and Mike Wasserman for realizing the County budget has gone up a lot over the years and people are in financial trouble these days.
The Bad — The Jabroni Award:
It’s a tie this week.
Supervisors Cindy Chavez, Dave Cortese, and Susan Ellenberg voted to put the tax on the ballot but they didn’t have a supermajority. We would have had the highest sales tax in the state if they had their way.
The Santa Clara Unified School District continues to pay disgraced former Councilman Dominic Caserta his full salary and benefits as a teacher. He was credibly accused by numerous females in his classes of sexual harassment and sexual abuse and remains on the Creep Sheet.
