Arnie sure can pick 'em!
From further in the news story:
Lopez, 41, a Democrat who was formerly executive director of the Coro Foundation in Los Angeles, was appointed by Schwarzenegger in April 2007 to head her department, which includes boards and bureaus set up to protect consumers. Her salary is $142,965 a year.
Our State Monarchy believes they’re entitled.....
All comments or claims of “public duty”, “civil service” or “giving to the community” are bull squat...
“Public Service/Civil Service” positions have become the biggest while collar crime and scam in the state...
I would love to serve on a board to determine what “State Services” should be OUTSOURCED to private industry....INCLUDING an assessment for ending government controlled PUBLIC SCHOOLS and all Union positions.
Well that explains why she needed to be subsidized to attend a Timberlake conference.
It's just sooooo hard to make ends meet these days!
Just another one of Arnold’s Democrat friends. Just look at all of the public agencies that she oversees, and you will realize how bloated the California state government has become. But the A-hole sitting in the governor’s office is so brain dead from all of those years of taking steroids, I am surprised he can even find his way to the bathroom.
