Woman Dictating LA County Shutdowns Isnít a Medical Doctor, Paid More than $500K
Red State ^ | May 14, 2020 | Jennifer Van Laar

Posted on 05/15/2020 7:58:04 AM PDT by C19fan

Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Dr. Barbara Ferrer made news Tuesday when she told the county’s board of Supervisors that the “Safer at Home” order would almost certainly be extended for three more months when it expired May 15. Outrage ensued, and the Board of Supervisors and Ferrer herself walked back those comments. Turns out that walk-back was just a giant “psych!” because Ferrer announced the new order Wednesday – one with no expiration date. But, give her credit for being literal – it wasn’t a three-month extension. To say that the vast majority of county residents are upset is an understatement. As we at RedState have argued throughout our collective quarantine, the people making these decisions are people with stable, steady paychecks – paid for by We the People. Ferrer definitely fits in that category, but the amount of her salary is stunning. According to Transparent California, a watchdog group, Ferrer’s total compensation package in 2018 was $553,249.

“Philanthropic Strategist.”

Schemer for obtaining and dispensing government and foundation money.

A PhD in Social Welfare is almost as impressive as a PhD in Education.

Corona-19 means big bucks and power for those who violate our constitution and take away our rights.

Remember, this Lockdown Left B$ has never been about improving your health nor your families’ health.

It is/has been, since day 1, about taking away our rights and controlling us! With us paying for this Lockdown Left B$ with our tax dollars to have their *Kapos control us.

*Kapos, called Funktionshäftling by the SS, were prisoners who collaborated with the Nazis to serve in leadership or administrative roles over others interned in the same Nazi concentration camp.

Perhaps she enrolled in Organic Chemistry and dropped it after a week. That course will make or break Pre-Meds.

If one does not have an MD, one should not be referred to or given the honorific of Dr in the media.

Further, she looks like a gargoyle.

California wants us to bail them out so they can keep paying $500K salaries to corrupt government employees.

... Ferrer received her Ph.D. in Social Welfare from Brandeis University, a Master of Arts in Public Health from Boston University, a Master of Arts in Education from the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and a Bachelor of Arts in Community Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Social welfare, Education, Community Studies (?!).... the hard sciences.

And on top of all that, pay this fraud half-a-million a year and you can be sure she gets a very generous pension.

Doctor Rick-bright Deepshit Darkwinter is not a medical doctor either. He’s a whistle blowing biologist whose main activity is attending seminars.

Further, she looks like a gargoyle.

Please do not insult perfectly good-looking and useful gargoyles on this site by comparing them to this stone-faced frozen-jawed hairriddian spewing hate-filled substances from her soul.
(But what would Laz hit it with?)

No technocrat should ever be allowed to set public policy.

They are too heavily, even solely, biased toward one aspect of the problem and not being elected are not accountable to the public at large.

It’s OK for an elected official to get their imput, but the elected official should set the policy and it should be based on input from all the various interest groups.
