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.

She should be referred to as “Her Hideosity”

Nothing but a martinet of the Left, a perennial grad student lurking on the edges of the medical world, if even that.

A non-entity in a political payoff job.

Her orders are: keep LA hobbled, blame Trump.

And of course, being un-elected, can’t hold a recall and get rid of her, right?

Garcetti could go but....not her.

Having a Ph.D may, technically, entitle you to being called “Doctor”. But I won’t call anyone “doctor” unless they are in the medical profession.

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.

I agree...
I see Director Ferrer on my local TV news very frequently...

I have a feeling that Los Angeles County Supervisors are happy to do whatever Director tells them to do...

Mainstream media, in Los Angeles area, thinks that Director is great...But, I do not have a positive opinion of her...

That sign language interpreter should have her own TV show. She’s hilarious!

She appears every day at the podium blandly reciting her latest mandates and orders, which are obeyed without question. Three more months of economic destruction and ruin, at her command.

Orwell updated, for a new century. Big Sister has replaced Big Brother.

Pennsylvania’s Health Director is a psychologist. Great help during a pandemic. Plus that, he’s a transvestite

Is there a “Director of Public Health” out there that actually appears to be healthy? Where do they find these creatures?

Government “work” is often the refuge of the insane, ill-trained, corrupt and lazy. What a pathetic joke on the taxpayers.
