The Jordan Brandman controversy is expanding – and it may tank the campaign of his former colleague, Renee Ramirez, who is vying to become the next O.C. Clerk-Recorder. For Brandman, who is now an Anaheim Councilman, this is a nightmare that won’t go away.
“Orange County’s clerk-recorder paid Anaheim City Councilman Jordan Brandman $24,000 for an incomplete report while he was campaigning for office last year, raising questions from two county supervisors about whether the county inappropriately compensated Brandman for a draft report he hasn’t finished,” according to the Voice of OC.
Both Supervisors John Moorlach and Todd Spitzer said they would question Ramirez about Brandman’s contract and work product.
The Voice of OC also reported that “After reviewing Brandman’s draft report, Supervisor John Moorlach estimated it could have been prepared in approximately five hours. At a going rate of $200 per hour, the work submitted so far should not have cost more than $1,000, Moorlach said.”
Don’t forget that it was Tom Daly, the former O.C. Clerk-Recorder, who hired Brandman. And we are now stuck with Daly as our Assemblyman in the 69th District. His reputation is now tanking as well.
