Orange County First District Supervisor Andrew Do immediately disappointed us when he hired his Chief of Staff – the odious and overpaid Brian Probolsky. Probolsky is being paid over $60 an hour – and now we know what we, the taxpayers, are getting for our money.
Do recently dispatched Probolsky to the “Annual Kids’ Fishing Derby,” at the North Lake of Mile Square Regional Park in Fountain Valley. OC Parks hosted the event with the California Department of Fish and Game and United Anglers of Southern California.
Open to children 15 years old and under, the Fishing Derby stocked the lake with trout and catfish for the attendees. Children were divided into different age groups for the derby and winners were awarded prizes. The event included fishing clinics and provided a free barbecue lunch for the families in attendance.
Probolsky, attended the event to count down the official start of the derby. The picture of Probolsky, above, will live forever as a testament to what over $60 an hour looks like.
Supervisor Do represents most of Little Saigon and the City of Santa Ana. The per capita income in Santa Ana is $16,374, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That works out to $7.87 an hour (at a rate of forty hours a week). And Probolsky is making over $60 an hour, which comes to about $135K a year. The median household income in Santa Ana is $53,335 a year. That’s right – Probolsky is making almost two and a half times the median household income in Santa Ana.
