There’s no real surprise that a resume from an internal candidate has made it to the top of the Tom Mauk-replacement stack per this Register story yesterday from Tony Saavedra: Supervisors name CEO candidate (outside Paywall here).
Why, after the failed negotiations to hire CEO Chandra Wallar away from Santa Barbara County, would any sane professional seeking a bigger job here have left their resume in the pile considering that Wallar subsequently lost her six-figure job?

I am told that Ackerman will likely hire Laura Cunningham, who served as former Supervisor Bill Campbell’s Chief of Staff, if he gets selected to serve as Clerk-Recorder. Continue reading
The union-funded Voice of OC continues their good exposure this week of what we’ll label the “cusp” positions in county government that the Board of Supervisors needs to fill: Board of Supervisors OKs Timetable for Filling Top County Positions. Nick Gerda wrote:
County supervisors adopted a process Tuesday to fill high-level elected posts and made it clear they don’t want the decision to be seen as politically motivated. They intend to appoint a new public administrator, clerk-recorder and auditor-controller, jobs that several high-level political players have been seeking. Continue reading
