Supervisor Leroy Ornellas has opposed Measure D since the rest of the Board of Supervisors voted to put it on the ballot. He reiterated his opposition in a recent post on his Facebook page.
He takes aim at the pro-Measure D argument that lauds the benefits of experience in a complicated job. He writes:
“Now I’m just a farmer, but I was able to figure out the complexities of a supervisor’s job.
One can only assume that if my colleagues can’t figure it out in eight (8) years, more OJT (on-the-job training) probably isn’t going to make much difference and they ought to step aside and allow citizens with fresh perspectives and new ideas a chance to serve.”
