What is wrong with San Bernardino County?

      San Bernardino County (Ca.) is the largest county, area wise, in the country, with a population of over 2 million. So why is it one of the poorest counties in the country? One word – Politicians (mostly all were Republicans).

            San Bernardino County (Ca.) is the largest county, area wise, in the country, with a population of over 2 million. So why is it one of the poorest counties in the country? One word – Politicians (mostly all were Republicans).

            Starting with Congressman Jerry Lewis, most known for his involvement with the Duke Cunningham scandal, and also voted the most corrupt member of Congress 6 years in a row. He did absolutely nothing for the district, except stifle it.

            Then there was the Postmus scandal, which also took down 2 corrupt supervisors (Biane and Ovitt) and Assistant Assessor Jim Erwin, and later Supervisor Neil Derry, for money laundering.

            Back in the 1990s, consecutive county administrators, Harry Mays and James Hlawek, went down after running the corners office like a criminal enterprise. In 2004, then-Supervisor Gerald Eaves pleaded guilty to accepting unreported gifts from a businessman in exchange for favors.

            I still can’t figure out why anyone in San Bernardino County would even consider voting for a Republican, especially considering the crimes they have committed, and the damage they have done to the county.

            Now we have a new batch of supervisors, Curt Hagman, Janice Rutherford, Robert Lovingood, James Ramos, and Josie Gonzales. They all have their little pet projects that they take on to get free photo ops, but have not improved the county in any way. Have you ever tried to get your supervisor to do something, or fix something? Don’t hold your breath, unless you are a major campaign contributor.

            The excuse given is that the county has no money because of low property tax revenue, due to low home values. A majority of home values across the nation are back above the mortgage scandal prices, but not here. My house is worth less now than 12 years ago. Why? Because we have a pathetic infrastructure that most of the third world countries would be embarrassed by. And on top of that almost half of the county has no access to high speed internet, or even cable T.V., which in itself is pretty pathetic.

            Again the reply is we have no money. Across the country counties have dealt with these problems, and still manage to prosper. So what does that say about San Bernardino County administrators? Many counties across the country have partnered with businesses to improve the quality of the infrastructure and the quality of life of their residents, so people are happier, home values go upPsychology Articles, and so do county revenues. Is that asking too much?
