This tinhorn politician's most notable accomplishment has been to put his name first on the return address line of property tax returns, and, at least in the past, expected us to make out checks to him personally. He evidently wants to remind us how puffed up he is. So let's accommodate him by crossing out "ington" and replacing it with "oon".

What a discussion on CA Prop 8 has to do with the financial malfeasance of the County Tax Collector/Treasurer is unclear to me.
So, getting back to the comments on the article regarding the county's loss of school district funds - I am amazed at the tone of the quotes from Mr. Buffington in this article. It sounds very much like he's blaming the school districts for trusting his financial judgement.
It seems to me that we need someone with more financial savvy in the position of County Tax Collector/Treasurer. The next election for this office will be in 2010. I hope that Mr. Buffington has some opposition this time.
