Jerry Hill is getting a lot of warn and fuzzy press right before the election.

I will never forget his comment to CBS 5 reporter Robert Lyles when asked about the 54 San Mateo County employees taking 11 County vehicles to Las Vegas, costing the taxpayers about $15,000 according to John Maltbie. "Those trips happened under the radar, Nobody knew they where happening" .........Mr. Hill was in Las Vegas that same weekend. He was and is still a member of the Service League which had several people on that trip.

I have no idea why he didn't say.....No Comment.

Yeah, cause government employees should NEVER get any perks in their job.
They should get the lowest wages, work in buildings that are falling apart, get dumped on by the public, and never get ANYTHING extra.

I am so glad to read this story, we seem to love to read the bad news and this is such a wonderful outcome. I wish the best to Mark Harvin and Project 90 and anyone who works hard to turn their lives around. And how brave to make amends to Jerry Hill. I'm not sure what the negative comments are about, they have nothing to do with this article. Write a letter to the editor about your complaints about the politician. This is after all an article about Mr. Harvin and how he turned his life around. But some people don't seem to be able to stay on topic!
