And why was this individual hired in 2008 as Finance Director of the SM County Mosquito Abatement and Vector Control District if she already had a criminal record which included a conviction for embezzlement in connection with a previous employer?

She sucked blood from the the blood-sucking-prevention agency.

Um, wait, no one did any kind of background check before giving this woman a job with a salary paid by our taxes? Can I apply?!? I don't know about finance but I've never been indicted for anything!

"She reportedly took medical leave from the district to serve time in prison."

San Mateo County Sheriff Munks got caught in a prostitution sting. San Mateo County Manager John Maltbie was caught in a prostitution sting. (They both were not charged!) These guys are making $300-400K!

No wonder we're in such a mess, and the County is asking for more tax dollars. The County continues to hire the best and the brightest!
