San Mateo County Supervisors do it again. Refuse to publish SamTrans Transit Expert seat available soon.
Original post made by Michael G. Stogner, another community, on Nov 28, 2010
"unlike every other commission vacancy listed on the page, the SamTrans Transit Expert post contains no information, no link to detailed information describing what the position entails, what qualifications one may need or even whom to contact to make such an application. Regardless, the deadline to apply for the unusually classified Transit Expert seat on the SamTrans board is Dec. 6, 2010."
"It appears that the Board of Supervisors is again embracing an opaque and anti-democratic process to install a friend to an important county post. Whether the lack of a public and transparent process is a sin of omission or a sin of commission it really doesnâ€™t matter. This is bad government and it needs to stop immediately."
One more week to vote!
