WASHAM: Tax dollars are being wasted

Just out of curiosity, how much of my tax dollars has gone toward Dale Washam’s frivolity?

He hasn’t earned his salary, because he’s been too busy with his own agendas. He’s run up idiotic investigative costs in a Don Quixote quest. He’s all but destroyed the assessor-treasurer’s office and function. He’s the subject of multiple lawsuits brought against the county through his temper tantrum demotions and firings. Now we’re expected to pay his attorney fees, plus he wants to be reimbursed for any other fees he’s accrued?

No wonder he never got elected until the convoluted ranked-choice-voting system election. I think the required number of votes to oust him is 65,494 more than we should need.
