Orange County supervisors added a lump of coal to the holiday stockings of several bigwig bureaucrats Tuesday, revoking various promotions, perks and pay hikes.
Notably, the supervisors agreed to:
- Demote Assistant Orange County CEO Rob Richardson and strip his 401(a) benefit and car allowance. (Supervisors said county regulations prevented them from rescinding Richardson's controversial 33 percent pay hike.)
- Reduce Deputy CEO for Infrastructure Alisa Drakodaidis' salary by 13 percent, to $180,752 a year.
The motion was introduced by Supervisor Shawn Nelson.
