Inside sources say Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector Larry Walker is considering a run for the seat to be vacated by Goria Negrete McLeod when she leaves for Congress. Walker is a Democrat and former Fourth District supervisor.
Walker has been under fire for several years over the treatment of staff in his office. It was his terminated long-time chief of staff Betsy Starbuck who became campaign manager for James Ramos. Other ACTT staffers worked towards a Ramos victory in hopes that he would take on Walker if elected. Ramos won easily.
Walker replaced Starbuck with Colonies scandal chief snitch Matt Brown. Brown and other family members have been accused of a variety of indiscretions, including misappropriation of federal funds but no action has ever been taken against them.This entry was posted in Local Government by Administrator
