Placer County so out of touch

If the Placer County Supervisors “affirmed” the hiring freeze, how did the county bring Tamara Uhler on board? What is it that I don’t understand about “freeze”? And my other itch is that the $313,000 from the Federal Recovery Act funding can be used to fill other positions during this hiring freeze! This budget shortfall is not going away anytime soon, so why add to it? After the initial monies are spent, then where are you going to get those monies again plus pay for their benefit package(s)? The people running our county business still don’t get it. This is not the time to expand government. James Mckesson, Auburn
