Here is one of Jerry Brown earliest initiatives... No surprise... closing down the state office of inspector general... with rampant corruption, who needs an inspector general?
Former city Controller Laura Chick sent an email release announcing that Governor-elect Jerry Brown's transition team has let her know they will be shutting off funds for her state office of inspector general. No hard feelings, Chick writes: "The Governor-elect faces an extremely difficult job in grappling with the severity of the state budget crisis. He received an overwhelming mandate by the voters to make tough decisions, and I wish him the very best during the months ahead." Her statement is after the jump.
