No - You are right, because if it's ok for a few IOU's, than it's ok for a few office supplies to be stolen, and if that's ok than it's ok to use the state car for personal business, and if that's ok than who would mind given a contract to a relative, and if that's ok than why not give ourselves (public servants) a raise (Bell Council), and if that's ok than why not just take everything the tax paying public makes. It is only using the deficit to hate those who abuse public money and public office for personal gain or their personal agenda, both of which are wrong to do. And maybe if everyone would quit looking the other way while these abuses are happening, then yes maybe we would be back in the black.....
That is one hell of a slippery slope argument... For want of a nail...

Like the things I posted don't happen? C'mon they happen all the time and everyone looks the other way because they probably do it as well. Greed causes it to breed and the breed causes the greed.

The only nail I want is to nail those who abuse the system and public office.

Doesn't Davis have their own paper? The Enterprise I think....pot calling the kettle?
Ad hominem attacks have no place anywhere. But I would hope you would agree that most people can read more than one paper of news source? I guess some people just hate all aspects of Valentine's Day.

In a time when county services are supposedly overwhelmed by lack of funds, if the recorders office has the time and funds to disperse IOU's that really have no benefit other than to push a political agenda - This is a waste of resources and should be terminated along with the public servant (recorder) that allows it to happen.

Point Of Clarification: No Public Money or County Resources Are Used To Host This Annual Event. Yolo County Clerk/Recorder Oakley uses her own $$$ to generate these certificates. The I.O.U.'s Are Symbolic In Nature...

When Freddie Oakley Stood For Re-Election In June'10, No Other Challengers Filed Papers To Run Against Her.
