The Merc’s Tracey Kaplan writes about Jeff “I am the law” Rosen screaming “all aboard” for this latest ride on his crazy train. Hot on the heels of the Merc Editorial Board’s lauding of the immaculacy of Boss Rosen’s hires, one of those hires has been fired by the county. The reason? Being the brother-in-law to Rosen’s number two in the office, Jay Boyarsky, isn’t enough; you actually have to meet the minimum qualifications for the job.
Rosen’s communications guy, Sean “big brother” Webby, who our spies tell us got a nice salary bump, had this to say his boss; “No comment”. Glad your getting more money to say less. Snoop on any phone calls lately?
And in a major economic boom to the South Bay the Santa Clara 49ers will be hosting the Super Bowl in 2016. Congratulations Jamie Mathews, who could be our favorite local Mayor!
