“MANAGER OF THE YEAR” TOM DALY MANAGES TO WASTE OVER $70,000 OF TAXPAYER MONEY ON REMODEL. OCEA IS M.I.A. –AGAIN!



While several county departments have to endure furloughs and layoffs, “Manager of the Year” Tom Daly seems to be on a mission to continue to waste public money the taxpayers be damned. We recently learned that a remodeling project for a “marriage ceremony and passport application acceptance room” is near completion. The cost to tax-payers: $73,000 plus change. For a remodel. Of a room. I’m pretty sure we won’t hear a peep from OCEA and it’s head thug, Nick “Bullhorn” Beradino. I’m still hoping Nick misplaced the bullhorn in some nook or cranny and is frantically looking for it..

I would like to invite OCEA members and the general public to come and see for themselves how this wastrel continues to shove his crazy spending down the taxpayers’ collective throat. From the looks of it, no expense was spared. But you be the judge.

The location is: Old Orange County Courthouse, 2nd floor
211 West Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana, CA 92701

And while you are at it, drive by the $2.1 million money pit Tom bought 2-years ago for his Sports Hall of Shame, at:

433 Civic Center Drive
Santa Ana, CA 92701

After you soil yourselves in anger, call Tom Daly at (714) 834-2248 and let him know how you feel about this wasteful spending.

I am providing the address because I want to make sure that the OCEA and Nick Berardino don’t get lost on their way to protest this wasteful spending just like they did the Board of Supervisor’s remodel last year.

Nick, if you need to borrow a bullhorn let me know. OCEA needs to tell Tom that this has to stop. The voters need to send Tommy boy a strong message this June. Vote career politician and free-spending Tom Daly out of office!!

By the way, it would interesting to know what the Board of Supervisors know about this latest misadventure. Wanna call up and ask?

    Hey Shawn Nelson ask Nick to look for his bullhorn.

    This is bullshit that Tom Daly continues to blow taxpayers money and he isn’t held accountable.

    We need to vote Tom Daly out of office.

    I would like to know if the Board of Supervisor’s approved this remodel?

    I watched the Board meeting yesterday and Frank Kim was saying that the budget for this coming fiscal year is going to be bad. I know employees will be layoff in the County due to the budget but it’s OK for Tom Daly to remodel?

    I appreciate FFFF efforts to expose how our government redistributes our money into pet projects. FFFF bloggers should take a close look at the intangible pet projects that are called county agencies and commissions

    Tom Daly finds a need to feel important so to do that he spends other peoples money because its the only way he can creat a legacy. Tommy boy Gary Grandville started electonic recording so stop claiming you did. If you concentrated on work instead of annas panties you just might accomplish someting. Stop wasting my money you crack manager you!

    Hey Board of Supervisor’s, get on your job and monitor what that idiot Tom Daly is doing and STOP HIM~! THERE ARE LOYAL HARD WORKING COUNTY EMPLOYEES THAT ARE BEING AND HAVE BEEN LAID OFF AND TOM DALY IS THROWING AROUND TAXPAYERS DOLLARS FOR BULL CRAP WHICH IS NOT NEEDED, ESPECIALLY IN THESE HARD TIMES. IF HE WANTS TO MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF, HE SHOULD FIRE ALL THE FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS AND RELATIVES HE HAS HIRED AND PULL THE LIST OF LAID OFF EMPLOYEES AND PUT THEM BACK TO WORK.

    Nick (OCEA) you should be shame of yourself. Some if not all of those laidoff employees were OCEA members and how dare you support and donate their hard earned money to Tom Daly.

    Everyone who agrees with me hollar back!

    Yes! Daly you can start by letting go of you illegal alien employee Dulce who can’t even speak English. How the hell does a non-English speaker get a job in this day and age?

    Why is daly renovating this area now?? is he running out of room in his existing space?? Has the Clerk Recorder business increased that much (if at all)? Is his 433 “money pit” building going to be used in the near future???
