[Contra Costa County] Editorial: Remove “Bad Boy Assessor” Gus Kramer…

Blog note: this editorial calls for the civil grand jury to file an accusation.

Retaliation against an employee that cost taxpayers $1 million. Questionable private land deals. Sexual harassment of his workers. Fined by the Fair Political Practices Commission. And by the Bay Area air board.


It’s time for Contra Costa County Assessor Gus Kramer to go. The civil grand jury should file an accusation of willful or corrupt misconduct in office, a finding that would lead to a jury trial to decide whether he should keep his job.
