Opinion Piece Slams Cuts to Services for Elderly, Disabled
In an opinion piece, Jonathan Glidden -- a retired attorney who was an aide to former state Sens. Rebecca Morgan (R-Menlo Park) and Tom Campbell (R-Menlo Park) -- and Nicki Pecchenino -- a former campaign consultant and chief of staff to Santa Cruz County Supervisor Robley Levy -- criticize Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) proposed cuts to In-Home Supportive Services. They write, "The proposed savings of $1 billion may soon appear to be a poor bargain," adding, "The taxpayers of California will merely put money back into one pocket and take even more out of another, and everyone will then be the worse off for the bargain."
