Williams submitted a letter of retirement effective Jan. 23, 2012, but there is no guarantee he will retire at that time.
. . .
Williams is paid $153,206.40 a year to head the combined Public Administrator/Public Guardian departments – a paycheck he will keep despite losing half of his job.
The latter part of this saga is covered in these articles:
• Williams Wants [to] Keep His Job Until Next Year, Then Retire (Voice of OC, March 10, 2011)I’ll cut to the chase. At some point, it had become clear to our Stupid Supes that their crony Williams (among other things, 4 of the 5 Supes shared the same ethically-challenged lawyer with Williams!) was a total and massive screw-up—so much so that the County faced serious liability issues each day he stayed on the job. But, again, since Williams had been duly (and dopily) elected as Public Administrator by the clueless OC electorate, nobody had the authority to fire him.
• Williams stripped of public guardian duties (OC Register, March 22, 2011)
• Public Guardian fired by county supervisors (OC Reg, June 7, 2011)
But ("There's always a big 'butt'") he did eventually agree to “retire” at a future date, namely, January 23, 2012—two years before his term actually expires.
That would be three days from now. Monday.
But is he a man of his word?
Ha! That’s just a rhetorical question. Of course he isn’t a man of his word. He's a lying, scheming "fiscally conservative" jackass from hell. But that doesn’t mean he won’t retire on Monday anyway. After all, it must be a drag working (or whatever he does there) where nobody wants you and everybody hopes to God you’ll stay away often and soon and permanently.
We at Dissent the Blog look forward to the big reveal on Monday.
Will this asshole, this hundemensch,** who helped make both the County of Orange and the SOCCCD a laughingstock, step down like he said he would? Hmmmm?
