Our little bird informed us this afternoon that the senior leadership of the ‘judicial council staff offices’ pooled together their brain cells just enough to release some cranial flatulence. They decided that having everyone travel to hear a consultant speak in Sacramento for one hour was probably not the best use of public funds.
They ordered all travel plans canceled and indicated that said consultant would meet with these managers and supervisors in regional meetings at a later date. Said little bird thanked the influential role that Judicial Council Watcher plays over the money-wasters…. but the real thanks goes to the many little birds that populate the judicial council staff offices who aren’t afraid to make their case to us when their management goes sideways which is an everyday occurrence.
And the consultant?
