Original post made on Dec 28, 2022

An embattled Santa Clara County deputy district attorney should be back at work after the DA's decision to fire him last year was overturned. But his boss is putting up a fight.

After reading about this saga for months, I can only conclude one thing. Both Jeff Rosen and Daniel Chung should be removed from their positions. This is a sorry, petty, distracting personal feud by two power-hungry men.

We need someone in office who will focus on enforcing the laws rather than playing the victim or stoking their own ego. We also need leaders who can weather criticism by their own employees and make meaningful course corrections.

Fentanyl is killing high school kids and these two clowns are worried about expense reports? I'm voting for "neither of the above" in the next election.

I believe Chung’s claim since Rosen is a proven activist against free speech.

Just an Observation,

There is NO BINDING ARBITRATION in Santa Clara County, it was attempted in 2004

County of Santa Clara Binding Arbitration, Measure C (November 2004)
A County of Santa Clara Binding Arbitration, Measure C ballot proposition was on the November 2, 2004 ballot in Santa Clara County, where it was defeated.

Yes: 204,377 (43.50%)

No: 265,498 (56.50%) Defeated

Measure C was supported by public employee unions in the county. It would have given arbitrators the final say in pay disputes between the county and its nurses, jailers and attorneys.[1]

The question asked on the ballot was, “Shall the Charter of the County of Santa Clara be amended to supersede dispute resolution processes contained in State and County law in the event that bargaining is unsuccessful, to impose binding arbitration to resolve negotiation disputes over wages, hours or other terms and conditions of employment between the County of Santa Clara and unions representing certain County attorneys, certain officers employed by the County Department of Correction, and certain County registered nurses, who currently resolve disputes pursuant to law?”

The reports saying that the Arbitrator COULD order the DA to reinstate Chung is incorrect. It is merely advisory.

Please make a correction here?
