‘Extreme Taxpayer Makeover’

As Orange County citizens may or may not recall, 96-year-old Tax Collector Earl K. Wood passed away in October of 2012, just prior to the nonpartisan election for that office, which was held in November.

This proved to be a great opportunity for Scott Randolph, chairman of the Orange County Democratic Party, to jump into the race, win and settle into the $151,000 per year position.

Meanwhile, OC Mayor Teresa Jacobs had commissioned a Tax Collector Task Force to determine the feasibility of doing away with the office all together, but this didn’t stop Mr. Randolph from doing his own “Extreme Taxpayer Makeover” of our Driver’s License Offices.

Pictures say it all, don’t they?
