Lose an L.A. County Job For Being No Good At It, Get Another County Job at Same $260,000 Salary


That's the sad fate of the ousted Trish Ploehn, formerly of L.A. County's troubled Department of Children and Family Services, now assistant to the county's chief executive, at the same $260,000 a year salary. At least–at very least–county citizens aren't on the hook for severance pay from the job she was fired from. Details, clips, quotes at my California news and politics blog "City of Angles."
