WatchOurCity has done some digging about Rosario Marin, former treasurer in George W. Bush’s first administration and most recently head of the California State and Consumer Services Industry. This woman certainly is not a poster girl for exemplary public service, and today she just confirmed that notion with an act that hopefully ends her political career.
Rosario Marin resigned this afternoon as the head of the California State and Consumer Services Agency after breaking administration policy of not accepting money for speeches while in office. Marin’s salary was $175K per year. She was caught taking money from big pharma, while her agency pushed to reduce the oversight of prescription drugs. Can you say “conflict of interest” any louder?
Seneca has addressed the ethics issue recently, but it seems that some of our leaders aren’t listening. What will it take for our community stop parading these so called leaders around?
