San Bernardino County SEIU Local 721 members questioned the accountability of top county administrators after County Board of Supervisors emerged from closed session on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015.
Every day our members come to work to ensure the safety and well-being of our community. They expect leaders that are willing to stand up and be accountability. They want leadership that they can trust.
CEO Gregory Devereaux has built a fortress around himself and his top administrative staff. Even the Supervisors are kept out, allowing him to sweep away wrong doings by his cronies. Just saying, “We will learn from mistakes and will do better” isn’t good enough. Members will join with community allies on Thursday to keep the pressure on the BOS to institute transparency and accountability amongst top administrators.

“I am disturbed by the latest black mark against our County. When Mr. Devereaux became CEO, we were told the pattern of cover-ups and corruption was going to stop. But has it? Apologies are well and good, but we need to see action.” – Oracio Diaz, SB Social Service Practitioner, and SEIU 721 member.
“It is time for the Board of Supervisors, our elected leaders, to step up and demand that the County’s administrative staff be accountable for their actions and install measures of transparency.” – Chris McCormick, SB Public Works Engineer II, and SEIU 721 member.
