Letters: Noguez's act

June 05, 2012

Re "Assessor takes leave amid probe of his office," June 2

Los Angeles County Assessor John Noguez's attorney represents his client's indefinite leave of absence as a noble decision. If Noguez were truly noble, he would not be drawing his $192,000 base salary while he passes his days doing nothing for the county.

Taking a paid leave of absence, after allegedly depriving the cash-strapped county of millions of dollars in property tax revenues to boost his

political aspirations, can hardly be considered noble. But it might be another way to stick it to the people who elected Noguez to his six-figure job in the first place.
