The Sacramento County Administrator's spending habits have once again landed him in hot water.
Brad Hudson, who was recruited from Riverside in June 2011, has spent $15,000 on a LogiSon Sound Masking System he believes will ensure the privacy of certain sensitive conversations.
The Sacramento Bee reports his purchase is raising eyebrows with Sacramento County Supervisors, questioning the necessity of the purchase and is another knock against the administrator, who in December 2011 spent $21,000 redecorating his office.
Hudson defended his purchase as necessary in protecting the sensitive conversations that take place in the county's labor relations office on the seventh floor, and in the personnel office on the fourth floor, of the county administrative building.
County Supervisors the Bee spoke with were less supportive of the purchase, understanding the need for privacy but thinking a less expensive option could have been found.
Fair Oaks, what do you think of the purchase? Is this an appropriate use of county dollars, or should we be concerned with Hudson's spending methods? Vote in our poll below and leave a comment with your thoughts.
