Which delusion of grandeur do elected officials suffer from the most? Answer: that they have only our best interests at heart.

Sarmiento lost his grip on reality at the Jan. 21 board meeting when Jan Flory's proposal for live streaming OCWD board meetings was up for a vote: “In any event, I think talking about this, all of us want to be transparent. I think we all are”, he said.
