At the Feb. 18 county council meeting, where two of the current commissioners were present, a former commissioner brought up the fact two county council recommendations had still not been officially acted upon by the commissioners. One was made in January 2013 and one in January 2014, and neither appointment has been officially approved. Councilwoman Beth Roach agreed these two citizens are not actually on the board the council voted for them to be on until the commissioners act on it. Even with two current commissioners in the room listening to this discussion, they still didn’t do anything about it on Monday. County Auditor Townsend was present for this reminder too, and he didn’t bring it up to the commissioners to act on.
Another letter writer commented a while back these commissioners need to be led by the hand to do their duties. It seems even that is not enough.
It’s so obvious now why none of these problems were happening prior to 2013. Without a commissioner in one of the chairs covering for the incompetence of the other two, this crew is showing its complete ineptness.
The only way to change the mounting problems due to incompetence is to change the people in the chairs. You will have your chance in the May 6 primary election.
