Ft. Worth Rick,
Well put. Perhaps we will see a better "Management Class" with the strong mayor in city government, but for now, our county commissioners are the way we've chosen to select the decision makers. It was formed at a time when it first became necessary for the residents to select persons to be a governing body. Full time involvement was not required. We as electors have failed to change with the times as full time government became the norm. I vote to move to system where we elect commissioners to hire full time qualified management personnel. I believe change is in the wind.
Staci6 is the reason we need to let the elected govern. If the wording or intent was in fact totally nefarious, let the actions of their term show in the vote to re-elect. A good representative of the constituents should not be limited at all. If Staci6 and any others that were confused as to the wording and intent of the measure, they should revisit their 3rd grade primer and stop whining, lest we give intelligence tests before voting. What a novel idea.
