Perhaps the county should hire a professional HR and County Manager that knows how to select qualified and trained staff, instead of hangers ons that have limited skills.I hope for Mr. Jones's sake he matures into his role, because after 12 years very slight or negligible improvement in the way the county is operating. Let's hope a real business or experienced government employee from another county runs for chair. THIS COUNTY can't afford 4 more years of Robbing Peter to Pay Paul management.

No state patrol post, but a tax increase every year because he can't grow the tax base, for years failing to admit that the county had a budget crisis and still stuck by a clueless finance director, a recreation center that we really didn't need, adding new expenses by constitutional officers that can't budget out of a paper bag. Continual poor hiring decisions that put the county in a less than good light. A bit stubborn in dealing with other political leaders, where cooperation might improve citizen options and opportunities. Antiquated management processes. Makes rash decisions.
