What part of “FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE” do our County Commissioners not understand?  This man has more vacation time then three county employees combined.  He will be gone from his job more then he will be available.  Was that the idea?  Have an absentee administrator?  The average Mesa county citizen makes $27,680 per year.  Do the math, as this man is being forced to live off of almost 5 times that amount.  He is now the best paid, for the expected time working, county administrator in the state.  OH wait! I forgot to mention his benefits! 
Steve Aquafresca was in on Unfug’s hiring and said EXACTLY the same thing about Unfug as he has now said about Fischer….namely a good “FIT” for the county…I could “fit” real well too for that income.

Thank you Duffy Hayes for bringing this to the attention of the people.  As a fiscally responsible citizen and a retired person on a budget, the contract “negotiated” is an unconscionable burden on this county and was NOT necessary. His door better be open to all of us when he is in the county and not in Utah.

I wish Steve Acuafresca would explain what criteria he uses in determining a “good fit” for the county. Why is this man so much more valuable than the previous administrator? Why was Unfug such a bad fit after being a good fit?

Something stinks here, and I think it is cronyism.

One more question: did the Chamber have anything to do with firing Unfug and hiring Fisher? Who is actually the puppet master of our government officials?
