Doing business outside the sunshine of open government and accountability.  No surprises.

How did the Commissioners make a decision without discussion?  Was this pre-planned, before they even took office? My own research discovered that Unfug was recognized be the state Democratic party for her work to elect Obama. She was the “best fit” for the prior Commissioners that included Aquafresca, but not worthy of a professional interview session by the new commissioners, that also included Aquafresca, to discuss performance improvement or resetting of goals.  This Commission is costing the taxpayers a tremendous amount of extra money and they have been in office only 2 months.  Why is there nothing in this article about Unfug’s settlement?  I am sure I would have gone after wrongful discharge if I had been her.  I am waiting for the Commissioners to raise their wages next. As a Republican I demand fiscal responsibility and not feudalism. It is time to breakup the Commissioners areas of responsibility into three districts as is and 2 “At-Large” and make the 5 share what the present Commissioners make.  Our county pays its upper management too much in comparison to other 100,000+ taypayer-numbered counties. We need to pay the staff that really put out the work, much more.

Benita - thanks for reading the paper. We wrote previously about the settlement that Ms. Unfug received. Here is the link to that article:
