"The County would benefit by avoiding elections altogether." Don Horsley

Original post made by Michael G. Stogner, another community, on Jun 15, 2012

"It's really difficult sometimes to work with elected officials because they can disregard what the board or county thinks is best," Horsley said.

You wouldn't want a disagreement or a different perspective would you.

"board or county thinks is best" The board is 5 people of which up until this last election 2 were APPOINTED. Who is Don ref. to when he says county? In the story below you'll see that Carole Groom who was appointed has joined Don to make this elected position a appointed position.
