Running for office

By From page A5 | August 13, 2014

EDITOR:

It takes courage to get up in front of a room full of people to speak, particularly when every word that’s coming out of your mouth is being analyzed and assessed. At the same time, that is true of our county supervisors when they are sitting before us, every Tuesday and any other day they are performing their public duties. Not an easy task.

So, kudos to the people who put themselves out on that limb in their bid for county supervisor. It’s not easy, but your image as someone who is not afraid to answer impromptu questions in public is a great rehearsal for what our supervisors experience every time they meet. And we, the voters, we appreciate your efforts in letting us know where you stand on various issues, concerns and government operations.

With 1,800 employees, 13 departments and 13 elected officials, there is much to discuss and inquiring minds want to know what your thoughts are on managing that large of a business .. and all its constituents.
