Or do they just argue and put things off until the next month? This seems to be mostly what I'm reading in the paper these days. I don't mean to be on here bashing anyone, I just don't understand how people elected to take care of county issues can get away with constantly dodging them. I laugh every time I read a new article about their meetings.

They are all real winners. Who would want to do it? How much do they even make anyway? I guess it's one of those deals where you get what you pay for.

Seems they all like to tell you they are county commissioners though.

I don't think any of them know crap about government. They are supposed to uphold the constitution. I seriously doubt they have made it past the preamble.

Which one? Most of them promised jobs and growth, but from what I've noticed it's just like its always been. There's none of them in my mind except possibly Ted

I take it that you don't know him real well, like I have stated before you can't get anyone to take a job for 50-60 bucks a month that can manage their own finances so why would we trust them to manage ours. Ppl do have friends to get them jobs, only to find out they owe everybody in county and always a payday behind. It is so disgusting for ppl to hide behind jobs and church.

Well they decided to raise property taxes after the stupid people of this county voted down the more fair wheel tax. In my opinion, the wheel tax should have never been on a public ballot. That was a chicken crap way of not governing. They should've voted on that themselves.
