Does anyone besides me fear our county commissioners having a say so on who is hired? We know that we have them to thank for the GRT fiasco, an issue that should never have happened and that has caused great division in our town and community. Besides, will they choose according to who they can rely on to do them or one of them a favor down the line, or choose someone who's already done a big favor for someone, or choose a friend who needs a job regardless of qualifications, or choose according to pressure exerted upon them by the PTB or choose the candidate based upon any other unacceptable and inexcusable reasoning? We've had and seen enough of these strategies and they are leading this town straight to a cliff.
How long before we go over?

Dave Parks and Don Williams were on the commission at that time. Times have changes, Cynthia.
