I know there is someone out there who loves her work. She is doing what the tax payers want - cutting jobs in the government. However, the impact this will have on the programs that many people and other local organizations depend on will also be lost.... but she is still hiring for another deputy CEO... I see many people have jumped on that program...LOL.

I'd do her job for half her salary...and not hire a deputy or assistant.
You must be one of her lackey hangers-on.
Geesh, that whole admin/HR group over there for the County is an incestuous, catty lot of gossipy snots who are all jockeying for power...I'd just be real careful whose star you hitch your wagon to...

That's the problem. She thinks she can do the job and all by herself with ni experience and understanding the consequences. I can di her job too so can anybody if all you do is recommend layoffs. Trim the fat? I am sorry but to begin with the county has been cutting staff fir the last few years. There is ni fat. Get it? The county is cutting programs and services by cutting staff. She is not doing this with any planning or analysis. In the end the taxpayers see less services and more debt. People think there is fat but it takes educated and skilled people to do the work. All this county will end up with is higher unemployment costs andmore retirement debt and no one to provide any services. No she does not know what she is doing.

There is a bigger picture here folks; some people are just venting; its an understandable reaction but it does no good. The bottom line is some county jobs save tax payers money. Some county jobs produce millions of local dollars. No matter your opinion of county workers they are necessary and deserve to be treated with respect. That is the bigger picture. We could all work together for the best place to live. This hostility and animosity is feeding right into sustaining the hysteria. Itís called end fighting pit the workers against themselves and against management and what do you get? You get a group that looses focus. We should all be thinking about; a sustainable tax base, with the services that the public needs and wants. This should not be about one CEO after all the county has had eight in ten years. Maybe the county does need a reduced work force. OK do it with dignity and be forthright about it. Stand before the public and say out loud what services do you want? I think we are saying what we can do without instead of what are we willing to pay for. This situation has gotten way out of hand and how it is being handled with only one year contracts guarantees the animosity will continue long into the future. Time for fiscal responsibility accountability honesty integrity loyalty responsiveness and compassion even if you are going to eliminate positions allow dignity and trustworthiness to prevail if the current CEO is the one who can do that more power to her, and she can start anytime.

If she is cutting the "fat" then why is she recruiting for another deputy CEO and why isnt she cutting more management and higher-paid positions?

Well said. However
No one believes that the current CEO Carmel is to be trusted and not ejust mployees but also taxpayers which can see no light at the end of this tunnel.
She lies and is way over her head. Yes there have been many CEOs that the board has hired. Some good and some bad. Now is not the time to settle for bad. We need a ceo who does look at all of those things You stated and more. No one denies that. Carmel is not that person and never will be. The bigger picture is the board wants her to disrespect the staff layoff and cut salaries. It is a wonder that anyone would want to work fir the county anymore. Everyone is venting becauuse they are frustrated and don't know where to turn. It certainly isn't to Carmel. Everyone is fearing they are next to be cut and when you are talking about peoples livelyhood people are angry. Expecially when she can't answer fiscal questions or does not do any real analysis or give creative ideas to assist county thru all if this with everyone working together. It is and has been all about her ego and power. And the board supports this because the are at a loss of what to do too. They need a real leader to help them with the right deciisionsl. Instead they picked a paddy. Carmel has no respect fir the county workers and from what i hear she was that way before she was ceo. I can only asdume out of insecurity. This is not the leader you need right now . The county needs honesty and integrity and a leader that leads by example. You even have one board member which is actually jelous of county workers salaries and yes its Kendall Smith! Si now what? Tax base is great but the taxpayers don't trust the board or the CEO.

I agree that these are tough times and that hiring in the admistration office seems rediculous. But Carmel needs all the help she can get because she can't possibly do the budget by herself and isn't qualified
Problem is that no one will work for her. She ran off her deputy budget officer and she has nobody left but Kristi Furman. What Ajoke. Now there is some high paid fat that should be cut. If Carmel wants to cut she should start right in Hey own office with the former clerk of the board Kristi!

I agree. And the slaps in the face and disrespect to county workers needs to stop. Carmel actually flaunts her power to others by remodeling her office and buying new furniture and hiring new staff all the while she is cutting staff in all departments not bargaining in good faith and basically showing no compassion as she is tearing families lives apart. She is a very hard core cold person. All of the employees need to pack the boardroom. And say enough is enough! Tell the board to get a CEO who can work with the employees to solve the problems of the county to survive until a new tax base is created or cut based on the needs of the public desires and not her own desires IR vendettas.

This nonsense will not end until the county declares bankruptcy and ALL employees are laid off, ALL union contracts are ended.

After clearing the decks, begin again.

Look at what funds are truly available.

Look at the situation in the county, determine what services are truly needed.(Believe me, there are many, many "services" that will not be missed ... except by the "cubicle rats" who will no longer receive paychecks.)

Invite independent contracting groups to bid on providing those services.
Encourage them to design their programs for efficiency, give extra points to proposals that solve long-standing problems in new ways.

Give them office space in buildings the county owns or leases at low rates.
Drop the expensive leases, drop the county cars.

You might just be amazed at the improvement -- and responsiveness -- and improved "service" we'd receive for our tax dollars.

You must be on the employers council. The group who would like nothing better than to see all county services privatized. Your ignorance is amazing. You act like all if the county workers are just buracratic suits who were imported from some government hotline. Where do you think these employees came from? They are professional and skilled in their field and are part of the community with families. What services would You propose be bid on? Shall we go out for bid in public safety? The only purpose of your suggested solution is to break unions. Then what? The same attornies wiuld now be in private practice charging the county millions of dollars for the same services and costing tjlhe county more money. Government is not going away so get over it. There are mandates that are required and laws that require services comply with certain regulations. As for bankrupcy the county would not be obsolved from theitlr pension debt. No matter what. So your comments serve no purpose but to continue the hostility. The community needs to work together and if there are some services that can leagally be outsourced and prove to be a more cost effectivee way to provide better services then they should be reviewed. But to just say that all employees should be gone and start over is stupid and very ignorant.

Read that Kendall Smith is basically putting Carmel Angelo in her place declaring the board controls the agenda not the CEO. Good for Kendall. Maybe the queen is getting knocked off her throne. To make room for queen Kendall. You can't treat people or employees for too long like dirt and not get a taste of yiour own medicine. Carmel will soon get her cumins just watch and see.

It is very tiresome to have the same one or two union stooges constantly bashing Carmel Angelo. Carmel is doing the job that has to be done! The budget must be cut. Unfortunately, that means that positions and compensation must be cut. The private sector has been doing this for three years. Now it is your turn. All you care about is your next pay check, but Carmel needs to figure out how to balance the budget and make it work for everyone.

What makes You thing that only union workers are posting? The public is not stupid and read and hear things going on in the community. Carmel is not respected by many community members not just county workers . Her job is not just about making speeech and talking in circles in the board room. I have seen it. People don't think she is doing the job. Any ceo who temodels her offices while ckaiming she is trying to balance the budget and has no compassion as she slashes county worker jobs is not a leader. As far as the budget it doesn't take a scientist to layoff and cut salaries. WE NEED GOOD FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS THAT INCREASE OUR TAX BASE! There has been ni planning or any other county business except we hearing she is fighting with the sheriff or the unions. So tax paying citizens are tired of that and want to hear creative ideas and Carmel does not have the financial background and everybody knows it. She is trying to figure out what she is doing is more like it. Seriously we need a financial leader and she can start anytime.
Sincerely
tax paying citizen speaking for many not a ,few. I am also not a county worker or former worker.

When the county contracts out it costs more than to have "in-house" FACT! Services wont be missed? Which services are you talking about? The only services that are in place right now are mandated by LAW (at least in HHSA). Please elaborate how this would save money? Do you know what services the county even provides? Have you wanted to get work done on your house and needed a permit?

Maybe that's why Carmel has a brand new hide-a-bed in her newly remodeled office. To show her appreciation.
