Calling All Citizens! We Want Your Help

Today I issued a call out to citizens and community leaders today to help the County move forward on a number of important issues. We need your help.

From economic development and zoning, to health care, to taxes, many important decisions across the County are made by citizens and volunteers who serve on committees and commissions on behalf of the Board of County Commissioners. Today, there are many vacancies on these committees that we need to fill, and more will be opening up in the next two years.

We're calling on citizens with the interest and dedication to serve the community to step forward to fill these important posts.

Positions exist on numerous important boards, including:

  • the Community Action Agency
  • Local Corrections Planning Board
  • the Tax Levy Review Committee
  • the Public Library Board, and others.

Please send in applications by January 21 to take on some of these important leadership roles. For full information, and for an application, citizens can access our website here.

I think some of the questions on those applications for a seat on a board are irrelevant to the task at hand

I just realized that having an outstanding tax debt excludes you from being on one of these boards, but if you're going to be the us treasury secretary it's alright.

See how intrusive these questions are?

What group of people are more likely to experience debts - of any kind? Is that the group you want to exclude from being on these panels despite other qualifications?
