In response to today’s BN eitorial

WRONG. A county is a geographic entity designated for administrative convenience and governed by its resident citizens. Neither elected nor appointed public servants have authority other than to carry out the duties and obligations assigned to their jobs. Qualifications count. “Plays well with others” is not a qualification. Reading, writing, record keeping, accurate accounting and public speaking are qualifications and, sad to say, sorely missing on the BOC at present.
Since when are public service salaries set by applicants? That is the kind of practice affirmative action requirements are designed to prevent and citizens should not tolerate.
Don’t blame the road when the tires are flat.
