How important is that job really?

The county fired our first county administrator a few weeks ago.  He lasted nine months.

Is it strange that we have heard nothing about finding a replacement?

Is it even stranger that he was fired because of “personal issues”?

One would think that they would have picked up on those “issues” as part of the hiring process, but then again that would require knowing how to vet candidates for senior executive positions.

Will we see our former city chief financial officer reincarnated as the county administrator?  She has friends over there.  Maybe we could see some of her creative accounting somehow balance the budget over at the county and children’s  hospitals.

We deserve better

    The county commissioners recently said they are moving forward with the same out-of-town search firm that found Norwood to now find his replacement. The commissioners say we will not pay a fee this time because Norwood didn’t work out. I don’t know why they think the search firm’s judgment and services will be any better this time around.
