Just a quick comment on Commissioner Willis's decision to hire relatives.
I'll leave my opinion of whether or not it was the right thing to do out of it and let you, the reader, make that call.
does come to mind is the esteemed Commissioner's qualifications to do
the job for which she was elected. She didn't know that a "special"
office position was created to employ a 17 year old, as well she didn't
know that 17 years of age was too young an age to hold a flagger
position? Didn't she have a job description listing duties and
requirements of the job?
Willis also said that she was unaware that the
part time positions were not advertised, though according to Human
Resources Director Marilyn Lewis, the jobs are picked exclusively by
the county commissioners. That poses an interesting question doesn't it?
Well, it really doesn't surprise me that Commissioner Willis didn't know
the above stated stuff. It's pretty obvious when one looks at her
performance and the state of affairs at the County Courthouse during her
time in office. She really doesn't know much about running any other
county business, either!
If you want to really voice your opinion on the Commissioners performance, do it on election day and vote her out of office!
