Great news. But who’s going to be running the county while he’s running around in short pants?
the county has departments that are self aware of their responsabilities, they don’t need the county executive to be present to complete their work.
If the county exec is going to be singing Kumbaya and making s’mores sitting around a campfire, I think the employees should be allowed to do the same. I am pleased to see that he won the Silver Beaver Award. Here’s hoping he goes for the Gold. Then he can send it into Cash4Gold and put the money he gets for it into the county coffers.
county employees can do anything they want during their time off, i believe that having a county executive involved in the community is a good thing. I don’t think he needs to send the county any money..the county has plenty of money to run its business, and if more is needed, the county will relax zoning so that more houising and industry can fill the county’s coffers again.
