Just a quick comment on Commissioner Willis’ 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.
What 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?
She 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 commissioner’s performance, do it on election day and vote her out of office!
