Better without ‘administrator’ | Letters

September 28, 2012 · Updated 2:55 PM

Our County Council is the citizen-elected body that represents us, the citizens.

To represent us effectively, our elected commissioners must have the authority to direct and guide a county manager. The office of county administrator, whose interest are not aligned with the citizens of San Juan County, shall be eliminated and replaced with a county manager who reports directly to and receives guidance from the council.

This will ensure that our county government is responsive to all the citizens of San Juan County. Vote “Yes” for Proposition 2.

Our elected councilors are our only direct voice in county affairs. As our representative, the counselors work full time for us.

Three full-time councilors with authority and paid appropriately will represent our citizens’ best interests effectively and economically. Vote “Yes” for Proposition 1.
