County attorney responds to Dems
Well it seems the Democrat caucus can look at the resumes for those who applied for the position of chief accountant... in an executive session or other confidential forum... aka we don't want the public to know what good candidates we passed over so we could hire someone with a matchbook college education and no municipal experience. County Attorney Dick "Tricky Dick" as many call him, sent a letter to Legislator Doug Malone letting him know his educated legal decision.
In the past, the county has always provided resumes under the Freedom of Information Law- because they are just that- public information. The county can redact the name, address, and other personal info- but education and experience are fair game.
The public is getting a raw deal because they are paying for Robin McMillen's salary and they have the right to know her qualifications and that of those she competed with.
Readers have been commenting that McMillen was hired at the wish of Legislator Terry Wilbur. That wouldn't surprise us any.
Perhaps the Dems will take it to court.
