Walton County Politics Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely We can't believe Walton County BCC is revising their Employee Manual to allow the Commissioners to determine those employees that will be fired. Currently, there is a process that must be followed before an employee is fired and the county administrator has the authority. This is not the Commissioner's job. All Commissioners were told by the Grand Jury in 2015 to stay out of day to day county operations including employee hiring and firing. That's the responsibility of the Human Resources Department . But because there are some key people in positions of authority that one of the commissioners wants fired, she is supporting changing the policy so that she can make the ultimate decision. Because the other two commissioners vote as she does , she will have absolute power. If she can get her people in these positions, well, that wraps it up in a neat package and her plan of total dominance is complete. Actually, her handlers are calling the shots,she's just the patsy. If an employee chooses to try to do their job but doesn't follow her wishes, they are done. Direct involvement in code enforcement cases is included. A code case could just go away or heat up depending on the directions given by the "supreme being." Once all the players are in place, anything is possible. With the BP millions getting ready to hit Walton County, their plan is in place to benefit them and their friends. Some employees will leave if harassed enough. That will suit her just fine. But if they can't run them off, they will be set up and fired. Who suffers? Walton county taxpayers, citizens, families, and jobs opportunities because business will never locate in a place where absolute power has corrupted absolutely. Who might this be you ask? VOTE HER OUT!
