Demand the County Commissioners Resignation and a Court Order to Stop Them
After reading everyone's suggestions, news items, and commentary I thought I would put in my two cents worth.
We all need to pick up our phones, our pens, and our computers and send letters, emails and make calls, write the papers, television stations, etc. demanding the resignation of the county commissioners. This has to end once and for all.
If this situation is, what many are lead to believe, which is either incompetence or corruption at the most intolerable level, then all of the Commissioners need to go. In fact, we need to run them out of the county by making sure that every citizen believes that these commissioners can no longer manage our County Government like Walton County is a Banana Republic.
Even if this whole matter is a result of the workings of Ralph Miller and his slippery ways, who appears to have misled Commissioner Brannon, then he best return the money he made off of this transaction and he should be disbarred.
Meanwhile the County Commissioners should still leave as no lawyer should be able to outsmart them and make them look like idiots run our county government Commission. If the county commissioners are idiots (which after this transaction, it seems they are), then the commissioners have got to go.
The commissioners should resign, the County Administrator take the county over for the time being, until a special election is called to replace them all.
Who knows how many other "personal agenda items" are "being worked" in the county government at the hands of these High School Class Presidents who appear to operate as though they are looking after Bake Sale money. We can not afford for millions of dollars to be wasted at the hands of these individuals. This is a "bad deal" that we taxpayers know about. How many more "bad deals" are hidden from our view?
At a minimum, during any ethics investigation, the Commissioners should be suspended with no pay. And, there should be a court order that prevents the Commissioners from spending one more dime of OUR MONEY until this matter is settled.
Pick up your pens, computers and phones folks, we can make this happen for the good of all of us.
