Our leaders too Ken. I support you in this.
Open borders Harvey? Yes these killer opiates are coming in on delivery trucks to City Market, Safeway, Wal-Mart and Walgrens. Your ignorance on the subject of addiction shows every time you post your opinions on the subject.
I said before the election and repeat here now. I respect the decision of the American people. I hope that President Trump will work for all of us and that we as a country will come together and support one another.
I said before that the true measure of what Brita did would be measured by the final numbers. It would appear that she stuck to her guns and got Peabody to pay what was owed without any special treatment. Nice job.
Why private lawyers required and why/how a public official allowed to sign confidential contracts are separate questions regardless of who paid the final bill. There is still some smoke here that needs to be looked into. Treasurer Horn still needs to learn that she works for the people of this county and owes them a full accounting of her reasoning and actions on our behalf. Transparency demands nothing less.
So you took this oath. These things do not have an expiration date if you fulfill your commitment.
Read again the part about supporting and defending the Constitution. I would say that this would hold up as your consent to be governed.
"I, _, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).
You were once in the Military right Eric?
If it turns out that Brita Horn accepted the exact same settlement approved by the Judge back in July and tries to charge the taxpayers for her legal representation then she should resign or be removed. Too many games being played by our county treasurer for my comfort.
Transparency? I think not.
Chuck, being told there is transparency and actually seeing the numbers that prove transparency are two different things. I will believe that everything is above board when I actually see the final numbers.
Telling me "There is no lack of transparency when details are forthcoming." does not cut the mustard.
It depends on what the resolution was Matt. If she finally accepted payment without Peabody paying the entire interest and late fee assessment then all she did was blow her own horn and cost all of us money. On the other hand, if she held firm and got Peabody to pay the entire amount owed then she did a "Good Job"
Which is it Brita Horn? The public will find out sooner or later and your career hangs in the balance.
Yes John, I got cancer at 23 because I was an avid sky diver. Or maybe, just maybe it was because I drew the wrong lottery number in the cancer lottery.
