“The department heads for our county agencies are the ones who make this board look good,” said Powers. “Six years is a long time for anyone to wait for a raise.”
It would take more than the able contributions of the department heads to make this board look good, however, if it gives some of its most vulnerable citizens the cold shoulder with frozen dinners instead of hot food and daily interaction with other human beings.
It’s fine for frozen dinners to be delivered in advance of a weather event, such as a blizzard. But if the board members don’t take advantage of this “do-over” opportunity to do the right thing by our senior citizens, we will make certain that before the next election voters will remember the reps’ cruelty and folly.
