However, it appears ever more obvious that the anti-ballot-box establishment bureaucrats may have gained another authoritarian or two on the board since the April Election and are willing to test the political winds right away. Of course, they are the ones insisting "politics" have nothing to do with it. Baloney! On the county board agenda for Thursday is yet another attempt to wrest the coroner's office away from the voters.
ROCK COUNTY SUPERVISORS MEETINGIt is worth mentioning here again that the resolution to abolish the coroner's office failed last month in the Public Safety and Justice Committee, so the matter to press on begins to look more and more like a personal vendetta against the current coroner and county residents (democratic electorate).
MAY 27, 2010 - 6 PM
County Board Room/ Courtroom H
Fourth Floor Court House East
Agenda Item 12 F. Abolish Coroner's Office
But nothing says, "We, the government (versus the people) want more power" than lines 13 and 14 from the county resolution, it reads...
Excerpt (Page 32)At a time when more and more citizens feel the sense of a unresponsive and unaccountable government with too much power held captive by appointed bureaucrats, insider interests and political hacks, certain members of the Rock County Board appear willing to make matters even worse. If they decide to steal the power from the people, we will definitely be going in the wrong direction.
Whereas, adopting a medical examiner system, would allow the County Board more flexibility to determine the structure and staffing of the office.
