The Gazette's "political" blogger makes his case that offices such as the county coroner's should be stripped away from voters because it is an administrative office. Based on that premise and considering that his view meshes tightly with the power-grabbing bloc on the county board, chances are very high that the administrative offices of DA and Sheriff's office will be next in line to fall.
Gazette blog excerpt:Or in the administrative role of sheriff, district attorney, clerk or treasurer. So why is the coroner always first to be continually singled out?
I am totally unable to comprehend that whether a person is a Democrat or Republican makes any difference whatsoever in the administrative role of the coroner. Can you help me understand? We need and deserve ACCOUNTABILITY of the coroner.
In fact, if the voter's rights are canceled tonight in favor of a phony non-partisan appointment process, it would be gross discrimination, both political and personal, not to offer the same level of board accountability and professionalism (facetious) to all elective administrative county offices.
