  1. “I didn’t read the contract, so I want to hear what they came up with. I want to hear it.” Why didn’t he read the contract? Why does he need a Cliff Notes oral version? Too lazy to read it? Poor reading skills? Can’t understand legalese? Takiyah Douse should have resigned right then and there if commissioners are too dumb to give her guidance on what they want in the contract and then send her to negotiate with Gold Cross and bring back draft for them to review. How do county employees stand the micromanagement and ignorance?

  2. Predictable. When proposals do not proceed through the proper committee process this is what you get. No recommendation or guidance from the committee that is supposed to present the motion. Same situation in the many alcohol licensed that were approved without going through the legal documented process. This is no way to run a business. Who other than some commissioners does not agree with me?
