The Chairman just won't give it up!

The Chairman just won't give it up!

God bless former Beacon-News reporter Dan Campana for breaking the chairman’s illegal raises story. Her continuing reactions to Jim MacRunnel’s lawsuit over those pay hikes are not unlike an uncontrollable facial tic. 
Her latest tack is to get former county chairman Warren Kammerer and Mike McCoy to sign affidavits claiming they raised county salaries without board consent as well. As if three wrongs will ever make a right. Not only that, but they gave out small $3 an $4 thousand dollar raises while McConnaughay bumped salaries by 50 percent and more.
If we go back to a 2010 Beacon News column, I basically proved that anti-raise ordinance did not take effect until the Chairman came into office in 2004. So the fact that Kammerer and McCoy “did the same thing” is completely inconsequential.
Who the hell is advising her? She’s leaving for Springfield in November making the whole thing be moot.  But that doesn’t stop her from doing her best to justify illegal behavior at every turn and keep the story in the news. If is absolutely fascinating to watch the lengths to which someone will go when they can’t accept responsibility for making a mistake.
More on this in Sunday’s Beacon-News.
