    Hutchens should automatically approve any county employee for a permit to carry due to the inherent dangers present at the Civic Center. ha. If you work for the County and don’t wear a badge you can put that on your wish list. Remember, when your life’s in danger the police are only 5 (sometimes 10-15) minutes away. In the meantime keep paying your taxes and voting.

      Issuing permits to carry for County employees is the first good idea I have heard!

      Frankly, I don’t know if I was more scared to leave the building or stay in the hostile work environment the BOS has created.

        As a by-product the permit to carry might also help create a very hospitable, gregarious and polite atmosphere in the workplace. That never entered my mind. Thanks for thinking outside the box.

    It’s super scary to work there knowing these politicians and their appointees only care about their PR spin and don’t give a damn about administering a government.

    I was not comfortable leaving my life in their hands. Any emergency – they will bungle. I had no confidence after years of watching their selfish incompetence.

    That whole story about an IT bug is a lie. They were consulting their image consultants during an emergency!

    Makes me wonder how long the rumor of gang-bangers with guns hanging among the homeless was circulating before the county decided to notify their minions. #CountyWorkerLivesMatter

    “That morning, Atkinson also shared a draft memo on the situation”

    Uh-oh. That’s no bueno! “Drafts” are part of the deliberative process according to Spitzer and are NOT suitable for release (according to Spitzer) for fear of stifling creativity. She should have waited ’til it was published. That’s the sole reason for litigating the Voice PRA request, right?
