I was disappointed to read that the conservative members of the Board of Supervisors would vote to hire the new clerk-recorder based on political affiliation. The selected candidate apparently has no experience or qualifications other than political orientation. What message does this send to qualified and experienced candidates currently working for the county?

The U.S. Postal Service used to operate this way many years ago; postmasters were chosen by the president, and they were usually of the same political party.

The Board of Supervisors is supposed to be nonpartisan, as is the clerk-recorder office. It is sad to see the current partisan atmosphere of the current county leadership.
