Time for manager to go


Referring to Jack Van Dien’s Nov. 30 guest opinion conversing with “Frank the Farmer,” I agree wholeheartedly that burdening the businesses of Douglas County with a new business tax is not the right way to solve the County’s budget woes. It is indeed adding insult to injury after last year’s $24.7 million liberal bounty to Riverwood Redevelopment.

I suggest that it is time for Dan Holler to go. The commissioners who voted in favor of the $24.7 million gift to Jay Timon one year ago should answer for their bad judgment by renouncing their support for Dan Holler’s bad fiscal management.

Unfortunately, these same commissioners still believe that Dan Holler is a financial genius, and standing on principle, as demonstrated by the proposed business tax which is perceived to be a done deal, they continue to affirm Dan’s confusing ramblings articulated in perpetuity about county finances. That is what the proposed business tax represents this year’s installment of Dan’s confused ramblings articulated in perpetuity. New blood in the county manager’s position would go a long way in setting a new fiscal course to help us solve the problems that Dan has saddled us with.
