This is what you get when you keep electing the same people as supervisors that only care about protecting their political pals. The supervisors refused to go after Peter Stone from Oppenheim for taking money for the county he was not entitled to, they also refused to actively pursue the $3 million that disappeared from the EDC and CIC and now they have appointed the same people as board members of the CRG. The people who vote this year should be asking the candidates if they are willing to pursue this money and those who were involved in it walking away and that would be the person to elect. This year the voters have a chance to elect 8 new supervisors and that could result in making the entire process open and honest. But the voters will as usual elect the same people back to office.

Fulton County transparent??!! - a sad joke. This self-protective bureaucratic component of "government" should be defunded , voted out, and completely replaced by financially conservative representatives who have the best interests of the county at heart without taxing the already-strapped inhabitants out of house and home.

Absolutely agree Ron about not voting in the same scoundrels who seem to do nothing to protect the taxpayers. Stop re-electing incumbents people !! You are only going to get the same results. That goes for any official crying for re-election, including that lying mayor in Gloversville with his 4 years of disasters.

Sorry to see that the chairman of the board of the CRG is being uncharacteristically tight lipped on the whole situation. No doubt the FC supervisors though things changed enough to give them $115K, but all we have is the same old dog and pony show, just with a new dog and pony.

It's one aspect to get the voters out, but we also need better candidates to run.

Anna, that is why we need a "none of the above" lever, or icon on the touch computer screen.

Typical respose drugs. Easy to say what we shouldn't do or who we shouldn't elect. Any idiot can do that. Tougher question is what we should do and whom we should elect.

usedto, be sure brain is in gear before you start punching at the keyboard. "None of the above" IS on the ballot in other "civilized" nations. So please tell us how do you insure that the "right" candidates are on the ballot????

I'll wait but I won't hold my breath for an answer - you are just a lot of noise

You skirt the issue once again. If you elect no one, who fills the office? Give us answers, not obscure rationalities. Because it's on other ballots makes it right? That's a stupid statement. I never said to make sure the right candidates are on the ballot. You made that up. I asked you to let us know whom to elect. That's an old question you never answered. The brain in gear thing is one of your old cliches. Stay away from them in that as it is an admission that you have no original thoughts

usedto, you have jello for a brain. IF "none of the above" gets the most votes -- another election with different candidates is held. Geez, does mommy still wipe your butt ??
