On January 2nd, the Sheridan County Board of County Commissioners will choose a new Chair. We humbly submit that they select Commissioner Holly Jennings for that position.
Yes, we are biased, but there are solid reasons behind our suggestion:
Of the five Commissioners, Holly Jennings is the only one who didn’t participate in the charade and statute violations when replacing Allen Thompson.
Of the five Commissioners, Holly Jennings is the only one who has not been part of usurping the statutory duties from the County Clerk, Eda Thompson.
Holly is a “people’s” commissioner. She actively solicits public input on topics during meetings rather than shutting the public out.
Holly spends more time in the office, available to staff and public, than the other commissioners.
Holly researches the topics, reads the grants and contracts, and actively tries to ensure that Sheridan County is not bound by ridiculous and costly Federal government strings.
Holly does not vote in lock step with the other commissioners, much to their (and the media’s) dismay. What value is a representative democracy if there is never any dissent?
Most importantly, to reiterate, Holly Jennings is the only member of the BOCC who has not willfully violated Wyoming State Statutes.
Based on the above, we feel that Holly Jennings will make an excellent Chair of Sheridan’s BOCC.
