Finally, the editorial said it hoped the commissioners could find $400,000 of taxpayer money to hold a special election that would be required if our group gets the required 2,000 signatures to force one. Why didn’t Commissioner Bouchat know that a special election would cost money? We don’t want the county to waste any more money on charter but that decision rests with the full Board of County Commissioners. For the Times to characterize us as a tiny motivated faction holding a bayonet is way over the top. In fact, we are trying to keep the politicians from holding a bayonet to taxpayers’ throats should they succeed in getting charter government.
