P3: "Supervisors appoint Ayers as new county administrator"

Congrats to a distant cousin in moving up the career ladder.

Anyone remember that a few days ago the Supervisors surprised everyone with this agenda item, bypassing normal hiring procedures and public comment? I'll give you that all that formality doesn't necessarily suit our small-town image, but I'd also like some assurance that the Supervisors take seriously their legal obligation to open government. Our county board has a long, deep culture of acting more like medieval doges than elected representatives, and this move is straight down that alley. How about a followup, Paula?
