Residents should ask governor for appointment

-A A +A
By The Staff

To the editor:

It is very disconcerting that the vacancies on the Levy County Commission still sit vacant after almost four months of waiting for a decision from Tallahassee.   

Everyone should know by now two commissioners were indicted and suspended by the governor in the middle of the fourth quarter of 2008.

It is now almost the end of February and there have not been any appointments to the positions.  

Every time we hear anything in the news the trials for the indicted commissioners has been pushed back.  Our county is unable to conduct realistic day to day business and this has to stop.   

There can be no board dissention on any vote therefore no real discussion can take place; three votes are currently all there are and for anything to be discussed intelligently you need input from every district of the county.

Right now my district (District 1) and District 3 do not have a voice.   This is not only a huge concern for me but should be a real serious concern for all citizens of Levy County and our elected officials.
