Submitting to threats is poor way to run county

-A A +A

I am writing in response to the article “Probe Points to Developing Trend.” I have never seen the report, which the Monitor relies upon so I cannot comment on that report, its author or purpose. But I do disagree with many of the statements contained in the article and to the extent those statements are derived from a report I contend the report is false and inaccurate.
I cannot comment on any advice I gave to the county in my capacity as county attorney but I will say that it is the proper role and duty of the county attorney to advise all county staff on legal issues regardless of whether the staff likes the advice. Opposition to legal advice is almost inevitable because the advice of counsel does not always agree with the wishes of the staff.
The article implies that conflict within the organization is based upon gender and yet it does not even mention the well-publicized conflicts within and among the senior staff when Donna Dreska was the county administrator.
