I have never seen such a debacle in my entire life. Each and every time these Commissioners open their mouths...they diminish...PUBLIC TRUST. So much so, they VIOLATE PUBLIC TRUST.

A comparison to 5 counties out of 88 based on population? POPULATION??????

This is what they feel justifies the hiring a non qualified, inexperienced, uneducated EMA DIRECTOR? Have they lost their minds?

Not to mention, look at the precedent these idiots just set. Every single employee of this County needs to do the same thing. Find you Five Counties and DEMAND they adjust your wages. These idiots just etched it in stone for you!

I can't figure it out. Does this county have a voter base dumber than a box of rocks and these commissioners bank on it or is this county of voters electing in to office "leadership dumber than a box of rocks"?

What a dangerous game!

The people in this county are dumb as a box of rocks. They will either vote along party lines or they vote for the familiar name. Halack should have been put to pasture years ago.

EATTHERICH, what you expect coming from our county elected officials? This county is pathetic. They got an "F" from the Elected Official Sunshine review and hold the number one position for the worst county in the state out of 88 counties in the State of Ohio in public transparency reviews. Their own County website blew them out the water alone in that embarrassment. They have so many violations it is sickening.

Then stuff like this just puts the nail in the coffin. Nobody knows the truth why these commissioners pulled such an negligent stunt when it comes to public safety and unethical standards. It just degrades this county more and more.

That is why Truth101 is imperative that every single tax payer and voter in this county move to the center of the aisle. We have an obligation and responsibility to make certain our elected politicians (party associated or not) do it right. I am a republican and right now, I could care less about party affiliation except to express how damaging Halleck's action of late have become to the party.

This whole matter is sickening. The probability of odds if if there was a National disaster affecting our county, Luke won't even be here and he will be called out. It is pathetic that they did this. What these commissioners did is negligent. You don't gamble with public safety. PERIOD.

Then in the same breath, jack up that position's wages but complain about budget problems. Who do they think they are kidding?

I am surprised that these commissioners haven't been sued for violating hiring practices.

This is another misdirection. Point away from the director and deputy leaving a first responder unable to do her mission. This guy prolly is very good at killing with a team. He is a failure as an office manager. If your first point of contact at ema is not properly trained it is the responsibility of her trainers. That trident doesn't count out here for much. These guys only find employment in a specified area. This isn't it.

Isn't pay normally tied into experience? Since when do we pay someone more Because they're not experienced and we Have to train them??

"I don't find it to be excessive for the job we are asking him to do and the training he has to go through," County Commissioner Tim Weigle said.

Hey, train me, anyone, train me for anything. If I don't already have the background or a previous job in the field, please, pay me More and train Me! (Or doesn't that work for most of us in the normal world and outside local politics?)

Here's a radical thought: eliminate EMA's, and FEMA too. These are ridiculous examples of government gone wild. Instead, create regional corps of trained volunteers to assist in emergencies, and educate people about being responsible for themselves. These bloated bureaucracies are an embarrassment and a waste of taxpayer money - period.

I believe there is a mutual aid agreement along with a plan to respond in case of a lg. scale emergency.

Someone has to be in charge has to be in charge in case of such a large incedent,

In case of a llarge scale incendent like along the east coast,FEMA was able to bring resourses from across the country,

A state or area wouldn;t have the resources or money to organize such a responce.

"Someone has to be in charge has to be in charge in case of such a large incedent,"

It isn't Mr. Newbold. In fact, everybody is giving him authority that he does not have nor carry.
