Tribune: Why are these people on my ballot?
The Tribune's editorial board talks some sense in asking why it is we're expected to vote for a bunch of administrative offices. I agree: offices like Clerk, Treasurer, Surveyor, Assessor, and so on don't require an election. The mayor and county council can figure out who's good for the job and then fire them if they act up. At current, we have to wait for an election and hope that someone better (or at least less objectionable) secures a spot on the ballot. I say good for the Tribune for sparking the discussion.
