Where Have We Heard This Before?

The heat is on Wiz Miller by the commissioners, in particular by Larry Johnson. It looks like the wasteful position of Public Safety Director and the waste of taxpayer money has finally been exposed.

Wiz's response to the criticism of his lack luster job performance is “I could care less about his [Johnson’s] comments." Hmmm....smells of insubordination, circa Terrell Bolton

This should get fun!

On the other hand, D.A. Robert James and Sheriff Tom Brown have resorted to scare tactics hoping that taxes will be raised. They say nothing about cuts, either in their departments or others, just that if taxes aren't raised, the the boogie man will get you!

I don’t want to give a civics lesson here but WZ Miller does not work for Larry Johnson, he works for the CEO. I am not defending the position of Public Safety Director or the current CEO. Lord knows I wish we had a new CEO tomorrow. But the fact is that Larry Johnson and Lee May are commissioners and they are not the CEO. If they want to run for CEO then they should. The commissioners control the money and they should have input but we can not have several people trying to be in charge. This is the same reason we have one governor and one president.

I do agree with the blog on one thing. This should get fun!

It's "I couldn't care less!"

I hate when people get the wrong.

Sounds like Wizbo doesn't care if he has the big wiz job or not?

The new D.A. is just a male Gwen Keyes Fleming.

If the CEO had an ounce of intelligence, he would back away from this train wreck and let Wiz go down in his own flames. CEO better not try and save this waste of money while calling for a tax increase.

Are you calling the new D.A. a bitch?

If he cant show up on an Officer Involved shooting then what is the point of his position. Once again he did not show up yesterday for the Officer sooting. Chief Obrien was on scene in five minutes checking on the Officers involved. Wiz Miller is a big waste of tax payer money get rid of him.

The PS directors position is another unnecessary position foisted on the county by CEO Ellis. If the Wiz had actually done something like reorganizing DKPD and putting more officers on the street then I would be inclined to support him.
I suspect both the Wiz and O'Brien are intimidated by the CEO and BOC.
To be fired for no cause and losing the cushy county pension is nothing to laugh at.
County policy should be changed to a "cause firing" policy to allow Directors and managers to stand up to the sheer stupidity of the Commissioners without worrying about their jobs.
Best of luck, mates!

False bravado perhaps, maybe he already has other plans, or maybe he simply believes he's untouchable(which raises some interesting questions..........)

The Commission can cut the funding for the CEO's office .
That will force him to cut the "dead wood"

Loflier...we need you on the pension board. The last two reps elected did notihing for my confidence in the running of the pension. We need someone like you with smarts and gonads.

There are some good points of view here, but here is another way to look at it. The commissioners are spending a lot of time managing areas of concern that do not come under their preview. This is all a spin game to keep us from thinking about more important things like: Will we have a pension plan when the commissioners are done with the budget? How much are they planning behind the scenes to take away our sick time and holiday compensation that is worth tens of millions of dollars to us? Reducing our raises as a result of promotions, thus greatly reducing the amount we can retired with? I think you get the point. Because none of the things I just listed William Miller has no control over. Now truth be it told, I could give a flying flip about how much Miller makes because at the end of the day when we all walk away from here and realize that the commissioners have impacted our quality of life forever in retirement, then at that time we all be saying: WE HAVE BEEN SCREWED BY THE BOC, and no will well care (or give a rat's A#% about where Dir. Miller is or what he is doing.

If the BOC cuts the CEO's staff budget he will simply do what he has already done and hide his employees in the budgets of other departments. He will never cut the 'dead wood' because that is all he has is dead wood in his friends and family plan.
