What a wonderful and encouraging time was had by anyone who attended the swearing in of the three new Union County commissioners – Jerry Simpson, Todd Johnson and Jonathan Thomas – on Dec.6 in Monroe. The pride of their families and friends was fun to see and feel. The new board seems to be on track to make some real progress for all Union County residents, and they clearly are moving towards making swift, thoughtful decisions without wasting time and energy on petty, arrogant and unproductive maneuvers.
We’re all rooting for you, and we’re here to support you in your efforts to bring sanity to Union County government. Your interest in hearing the opinions of citizens and then making intelligent decisions based on facts in reaching positive outcomes is refreshing and welcome.
