It's been a very long time since I have published anything substantial to this blog. Those of you who know me will know the circumstances that kept my attention elsewhere. I'm not promising that I will be publishing any more frequently than before, but I wanted to take a few minutes to discuss something of importance to me.
I am extremely pleased that the Jefferson County Board of Legislature seems poised to reorganize the Board of Elections. This is the right move at the right time.
Adding to that, I'm very pleased that Sean Hennessey will apparently continue as Commissioner, with a living wage and benefits. Sean is intelligent, thoughtful, conscientious, and hard-working. He stepped into the position at a difficult time, and without notice, when Cindy Corbett became too ill to continue the job. I believe that he felt that it was the right thing to do, out of both his sense of duty and his sense of compassion, and I appreciate both.
His training is not in management, but in engineering, and I'm sure that he has forgone many opportunities for advancement in his career in order to get the job done. He's already helped to conduct three elections within the past four months and all three went off without calamity.
Personal thanks go out to Sean, with best wishes for the future.
