According to this article in the Conway Daily Sun, the County Delegation comprised of the 15 NH House Rep's for Carroll County, voted 6-4 to reduce the stipend paid to the two commissioner seats up for election this November.
I can certainly understand and agree that we should not be paying for incompetence or rewarding county leaders for reaching into our pockets with supplemental budgets, but this action strikes me as vindictive and counter productive. It also seems to be pointing the finger of blame solely on the commissioners for all the county woes.
It is especially concerning that two legislators, Mark McConkey ( R) Freedom who made the motions and our own Glenn Cordelli, who spearheaded the shortsighted county farm closure, seem hell bent on perpetuating the ongoing feud, instead of reaching out to find solutions to county problems.
I hope that voters remember these things come November. We need collaborative leaders working to solve real problems on behalf of all constituents. We don't need two more years of one sided obstructionism and finger pointing.
