Letter: Why not fix the contract?

By Doug Lehrman, Vancouver
Published: June 14, 2024, 6:00am

County Councilor Gary Medvigy decries the fact that the county manager’s contract does not provide a process for annual evaluation and cites that as one of the reasons he is not running for reelection. The fact is that he, and others whose conservative political thinking is aligned with his, have had many years as the majority on the council. They are the ones who control what is in that contract. Why have they not fixed this problem that he criticizes? They have had the power to do so. Think about that when you vote this August and again in November.
