Treasurer Tracie Lloyd Resignation

It appears the Manitron software problem and late tax billing the county has been dealing with has finally gotten the best of Tracie Lloyd. Inside information reported to THE GUARDIAN is that she is probably going to take a lot of institutional memory with her when she departs 1115 Albany for the last time.

The Commishes may have accepted her resignation far too quickly. Without provisions for an orderly transition do they believe the Manitron software problems are going to be magically resolved with Ms. Lloyd's departure? Do the good people on the Republican Central Committee think that they have the knowledge and skill set to interview and select three possible replacements for Ms. Lloyd.

THE GUARDIAN thinks acceptance of a resignation in haste will allow the Commishes to repent at their leisure. This is not a job that you fill with a warm body without adequate knowledge, institutional memory and skills. Tracie Lloyd replaced Zelda Nickle the previous treasurer who was elected county commissioner. That transition was seamless, this one won't be if the wrong person ends up with this job.

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
