"I'm running to change the rules -- literally. The county needs its own 'Bill of Rights'. The commissioners were required by the new Charter, passed by the voters two years ago, to write bylaws. They have not even formed a committee to help them do this. It sounds boring, but these rules will regulate the operations of county government. I have drafted a set of over one hundred rules for consideration and posted them on my website. My ideas include banning emergency meetings by e-mail, requiring public disclosure of commissioner income sources, and creating the position of Ombudsman to act as a customer service representative for the citizens."
