from the minutes:
"Leslie Rohs, Muskegon County Sustainability Coordinator, introduced herself to the Board.
In a response to Commissioner Scolnik, she gave a brief description of her goals decrease waste and increase recycling efforts by working with departments in Muskegon County."
I know she was being nice but Ms. Rohs shocked most everyone in the room with her self introduction.
Us TeaPartiers looked at each other with rolled eyes and the commissioners (who had just emerged from a planning session that suggested financial Armageddon was just around the corner) had bug-eyes as they wondered what she did and how the heck a new "coordinator" job was created during a hiring freeze.
What exactly she does was still fuzzy in the eyes of most in the room.
I'll try to report back on how this happened and what it costs you, the taxpayer.
