Charter Reform Moving Forward in Jefferson County
I attended a meeting of the Jefferson County Charter Commission last night and testified before the committee about my thoughts on charter government, which we’ll put up on our website shortly. But that is not the point of this post. I just want to commend the members of the Charter Commission and the others in attendance for their dedication to their community. It was great to see people who cared deeply about their home working together to move Jefferson County forward.
Joe Ortwerth, the former county executive of St. Charles, gave an outstanding presentation about how his county went through the same process almost 20 years ago. Seeing him there gave me an opportunity to hand deliver him a copy of this op-ed about St. Charles, which he had to enjoy.
