Best Dysfunctional Relationship
Board of County Commissioners

Staff Pick

There's not much Old Charlotte loves more than formality and decorum. That's why all hell broke loose when the county commission voted 6-2 to axe County Manager Harry Jones - and then didn't allow Jones to speak before he left the dais. Three commissioners complained mightily that Chairwoman Pat Cotham had insulted Jones; Dumont Clarke's feelings were hurt because he wasn't included in the pre-firing back-room finagling; and Kim Ratliff announced that she didn't want the commission to hire a white man to replace Jones. Who needs soap operas?
