WORST MEMBER OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT
COUNTY MANAGER HARRY JONES

Staff Pick

As CL columnist Tara Servatius so neatly put it, “Would somebody please just fire Harry Jones?” The county manager drew the community’s wrath when he accepted a $38K bonus on the heels of cutting county jobs and denying raises for the rest of his serfs. Add Jones’ slow-on-the-uptake response to the DSS embezzlement scandal, and his attempt to silence a critic by forwarding the critic’s e-mail to the man’s corporate boss, and you get the picture. And who could forget how Jones & Co. waited until nearly the last minute to tell CMS, Parks & Rec, and the Public Library that they needed to gut their budgets? It was a textbook case of poor management, if not outright incompetence, and is reason aplenty for Jones to be shown the door.
