A couple other “old sayings” come to mind; “Advice after mischief, is like medicine after death.” and, “He who bites the hand that feeds him, ends up licking the boot that kicks him.”

It’s important to ask .. what role did the baby have in making the bath water dirty?
Mr. Benson’s almost 20 years on the Board is enough. He’s admitted recently that the Board has messed up e.g. the Board held no meetings with department heads in more than 4 years– and he was its chairman. The buck has to stop there. He has not earned another term.

Eastender is 100% correct and I might add, we STILL haven’t heard why the shenanigans were allowed to go on for so long! Saying what you are going to do “from now on,” isn’t much of a campaign promise. As far as I’m concerned, the baby has already been thrown out. Now it’s time to discard the waters it bathed in!

I don’t understand how Chairman Benson has earned another term? I prefer to keep my money, not giving it to Mel to line his wallet, and by re-electing the Chairman that is going to happen. How can somebody who said that Mel retired and was off the county payroll, but then after some digging by the Globe it comes out that instead Mel is sitting at home collecting more money the administrators of larger counties be trusted? Chairman Benson thinks he is smarter than the rest of us, and doesn’t need to be truthful. Nobles County can afford 4 more years of this kind of dictatorship.
