Douglas County's Home Rule Vote, From The "No" Side

Oct 19, 2017

A "home rule" charter group in Douglas County proposes a shakeup in the county's structure. 

If voters approve the change, the three-person board of paid commissioners would be replaced by a five-person board of volunteer county commissioners elected from specific electoral districts. 

It would potentially save the county money (in salaries), and bring the commissioners closer (physically, anyway) to the voters. 

Former commissioner Doug Robertson is opposed to the plan. 

We hear his reasons for his position in this interview.
