  1. David Hammond Says:

    Jama,

    Could someone please tell me and the many other citizens as to why the Washington County
    Road Superintendent is not an elected office? Was it ignorance or a last minute good ole boy
    favor for prior Superintendent who figured his son would not get elected to this position?
    Not many of our beloved County Commissioners
    can give a valid reason.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I’ll see what I can find out…

  3. Jama Says:

    Alright, here’s what I’ve got:

    According to my source, it is decided by the county commission/county mayor whether certain county offices – such as county attorney, road superintendent, etc. – are elected or appointed.

    That would explain why the county commissioners are hesitant to answer your question…it is apparently simply “at their discretion.”
