Without explanation, Hillsborough County Commissioner Les Miller pulled his proposal to drastically change how the county commission chairman is selected each year.
Miller’s plan would have removed any thought to the selection of the chair in favor of a process (visit www.IrreverentView.com for details). For unknown reasons, Miller pulled the plug on the idea late this afternoon. Perhaps supporters on the BOCC of Miller’s plan got cold feet upon learning the board would have had to suspend its own rules of governance in order to get the plan passed as written.
In this match, citizens 1, useless government bureaucrats/elected officials 0.
