While Willcox can't be expected to be up-to-speed on all EC issues, if he has been paying attention at all or observing Gateley's performance or educating himself on the outrageous legal fees our county pays (an issue that's been at the forefront for years), he shouldn't be seconding a Robert Rowland motion to bring Gateley into a confidential employee issue that has been handled up to this point by outside counsel. A clear conflict of interest by Gateley, which had been well documented on many fronts, required outside counsel - again, this was a subject of many, many meetings which Willcox didn't attend. And if one hasn't been involved, how can one be expected to know the back story?
Willcox appeared confused during much of his first BOCC meeting, he has already mastered the mumbling method of communication, and his continued support of Rowland and Schlegel should be a concern to all of the citizens.
