    I think the contract is indicative of Mr. Oliver’s qualifications. He is both a Certified Public Accountant and a Professional Engineer. He also has a Master’s degree from the MASSACHUSSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY or MIT for those of you who do not know. MIT is on the same level as Harvard or Yale! He also has years of experience. Why don’t we give the man a chance and see what he can do for the County?

    Good grief! That’s an employment package that any Madison Avenue executive would envy. What’s up with that?
