    If you can get the rude commissioner to quit running to the media that would be a plus. I think Lavoy and some others left because of his politicking and leaking instead of governing.

    Gman, the position demands a huge amount of hours on the road traveling to specific events and situations. I don’t envy her, this is a very demanding job and they are lucky to have her.

    I would think she could afford to use her vehicle at $90,000 a year and not need the $400 stipend.
