“Proud Past, Frightening Future”

Former Clark County Human Resources Director Steve Foster, who left the job in 2001, wrote a mock job posting on Clark County Citizens for Good Governance, a Facebook group.


The post is filled with obvious references to the decision to hire Sen. Don Benton as the director of environmental services. Which, then-Administrator Bill Barron predicted, “will devastate the organization … This is bypassing every human-resource process we have for hiring department heads.”

Which brings us back to Erik Hidle’s post from earlier today.
