Letter to the Editor: Attacks on Horne unfounded
May 25, 2010
The recent letter attacking Sue Horne’s executive management experience (Scott Allen and#8212; May 8) is completely erroneous and the facts are easily accessible to anyone seriously seeking the truth.
On the Nevada County website, http://www.mynevadacounty.com, under the Board of Supervisors and#8220;About the Board of Supervisorsand#8221; link, there is a clear and concise description of the board’s duties as follows: and#8220;As authorized by the California General Code: The Board of Supervisors is the legislative and executive body of county government …and#8221;
The county website, clearly describes the board’s executive management responsibilities, stating: and#8220;As an executive body, the Board: 1) determines annual budget allocations; 2) Provides for the compensation of all County officials and employees; 3) Directs an annual audit of all County accounts, boards and records; and 4) Provides policy direction to the County Administrator for the operation and administration of County departments.and#8221;
As Nevada County Supervisor for eight years and serving on the Budget and Audit Review Committees, Sue Horne admirable performed the above executive responsibilities over all the county departments, including the Office of the Assessor. Sue Horne is very well qualified for the position of County Assessor.
