I have a novel idea. Let the voters decide what form of government they want by letting them go to the polls and vote on it. As far as giving this chairman full control of the county- are yall crazy- With Ellis's spending agenda and love for secret meetings your property tax will be maxed out at 20 mills in short time. With maxed out school and county tax plus hospital mills you will be paying more than $5000 a year on $100,000 assessed value. And the county attorney will be most likely be making over $2 million a year off the sweat off your backs.
