Warm Fuzzies 

On Monday, County Commissioners abruptly and unexpectedly dismissed County Administrator Dave Kanner after five years on the job, citing a difference in management style. The firing comes on the heels of a contentious contract negotiation with county staff and a prolonged pissing match with the district attorney's office. We're not going to pretend to know all the reasons behind the commissioners' 2-1 decision to dismiss Kanner. As far as we know the county commissioners may well be justified in their decision to part ways with Kanner, however, the immediate explanation given to the daily paper by Commissioner Tony DeBone didn't do much to instill confidence in the process. Specifically, DeBone told The Bulletin that Kanner needed to give staff more "warm fuzzies." To which we say, huh? We thought the commissioners were running a multi-layered government organization, not a kindergarten classroom. Then again, maybe they'll feel differently about it all after they wake up from afternoon nap and have a snack.
