THE PEOPLE SPEAK - Reservations on Keifer as commissioner

I have serious reservations concerning Willie Keifer running for or being elected to County Commissioner. My personal dealing with him was several years ago when I had a new Lincoln with no brakes that Willie couldn’t fix.

I arrived at the shop one morning to meet with Willie about this problem and I was intercepted by a rather large mechanic around 30 years my minor with instructions to escort me to my car, which he did. Shocked but determined, I got my brakes fixed the next day for a nominal fee somewhere else.

I can’t help but wander what will happen if he has an appointment as a County Commissioner. If it is beyond his expertise or he just doesn’t want to talk to you for whatever reason, will he have a Sheriff’s deputy meet you and escort you out? You would have no recourse if he did. He has proved the desire to pick and choose.

I reckon he probably got away with a lot of that in private business, but in public service you cannot afford him that luxury.
