All sounds interesting, but where is the substance to these feel-good and sound-good phrases that are absent any merit? This made me curious enough to research more about Kimberly Parker through the internet only to discover more of a mystery. The search showed that for some reason, she changed her name at least three times.
This brings up the point that we really do not know anything about Kimberly Parker. All we know is what she says and what she chooses to tell us. Who were her previous employers who can speak for her and endorse her?
The present and previous county commissioners have owned businesses in this county and, as a result, have the experience and knowledge to be leaders. We know Rusty Granzella, and he knows us and our county. He will be an excellent commissioner with the experience to be off and running in the job on day one.
