Don’t Count Counties Out

by @ 4:39 pm. Filed under Current Events

This morning brought a phone call from a friend in county government with a reaction to yesterday’s post about the imminent demise of that form of government in Massachusetts. He paraphrased Mark Twain, saying “The reports of [the death of county government] are greatly exaggerated. While some of the county sheriffs support the bill that would move their offices to the state Department of Corrections, that sentiment is not unanimous, even among the sheriffs. And certainly everyone else affiliated with county government would have to oppose this bill because even though the legislation makes no mention of dismantling county government once the sheriffs are gone, that would be inevitable. For now, however, the sheriff’s bill is far from a done deal.
