The Northampton Board of Supervisors wouldn’t know a good idea if it poured a bucket of ice water over them.
Hire somebody to market the county? We just paid a so-called Economic Development Director more than a quarter million dollars to do just that. The Board hired him with no marketing experience, no rural development experience, and guess what? Surprise—he took our money, hit the road and left us with jack squat.
Then we lost a Finance Director, a CPA with decades of local government experience, and hired a new guy who just left a job with Homeland Security?
And now Mr. Teeling suggests that the Supervisors hire new grad with no experience, no professional background and no industry contacts—to market the county?
What we really need are a couple of new Supervisors. Anybody up for the job?
