How has Minnehaha County Auditor Bob Litz’s attendance been?

I can’t speak for Mr. Litz, because I don’t work in the county administration office. But several people who do, say that they don’t see much ‘office time’ by Mr. Litz. There are plans for the auditor’s office to hire another employee. I can’t find the specifics of that position, but I was told that it was a ‘finance’ manager.

Now, I am not going to rail on Litz about perfect attendance, because I don’t know all the details (but if someone does, please forward it to me) but I would like to give some advice;

1) When you are you are an elected official who manages a very important department for the county, my advice would to at least put in 40 hours a week in that office. With the long lines in the department across the hall from you, can you imagine if our county treasurer didn’t show up very often? You would have a VERY irate public.

2) Why are we considering hiring another manager for the auditor’s office when we can’t get it’s head honcho to show up?

If his attendance is an issue, Mr. Litz needs to realize that this isn’t like his private business, he works for the taxpayers now. Show up. Work. Thank You.

I would also like to give a H/T to the county for posting their meeting videos online. Not sure how long they have been doing this, but I have been doing catchup. The videos are a little grainy, but the audio is perfect, and unlike SIRE, when you push play, the meeting starts immediately. BRAVO!

Another superfluous .gov leech for the lampost or guillotines.

If the accusations are true (not sure) I can’t figure out how hard it would be to show up at 8 AM, shut your office door until lunch, then repeat the process until 5 PM. Of course, this is the same guy who said the BIN sign in HIS yard was his wife’s, not his. LOL!

He’s got comp time for when he rigs an election. The EC passed when he took the votes home and got creative. Huether will be reelected when he includes names off headstones.

Tell me how “we” (the tax payers) came to decide that there was a need for another FTE? I remember when the Treasurer had to make the case to the County Commission on more than one occasion. Maybe I missed this discussion, but I have no memory of this FTE being vetted through the Commission.

RAC, I know, I have been trying to find it in the CC’s agendas, and I can’t find anything.
