Letter: Sherry Hall's managerial incompetence permeates elections
According to former President Harry Truman, "the buck stops here." He made this statement that responsibility for executive issues was eventually his.
Now, let's fast forward to Clackamas County Clerk Sherry Hall. We have yet another electoral faux pas at her office, as Oregon City voters received incorrect pamphlets for an upcoming mayoral election.
Hall's oft-demonstrated managerial incompetence needs not to be gone over again. When asked about continued errors, Hall's attitude is basically: "No big deal." Hall should be held ultimately responsible for management of elections in Clackamas County. Hall's lack of supervision seems to have permeated the body of her staff. While Hall continues to sign off on the continuing gaffes, members of her staff continue the process of incompetence by producing error-filled work.
After the November election, when hopefully we have another county clerk in command, addressing what seems to be some baked-in staff incompetence that must be addressed immediately by whomever succeeds Hall.
