Opinion: Did Sherry Hall attempt to undermine election process?
Clackamas County's elections clerk has failed in her leadership during the May 17 primary election.
The current primary election ballot counting fiasco completely falls on the back of Elections Clerk Sherry Hall. I don't know whether it was caused by her attempt to purposely undermine the existing election system or just pure leadership ineptness. It doesn't really matter if it is either of these reasons, because she currently has every reason to resign.
Hall has clearly demonstrated that she is not capable of being competent enough to organize the next election. She should just resign and move on.
I would also support an investigation by the Legislature or by Secretary of State Shemia Fagan. I say this because we need to determine if Hall's efforts were designed to undermine our county elections system.
