Huzzah, huzzah… this is long overdue.
The Washington County Board will reduce its size to 26 members from 30, effective April. In a 16-10 vote at today’s meeting, some supervisors said they opposed the measure because they wanted an even greater reduction than proposed.
A 26 member board is still too large, but it is worth recognizing that they voted to do it themselves. Kudos to the 16 board members who voted in favor of this. Now let’s work on reducing it further.
