Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters will be the guest on a Newsmakers Interview Program on AM 1180 today.
Winters talks about his controversial decision to split of the duties of the Chattooga County Public Works Director’s position and hire his former political rival Joe Reed as “Director of Roads and Bridges” and make former Public Works Director Lamar Canada Director of Sanitation, Transportation and Code Enforcement.
Winters said, “in local government, just about every decision you make is controversial. This is one that made sense to me.” Winters said that his goal has been to separate duties within county government to improve efficiency. Winters said that Public Works staff is down between 6 and 8 employees from four years ago and justifies the additional administrative salary saying that money has been saved by cutting back on those positions.
Winters also talks about his relationship with the other elected officials in Chattooga County in reference to the recent budget battles that have taken place.
You can hear the complete interview today at 8:15 AM on AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio and again this afternoon following the Trading Post Program in the Noon Hour.
