With so many new elected officials, how does the county stay efficient?

Answered at the event

Casey Tighe: We’ve got great employees at Jefferson County. As new elected officials come in, it’s great that they bring a new energy and new ideas. But when you have great employees already on the ground, they can help counsel those new elected. I’ve been talking with many of our new officials and they have been very impressed with the employees in their offices.

Lesley Dahlkemper: Another advantage we have is that we make it a point to work together as elected officials. We meet monthly, we don’t hesitate to text or call each other to really think through the complex issues we have ahead. We have a great team with different perspectives, and I think that makes us stronger as a team.
