Mr. Throneburg, I am happy to hear that you have finally received some training. Your previous education while impressive, does not qualify you to supervise animal control, especially with absolutely no knowledge of the state laws or county ordinances (I hear that you have since familiarized yourself with some of these). At the time you were hired, you admitted to being afraid of "aggressive" dogs and cats. At the time you were hired, you had no knowledge of state or county laws and ordinances. At the time you were hired, you routinely euthanized animals without being certified for months. At the time you were hired, you were not certified to give rabies shots, but did anyway. I am glad to hear that things have improved.
The fact that the county "panel" agreed to hire the acting county managers son with no regard to how that might look to more qualified applicants (and the public) just says more about how Pender County operates on the "good ol' boy" policy.
