I am happy to see someone go against the grain a bit, but I don't really see what this news conference accomplished. I'm all for someone shaking things up a bit, I'm just not sure that Berger is the guy for the job.
I found Barfield's comment interesting. "understanding that you will need consensus from the majority of the Board for any initiative"
He may have not intended it to be taken this way, but I kind of see that as saying whether or not your initiative is beneficial to the county you will need our support, so you need to play nice. Kind of like a shot across the bow.
