Pender Commissioner's Meeting

Mr. Brown is never wrong! Someone else is always at fault. Brown’s protagonists simply don’t understand; are not smart enough to understand the problem; did not listen to the discussion; just want “face time” on TV. Does this behavior remind you of an important national politician who always shifts the blame for every problem in the country to others? Even when the deputy clerk to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) was forced to acknowledge that a very qualified applicant for the Board of Health was not able to have her application reviewed by the entire board of commissioners because the application was left out of the commissioners pre-meeting packages. Mr. Brown, raising his decibel level began to brown beat the two commissioners who wanted the process to be fair, and include all the commissioners. In truth, Mr. Brown did not want the lady on the board of health because she had opposed his takeover of the health department in 2010.
Brown simply doubled down, verbally attacked Mr. Tate and Mr. Ward, and insisted that the commissioners actually reviewed the application and approved the rejection. Mr. Ward said that all commissioners should have an opportunity to review any request to any board before approval or rejection of the applicant. How long can Brown go on with his bully and intimidating tactics to get his way? Brown has done great damage to the health department since 2010 and is singularly responsible for terminating the school dental program; diminishing the primary dental program; terminating the only permanent dentist remaining with the health department; killing completely the pediatric care program supported by a Board Certified pediatrician; killing completely the internal medicine program supported by a Board Certified Internal Medicine specialist. In creating this havoc within the health department, Brown has also depressed morale of the staff and created a budget shortfall with the loss of the only revenue producing programs, i.e., physician provided pediatrics and internal medicine. Recall anyone?
