Just like the rest of us, Berger is entitled to due process. This was not followed and if you want to place proper blame on who is costing the taxpayers money, you only have to look to the three people who voted to get rid of him. He was elected by the public and the commissioners should have left it up to the public to get rid of him. Since there are no laws on the books allowing for a recall election, Woody found a way around the voters and from what I understand, the amotion process was not even followed properly, which is quite disconcerting since Woody is an attorney.
Just think about this for a minute, if the commissioners are given the power to remove their fellow, elected, members from office, what's to stop them from replace them at will and fill their seats with whomever they choose. That just makes a mockery of the voting system.
