Dear Editor:

San Juan County will decide in November if they should accept a new form of government that is promoted by the same group of people that almost bankrupted the county with millions of dollars of legal fees.

The residents of the County need to decide which is more important.

1. Sending millions of dollars to law firms that use the funds for first class accommodations for their staff.

2. Repairing roads and other infrastructure for county residents.

3. Providing health services for the elderly and needy in the County.

Changing the form of government in San Juan County has the possibility of returning the same people to power that have nearly bankrupted the County in prior years with uncontrolled funding of lawsuits that should be the concern of the State government.

County funds should be spent for the benefit of the residents, not for first class accommodations for outside law firms.

Bill Love, San Juan County
