* COUNTY "LEADERS" IN THEIR OWN WORDS - A DOCUMENTED TIMELINE *
***********************************************************
 
In an effort to inform Greene County residents of the facts surrounding the recent loan made to
the Greene County Administrator by our Board of Supervisors, we have prepared a synopsis of the
relevant events over the past couple of years.  It should be further noted that the citizens who first became aware of these facts did their civic duty by attending multiple BoS meetings and speaking out against what they saw as a breach of the public's trust by their local elected representatives.  Instead
of acknowledging the citizens' concerns and taking corrective action, four of the five BoS members
voted at their July 28th meeting to limit further public comment at future BoS meetings.  Thus, we
feel it is now even MORE important that we help inform our fellow citizens, whose First Amendment
free-speech rights have been inappropriately abridged by the very representatives a majority of
Greene County voters elected!
 
The synopsis of events, with references to the actual county government emails released under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, can be viewed and/or downloaded at the link below:

* RESOLUTION TO THE GREENE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS  *
*****************************************************
 
Recently, the appropriateness of the decision by the Greene County Board of Supervisors to make a
loan to the Greene County Administrator has been called into question by some concerned citizens.
As a result, at our regular July meeting on 7/20/15, the Greene County Republican Committee passed
a resolution, which has now been given to all members of the Greene County Board of Supervisors.
This resolution calls on the Board to take immediate steps to resolve this issue, which is currently
leading to negative publicity for Greene County and causing our citizens to lose confidence in their
local government.  You can read and/or download the resolution here.
 
Much of the background information that provided a basis for the above resolution came to light only
as a result of a Freedom-of-Information-Act (FOIA) request, which compelled the release of emails sent/received by individuals involved in Greene County government.  You can read and/or download
this information here and here.
