Change definitely needed in leadership

The Monday letter, “PUD needs King for sensible ideas,” from a concerned PUD customer provides a good list of projects and other concerns that the PUD and its commissioners need to think about.

A rave should be given to Mr. Lider, who compiled the list. The list may not be all-inclusive, but it is a start.

I agree with Mr. Lider that a change is needed at the highest levels of management. A change of commissioners is certainly a good first step. This county has not replaced the incumbent commissioners in many years although there is an opportunity every two years at the ballot box.

As is the case when you have politicians overstay a period of service, not paying attention to their constituents and a disregard for proper use of funds seems to be the result.

Mr. Lider urges a vote for Mr. Bruce King on Nov. 4. I support his desire to make management changes at the highest levels.
