How would private company handle Yuma voting issues?
Let me ask something. Say you own your own company or you are the CEO of a firm. You assign a project to a person in your company. She takes the assignment and goes to work. She spends considerable amounts of money making the project come together.
Then the day comes for your clients to use the service your employee has spent months and thousands of dollars putting in motion. She even brings in outside help to assist her. Disaster strikes and everything your employee planned and put together fails and fails miserably.
All your clients are outraged and you are stuck with losing money, bad press and you become the laughing stock of the county and state. What do you do? You do what any owner or CEO would do, you fire that employee (immediately) and you try to save face and recover with your clients. Hopefully, it's not to late.
Yuma County Election Director Sue Reynolds is so fortunate that she works for the Yuma County government and not a private company, or she would be job hunting today.
What happened on Nov. 6 at Yuma's voting centers was so poorly executed and managed that the county may never recover from it. All the people of Yuma who were subjected to the long lines, heat, missing work and not being able to vote deserve answers. Not spin, but answers, and someone needs to be held accountable.
Yuma County, your reputation is on the line.
