Let’s evaluate how each commissioner is doing so far in their time on the Board. We will rate each commissioner on their abilities in five different criteria. The rating will be on a 3 point scale.
3 = Excellent | 2 = Very Good | 1 = Satisfactory | 0 = Not Good at all
Here are the criteria:
Reasonable/Rational. Does the Commissioner act in a manner that shows rational thought patterns, and does the Commissioner consider proposals is a reasonable manner?
Effectiveness. Does the Commissioner get things done? Do they move the Board toward accomplishment?
Political Perspective. Is the Commissioner focused on the local needs of the County? Do they avoid playing idealistic political games, and do they concentrate efforts on accomplishing county business?
Communication. How well does the Commissioner communicate with members of the public and with fellow Board members? Do they articulate their mission/vision for the County?
Entertainment. How crazy are they? Do they provide comedic content for the ARRRG blog?
Okay. Here we go.
District 1 Commissioner – Politician Jarris Rubingh
REASONABLE / RATIONAL
LOL. No. He is neither reasonable nor rational. He has a simplistic perspective that does not show a single shred of rationality. In fact, he responds to proposals with nonsense statements on a regular basis. Here are some of his greatest hits: “Do more with less”, Reefer Madness, Beetleshit, etc. etc. Negative points.
Politician Jarris Rubingh is not on the Board to get things done. He is on the Board to play defense AGAINST the Board getting things done. Negative one.
Politician Jarris Rubingh is happy to give his political hot takes on all kinds of issues that have nothing to do with his job.
Politician Jarris Rubingh is terrible at communication. At a recent meeting, he tried to chew out the County Clerk. He accused her of not paying the credit card bill. In all actuality, there was no paperwork provided to justify a certain expenditure, so she rejected the purchase. And she should have. Why would Rubingh tackle this issue during a public meeting, instead of talking to her before handin private? What an asshole.
Oh man. This guy is the best. Where would this blog be without Politician Jarris Rubingh?
OVERALL RATING – ZERO
Next time, we evaluate District 2 – Josh Watrous.
