Several of Manatee County's major officials performing poorly

September 11, 2013 

In reading the Sept. 9 Herald I am somewhat confused.

We have a school district superintendent who didn't know he was supposed to release the final version of the budget until he read about it in the newspaper! It seems it was not posted online due to "internal matters." What? So now more errors and controversy involving the school board.

Next we learn that the new Port of Manatee boss has been arrested on a battery charge!

Where does Manatee County find these people? Who does the hiring? Obviously no one does the firing.
