I support the proposed Klamath County Charter and the positive changes it will afford our citizens. The charter calls for expanding the number of commissioners to five and hiring a professional administrator. By expanding the number of commissioners we will have an improved representation by district, greater accountability, and more involvement in the process by our citizens. A professional administrator that is qualified to handle day to day management, personnel issues, and work with department heads will free the commissioners to spend time with the constituents working on issues of vital importance to our county. Go to to read the entire proposed Klamath County Charter and decide for yourself.
