Sorry people in Clark County, you just got a new Director of Environmental Services (Columbian link).
State Sen. Don Benton was tapped to become Clark County’s director of environmental services Wednesday in a surprise and controversial move by commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke.
Yeah, he’s pretty terrible as a senator, he’ll probably be just as bad as an anything. At least he’s out of the state’s hair. Wait, really? You’re joking? No.
The sudden move to hire followed an email Madore received from Benton. Madore said Benton told him he will remain a state senator and split his time between the jobs.
Fuck the fuck? In case you’re wondering, I hate that our legislature is part time.
