One can only wonder what goes on in the collective mind of the three teapublicans, namely Foss, Stoltz and Burrows, that currently hold sway on the Ravalli County commission… is it grandiose delusions, hubris, or just garden variety stupidity? Whichever or whatever it may be, isn’t it time to put these people on hold before they do any more damage? The current debacle in the treasurer’s office lies solely in their laps and while it is difficult to say what the final cost to the county will be, it will be due to their ineptness. Their past decisions involving the road department, the Legacy Ranch subdivision and the women’s health clinic as well as the Medicine Tree fiasco are more examples of their single-mindedness that show how out of touch they are with the majority of Ravalli County citizens.
