I listened to the KRFY radio broadcast on 4/25/18 with the three candidates for Assessor. All three were asked questions about themselves, the position and their goals.
One of the statements made by Donna Gow stood out from all the rest. Her description of the Motor Vehicles division of the Assessors office was particularly offensive and speaks to her management style. Her comment about the Department of Motor Vehicles being “…poor, ugly step-sisters of the Assessors Office…” was in poor taste and uncalled for.
Management attitudes like this foment discord and animosity toward the county and open the door to lawsuits. Do we, Bonner County taxpayers, want a manager like this?
