Seeing the writing on the wall, Yensen said,
“I’m not interested in being chair of HR.”
Franks then asked the Board to send the Human Resources Committee back to the Committee on Committees.
Yvonne Barnes argued for appointing the HR Committee at the meeting because
“It’s just delaying the inevitable. I have full confidence we could do it tonight.”
Franks pointed out that the man who the GOP majority was set to appoint as Chairman was running for an office which would be incompatible with serving on the County Board.
Franks did not mention the name, but it is Michael Rein, who led the fight to keep the HR Committee.
Rein is running for Woodstock Mayor against Brian Sager.
The vote to send it to the Committee on Committees was 13-10.
