SLO County Supervisors select new public works director, Hill back at work

Supervisor Adam Hill

The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to do a background check and attempt to negotiate a contract with the board’s undisclosed choice for the job of public works director.

In Nov. 2017, the board voted unanimously to appoint then public works director Wade Horton to the county’s administrative officer position. On Tuesday, the board went into closed session to consider several candidates vying for the public works director job.

On Tuesday, Supervisor Adam Hill arrived late at the first board meeting he has attended since his Feb. 9 announcement that he would be taking time off to deal with mental health issues. Following multiple allegations of bullying and threats, Hill said he needed to take time off to deal with his depression and frequent outbursts.

    One would think you would do a background check on someone before attempting to negotiate a contact with someone. Wouldn’t the norm be pair down your selection to a few, do background checks, possibly eliminating some due to the checks and then decide who to being negotiations with? Since they now have already gotten to the one an only what happens if the background checks brings up red flags? I also suggest a simple Google search on the person, had some agencies just done that on recent hires the major mistakes made might have been avoided. Then again what it takes to get fired in the public sector is remarkable.
