Awhile ago the Kandiyohi County Commissioners voted to not accept the 3 percent raise that they were entitled to. I want to publicly commend them for their action. I understand that the amount is infinitesimal to the overall budget of millions of dollars the county spends, but it shows that the board is aware of the dire straits we are all facing with the economy. The county commissioners of Stearns County (St. Cloud) did the exact opposite and accepted the raise.
I commend our county commissioners!
