More on the County Executive notion

The Journal now has a more complete article on the County Executive proposal made by Republicans yesterday.

It's hard for me to see the point, and citing Chemung County as an example of how a government should run doesn't impress me much. G. Thomas Tranter parlayed the executive position into close ties with Pataki and D'Amato (and eventually a job at Corning), but also grew a county with a sick city and dull sprawl surrounding it. It's also hard to be surprised George Dentes is still complaining about a budget process that didn't give him everything he wanted.
