On Douglas County Commissioner Nancy Thellman chats on LJWorld.com

While Nancy is a proponent of economic growth in Douglas County , she understands that it can't be at the expense of of our quality of life. We are a rich community, not only because of a growing economy, but because of our attention to the arts, the environment and the well being of all our citizens, and Nancy works to support all of those components.

I don't consider Nancy's responses to Frank's chat to be either crass or inappropriate. Most of us haven't had a chance to see any forum where they were both present, and even if we were, there was probably no real give and take conversation between the two where topics could be explored more in-depth than individual monologues from each candidate.

I think it would be grand if either Frank would reply to Nancy's posts on his chat, or if he would post on Nancy's chat and a conversation ensued. Isn't it about time we hear some real discussions occur in the public forum so that something vaguely resembling consensus occurs? Why is it better to just have each candidate run their flag up the pole and see who salutes? The job of county commissioner requires that they talk to all parties concerned, finding common ground so that things can move ahead. Having a conversation between the candidates would give us a much better idea about those skills above and beyond these "chats."
