To the editor:
The Johnson County Commissioners, county council, councils of towns and cities, school boards, library boards — all of these are part-time voluntary duties.
They provide a service to the public, which is why they receive a payment to compensate for their time and expenses. But they are NOT full-time jobs.
There is no reason for them to receive health care from the public trough — it is ridiculous and borders on immoral/unethical for them to vote themselves an over-the-top benefit like this.
