The main problem with a charter form of govenment is that the people cannot remove a poor administrator by voting them out.I don't want to loose that option. thank you jack deeken

The form of county government we now have -- a 3-person commission and a long list of elected officials -- was better suited to a much smaller and more rural Cole County, when most voters actually had contact with or personally knew the candidates, and when many of the offices could be fulfilled part-time. We could almost undoubtedly operate county government more efficiently and economically by making changes through a county charter.
