Former commissioner airs complaints

Crawford County resident Ed Worley, who once served as presiding county commissioner, has been back in attendance at commission meetings during the month of May. Worley has attended meetings on several occasions over the past year to voice his concerns with the manner in which current county officials run the local government. In his most recent visits to the weekly commission meetings, Worley presented a list of questions, complained about another newspaper’s coverage of those queries, argued with another county resident and business owner, and then came back the following week to respond to some of the accusations made at that time.
