Treasurer must be held accountable

| October 20, 2006 12:00 AM

To the Editor:

I have some questions and I think the residents of our county deserve some answers.

Why has the current treasurer of Lincoln County failed to present balanced reports to the county commissioners? Why aren't the county commissioners demanding an accountability from the treasurer?

Why are there serious deficiencies for the last several audits and have they been corrected?

Elected county officials are accountable to the public. I think the public has a right to know about the financial health of our county, don't you?
