LC Comm'rs: We Don't Need No Steenkin IT
Troy Stone tried to explain why this is a stupid idea. But he speaks Geek, not English, and lost me about thirty seconds into an explanation describing servers, the cloud, CIOs, software updates, etc. DA Jim Martin was a bit more clear. His office depends on it. So do the courts. So do the police. And Comm'r Dan McCarthy pointed out that use of technology reduces the need for warm bidies.
But Tom Creighton thinks one IT person for every 60 workers is one too many. Going along with his cut were Percy Dougherty, Lisa Scheller, Mike Schware and Vic Mazziotti.
Those IT guys are probably all gay, anyway.
Time to break out the duct tape.
Updated 10/11, 3:35 PM: In my original story, I reported that Scott Ott voted for this cut. He voted against it.
