longtimeresident commented on County payroll too high

Why does the County have so many well paid Supervisors? Why don't we have a mostly volunteer government Overseer like many of the local City Councils? Let the County Manager do his job and report to elected, but volunteer, community representatives who will oversee Navajo County Governmen…
